We’re preparing to take a long road trip this week! We’re excited about lots of days together. I’m hoping the baby does well. I’m hoping it’s not too hot! I’m hoping my back behaves itself! I’m hoping for lots of fun family time!   I may post a thing or two once in awhile but […]

Swim Diapers~Money Saving Tip!

Monday, August 25th, 2014

You may already know that you can wash and reuse disposable swim diapers. In case you didn’t know this, check out this article.

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

I was reading blogs in my feed the other day and stopped cold when the 1st words on one were, “Prison,” she said after sharing with me how desperately tired she was, “is starting to sound really good.” I have no clue how I found this blog or why I decided to follow it and I can’t remember […]

My Garden Is A Pinterest Fail

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

We’ve had a garden most of the years we’ve been married. Sometimes it was a small flower bed size garden and a few years, I had 3 small flower bed size beds…..in the front yard! The back yard was too shady so the only spot we had was the front yard. A couple years ago, […]

When I Fall In Love~Susan May Warren~Book Review

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I’ve enjoyed Susan’s books since the first one I reviewed several years ago. Her stories are funny, interesting, engaging, and thought provoking. She shares Scripture and Biblical thoughts in a seamless way. This book is a continuation of the Christiansen family series. I have to admit when I first saw it up for review, I […]

What I Wish…

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I wish that no one ever had to hurt again! I know that is unrealistic. I seem to have unrealistic wishes. When I was a little kid, my mom would ask what I wanted for Christmas and I’d say, “I want everyone in the world to know Jesus.” She would say, “Well that’s nice but […]
