Looking Back – The Table.

Having two sets of twins is just crazy. It’s every bit as much work now that they’re 9 1/2 and 11 as it was when they were 1 1/2 and 3. It’s just a different kind of work. I do so love looking back at old blog posts from those long, crazy days when they […]

Ugly Sweaters for Days.

I love the whole concept of Ugly Christmas Sweaters. I feel like I’ve earned the right to wear them ironically, proudly celebrating their tackiness – because as someone who worked in an office and dressed “business casual” during the 90s, I actually wore holiday-themed sweaters the first time around and thought I looked completely adorable.

You know how some households of small children seem like they pretty much run on ketchup and ranch dressing? Amazingly enough, my household is not one of them.

Here is a recipe I’ve been meaning to share for a minute: Baked Potato Soup. It’s been in the back of my mind for months now, just waiting for cool weather to creep in. Now that the air is crisp and the leaves are crunchy, it’s time to break out the soup recipes! Now, I […]

I was recently part of Laura Kelly’s Popcorn Box Blog Hop, a fun little exercise in creativity, where a group of creative bloggers were invited to decorate a popcorn box in any way we wanted, using any materials we wanted. This sums up what we were trying to do: “The objective is to create in […]
