a much needed girls night // wine + canvas

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hey guess what? It’s been a WHOLE MONTH since my baby sister got married. And it means it’s been like a full month since I blogged. Buuut I’m getting back to it! Well, Moosh failed to fall asleep before the ceremony. Which means a 3-hour nap a day toddler was running on little sleep and […]

Life since my little sisters wedding a couple of weeks ago (and my 30th birthday the day after) have been craaaa-zeeeee! I’ve had several blog posts about her wedding festivities half-written in draft form. But I just haven’t had the energy to finish them. Life over the last week alone has been exhausting!
