FLYing

Several years ago, I stumbled upon FlyLady.net.  The concept of Marla’s cleaning and organizing tasks was wonderful, and something I wanted to attain.  But I wasn’t in the right place in life to really stick with it so I didn’t.  For the last several months, I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed by the amount of stuff […]

Making Waves

Making Waves

Sixteen years ago, I gave my life to the Lord.  My testimony doesn’t include any scary stories of addiction or abuse.  I didn’t get saved during a near-death experience.  I was just a normal 13-year old girl who decided that it made sense.  Jesus died for me, had this AWESOME gift to share, and all […]

Catching Up

Catching Up

It appears that I’ve been neglecting my blog for quite some time.  The last draft in the cache is from just after Halloween… and truthfully, I’m even more behind than that! In September, Ryder turned one.  A business trip opportunity arose for Ryan, and it turned into an early birthday celebration for Ryder as well. […]

Hamper Re-do

Hamper Re-do

I LOVE Ryder’s crib bedding.  Ryan picked it out before we knew if we were having a boy or girl, so it’s gender neutral, and even educational.  🙂  You know how it goes… once you pick out the bedding, you can’t live without the multitude of accessories that accompany it: the lamp, the valance, the […]

Holy Haircut, Batman!

Holy Haircut, Batman!

Ok… so ya know that fabulous haircut I raved about yesterday?  Um… yeah… not so much. As the day turned into evening, and I lived in my new hair, I started to noticed little things here and there.  I’m typically very picky, and quite a perfectionist about certain things… and hair is one of them […]

Feeling Refreshed

Feeling Refreshed

There’s nothing like the feeling of walking out of the salon feeling 10lbs. lighter and full of sass!  I’ve been itching for a haircut for several weeks now, and just haven’t found the time to go out and do it… until this morning.  Ryan worked from home this morning since he’ll be gone all day […]

The Old is New Again

The Old is New Again

There are those people who don’t buy anything unless it’s never been touched by another human’s hand.  There are those who never buy anything unless it’s been used so much, it’s hardly recognizable.  And of course, there are those who never buy anything at all.  🙂  I fall somewhere in the middle of that spectrum, […]

Adventures in Babysitting

Ryan and I are both members of our church’s worship team.  Typically, we ask that they don’t schedule us to play on the same weekend so that one of us can be available to take care of Ryder.  This week, despite their best efforts, it couldn’t be avoided (six drummers declined, so they were desperate).  […]
