Meal PLan 2

Meal Planning 2.0

So I’m HUGE on meal planning. {huge i tell you!} I wrote about it back in 2011 and most of that still rings true, but my methods have tweaked a bit in the last 2 years. I was having a group text conversation with 2 dear (nameless) friends a few weeks ago regarding what to cook for a last minute…

Dining Room

The Dining Room in the Southern House

Here it is! The dining room here in The Southern House. Although it’s our dining room we tend to use it more for school, My Soldier studying, sewing projects, coloring, and setting stuff down and not touching it for weeks. {totally had to move piles of flight school paraphernalia off of the table to take these photos} We do very…

my pegboard window

Let’s get real for a second. My house is rarely clean. Certain areas of my home might be clean at any given moment but rarely is the entire thing clean. Case in point: This was my sewing closet a couple of weeks ago. Sadly this is part of our bedroom. {obviously I missed the Martha Stewart issue about the bedroom…

planning a pcs – packing the luggage

Warning: This Post is Long Very Long But I Am Anxious To Be Done With This Topic and Move Onto Other Items The number of times I have lived out of a suitcase for extended periods of time is a bit ridiculous. It was shockingly commonplace in my life before I got married and long before My Soldier became a…

planning a pcs – the paper trail

We just got back from a whirlwind 4-day weekend in Atlanta. There was an over-abundance of my loud family. It was lovely. Let’s get back to the PCS; shall we? Planning for a PCS is a lot of work. Even more so if you are without your household goods for an extended period of time. Ours was made more complicated…

pattern storage

Huzzah! I finally have a home for my pattern collection. After weeks of trying to figure it out I had a light bulb moment one day last week. After lots of searching with the intent to purchase something to house my patterns I realized I already have a solution in house. {pretty sure nothing makes my soldier happier than more…

preparing to prepare

Hello little blog! My family left this weekend and we hit the ground running trying to get the house back in order. {not to mention the vast effort we’ve put into getting the army brats back in order} Yesterday I finally felt like we were back in the swing of things and then I realized that Thanksgiving is next week!…

organizing my “collection”

I confessed a few weeks ago to having quite the growing collection of patterns. As I am still tackling the storage issue I realized I had an additional problem with all the patterns I have actually sewn from. {the % of patterns that i have sewn from vs the ones that are just conquests that have been won is crazy…

wednesday wanderings

The Task edition! Not much wandering because I’ve been focused on tackling our dreaded closet of books. My Soldier was off yesterday {thanks army!} so we hunkered down during nap time and got 1/4 of the work done. ” Why so little?” you ask. Well my friend Christine pointed out in a comment on the last post that we should…

friday confession

This is really more like a Wednesday Wanderings and Friday Confession 2-for-1 special. The confession is that my home {read anywhere i stay longer than 10-minutes} is naturally super cluttered. It’s less disorganized and more organized chaos, but the chaos is driving me crazy lately. It’s likely due to the fact that there are three other persons in my space…
