Ahh! This is my first adult coloring book, and I was so excited to receive it. I always enjoyed coloring as a child, but haven't gotten a chance to do so recently. Needing to write a review gave me an extra excuse to sit down and work on a page, and it was indeed very … Continue reading Review – Wonderland (an adult coloring book by Amily Shen)

Willie the Walrus is very bored. As he watches TV, wishing he got to go out and do something fun, he sees a story about a mean old whale terrorizing a town. He imagines himself as the sheriff and saves the townspeople. I loved the animals used in the story because they are not as … Continue reading Book Review – Willie Out West
This children's book from WestBow Press is about a behemoth named Dippy and a little boy named Job. The idea comes roughly from the book of Job, but does not follow the Bible verses. The story of Noah is also told, but otherwise there isn't really a biblical message. I found the book hard to … Continue reading Book Review – The Behemoth Dinosaur in the Land of Uz by Maryluz Guerrera Salas
I decided a couple weeks ago that we needed to make a zoo trip before school lets out, and I made the mistake of mentioning it ahead of time to my youngest brother who made sure I didn't forget to pick a day. We finally had a nice day yesterday with no rain, so off … Continue reading A Day at the Zoo
Since it was such a nice day, we decided to hit a couple of library book sales and then came home and played with some ice cubes. I have discovered that while Emmy usually hates cold food, she loves ice cubes. She took one from my glass the other day and ran off with it. … Continue reading Happy Earth Day!
Went to the Missouri Botanical Garden on Saturday! It was my first time going as well as Emmy's. The decorations still up from their Lantern Festival were interesting. And two pictures in, here's where the picture of my husband's face would be if my phone hadn't ate it. He asked if I was going to … Continue reading Saturday in StL!
Reading to babies is supposed to be good, get them to associate books with loving and cuddling and all that. Personally, I love reading, but I thought there is no way this wiggly little girl would sit still for that. Turns out she does. And she sat looking at the pictures all content and happy … Continue reading 3 Months Old: Reading Time!
I can't believe I haven't posted any pictures of Baby Girl yet! Here's the last three months, in short. (You bet your behind this is only a small percentage of the pictures I've taken) The first picture I took after she was all cleaned up. Been in love with her from her first cry. My … Continue reading Meet Emerald Rose!
So I bought this lot of pre-loved cloth diapers from a woman in town last week. We decided we are going to use cloth diapers for Baby because it'll be cheaper than buying disposables every month. And I mean come on, little colorful baby bottoms are adorable. To be sure the dipes are as clean … Continue reading First Fluff!
Or rather, no honeymoon and a real baby. So I got married to this wonderful man August 2, 2014. And because he is oh so ornery, he broke not just one ribbon at our shower and reception, but five. FIVE. He thought he was funny, y'know. But you see, there's a wee bit of a … Continue reading Honeymoon, Baby!
Merry Christmas, to those who LOVE Christmas, and to those who can't stand it. To the ones who dread spending time with family because of the people who will be there, and to those who dread the time because of the people who are gone. To the party people and to the ones with social … Continue reading Merry Christmas
