About the time Leyna was a year old, I remember reading a comment on my Facebook page from a woman named Leyna. It was the first time I “met” someone else with that name. It was so strange how we connected. She followed a blog/photographer friend of mine from Austin, who at some point linked […]

 Let’s talk consignment sales! This post is sponsored by Just Between Friends, a Dallas area consignment sale.  This guy is 8 weeks old.  That sound I just heard was your mind being blown, I know. And in true Krause Kid fashion, he’s starting to chub out.

The end of the school year for us totally snuck up on me. As it does every year. So not only was I like, “Holy crap! I have to entertain my kids all day long now?” (Until summer school starts because YES they will be going to THAT.) But then I was also like, “Holy […]

I got a text from a friend who recently had a baby tonight. And then, a few hours later, I found myself feeling particularly mopey. Scott fell asleep while putting Kendall to bed. The house is a mess, despite me cleaning all the things this morning. I’m so worn out from crafting, yet I have so […]

I always struggle with what to get the kids’ teachers at the end of the year. How do you show your appreciation for them and not simultaneously load them up with a bunch of trinkets, crap and calories? I’ve done the gift card thing many times, and that seems like the safest route, but it […]

“Hey, the ice machine isn’t working anymore. I tried several times to unjam it, but I don’t think there are any chunks of ice that are keeping it from dispensing. I think it’s broken,” I said with a sigh as Scott walked in from work this evening. And I really had “tried” in that I […]

I wouldn’t want you all to think that all I post about these days are pretty pictures and crap. So, just to remind you all of my wicked sense of humor, I’m sharing this video that my friends from HowToBeADad pointed out to me. Because they know I secretly long to excrete a viscous goo […]

The first title was what I planned on using before I actually took the pictures for this post. The second is, well, obvious.
