101 before 30- an update

Just over a year ago I put together a list of 101 thing I wanted to accomplish before my 30th birthday. We are now just under a year and a half from that monumental birthday, haha. I figured it was time to update and see how far I've come. I've pasted the original list below... Continue Reading →

The Perfect Play Dough

My three year old recently discovered the joys of play dough. He's played with it before but only recently really took a liking to it. When I friend came to visit she made a batch and he's been asking to play with it just about everyday since. Now, that first batch didn't last long. In... Continue Reading →

My mom hand crossed-stitched each stocking with a beautiful image and our names. Mine has a vintage looking Santa. My sister has a... Continue Reading →

101 Before 30

At a recent therapy appointment (yes, I see a therapist, yes, you should too!) my therapist suggested a life list idea for me. This this would be something to keep me motivated and excited about life. She suggested a 101 in 1001 list. This would be a 101 things to do in the next 1001... Continue Reading →

A little crafty time

On Halloween day there was no school (woohoo!!) so a good friend and her son came to visit the farm. Our boys due dates were exactly a week apart. While neither arrived when they were scheduled to, they are now good buddies. Two two-year-olds...oy! But we had a great time catching up, eating yummy desserts... Continue Reading →
