Sharing what I'm loving right now, family/life happenings, favorite finds, and whatever else pops into my head.

Hey guys! Happy Friday!

Today is one of my last remaining days off before the end of Spring Break. After surviving the kids' first dentist appointments this morning, it's time to relax.

Sure, there are toys all over the living room... Laundry that needs folding... A dishwasher that needs emptying. But I don't care.

I'm only now starting to see the light after digging myself out of a big emotional rut. So I'm slowing down and looking the other way when it comes to the housework. Because, every now and then, I need to let the day play out on its own without worrying about my to-do list.

With that in mind, here's a small bitch of tidbits for you to enjoy as you roll into your weekend.

What's for Dinner: March 17 - March 23

Looking for dinner inspiration? Here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week!

The spring cleaning bug bit me pretty hard yesterday. I swept and mopped floors... and decided I'll have to go back and scrub the wood floors by hand to give them a deeper clean. As I cleaned the kitchen after making breakfast, I thought about pantry organization. I vacuumed all the mats and carpets in the house... Then I changed the sheets on all the beds and started tackling the laundry from the week.

The play corner in the basement needs straightening up. I have to figure out where Caroline's birthday gifts are going to live. Then I want to give my wardrobe another purge and take a look at the kids' clothes to see what they'll need for the season. Then this... then that...

We have to run errands after church today, so I'm not sure how much more I'll get to clean this weekend, but this is a decent start.

I suppose it's safe to shift gears and think about cooking again... Without further ado, here's what I've planned for dinner at our house this week.

Hey guys! Happy Friday!

I think I've finally found my blogging rhythm again. It feels great generating new content on a somewhat regular basis, and I hope you're enjoying what you're seeing here. I'm even hoping to get into the kitchen this weekend to shoot new photos for the first time in a long time.

I meant to share a new Tidbits post with you all last week, but I was consumed by preparations for Caroline's birthday party. I have tons to share, so... without further ado, here's the next batch of tidbits for you to read at your leisure.

When You Have Cold Feet {or Must-Have Women's Slippers}

A quick glance at the calendar tells me that we're one week away from the start of spring. That means longer days and warmer temperatures. Probably not the time to focus on buying a new pair of super cozy slippers, right?

Au contraire.

We're approaching the end of the slipper season, so you're going to find some decent sales out there. And, if you're like me (i.e., you're always cold), then there really is no end to the slipper season... and now's the time to take advantage of some of those deals.

Besides, I'm totally coming up short in my quest for new work pants. (I had to return these and these and these...) Focusing on another area of my wardrobe will help take my mind off the fact that I can't find black pants to fit my mom bod.

These are the slippers that have caught my attention...
