Mr. Rad is here!

Mr. Rad sporting the onesie I made him! He’s here! He’s here! Baby Rad has arrived. Rad Eric was born on April 18th weighing 8lbs 1oz. The birth was easy compared to Gigi’s, but we did have to stay at the hospital for some extra days because Rad was “in distress” which basically meant he …

Only Kindness Matters (a love letter)

you can download this here Yes I’m quoting Jewel. I don’t even feel stupid about it! I have been thinking about a few things in my pathetic condition the last few days. And I hope it’s ok if I get sentimental and share them with you. Remember, I’m mostly likely having a baby tomorrow and …

A few good (non-working) fireplaces

So, we have a fireplace we can’t use. Gigi and I are both super upset about it. I kind of want to paint it white, but Eric says NO WAY! Which I get. It does make me cringe to paint over the 1930’s original brick. But then again the brick looks all dirty and crap …

DIY Mounted Animal Masks

Haha. This wall is for my lil man’s nursery! But Gigi always keeps me company while I’m working in there. I’ve been seriously crushing on plastic animal masks for a while. I stayed up late one night researching all the different kinds and places to buy them. I love the ones I got, even though …

Blueberry Breakfast Strata

Twice a year us mormons, you know, of the LDS church watch General Conference on television. There are two 2-hour conferences on Saturday and two on Sunday. Which basically means we listen to the leaders of the church give thoughts while we hang out in our jammies. To keep us nourished during the morning session …

I used to be cooler: The origin of Sprinkles

This post is part of a series called: “I used to be cooler.” My blog used to consist entirely of essays. I’m sure many of you have not seen them, and I’d like to start sharing some of them again. Some are funny (or at least I think so) and some are “thoughtful.” For the …
