Words for the day.


1. New for 2013 I started writing one thing that happened during the day. It could be simple, funny, a hard thing, blessing whatever. Just one thing that stands out to me. My goal is to keep this up all year long then come 2014 I will go back to the January 1 card and start over. I think it will be fun to go back and remember the different things that happened on that day. Who knows if I am really on the ball, over the year the cards will be full of all kinds of things! When I am old and grey (or grey-er) the kids will one day look over the cards and get a snapshot of our days long ago. Haha…that just all sounds kind of funny but it could be cool so I’m going with it.

Some new skateboard decor for my skater boy.

2. Did a little skateboarding decorating in Mase’s room last week. The old skateboards were give to me by the local skate shop and BOOM we made two shelves and a coat rack. Love it. Happy boy and happy mom because his room finally has some sort of direction and style. I’m sure I was the only bothered by the lack of decor but it’s all good now!


3. I eye spied in my neighbors yard some pallets the other day. You know how I love myself some pallets! So like any normal, upstanding citizen I hopped the fence and helped myself. Haha, I kid. I kid. I asked first then I hopped the fence and picked out 3 pallets: 1 big one and 2 small ones. I have never seen “baby” pallets! They are too cute! I have some ideas rolling around in my head so you’ll just have to wait and see!

A "sleepover" with a friend minus the sleeping part. Dinner, play, jammies and a movie then home to sleep in your own bed:)

4. You may remember this post where I told you were implementing Lego jars for behavior. Much to my surprise we have stuck with it and even better we have seen a change in the kids behavior. They are highly motivated by Legos, I tell you! The girls recently filled their jars for the first time, Mase is getting close. For Kaia’s reward she chose to have a friend over for dinner and movie in their jammies. Theia chose ice cream with Daddy. In the last minute she begged for Kaia to come along. I guess when you’re a twin you get to enjoy double rewards.

Such lovely ladies I have accompanying me today.

5. Really this picture says it all. Life with my girls is always an adventure.

Have a one of a kind weekend friends! Don’t miss out, there are good things to come of it I’m sure!

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. Okay. PLEASE tell me you have put the skateboard decor on pinterest. That is unreal! We have been doing a “simple living journal” where we write down 1 or more things we are doing each day to help simplify our lives. And pic of the girls in their hats?! Classic :)

  2. I love the idea of writing down one thing that happens during the day! I might try that…so glad I found your blog.

  3. Dare I say I have yet to post ONE of my own things on pinterest. Maybe this will be the one!
