livefreemiranda I've never seen two kids more thrilled about anything than these two about the free soda at movie night. Granted, the selection of flavors was pretty awesome. 🍋 9h
  •   livefreemiranda that photo doesn't do their excitement justice. This is what they looked like:😛. Both are now tucked into bed with sugar comas. Summer. 8h

livefreemiranda Experimenting with the underwater phone case my mom gave to Dave for Father's Day. Mostly caught adorable blurry baby legs, and then a couple gems. Next time I'll try wearing goggles so I can see what's in the frame. 11h
  •   emilyforthewin Lifeproof?? That's what I have! It's fun. 11h
  •   zaneandlexi Just got a lifeproof case too - fun fun! 10h

livefreemiranda Nothing like midnight sewing! We made summer dresses AND relived our high school dancing glory days all at the same time. 1d

livefreemiranda Today was SUMMER! Swimming, jumping, sewing, Legos, naps, plant shopping (I bought some trees!), then burgers, corn and watermelon on the patio, and we're having mango cream floats for dessert. These are the days. #alfrescoallthetime 1d

livefreemiranda I made pillows for the couch. Refashioned them from a dress that I liked, but was only half-committed to because it was a maternity make. After years of sewing, anything made of cloth appears to me to be just material for whatever project I may think of. It's kind of nice to be able to see past what IS to what COULD BE. (Too deep for a pillow post?) 2d
  •   bgwittwer I'm with @ivylarsen, that's an awesome couch! And the pillows are great! 2d
  •   elizaconn Looks great! 2d
  •   familyeverafter Not too deep for a pillow post... In fact I loved the pillow talk! 2d
  •   agirlyouknow Love your couch! The pillows look great... 2d
  •   silwin Love the cute boy in the picture! 2d
  •   marenellen I'd say your couch is definitely benefitting from your seamstress brain waves. Love it! 2d
  •   emzlyhamilton So cute!! Love them. 19h
  •   lmtblogs Not too deep, I love it! 16h

livefreemiranda Preschool summer camp was a good idea. For two weeks the boys get to learn and play, and I get to hang with Plum and work on projects. Like replacing the hooks on the backpack rack. #andersonsbuildahouse 3d

  •   echecchio Totally had that cabbage patch premie! 3d

livefreemiranda I bought a patio set on craigslist for $100 (it has potential...) Now we can #alfrescoallthetime without moving chairs in and out. Tonight we're eating a Summer Chop Salad: bacon, cucumber, cold grilled chicken, watermelon, red onion and goat cheese over arugula with coconut lime dressing. Also, buttered toast. 4d

livefreemiranda Milo's new normal is much quieter than usual. Also, I don't take my shoes off at home anymore. 5d
  •   livefreemiranda @carissamiss smart! Too bad Texas doesn't come with basements. 4d
  •   livefreemiranda @zaneandlexi Grandma AND Legos? That is heaven! 4d
  •   aman_der Cute bunks! Ikea and painted? 4d
  •   ivylarsen Did you paint the bunks green? Love the color (obviously) and considering painting some for our boys but not sure about bunks for their room (since it has a ceiling fan). 4d
  •   livefreemiranda @aman_der @ivylarsen yep! Ikea bunk, spray painted. Which also (accidentally) painted almost all of my garage with a light dusting. Oops! 4d
  •   aman_der I'm doing the same this week! Although I think I'm doing red :) I like the ikea one because it's shorter than others I've looked at. The price doesn't hurt either! cute cute room! Is the rug west elm? I've been eyeing one like that from there :) any rug shopping suggestions? 4d
  •   livefreemiranda @aman_der Thanks Amanda! FYI took about 8 cans:) Yes, west elm rug. I almost always buy my rugs at the outlet! When I go with a clear idea of what I want, I have good luck. Sometimes it takes a couple trips... 4d

livefreemiranda After hanging this blanket in the boys' room, I feel like it's finally coming along! I still need to frame some of their art, reupholster the chair, hang a roman shade, and add a basket for books. #andersonsbuildahouse 5d

livefreemiranda Potty training round three with this guy. The introduction of LEGO incentives may be a game changer. 7d
  •   greymoggie Elsie declared that she is giving all of her cloth diapers to her BFF's new little bro. Next week. I guess we're potty training? Better get some Legos :) good luck with your little Mr. 7d
  •   lindsayrosander Let me know if it helps!!! I'm ready to cry!!! Round 3 for us as well!!! 7d
  •   livefreemiranda @ivylarsen I'm actually not sure that E IS ready, but it seems time. We'll see if he's diaper-free in Tahoe. 7d
  •   livefreemiranda @greymoggie haha! Hey, if she's ready, let her go for it! Milo was ready so much earlier than this, so I'm sort of halfway pushing...today has been okay:) 7d
  •   livefreemiranda @lindsayrosander hands down worst part of parenting. That and babyfood. Ha! 7d
  •   namylangley Yes it is a nightmare. I hope this time around is better. 6d
  •   kjsalty Every kid has been COMPLETELY different and ready at totally different ages for me. 31/2, 2 and almost 3. Good luck!! 6d

livefreemiranda I've been waiting for THIS girl in THIS swimsuit on THIS day since last year when I bought it (at 13 weeks pregnant, hoping for a girl.) Happy Independence Day! #lilmissplum 1w

livefreemiranda Repotting Day! After four months my original eight succulent plants are now more than twenty. These are quite literally the ONLY plants I have ever kept alive, let alone propagated. There may be hope for my yard! #growgreenthumb 1w
  •   sewcaroline I love succulents!!!! 1w
  •   murandabarker I need to chat with you about this! Currently, my succulents are the only plant I am NOT keeping alive. It become very frustrating for me 😬 1w
  •   amieglauser So cool! We need a blog tutorial 1w
  •   kidgiddy That's awesome! Maybe there is hope for me. Lol. 1w
  •   danamadeit Are you back??? 1w
  •   marenellen I agree with @amieglauser. You need to share your green thumb tips. Our yard backs up against a nursery and the thee day the lady from the nursery leaned over my fence and mentioned that my tree was dying. I can take all the help I can get! 1w
  •   livefreemiranda @danamadeit yep! Let's play! 7d
  •   livefreemiranda @murandabarker I only water about 1/4c per plant every 1-2 weeks! They love to be dry, which works for me, since I forget:) 7d

livefreemiranda I welcomed myself home by deep cleaning every inch of my house. I am now feeling deeply satisfied and acutely grateful for the gift of owning a home that we love. #andersonsbuildahouse 1w
