Miscellany Monday

Hello, lovelies! I hope y'all had a good weekend. You know the drill~ I'm linking up with Carissa because I have a plethora of random thoughts this morning!
Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{one} I learned last night at youth that it isn't recommended to ingest a spoonful of dry cinnamon. This was the game that my darling husband came up with for the students. Of the eight that played, six threw up... but as gross as that is, in youth ministry, a game that makes even one kid throw up is considered a success. So last night was super successful! (YUCK!)

{two} I took the trend of wearing tall boots with jeans tucked into them on a test drive on Saturday. I was afraid that I would look and/or feel like a jockey, but I actually think it looked pretty cute. I didn't gallop even once!

{three} If you have little ones and have yet to discover the awesomeness of a good pediatric dentist, I urge you to search for one in your area. An indoor playground and super fast service make it totally worth it. Last week I had to take both littles for a 9:00am and 9:30am appointment (not exactly something I was looking forward to...), and we were done with both by 9:20!! Both kids were troopers~ and no cavities!

{four} I'm thinking that this week is going to be the perfect week for a giant batch of taco soup. I love that the weather seems to have finally turned for good and coolness has moved in... lots of soup recipes will likely find their way into my kitchen and here on the blog.

{five} My first craft show of the season is coming up on Saturday. I love doing the shows once I'm there, but the week before is typically insanity for everyone in the house. I'm pretty sure I have all the last-minute sewing finished, but piles of goodies wait to be priced, folded and loaded.

{six} One more picture from my phone that I thought I had already posted. Last Monday Remy's class took a trip to the fire station. This is a big deal, as on most days if you ask Remy what he wants to be when he grows up it's either a fireman or Spidey. Rem, in his typical style, did his best to act unimpressed, but when offered the chance to spray the hose, he could no longer remain nonchalant.


  1. Taco soup sounds SO good! I'll be making corn chowder with bacon this week. I love when soup season makes it's way back around.

    The boot and jeans thing is still something I know little about. I got a cute pair of Uggs last year for my b'day and every time I wear them with my jeans tucked in I feel like I'm trying to be 14 again.

  2. I love a good pot of soup. Taco and backed potato are two of my favorites!

  3. Hey this random thought thing is a great idea! I'm so stealing it.LOL I love your blog!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog last week! :)

  4. I'm dying for a big pot of chili. Glad Remy enjoyed the fire dept. tour. Our pediatric dentist is pretty good but not THAT fast. Holy cow! Have a great week!

  5. My youngest accidentally put too much cinnamon in her applesauce and well, you guessed what happened. Good to know that it was definitely the cinnamon now! Your girls are so cute. Mine are 18 months apart -- about the same as your, I think! So glad you came by today. I keep meaning to do Miscellany Monday, and well, maybe it will happen next week!

  6. We recently called around to try to schedule a pediatric dental appointment for our girls, but - sadly - our insurance doesn't cover it. The "regular" dentist will have to do.


I love to hear what you have to say~ Thanks for leaving your mark!
