Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

I keep getting more and more behind with this whole blogging thing, now I’m slicing November and December in the middle of January! But I’m glad to review the last too months regardless. Maybe this year I can come up with a schedule I can make happen.
.6 – Pounds gained
1 – Book read, Crossed by Ally Condie

48 – More rolls for Christmas. I had more than I needed for dinner, so I asked my kids if they minded if I shared some of the extra rolls with my team members at work. One of kiddos said, “No, we can eat 30 rolls.”

Now that I’ve survived December and have a year of months sliced under my belt for 2013, I’m trying to wrap my head around the New Year. I’m still wrestling with setting my goals for this year so I can move forward and successfully slice another year’s worth of months.
I’ve got the tree up, decorated it yesterday, and there’s even gifts under it thanks to my mother in law. But it still doesn’t feel like December. Maybe if I mentally slice November that will help! It didn’t work great last month, but I’ll try again.
.2 – Pounds gained in November. (I’m blaming it on Thanksgiving and White Chocolate Pretzel Cookies.)
2 – Days at Time Out for Women. It was a nice getaway!
4 – Articles written, including Top 3 Toddler Gift Ideas featuring my grandson!
5 – Christmas movies watched. Isn’t that one of the best parts of Christmas?
6 – Projects completed (7 if you count the one I crossed of my list without doing it).
12 – Blog posts written.
15 – Pounds of turkey cooked on Thanksgiving. He was so cute and kind of little for our family.
48 – Rolls made for Thanksgiving dinner.
50 – States that visited my blog.
