Day170

365 Days Outside > 170-175

Day 170 I kicked Shaun out out of bed bright and early and made him drive across town to buy a bike trailer at a yard sale. It was only $10!  I didn’t want someone else to get it first! We took our first family bike trip later that afternoon and both kids had a…

Some Changes

Just in case any one is paying attention. I am in the middle of switching web hosts, so there might be some weirdness around here for a couple of days. It could be a week before everything gets squared away. I’m still waiting on my domain name to transfer over. I could use a little…

Me Myself & I

My friend Kristen is co-hosting a link up party today called “Me Myself & I”, and I thought it would be fun to join in. You just answer the 5 questions and link up! Easy enough. Here are my answers. What is your biggest phobia? My biggest fear is sort of embarrassing, because its something…

365 Days Outside > 165-169

With Juniper’s foot injury earlier this week, we have been taking things easy around here. She is doing a lot better, but she’s definitely ready for her foot to stop hurting. Yesterday when I got home from work, she was dancing and twirling around in circles without much of a limp. It won’t be long…

Little Clare

I wasn’t planning on posting this drawing until Monday, because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise. But I’m fairly certain her mama doesn’t read this blog, at least not that I know of! I will be giving this drawing to her at church on Sunday. Often times I see a photograph that is just…

Drawing in Progress

How about a sneak peek at a drawing I have been working on? I think my favorite part of working full-time is having a lunch break. A whole hour to myself. I should probably eat something during that hour, but I usually just sit at my desk and draw. This is one of several that…

Biking Home

Today I did something that I have been saying I would do for weeks and weeks. I biked home from work! It’s only 5 miles, which to hardcore bikers I’m sure sounds laughable. But for someone who is definitely not in the best shape, it’s a pretty big accomplishment. And it wasn’t so bad. Ok,…

Something New

Today I began a new chapter in my life. It was my very first official day back to work full-time! I have to admit, it is a huge relief mentally. I love my kids, and I enjoyed my time as a stay-at-home mom, but I feel like I’m just better at working. I’m actually good…

Watercolor Silhouette

I had been talking with Chelsey from The Paper Mama about doing a custom drawing for her, and she had the idea of doing some silhouettes instead of a pencil drawing. I jumped at the chance to try something new! I wanted to do something with a little color, and I’ve been dying to experiment…

365 Days Outside > 158-164

Day 158 We arrived at our camp site in Ohio today. The kids were so glad to get out of the van. My sister brought some glow sticks and we had a little dance party in the driveway. Day 159 Our camp site had a water faucet right next to it, and the kids pretty…
