Motherhood

During this time of year... well, often throughout the year... I reflect on the calling of Motherhood.Growing up, I often didn't realize what motherhood was really like and all that it entailed. After all, raising kids isn't too hard, right? WRONG!!Motherhood is messy. It's exhausting. It is draining and thankless and never-ending. Just as you think you have gotten it all figured out and life is smooth sailing, one of your children will vomit all over the rug, or one will punch another one in…See More

Newest Obsession

But that one child at home is like a little leech when Missy isn't home!So, I'm breaking nearly all of my previous promises to blog about Missy's birthday party and other such happenings over the summer. If you are DYING to see snippets, hop on over to my Instagram feed and check it out... Though you'll have to scroll back a…See More

I Felt Like Getting a Little Crafty!

I think we had a moment of insanity back in the fall when we asked different family members all to come to visit us for the holidays.  His mom and her husband came to visit from December 22nd until 26th.  His brother came to visit from the 24th through the 29th.  Our family from North Carolina came for the night of the 23rd.  And finally, my mom, dad, and two brothers came from the 29th until January 3rd.  Crazy, right?  It was all fun and although hectic at times, it was less stressful than we…See More

'Twas a week before Christmas

... And all through house, not a creature was stirring ... Except for a crab. Flounder the Third did it again! This feisty little thing loves to give me a scare and remind me how attached to these little guys I've become. Seriously, I never, in a million years, thought I'd become so attached to hermit crabs! But I am. Sebastian came to live with us last February and he is so easy!   Clean, docile, friendly.  Then we got Flounder to keep Sebastian company.  The first Flounder.  He had something…See More

Monica commented on Sonja Collier's blog post Burlap Christmas
"I love it too! I have white burlap stockings and tree skirt. For the rest, it's kinda glittery with creams and blues and greens and whites with some pink thrown in."

Monica replied to Minde Alvey's discussion How do you manage your time on your blog while managing your family and house?
"I write at my computer during quiet/nap times and after the kids go to bed.  I also write rough drafts on my phone while I'm waiting in lines or sitting in the passenger seat of the car or wherever I don't have the kids to worry…"
