Lesson Learned

Alright, so obviously committing to do a photo a day every day for a year, might not have been my best idea yet! Considering I have since fallen of the blogging bandwagon altogether!  Oops! So, lesson learned…moving on.  That was obviously too steep a commitment for this busy wife/mama/homemaker/homeschoooler/etc/etc! So, on with blogging!  🙂

Moving Break is Over!

Well, we are all moved into our new home, and LOVING it!!  I am now finally ready to be officially back to blogging!  Since moving I have been working on unpacking and settling in.   After taking a 6 week break from school, we started some light school back up 2 weeks ago, and will do that through the middle of August – at which time we will take another 3-4 week break, before starting up our official new school year.  {Read More}

A Long Weekned

Just wanted to quickly post to say that I will be away from blogging for a few days.   Jared has a 4 day weekend, so we will be enjoying spending some time with him! I did not do a friday family foto post today because we spent the day attending (& Jared volunteering) the Special Olympics.   We had a wonderful time and were both so emotionally touched by our day there.    I will share pictures sometime next week! Until {Read More}

Hi! Remember me?

Yes, I know, my blogging has been basically non-existent for the past year or so 🙁 But here I go, jumping back in again!  We’ll see if I can be a little more consistent with it.   (And I am probably just talking to myself right now, but that is ok too!)  I might have also lost a lot of you when I let my domain name boastinginmyweakness.com expire in April.  So, just another reminder, that my address has reverted back {Read More}

What’s New

Life is busy as usual.  Still trucking along in our homeschool year.  Working on being better organized in my home.  Decorating lots of cakes.  Having fun playing with my new DSLR camera.  Making tutus.  House hunting.  On top of all of my normal wife, mom, home duties….you know, just trying to keep those plates spinning!! Thought I better check in on my blog!  I would really like to get back to blogging more!  I miss it! Alright, it’s late…I feel {Read More}


Yes, that is what I have done to you (dear blog readers – if there are any of you left out there!) and to this blog!!  I am not even going to try to explain why I havent been around…lets just say, sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging & and blogging is far from the top of my to-do list!!! 🙂 I did want to let you know that I started another blog!  I know, crazy, huh?!  {Read More}

A Busy Summer

Yes, this summer has been busy…can you relate?  I am sure you can!!  So, when life is busy, blogging kind of falls off my to-do list.  Not necessarily because I don’t have time, because honestly I could make the time for it!  I keep up with facebook, but as for my blog, I write when I feel up to it! 😛 We have had a great summer though!  And can you believe?  This will be our last week of summer {Read More}

Busy Weekend

   Just thought I would pop in quickly.  As you can see, I missed my Monday post yesterday!  We had a busy 3-day weekend, filled with switching bedrooms, painting, cleaning carpets, doing away with the school room, and giving the kids seperate bedrooms.  It is not complete, but we finished the majority of it!  I will post some pictures once it is all complete!!  I will be busy this week trying to finish it up…dont know if I will be {Read More}

I Need Your Help!

   I have been working on some rennovations in my etsy store!  I took a long break from my store due to a recent move and other things, and am finally getting it back up and running!     I have started a new blog for my etsy store called Zoe’s Couture Boutique where I will be posting about what is new in my store, and other crafty info!!     Anyway, here is where I need your help!  I have created a {Read More}

Oh My Poor, Neglected Blog!

    Wow!  I have technically been on my “bloggy break” for about 2 1/2 months now, with a couple of quick pop-ins here and there.  That is just crazy, and definitlely the longest break I have ever taken from blogging since I began blogging 2 1/2 years ago!    As you probably already know, my reasons for the break were that we were moving, were busy with the holidays, and I was exhausted from pregnancy, all at the same time!   {Read More}

It’s been a while…

…and it will be a little while longer…(before I come back from my break that is)!    We are super busy this week packing up our house for a move on Saturday!  So after Friday, I wont be around for a little while until we have internet up and going again at our new place.    Just to give a quick little baby update…I am now a little over 10 weeks along and things seem to be going great with {Read More}

I Interrupt This Bloggy Break…

…to say Merry Christmas!  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!  May your focus be on the true reason for celebrating Christmas, the birth of our Savior, and may you experience His love in a mighty way! (photos by my friend Erica)   And now,  let me leave you with a short John Piper video, (that I just found over at desiringgod.org) to ponder this Christmas!  It is called, Bad News: Santa is Coming!

Big Announcement & Bloggy Break

I have been quiet lately…again!  I decided I will go ahead and post that I will take an “official” break from blogging until after the holidays!  I am just tired, and busy, and don’t have the energy for it right now amidst all of the other things going on in my life (getting ready for Christmas, taking care of home and family, homeschooling, packing my house to move in a month….just to name a few!) I also would like to {Read More}

A Much Needed Update

Ok, so you might or might not have noticed that I have been pretty quiet around here lately.  I haven’t posted a Menu Plan or Monday Meanderings post in I-don’t-know-how-long!  I have sporadically posted some Wordless Wednesday posts, with a few other posts stuck in here and there.  But overall, I’ve been pretty quiet! I guess there are a couple reasons for this.  One is busyness, and trying to focus more of my time and attention on my family.  I {Read More}

My Little Sister Has Joined Us in Bloggyland!

   Yay!  I am so glad she decided to take the leap!!  Her 4-year old daughter (my niece) Sierra is one of the funniest kids ever!!  My sister (Lara) is always telling me all of these funny stories of Sierra’s hilarious converstaions and comments.  I told her she needs to keep track of these things and share them with the rest of us!  So, she has now created a new blog!    Won’t you stop by, have a laugh, say {Read More}
