What Books Are You Reading?

What are you guys reading right now?  Not what are you reading to your kids, or books about parenting.  I mean something just for you. I’m looking for some new books for the summer.  Maybe even some new authors!  Any recommendations? I’ve been re-reading the Hunger Games.  I’m so impressed by her ability to describe…

Homemade Strawberry Popsicles

More strawberry goodness.  We are literally overflowing with strawberries around here.  They are falling off my counter onto the floor, the sink.  I’m giddy over the smell in the air. Before I share this delicious summer treat, I have to share this picture of my son.  We went strawberry picking last week twice.  I thought…

The Perfectly Indulgent and Naturally Soothing Bath

If there’s one thing I’m an expert at- this is it.  OK, napping and reading come in a close second.  And maybe drinking iced tea and eating anything freshly baked, but I digress. We recently bought our first house, and it came with this incredible bath tub! We looked for 1 1/2 years for the…

What To Do With Too Many Ideas

Last week on the way home from school one day I decided to count how many things my kids asked me to do.  Now this was only one kid, and it was a short ten minute drive.  I counted 20 things!  Twenty separate but equal things that he absolutely had to do, and all of…

One of My Favorite Blogs Out There

I told myself that if I started a blog, I would do it right and post most weekdays- at least 4 times a week.  I’m running behind already!  But I have an excuse- the computer hates me.  It can sense when I’m near it or need it, and it chose to take a few personal…

Wacky Wednesday Game

Yesterday was Wacky Wednesday around here.  Have you read that Dr. Suess classic yet?  It was written under his real name, Theo LeSieg.  Its a great counting and observation book, but mostly my kids just adore it because its so goofy. They laugh like crazy every time we read it over the house in the…
