Funkins #Review #Giveaway

I hate being wasteful. At home, we use the cloth napkins that were given to us 5 years ago for as a wedding gift. They are well loved, but just plain boring blue. There are times I would love to use something brighter. Enter Funkins.

The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter #Knitting #YarnAlong

I finally feel like The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter is coming along. I usually get bored with the stockinette stitch, but since I'm only able to knit a few rows here and there, I don't find myself tiring of it like I usually do. I did not finish it for Charis's birthday like I wanted to, but I hope to have it cast off by next week.

Currently reading:

Easy Crock Pot Tomato Sauce. We have SO many tomatoes from our CSA box. Fresh tomatoes are absolutely delicious, but Drew will only eat tomatoes after they've been cooked. I made this sauce yesterday in the crockpot, and it turned out delicious.

What are you reading or knitting?

Currently {August 19, 2014}

Thinking about how time flies! Charis is 4. It seems like it was yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital. I did not get any sleep the first night and cried at least 3 different times with my mum. Oh what lack of sleep and crazy hormones will do.

Yesterday was her birthday. She had a delightful day: woke up and we told her, "Happy birthday!" She started twirling around, dancing, jumping up and down. Grandma, Grandpa, and J. {her 2 1/2 year old cousin} surprised Charis by coming out to celebrate her birthday. In fact, she is with her grandparents and cousin now.

Ups and Downs of my Crazy Life {Coffee Date}

Life has been crazy, watching and interacting with my two children. Both demanding and pulling my attention. With an infant, it's sometimes easy to forget the older child. Thankfully, Charis has been dealing well with the change.
