Embarrassing Moments, The Countless Ways I Humiliate Myself

Hello Monday!

Today I am joining the Show & Tell Tuesday fun a few days late. This months topic is sharing your embarrassing moments. At first I wondered why in the world I (or anyone for that matter) would want to relive humiliation and put those red-faced moments on their blog for anyone to read. But then I realized that I have no shame and feel completely okay with making people laugh at the expense of my pride 😆 .

I opted to keep my stories short and sweet. I’m sure I could be more detailed, but I think a rapid fire approach may work best and keep me from questioning why in the world I am doing this.

Here we go…

With warm weather on the way there are two things that are guaranteed to happen in the Newman house. Number one, we will be on the go more frequently. With the construction process on a new home starting and two little girls who are ready to get out and explore, we will be going, going, going all spring and summer. Which brings me to item number two, staying hydrated. Keeping my family hydrated while we’re on the go is more important now than ever.

Give “Piece” a Chance, PI Day 2017

Does anyone know what day it is?!?!

Today I want to talk about how we are rocking our Pi Day and giving “piece” a chance.
Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl. The boy and the girl had just embarked upon an amazing adventure, they were building a new home for their family, and they couldn’t possibly be any happier to do so. But the decisions and the stress of those decisions was quickly mounting and they found themselves to be a bit more tense than they usually are. Which led to them quarreling a bit more than they usually do.

How To Create Amazing Spring Break Memories

We are on official spring break count down mode. It goes something like 10 days, 240 hours, or 14,400 minutes, not that we are counting. This is our first ever “official” spring break. In the previous 3 years of homeschooling we (I) have chosen to bypass a spring break so we could wrap up our school year sooner. However, now that I am schooling two children instead of one, and with the addition of long division, I think a break is a must. 

When I think about our very first spring break I have naively high hopes. Today I want to share with you my plans to create some amazing spring break memories.

Little Letters, March 2017

Hello Friday!

TGIF friends we are so ready for another weekend! It has been a crazy week of house decisions, road decisions, and looking at floor plans until I am already feeling over it, yet we have just begun. I guess the shock of it all is that it felt like we waited, doing nothing, for months and we are finally at a stage that actually requires us to decide things (big things). So exciting, so overwhelming. 

This week I am sharing another edition of my monthly ‘Little Letters’ where I write notes to divulge all the randomness that is currently going on inside my head.

My Month In Numbers, February 2017

So as much as I have made it totally clear that I wasn’t a fan of February, there were still a lot of pretty amazing moments too. Birthdays, a sweet baby girl, time spent with friend, and donuts… SO many donuts. In case you were unaware, donuts are my love language. I guess that might also explain why we are only a few weeks days away from spring and I am terrified to try on my shorts 😕 … Moving on!
