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…

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…

what i learned in october

November 3, 2015

I started strong with writing down what I learned in October, but it got kind of stressful toward the end and I didn’t end up remembering to keep up with it! So here are the few random things I learned over the past month. Pop culture trivia Am I the last one to know this? Kirk Cameron and Candace Cameron Bure are siblings. I learned this from the Popcast. Fairy tales Also from the Popcast, I learned some of the details about the dark origins of fairy tales. Suuuper creepy stuff. Random medical stuff This is probably going to be a recurring category in my life because of my job. From working in the pre-op department this month, I learned…

what i learned in september

September 30, 2015

Today I’m linking up with Emily Freeman to share the random things I learned over the past month. It’s been fun to write down these tidbits and I think I’ll keep it up! Car inspection info I had to get my car inspected this month, but it needed some work done first. So I learned that they won’t pass you if the “check engine” light is on, and you can’t have a spare tire on. I also always forget that you have to show proof of insurance to pass inspection, and I didn’t have a hard copy. But I learned that they will accept a digital copy if you just look it up on your phone and show them. So…

life with kids & kittens

June 15, 2015

Well, we are about two months into life with the kittens and I’m here with a progress report! I had never owned a cat before, so I have learned a LOT. First of all: we love them. Well, David is indifferent, but I myself really enjoy their happy furry presence, especially on the rare occasions when I’m home alone. They are often the first thing Meredith talks about when she wakes up or comes home. They are an endless source of delight for Liam. Kittens & Kids One reason we opted for kittens was because they wouldn’t be afraid of kids and they’d get used to life with them. Well, they are getting exposure for sure! I have been able to teach…
