Puddle Progression

Yesterday was finally nice enough and dry enough (as in not snowing or raining or some combination of the above) to take the Prince out for a walk around the neighborhood. What toddler can resist a puddle? Certainly not mine! Of course, he got a bit lazy and less...

Your Blue Eyes Are Smiling

Just a random photo of the Prince with a great smile. It was a bit blurry, so I played with the coloring for a bit. Finally decided that black and white worked best, but I was disappointed that you couldn't see his blue eyes... so I removed the black and white effect...

Food Binges

What are some things you can do to distract yourself when you feel a food binge coming on? Food binges are the worst for me in the evening. I can do so well for the whole day. Then it gets to about seven or eight and my mind starts to do a mental walkthrough of the...

Birthday Plans

Today is my husband's birthday. If he had his say, the day would pass as any other. In my family, we always make a big deal of birthdays. My husband may see it as just another day, but that doesn't stop me from trying to make him feel special! I make a chicken and...

Spring Cleaning on Tyrneathem

So I did the whole spring cleaning thing in the house... time to clean up Tyrneathem a bit! I try to do this several times a year, but it's been awhile. This entails removing posts that are no longer relevant... old deals, coupons, and giveaways that have expired. I...

Spring Cleaning

I feel like I've been slacking a bit... okay, a lot... in household duties lately. Actually, it hasn't been just me. Lord Tyrneathem and the Prince have been a bit lazy too. None of us are really feeling 100% yet since the cold that took us all down in January. I...

Which Star Trek Character Are You?

Yep... I'm at it again. The Disney Princess and Harry Potter quizzes were not enough. My Facebook buddies keep posting their quiz results and I can't help myself. Classic Star Trek [button link="http://www.zimbio.com/quiz/1QqLzvl5aMU/Original+Star+Trek+Character"...

A Happy Birthday for My Niece

If you visited yesterday, you may have noticed that my daily quote had become a "happy birthday" message for my niece. Niece N turned eleven yesterday and she had a party at her Grandpa's house. Her dad, my ex-brother-in-law M, was cool enough to invite us all over to...

UGH! Nanas!

My mom's birthday was on the 14th, but one or another of us has been sick or the weather has been awful so we didn't get around to her birthday dinner until last night. After dinner, my mom asked the Prince if Nana could have a birthday kiss. He gave in......

Which Disney Princess Are You?

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and noticed that several of my friends have been taking "personality" quizzes on a site called Zimbio. It just brought me back to the very, very early days of my blogging life. In a moment of nostalgia, I couldn't resist...

Happy Birthday, Mom!

I just wanted to take a moment to wish a very happy birthday to my mom... We had plans to take her out for dinner, but Wisconsin weather strikes again! I guess she will have to wait to open her present....

A Rough Start to the New Year

The new year brought along a bit of a rough spell for us. Not only did Lord Tyrneathem have to deal with the kidney stones, but I came down with a really nasty cold. Today is the first I have been out of bed in over four days. The Prince picked it up too... luckily,...

Ringing in 2014 in the ER

We began our New Year's Eve with plans of driving to see a group of friends that we hadn't spent time with in quite awhile. After the Prince was born, we pretty much stuck close to home unless he was with us. It was kind of a big deal for us to leave him and drive an...

Our Christmas 2013 ~ Christmas Day

Santa arrived overnight and we started our day opening gifts from the big guy in red. The Prince was spoiled with a ton of train toys including a wooden rail set with Thomas trains, a Duplo motorized train set, and a Strider bike. He was a bit startled by the big...

Our Christmas 2013 ~ Christmas Eve

We had a nice Christmas with our families this year. Our Christmas Eve was a small gathering of my mom, Lord Tyrneathem, the Prince, and myself. We had our traditional dinner of polish sausage and cinnamon rolls. It's a strange combination, yet it always hits the...

Merry Christmas!

I am taking the next two days to spend time with my family and share in the holiday with those that I love. I may pop in if I find I have some downtime, but family is the priority this next couple of days. I leave you with my first gingerbread house... which I made...

Appointments

Lord Tyrneathem took the day off work Monday so that we could tackle a few appointments for the Prince. His eczema has still been quite bad and his pediatrician thought he was old enough for us to rule out any other potential allergens. So, we headed off for another...

Decorating With Posters

Our son is now three years old. He is in that stage where he is outgrowing his baby stuff but still too young to really settle on a definite style in his room. It's the age when you find yourself looking for creative ways to add color and fun to their room, but in a...
