What we’ve been up to lately

Hey y’all!  My name is Adriane.  I once was the authoress of this here blog… Ok, ok, I know…I’m still the authoress albeit the very, very distracted authoress of this blog.  Life has been super-dee-duper busy lately.  I think April may have been the month to schedule every single event that needed to be done for our family of seven.  However, with the exception of a birthday party, a retreat for David & I, and a camping trip for the guys, I do believe that we may be in slow down mode now.  To that I say – YIPPEE!

So what exactly have we been up to during this unexpected 20 day blog break. 

Well, we’ve been…

April 15, 2012 004 celebrating a birthday with an ice cream dessert

(I can’t wait to show you what’s going on in the garden right now!)


There was so much more that has happened like…Bible drill, being an Andrew sister, making paracord bracelets for soldiers, swimming with friends, walking with my walking buddy, eating crawfish…I told you it has been a busy month for our family! 

These are busy days but they are so full of precious memories!


  1. It is SO good to hear from you, Sweet Adriane -- I have missed you! Life looks abundant there, and that is GREAT! I will tell you that I snorted out loud with that birthday candle bit, because that is EXACTLY what would happen in this house!!!! I love it - ya just roll with it and go on! You're the coolest cat! And that garden.....drooling......

  2. Thanks Sally! I've missed you too! Got to tell you about that birthday candle...if you look a little closer at the picture you can see that we did have a number one. The kids replaced the missing candle with a match! It just burned all the way out before we could finish the song! That's how we roll around here. :D Good times!

  3. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! HEE-LAR-EE-US!!!! Lord, have mercy, girl!

    Been missin' you on here. Looks like you guys have had a great month! And your garden...OOOH I am jealous!

  5. Been missing you too, blog friend! It has been a good month - very busy - but very good! The garden is doing really well. We had such a mild winter that I got an early jump on my planting. I'm actually going to harvest our first yellow squash tomorrow! This is crazy early to do that but it's ready! I'm not complaining. :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking time to leave me a message. I'll be sure to get back in touch with you!
