Do you think my tractor’s sexy?

Hubs and I bought a little Yanmar to till the garden, cut the grass, and clean out the "back 40." It will replace our lawnmower and hopefully last a long time. Sweet T is going to enjoy taking rides on it next spring. I just love this picture of the two of them together!     … [Read More...]

Denizen Jeans

Denizen Jeans by Levi’s

Denim styles change each decade along with popular brands, but as the creators of blue jeans I'm pretty sure Levi's is here to stay. When I was in junior high school (circa mid 90's) any teen who was anybody wore Levi's jeans. You didn't even think about showing yourself in public in Lee or, heaven forbid, an 80's brand like Jordache or Guess. :) … [Read More...]

Giveaway Entry Preferences

Before "Sweet T Makes Three" (and Sweet T herself!) took up so much of my time, I used to enter blog giveaways daily and won lots of awesome prizes as a result. I definitely had a preference for entry methods and have tried to incorporate those preferences into my own giveaways as much as possible. Granted now that I'm a blogger I realize what is … [Read More...]

While Attune carries several other brands such as New Morning and … [Read More...]

Oatmeal Bath

Homemade Oatmeal Bath

Sweet T has diaper rash for the first time in her life. I'm thinking weaning has something to do with it but since I'm not going to start nursing again now that she's eating table food like a champ, all I can do is try to force more water and juice in her and give her oatmeal baths. Why pay for oatmeal bath soak in the store when you can make it … [Read More...]

Show Me Your Rings!

There's a fun posting trend circulating the blogosphere. Wedding rings!  I attempted some "artsy" shots of mine on the piano keys. Not bad considering I don't have a DSLR. Did you look at rings together? No, Hubs asked my parents what my style was and chose it himself. He did a great job! Do you like your ring? Did you from the … [Read More...]
