bullet journal update

June 18, 2014

I’ve been using my bullet journal for about three months now. If you haven’t heard of this method, you really should check out the website and the short video there. It’s a really neat method for organizing daily and monthly tasks, events, notes, lists, and pretty much anything else you can include in a notebook. For my journal I’m using a Moleskine Cahier Squared Journal because that’s what I had on hand. I think, though, that I might need more pages if I want it to last for an entire year. If I continue, next time I will also probably purchase a notebook with a hard cover. The squared pages are perfect though. One of the most important parts to…

liam at five months

June 17, 2014

He: >Has become pretty vocal! I guess he realized that he has to make himself heard around here. >Had a pretty bad diaper rash for about two weeks before I finally realized it was fungal and the new cream kicked in. Now it has improved a lot but is still stubbornly hanging on. (Side note: ask for recommendations for diaper rash on Facebook and you will get more comments than all of your other posts combined. It was awesome.) >Grabs himself (you know what I mean) constantly during diaper changes. At first I just thought he was itchy, but now I think it’s a boy thing. >Loves his feet. And I love the adorable little bundle he becomes when he’s holding…

around here // father’s day weekend

June 16, 2014

Around here messes were made. While I was in the shower Meredith decided to empty all of the drawers and shelves of their contents. Miraculously though, she helped clean up! I took my last splurge weekend seriously. We did a little crafting for daddy. “Take us a picture!” I was able to work on a few things around the house, including styling our dresser. More books were needed (an obvious solution, I thought) so I stacked a Stephen King illustrated companion (my husband’s favorite author) with some House Beautiful magazines and a pretty copy of The Hobbit. I never could get a clear photo of it since it’s right in front of a window. But I do hope to share…

preparing for whole30

June 13, 2014

Well, I’m doing it. I’ve been talking about it for weeks and finally I’m starting the Whole30 on Monday. This weekend is my last fling with pancakes, Starbucks’ iced mochas, chips & queso, and chocolate. I don’t mean forever – I fully intend to enjoy those delicious treats in an intentional way in the future – but I’m ready to break my body’s addiction to them. I admit that I am pretty nervous. Here are my concerns, roughly in order of biggest to smallest: Cooking new foods and with new techniques that I’m not used to, and the time in the kitchen it will require.  Not planning well and going hungry as a result. The initial cost of pantry staples,…

found

June 12, 2014

I always enjoy going “shopping” at my parents’ house, as I like to call it. My mom has saved a bunch of stuff from when we were kids, has accumulated more treasures along the way, and they’ve inherited some cool stuff from my grandparents. In most cases if I say that I want something, I’m free to go home with it. These are my latest finds. baby shirt / baby shoes in original box handmade child’s hat / romper jewelry box (I used to love it) / cabbage patch doll kids’ tee / cigarette box (it was my grandmother’s) not pictured: a beautiful basket and the perfect rolling wooden desk chair! 1 Like
