Where I Am...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

It's been awhile since I've posted anything and if you are new and looking for me, I've decided to take an indefinite break from blogging. I enjoyed it while it lasted but God really placed it on my heart last summer after we moved that in this season of being a mommy to two precious ones that my priority needs to be them and blogging need to take a backseat and therefore has stopped for the most part.  I am loving teaching and spending time with my children and for now that is my focus. I don't get much time to myself to create or play but I'm slowly carving out some time for it so I may be back for an occasional post here and there but only time will tell ☺️.

Thank you for stopping by. Say hi if you feel like it and someday I'll be back to this little space of mine.

Becoming Narwhal Gardens: A yard update part 2

If you haven't see the progress of our yard yet, start first with this post and this post.

After a few very busy month with little work done in the yard, work began big time the week after Christmas. It was one of the coldest weeks of the year (for us San Diegians) but Max had taken time off of work so he and Aston bundled up to get things done! This is what the backyard looked like as of Christmas.
Soon to be location of the garden boxes.

Becoming Narwhal Gardens: A yard update part 1

We have been doing a ton of work in our yard since my last post way back in August. So be prepared this will be a long one because a lot has happened!!

This is what the yard looked like back in September.
 When we purchased the property, there were two slabs of concrete in place where two sheds used to be. We decided that those locations would be great for our new shed and chicken coop but they needed to be expanded to fit the size of the new buildings. Maxwell and my father-in-law, Bob, went to work to get things expanded. They used a very old cement mixer that Bob inherited from an old neighbor. It works great!

Meal Plan Monday #26


Hello everyone, I've been a little MIA from this little blog over the last few weeks because I just need a little break but I'm still posting Meal Plan Monday so anyone who looks forward to it as well as for myself and easy access to what we are having this week. Also, I am not staying completely to the menu every week this month because things have come up that cause it to change so you might see things numerous weeks in a row but we are not eating them numerous weeks, they just get moved from last week to this week since I've already bought the supplies :-)

Monday: Cheesy Broccoli and Cheese Casserole (Prime example...I haven't made it yet this month and it sounds good.)
Tuesday: Crispy Beef
Wednesday: Tacos
Thursday: Baked Coconut Chicken
Friday: Hamburger Soup (Family recipe that I keep meaning to blog but the pictures don't make it look as appetizing as it is :-))
Saturday: Slow Cooker Roast Chicken

Some recipes that we used last week that weren't on the menu:
Potato Soup - This one is super tasty!!

House Update: Fall Entry Way

One of the things I was most excited about when we were looking at houses was getting to set up and decorate an entry table. I have always loved the pop of decoration when you walk into someone's home. Well when we bought this house, I was excited because there was a perfect little entry way area when you walked in the front door.

Once we painted the wall, I found this table and liked the look. Now I will say that I wouldn't recommend the table to anyone. It was a pain to put together (after putting together Ikea stuff which is a breeze compared) and the instructions were awful! Also, I'm concerned about how well it will hold up. I don't plan to be hard on it but it's just not the best quality product (lessons you learn when buying something online.)
 I just love sunflowers this time of year! They are so happy and just make me smile! Also do you see Maxwell's touch added in? Can you tell he's ready for hockey season?
 I created this subway art a few years ago and just add in new things we will be doing that year. It kind of serves as our bucket list for the fall as well.
 We originally filled this basket with apples from our Apple Picking Day but those are now gone and have been replaced with pumpkins.
What fall decor do you have out right now? Are you going to make any transitions to your decorations as we head into November?
