Bits of Tid


Hi Britney!
This is the last week of seasonal sport transition before we're full force into ball season.  Which means I've been really trying to get the few house clean up things done.  It was nice to get the tractor out of the garage and actually start to really clean it out today.

Just as April flew by, I am certain it will be the same for May and June.  Somehow I need to make watching Will, coaching Lucy and me playing ball all work.  Sadly, most events are all falling on the same night so I'm not sure how that's going to look.

 I have also finished the crazyass process of picking all the exteriors out for our new home and I learned a few new words in the process.  Let's see if you can get a feel for it with this picture...

Our house is being dug this week!!! I am giddy with excitement to see this finally come to life.

Today I start a 12 week Pilates course using the reformers and other fancy machines that intimidate me.  My core needs some extra help being strengthened so I'm hoping this is something I'll like.

This week I'll also be finishing off the last recipes for my cookbook project.  You can pop over to the Blended Blog to see a hint of what we're up to. Hint- it is delicious.

I'm really going to make an effort this week to sit down and blog.  So much time has been spent on the new house that I need to take a week and shift my creative gears.  We'll see how that goes.
Have a great Monday.


  1. Can’t wait to get some updates on that beautiful house of yours!

  2. Congratulations on the big start to your new house! I'm looking forward to hearing about the process as you go!

  3. Sounds like large to me! Enjoy the torture machine. In a good way. Mostly.

  4. Yum. That cake looks delicious. Let me know what you think of Pilates, it kicked my butt the one day I went and was totally intimidated by the machines and my inability to use them. LOL.

  5. You have so many exciting things happening Deena!!! Congrats on the building of the new home, I know you are going to enjoy watching all of your planning come to fruition!

  6. Eek it’s DIG WEEK! DIG WEEK! It goes so fast now. Love your exterior choices! Ball season is crazy let alone all 3 of you. We just have one right now at 4-5 games a week, I can’t imagine more than that. I am sooo excited to see your dreams come to reality!!

  7. I used to do Pilates and loved it. I have no idea why I stopped!


Have a lovely day!
