Awe, Look What the Kids Bought Me

My kiddos bought me a pretty mug for my birthday this year. I haven’t received a coffee mug in a long time from any of my family members. I know my Sweets thinks my collection of mugs is complete just like my book addiction collection.
Pioneer Woman Mug
Right now I’m drinking my butter/coconut coffee from my 15oz pretty pioneer women mug!

At this very moment:
Joshua is showering and getting ready for his day. He goes to work in a few hours.

Annette is watching a tutorial on how to oil her sewing machine.

Caleb, Brent, Ethan, and Lance are, um, sleeping.

Today’s Happenings:
Later today the Annette, Caleb, Brent, and Ethan will spend a few hours at the library.

I would like to finish a review for The Thinking Tree. These are super fun reviews because so far I’ve loved every, single, book! I'm playing around with the idea of having Spot Light Thursday or Thinking Tree Thursday where I'd talk (write) about one of the books. I think that would be fun. And when we start our official school year do the same with our curriculua like Master Books Monday or Heart of Dakota Tuesday (not every week of course that would be too much for me).

Lupe will teach AWANA to the T&Ters

Something New:
Loving my new pioneer women mug!

An online something new is I became an affiliate with Amazon. It’s something my sister Cynce has encouraged me to do but I just never took the plunge. I didn’t want any readers to feel like It’s all about the money. I’ve always shared links to what I’ve bought or used to make it easier for readers to find things. So hopefully y’all don’t mind.
I like the cool buttons (aff. link):

I’m still learning. I don’t know how to insert text and all. The only thing I don’t like is I have to put a disclosure on lots of my post now. Not that I don’t want to disclose that I may be earning some book money but the whole purpose of my blog is to record our memories. And it’s my dream to print my blog someday which means when I print it there will be a FTC regulations banner. But it is what it is and that's okay, I'll live (smile).

So this graphic will show up BEFORE affiliate links or I’ll put (aff) or (aff link) whenever there is an affiliate link.

So that is what we’re up to right now!

P.S. My friend Megan at My Full Heart is having a giveaway of 4 Thinking Tree books!


  1. Such a cute mug! I've been eyeing a few dishes in her new collection.

    Enjoy your coffee and I'm thinking of you while slowly sipping mine. I've had a bit of relapse in my health and slowing down again to hopefully win this battle for good.

  2. Thank you!!! Annette is the one who picked it out. I thought it was very sweet of them to get me a mug. It's a treasure!


Sorry about the word verification. I know it makes commenting no fun but I have been getting so much spam. Thank you for understanding and I hope you will take the time to comment. I love hearing from you all.
