project life 2014 : weeks 33 – 34

September 3, 2014

Here’s my latest Project Life spread, which I just barely pulled off in time for my self-set deadline of posting every other Wednesday. I usually work on this on Saturday mornings, but over the weekend I turned our house upside down painting and rearranging rooms and all my craft stuff was displaced. So I did this yesterday afternoon instead, since I got to come home early from work. This is from August 11 – 24. They were pretty normal weeks. Meredith completed swim lessons, Liam turned 7 months old, it was really hot outside, I was working and running and quilting. The usual. Gosh I just love the way Meredith loves Liam, and how he has special smiles and laughs…

life interrupted

September 1, 2014

Over the weekend we decided to tackle the project of switching the nursery, which the kids had been sharing but is very small with only room for a crib, with the craft room, which is the largest bedroom other than the master. I don’t need all that space for crafts, but the kids could use a bigger playroom and this way Meredith can have a “big girl bed” that hopefully she’ll be sleeping in soon (fingers crossed). I have known that something like this was going to have to happen at some point. Whenever I got frustrated with the family bed situation I would think about all that needed to happen to get the kids into their own beds and…

Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy! >I teared up at this post about maternity leave, and how becoming a mother fundamentally changes you. >Toddler quotes are the best. >Amazing Texas quilt top by one of the members of my quilt guild. (Do you like how I called it “my” quilt guild even though I’ve only been to one meeting and I haven’t even technically finished one quilt yet?) >I found this marriage advice to be spot on. >I’m trying out NatureBox (a healthy snack subscription service), do you use it? >Do you sleep in pajamas, something cute, or an old t-shirt like me? I’ve been frustrated with my sleepwear lately and want to get something…

Genius: This was a really weird week because our census was super low at work so I got to take Monday and Tuesday off. I knew I was getting Monday off, but I didn’t know about Tuesday. Three day weekends make a huge difference in my attitude because I felt like I had SO MUCH TIME. I took things slow and easy on Saturday and Sunday because I knew I had an extra day to get things done. And the funny thing is that I was still pretty much done with everything before Monday came around! (Mental note: calm down.) So I decided to keep the kids home with me on Monday and it was awesome and special and fun. But…

book review + giveaway : dark hope by monica mcgurk

August 28, 2014

Yes this is a sponsored post and I was given the book as well as compensated for my review, but I promise I was only asked for my honest opinion! And I would never do otherwise. So feel free to skip this or check it out! You may like it. *** I agreed to review Dark Hope by Monica McGurk for three reasons: 1) I spent most of the summer reading Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry which is an epic western. It was awesome, but with something like that I always want to follow it with a completely different reading experience. 2) I am no stranger to some YA fantasy. In fact it’s probably one of my most beloved genres. 3) It was…
