2015 in review

December 31, 2015

Hello and welcome to my second annual year-in-review survey! This year I dropped a couple of questions and changed one to make it more applicable to me. I really enjoy this look back over the year, even if it wasn’t what I had hoped, because it puts things in perspective, makes me grateful for what I do have, and gives me inspiration to start new. 1. What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before? Ran a half marathon. Went to a blog conference. Learned to knit. Owned cats. Tried Snapchat. Had ringworm. Joined a direct-sell business. Made a softie. Recorded a podcast. 2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next…

ten things on a friday

December 11, 2015

one. I’ve had a cold for the past week. It’s been terrible! I wish I could just hide under some pillows like Liam is here. I rarely get sick so when it hits me I’m unprepared. I actually did take one day off work (which was lovely) but the rest of the week I’ve just been powering through. two. I’m in major binge-mode with The Good Wife. I go home after work and watch an episode before picking up the kids because I can’t go a day without it. I’m only at the end of season one so I’m happy that I have plenty of material ahead of me. three. On my sick day I made boots and sewed two dresses…

November 25, 2015

excited to read the above three books and love on my home in the coming year. finishing up some really great books recently. celebrating a full night’s sleep for the first time in ages, and an hour-plus of alone time this morning before the kids woke up! seriously considering heading to Nordstrom on Black Friday to look for jeans and boots. I simply can’t buy them without trying them on, and I’m thinking if I don’t take the kids and just plan to be there awhile, it might be worth it. refraining from putting up many Christmas decorations because I’m worried about what the cats (who are really still kittens) will do to them. looking forward to starting a couple new…

what i’m for

November 18, 2015

Today I’m linking up with my friend Brittany to share some of the things I’m for. This is an attempt at positivity, even though I for sure don’t always feel it! But today I’ve had a decent night’s sleep and a scream-free morning, so I’m feeling pretty good. :) Coffee. Listen, coffee makes me a better person. I really don’t mind that my body is completely dependent on it at this point. Doing what works for you. This is my parenting philosophy. Although I have my ideals, life gets in the way and I’m all about surviving however necessary. Lullabies. Bedtime is hard for us right now, but a sweet song makes it easier. Sometimes a well-chosen lullaby can even calm a horrific tantrum. Here…
