We celebrated yesterday by having friends over for Reuben sandwiches with corned beef from the farm, cole slaw (my own dressing of course), and homemade French fries!
Here's what I found for you today…
- Prepare to SCRATCH! This is a short video of when our daughter had lice, so you can see what they look like. I didn't think we'd survive the ordeal, but we did, and without the dangerous chemicals! Click here to read how we got rid of lice naturally. And watch the icky video here:

- Last week was the one-year anniversary of Pope Francis’ papacy, and even if you're not Catholic, you've got to love this video of the Dominican Sisters at the Ann Arbor, Michigan house who were in the middle of recording their first album when they heard the news that there was white smoke… Their reaction is really fun to watch. (Thanks Conversion Diary/Jennifer Fulwiler for sharing it! Don't forget to pre-order Jen's book, which is finally coming out soon!)

- OK, this one is kind of dumb, but yet fun! Mine was “green stack of books” – Share yours in the comments (come on, it'll be fun!) or here in the Facebook conversation. 🙂
- Here's one I knew you'd love on parenting…
- You guys are really going to think I'm nuts when you read this one… Don't tell anyone, okay? Once I was on my way up North alone, to my aunt and uncle's house in Traverse City, and there was a loooooooong stretch of road and it was very dark and late and I'd had coffee, a lot of it, because I get sleepy when I drive. You probably know where this is going… Well I've never admitted it to anyone, except my sisters who thought I was NUTS: I went in a diaper that I found in the van — I HAD to do it, don't judge me! Then the other day I found out about these little doohickys, which apparently are actually pretty popular. (I'm not so weird after all, people!) It seems to be split between the “Go Girl” and the “Shewee“, and a few others. And they're not just for you gals who get yourself in a predicament like I tend to do. Whether you're camping this summer, or can't find a clean public bathroom, or maybe you're like my friend who uses them when she's traveling overseas in places without good restroom facilities, these things could be really handy. I'm just not sure if my brain would let me go standing up… Anyway, hopefully I'm not grossing anyone out with all this talk on a Monday morning, lol!
