I took a break for a while, in case you hadn't noticed. I needed a moment to stop and figure out why I was doing this, what I was hoping to gain, what I was trying to portray or prove. I had another miscarriage a few weeks ago, and it felt like everything I was… Continue reading
I'm a stay-at-home mom right now, and my hope is that I'll be able to continue this for the next year as well. In order to do this, my family has had to cut back in certain areas and find cheaper ways of doing things. Here are some pretty easy ways we've decided to save… Continue reading Budget Friendly Ideas
Time for new goals! I'm going to keep some goals that I really enjoyed from the previous year, and I'll also throw in some extras. Don't go more than two weeks without blogging I want to keep this blog up, and when I get busy, I forget to write. Hopefully this year I can continue… Continue reading What I want for 2020
Time to review the past year! Here is my post of goals for 2019. Looking back at the post, I'm proud of the goals I set for myself, and I'm okay with the fact that I didn't meet all the goals I set. To find my year in books, visit my book blog. I kept… Continue reading 2019 in Review
I finished the baby blanket for my little baby! I'm really happy with how it turned out. I used Celeste Young's "Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket" pattern, which was easy to follow and understand. I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn! in White, Tropical Pink, Mango, Yellow, and Limelight. The purple and blue I just used… Continue reading A blanket for my baby

I just used all the leftover and scrap pieces of yarn I had, so there isn't really a rhyme or reason to the color scheme. I just did a simple double crochet all the way through.… Continue reading Another Blanket!
On Tuesday, Miguel and I celebrated three years of marriage. In the grand scheme of things, that doesn't seem like a lot. We've lived a lot more life than that, and we will, Lord willing, live a lot more life. But upon further reflection three years is quite an accomplishment, I think. I made a… Continue reading To Have and to Hold
This is blog post 100! How crazy is that? I started this in August 2018 hoping it would force me to write more frequently and challenge me to finding unique ways of sharing things and finding things to share. I think it's working, at least so far. I was originally going to write 100 things… Continue reading 10 Things I’ve learned in 100 Blog Posts
Guys. I can scratch one thing off my New Year's Resolutions List. I have finished three blankets this year! Maybe I took the easy route because two of them are baby blankets, but I'm okay with that. I started another one that I might finish, and I know I'll be starting a new one when… Continue reading Blanket Number Three!!!
I finished my second blanket of the year! This one I made for my niece, who is just a few months old. It turned out really large, but that's okay because she can use it for a long while! This one was a corner to corner, with alternating random stripes of I Love This Yarn!… Continue reading My Second Blanket
