day in the life // march 2013

April 4, 2013

I have decided to participate along with Ali Edwards’ monthly day in the life project. I wasn’t prepared to start at the beginning of the year but I think I can pull it off once a month from here on out. It happens during the last week of the month, usually the last day, but since in March that day was Easter Sunday I chose to document Friday the 29th, which I had off work. So this is a fairly typical weekend-ish day for me. I’ll be including these photos as an insert in my Project Life as well as the form I used to journal on. 4:30am – My alarm went off as usual for a weekday, but since…

around here // blah

March 25, 2013

I am recovering from the major blahs. Last week started off with pinkeye followed up with a sore throat, neither of which got me out of work. I have also been plagued by recurrent, almost constant sores on my tongue and inside of my mouth for the past six months and last week they were really bothering me and were enough to make me cry. No idea why I am so susceptible to them but I hate it. Plus I’ve been having these random dizzy spells, possibly related to that time of the month although they are a recent development. So for most of last week I had little to no energy above and beyond what I needed to get through the…

around here // weekend

March 11, 2013

Really good weekend. I got the quilt fabric all prepared – trimmed, washed, dried, and ironed. Ready to cut! Spent several hours with my good friend Lauren on Saturday shopping. We walked around Highland Village and spent a gift card that Lauren gave Meredith and came home with an awesome new chair for her that we never would have sprung for otherwise. Meredith is obsessed with it and was super happy all day. Lately I started letting Meredith sit on my lap for dinner when she’s fussy just to make it through the evening, and unfortunately she now refuses to sit in her high chair. I should have seen that one coming. In truth I don’t mind too much but…

day in the life // girls’ day off

November 16, 2012

This year I decided that it’s good for my health and sanity to take a random day off work every month or so. Sometimes I need those days to be “me” days where I still put Meredith in daycare and have some time to myself. But other times I want some extra time with her, and that’s what I did yesterday. 7:00 a.m. / we’re up and David’s up and we see him off to work shortly. 8:00 a.m. / Meredith still has a cough and congestion so before we do anything else we take a steamy shower/bath. Her favorite thing is to fill a cup up with running water and dump it out over and over. 8:30 a.m. /…

around here // this week

November 2, 2012

>I put out our one and only fall decoration, this little pumpkin that Meredith “painted.” I’m not saying that I’m not into holiday decorations, because I am. It’s just that we don’t have many. They’re the kind of thing that you have to acquire over time. Maybe this is the year that I’ll shop the sales after Thanksgiving. >Switched my purse out for this messenger bag my husband got me one year. Even though it’s still in the 80’s every day here, this feels a little more like fall. >Enjoying the heck out of this quirky little novel, Shine Shine Shine by Lydia Netzer. And oh! I cooked dinner one night this week, and we all three sat down to eat as a…
