Day in the Life {November 15}

When I set the 15th to be my monthly Day in the Life, my own birthday was the farthest thing from my mind, so I didn't think about blogging my birthday every year! Before I start with Sunday, the 15th, I must tell you that I am brilliant and didn't know it. I scheduled Bunco at my house with some friends for Saturday, November 14. Friday and Saturday we spent quite a lot of … [Read more...]

A letter to the mama who is freaking out that she isn’t doing enough.

Have you heard the exciting news? My friend Crystal, the Money Saving Mom, just released a new book, Money Making Mom. Crystal is a long-time (in internet years) friend.

You can catch up on this year's Day in the Life posts here. (The ones that are done, anyway. ;)  ) 4:54 ~ I woke to a click and a super bright hallway light. What in the world?! Reluctantly crawling out of bed to assess the damage … [Read more...]

Someone’s Missing

A couple weeks ago on a Thursday night at 10pm (because that's when all the good ideas surface, right?!), I decided it was time to make a family portrait appointment. It had been 2 years. I messaged a local photographer, and she replied right away that she could do it Sunday. Awesome! Three days of digging through closets, shopping, coordinating outfits, curling hair, and … [Read more...]
