Sweet, simple, everyday moments.
Being intentional in seeing the beauty amid the chaos using nothing but cell phone pics.
You don’t have to use Instagram (I’m jeannettg if you want to follow), but only cell phones, mkay?
This girl has the world’s most awesome hair.
It pains me to think of her one day stretching those curls through a hair straightener.
I finally started on a rainbow quilt I’ve been wanting to make. I have never quilted a single thing in my entire life, so basically this is going to be a disaster.
I ironed everything…sorted it according to Roy G Biv order…and…that’s about it so far.
Some of you mentioned that you still hadn’t figured out what our project was last weekend.
It doesn’t match the Christmas wreath on the door, but that’s coming down soon anyway.
I’m really happy with it. (Idea from this pin.)
This little one has suddenly taken to needing a midnight snack.
No bueno Mr. Man. I like you better when you sleep solid. And not so much when you are passed out until almost 9 in the morning with your dad. Annoying.
My kids have this unnatural affinity for Lunchables. And they eat outside any chance the weather permits.
I’ve seen some of my Insta friends post this idea of a muffin tin lunch and kept meaning to try it since I am rarely willing to shell out the money for the prepackaged orbs of slimy meat and hard cheese. And don’t forget that Oreo. That ONE oreo. Blech.
Um, LOVE it. Have done it twice since. You just fill each of the little spaces up with whatever random things you can find in your kitchen. Lunch meat, cheese, pretzels, oranges, berries, etc. The kids eat as they please. When they are “done” eating, I put the tray on the kitchen counter and when they inevitabley come to me begging for a snack an hour later…BOOM. Go snack from the tin.
Bonus? ONE dirty dish. One. This is life changing.
This guy sucks at napping. My other kids went down 2-3 times a day like clockwork. Each time for 1.5-3 hours. It was brilliant.
Mr. Caboose doesn’t much like to nap, and when he does it’s these obnoxious 20-45 minute gigs.
I was totally the Nap Whisperer. If they gave out letterman’s jackets for napping, I would pull it out and show people my varsity patches. Owen laughs in my face when I try to tell him this.
I don’t collect nativities.
But 75% off at Toys R Us (making it a cool $6.49)…I mean, I kinda HAD to. Woodstock as Jesus? Perfection.
I was supposed to make guacamole on Christmas Eve to go with our carnitas (super traditional, right?). But the avocados were still hard as rocks…I forgot all about them until the other day when Andy found a bag in the corner of the pantry. “What’s this???”
Happy, happy surprise.
I shared this on insta because it’s such a cute magazine and it’s FREE. I thought I was being all helpful.
Instead, it turns out I was pretty much the last person in the history of the Universe to be invited to the Lego Club Magazine party. Everyone already had it and loved it. I knew that.
But in case you are living in a cave like I am…call and order. It’s free. And cute. (Well, free until your kid needs more Legos to make whatever random alien thing they have in there. They are a smart lot those Lego folk. “Free” magazine.)
Have you heard of Sevenly? Ohmyword. Love, love, love, looooove them.
In a nutshell: they sell really cool t-shirts and sweatshirts. They donate $7 from each sale to a charity. Every week is a new charity/cause. The other week, their donations benefited Reece’s Rainbow, so I HAD to get a shirt. I also threw in a pack of stickers.
Awe.some. Makes me like Sevenly even more. I like funny people who give a crap.
