The Little Mermaid, Retro Dog, and a Pi(e) Day Celebration // A Wrap Up

March 20, 2017

Yesterday, after staring at my planner for what seemed like hours, I was amazed to see that we’re nearing the end of March. Amazed because it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Remy Bea’s first birthday — but it was two whole months ago! Every single day with little kids feels like the.longest.day.ever. Everyday […]

That time I decided not to post about Remy Bea turning 11 months.

January 10, 2017

Guys, I’ve had a draft for Remy Bea’s 11 month update in process for, like, weeks. And… well, I just can’t. Because other than her being a lot more mobile as of late, not much has changed. Actually, here’s what has changed since her 10 month update: She is eating even more than before, which […]

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 […]

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! […]

Thirty-Two //

October 8, 2016

Ohhhh, thirty-two! To think… not long ago I was terrified of turning 30. Now? Now I embrace my age! Even though the last several [okay… many…] birthdays ‘meant’ nothing, I was still somehow hung up on getting a year older. And even though this years birthday came and went without fanfare, there was something extra […]

Weekend Wrapup //

September 27, 2016

Guys! [Yes, I realize I start a LOT of blog posts with “guys!” But, to be fair? I actually say that a  LOT in real life.] This weekend was mostly the bomb dot com. Let’s recap, shall we? Saturday was set to be such a wonderful day, weatherwise. I mean, perfection of Fall. For serious. […]

Our Story of One Random Act of Kindness //

September 21, 2016

I like to keep it really real on this here blog. And in the spirit of doing so, I have to admit something to you — I know that in the grand scheme of worldly problems? Ours don’t even rank. Yes. Even though I’ve bitched and moaned about Remy since, well, I was pregnant with […]

This weekend was a freaking roller coaster. Friday night Chad and I went on our second date since Remy was born. It was really nice. And super nice of a dear friend to watch the kiddos while we went out. But guess what? Our “date” was only an hour long — and not for lack […]

Preschool // The First 2 Weeks

September 16, 2016

We did it! We made it through the first two weeks of preschool. I was worried I would be a wreck. I was worried he would be a wreck. I was worried we would be all worn out by noon. It turns out none of that was true. I mean it. It’s weird. The first […]
