Giving Thanks

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

What are you giving thanks for today? As I prepare for Thanksgiving, I think of all the things I’m thankful for. Yes, we’re thankful every day but it’s nice to have a day to focus on thankfulness. I’m thankful for health, for my family, for our new little baby, for provision, for friends, for our […]

4 Months

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Sigh…’s going so fast!!!!! I can’t believe he’s 4 months old already. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of little guy he’s going to be. I’m looking forward to the funny things he’s going to say. But I sure wish this tiny baby stage wasn’t moving so quickly. He’s rolling over both ways […]

Cloth Diaper Wipes

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

When James was a baby, I made the baby wipes with paper towels. I was pretty sure I’d make those again, unless I found a huge deal on wipes. While I was pregnant, I did buy a couple cases of wipes online when they were super cheap. But I also got some cloth wipes. Since […]

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

I saved foaming soap containers when the soap was gone and added our own soap and water to make a new foaming soap. This isn’t a new tip–I’m sure lots of you do this. Here’s my tip though–buy the bag refill of Method liquid soap at Target. It’s supposed to refill a soap container approximately […]

Being Convicted

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

Over the past few weeks, I’ve so enjoyed baby things. There are so many sweet baby things out there. There are so many useful baby things out there. There are just so many things! Since I waited so long for this baby and since we went for so long with so little money, I’ve been […]

Tomato Progress

Friday, November 8th, 2013

  My tomatoes are finally ripening. I used 3 of them in the pizza I posted about the other day. The only problem is that they’re all turning red at the same time! They are a little more “mealy” than fresh tomatoes are but they’re still good. Finally eating the tomatoes from my garden in […]

Blue Cheese Pizza~Low Carb Cauliflower Crust~THM S

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

A restaurant near here makes a similar type pizza. I tried it once and LOVED it. However, they don’t have a low carb crust and they’re really expensive. So, once in awhile, I make it for myself. Thankfully, Lee and James think it’s disgusting so I don’t even have to share! 1. Make a cauliflower […]
