Feb 27, 2017 I feel half guilty that I've sort of abandoned the cause of writing normal mom posts for this month and half justified in the fact that boring, all-over-the-place life is normal mom life. It isn't scheduled or cohesive. It's a mess that starts out looking at one thing and gets flopped around throughout … Continue reading The real pace of life
Feb 26, 2017 Welp, they accepted our offer! Guess we're buying a house. 🙂 Maybe more details to come once I actually know some. Haha. Can't begin to tell you how clueless I am about this whole process, but luckily Bryan's way less of an idiot about it, so I think we'll be good. Anyway, … Continue reading Looks like we’re buying a house!
Feb 25, 2017 In the interest of bringing you all along on this emotional rollercoaster with me (jk I'm really not freaking out, just hopeful), I thought I'd give you an intermediate update on the house we put an offer in on yesterday. Yesterday morning I did something I rarely do and actually checked the … Continue reading More about the house
Feb 24, 2017 Some really good thrift store shopping Updated the budget Sliced up 4 gallon size bags of bananas to freeze Put in an offer on a house Filed taxes Date night with Bryan
Feb 23, 2017 Welp, I finished that custom home portrait. And brainstormed a billion more things about the quiet pages. Which I really need a better name for because quiet book pages is misleading (since they don't actually get made into a book--they're just individual stand-alone pages which is great for a lot of reasons … Continue reading That thing
Feb 22, 2017 These are the things you think about when you're a mom. They teach you in school about cost per unit, but they don't teach you this. True, a 16oz plastic jar of bubbles with one bubble wand may be $.99 while the 6 pack of 4 oz bubble jars on the shelf … Continue reading “Bubble drama”
Feb 21, 2017 In an effort to not write from bed with my eyes half-closed, I thought I'd write first thing this morning. The upside is that I'm not falling asleep. The downside is that I have nothing specific of substance in mind to write about, so I'm just gonna ramble about whatever because that's … Continue reading A rocking chair and continued ambition
Feb 20, 2017 As I was writing up my list last night of things I wanted to get done today, I thought of several possibilities, but left almost all of them off. Since school was out for the day, I wanted to make sure to spend some good time with the kids doing fun things, … Continue reading Priorities
Feb 19, 2017 I guess the most normal mom thing I have to share today is how tired I am. Not complainy tired, just super regular boring tired. Had a good day with beautiful weather and a wonderful sabbath and sweet, funny kids, and a delicious (from the freezer) dinner and a lot of relaxing … Continue reading Just tired
Feb 18, 2017 The truth is, I wanted to post the news on instagram before I wrote about it here and I just didn't have a decent picture or the energy to do that yesterday. It was a busy day with the ultrasound and running some errands and then in the evening I had some … Continue reading …BOY!
