Take It On Tuesday – HANG GLIDING, PEOPLE!

It’s Take It on Tuesday, y’all! HANG GLIDING, people!!! The beginning of October, I went to the Click Retreat, which took place in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I wrote about much of it here. While on that trip I got to experience a most excellent thing… HANG GLIDING. I kind-of feel HANG GLIDING […]

Take It On Tuesday: We’re Grilling Up Some Baby Back Ribs!

Confession: we (my husband and I) have never grilled our own ribs. Well, we have if you count the pre-packaged, pre-seasoned/sauced ribs. And we feel that is the cheater way. Though they are great in a pinch or moment of craving, but there is nothing like rolling up your sleeves and making them all on […]

Take It On Tuesday: The Seattle Gum Wall

Yep. The family and I went to the Gum Wall in Seattle. My parents are in town and we had never taken them there. Heck, we have only been there once before! So we hiked on over to Pike Place Market from the ferry and visited the Gum Wall. When we were there about a […]

Take It On Tuesday: Of Headstands and Headstands

It’s been awhile since the last Take It On Tuesday… I know. So how about headstands and headstands?! But seriously, I have no excuse except for the excuse of all excuses: LIFE. Funny. I think the last Take It On Tuesday was the one about me starting to homeschool. Oh it’s all starting to make […]

Take It On Tuesday – Homeschooling and an interview with le student!

Though I made the formal announcement yesterday, I felt it appropriate to also make a video about this new adventure… taking on homeschooling. But I don’t give tips. Or advice. Nope. I do ask for prayer though… And we are off. We are still in a bit of a holding pattern as I wait for […]

Take It On Tuesday – In which I take on early morning to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic

In case you missed it… I went to Miami. Yep. I even got sunburned. Yup. On my last morning there, since I didn’t have a day of responsibilities, I thought it’d be awesome to rise and shine before the sun did and take on catching the sunrise on the Atlantic Ocean… from South Beach. So […]

It’s time! Time for Part TWO of my Take It On Tuesday! Surviving the Wild (or my own backyard)! I did make it back home. OBVIOUSLY. I could have written/uploaded to YouTube had I died/been kidnapped by honey badgers (or bunnies) in my own back 40. You want to know something funny? It’s more funny […]

Take It On Tuesday! Surviving the Wild (or my own backyard) Part 1

It’s Take It On Tuesday, people! Today I take on MY OWN BACKYARD! If you are familiar with the wilder 2 acres of my property, you would have just felt chills up your spine because – IT’S SCARY. Like, WILDLIFE AND THORNS ALL UP IN YOUR GRILL, SCARY. My friend Jill of Baby Rabies put […]

Take It On Tuesday: The Kids Got Their Flu Shots

I know, I know. The topic of immunizations can be a pretty touchy subject. I am not here to evangelize the flu shot cause. Nope. Do whatcha gotta do, families. Rather, I am here, along with my children, ¬†for those who decide shots are the right choice for them… to give hope to the fearful. […]

Take It On Tuesday: The Kitchen Has Been Painted a Beautiful Shade of BLUE!!!

It is Take It On Tuesday and the kitchen has been painted a beautiful shade of blue! I call it “On the SPot Blue.” I wonder why… It took the better part of the weekend. And we had an unfortunate hiccup with the color (the tinted primer was a shade of blue I loved, but […]
