It's TIME to take a BREAK
by: Kel Amstutz    *July 11, 2016


Hi All!

It's KEL here. 

I know...I know... L O N G time... no post. 

I'm sorry!  

It's been hectic trying to juggle!  

And it's SUMMER and the first one in a LONG time that I have had with the kiddos!

So, it is time for an ANNOUNCEMENT:


It is time for a much needed break

Who knew keeping three (3) blogs would be so hectic? 

Plus...I have this little gig... you know... this J O B that I call being MOM and all!  

I have tons of things filtering through my mind right now...how I can regroup, reface, redo my blog




I have had a BLAST putting Life at Gray Gables into motion and keeping it chalked full of content, but let's face it...it is kind of...OK if you must, totally A-D-D and really ALL OVER THE PLACE!






I mean, WHAT IS Life at Gray Gables anywhoo?
A lady who loves BOOKS, RECIPES, FAMILY- sure... but what does that REALLY have to do with GRAY GABLES? 

YUP...this is where I am at!  

So what if it has taken about four (…

I AM BATMOM...with a HULKED OUT Oreo Junkie... apparently!

Truer words could not be spoken...  as my 5 year old decided to throw down in the checkout line at the store and  WAIL  about how MAD she was and how HUNGRY she was...  I mean... ON THE BRINK OF DEATH... i fear...  and that snack (OREOS) was what she  "NEEDED RIGHT NOW..." ‪#‎hulkedout‬ as I calmly... (maybe a little in my BATMAN voice) reminded her that we were headed to grab dinner  as soon as we were done CHECKING OUT!!!

20 Books You NEED to Read This SpringBy: Kelley Amstutz 05/12/2016

I am a BOOK LOVER. 
It's not a secret. I just found a gift card for Barnes and Nobles...no idea WHEN I received this GC, but I went to load it to my account and lone behold...I still had some $$ left...like just waiting there for me...seriously (I said to myself) WHAT!!! So, this called for SHOPPING (duh!) and that lead to books...books...and more books.  I love real deal, hard bound books, but with this FREE MONEY...I got a variety (say what?) and now I have books stacked on my nook app....like there weren't before my free money shopping spree, right!  And there are now books stacked (like STACKED) on my nightstand, which has lead to HUBBY asking me when I am finding the TIME to read all these GEMS.  This leads to the depression part of LIFE....NOT ENOUGH TIME TO READ... (WAH)

Oh well... I can't stop the #obsession.  The struggle... oh yea...ITS REAL!!!

So, of course, I had to put together my LIST of MUST RE…

One FISH...Two FISH... Three FISH... FOUR....

Yesterday was a busy, crazy, fanatically magicalday for one birthday girlas she made her way to FIVE! 





She went to Pre-K, where she helped her teachers make a birthday crown!  







I picked her up and whiskered her back home for lunch- nutella in the shape of a HEART...of course! 

While she was at school, this Mom snuck in to grab a HUGE Minnie Mouse balloon to SURPRISE her when we made our way back home after school...and it WORKED! 

She was so gosh, darn excited for the balloon...that honestly, we have had before for one of the other four birthdays she has had that has been MINNIE...just saying!

OK- so we ate lunch...then Daddy got up and we headed to the PET STORE.  All she knew was that we had an important errand to run and she would leave HAPPY.

Hey...it worked!

But, said Pet Store did NOT have what we needed- unfortunately

So off to Wally-world we go...because they have EVERYTHING..don't ya know
