Mildred Jane @ 23 Months

By Andrea | February 10, 2019 |

It’s a bit hard to believe, but Milli will be 2-years-old in just a month. At 30-inches tall, she’s still a tiny thing, but she’s becoming quite the big girl anyway. Mil’s latest obsession is Woody from the Toy Story movies. Her sitter got Buzz and Woody dolls for Christmas and she’s been obsessing over…

A Guild Communique Quilt

By Andrea | February 7, 2019 |

A big thanks to Dottie and her quilt guild for sharing their version of the communique quilt, which their guild made as a challenge quilt last year. They did a beautiful job with the throw sized quilt. I absolutely love their use of border fabric. Have you made a communique quilt?

Cozy Business Casual

By Andrea | February 6, 2019 |

I feel like sometimes dressing in business casual can be hard. Particularly when the only real rules in your employee handbook are “no jeans” and “no shorts.” Fortunately, I’ve found myself a bit of a recipe for looking good at work and still being comfortable. A well tailored pair of pants (or skirt… I love…

What I’m Reading

By Andrea | January 16, 2019 |

I haven’t done a post about the books that I’m reading in ages, because getting a chance to read is rare now that the tiny human is mobile. Instead of reading my books, I’m reading some of hers to her, playing kitchen, or watching Fancy Nancy. But, I do get a little time to read…

Mildred Jane @ 22 Months

By Andrea | January 11, 2019 |

We’re getting closer and closer to 2 years every day, and Milli is starting to show it, even if she isn’t getting much bigger. I weighed her last night as we’re still not quite 22lbs. There is seriously a 6-month-old baby at the sitter who is as big as her. But that’s OK. Mil packs…

Our home was very busy this holiday season with several Christmas events to attend and lots of new things to do. We managed to make it to 4 different family Christmas parties, our friend Dave’s Crazy Christmas Show on the radio, and Christmas Eve Mass this year, which I think is pretty impressive with a…
