Champagne tastes and a generic beer budget

*names changed to protect lots of stuff Once upon a time there was this girl. We’ll call her Wittle Llama.  She had a great love for very pretty things.  She would pull out the Schmottery Farm catalog and show her patient, loving husband Wig Laddy the things she thought they should buy to outfit their […]

Menu Plan-still streamlined

I feel like we’re making NO progress cleaning out the freezer.  I’m only buying stuff for two meals a week, but the freezer and pantry seem just as full as before.  Frustrating! Monday Corn Noodle Casserole., green salad. Tuesday soccer practice Make your own salads and ciabatta bread. My loaf last week didn’t turn out […]

Weekend Linky-Spring Cleaning

Well, I’m pretty much not.  Because what’s the point?  We’ll likely have the house professionally cleaned after we move out out.  At this point in time, with the move, I’m making a choice (there’s that word again) to forgo spring cleaning.  My blinds will stay dusty.  So will my baseboards.  I just have better things […]

The next sound you hear will be my head exploding

Remember that we’re moving?  I’ve only mentioned that a time or five.  You might have also gleaned, by now, that I’m neurotic.  I like to think it’s charming.  I’d rather you not tell me otherwise. Once Big Daddy and I realized that there was no way for us to sell our house and not take […]

New to sewing? Try this!

I love instant gratification projects.  I really do.    If I can wing it without a pattern, that’s great.  If I can use a simple pattern, that’s okay too.  I was looking for some ideas for easy summer sewing for my girls when I found the link to Made by Petchy’s infant pinafore on It […]

Menu Plan-All Streamlined Like

Well, we’re still eating out of the freezer.  I have no idea how long doing that will take us.  It involves myself or Big Daddy padding out to the garage, assessing the contents of the chest freezer padding back in and then figuring out what you could eat from what’s there. In addition, spring is […]

Stopping Time

I often say, I wish I could stop time.  That I could stop us just as we are right now; with the Princess a docile pre-teen that still likes some little girl things and Littlebit as a vibrant preschooler who “needs to talk” and with Baby Bee as an adorable baby with sweet little teeth. […]

One good thing about sisters.

Before Baby Bee was born, Big Daddy and I worried about how Littlebit would take a new baby.  We were afraid that she’d be jealous and that, with her speech delay, would act out since she’d be unable to express herself.  Our worry was all for naught as from the moment Littlebit saw her sister, […]

Now you’re cooking with…beer?

Wen Big Daddy and I were married, he was the cook.  I was terrible.  I made runny Kraft Mac and Cheese and a LOT of Shake and Bake.  I don’t know that Big Daddy was that good of a cook, but he was better than me.  In the nearly eleven years we’ve been married, my […]

Always Fashionably Late

Or that’s what I tell myself.  Usually, I’m running around like a chicken with my head off and end up being late because I got sidetracked or someone did something they shouldn’t. Anyhow…welcome While this blog is only about 18 months old, I’ve maintained blogs and websites for the past ten years, with a private […]
