Have you ever…

Have you ever…

 Spent 35 minutes typing what you thought was a very insightful blog post, only to accidentally somehow press the right combination of keys on your keyboard and have the entire thing disappear right before your eyes?  In my Bible study earlier this week we had to answer the following question: “What trait do you think…

Messy is Ok

I imagine my life is not the only one that feels messy more than it feels neat, orderly and in control.    By messy I am referring to the physical and the circumstantial. For example, my house. It is WAY more often messy than it is clean. Here are a few pictures from today:  …

The Crazy Hazy Blogosphere!

I have decided tonight that I am completely overwhelmed by the world o’ blogs. Why? Because I just spent an hour and a half blog hopping from one site to another and another and another and another….instead of spending time writing original content of my own, reading my book for book club, or even, dare…

Our Little Princess

This was our little cutie before church today. I put this outfit on her and she said, “Mommy, do I look pretty? Do I look like you?” And another from our pre-dress up before this weekend’s princess party: At which point she asked, “Mommy, am I a pretty princess?” So sweet. First of all I’ll…

Another Messy Mommy Day

It’s been one of those days.  Scott works from home many days and his office is in our basement…at about 9:30 this morning he said, “Lis, what the heck is going on up there?” I just raised my eyebrows and shook my head. Crying baby, whining toddler, food smattered around the kitchen, explosive poopy diapers,…

Praying for your children

This may be a short posting as the girls are due to wake up any minute, but it’s an important one, so here goes!  I’ve been reading through Genesis this month (it started as an attempt to read the Bible in a year, but I’ve taken that expectation off of myself. I’m enjoying reading at…

Big Girl Beds and Princess Parties

While the daily grind of motherhood has often seemed to move so terribly slow in the last two and a half years, there are moments that have made me stop to say, “Whoa, where did the time go?” I know Ava is still very young, but there have already been occasions of growth, monumental in…

Patience

“…was reminded while reading Genesis 1 that if God created the world in six days, I need to stop doing everything in one.”  I posted this on my Facebook page yesterday and was surprised by the amount of feedback I received…I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I’m not the only one trying to take…

Fitting in Time for Getting Fit

I’m no fitness guru.  I’m not as fit as I’d like to be, nor do I workout as often as I would like to or probably should, but I do try my best to get to the gym as often as I can, and do manage to go 3 times a week on most weeks,…

The Grocery Game

I HATE the grocery game. I was sitting at Barnes & Noble a couple of weeks ago and flipped through this book on how to save money at the grocery store while still being able to prepare tasty and healthy meals for your family. The author claims that she now spends like $65 a week…
