me: Bella, do you want to go to the library?
m: New books to read! Yay!
If I sneeze, cough, clear my throat or just sniffle…
m: Bless you, Mama! Bless you, bless you, bless you!
As she is clearly getting ready to make something in her diaper…
me: Bella, do you […]
Well, it looks like I’m just going to have to be Switzerland this weekend. My brother sent me an email after I questioned whether or not I should wear my Virginia Tech shirt today. “Do you ever want to talk to your brother again?” He was kidding, of course. I think. Anyway, it’s getting kind […]
Yay! My dad’s scarf is finally finished. He’ll be so happy. I bought him this yarn last year from Liberty in London. It’s Rowan Cashsoft and is super soft and cuddly! He got a hat for his birthday and this scarf was his Father’s Day present. Since it was hot in June, I gave […]
Hey folks! Martha Stewart might be stopping by to take a look at my blog, so let’s tidy up a bit and set out some fresh flowers. Bella, can you keep your barrette in for more than five minutes? Let’s try and make a good first impression, shall we?
Seriously, Martha is […]
Things my daughter said last week while we were watching Brady that made me laugh out loud:
When he was pulling on my glasses and whining because I wouldn’t let him chew on them, she said, “Use words, Brady!”
We were trying to get him to pull the lever on the Elmo See and Say. […]

Every time […]
Yesterday morning was so beautiful. The sun was shining. Dew was sparkling on the freshly mowed grass. There was a crisp chill in the air and a spring in our steps. We were going to see someone special at the bookstore.
Oh, who am I kidding? I was rushing around trying to get there on […]
I feel silly posting about this little pumpkin. It looks almost the same as last week’s apple. But, I got all excited yesterday and posted my trick or treat bags and Halloween cards and totally forgot that today was I Made it Myself Day. (I have to support my fellow crafters!) […]
Around here on the blog, though, you’d think it was already October! I’ve been busy sewing up some orange and black goodness that I wanted to share with you. It all started with a doodle.
Then, M and I were sorting through (playing with) fabric, and I got inspired to make her a trick […]
Here are the little dolls that I poured my heart and soul into for my daughter. They sit on her window sill practically untouched. She got a “Thomas the Choo Choo Train Coloring Book” the other day so the dolls’ heyday is officially over. Although she now knows four new words: vampire, ghost, skeleton and […]
