4 months. We’re 4 months in with little Kylie June, and I can’t believe it. It’s amazing how one little girl can change so much about my life. So pardon me while I’ve had few-and-far-between blog posts. I have a beautiful little girl and a spitfire little boy to look after!!
I just…don’t have time for blogging. I just…don’t have time for photography. I just…don’t have time to refinish any of the furniture that’s sitting in the garage waiting for me. I just…don’t have time to work on any sewing projects. I just…don’t have time to work on remodeling or decorating our house. I just…don’t have [...]
I realized recently that this post about my camera equipment is really outdated, so here I am today to rectify that situation. I’ve upgraded my body (camera body, that is…if only we could just “upgrade” our stomach, hips and thighs!), purchased a couple new lenses and learned gobs of new techniques since that post. My [...]
I can hardly believe our sweet Kylie June is 3 weeks old today. In celebration, here are her 1 week photos from a couple weeks ago! It takes me forever to get around to doing anything at all these days (well, anything other than changing diapers or making bottles), this being no exception. I hope [...]
Well, she’s been here for a week now actually. I’ve been a little bit busy the past few weeks, but in short: My blood pressure readings were gradually going up the last few months of pregnancy, so my doctor decided we should induce at 39 weeks. On August 17, 2011 at 1:05pm Miss Kylie June [...]
I can’t decide if these latest developments in the basement of our new home are a step forward… or a step in reverse. (and here’s what it looked like when we moved in and before it got quite this bad…) Oy.
I am for sure one of those people who is never truly satisfied with what they have. Honestly, most often I don’t really see it as a problem. It often is disguised as ambition, or being eager and motivated to move on to the next thing life holds for my family…a new house, vehicles, or [...]
So, my husband¬†(a.k.a. suspected werewolf) and I had three movie “date” nights on the sofa at home watching the three Twilight movies last week. I’m no Twilight super-fan, but I do enjoy those movies as just what they are – movies. I haven’t read the books, I don’t go to the movie premiers dressed as [...]
BEFORE: The previous owners painted this railing green in 1983. Or at least that’s how it looked! We’ve been living with it like this since we bought our home, but now that Spring is upon us (and we want to spend more time out on the deck!) I decided to finally take on the tedious [...]
Okay, I’ll be perfectly honest here. This is totally an adaptation of The Pioneer Woman’s totally deliciouso Chicken Taco recipe! I read it on her blog a few days ago but just couldn’t get past the idea of making tacos with chunks of chicken breast instead of shredded chicken. It just seems so un-Mexican-food-ish. So, [...]
