So thankful

I would like to take a minute and shout to the heavens how blessed and thankful I am. There are so, so, so many things to be thankful for: A wonderful hubby who has put up with me for more than 10 years Two beautiful, happy and healthy girls Wonderful parents who are so involved…

Embracing the good news

Continuing to read “The Hole in Our Gospel” by Richard Stearns. Good, good stuff. Here’s a question he poses to readers: “What if each of us decided with renewed commitment to truly embrace the good news, the whole gospel, and demonstrate it through our lives–not even in big ways, but in small ones? What if…

Sushi and me

Hubsters and I ventured out on the town last night without any kids. I asked him if he was feeling adventurous. I think he was a little sad when he realized I was talking about trying the new sushi place in Manhappiness (Green Tea Sushi, 1120 Laramie St). I was so, so, so happy. He…

Sew me

What a wonderful day! Although it’s been very, very quiet without the girls, I’ve gotten lots of stuff done. I also set some time aside to work on sewing. I’m getting a little bit better at making the zipper clutches from Noodlehead. I’ve still got to figure out how to get the zipper ends to…

Aaaahhh home

I hope everyone had a magical Christmas. Our family put some mileage on the Yukon and enjoyed spending time with both sides of the family. The Hello Kitty blanket and pillow were a hit. Corey’s parents must have dreams of managing their own band. They bought M a karaoke machine, K an electric guitar (an…

Wonderifious

Couldn’t ask for a better birthday-day. Spending the whole day with the goofy goos. We giggled and laughed in bed this morning, ate at my favorite cafe for breakfast and got our nails done just in time for Christmas. We’ve got the black sleigh loaded and gassed up. Just waiting for daddy to get home…

The joys of mommyhood

Took the day off to get organized for Christmas. Got all the gifts wrapped, got the Yukon cleaned out and presents organized. As I’m cleaning out the refrigerator, my sink starts filling up because I may have shoved a bit too much spaghetti down the darn garbage disposal. Frustrated, tired and hungry, I pull out…

Hello (and goodbye!) Kitty

I’ve been worrying about making my little niece’s Christmas present since November. I was going to make her some jammies, tried a couple patterns and wasn’t happy with any of them. She’s in love with Hello Kitty. Maybe love is the wrong word. I’d go with obsessed. Little K has some purple Hello Kitty jammies…

Amazin’

This is my absolute favorite song these days. It’s a beautiful song and something we all need to remind ourselves…we are amazing, just the way we are (sing to Bruno Mars). Speaking of something else amazing. I made some yummo cookies. I am not a baker so it takes a lot to get me cooking…
