    Country Boy Fire Pit

    An Easy Country Boy Fire Pit  I told Bubba last week that I wanted to make a fire pit so that we could roast dawgs & make s’mores.  Yum. 😉  Turns out I have a fantastic husband, who not only agreed with me but also went outside in a 100 degree heat to build us one.   I call it, Country Boy Fire Pit, because we made it with things we all ready had around the house, making this puppy absolutely FREE! (That is my favorite word)   Also, just so you know, this pit wasn’t built on a professional level.  We built it on…let’s say…a camping level.  Hee Hee.  Any hoo,…

    It’s The Little Things…

    I’m just going to jump right in here… I have a shoe box wrapped in paper whose sole purpose (other than shoes) has been a catchall for all of my random things over the years that hold some sort of past memory.  You know the one.   The one that held matchbooks from your favorite concert, or those crazy pictures that only you and the person you were with will ever see the light of day? Well, a few days ago, I came across my long lost box…packed in another box…for probably the last six years. While rummaging through through it, laughing at this and that, I came across something that…

    Rori’s Dresser

    Just a few short months ago, while still pregnant with Rori, I stumbled across an old dresser shoved deep into a shed. I saw the potential immediately and told my busy husband to pull it out for me.  He told me, “No way.”  We went back and forth on it for a couple of days, and despite my “it’ll be so pretty after I fix it up” speech, he still didn’t want to touch it because according to him it was beyond repair. I stood my ground and he gave in and dug it out of this crowded, spider trapped, shed and took it to the shop where I was…

    Rori At Two Months

    Rori had her two month check-up this afternoon and it looks like she is doing great!   Her weight is now 9lbs 8oz (25%) & 22 3/4″ long (55%).   She is still sleeping pretty good, only waking up anywhere from once to twice per night and she is eating between 4 and 5 ounce bottles at each feeding.  She finally fits into 0-3 month clothes (although a little loose) and wears a size 1 diaper. Overall, she is my best baby yet.  She is laughing, finding her voice (she is cooing like crazy) and loves to play and interact with people.  She is staying awake longer during the day and…

    A Lady’s Spilled Purse

    So the other day, the hubs and I took a quick trip to a packed Sam’s Club with the kiddos when the unthinkable happens…Scout took my purse and flung it out of the cart. I watched in slow motion as it hit the floor, spilling its entire contents. AND, since my wonderful husband forgot to zip my wallet back up when he dug around in it for a couple of dollars earlier, every bit of loose change scattered in every direction, making every bystander stop in their tracks and stare at me, the ground, the laughing toddler and the nervous husband.  One mom even held her kids back until Bubba…
