Here’s the deal…

I’ve decided I’m not a very good blogger.  While I do have many things to share with you (homemaking tips, sewing inspiration, favorite things, God’s Word, etc.), blogging just isn’t at the top of my priority list right now.  I’m definitely not planning to close up shop, I just won’t be around consistently – at [...]

Ice, Ice baby

I had a post almost finished and ready to publish for today when the power went out at 10pm last night…

Icicles hanging from roof of back deck

We were in the midst of a crazy ice storm and the icy stuff JUST.KEPT.FALLING. The power started flickering in the evening so we began discussing what our [...]

Getting back into the groove

Hi there! If you’re reading this, thanks for sticking around during my extended absence. I’m finally feeling prepared and less overwhelmed with life since our move and ready to get back into blogging.  I have some great posts lined up for the next few weeks.

If you saw a post in your reader today that seemed [...]

Consignment sales

Good morning again! (If you’re looking for the weekly menu plan, it’s below this post).  I’m guest posting over at Springs Bargains today with a post about my experience consigning with Just Between Friends.

If you’re looking to sell baby clothes and gear, kids clothes or maternity items, you’ll want to read this post.

Sugar container


Have you ever seen one of these?

It’s a sugar container and it’s awesome!  It’s probably my favorite kitchen storage container.  It makes measuring sugar so quick and simple.

It holds 5-6lbs of sugar and has a large flip top for scooping out sugar and also a small pour spout.  Both can be opened independently of each [...]

Taking a break

I’m taking a little break from blogging and most internet related activity for a few weeks. The kids and I are in Florida visiting my family and Michael will be home in just over a month. I will post sporadic posts until then and plan to be back to full blogging the first [...]

Mother's Helper

Bookmark and Share

I’m wondering if you, my wonderful readers, might help me out?

I am in need of a mother’s helper for a few days in May. If you are local to Colorado Springs and know of a young lady (as young as 12) who is available during the day (homeschooled, etc.) on weekdays and possibly weekends, [...]

Friday Fail - The PHONE

friday fail

Sometimes I wonder what people think of me since I seem to have this super-klutz problem …

Last Friday was a pretty busy day for us.  We had an appointment 40 miles away in the morning (2+ hours round trip) and then an event on base for dinner.  This is not typical of our days, it’s [...]

Organizing grocery trips

When I started couponing a couple years ago, I realized that my grocery shopping strategy needed to change a little.  Before, I would just take my list into whatever store I was planning on visiting purchase those items (along with whatever else that caught my eye…).  There was no real grocery budget and only a [...]
