Eye Candy


This is what happens when you have an almost three year old who you put down for a nap in your room where you forgot that you kept your mascara.

Sometimes I feel like such a rookie of a mom.


This is what happens when you’re giving Spencer a bath and you tell Meg she can take a bath too, assuming she will get in the EMPTY side of the sink and you leave and come back to this. 

And then she complains that she is squishy and cold.


And this is what you get when you have some extra pear bins, some ducks that have been kicked out of the kitchen and a creative, handy husband.  Who is also probably cursing you and your ‘hobbies’ under his breath for two days while he puts this together.


With the weather finally turning nice we have been working our white little bums off outside in the yard.

I just bought 40 golden raspberry canes off a guy on craigslist.  They’re huge.  If that doesn’t make you want to come and visit, I don’t know what will.


P.S.  Thanks to Stuff and Nonsense for hosting a giveaway that I actually won.  It feels really good to leave the ranks for those who ‘never win anything’.


  1. We all feel like rookies occasionally...

    P.S. I too would like to leave the ranks of those who "never win anything." Hint, hint...

  2. Oh Meg...maybe Bryce will have to build her a room with the ducks. :)

  3. I think we have all had our mascara moments. And our sharpie/marker to the face moments. Also, the kid elf/sister haircuts. The key is to remember to get your camera. By the time you find it, you are usually much calmer.

  4. Hi There - you won the Blessings Unlimited Grace & Gratitude Pitcher from Stuff and Nonsense and I have been awaiting your address so I can send you your gift. If you would like to send Alison your address, then I will be able to send it to you. It is really nice and I think you will like it.


You're a valued reader, thanks for your comments, they help keep me sane....
