Yep. That’s me.

I’ve found that now that I leave to go to work at 3:30, I’m trying to spend more time with the kids during the day, clean during naptime (normal blogging time), and when I get home I close the computer and spend time with Doug. It’s been great! But over here, it shows.

I want to thank all of you for entering, commenting, viewing, and sticking around while I’m out playing hooky. Hellooo to my new readers, and a big hug to my old friends. :)


-What happened while I was playing hooky?


-I was beyond-words-excited to see that my String Wall Art in the Kids’ Room was featured on Be Different, Act Normal. Seeing my picture on her site gives me goosebumps!!!

-We reached 500 followers, yay!!!

-Ben started sitting. Then rolling. Then crawling. Now he can stand with a bit of help, leans in to give me kisses, and says “mama,” “dada,” and “b-b-b-b.” Lily loves the last one, the B is her favorite on the Letter Factory. :)

This lady won Crafting with the Stars! WOOO HOOO! Go Team Mandi!! I’ve been in awe of her mad skillz since I first stumbled upon her blog. We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!


-aaaaaand I finally picked a paint color for something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, involving almost every room of my house. I bought the primer, I bought the paint. You take a guess, and I’ll keep you posted… ;)

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Steady, controlled movements are the key to learning what it feels like to work a
    specific muscle or muscle group. This minor trick will be a lot more organic for your rotator cuffs and would put minor strain in your physical exercise.
    The compression forces on the legs and spine produced by what are classed as “normal” activities such as running
    and jumping are upto 5 times the bodyweight and it is
    unlikely that any liftable weight will be able to match this.

    The tail, also called “brush”, is bushy and is used to
    cover the body during cold weather. Modern insulin pumps are programmable in order to compensate your food excess by calculating how many more insulin units must pumped into your blood stream.
    This helps you avoid over eating and eating junk

    As long as you keep trying to get him back, your ex is in control.
    Some women inadvertently “train” a man to NOT call by becoming angry, emotional or cold when he does
    call. If you show your desperation within, your ex is goin to avoid you as he realise you have behind the things that you do to make him want you back.
