Morning Sickness Remedies

My e-friend Lindsey is a doula in Florida (come to Michigan! Be my birth person!) and is here to chat about morning sickness because I kid you not: the terrible feeling of feeling terrible non-stop is the hardest part of pregnancy for me. Not the being huge or the swollen feet or even the actual labor and delivery. No. It's the anticipation of feeling like death gently warmed over and then that anticipation becoming reality that puts the bowling ball of fear right there in my stomach. So this book of hers- this book matters to me. And Lindsey is gonna do the talking! Yay!

Ready? Let's go.

Learning Notes vol. 2

What can I say?  My kids are weird.

Earlier this evening Charlie (almost 4 months old) helped Paul (7) practice his spelling.  Or reading.  Something word related.  I'll let you decide what to call it, m'kay?  The game goes like this:

I Tracked Every Purchase for a Year and Here's What I Have to Say About That (7qt)

A little over a year ago, we finally decided we were sick of only sorta kinda knowing how we were spending our money.  With a house full of kids and a new(er)-house pipe dream on the horizon, I decided we were finally going to make a budget and stick to our budget.  But guess what?  I couldn't.  And I'll tell you why.  Because...

Jamberry Nail Wraps: giveaway

Welcome friends, both new and old!  It's been really moving to be a part of the enthusiastic response to yesterday's post.  Incredible.  God is so smart and good.  So, welcome back to....a product review and giveaway?  Well, I wouldn't want you to get too accustomed to me being full of insight and smartness, would I?  Because truly those moments are few and far between.  Most of the time I'm just here doing my renovating/homeschooling/pseudo girly mom thang and I'm super grateful that y'all like to hang out and do all of that with me.

So let's get to it!

All In

We have a new pastor. He's the great-grand-nephew-something of a previous pastor at our parish, a pastor we never knew because we just got here 4.2 years ago, but he was definitely much beloved and where am I going with this?

Oh, here's where I'm going.  Our new pastor is really young (younger than ME young!  And I'm...what?  24 or something?  So, wow.  Young.) and he has the same last name and is related to that previous pastor and I sort of...

Ugh.  I bet someone is going to tell him this.  Or he's going to read it himself.  (I saw him checking his iphone right before Mass yesterday.  Then he stealth-like dropped it into the hidden pocket in his ankle length cassock, suited up in his ordinary-time green vestments and processified right in.  Homey ain't afraid of the interwebz.).  But I'll press on.  Because I'm foolish.

Camo overload, boots, cutes (7qt)

You know, the thing about doing all your own blog "workin'" is that sometimes all your social sharing buttons disappear from your right sidebar and are replaced by a 404 error message and you have no idea what happened nor how to fix it.  Viva 2 a.m. watching youtube tutorials!

(2)
What you really want isn't information on the inner workings of blog land, is it? No.  You're here for the bebe.

Before I Had a Seven Year Old

Remember a few months ago when I demanded you start reading Kate Rhodes' blog?  Well, in case you forgot to click her link or didn't add her to your bloglovin' roll, here's another chance.  I love Kate.  I don't know how to explain it.  She just....makes me feel like my heart has an extra layer of frosting on it or something.

Awkward pause.
