Some Projects and a Sneak Peak

Once again I find myself well into the new year with a small pile of Christmas gifts that still need to be mailed. (At least it isn’t June yet!) That apron took me SO long! If I ever make another apron, it will definitely be a simpler pattern. I’m hoping to finally have everything wrapped…

{Love This House} The Bathroom

Ok, so this post has been a LONG time coming. I started tearing down the wallpaper at the beginning of October, and I’ve had the painting mostly done for a couple of months now. I just had to finish the yellow… and let’s face it, I’m a lazy britches. ANYWAY. Let me introduce you to…

365 Days Outside

I’m pretty excited about this book I got for Christmas from my sister-in-law. I really don’t think I have to explain to you all how great it is for kids (and adults!) to get outside. Even when it’s cold outside, it just makes our day so much better to get out there. This book is…

27 Before 28

I had a lovely birthday this year. Shaun and I went out to dinner yesterday (Kid-free! Thanks Oma!) at El Maquey and ate some yummy mexican food. I’ve got a nice big stack of new crafty books just waiting for me to read them. (A combination of Christmas and birthday gifts.) And of course, a…

Knitting With Juniper

A few weeks ago I decided to try and reteach myself how to knit. I had big dreams of knitting up some beautiful fair isle Christmas stockings. (Maybe someday.) After a good hour of yelling at my yarn and getting laughed at by my wonderful husband, Juniper decided to show me how its done. So…

Nine Months

Guess who is nine months old now? (Well, this post is a few days late but whatever) It’s funny how when you are pregnant, nine months seems like FOREVER, but after the baby is born it seems like no time at all. Flynn is one extremely curious little guy. He is far too interested in…

Traditions

We started a new family tradition this year. Christmas Eve + Warm Fire + Hot Chocolate in Santa Mugs + Roasted Mini Marshmallows + Christmas Records = A lovely evening with my sweetie. When the kids are older, we’ll let them join in. Maybe

Christmas Love

Oh Christmas, how do I love thee. I love the lights, decorations and yummy treats. I love the challenge of finding that perfect gift for loved ones. I love spending time laughing and playing with family. I love starting new traditions. And most of all, I love that Christmas represents the most amazing gift ever…

{Recipe} Smores Bark

We have had an unusually high amount of chocolate around here lately, with the holidays and all. After we made peppermint bark last week I was in a chocolate melting mood, and we had some mini marshmallows leftover from Juniper’s birthday party so I thought I’d make some smores bark! Seemed like a good idea.…
