This easy hot spinach dip has taken our family and church by storm. My aunt discovered it on the back of a Duke’s mayonnaise jar and has made it for us three times in the last month for potlucks, birthdays, etc. We can’t get enough of it and it’s too good not to share. You may […]

“I just don’t have time”

This phrase has crept its way into my speech and thoughts more and more over the last five months. My favorite variant is the sarcastic “Oh I should do that in my spare time.” I’m trying to eradicate this attitude. It reeks of martyrdom and the truth is we all pretty much have the time […]

Crochet Longies

After my success with crocheting a diaper soaker, I wanted to attempt a pair of longies for Sweet T to run around the house in this winter. Ok, so she’s not exactly running around at 5 months old (more like sitting around and whining for me to take her to “see what she can see” […]

Thanks to grandma, I got to diversify Sweet T’s diaper stash! At 14 pounds, she is in that awkward stage between sizes (yellow edge is a little snug while red is slightly big), but we went ahead and made the switch to red edge for comfort’s sake. I was all set to order more Cloth-eez […]

One night this week after Sweet T was already in bed and Hubs and I were watching Hulu a commercial for Sprite aired. Oh the power of suggestion. Hubs began craving one immediately. Since we are 15 minutes from the nearest anything we don’t ever just run out to the store for a drink, ice […]

I’m a Perfectionist (but I suck at it)

A T-shirt with that emblazoned on the front is what I’m asking for next Christmas. Making peace with imperfection is a tall order for the perfectionist at heart, but it’s an essential tool in order to enjoy a simple, contented life. As human beings it’s impossible to achieve perfection so why do we spend massive […]

Quelf!

My friend Lexi jokes that she should be the spokesperson for Quelf. She certainly gives the game enough word-of-mouth advertising which is how I came to buy it for our family this holiday season. Our Quelf conversations usually went like this Me: “How do you play?” Lexi: “There aren’t many rules. You just have to […]

Wubbanub vs. Paci Plushies

This post may contain affiliate links.

Last month, Sweet T introduced you to her Wubbanub monkey, Mo. Mo is a major player in our naptime routine, but we are a little concerned that Sweet T will outgrow the Soothie that is attached to him long before she outgrows her need for a pacifier and plushie to love. In search of a […]
