A Little Overwhelmed this Week

12601160474_9d2e248f21

We’z crazy, y’all. In my house, there’s never a dull moment. It’s a good thing you all can keep yourselves entertained when the silence is too much around here on my blog. I tend to take on more than I can handle. I’m learning to say no more, I promise. I’ve been reading “Say Goodbye […]

My Healthy Living Wake-Up Call – This Week in the ICU

10212406914_215cb31683

I spent about 24 hours of this week with my mom in the ICU instead of meeting her for lunch somewhere during both of our busy weeks. Last night was my first night of full sleep since getting a call Tuesday that she was in critical condition. Tuesday, I wasn’t sure if she would make […]

Chocolate Compromise Shake

We love our sweet things around the bee hive… chocolate, ice cream, cookies, … did I mention chocolate? So there’s really no way to completely avoid these, even when we “diet” a little. In no way do I want my kids to think we are dieting, anyway – even if we are. I want them […]

Are you ever stumped on what to make for lunch for your homeschool or preschool kids?

  I’m over at the Homeschool Post today, sharing a tiny bit about our trip to the Waco Zoo last month, and posting their link-up for field trips for the month of April. Each month you can link one or two field trips there and help spread your ideas on the fun and educational places […]

A Little Viking Head Injury

My life is crazy with three boys and a girl… two teens and two tots… homeschooling and homemaking… cooking gourmet meals on a budget. This week was no different. On the heels of my last two event photography gigs: Blissdom and Capitol Days, Easter, and the full swing back from Spring Break… we didn’t need […]

Fed Up 2 Fit: Week 10 Update and 4 Things On My Diet

8543331614_440e7e2467

In the spirit of “keepin’ it real” here at Sprittibee’s blog… I will admit to not tackling the first 7 days of the 17 Day Diet at 100% commitment level. We have had people visit, dinners out, and distractions – which all lead to cave-ins. BUT. I have been good enough to make some really […]
