Joshua Tree.

Joshua Tree.

  Sorry, this isn’t a blog about a U2 album. It’s about our first family trip of the year.We camped in Joshua Tree. We didn’t get to the National Park in time to secure a camping spot there, so we opted for a privately owned campground called Joshua Tree Lake. We arrived late in the(…)

Please, celebrate meatballs.

Please, celebrate meatballs.

Yesterday on the way home from school, I turned the radio to 103.5 FM. The station that plays Christmas tunes all through the season. We like to play “Mariah Carey roulette”, turning it on to see if they are playing her All I Want for Christmas song. If you’re lucky, they won’t play it every(…)

“Let’s Cook.”- W. White

“Let’s Cook.”- W. White

The first week the kids were in school, I was a little lost as to what I should do with my time. I did some major chores that had been waiting, I enjoyed coffee with my husband in the morning, I had friends over. Then I had the idea to make a board on Pinterest(…)

When you wish upon a race…

When you wish upon a race…

I just wanted to put up some of Mae’s race pics. We had a nice (humid) weekend at runDisney. I’ll explain later why I didn’t race and how bummed I was that I didn’t (it effected me more than I thought it would). In the meantime, take a look at the cutest racer at the(…)

Early Galentines’ Day.

Early Galentines’ Day.

To make conversation, to share a joke, to perform mutual acts of kindness, to read together well-written books, to share in trifling and in serious matters, to disagree though without animosity—just as a person debates with himself—and in the very rarity of disagreement to find the salt of normal harmony, to teach each other something(…)

Wordless Wednesday: Disneyland Magic

Wordless Wednesday: Disneyland Magic

A few words on Wordless Wednesday: this was a special trip to DL. Less than a week until both kids are in school, we spent the day with Cameron at the park (hooray for working from home) and Mae was treated to a trip to the Bippidi Boppity Boutique. It was her birthday present from(…)

Zooey the Doll.

Zooey the Doll.

Zooey was given to Mae on her 1st birthday. Zooey is an American Girl Bitty Baby. I may be living vicariously through my daughter since I grew up wanting an AG doll, but never receiving one. (It’s fine, my mom made me dresses from patterns and had the books). When I found out I was(…)

Brewer Vacation 2013: Preview

              The Brewers are busy. So busy that I haven’t had time to blog about our vacation. In the meantime, here are two of my favorite pics of the Alabama Hills. How perfect are these quotes? It’s like nature is inspirational or something….            (…)

Summa-time. Summa-time.

Summa-time. Summa-time.

Oh, where does the time go? The last time I wrote on here, Josiah was still in school, Cameron still worked at Lamps Plus, we didn’t have our kitten and we were anxiously awaiting all of the summer time movies. Suddenly it’s Summer! The last weeks of school seemed to drag on and on. Projects(…)
