Day 129: Primary Training.

By |March 9th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I had the worst day at church today. I was completely weary to my bones after 2 hours with my Sunbeam class. There wasn't any specific reason, none of the kids were especially difficult, but I just felt overwhelmed and defeated when I got home. The thought of going back to church later just crushed

Day 128: International Women’s Day.

Here are 8 women who have already made the world a better place. I'm a woman and I like it that way. I want to be strong and intelligent and giving and graceful. I want those things for my daughter too. What I don't want is what a lot of media is telling us we

Day 127: Home Slice.

For reals, y'all. We have been sticking to real food like glue after my horrible migraine. I had almost forgotten how much I love making pizza at home. I love how much more flavorful homemade crust is and controlling the quality of ingredients. Using real, fresh mozzarella, homemade tomato sauce, and fresh basil. Hells yeah.

Day 126: A Purple Hair Awkward/Awesome.

By |March 6th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Awkward I wake up with purple streaks across my face from sleeping on my hair. My neck turns purple by the end of the day and when I try to scrub it off begins to look like strangulation bruises. While at the play area a little girl came up to me and said, "My mom

Day 125: New Do, Take Two.

I really liked the purple streaks I got last week but I had a feeling I wanted to go all the way. I'm so glad I did! It's only been a few hours and I already feel just right. You know how sometimes you just need your outside to match how you feel on the

Day 124: Explosions.

By |March 4th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

My Facebook status sums it up well: "I woke up with the worst migraine I've had in years. No more fast food and back to reading all labels! It's so not worth it. Real food tastes better and doesn't cause me excruciating pain. I'm just so mad I didn't even like the damn food! I

Day 123: None of us are perfect.

Bullying - Stop It. I saw this video on my Facebook news feed today and it really hit home how incredibly different life is these days. It's easy to say that kids today have to deal with the same things every other generation had to deal with. And it's true. There have always been bullies,

Day 122: Getting Back To It

By |March 2nd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

So excited to be back to trying new recipes and cooking most of our meals again! I just haven't been feeling up to looking for recipes, meal planning, grocery shopping, or cooking lately. I guess being practically quarantined in our house for months changed me a bit. This week though I've had some great things

Day 121: Problem Solvers.

By |March 1st, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I wanted to share something that we started this week that has really helped us start to turn around a very trying stage with Dex and Veda. Someone shared 10 Alternatives to "Consequences" When Your Child Isn't Cooperating from Aha Parenting. I admit, sometimes when I see articles like this I roll my eyes and then

Day 120: Improving birth.

By |February 28th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I'm so excited for some of the recent information coming out on an issue so very personal and important to me. These are HUGE steps forward in improving birth outcomes for mothers and babies. I was actually in tears when I read these the other day and they hit me even harder today as I worked
