Day 141: Tick Tock, Tick Tock.

By |March 21st, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

We finally saw Frozen when it came out on DVD. We went over to our friends house and watched it and I cannot get that song out of my head. No not the one everyone keeps talking about. Do you want to build a snowman? Oh, all the feels! Anyways. It's gorgeous out today and

Day 140: Easy Mark.

It was nap time when I heard a timid knock at my door followed quickly by the shrill peal of our doorbell. I jumped up and glanced hastily around trying to determine how much I could pick up and shove into the closet on my way to the door. You know, just in case it

A good friend of mine had surgery today and I was so glad to be able to have her boys over to play with us while she was at the hospital. Her boys are so sweet and we had the best time hanging out with them. The kids ran through the house playing monsters, built

Tomorrow marks 13 years since Kai and I started dating! It has been amazing to have my best friend by my side through the hardest moments and the happiest moments in my life. We've shared so much and I am so very thankful to have found each other so early in life. These days, when

Day 137: Irish You Were Here.

I'm a little bit Iowish. Kiss me, I'm Irish. I love St. Patrick's Day! I know it has become a heavily commercial holiday that has little to do with Ireland or redheads or green or even St. Patrick himself but I still love it. I've always loved St. Patrick's Day because it's pretty awesome to

Day 136: Kai’s turn.

Kai spoke in Sacrament meeting today on a section in The Family: A Proclamation to the World. He spoke about how happiness is achieved in our marriage and family. It was a really wonderful talk. I'm thankful Kai doesn't have a problem speaking in public and is comfortable preparing speeches and papers. Oh, it was

Day 135: Beware.

The Ides of March are here but not yet gone. This has been quite a week. Let's hope that the ides or the halfway point of the month signal a change in our house because I just can't go on being sick all the time and having everything in a massive state of chaos. So

Today is π Day! (March 14 = 3.14, π=3.14.....) Happy Pi Day to us all! We are huge dorks so every year we have pie on pi day. I usually make homemade individual chicken pot pies and some kind of mini fruit pie for dessert. Not because I'm showing off but because I love to

Day 133: Fairy Juice.

By |March 13th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I'm just going to believe that purple Gatorade is made by kind-hearted fairies. It has continued to be the only thing I've managed to keep down, in, or near me all day.  I do feel like I should disclose that I normally make my own "Gatorade" or "Pedialyte" and it's crazy easy to do. I

Day 132: The Lost Day.

By |March 12th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Today was awful. It was like a scene from every horror movie ever made and a few of my worst nightmares. I'll save the most graphic details but just know that it's hard to be a good mom good person functional human being when you start your period and get the stomach flu on the
