Month of May- Monday Wrap-Up

Holy crap, it's June already!

Apparently, I need to stop blinking, because that's how fast the time goes.

Aside from celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary and hitting over 150 Facebook fans, this is what happened around the Pirate house and blog in May:

On my Facebook page, I shared articles on the Dangers of Processed Meats, how an amendment for GMO labeling was shot down in Congress, and that experimental GMO wheat has been discovered in US products.

This month, I posted a tutorial on how to bleach your own design onto a t-shirt: Kraken Maternity Tee
I wrote about why I won't be hiding the aspects of my person that some people may not like anymore:  Just Be- About Me, the Color Purple, and Why I Won't Tone it Down Anymore

Penned a letter to my friend dealing with infertility: Letter to My Best Friend
And shared pictures and details about my awesome Mother's Day gift, a whole day and night out with my local bestie: Mud Runs and Mom Proms.

I also made a frame out of sticks we collected on a field trip for Cabin Boy #1's preschool teacher, knitted a bunch of baby gifts for my due date buddy's secret exchange present, jumped on the Baby Mugging bandwagon started by Mommy Shorts, updated the boys' mohawks, and took Cabin Girl rollerskating for the first time.

"Tonight, I decided that this is what it’s all about. We hold them close, we love them, rock them, sing to them, and suddenly one day they’re singing the songs themselves. Rocking their sisters in little rocking chairs, holding doll babies close. They’re copying the way we love, the way we live. "
