Why I’m crazy and cloth diapering this time.

January 22, 2013

If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would cloth diaper, I would probably laugh in your face. However, back then I was on the fence about breastfeeding, would have never considered co-sleeping, and wouldn’t have given attachment parenting a second look. Having a kid does things like that to you. You [...]

Family, fun, and frivolous fall!

September 18, 2012

Fall is the season where I finally begin to venture out again. The heat is beginning to dissipate, the days are cloudy just enough to break up the monotony of the sun, the longer sleeves and cardigans get moved up to the front of the closet. Here is what I’ve been up to lately. When [...]

Birthday Party Plans… or lack thereof.

March 14, 2012

Birthday date? Check. Birthday Party theme? Check. Birthday guests? Check. Birthday Budget? Negative. Is it bad that I’m really not making a big deal out of Belle’s birthday this year?

Making it work: some thoughts on life, family, and finances.*

July 1, 2011

Impromptu, slightly serious post.  Well, 90% of my posts are impromptu.  I’m a poor scheduler. We’ve made a lot of sacrifices for me to stay at home.  I think that there’s a common misconception that women who stay at home have a husband that makes really great money and it’s possible to live a great [...]

June 17, 2011

We took our little miss to the zoo for the first time this past Tuesday. My brother came with us and we had the most fun time! Thanks to the Oklahoma Blood Institute we got 2 free vouchers.  Add in the fact that we packed a picnic lunch, bought a Sprite, and brought our reusable water [...]

Tutorial Tuesday – Wipes Case Tutorial

May 31, 2011

Finally, a Tutorial Tuesday! Actually, this one was kind of an accident.  I’ve been making these for almost 2 years now, and I don’t necessarily consider them part of my “tutorial” qualifications, because my Tutorial Tuesdays are designed to force me to learn something new and then share it with you. However, I am so [...]

Recipe Thursday – Saving Money

May 5, 2011

Okay, so this isn’t a recipe.  However, as I’m going to visit family tomorrow, I am trying to take care of things around the house to save money and keep food from spoiling.  My grandmother is the queen of thriftiness (aren’t all grandma’s?) and she has taught me a lot.  Now, I don’t do all [...]
