Barf. Who talks about skin cells on a blog? I'm constantly surprised that you people stick around.
Pallet coffee table.
Is it just me or does upcycling feel like a joyful, redemptive, spiritual act? I keep staring at this table, marveling that a few days ago these pallets were junk. Now my monkey boys are doing puzzles on this pallet-turned coffee table. We're gathering around our advent candles in the evenings, elbows on this new creation...junk turned into beauty. Common thread in all of life's story. Upcycling feels like beauty wins.

Aaron had this video cued for me to watch when I woke up..my first gift on my birthday.
I laughed until I cried. Then I watched it three more times. It got more and more funny.
Next it was time to party! Paige Livesay and I share the same birthday week. We also share a love for Texas, wide open pastures, Gilmore Girls, bacon, and a hatred for hot dogs. I love this girl, could not be more proud of her, and am thankful for the influence and impact she has on our kid's lives. We tease our boys that if they are ever in doubt they can think, "What would Paige do?" Note to self: WWPD bracelets would be the perfect stocking stuffers for four little boys we know.
Tara Livesay knows how to par-tay.
She has a gift for making people feel special and loved.
Birthdays are her thing! She does them up right.
Thanks for the party, T. It was the bee's knees.
Just Dance on the Driveway
In my mind I am Beyonce when I dance. Until I saw this picture, I didn't think anything could convince me otherwise.
It was a perfect weekend! And to think 20 years ago, I would have thought by the time I turned 35 I'd be in a nursing home eating mashed potatoes. I guess I was wrong.
