What’s Your Love Language?

My husband and I were talking tonight about someone I’ve met recently at homeschool co-op and I said that I think her love language is Acts of Service. He had no idea what I was talking about so I pulled out “Dr.Google” and looked it up so I could explain it to him. I read […]

Why We Chose to Homeschool

Where do I start? Homeschooling was something I’d thought about since we found out we were pregnant with Buddy. Life kept changing and I was never “ready” to take the leap, though. Monkey joined school two years ago in Kindergarten and she just kept struggling. Her class had a few special needs kids in it […]

BabyQ 8 Months Old

Last week Q turned 8 months. She’s just getting bigger and bigger. Where did that tiny baby go that I let sleep on my chest for the first month? I already miss infant BabyQ! She has started crawling and getting into everything now. I bought some gates earlier this week and they come today. I’ll […]

Baby Q 6 and 7 Months

I’ve been a slacker mom. I haven’t updated on Q since she was 5 months old. When she turned 6 months I was waiting for her doctor appointment to post so that I could share her recent measurements, but then I forgot about her appointment and she didn’t get in until a few days before […]

Hunted- Dragonlands 2 Book Review #ControlTheDragons

Note: I received an eARC of this book. All opinions are my own. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the author Megg Jensen. I have read her entire Song of Eloh Series and I read her book Shucked first. My favorite series by her, so far, though, is Dragonlands. I love dragon books and […]

Baby Q 5 Months

I can not believe that my baby is closing in on a half year old already! She has SUCH a personality and she’s such a great baby. Are you sick of me saying that month after month? Seriously, though, if every baby were like her, our world’s population would be even bigger! Just look at […]

Summer is for Families {#LittleMercies Book Launch}

Note: This post is sponsored by Harlequin. I received an ARC of the book Little Mercies. All opinions are my own. Next week, June 24, 2014, Heather Gudenkauf is releasing a book called Little Mercies. It is a book about families and finding the Little Mercies in things. When you’re going through a hard time, look […]

Week 2 of Summer Vacation

Let me tell you, I’m looking forward to July. July for me means some breathing time, time to work, a break! We have been going non-stop since the kids got out of school on the 3th. First my husband got to take Buddy to a Cubs game thanks to Score Big. Buddy was so excited […]

Baby Q 4 Months

On Saturday Quinn turned 4 months old. I can’t believe it! I’ve been holding off on the post, though, because she was seeing the doctor today for her 4 month check up and I wanted to share her stats. She’s still a little peanut! Remember all the bragging I’ve done about how she sleeps through […]

Weight Loss Wednesday Week 1

So I still have no idea what I’m planning to do to help out on this journey. I’ve definitely been drinking a LOT more water this past week and I think that may have been my saving grace. Today when I weighted myself, I was 213; last week I was 212.3, so I had a […]

PNC Bank is full of Lies and Fees

Back in December I decided it was finally time to open a business account for Frosted Fingers. My husband had a few accounts at PNC Bank and told me they had free business checking so I figured I’d go there to open my account. When I first walked in I told the lady that I was […]

Weight Loss Wednesdays

I’ve made the decision. It’s time for me to take the leap and get this weight off. A few weeks after having Baby Q I was almost to my pre-pregnancy weight, but just like always I rebound while breast feeding. Before having Q I was over 230 lbs. I got down to 207, which was 5 […]

Books I Read Last Month {April}

Last month I must have gotten some good reading time in. In March I only read 7 books, but in April I read 11. That brings my total up to 41 books read so far in 2014. I read for pleasure. If you give me a book to learn, I fall asleep and it’ll take […]

Baby Q 3 Months

Can not believe it’s been 3 months since I had my baby girl. It really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long already. I can’t say enough how blessed I am with her. She sleeps through the night almost every night of the week. She naps well through the day so I can get work […]

#40BagsIn40Days Challenge Wrapup

Well, I did it! I finished the challenge. I don’t think I got rid of 40 bags of garbage altogether, but I got rid of a lot. I have so much more still to go. Last week I told you I wanted to hit 4 spots in my house: the boys’ room, girls’ room, book […]
