Project 365- Week 1

As I mentioned at the beginning of the year in my "Resolutions" post, I've decided to attempt the 365 Project this year- where you take at least 1 photo every day in order to document some of the small, every day moments... So far, I've done pretty well- I missed one day the first week but have managed to take a photo at least every other day this year.  Here's Week 1:


As for those other "resolutions"?  Well, I'm not doing very well with the working out thing.  Although I HAVE been faithfully doing the 100 Pushups Program since the beginning of the year and am proud to say that I started out being able to do 11 pushups (on my knees pushups, not full out hardcore ones), and can now do almost 40.  So that's something.  I've cut back a bit on the ice cream, although not as much as I need too- that's a  work in progress.  Less looking, more doing?  Well, I've been doing more crafts and things- when I'm not curled up on the couch with my iPad that is... But I've definitely done more in the past few weeks than I had in the last few months of 2010.  I was doing well with my "more blogging" resolution but have slacked off over the past week or so.  I'm drinking more milk and water.  And the final, big resolution to get pregnant this year, well there's no news there yet.. Hopefully soon!


  1. this is a very cool idea - I'm not a big scrapbooker, so I don't know what I do with all the photos, but I think I might adopt a similar project

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…


I’m finding myself a bit scattered about what I want to say on Mother’s Day this year.  While I love the idea of a day that’s meant for celebrating mothers who are so rarely thanked for all they do, I find it to be a rather bittersweet holiday.  Much like Valentine’s Day can be hard for people who long to be in a relationship with someone, Mother’s Day can be very hard for those who want so badly to be mothers.  And while I’ve been fortunate enough to be the recipient of Mother's Day cards, flowers, hugs and kisses for five years now, my heart still aches for everyone hoping and praying to celebrate it themselves one day- those waiting to receive smudgy cards with little handprints and cheesy poems, to be served breakfast in bed by excited little ones, to be handed a beautiful yellow flower (aka dandelion) because it’s a special day for Mama.  And so I think that Mother’s Day should be a day to celebrate all sorts of “mothers.”  Mothers of young children, mothers of grown children…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
