RachelMy name is Rachel, but more importantly I am mom to Sarah, James & Daniel and step-mom to William & Clayton. Lots of times they make me want to bang my head on my desk or run away from home, but most of the time they keep me smiling and certainly make my life interesting. Neely is my other half, my soul mate, the love of my life. He's a musician, audio engineer and all around good guy. He smokes, so he's not perfect, but I'm working on him. On my blog I post things about our blended family, lots and lots of pictures and a recipe from time to time. I hope you enjoy getting to know us!

Daniel makes me laugh.

Out loud and often.  He says the funniest stuff.  Mostly because he’s hearing his brothers say things and he doesn’t fully understand what they mean, but he’ll repeat them anyway.  Yesterday our conversation went like this: Me: What in the world are you screaming about? Him: Well, Clayton and me built a town and I…

No, I don’t have the flu

I’m just pregnant.  Uh huh, I’m not kidding.  I’m a pregnant grandmother.  Our new baby is due August 5, 2011. Neely has been pretty hesitant about me sharing this news because of our last loss, but anyone he’s trying to keep it from does not read my blog.  Or at least I hope not.  I…

Trying this again

Last year I started a 365 Photo blog on January 1st.  I made it to March before I stopped posting everyday.  It was around th time of my miscarriage that I gave it up.  I just didn’t have the energy for photography at that point.  But this year, I really want to keep it going…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Well, not at my house since I’m such a slacker and don’t have a tree up yet. I probably will get it up next week. I do have lots of packages stored away that will need to be wrapped as soon as the tree is in place. I feel like I’m ahead of the game…

Day 6 of 30

Favorite super hero and why. Hrm.  I’m going to have to go with Wonder Woman.  I always liked Wonder Woman as a kid.  I had a Wonder Woman doll (like a Barbie), and of course, what girl child of the 70’s didn’t have Wonder Woman Underroos!  I liked Wonder Woman because she was/is beautiful and…

A picture of somewhere you’ve been to. Well, I’ve been to lots of places, but the furtherest was to England in 2003, to visit my nieces. I don’t have the original pictures any more due to the “hard drive crash of 2009”, but some of them did manage to get saved on photobucket. Big Ben…

I’m guilty.

I didn’t even know I was guilty until recently. You’re probably guilty too and don’t even know you’re doing anything wrong. What am I guilty of? I’m glad you asked. I’m guilty of improperly using a car seat with a winter coat. And I’ve been doing it for years; how bad is that? Children are…

Day 4 of 30

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have. Man, that’s a rough one.  I have lots of bad habits.  From drinking too much caffeine to sleeping too late, to snacking on SweetTarts too much.  But I think the habit I wish I didn’t have the most was my impulse purchasing.  Although I am…
