Decking the Halls

We are slowly but surely getting ready for Christmas around here! There is still lots to do, but we were pretty early with our decorations this year. It was the weekend before Thanksgiving and the boys got the bug to put up the tree, so we went with it.

The Polar Express 2015

This year we were fortunate enough to ride the Polar Express train ride again. Man, it was hard to get tickets. You can literally see the tickets selling out as you're scrambling to order them. I'm so glad we managed to get ours... back in June!

Just Scootin' Around

Back, oh, about six weeks ago (that's how behind I am on blogging), we were visiting my parents and the boys got a special surprise: rides on my dad's scooter!

Halloween with Jango & Boba Fett

I'm a little behind on this blog post, but here we go! This year, we had a Star Wars theme for Halloween. Tyson (7) was Jango Fett and Miles (5) was his son, Boba Fett. They were so close to choosing Darth Vader and Darth Maul, but ended up going with the bounty hunter duo instead. :-)

Hello and Happy Friday! I just wanted to share a few minor changes we made in our kitchen eating area recently, including refinishing the tabletop (huge sigh of relief).

Still Sewing Scarves

This should be my last big batch of scarves for awhile. Whew! There are so many cute ones here for women and children alike.

Thank you to so many of you for taking advantage of the September scarf sale, and for continuing to order custom infinity scarves into October as well.

Churning Out Sewing Orders

Hello friends! If you're a member of my Facebook group (and if you're not, you should be!), you've seen all the sewing projects and scarves I've been working to complete lately. It's been a little crazy but I am doing my best to keep up! Here's a quick recap...

End of Summer Fun

September is going by a little too quickly for me... summer is winding down fast! We have been fitting in some fun activities lately.

Our New Kitten, Rocky

We must be gluttons for punishment, because we decided to take in a kitten! Who could say no to this face?!


His name is Rocky, he's seven weeks old, and he's 1.2 pounds of clumsiness, curiosity, and orneriness all balled up into one fluffy little package. His meow is high-pitched and squeaky, he gets into everything, he uses his claws for everything, and he is in motion constantly. It's always playtime for Rocky. He's cute and lovable, yet exhausting!

Book Review: Hands Free Life

Hello friends! Recently I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from Rachel Macy Stafford. You may know her as the Hands Free Mama, New York Times Bestselling Author! Her new book, "Hands Free Life", is due to release tomorrow, September 8, and I was one of the lucky ones to receive an early copy. Squee!! I can't wait to share a brief review with you so you can get your own copy very soon!

Hands Free Life Book Review by Mom-Made

I had just recently begun following Hands Free Mama and just love the message she conveys. However, I hadn't read her first book and wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Would I feel guilty for being on my phone or computer too much after reading it??

Late Summer Trip to St. Louis

I wanted to share some pictures of a little back-to-school trip we took to the St. Louis area. The primary purpose of the visit was to go to Six Flags, for our water slide and roller coaster-loving kids!

First Day of School 2015

Just like that, summer vacation is over, and we are officially in our back-to-school schedule. I always have mixed feelings this time of year! It sure was a fun summer, but I think the boys were ready to go back.

Miles is a big Kindergartener this year! He is in a class with K-1 students. Tyson is in a small class with second and third graders (he's in second) at the same school. We love the multiage classroom concept, and they have many familiar faces from last year.

All smiles and no tears from anyone (mom included) on the first day of school! Biscuit had to be in most of the pictures, of course.

The Junkyard (In Progress)

We have an area of our yard that Tyson affectionately dubbed "the junkyard". It is the remnants of the original farmhouse foundation, and for the past 20 years it seems that it has only been used as a burn pile, brickyard, junk collection, and monster weed attraction.

Broken Glasses... Not Once, But Twice

It seems funny that just at the end of May I was writing about Miles getting glasses, and now here it is early August and we are going on pair number three. Ouch! This boy is a rough one.

Southern Cousins Visit

We always have a fun time when the "southern" cousins visit! Brooks and Rawley are ten and our boys really look up to them. We always enjoy having them up for a visit with Grandpa Jeff and Grandma Debbie.

Laundry Room Makeover

I'm sharing our updated laundry room/mudroom today. I'm so thrilled to get this room up to speed functionally and make it a light, bright space that I don't mind doing laundry in. It is a spacious room that we really appreciate having!

It's also huge change from our last house, with the tiniest laundry room ever that I always felt "stuck" in.

Sources are listed at the end of the post. Here we go...

Summer Adventures

Hello! Just wanted to pop in and share some pictures of Tyson and Miles having fun outdoors this summer. We are really loving all this space to run and the beautiful weather we've been having. All the crazy rain seems to have slowed down and we are having lots of fun adventures.

Summer Sewing + Embroidery

Hi there! Just wanted to share some sewing projects I have finished up. Several of these were for us, and some were just me playing around with my embroidery machine (which is always fun!). I realized I also sewed a couple blankets and pillowcases which I didn't get pictures of.

Summer Front Porch

Hey there! Popping in to share some pictures of our front porch today. It was rather neglected last summer but now I've made it into a happy, inviting space (even if it is small). And the hydrangeas are starting to bloom again!

Summer Survival Tips

Happy (Official) Summer!

Some of you are just starting summer vacation, but it's hard to believe that our kids have been out of school for almost a month now! We are getting into the swing of things and enjoying lazier days.

I'm a little late to the game, but wanted to compile a list of ideas I've found online to make your summer go smoother with kids. From fun ideas to reward charts to daily chores to staying organized, there are so many great resources out there.

Summer Survival Tips for Parents by Mom-Made
Everybody needs a little down time now and again

I'm trying not to pick too many new "systems" because I don't want to go overboard, but here are some that have caught my eye and we may implement in one way or the other.

Touches of Blue Decor

In rediscovering my decorating style over the past year, I find that I am drawn to cool, calming, coastal colors and soft neutrals. One color that keeps showing up in decor everywhere is blue, specifically aqua. I hope I never tire of it!

It's nice to have similar colors throughout the house so decor can be mixed and matched.

Tyson's First Lost Tooth

It's a miracle! At 7 years 2 months and 8 days, Tyson has lost his first tooth. Not that anyone was counting or anything, haha!

School's Out For Summer!

As of last Thursday, the kids are on summer vacation! The month of May was quite a whirlwind and we're definitely ready for a more relaxed summer "non-schedule".

But what a great school year it was! Miles finished preschool and Tyson completed first grade.

Fun with their buddies

Glasses for Miles

Hey, what do you know, we have two kids in glasses! We found out a couple weeks ago when Miles went in for his Kindergarten eye exam that he is far-sighted like his brother. I guess they got their poor vision from me. Sorry dudes! ;-)

Mother's Day Nature Walk

Hey there, and Happy Memorial Day!

I just realized I didn't post our Mother's Day pictures. We had a nice meal with family back home (of which I neglected to take any pictures) and then went on a nature walk at the local waterfowl refuge. Well, "some" of us went... others stayed behind to watch NBA basketball. Not mentioning any names. ;-)

The boys LOVE going there.


And I LOVE being their mom! :-)

Spring Order for the Gingerbread House

Hi friends, I just finished up the latest Gingerbread House order and dropped the goodies off last week. Go check them out if you have a chance! Seriously the coolest toy store ever!

This is me hard at work trying to get everything finished up by Friday...
