It’s Friday again. I’m not sure how that happened. Once the weather starts getting nice the days just start flying by.
Baseball season has officially started. In true little league fashion, James’s team is 3 games in and still doesn’t have uniforms. Mariyah hasn’t attended a game yet, but she does look pretty cute in her uniform. That 100 watt smile she’s flashing below? I had the audacity to suggest she tuck her pants into her socks. 7 going on 17 with that sass.
Favorite Book: I probably shouldn’t say favorite just yet since I’m only 2 chapters in, but I have been reading Redeployment by Phil Klay. Not sure if I’m sold on it yet, but I am very interested to see where this book is going…
Guest posters! One of the most common email requests that I get is from people wondering if they can guest post. I love having guest posters. I’m trying to come up with some better parameters for what I think works for my blog. But I would LOVE to have anyone who is interested write a guest post about some unique aspect of their life. Adoption stuff, parenting a child who is differently abled, being a single mom, going through fertility treatments, anything. We all have something. I’m not looking for facts so much as your personal experience. Similar to what my friend Nicole wrote about her struggle with infertility. It can be long or short, funny or serious. Just a bit about your life. If you are interested send me an email nobohnsaboutit at gmail or use the contact page.
Favorite Project: You guys know I am far from being a crafty mom. We all have our strengths in life and I just tend to be better at appreciating other people’s crafts rather then making them myself. Well I decided to give crafting a try for a guest post on my friend Meghan’s blog and my project actually worked (which gives you an idea of how simple it is)! Check out this Mother’s Day Handprint Keepsake if you are looking for an easy gift idea.
Favorite Picture: The other night we were watching a movie and Violet climbed on the couch for the first time by herself. Needless to say she was pretty proud. She then took a seat next to “bubby” as she likes to call James, and started stealing his popcorn! He didn’t notice at first because he was so into the movie and because Violet was being so sneaky. She was slowly and quietly putting her hand into the bucket, then quickly popping a piece into her mouth. If she noticed anyone looking at her she would freeze. It really made us smile to watch. Eventually James caught on, but of course he didn’t mind a bit. He loves sharing with this little lady.
