Day 25 looking down

At my third maybe fourth pair of socks I'm random like that.


I have been dreaming up scrub recipes all month long. A recent concoction I named coffee nut is delish. It's become my new favorite shower companion. I need to add some new flavors to the shop and get some more interest headed that way. My best seller this spring by far has been my rosy-licious scrub. It is lovely. Everyone who has tried it has developed a serious crush. Look for a give away coming soon !

A little lunch

Since I have been home my little lunches and little dinners have been in full swing. I really enjoy making the littles meals as fun and entertaining as possible. A recent lunch over spent break was lots of fun to make quesadillas celery peanut butter pick ups with vanilla goldfish and craisins. They loved it.

A celebration

The Kinderkid ... He's like an official reader now. We finally finished his first ever reading list with more then a month left of school. We were very excited. I threw a out of nowhere you did it cupcake party, complete with candles and a silly song. That's just life at the nest it's fun it's filled with live and smiles. How do you celebrate little milestones , even the made up ones in your family for your littles?

Day 24

Something I am grateful for. Memories like these. Old and then vintage. Memories that fill my little nest my mind and my little heart. A photo of me and my sister. A snapshot of the boys snuggled up. This was actually the first time I caught David's smile on film. It's one of my favorite snaps of my monkey Indians .

Sometimes ...

Brilliance strikes and you gotta run with it. I have a way of starting trends.

Day 18


I have a lot of it. It's curly, naturally. I have a love hate relationship with my locks. It used to be I hated my hair but as I got older I grew into it. I appreciate it now far more then I ever did. It sets me apart from people in my family and the circles I travel in. It's kinda my calling card if you will. Everyone always remembers me because of my hair... And my witty sense of humor and personal style . I like to add the last two but mostly it's my hair. As I get older if I'll let it go gray naturally or if I will color the years away. Luckily I'm not there yet.

Nothing short of brillant I know I don't even like peeps or s'mores but the littles go bonkers over them so you do what you gotta do ya know .... I should really count these naughty mommy moments like seriously it might be fun to look back on one day !

First Easter home at the nest. The littles and I would not be spending the actual holiday together but we made do with a tiny family celebration and a good old fashioned egg hunt. David won his first ever egg hunt. I think it's mostly because his brother was down and out but he gave it the old college try. I love being home with my littles seeing them enjoy all of the things I always wanted for them.
Day #11 where I ate breakfast
In the kitchen
At the counter
I drank a cup of coffee and day dreamed of mornings gone by
Quiet ghosts of memories and laughs I looked at the mess around me and sighed I dumped the coffee out and went on with my day.

Indoor fun

It's been a caca kinda spring break let me tell ya ! I ended up at the emergency room very unexpectedly but that's a rant I will go into on another day. After that my day was kind of a throw away I came home to two littles that needed to be entertained as it was rainy and g is recovering from pink eye and a terrible flu.

I whipped out jenga! I love jenga and they seemed to really love it to .. For awhile anyways . The fun lasted about 30 minutes a record of sorts for the littles they have an awful attention span when cooped up with cabin fever.

Day 5 tiny

A tiny little glimpse into the life of David. Things he has been up to. A lot . He's a shy fella but very comfy in his own skin too.
Once upon a time I did this. I let someone get me down and kick me around while I was down there. It's totally amazing how much power you can give someone and not even really know that you did. I'm have been working very hard on the betterment of me and my life so I can make a great happy little life and nest for my littles. I am pleased with myself... That's all I can really say these days oh and I'm totally blessed!

Day 4 someone who makes me happy

Like all of the time every single day. Even though I often find myself taking a deep yoga breath a few more times a day now that I'm a single parent . I can't imagine my life any other way ... Well that's not entirely true I can imagine it another way but hey stuff happens!
