Making the Effort… and a Discount Code!
A few years ago, I started noticing that my friends had cute style, and I had none. Â I’ve always been a jeans & t-shirt kinda gal, and I’m totally ok with that. Â But now that I’m a mom, I don’t wanna be “that mom.” Â You know the one… wearing the same pair of yoga pants […]
Photo Mat Refashion
I have an uncle who really enjoys finding fun, meaningful things to frame and give as gifts. Â He even cuts his own mats, and ends up with a great piece of custom art. Â When Ryder was born, he gave us a small frame with a picture of Batman and a little inscription that read “B […]
Five-minute Jewelry Refashion
I bought this necklace on clearance at Target about a year ago… and haven’t worn it since. I love the soft color and delicate details of the chains. Â However, on my body, it’s a really unflattering length, and it never laid out quite right as soon as I moved. Â I removed the shorter chain, […]
Stuff I’ve Made… Thanks Pinterest!
Oh Pinterest, how you inspire and frustrate me in the same moment! Â Luckily, lately I’ve felt more inspired than frustrated, and here is some of the evidence: Amidst a major decor re-do in our master, our closet got a facelift. Â Inspired by thisÂ pin, I found my pegboard for less than $6 at Lowe’s (but I […]
Boy, Oh Boy!… a Random Brain Dump
Growing up, I learned to golf and fish and camp from a really early age… and I loved every second of it! Â I can vividly remember beingÂ super frustrated when my daddy wouldn’t let me bait my own hook with a nightcrawler. Â But I was also a dancer, and loved Barbies and coloring and dressing up. […]
I don’t know what it is, but I’ve sat down several times this week to write, and I end up trashing it all. Â God’s kinda messing with me this week (in the good but painful way), and I guess I’m just having trouble digesting it all for now. Â So instead of trying to write something […]
This is NOT My Home
I’m sitting outside, watching my oldest son and his buddies play Cops & Robbers as they ride their scooters back and forth through the yard. I have worship songs from this morning’s church service still playing in my head, and although it’s pretty cold today, the sunshine is beautiful and warm. But my heart is […]
Do What You Can
My MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) group only meets twice a month. On one of our “off” weeks, we have an optional Bible study we can attend. Last semester, we did a book about some women from the New Testament… this semester, it’s women from the Old Testament. We’ve looked at Mary (mother of Jesus) and […]
Warms My Heart Wednesday: Remember when?
This afternoon, I heard the boys’ door open, and a tiny blond head poked his sleepy face through a crack in the door. Â As he emerged, I could hear him asking for something. Â I assumed he was soliciting his post-nap snack, but instead he was asking for Gigi and Papa (my parents). Â I explained that […]
Grati-Tuesday: Back to School & The Bachelor
In an effort to focus on the good things in life (at least once a week… HA!), I’m dedicating one blog post a week to gratitude. Â Thus, “Grati-Tuesday” was born. Today, I’m so grateful for Ryder’s school. Â He is such a social boy, and has been pretty lonely without seeing his school buddies. Â He only […]
