Shall we talk about chores for a few moment? I don’t know about you, but I don’t particularly enjoy them (though I do love being a homemaker). You tell me how many stay-at-home moms enjoy scrubbing bathroom toilets on their knees? I have yet to meet even one!

I do however enjoy the vacuuming, the sweeping (of course, if you know me, you know I’m an obsessive sweeper), the mopping, the dusting, and, of course, the laundry! …

Tuesday's Tidings

Hers

1. I got my third workout outfit from Fabletics last week and I’m LOVING IT! I purchased the West Lake and the colors are so pretty, and the top…it is so dang soft and lightweight. It is so nice to have cute workout clothes because I kind of think it fuels my motivation.

2. I took the girls shopping on Saturday while the guys were touring a local aviation museum with Josh’s grandpa, and we hung around in Barnes and Noble for awhile. First of all, get the S’more cookie from the Starbucks cafe in the bookstore. The three of us shared it and it was delicious. Second – I really want this cookbook from Skinny Taste. I had time to flip through it, and everything looked amazing….

Sausage & Pea Manicotti

Awhile back, Josh got me this Sling TV thing. Have you guys heard of it? It’s like a little streaming doohickey that allows you to get channels without having to do the whole cable or dish thing. This thing has made my little housewife life more amazing. You know why? I can get ALL of the Food…

Weekly Menu for May 11-17

I hope you all had a fantastic Mother’s Day. But today is another momentous occasion. TODAY is my daughter Gracie’s eleventh (What? Why?) birthday, and I’m a bit in shock that she is truly that old. I still remember holding my little eight pound blessing in my arms and crying over her out of sheer happiness. Today,…

Thank You for the Chatter

I sat in the car the other night, driving home with my oldest daughter, Gracie, from my monthly homemaking and hospitality class. It was dark and past 9 pm (close to my bedtime), and I could feel the tug of sleepiness creep into my body. Gracie, on the other hand, was energized from the excitement…

Fruity Jam Butter

Hey guys, I’m back over at Evermine today with another (yes another) Mother’s Day gift idea. Have you ever made jam butter before? You haven’t? Well, oh my gosh, it is so easy and takes only two ingredients! I loved this idea of fruity jam butter so much because I happen to adore toast. Toast…

We’re settling into the new house and transitioning from leasing to owning and let me tell you, is it exciting and kind of strange. You go from this mindset of having to clear things with your landlord or not being able to do things because it’s not your house to having freedom to do what you want…and total responsibility for what you do!

It’s taking time to adjust. I mean, the idea that we could get another pet and not have to clear it with anybody or pay a deposit is AMAZING! Not that we’re going to get another pet anytime soon.

But we could. On the other hand, knowing that we’re responsible for fixing anything that needs fixing…scary much?…
