Pajamas and things

Pajamas and things

I had a successful weekend of freelance work. How do I know it was successful?

Last night I went to change into my pajamas…and realized I had never changed out of them.


In between the not-showering and the not-wearing-real-clothes, I found a bunch of things to share with you all this morning.

1. His & Hers Pillowcases

I didn’t “find” this one so much as I made this one, but I really liked how it turned out. And don’t be afraid of the sewing. The fact that I completed it sans-injury should inspire all sorts of confidence in your … Continue reading

What I Love : February

What I Love : February

It’s that time again! Here’s what I’m loving in February:

Welcome to Paris // This blog post will dramatically change the way you think about what matters and how to spend your time accordingly. All-time favorite from Seth Godin.

The Road That Changed Everything // Phenomenal video from charity: water.

Romero’s Prayer // Just a snippet from this stunning prayer: “We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, … Continue reading

Christmas Videos and Unlikely Touchdowns

Christmas Videos and Unlikely Touchdowns

Below is our family Christmas video.

It looks shockingly similar to last year’s Christmas video, mostly because we are creatures of habit around here. We have breakfast, give presents, watch Christmas movies, make a big lunch/dinner, and watch more Christmas movies. It’s a finely tuned system in which we laugh/eat/laugh again/eat again, and the whole sequence takes place in comfy clothes by the fireside. So it’s really no wonder why we don’t change anything.

One more Christmas item checked off the list!

In other news, the Packers won a win-and-you’re-in game yesterday against the division rival Bears. This was … Continue reading

Non-News Flash : A Christmas Bucket List Update

Non-News Flash : A Christmas Bucket List Update

Things that have happened:

1. I (re)made fudge!


The first time was a fail. Too thick, and terrible impulse decision making (don’t put whole caramels in fudge). The second time was better, but I overcompensated. The fudge wasn’t quite thick enough to set all the way and the caramel sauce I made was a little too thin. But really, we’re talking about a mixture of sugar and chocolate and sugar. There is no bad in that.

2. I took real pictures!

3. I sent Christmas cards!

I have to tell you that Red Stamp saved me from sending out … Continue reading

What I Love : December

What I Love : December

Albino Reindeer

It used to be called the Inspired list. Now it lives on another page called What I Love. And I was going to keep it tucked away over there…but I love so many things too much to keep it hidden!

Here’s December’s roundup:

The Gift of Healing: One of the most special gifts you can give!

Dara Maclean: I know we already talked about this, but I’ve probably listened to the CD about a thousand times since then so it bears repeating. If you want music that will speak straight to your heart, you need … Continue reading
