I’m usually a positive and polite person. I give “the wave” when someone lets me merge in traffic. I hold the door open for people, and when they don’t say “thanks”, I don’t even slam the door into their backsides. I’m practically a saint. But… This weekend, two people tried to cut in front me [...more]

Post image for Thank you notes

Inspired by Jimmy Fallon. Thank you, large slow cooker. I can make a double-batch of Kathy’s apple butter. Thank you, extra crunchy peanut butter. You go perfectly with the apple butter. Thank you, Goodwill, Salvation Army, and that random consignment shop. I got 4 hoodies for $14 to make octopus costumes. Thanks especially to the [...more]

Post image for Pumpkin patch + Picture Practice

Today’s Picture Practice (with Kelli) prompt: out the window. We love living so close to a farm (10 min) where we’ve gone fruit picking several times this year (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and apples). We enjoyed the pumpkin festival two years ago, so decided to go again this year with friends. What we didn’t expect was [...more]

Post image for Baby and her Bunny {photos}

Baby O (1-yr) used to reach for J’s (4-yr) Teddy whenever Teddy was on the floor. Of course, J would quickly put Teddy out of O’s reach. It was cute to see her try to get Teddy, and adorable that J was so protective of his buddy. Well, after a long year of waiting, Baby [...more]

Post image for Apple picking {photos}

Tidbits on our trip apple picking: >>> First time at Homestead Farms. Spacious. I was glad it didn’t have an entrance fee, and they provided buckets for free (which were returned at checkout). >>> I squawked at Joyce when she said she picked 33 lbs of apples, but then we picked 31 lbs (it wasn’t [...more]

Post image for Picture Practice: building

Happy Monday! I didn’t take any new photos for today’s Picture Practice (with Kelli) prompt: building. Insert sad face. So I’ll just revisit 3 buildings I’ve photographed. First up, this lighthouse on Assateague Island, which we visited Labor Day Weekend. There was a measly 0.25 mile walk to it from the parking lot, and we [...more]

Post image for Tweetviews – book reviews in 140 characters

Over the summer, I saw a link-up called Twitterature. I thought, “Cool, book reviews written for Twitter”. I was disappointed when they were regularly-lengthed reviews. So, after some googling, there is a Twitter feed, @tweet_views, who does book reviews in 140 characters or less. So, here’s my version on the blog on what I’ve been [...more]

Post image for Vacation was ok {photos}

So you’ve ever built-up a place in your head and then once you experience that place, you’re like, “That was disappointing”? Well, ever since we moved to Maryland, our co-workers told us about this magical place (my words, not theirs) where wild ponies run free. It’s called Assateague Island, and it’s a national park. Wouldn’t [...more]

Post image for On life and blogging

Yea yea yea. Yesterday started off so happy. I’m bumming you and myself out with this post, but I assure you, there is a happy ending. Or is it a “beginning”??? It’s been a month since I blogged. The decline in posts started after our kids’ birthdays in July. Then I traveled to Seattle the [...more]

Because I’m happy + Picture Practice

Thumbnail image for Because I’m happy + Picture Practice

Tomorrow I’ll rant blog about why I’ve been missing from the blog lately. You don’t want to hear about that on Monday morning, right? Today’s Picture Practice (with Kelli) prompt, what makes me happy, put a huge smile on my face as I took these photos and wrote this post. And guess what I was [...more]

Instead of (blank) + Android or double stroller advice

by lisacng August 26, 2014

Hey kids, how was everyone’s weekend? It rained all day Saturday, so we had to listen to our 4-yr old (J) ask us every 15 min. when the rain would stop so we could take the “new” stroller out for a spin. I say “new” because we got a double stroller (similar) on Craigslist. We [...more]
