weekend wrap up //

April 14, 2015

Friday  // After a long day at work and a long day at the sitter for Moosh, we wound up at our favorite local indoor play place, Café O’Play, to try and burn off whatever energy he had left. He had fun, but that quickly turned into a meltdown. So we headed home thinking the […]

get crafty // alternative easter crafts

April 3, 2015

Easter in our house is a touchy subject. First of all, we don’t really *do* Easter. I mean, we do; we just don’t the church part. Because — surprise — we’re not churchy people. [PS. Let’s not get into the thick of it. It’s OK if you are; we just aren’t.] Also? Moosh has an […]

a much needed girls night // wine + canvas

January 27, 2015

Yesterday was downright awful in most ways. I was up all night Sunday with a stomach thing, courtesy of a gone-bad batch of sour cream (ugh). And then I spent the whole day with the bathroom door open + a toddler that kept yelling “Mommy – Osckie messy!” about the dog as I was incapacitated […]

Cafe O’ Play // Review

January 25, 2015

I always look forward to my Fridays off with Moosh. Monday through Thursday we both struggle to get ourselves out of bed, get dressed and head off to our respective duties — mine, work; his, the sitter. He always seems so clingy during the week. Like he knows he can pull on my heartstrings by […]

Post-Holiday Update //

January 4, 2015

I’m finally over the flu! It’s been a rough seven to 10 days of it, but I’m officially over it! And since our house was riddled with illness over the holidays, I decided to keep life as low-key as possible. And it has been marvelous! Our post-Christmas life has been a buzz with the excitement […]

weekend wrap up // Holiday Flea 2014

November 26, 2014

This past week has been one of the most challenging weeks of my life (for reasons I’d prefer to not get in to). But this weekend something magical happened. I SURVIVED. Okay. So that may seem dramatic; but it’s true. Friday Moosh and I had a playdate; but before we made it to our playdate […]
