Haven ’14

07.17.2014

Woah. That was a whirlwind. Haven just happened, and I’m still recovering. The girls and I can happily say it was another successful year. We can’t thank our sponsors, speakers, or attendees enough for making it happen, but now I need a nap. Wanna take a little Haven tour? Beth, me, Kristin, Traci, Sarah, and […]

Kitchen Stations

07.07.2014

I’m usually one of those “don’t like anything on my counters” people. However, I was getting sick of lugging stuff in and out of cabinets for use, so I finally broke. We’re creatures of habit in this house, so I needed to develop some stations on the counters to help with my laziness and to […]

Well, happy Friday! And Happy Fourth of July! Hopefully, you’re celebrating with family and friends. Today’s flashback is some birthday parties I’ve documented.

Fourth of July Menu Ideas

06.30.2014

Happy “countdown to Fourth of July” week! It’s one of my favorite holidays of the year because I’m pretty darn patriotic. It makes me feel all, “I’m so proud of my country!” Of course, it also helps that I’m not working, and I’m in complete relaxation mode. I’m afraid we won’t be celebrating with a […]

Flashback Friday

06.27.2014

So the new projects around here are coming along slowly. Not even really surely at this point. In an effort to be all, “Hey, remember when I did that?” or “You’re new here, have you seen this?”, I thought I’d do some flashbacks of projects past.  Some DIY bookshelves, anyone? Unfortunately one of the shelves’ […]

Kirkland’s Summer Table {$250 Giveaway}

06.25.2014

Well, hello. It’s been a long time since my last post explaining things. I know. I can’t thank you enough for your messages, prayers, and encouragement. I have no doubt that they’ve pushed me to this point. I am nearly done with treatment (please, Lord), and I am less sick than I was a couple […]

Well, here it is

04.21.2014

Thank you so much for all your messages and e-mails checking in. I apologize for essentially abandoning you, but I’ve had good reason. I have been diagnosed with Stage 1 cervical cancer. There. I said it. I hate saying it. It seems like an oxymoron to call myself a blogger who is a private person, […]

Ain’t Life Grand?!

03.31.2014

Well today it is! Some blog friends and I have dedided that you should have some good ol’ cash in your pocket and spend to your heart’s delight. Or don’t spend it. Perhaps just feel guilty at all of it. And, course, my favorite part (besides the cute graphics here) is that it’s a small […]

An Update

02.15.2014

I wish I had the time (and energy) to thank each of you individually, but I’m afraid this post will have to do. I’m two weeks into recovery, and I’m finally starting to feel like I’m human again. It’s been a rough–and I mean rough–recovery, but your messages, e-mails, cards, etc. have been the light […]

Valentine’s Paper Cake

02.14.2014

My little one is in her last year of elementary school, so this is her last Valentine’s party. We came up with something a little snazzy for her Valentine’s box this year, and it was quite easy to do! How ’bout a little Valentine’s cake? The supply list is quite simple. I bought a couple […]
