Weekend Rewind

This weekend was the first in a month that we had to lose Avery.  I really do not like giving him up for visitation, but unfortunately it is the law.  Our “off” weekends for Avery are usually more subdued than the ones that we have him for, and this one was no exception.  I didn’t … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

What a freakin’ weekend!  Y’all, we had the best weekend we’ve had in a really long time.  As much as we love spending weekends at the ballpark, it was nice to do something different for once.  Friday, we drove down to the Savannah suburbs to stay the night with my childhood best friend.  Catching up … Continue reading

As Seen on Pinterest

Since the last As Seen on Pinterest (a diy headband braided from your own hair) turned out to be something I do all the time now, I thought doing another project may turn out to be a useful craft, too.  So here’s the next crafty thing: a ribbon scarf made from old t-shirts. I’ve been … Continue reading

As with most weekends, we spent the majority of it at the ballpark.  On Saturday, Big Daddy had six games of 9/10 baseball at Heritage Park, which we really enjoy.  It’s a very large, very nice park with an actual steam engine that you can get in (although we have to avoid that area on … Continue reading

As Seen on Pinterest

I’m not going to try and make “As Seen on Pinterest” a weekly column or anything, because I definitely do not have time for all that kind of crafty stuff (although I’d love to do it).  But every once in awhile, both my kids manage to take naps at the same time, and I try to … Continue reading

I picked up a new free Kindle book the other day called A Cup of Comfort Women of the Bible Devotional: Daily Reflections Inspired by Scripture’s Most Beloved Heroines.  The verse I picked to share this week is from May 15’s devotional. Now I appeal to Euodia and Syntyche.  Please, because you belong to the Lord, … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind, Baseball Edition

How is it that, in our house at least, we are always more exhausted when the weekend is over than we were when it started?! Friday afternoon, my awesome friend Sam said that they had some extra tickets for the Braves game that night, and asked if we wanted to come with them.  Um, yes?! … Continue reading

April Wrap-Up

April Wrap-Up

Things I Did Well in April Laundry!  I was a laundry QUEEN this month.  I do at least two loads a day, plus every other day I wash the diapers.  If Avery’s diaper leaks overnight (he’s only daytime potty trained) then that’s two more loads. Decluttering.  I have two small children and a husband who’s … Continue reading

The verse that I’ve been hung up on this week, that keeps popping into my head as I move throughout my day, is Ecclesiastes 9:10.  I typically read The Message, but since this is a single verse and The Message doesn’t have verse numbers, I’m sharing with you the New International Version: “Whatever your hand … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

We had a SUPER busy weekend that I’m still recovering from, trying to catch up on the laundry and clutter and such.  (How does a house get messy twice as much when you aren’t even home?!  My guess is the “come in, dump your stuff, grab more stuff, leave, repeat.”) Since we did so much, I’ll … Continue reading
