How a Procrastinator Gets The Laundry Done

How a Procrastinator Gets The Laundry Done

You might hate laundry if...

Laundry is my least favorite chore. In fact, I have said many times that laundry is my arch nemesis of household chores. Yet, every week it needs to be done. 
WHY?!!! Why does it torture me so?! I’m pretty sure that, in the many layers of Hell, you would find a layer solely dedicated to laundry where you would be trapped in an eternity of smelly and stain ridden shirts, a never ending pile of…

Hi, I’m Laura. The niche-less blogger.

have I mentioned I love food?

have I mentioned I love food?

Niche. I’m not a fan. I guess I don’t like having to keep my blog and what I publish on it in one certain arena. I can’t help it, I like a lot of different things. I like to write and share on various topics, and as much as I’ve tried to keep myself narrowed to a niche I just can’t seem to do it. 

Oh… what is a niche? (I thought I heard someone whisper that just…

Honing the Skills of Conversation and Silence While Traveling with Kids

Honing the Skills of Conversation and Silence While Traveling with Kids

I-40 across America

My favorite pictures from our trip, driving from the West Coast, to the East Coast all the way on i-40.

*cough cough cough* WOW!! Blog’s a little dusty. Well, nothing like a post to update this space, and blow out the cobwebs. 

So, how has your summer been so far? Mine? Busy. We PCS’d from the West Coast to the East Coast. I took one vehicle with 2 kids and 2 cats, though I think I left bits of…

5 Things for ME! - focusing on my health

5 Things for ME! – focusing on my health

five things to take care of you

Last week I focused on finding my calm. Some of the things I listed were writing in a coffee shop [accomplished], painting my nails [accomplished], and getting some yoga in [not accomplished]. So, in not getting my yoga checked off the list, I realized that I really hadn’t done a whole lot of working out in general last week. So this week I’m focusing on my health. 

Health is so much more than…

Sausage Gravy over Biscuit Waffles

Sausage Gravy over Biscuit Waffles

a new take on the classic biscuits and gravy

It is my opinion that waffle irons are totally underutilized. I mean, seriously. What’s not to love about a waffle? Those square craters are the perfect recepticals for all sorts of deliciousness, not just butter and syrup. 
So it’s my mission to make as many things as possible in my waffle iron, and show you just how waffleicious food can be.

My first waffle creation was an easy pick in this…

Run With Me! my run path around Lake O’Neill, Camp Pendleton

A run path photomentary of Lake O’Neill, Camp Pendleton, CA by Laura Crawford

I’ve been running [and by running I mean trot along at a slightly faster pace than a turtle] for a while now. Not exactly sure when I started, officially, but I’ve been trying to be a runner since early 2012. Last year on Thanksgiving I ran my first 5k, a Turkeytrot in Oceanside. I didn’t run the whole entire thing…

5 THINGS FOR ME IS BACK!! 

If you’re here for the first time, let me give you a quick into to what this is all about.

As mommas/women/wives/friends, we are caretakers. Nurturers. We tend to those all around us, constantly pouring our hearts and energies into our kids, husbands, friendships. It’s not a bad thing, and I’m definitely not complaining. It’s what most of us naturally do. What we don’t…
