this past weekend (or maybe it was two weekends ago!) jay jumped into the beginnings of one of our major renovations: adding a bathroom upstairs. it'd probably be nice if i finished our new home tour so you'd have some context for what i'm talking about, but...i've been a bit... Continue reading

(and people think lula is serious!) ...and the results are... they worked! the eye specialist was a bit skeptical about replacing the lenses in the pink vintage eyeglasses. so we ordered a new pair along with the vintage ones just in case. here are lula's new glasses that she wears...

i must once again apologize for my unprofessional pictures. there are so many huge windows in our new house, and i didn't really get to select the time of day that i took these photos. so they're not that great, but at least you can get an idea of what... Continue reading

a few weeks ago, we had a "cold front" come through. it was in the low 70s during the day and wonderfully cool at night and early morning. it was heavenly. i wore long sleeves for a week in the middle of summer. one morning we were headed out to... Continue reading

My computer is in the shop for a while, and we're staying with my mother-in-law while our wood floors are being refinished in our new house...which will hopefully cover up the awful urine smell the last residents left behind! So...I'll be back someday! But not today! Continue reading

after finding an article my friend had written over a year ago for my blog about 1-2-3 magic, i was contacted by the 1-2-3 magic group and asked if i'd like to review some of their materials. i agreed and said, "why don't we start with the original book?!" even... Continue reading

our old house didn't have a shower when we first moved in. just a tub with fakish tile halfway up the wall. oddly, our new house doesn't have a shower either...but that's a story for a different day. we lived with a nasty shower curtain shoddily hung on the inside... Continue reading

lula loves for me to fix her hair in funky ways. the more i do to it the better. of course i rarely take the time to do elaborate styles, and she has a hard time sitting still while i'm working. so usually her hair is down or in simple... Continue reading

who plans outdoor festivals in mid-july?! craziness! i guess when it's for a specific cause...such as viewing butterflies...festival planners don't have much of a choice. so because my little four year old loves butterflies, we headed out to a local butterfly festival early saturday morning despite the heat. luckily we...

Brilliant! I saw this last year on another blog and loved it too. Might have to invest in one since my little ones live for the water! Plus I love all of your ideas of how else to use it. And the fact that there's a drain on the bottom? That's all I needed to know to be sold! That pic of S with the goggles made me laugh out loud! Hilarious!

isn't it fun to see your child's personality and interests start to emerge little by little? it became clear just recently that lula would do really well in gymnastics. she is constantly tumbling and jumping and flipping on anything and everything. so we just put her in classes and she...
