Welcome to This Week's Miscellany, the weekly feature at Carrots where I share photos, quotes, links, and whatever strikes my fancy! I'm honestly not exactly sure what's happening here. But whatever is happening is epic and awesome. This is definitely worth framing as it pretty much sums up these two. They are buddies in this quirky, Wes Anderson-y, … [Read more...]

And....we're back! Don't be misled that this photo depicted Gwen's excitement over This Week's Miscellany. That's a girl who is about to eat brunch. GIRL LOVES BRUNCH. Due to the holiday craziness and then several days of crummy sore throat ice, TWM has not seen the light of day for many a week at Carrots. So I apologize in advance for the insane length and extraordinary epic photo dumpness you're … [Read more...]

Spiritual Resolutions and a Podcast on Planners


I woke up this morning feeling like I was alive again after four days of crummy sore throat achy muscle misery. So, I actually GOT DRESSED. But no makeup so far, because let's not get crazy, ok? Anyhow, since my brain has been way too fuzzy to form coherent sentences (but surprisingly capable in the Gilmore Girls binge watching department), I'll share a couple of places you can find me this … [Read more...]

This Week’s Miscellany: Vol. 113


Just a few days til Christmas! How's your Advent going? I am feeling so ready to bust out the Christmas carols and decorate the tree. Lately we haven't been out and about very much. A few playdates with friends, trips to the grocery store and such, but not much else. Lots of snuggles and nursing in the morning next to the Christmas tree, though. Sorry for the bad quality photo. But this is … [Read more...]

Advent quote

Advent has been great so far. If only a tad too busy due to the book launch. But things are settling back into a groove and it feels lovely. Although our typical "homeschool" mainly consists of trips to the library, hours reading together, history audiobooks in the car, and the occasional math lesson for Benjamin when the girls are napping, we're taking it even easier this month. Advent picture … [Read more...]

Ok, I'm just gonna let that unbelievable cuteness sink in for a second. Gwen Stella is almost 18 months and it just one of my most favorite-ist ages. Sure, they scale everything in sight and break things and color on the walls and freak out because you won't them use their shoe as a spoon for eating guacamole or because they wanted that banana to be handed to them just BARELY peeled so they … [Read more...]

This week at Carrots: My post about coffee and marriage ended up being one of the most shared posts on ye ol' blog this year. Apparently there are other folks out there for whom coffee is a love language. Solidarity. In other news, Christy Isinger over at Fountains of Home and I have a big announcement to make next week! And I can't wait to tell you! Eek! My Obsession with the BBC: So here's … [Read more...]

This is what's been going on this week at the Stewart household. Birthday fun for my big 3-year-old, born on the Feast of St. John Paul the Great. Look at that little gingersnap last year at her Beatrix Potter birthday party! You can read all about that one and how/why we do super simple family birthdays in that post. This year's theme (chosen by the birthday girl herself) was … [Read more...]

This Week’s Miscellany: Vol. 106


Happy weekend, sweet friends! Thank you so much for sharing your prayer intentions with me last week in comments, emails, FB messages, etc. I'm sorry that I haven't been able to respond to every email and message, but please know that I prayed for you as promised at the Shrine of Our Lady of La Lechein St. Augustine on her feast day and lit a candle. The requests from those suffering from … [Read more...]
