Etsy--how I love Thee

Before I became a mommy one of my favorite things to do was browse antique stores.  I know that may seem odd to those of you who have been in my home because I don't have a lot of antiquey furniture or knick knacks sitting around.

The truth of the matter is I rarely made a purchase, but I loved to wander and look, and literally lose myself in all the junk treasures.

However, since I have I family, I don't go near antique stores very often anymore.  Antique dealers tend to frown on toddlers careening through their breakables, and I can't afford broken porcelain chamber pots.

Etsy shops have become my "mommy friendly" alternative.  I browse through the junk treasures to my hearts content, and the chamber pots are safe. :)

I have a couple favorite shops, but until last week I had never made a purchase. be continued.

What's New

I haven't posted for quite a while--mostly because life has been rolling on without much extra time or brain cells for blogging.

Sweet Pea is getting chubby and is very close to rolling over.  She is a little over 4 months old.

My two year old has graduated to a toddler bed--he is doing pretty well with that.  Stays in bed most of the time.

Three year old has had a lot of anxiety this fall--I've been trying to figure out some activities for him to do during home school.

My seven year old is doing very well with second grade--surpassing his and my expectations for this year.

My nine year old is having some allergy issues that come with the fall, but is doing well with school, and amazing me with his maturity.

And me...............well I'm struggling with all the gray fall weather.  The leaves, and temperatures are dropping and I'm trying to find a balance in my days.

I've been browsing a certain etsy shop, and recently made a purchase.....I'll share that with you when it arrives. :)

I've also been trying some new recipes that I'd like to share with you--yummy fall comfort food!

So, what's new with all of you?
