what i've been up to



is it really >>>---------->march 13th<----------<<< already!?!

my, oh, my, how time does fly!
how are you all doing?
i have missed chatting with ya, but i've been a very busy girl.
and i know that you have been busy, too!

i have been busy...


trying new things 
 
{artichokes brussel sprouts roasted in garlic grapeseed oil.  do this, please.  you'll thank me}
note!  you will only thank me if you buy BRUSSEL SPROUTS and do this.  i cannot attest to the aforementioned artichokes.  clearly my brain was on vacation when i typed this! :)
thanks, girlfriend!


drinking lots of coffee
 {and apparently feeling brave to post such a close up!?}


monitoring tea parties 

{enjoying my best friends new home}

taming ninjas
 {henry and his best friend, mr. jack}


cleaning
 {because my best friend FINALLY moved into their new house! praise God!}


taking random photos of myself 
 {because that's what you do when kids are coloring on your lap and there is a phone nearby, right?}


homeschooling
 {we love projects}


discovering my love for vitamix
 
{this is an amazingly delicious smoothie}
and there is a tad bit of a coveting issue happening here.
you see, the vitamix is not mine, but i REALLY wish it was.
*kale
*spinach
*strawberries
*bananas
*teeny orange juice
100% YUM


accepting precious gifts
 {from a precious jewel}


enjoying the spring rain
 {during piano lessons}


going on roadtrips


{an opportunity to spend time with my extended family, while giving their momma and daddy some time away}


playing with my nieces and nephews
 
{so.much.fun.  all five of them!}


witnessing miracles
 {because God is the Great Physician, and He is still answering prayers}
oh, is He EVER!


feeding babies
{i just can't get enough of that smile}


admiring spring accessories
{because a tablecloth can make a whole room cheerful! don't you agree?} 


thinking about blogging about it all
 
{but not quite finding the time}


learning
{because it's the most important thing i could ever do.  for me, and for those that God brings into my life}


how have you been doing, my friends?
i know it's like a total picture overload, 
but how else could i catch you up on my life?
:)
much love to you all!

xo,
mary

  4. i agree with carissa, i love your header!! i'm trying to finish up a cross stitch for my mother in law for her birthday next week. your artichokes look so much like brussel sprouts! i really dislike artichoke hearts, but i love stuffed artichokes. my mom used to make them. i wish i had the recipe...i think it had been passed down through the family. in the summer we make kale, carrot, apple, cucumber juicers. even the kids have to eat them! oh, you'd love them!

    btw, i'm your new follower! ;-)

  5. Looks like such a fun get away!!
    I'm so intrigues by the pic of your homeschool project- what were you guys making??
    Your smoothie did indeed look a little scary- but in a good for you way. Hmmmm . . . . maybe I should give it a try! :)
    Hope you're having a good week so far!
