I’m Loving This Weather!

Yesterday I took the boys out to play. I put Dean down on a blanket with some toys and opened Pierce’s sandbox. They played for an hour before Dean wanted to be picked up. That’s a long time for a 9-month old!! It was great. I did some more yard work (raked branches) and then dd got off the bus. After a bit, dh...

I’m SOOO Sore!

My upper legs/butt are so sore today! It’s been so long since I’ve been sore I almost forgot I had muscles down there. Last night dh and I did a short (30 min) Wii Fit session. I did lunges, squats, sit-ups, push-ups, some yoga, jogging, and a few others. It didn’t help that earlier in the day I did some yard work. We’ve had...

Hairy Baby-Stalker!

Whenever the baby eats, there’s a baby-stalker. When the 3 yr old eats, there’s a baby-stalker. He lurks in the shadows under the table. He follows quietly but you can still feel his hot breath on your calves. His cold nose inches close to your hand. His tongue reaches out to a messy baby-finger.  He knows if he’s patient, he’ll be rewarded with a...

Dear Husband’s Boss…

I know he’s smart. I know he’s a valuable asset to your company. I know there’s quite a few things that only he can do there. And I know he’s working on a major project you have going on. And that there’s more than one he has to do. But don’t you think you could send him home once in a while?  His curfew...

What’s Your Food Budget?

Glue 4 Families had a great post on grocery budgeting and what the US spends compared to other countries. It’s really interesting…check it out real quick! I commented that I spend about $80 for food a week, not including miscellaneous stuff, like paper towels, pet food, tp, etc. A couple other commenters were surprised. So I thought I’d do a quick demo on how...

I Made the Krispies!

Remember the jumbo rice krispies I bought a few days ago? I made krispie treats last night. I only did 2 cups of jumbos and then 4 cups of regular ones. I wanted to save some of the jumbos for the boys so I didn’t use the full 6 cups. Anyway, they turned out good. A little sweeter than the normal ones and they...

I’m Getting Older…obviously.

I was reading Mature Not Senile’s recent post and she got me thinking of my perceptions on getting older. As a teenager, I figured when I got married and had kids, trying to keep in shape and look good wouldn’t matter. I don’t know why. I guess I just thought once I snagged a good guy, he (and therefore I) wouldn’t care what I...

It’s Official…I AM Crazy.

We’re planning our summer vacation trip. Yeah, we have to plan now because my parents and a brother/his family want to go to Nauvoo, IL on our way back from Wyoming/Utah (where all my family lives, where our main vacation will be).  So they have to get time off from work to plan the Nauvoo trip, so that’s why we’re looking at dates now....

Jumbo Rice Krispies

I don’t do reviews or anything like that, since I started this for my family and for fun. But, I did buy something you need to check out. The new Jumbo Rice Krispies. I got them for the baby as a snack…baby food snacks are so expensive. I opened them up when we got home from the store and of course had to try...
