Today I accomplished one of my DIY projects I have had on my list a long time. Super inexpensive storage containers for Solomon’s closet. He’s recently outgrown his littlest baby clothes, and I need a spot to store things he doesn’t need yet and the aforementioned outgrown items. To do this project you’ll need: Scissors… Continue reading Bump on a Budget- Dirt Cheap Storage
I cannot express in words the wonder I had in returning to a place of which I only had small pictures in my mind – passages of time and “smemories”. Smemories are smells that trigger a memory for me- as a “super smeller” these smells are ingrained into my mind until a sneaking smell comes my… Continue reading Honduras
It has long been my suspicion that you can always count on people’s laziness. My friend Jaci reminds me I once said “Laziness is not the path to awesomeness.” This is why I can park with confidence in the back of a parking lot with minimal fear of being door dinged. It is why if I’d rather… Continue reading The common sense revivalist
Why is it that I feel more close to family in the Fall? I know I can be busy all year long, including the Fall, but for some reason as the temperatures and leaves drop, my heart is filled with gratitude. I feel like the weekends slow and I have little moments that last longer than any other time of year. Maybe it is the promise that everything changes. No matter what change is always around the corner, full of promise and good. Even if it is a bad change, it all works together for my good in the end. My sister in love brought me a mocha today, I played Scrabble and had tea with beautiful friends and saw such a beautiful promise of young ladies growing up to be such wonderful women, wise and loving. I’m listening to some calm music that makes me feel like I’m going to be okay. Through tough times I know that I know that I know, everything changes, except the Faithful one. He who created Fall, everything I love, and me.
All the opportunity in the world to rectify past error, open up a whole new world of character development, start afresh with an all new cast, and I’m sorry to say an opportunity squandered. Transformers Age of Extinction is the continuation of a poorly written, loosely plotted out franchise rip-off. I hate to be cruel… Continue reading R&R Transformers 4 Review
It isn’t a huge surprise that in the year of blog and jog, I don’t drink much soda. However on a hot day at a BBQ after church I make an exception for one thing- Ice cold Coca-Cola in a glass bottle from Mexico. Is it the glass, or the cane sugar, or the childhood… Continue reading Mexican Coke
I made these pretzel bites from Life Blessons. It seemed like a pretty straightforward recipe and had a very warm reception from the teens that scarfed them down in about 15 minutes one Sunday night at my house. They were soft, and I make no qualms about having eaten them Saturday night for dinner! I… Continue reading R & R Recipe Review Pretzel Bites
