Plan The Perfect Birthday Party // Minions !

May 9, 2017

When I planned Ari’s third birthday party, I scoured the web for inspiration. He was dead set on having a Minions party. Admittedly, Minions isn’t my favorite movie. But who’s to argue with a (nearly) three year old?? Not I, friends! In my quest for party inspiration, Ari rewatched Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and […]

Remy Bea’s Winter ONEderland //

January 25, 2017

Monday my last baby had her first birthday. I know! I still can’t believe it! Well, over the weekend we celebrated little Miss Bea turning the big O-N-E with a small party. (Note: It was really hard for me to throw a small party. We just don’t know how to do “small” parties in my family! […]

Fall Weekends, Travels, + Birthdays //

October 26, 2016

We took a little trip to Columbus to see my sister over last weekend (like, a week ago…). Chad had not yet our new nephew, Brennen, and my sister had some stuff coming up which made me want to visit her even more! So Saturday morning we packed up the car (way more than we needed […]

Dear Ari // Happy Birthday

October 16, 2016

Dear Ari, I’m not going to say something cliché about the years flying by; because, honestly, as quickly as they do, the days sure are long, dude. I have to say this though — Going from being a self-proclaimed “never-going-to-have-kids” chick, to finding out I was pregnant with you? That rocked my world. Your daddy […]

Ari’s Birthday Parties // a look back

October 11, 2016

I try not to be one of these “pinterest moms;” I try not to perpetuate the idea that everything must be ‘worthy’ of sharing. I mean, I think I do a pretty good job of keeping the balance and showing people that I’m real, but sometimes I like to pinterest the crap outta things! Ha! […]

Bye, Felicia!

October 4, 2016

Today is my last day as a 31 year old. And this is what I have to say: GOOD, FREAKIN’, RIDDANCE! I was determined — DETERMINED — to have an awesome year. I was knee-deep in hyperemesis with Remy and certain — just certain — that things were about to turn around. Newsflash: It didn’t.  […]

Happy Birthday //

May 19, 2016

Last week my husband celebrated a birthday. Not a ‘milestone,’ but a birthday, nonetheless. And I? I had a blog post half written (which I later discarded, because it was nonsense made of half-written sentences) and a toddler that just wouldn’t cooperate. But we ended up recovering the whole situation. We had really awesome-ish birthday. […]

Ari’s 3rd Birthday //

November 3, 2015

Well, it’s only been TWO WEEKS since Ari’s birthday. To say I’m slacking would be an understatement. Although can you really blame me? I’ve been bouncing from doctor appointment to doctor appointment, dragging a toddler along, and throwing up along the way (sometimes quite literally). So yeah. There have been “delays,” one would say. But […]

happy 3rd birthday, baby boy!

October 16, 2015

As I sit here and write this on the eve of Ari’s third (!!!) birthday, and the third anniversary of the most horrific + agonizing night of my life, I’m in complete shock. When this post goes live Friday morning, my sweet little baby boy is going to be a three-year old KID. I’m struggling […]

it was a good day.

October 7, 2015

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes Monday. I ended up being rather sick and only sleeping for 2 hours the night before, but I made the most of it. Lack of sleep and getting sick all night sure made for an interesting morning…  Buuuut I got my butt outta bed and got a […]
