my week in review: 8/23-29//2013

Sharing my Instagram photos and whatnot.

I was so anticipating the arrival of my mug swap package that I completely forgot that a long, long time ago I signed up to get sent this book.

Glennon from Momastery wanted everyone who wanted to read this book be able to read it. That's how important she thinks it is. But she didn't have enough copies for everyone. So she wrote several addresses in the front of each book and the people who received the book from Glennon had to pass them on to the next person on the list. I'm last on this book's list and I feel kinda bad that the sharing stops with me.

I want to continue the goodness! So if you want to learn about how the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead, then email me your mailing address at annebgoodblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I'll send it to you when I'm done. But you must promise to pass it on to the next person, okay? 

If you are the last one one the list, then I hope you will follow my lead and find people to give it to. Make sense?

Let's keep this goodness that Glennon started going!


I'm making homemade laundry soap. Here's why. And how.

Laundry is expensive. 

Laundry. It's never ending. And laundry detergent, it's expensive! When I go through a lot of detergent - and am also on a tight budget - I care less about packaging and (dare I admit it?) even fragrance than price. The other day, while I was in the grocery store looking at the prices for laundry detergents and soaps, I was reminded of some blog posts and pins I'd seen about homemade laundry soap. They boasted unbelievable cost savings. Savings I could really use right at the moment.

Laundry Soap vs. Laundry Detergent.

Some people are pretty adamant about one vs. the other and it has little to do with cost. Without trying to explain the science behind it (because I was never good at understanding science let alone explaining it) it would be fair to say that detergents use synthetic ingredients while true soaps use natural ingredients. The science behind it is interesting though. Look it up if you are curious.


my week in review: 8/16-22//2013

Sharing my camera phone photos and the stories behind them.

Every single week.

Friday night some friends came to Rochester and we had a double date. We hadn't seen them for a while so it was fun to reconnect. Always.

I love this fountain at the Peace Plaza downtown. Beautiful evening. Beautiful company.


5 Things to Make With Basil Other Than Pesto... and a Recipe for Pesto.

If you are like me, you planted basil in the spring thinking it would be so nice to pick a fresh sprig of basil every once in a while for dinner. Suddenly one day you go to pick a sprig and you find a three foot basil bush. Obviously your basil plant produced a lot more basil than you had time to pick fresh basil sprigs.

Sharing my Instagram photos from the last week.

Saturday morning I attended an event called "Panthers and Pearls" for football moms, sponsored by the Century football booster club. I thought I'd bring out my pearls for the event.

Being married to a football coach, having taken (and passed) a coaching football class in college, I thought that I kinda knew all I needed to know about the game. I was very impressed with the presentation. It was very informative. And I even learned some stuff!

Sharing the Instagram photos from the past week. 

Since I work a good deal up the highway towards the Twin Cities from Rochester, after work on Friday my family came and picked me up to go to a wedding in Stillwater/White Bear Lake. Which meant I had to get ready for the wedding at work.
I'm pretty sure the boiler room has never seen a flat iron before. It was the only place I could find a mirror next to an outlet.


new page: table of contents (I'm getting organized)

This blog is a place where I collect my story. I don't always collect it very neatly, so I made a table of contents page in an effort to make it a little more organized while I try to figure out my labels.

Most of my posts have been "my week in review" posts. And they are a great tool to collect our family's present story. In my other posts I've made an attempt to collect the other parts of my story and some of my thoughts that might be a little more vulnerable than my weekly reviews. Sometimes I lose these posts in the labels and titles. Hopefully this table of contents will help me be more organized. And maybe it will help any would-be readers to find content they're interested in reading.


my week in review: 7/26-8/1//2013

Sharing the pictures. Telling the stories.

With my brother and his family in town from New Hampshire for the first time in three years, the cousin fun continued this week.
The younger girls wanted me to put up the tent. They spent most of the day in there with the stuffed animals. I brought them a nice healthy snack: diet Pepsi and giant marshmallows.
