Pinterest Fun, Plans Gone Awry, + a (Long) Overdue Haircut // A Weekend Wrap Up

March 7, 2017

You know those weekends that just restore your soul? Well, I had one of those weekends, friends. It also just so happened to be one of those weekends where I had “X-Y-and-Z” planned…. but all of it got nixed off the to-do list and we just improvised. Friday we had plans to go to the Great […]

Illness, Float Therapy, Yoga, and the Northside Market // Weekly Mantra

February 5, 2017

So last week I was all “this is going to be THE BEST week,” which is pretty much just tempting fate. And fate handed me about 50% of what I was expecting last week, and 50% of the unexpected. Win some, lose some, friends. Monday morning I woke up with a bit of a sore […]

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! […]

Crafty Mart // Explore + Shop Locally

December 7, 2016

Meeting Our Milestones With Little Tikes //

September 4, 2016

Getting excited over seemingly ‘small’ milestones was something I laughed at before having kids. But now? Now I rejoice in watching my kids grow and learn new things. Every parent does! And it’s totally NOT silly! Newborns grow and learn at such a rapid pace, it seems as if they’re developing and hitting major milestones […]

Weekend Wrap Up //

June 9, 2016

I mentioned yesterday that I got really sick on Friday afternoon. Truthfully, I was feeling a bit ‘off’ on Friday morning. I thought it was from just lack of sleep. Turns out, I had a ‘bug’ of sorts. I took both kids upstairs to my bed and turned on the TV. I thought if I […]

Life Lately // June 2016

June 3, 2016

This post originally started as a “weekend wrap up” … OVER A MONTH AGO! Like, I’m talking APRIL. But life just got extra busy and the sleep started to get even harder to come by. So I was failing at putting words into sentences. Heck, most of the time I’m still struggling to put logical sentences […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

April 14, 2016

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]

The Only Banana Bread Recipe You Will Ever Need

March 30, 2016

Since I lost my job in December (eek – still stings a little to say!) I’ve been upping my domesticity game in a major way. Not only have I been keeping myself on a ‘cleaning schedule’ [ugh — that sounds terribly domestic], but I’ve also been trying to stay on a meal schedule of some […]

life update

March 24, 2016

Since Remy Bea was born (you know… TWO months ago), life has been a roller coaster, which I’ve talked about. Extensively. Like, extensively. And this here blog has suffered the wrath of long days and nights… By the time I have a few moments to myself to sit down at my computer, I just stare at […]
