Plugged Back In

I'm back. Sorry I was gone so long. Walker was on spring break last week and I just wanted to check out for a while completely. It's kinda nice to do that once in a while. Recently, I feel like my writing and topics were getting a bit stale. Maybe I'm trying too hard, maybe life is just none too exciting to write about. Either way, I'm back.

We had a great time on spring break, hanging out around here for the first part of the week, then we headed to the beach to spend several days with my in-laws.

Walker went back to school yesterday, and after being with him for basically ever moment for the last eight days, I missed my little guy. He was glad to get back to his friends and away from all of the adults, but he did give me a great big hug last night when I came home from work. He missed me too. I will say that Lucy was certainly ready for everyone to get out of the house and give her full reign.

My best friend Daria's due date is today, and still no baby! I can't wait for the little cutie to arrive and I know she can't either! I'd like to ask everyone to pray for Daria and the baby, also Daria's mother, who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer, and her grandmother, who is in the hospital for kidney failure. I'm certain that the joy of a snuggly, cute little baby girl will brighten things for all of her family. If she's anything like Walker, we'll be waiting two more weeks. If she's like her mother, she'll make her grand entrance pretty soon, just a little - fashionably - late.


  1. I adore Spring Break. Such a great chance to spend time with the people you Love most. It would be so nice if we had more weeks like this, right?

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
