The Pantry

"Pull up a chair.  Take a taste.  Come join us.  Life is so endlessly delicious." - Ruth Reichl

That's the quote I would put in my pantry if I had a spot to put it.  My dear, sweet hubby built me this amazing pantry earlier this year, and I just have to share it.  It was quite the project, but the end certainly justified the means.

The Box

What kid doesn't like a gigantic box?  So when a giant box showed up at the house a couple months ago, I thought I would let Kyla play with a while before it got tossed out with the trash.  She was thrilled, of course.  Then she asked if she could sleep in it that night.  At first I was going to say no like any proper mother.  Then, I thought, "Well, what could it hurt?  It's Friday night."

Sam's Club vs. Wal-Mart

I have been on a quest to feed my family in the most cost- and time-efficient manner possible.  I have thought long and discussed much the idea of once-a-month grocery shopping.  I am hoping to make it a reality in time...once my new pantry is finished and I have space to put everything!

Along the way, I began questioning how much exactly a person actually saved by buying things (often in bulk and always in name brand) at Sam's Club.  I decided to find out.

Unexpected Gifts

As I sip my 7th cup of coffee in 2013, I am feeling a bit reflective.  What is prompting this reflectiveness?  Maybe its just the new year...or some things I've been reading...or the idea of a whole day before me with nothing that is so pressing that I cannot afford the luxury of sitting down and blogging for a few minutes.

My two beautiful children are sitting on the floor near me.  Kyla is drawing with markers, and Kamryn is perfectly content to be near and to watch.  Two amazing girls.  A friendship that is obvious even at their tender ages.  Creativity and curiosity.  Unexpected gifts.
