Wow! What a rough couple of weeks for my family. We didn't get much of a chance to celebrate Bouncer's 7th birthday because Paul had kidney stones. Emergency room - seriously thought he was dieing, I have never been so scared, CAT scans, lots of pain killers, visits to the... Continue reading

Awhile ago, like 2010, awhile ago, A Beautiful Mess, posted about making 4 simple goals before 2011. I really loved the idea and I did it too. I kept it up for quite awhile but did it as a monthly thing and made 4 simple goals for me or my... Continue reading

I love gardening. I really love gardening. And with my current apartment situation gardening outside is not an option, even a container garden. I thought I would have to wait and then I thought maybe, just maybe, a small herb garden on my window sill would be a way to... Continue reading

I really enjoy taking out my art journals at night and doodle, draw, paint, glue, whatever. It's so great for winding down or working out frustrations of the day in a healthy way. If you have always wanted to try out art this is a very safe, inexpensive way to... Continue reading

Happy Belated Mother's Day! I didn't want to share here, what we did for Mother's Day till after the big day. Didn't want to ruin the surprises for the Grandma's. Budget is a big concern for us right now. The move to Tennessee took more out of us than we... Continue reading

The Nashville Zoo has quickly become one of our favorite spots to visit either for a quick trip for just an hour or two or an all day animal extravaganza. No matter how long we go we have to see the aligators for Nor. They have an amazing playground, with... Continue reading

This is the first Phoenix album I have ever owned and I must admit what drew me to it was it's gray cover with orange and pink on it. My favorite! Phoenix Bankrupt! Also, *cough* it was only $9.99 at Target. I was in the mood to try something new... Continue reading

I needed some extra storage but my budget for said storage was exactly $0. Looking around I had a lot of empty boxes from the move Ugly, yes, but available and the price was right. I really would like some beautiful, vintage, wooden crates. After a quick trip to a... Continue reading

It all started with this tweet... Our days of living a lie are over! We have tasted macaroons and they are... kind of strange but good. Sadly, we did not make them. So maybe our days of craft fraud double life are not over completely. But, I would like to... Continue reading

The kids and I did a fun craft together to decorate the house with some Valentine's hearts. I have 3 kids: MissE (girl,11), Bouncer (boy, 6), and Nor (boy,2). We have a large age range with our kids and it can be difficult to do a craft that will interest... Continue reading

I have always considered myself a "doodler". Meaning, I don't really draw, I don't really paint, I am not pursing being an artist. I'm just a happy little doodler. I'm not ready to shed the title doodler and I'm not making a big statement about being an Artist now, but... Continue reading

I'm sure you've seen it all over Pinterest and was also featured on A Beautiful Mess, Sharpie Mugs! I went to a Girls Night Out craft night and we made Sharpie Mugs. It was really fun seeing what everyone did and how creative everyone was drawing on their mugs. The... Continue reading

I can't believe that it is already December. I'm sorry, I know everyone is saying that and we say it every year, but it is TRUE! As always I had lots of grand plans to get so much done in advance but it just didn't happen. I'm having to let... Continue reading

A monthly update about what's not happening in our lives... Stacia Not Listening/Watching: country music (Thank the Lord!). I had my fill this weekend hanging out with my roommate and her friends. I may live in Nashville (Music City), but I do not have a taste for country music. YeeNever!... Continue reading

It's super important to me (Jess). I started caring about politics my sophomore year of high school and worked on the Clinton/Gore campaign, making phone calls, handing out buttons, etc. It was before I could even vote. Some of my politics have changed over the years but I still think... Continue reading
