    Debt Confession Series | Introduction

    This year, thus far, is proving to be a slightly smoother ride compared to last year.  In January, I set out to accomplish many goals, as one typically does, only to scrap them all after reading an article online that left me with a reality check and a tough question to answer. I’ll spare the heart breaking details, but it was the ending question that made me pause and rethink everything.  The question was simple–Do you have a plan if castastrophe happens in your life? The question was more or less geared to financial circumstances, however, my answer was/is an alarming– NO. My own answer scared me because we were at…

    Baby Crib Blanket Finished

    Baby AJ received this blanket one week late but in my defense, she graced us early. Ha! I was on a tight schedule with this project and worried if I would complete it in time. ¬†Being ear deep in homeschool planning, moving (AGAIN!), and all the other day to day tasks life requires, I had my doubts. ¬†Luckily the pattern was SUPER SIMPLE. ¬†It made it a fast knit. As for my reading, it is a Christmas book I picked up at the Dollar Tree a couple of months ago. It is called: The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap. ¬†It is exactly the book I am needing to read right now.…

    Knitting

    I have the honor to knit a crib blanket in anticipation of my new cousins arrival this October. I’m excited for my favorite cousin (who is more like a sister to me) and her new little bundle.  I’m just bummed I won’t be able to meet her right away. We will have a lot going on around that same time, but hopefully early next year I’ll finally get to visit.   For this blanket, I’m using Purl Soho’s free pattern.  It uses 100% Merino Wool and it is the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with.  Being a newbie knitter, I’m beginning to understand that the quality of yarn truly makes…

    “You have really big boogers in your nose.” | 7 Quick Takes

    As with any other typical night, I laid in bed asleep.  However, this particular evening, I could swear to you that someone was watching me.  You know the feeling. So I opened my eyes and lo and behold, Bubba laid there staring at me.   Without hesitation and before I could utter a word, he says to me, “You have really big boogers in your nose.”   Okay, so it was just a dream.  But it felt so real.  I woke up at that moment in my dream and had to debate if it actually happened.  We are beginning to dig our heels into our new place…again.  In case you missed the…

    Baby Washcloth

    There will not be any fancy words for this post. Just a quick link up with Ginny about what I’m reading and knitting at present.  Knitting: A baby washcloth for my cousin who is expecting this summer. I’m making it up as I go and I can’t even tell you how many cast on stitches there are! I don’t think it matters though. When I finish it, it will do the job it’s intended for.   My reading choice has an interesting story with it, but I’ll save it for another day. The book is called, Thomas A Kempis: The Imitation of Christ and I quite like it so far. …
