Simple. Fast. Tasty. At this point in the holiday season, that’s all any of us can really spare for our baked goods, isn’t it? With parties and activities to attend, gifts to wrap, and travel plans to finalize, there isn’t a lot of time left for recipes that take a long time. Starting today, and […]
I don’t know why, but for some reason I feel as though my decorations need to be different for every single holiday. Not only that, but I like my decorations to be different for each holiday from one year to the next. The only problem is, that gets expensive. And fast. I don’t know about […]

I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since I last posted. And what a week it’s been! L is now officially a three year old (more on that tomorrow), and our house was gleefully destroyed by a band of toddlers on Saturday. And if that’s not enough, we’ve got company coming for Independence Day…which […]

It’s so hard to believe that Independence Day is just next week! Why is it that summer seems to go by in such a flash? L will actually be turning TWO this week! And I realized that I haven’t done anything yet for T’s birthday. Our hydrangeas are just blooming…that should mean that July 4th […]
“But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can […]
Throw a few burgers on the grill, light some fireworks and have a great time celebrating 237 years of independence.
Yes, it’s time for another round of printables…and there are some great new printables out for Independence Day this year! But first, I want to congratulate my bloggy friend Morgan on the birth of her second daughter, Taylor, last Thursday. Morgan is the author of Pepper Design Blog, where she chronicles life and the remodel […]
I can’t believe that memorial day is this weekend. Where did Spring go? Our peonies have just bloomed, the hydrangea is still just covered in buds, and the forecasted cicadas still haven’t found it warm enough to come above ground. This time last year, I was a bloated 7.5 month pregnant lady who could barely […]
It turns out that basil loves to grow on our upper deck. It loves all the direct sunlight so much that we ended up with TONS of it over the summer. More than I ever anticipated. But what do you do with extra basil when you get a little tired of homemade pizza, herb infused […]
Can you believe that I haven’t looked at my computer or email for three days? Thankfully we’ve all made it home safely, and now we’re trying to settle into a bit of a routine. I took a moment to look back at what was going on last July, and can already tell that life is […]
As promised, here are the July 4th printables I’ve found this year (straight from the hospital with the little one curled up on my chest – life couldn’t be better!). Don’t forget you can check out former posts with patriotic printables (Memorial Day 2012, July 4th 2011) A Night Owl WCC Designs via Catch My […]
Here’s how bad I am at keeping the house decorated for the seasons: I still have Easter decor up behind our table. And it’s currently coupled with the Patriotic Centerpiece I made for Memorial Day. Ooops. With all the family that’s expected to visit in the next month or so, I really need to […]
Only 21 days left until my little girl’s due date. But, let’s face it, as a repeat c-section, she’s going to be out by July 5th. And that means that my little nugget might actually be born on July 4th! Wouldn’t that be the best thing ever to always have fireworks on your birthday? So […]
