Back to School Fashion: First Grade Chic

BB will be the first to tell you that some things are fancy and fashionable and other things just are not.

Cloth Diapering: The Journey Begins…

Good news: I finally got my husband on board to try cloth diapering! It wasn’t easy ladies, this man had his reservations and then some!

Day Five: Clearly We Need To Go Shopping Our pantry raiding continued Saturday morning as Dan managed to make pancakes sans eggs with a fruit juice “syrup” for breakfast.
