Our 2014 Homeschool Curriculum

It’s the last day of September. When did that happen? Well since we’re finishing our second full month of school I figured now would be a great time to talk about our 2014-2015 homeschool curriculum. This year I have both My Helper who is in 2nd grade and The Cadet who is in 1st-ish grade. The Cadet is in 1st-ish…

Essential Oils and Why I Use Them

I’m not sure why it always takes me by surprise, but every time I find myself falling in love with a hippie-tree-hugger product I tend to be shocked. Such was the case with essential oils. Oh boy I love these tiny overpriced little bottles. And you probably should too. Here’s the back story. While we were packing out at Ft.…

My Favorite Books – The Classics

Happiest of Fridays to you all. I’m currently nursing the world’s worst head cold. My super giving Soldier blessed me with this bad boy…and everyone else in the house. So I will be cuddled up with a book till the sinus pressure related ringing leaves my ears. Since my Facebook feed is blowing up with people listing their 10 most…

Yielding My Fears

That Soldier of mine graduate flight school 4 months ago. Earned his wings and such. And then came blog silence.

But gee wiz am I excited about this one. Let me introduce you to Deeply Rooted Magazine.…

I Bought a Book and a Mannequin

Hello friends! I’m currently smack in the middle of my less-than-Pinterest-worthy couch watching the last 2 runs of women’s luge. {i know nothing about luging but the olympics bring out the mediocre sports fan in me} While watching a sport I know nothing about I am actively planning our big trip to Disney World next week, which I am giddy…

Wednesday Wanderings

Happy Wednesday citizens of the blogosphere! I just realized it’s February. {am i the only one who stumbles from month to month and only realizes the transition a week in?} It’s February, The Peanut turned 19 months today, and I haven’t washed my hair in 3 days. But my taxes are done which surely counts for something. We’re gearing up…
