piles, pie, and pressing pause

I won't commit to it, but mayyyybe it's spring cleaning time here. You won't believe it, but we still have a storage unit that needs to be cleaned out from our big move in Fall 2014. And the time has come. For the last two days I've been sitting in the office sorting out bins while the kids are working on school. It's not pretty but it's getting done.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who has 2-3 different sizes of clothes for every season. {postpartum x 6 probs} 


I'm not even sure what to do with them, other than keep them in case I need them again. My girls are now getting to the point where I can pass a few clothes to them, and in 5 years I have a feeling they will be completely sharing my wardrobe and I'm going to have to keep them from wearing my clothes. {they're ALREADY stealing my socks??!}

Pi Day was 3-14, and in our typical fashion, we were late to the game. But better late than never when it comes to pie, right? ;)


I'm sad to say that in spite of all my sugar-loving dessert obsessions, I still can't bring myself to like pie. Chess pie is the only pie I like. I made that coconut custard pie, and it was so gross I covered the whole thing with a can of condensed milk to make it edible. :D It never fails, La Lechera is all you ever need to take any dessert up a notch {or three}.

The kids loved it, anyway.

Sweeter {and altogether better than pie} though was getting this beautiful journal called Pressing Pause^ in the mail from Ruth and Karen:


I am so excited, but I took a picture of it so you can see why for yourself {hopefully that's legal? tell me if not?! haha!}:


You can see that it's not just a few easy, forgettable thoughts- it's more heart-searching that looks like it could really help. I can't wait to dig in and read more and fill out the journal questions. After I finish my piles I'm pretty sure I'm going to be quite ready to press pause. :D
