Jenny Louise Marie Well hello my friend.  I have actually been looking forward to this post.  Rather I’ve been looking forward to getting some new questions from This Side of the Pond.  Sometimes it’s hard to know what to write about and having some questions is taking the easy way out helpful.   Without further ado, let’s get started with this week’s questions.   1. Setting aside the real March Madness (NCAA Basketball) describe something happening at your house this month that might earn the title ‘March Madness’? Well, since March is more than 1/2 way done, I can tell you that spring break is alwaysRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hey friends!  How was your weekend?  After a week of gray skies, we had a beautiful weekend.  So, I spent it outside ~  cleaning up our patio, doing some spring planting, and a little decorating.  We also celebrated my mom and dad’s birthday with a special dinner.  As you know, it’s springtime!  Time for bunnies, nests, pastel colors, and beautiful flowers.  If you like to add little seasonal touches to your home, I have found some great DIY, crafty ideas for you.  Many of these are super easy and do-able ~ even for you non-crafters out there.  So, get comfy and readRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie   Well friends, we did it.  Mr. Louise Marie and I made it through the Whole 30.  Free at last!….to drink some wine. 🙂  I feel super good about seeing the challenge all the way through.  I also feel pretty good in general.  Mr. LM is feeling good too and will be having his blood work done tomorrow to see if his numbers have changed.  #fingerscrossed  So, what now? Well, both Mr. LM and myself feel like this is not something that would be hard to maintain or keep doing in general.  However, we also both agree thatwe would like to enjoyRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I think I have a tutorial that is sure to help you.  I’m sure you’ve seen the many banners that are around these days.  They are very popular.  The problem is, when I pick one up, I have a hard time paying the money for something I know is a temporary decoration and usually made of paper.  Especially when I could make one quickly and easily.  Today, I am going to share with you the process I use to make my own festive, holiday banners. First of all, I should tell you that I use myRead More →

Wednesday Wonderings - stuff that's on my mind and making me go hmm...

Jenny Louise Marie Hello sweet friends.  It seems that these Wednesday Wonderings post is sort of popular – at least according to Google (& really, doesn’t Google know all?).  I wonder why?  Is it that you too have completely random things that you wonder about and so you can relate?  Or are you laughing at how  completely I am?  Either way, I’m happy to rant share on.  So, let’s just jump right in to this week’s very important thoughts.  🙂 Teacher Gifts Can we talk for a minute?  Teachers, by and large, are women.  As women, don’t most of us worry about gaining weight, losing weight, orRead More →

Well, this year is no different.  Of course, if you live in Texas like I do, it’s felt like spring for a bit now and spring fever is running rampant!    I haveRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie   Today, I’m joining Joyce  for a little q&a fun.  I found her as I was hopping around blogosphere and thought this would be fun.  So here goes…   1. What is one area of your life where you’re a perfectionist? Is that a good thing?​ Is everything an official area?  Sadly, I strive for perfection way too much….& sadly, I fall short every time.  But hey, that doesn’t stop me from trying. Is it a good thing?  Depends on who you ask.  Mr. Louise Marie would say no for sure.  It makes his honey dos much harder.   2. What’s something youRead More →
