I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! Focusing on five little things that made me happy is my way of recapping the week and a reminder to stay grateful. 1 – Pool Time. After a blazing summer of 90 degree temps, I finally made it to the neighborhood pool. I was… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
This is my third year to work on a year-long cross stitch project, and the second year to play along with a mystery stitch-along month by month. Stitching Once Upon a Time in 2014 and Woodland Creatures in 2015 was so much fun – it’s addictive! In 2016 I’m joining the Frosted Pumpkins on an adventure… Continue reading The Pumpkin Passport Cross Stitch: September
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Trick or Treat Costume Club Cross Stitch The final clue of the new Halloween SAL from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery was released last week, but I finished up the September portion of the Passport SAL (pics coming tomorrow!) before starting.

Alternate title: Epic Nesting Failure At 37 weeks, my pregnancy is drawing to an end I’m full of conflicting emotions. I go through cycles of excitement and anxiety so many times in one day, it can be exhausting. And lately I’ve been adding nesting to the rotation. This past weekend I had three goals: Organize… Continue reading When All Else Fails, Go to the Pool
The calendar may say it’s Fall but when it’s still 90 degrees every day, it doesn’t feel like summer has gone anywhere at all.

Happy first day of Fall! It’s still 90 degrees here in Tennessee but that can’t stop me from bringing out the autumn accessories. Some years I distinguish between Halloween and Thanksgiving, but this year I’m just mingling everything together. Pumpkins and spider webs and foliage, oh my! … Continue reading #TBT It’s Fall, Y’all
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Pumpkin Passport Cross Stitch This is my favorite stop on the Passport journey yet, but it’s been slow going with a couple busy weekends in a row.

I always have a pile of books in the “Still Reading” category of my Reading Logs each month, but I’m usually actively reading 2-3 books at a time and some books languish for months before I pick them up again. I haven’t done one of these in a while, but here’s a look at the… Continue reading Reading Right Now
Sam had his wisdom teeth extracted on Friday, so we settled in for a weekend of ice packs and soft food. After the first day, recovery wasn’t so bad. And of course there was plenty of time to play with the new iPhones. Nurse Tali and Cora weren’t much help… they mostly just slept on… Continue reading Meow Monday: Nurse Duty
