April 2017 Goals

In trying to keep up with my 101 list, I’ve gone ahead and starting making my goal lists for the next 6 months and hoping (crossing my fingers) that it will hold me more accountable than in the past. I picked a couple easy ones to start off with and then hoping to go from…

Reading The Magic of Motherhood by the writers over at Coffee & Crumbs. It’s so good! I’m not even done it, but I highly recommend any Mama out there to get a copy! Watching The Iron Fist on Netflix. I’m just getting into it, but it’s proving to be a good one! Cooking some more…

Watching Planet Earth on Netflix with the girls’. Trying Yoga out for the first time and loving that it helps me slow down and relax. Knitting the Dr. Strange square for my Geek-Along blanket. Doing some purging this week. I completely cleaned out the Play Room to eventually turn it into the little guy’s room…

Day in the Life – March 21, 2017

Welcome to my Day in the Life for March! Today was a pretty easy day to document and I even made sure to use my big DSLR camera a bit more today to prepare for Week in the Life that Ali is doing in April. A couple things to note: 1) I really need to…

101 in 1001

Hi there! I’m starting a new goal-setting project called the 101 in 1001. Basically, you set 101 goals/things to do in 1001 days, which is about 1 goal every 10 days. I like this project due to the fact that I can set long-term and short-term goals and aim to have them done instead of…

Currently 9/52

Reading The Orphan Train, along with daily reading to Violet for her School Home Reading Program. Trying to organize all my Pinterest boards. I’ve gone through almost all of them, save for the. If board of food that I have to go through. But it’s nice seeing it all tidied up with stuff that I’ll…

Hello Baby #3!

So I guess I better fill in on a BIG THING that has happened in the last couple months. Hello Baby #3!!! Yup, we’re expecting another little one to join us in late June/early July. We found out in November (the same day we bought the van, lol), but had to keep it a secret…

Day in the Life – February 2017

Around Here, I have 2 completely different kids when it comes to waking up. Dominique is already bouncing and asking for food at 6am (you’d think that I don’t ever feed that kid!) and Violet who prefers to sleep in and have a slow start to the day. Around Here, it’s coffee with a big…

Currently 2017: 7/52

Reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I finished The Kitchen House and The Help within a week, so I needed a something that wasn’t so history-ish heavy. Playing Super Mario 3D Land on my 2DS. Violet really wants me to save Princess Peach, so I try to play a bit every night before she…

Currently 2017 6/52

Reading The Kitchen House. Just finished it and loved it. Watching Toy Story 2 quite a bit. It’s Dominique’s favourite movie and the only one she really requests on her own. Cooking not a lot lately. Keith’s trying a different diet, which means that he can’t eat a lot of what we’re eating right now….

Currently 5/52

Playing Minecraft with Violet on the PS3. I’m really impressed with her problem solving and her hand-eye coordination is getting much better! Watching Chef’s Table on Netflix. So. Much. Yummy. Food.  Knitting the Gambit square for the 2017 Geek-Along Blanket. Going out with some friends this evening and letting the kids play like crazy. Loving…

Day in the Life – January 30, 2017

One of my Memory Keeping goals this year was to pick one day a month and document a Day in the Life for the entire year. I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately with my Memory Keeping and wanted to shake things up a bit, as well as find the magic in it again….
