When I get a project going, especially gardening, I become obsessed. I want to work on it all day and every day until it gets done. But usually I’m lucky to get it done a little bit at a time since I have four kids running around the yard, plus the normal down and dirty of life, like [...]
What do you think of when you think of polka dots? My first thought is the 1950′s. I think of a housewife in a black and white polka dot dress, baking cookies, and waiting for the kids and husband to get home. I think vintage. But, are they vintage? Polka dots are in style and [...]
Spring’s warm weather is finally here! It feels so good to able to spend our days outside, letting our kiddos burn off all their stored up energy after a long winter. My son loves going on ‘nature adventures’ around our yard, finding leaves and flowers, catching bugs and adding rocks to his ‘rock collection.’ We [...]
Before becoming a stay at home mom, my job was a landscape designer. I loved beautifying people’s yards and creating wonderful landscapes where there wasn’t much aesthetic appeal before. I could not wait to share my love of gardening with my kids and it’s been so fun to have them involved in planting our own garden. I remember gardening [...]
I miss the little things… like going to the bathroom in peace, putting on my makeup without a child bumping my arm, and taking a relaxing shower (without stepping on a child). The joys of motherhood!

I think I’m a pretty good friend but I’m a really rotten neighbor. Maybe that’s too harsh. In some aspects, I think I’m a pretty decent person to live next to. For example, I don’t: mow my lawn when people are trying to sleep in on a Saturday morning let my dog do his business [...]
While at Walmart, all alone, late one Saturday night, I found myself standing in the children’s book section. I am sucker for books, especially children’s books and love to see what is new on the shelves. I came across a book called “If I could keep you little…” by Marianne Richmond. As I held the [...]
Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the amazing moms out there! We hope you are spoiled by your family!
Is it just me or have stripes been in style FOREVER? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining…I love them. There are so many types of stripes, such as, vertical, horizontal, big and bold, and skinny. Whatever style of stripe you like, you are most likely going to find it out there. I personally like [...]
