The easy chalkboard wall

The easy chalkboard wall

Even though we moved in two months ago, we are still getting settled.  We are still baseboard and door casings free.  With the rains Texas had this past week, we realized we needed to install some french drains to help with the drainage issues that we are having on...
The Hippie Dippie Candle

The Hippie Dippie Candle

So we have, as a family, been making more and more changes over the past few years to live and eat a little more organically and naturally..or basically less artificially.  This has trickled down from our food into our cleaning products, laundry detergent and even...
Dance Party

Dance Party

Brooklyn never passes up an opportunity to dance.  And it is always a theatrical production.  We now have the iHome low enough and accessible to the kids, which means Logan is always near it turning it on and off.  More like always on, and always very, very loud....
Return to the Big Box Store

Return to the Big Box Store

Yes, yes I know…the anxiety.  But guess what?  We needed bookcases and a TV stand for the family room.  So off to Ikea we went.  We got there right at 10:00 AM when they opened to avoid the crazy crowds, but by the time we left at noon, that store was packed....

Blood, Sweat and Tears

Blood, Sweat and Tears

We finally moved into our new house this weekend.  Yay!  That’s where the sweat came in.  I made several trips in my car, back and forth, between the two houses getting all our stuff moved over.  It’s amazing how much food our pantry and refrigerator held....
Who doesn’t need an egg cooker??

Who doesn’t need an egg cooker??

I have given out this egg cooker as a gift 15 times now, according to my Amazon order history.  When I tell people about this egg cooker, I see the “eye rolling”.  I see the thoughts of, “Is she that lazy?” flit through their heads.  And...
Big Box Anxiety

Big Box Anxiety

I have Big Box anxiety.  What is that you ask?  It means that anytime I have to go to Costco or Ikea ( may not technically be a big box store ), I get anxiety.  It’s all the people.  It’s the lines.  It’s the chaos.  I don’t do well with all...
