Ten Websites I Love [That Aren’t About Books]

Ten Websites I Love [That Aren’t About Books]

  My feed reader is bursting full of awesome book blogs–one day I assume that my baby will nap and I’ll actually get to read some of them again. Snort. Though most of the blogs I read are bookish in nature, I also have folders for cooking, quilting, and the miscellaneous. When I saw that The Broke and the Bookish was asking for Top Ten Nonbookish Websites for today’s meme, I started compiling a list […]

Four Month Update – 4.27.2016

Four Month Update – 4.27.2016

Month four! I can’t believe it. The past four months feel like such a blur–life sure does move quickly with three little ones. Most days I fall into bed in a fit of exhaustion and am not nearly ready enough to get up the next morning when the time comes. But we’re having fun (most of the time) and now that Cara is more than a bump on the log, the girls are enjoying her […]

Following the Recipe

Following the Recipe

It’s not infrequent for something to go wrong with my cooking a recipe and my husband patiently asking “did you follow the recipe?” To which I normally give him the look and refuse to answer. I do the majority of the cooking at home because I enjoy it and I like having control over what we eat. But it bothers me to no end that when my husband does make something, he usually has better results than I would. […]

Creating My Happy List

Creating My Happy List

Two months ago I read a post by Modern Mrs. Darcy about the things that are currently saving her life. At that point I was deep in the newborn trenches, barely getting two hours of sleep in a row, and having a hard time focusing on anything saving my life. But the idea stuck with me. Two months later there are many sunny days, but the days are long. Sometimes the evenings are even longer. It’s […]

A Day in the Life – 2016 Event Link-Up

A Day in the Life – 2016 Event Link-Up

  I love this day so much. Well, I’m assuming I will as I loved it last year so much. Over the past couple of years, I’ve shared a few days of mine at random and commenters always say they’d like to record a day. Thus the Day in the Life blogger event was born. I meant to do a fall session last year, but time got away from me, so here we are a year […]

A Day in the Life with a Two Month Old

A Day in the Life with a Two  Month Old

Ignore the title–you all know that I also have an almost 5 year old and 2.5 year old in addition to the 2.5 month old. Just needed a way to distinguish this post from some of my other Days in the Life posts…including one I have planned for next week with all three girlies at home. I recorded below from Thursday March 10th. I recorded the below in part in preparation for the Day in […]

For the Love of E-Reading

For the Love of E-Reading

If you had asked me a few years ago, I would have said that I like my e-reader but it’s not my preferred method for reading. Oh goodness has that changed. With each book that I read, my love for e-reading becomes more and more concrete. Though, I do think a lot of my love speaks to where I am at in life. If I’m alone, I still enjoy picking up a paper book–and goodness […]

Graphic Novel Reviewlettes 2

  By the way, have I mentioned how glad I am that it’s March? I’m not thrilled that we didn’t have a single hard freeze this year (zomg the bugs we’ll have this summer!), but the trees are in bloom and budding and the weather is getting warmer and we’ve even had our first round of spring storms. Bring on spring!! Below you’ll find snippets for the second half of my Comics in February month. […]
