#3 and #4 – 31 Little Things

Number 3 doesn’t count as a little thing so much because it’s a big thing. So very big. My grandma came into town on the 3rd and I had the pleasure of being the first one to greet her when she came off of the airplane. She’s an amazing woman and has inspired me all of my life. She’s 92 years young and this is her.


I’ve entered contests on blogs before but have never won. Yet I keep trying. However, our friends at Finding Mickey hosted a thank you giveaway on their blog last month and I won! You can click the blog link to see just what I won, but here’s the box I opened yesterday when it arrived.

Thanks again Rosemary and Neil! You guys are awesome!

We met them through our Disney twitter project Overheard at Disneyland. If you haven’t seen the site, check it out. It’s a lot of fun!

#2 – 31 Little Things

I have mixed feeling about cooking. Sometimes I love it, other times I loathe it. Maybe if the kids were more interested in eating what I take the time to cook, I’d like it better. There are things I know some of them just won’t eat, so I don’t want to spend a lot of time making something when so few people will be eating it. Enter the slow cooker. There’s no loathing the slow cooker. I mean really, just toss everything inside, turn it on and that’s it!

I have 2 of the. I’ve got the big one with digital settings and then I have this smaller one that has warm, low and high. Simplicity at it’s finest.

My slow cookers bring me joy. They really do.
