Life Happens: A Short Break

I have so many plans for Life After Laundry that I am very excited to share with you. I have come away from Online BlogCon with new inspiration and direction for my blog. I was anxious to start putting the practices in motion when… Life interrupted those plans! There has been a lot going on in our […]

Online BlogCon: Unexpected Friendships

As some of you may know, this week I have been attending Online BlogCon. I don’t think there are enough words to express how much I have enjoyed and learned from this conference. We had awesome speakers. But, Dorthy  and Ashton  who put on the conference, were probably the highlight of the conference.  I came […]

The Answer To Laces vs Velcro: Making Elastic Shoelaces

I don’t think there is a Mom in the world who doesn’t get frustrated with retying shoe laces. Heck, I don’t like to tie my own shoes, I would much rather slip something on. Up until these shoes we have always bought Velcro for our son, but I could only run from laces for so long. My […]

Chicken Tacos, Re-fried Beans and Too Much To Do

One of my new Online BlogCon friends, Rachel from I Love My Disorganized Life was talking the other day about how when you are a stay-at-home-mom suddenly a lot more is asked of you. I know that this is true in my own life. I constantly hear “Oh, Brenna, you are free, can you run […]

Pajama Pants For Little Ones

Quilters and sewers alike are famous for having UFO’s (Unfinished Objects) and I am no exception. Some of my projects are stuck on a list while others have even made it to the cutting table, but they all remain in that unfinished status. This week I was happy to get something off of my list… pajama […]

Cranberry Orange Muffins

We live in a small town, but we are very fortunate to be near this wonderful coffee shop. It’s an old house that’s been redone.  Each room if filled with nice comfy chairs and tables where you will find people having meetings, reading or even playing a round of cards. My husband and I love […]

The Fabric Softener Experiment

Do you ever wonder how many people really try their “Pins” on Pinterest? And if they do, how they work out? While I can’t tackle all my Pinterest boards, here’s one project that I did and want to share with you. First of all, you have to understand that I have pretty high standards when […]

Kielbasa, White Bean and Swiss Chard Soup

It doesn’t need to be said that we enjoy a good farmer’s market. We love going each week and getting new fruits and veggies to try. Our son gets just as excited about it as we do, which makes us feel like proud parents. On our latest trip, we picked up Rainbow Swiss Chard. I […]

A Real Perfect Pot Roast

I am just going to be honest. Even though the “Cooking from Scratch” Challenge is something I started, it’s still a new concept to me. I haven’t cooked this way for long, so I guess you would say I am going back and reinventing my recipe box. My old recipe for Pot Roast was a very […]
