Not much going on around here.  Aaron and I took a fabulous Sunday afternoon nap.  Loved it.  We’ll do some packing tonight, grocery shopping and play outside with the boys.

I subscribed to a few new blogs recently so I thought I would tell you about them.  Honestly I subscribe to WAY TOO many blogs.  Every few weeks I’m deleting some that aren’t doing it for me anymore.  I’m a big skimmer, but there are some that I read and LOVE everything they write.  Here are some I added today.  I think most of them will be keepers for a while …

5 Minutes for Mom – I used to subscribe to this before and not sure why I canceled, but I just added them again.

My Charming Kids – this mom is pregnant with a son that has medical problems.  From what I’ve read of her blog so far she sounds super grounded, very happy, in love with her children, and an all around great mom.

Mama Manifesto – I found this blog a while back through another adoptive momma.  She is a contributor to this blog and I find that most all the entries appeal to me in one way or another.  They seem to like to eat “grow foods” and have great mommy moments and just plain good reads.  I encourage you to check this one out!

Little Green Secrets – This blog is about living green and simple.  I think she’s also a homeschooling mom and I look forward to following her journey.

Sew Unique – This is my friend Tamara’s sewing site.  She started doing these this summer and my boys each have one and I have one for Amos and one for Story.  They are super cute, and she donates some of her profit to Real Hope for Haiti, so that makes me love them even more!

Make and Takes – For those of you that  know me and follow this blog you  know that I have about ZERO craftiness in my body BUT desire to be crafty.  I like this blog and have been inspired.  As soon as we get to Austin and I get my “office” set up I’m going to set up my sewing machine and make these.  For most of you these are very elementary, but to me this will be monumental!

And last but certainly not least my obsession with Big Brother is in full force this season.  My friend Amy introduced me to this show a few seasons ago and it is our secret indulgence here at the Ivey house.  So, here is a blog to follow the show. Lame I know!  BUT if you don’t want to know what happens before is airs, don’t read this blog.  For me, I need to know, so I read!

So, there they are.  Go visit and see what you think!  Happy Sunday!
