Every once in a while I come across an illustration that I just fall in love with. This sweet little piece I found a couple of years ago on Etsy, and I don't know if it's the green (my favorite color) or the raindrops (I love rain), or the yellow umbrella, or the cutest little… Continue reading THE FRIDAY FRENZY- Lola Dutch
I was cleaning out the entertainment armoire the other day, shocker I know, and I came across my old Joe Scruggs Deep In The Jungle DVD. IT. IS. AWESOME. And once you listen to those songs, you will be singing them for days. FOR. DAYS! But it's all good, because who wouldn't want to sing… Continue reading ONE FLOOR UP!
Sometimes you just need a nap. I've needed one of those for roughly the last seventeen years! Oh, I've had something that resembles a nap, you'll know it as the comfy-on-the-couch, tucked-in-just-so with a blanket...albeit one that smells oddly like dried baby barf, even though there hasn't technically been a baby in the house… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – Chicken Wants A Nap
Want to know a little secret? I've got goals. Big, lofty goals. And you know what else? Walt Disney once said, "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing." So that's what I did. Two years ago I took a big step in the 'doing' part of reaching my writing goals.… Continue reading Picture Book Summit, Baby!
Who here remembers Poochie? How about those Lovable Shirt Tales? Maybe you know a little something about a thing called Underoos, or perhaps… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – Strega Nona
So I started work on that mini flower garden that hopes to grow into a mini flower farm one day and now I'm hot, dirty, sweaty, bleeding, cursing, and just a fleck of a straw away from all out bawling.... . . Putting in a new garden will put a smile on your face… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – Hug Me
My teenager just got his driver's permit. Want to know what that looks like? Picture this...an old beat up mini-van complete with smashed in side (thank you drive through car wash), what looks like straight from the hood bullet holes (thank you Maryland road work improvement team), cracked windshield, front license plate dangling from one lone… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY- Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride
I don't know how it happened but a while back, Fall I think it was, I was in the laundry room digging around for all the dirty soccer gear and I'm pretty sure I was attacked by a mound of nappy socks, the kind of nappy socks that you take one whiff of and the… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – The Napping House
I'm sure some of you are already relaxing by the pool, sipping your strawberry lemonade, enjoying the summer of 2016, while the rest of us are still trudging through the last couple weeks of school... Ya'll stink! Only kidding.... . . . Seriously, where is that rotten egg smell coming from? Oh well, how about… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – Flashlight
You guys...THIS book! It has been a family favorite for years. I love it! Maybe it's because I was born and raised in New Mexico and the Mexican culture was, and still is, an everyday part of life. Maybe it's all the lively colors...I mean, HOLA! COLORS! Maybe it's because rolling my tongue as I pronounce… Continue reading FRIDAY FRENZY – Bebe Goes Shopping
