WIWS and a little blog love

Happy Palm Sunday!

Well, I made the switch over to Bloglovin'. Since I have to claim my blog, I am just going to do it now and get it over with.


Thank you for allowing that foolishness!

Moving on to the fun stuff!

7 Quick Takes {vol 2}


1. Chris and the two younger boys rearranged our unfinished basement last weekend. When they were sorting through bins, they found this large puzzle of Mickey playing soccer. Last night they put it together and glued it to a large piece of cardboard. This morning Chris used his utility knife to cut the cardboard down to the shape of the puzzle, and then hung it on the wall above Tom's bed. Tom is very happy with it.

Please help send Hair Bows 4 Life to Africa




Several years ago, I met Cecilia at the baby shower of a mutual friend of ours. She was so friendly and easy to talk to, and I instantly liked her.

Cecilia is a wife, homeschooling mom to four children, and the owner of Hair Bows 4 Life

What I Wore Sunday

Happy St. Patrick's Day and happy Sunday! Sunday is my favorite day of the week because it is my husband's only day off from work. Sunday really is family day for us, and we start the day with Mass. Unfortunately, we were not able to attend Mass as a family this morning because the stomach bug that Ralph had last Sunday is making its was through the family. Thomas, our 9 year old, has had it for a couple days and was too sick to go to Mass this morning, so Chris and Ralph stayed home with him. I headed to Mass this morning with Holden, our 16 year old, and this is what I wore.

7 Quick Takes {vol 1}


1. Yesterday several friends and I drove into the Philadelphia to visit one of our favorite places, Ikea. I did not have much on my list to buy other than a couple packages of cookies and many chocolate hazelnut bars for the guys in my life, but when I saw the pretty pink napkins and the floral glass bowl, I just had to buy them. A girl needs a little pink in her life, especially in a house full of boys!

Yarn Along

I am still knitting my colorful scarf. I did change up the pattern, and I am happy with it.

Dan's vest




I finished my nephew's vest. I am very happy with how it turned out. I think Dan looks super cute in it. He is growing so fast that I don't think he will be able to wear it much longer, but that is fine because the weather should warm up soon. I think I will knit him a blue one for the fall.

Fun with soap

I finally joined Pinterest earlier this week. Better late than never, I guess.

Yesterday, the boys and I made our first Pinterest project.


It was really neat, so we microwaved another bar of soap.
The bar of soap expanded into a fluffy white cloud. Then the boys smashed it.
