Happy Christmas in July! I must admit that, once the Fourth of July comes and goes, I am so over summer. As soon as I put my red, white, and blue away, I begin planning for the upcoming fall and Christmas seasons. I am absolutely obsessed with making wreaths to hang around my home. While at a thrift shop recently, I picked up a great little roll of red and green plaid wire-edge ribbon. Pulling some additional red, green, and silver mesh and ribbon from my collection, I crafted myself a pretty little holiday wreath that I plan to hang up during Christmastime.

I have tried both brands of diapers. My only real complaint is the snap-in inserts. I hate how snap-in inserts come off in the wash. I personally prefer a truly all-in-one diaper with a sewn-in insert.

Did you know? During weeks 1 and 2 of pregnancy, your baby is still just an egg in your ovaries and a sperm waiting to be formed in your partner's testes. During week 1 of pregnancy, your body begins preparing for your baby-to-be. During your period, your uterus sheds its endometrial lining. During week 2 of pregnancy, the increase in estrogen in your body will also cause your cervix to begin producing more fertile cervical fluid.

If you are interested in learning more about the dynamics of the family within modern American culture, I recommend checking out The Stuff of Family Life: How Our Homes Reflect Our Lives by Michelle Janning. Although written by a professor of sociology, the book remains accessible and engaging for the everyday reader. I personally enjoyed the many amusing anecdotes included throughout the book. If you have ever wondered what the placement of your TV in your home or the contents about your underwear drawer say about your family dynamics, pick up a copy of The Stuff of Family Life today to learn more about the fascinating topic!
