My daughter’s Tae Kwon Do academy is having a summer reading challenge. She has to track how many minutes she reads a day. I looked around online for a nice, simple reading log, but couldn’t find anything I liked, so I made one. Then I thought: I bet others would like something […]
It’s that time of year again. Spring. When leggings from last Fall are too short, but it’s not warm enough to pair them with sandals and call them capris.
My daughter is a size 7/8 waist and a 9/10 inseam. It’s so annoying.

We did a crazy dessert tonight: Peeps fondue. I know, it’s a school night and all that sugar!
My daughter received this Peeps “cookbook” last year and has been talking about the fondue recipe since then. Yes, for an entire year. It’s Peeps season. How could I say no?

I figured many of the stations would be the same, which was fine because she approached them with a whole year […]
Remember the first prayer pillow I made? Well, the recipient’s sister was baptized last weekend, so I thought she should have one of her very own. Everything came from my stash. My daughter approved the colors and fabric.
I had some more expensive transfer paper on hand and found I didn’t like […]
