    Pancakes

    These beauties came out of pure luck mixed with a little exhaustion.  I know, I know.  Not the story you thought would be behind this delightful looking stack of goodness. Haha. 😉 Last night was a long one that consisted of two sick babies sleeping in our bed and one diaper leak resulting in: outfit change, diaper change, sheet clean up.   At 3 in the morning.   By the time all four of us nestled back into bed and my husband and sweet babies dozed into a soft slumber, I laid there wiiide awake.   But of course, right? I tossed, I turned, and I counted sheep, but nothing worked.  Dumb insomnia.  …

    We Made It

    After a three day drive with three kids, a moving truck, and little sleep, we made it to North Carolina.   I could sugar coat for you on how awesome it is to drive for three days with three kids, two of which are babies for 7 hours each day, but I won’t. I won’t say anything bad either. But I will say that I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever. Ever! Do it again. That is probably a lie, but I stand by it for the moment. hahaha. 🙂 But any way, I will write about the road trip experience some…

    Gobble, Gobble 2012

    We just moved to North Carolina–where we know absolutely no one–less than one week ago.  To say that we were unprepared for the holiday is a slight understatement.  Sure we had the meat, but that was about it.  We did all the shopping the day before and the dishes were made the day of, except the pie.   But even though this holiday was rushed and decorated with unpacked boxes, we made it a pretty good one.  We celebrated with big thanks to the big guy (God) for all of our blessings, (which was a long list) and then stuffed our faces with old fashioned thanksgiving staples: Ham, stuffing, pie, rolls,…

    30 Days of Gratitude: Day 4-11

    It is hard for me to make an entire post everyday for the next thirty days, so I’m going to aim the rest of A Blossoming Homestead’s 30 Days of Gratitude to rolling a week’s worth of thanks and blessings into one post.   This will save me some time, since our lives are a bit crazy for the next month.  Which I promise to spill all details sometime during December-January. Day 4:  Today I am most thankful for my baby girl.  Today she spoke her first word, “Mama.”  Awww…her voice sounds beautiful.   Day 5:  Today I am thankful for the beautiful spring weather we’ve had recently here in Texas.   **…

    Day 2 & 3 of Gratitude

    I’m already off to a bad start keeping up with the 30 Days Of Gratitude.  I have good reasons though.  Trying to pack up a house with three kids (one of which is a baby and another is a toddler) and a husband working constant overtime to ensure we have plenty of money to move on…well…it’s the recipe for many crazy days. So I’m lumping up two days of gratitude on this post. Friday was my 31st birthday, and I’m very thankful for being able to celebrate another year!!  And today, I’m thankful for the little things in life: good food, good friends and family, good spirits, a roof over…
