To liven up my blog life and to write about something not kid/baby related, I decided I’m going to do a short and sweet post each month called “Eat/Wear/Read” because no matter what I’ve got going on in life, I am a total enthusiast regarding food, fashion, and fiction (and sometimes non-fiction, but that doesn’t… Continue reading Eat/Wear/Read: April Edition
Why hello! I hope you are having a marvelous May! Today, I’m rounding up all my iPhone photos from April and getting them in the books/ on the interwebs.Springtime is birthday time around our house as March April and May are sprinkled with birthdays. Joe’s birthday was at the beginning of the month and… Continue reading All Things April 2018
Happy first birthday Ares! We celebrated our little man’s numero uno birthday yesterday with a Cinco de Mayo fiesta! I don’t think you can say you’ve experienced a truly crazy Cinco de Mayo until you have hosted a first birthday at your house for tons of little kids complete with cupcakes, a waterslide, and general… Continue reading Ares’s First Birthday Fiesta!
Over the weekend, we celebrated our oldest turning seven! We asked her how she wanted to celebrate (and we threw out some pretty cool options), and what she wanted most was a sleepover party. We kept it small (three friends, plus Rosie) and hosted rainbow birthday sleepover palooza. (We should have made t shirts)Jury… Continue reading Happy 7th Birthday, Cece!
Good morning and happy Sunday! It’s been awhile since I took out my camera and just snapped a few photos of my own kids around our house. So on Thursday morning I did just that. And then I made the photos black and white because black and white = artsy. And I really want all… Continue reading A Monochrome Morning
Hey everyone! We might (might) be almost finished muddling and shoveling our way through “spring.” It’s been so ridiculous, hasn’t it? Fortunately, you can still buy yourself bouquets of fresh flowers and wine, even when the weather is awful. I don’t fancy myself a complainer. But seriously. All I want to do is take these… Continue reading March Madness
Today we celebrated four years with our Rosie Posie! (Or Rosalicious as she sometimes refers to herself.) She dressed herself from head to toe today in a new outfit she picked out with a Target gift card. Only when I started uploading these photos did I realize that she somewhat resembles Rosie the Riveter… Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday, Rosie!
Three weeks ago we did a thing…After a few years of being critter-free and after much promising, groveling, and begging from the girls we filled out more paperwork than is necessary to buy a house and adopted a puppy from Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue. She came with the name Zuzu. She is some type of… Continue reading Introducing Zuzu
Hi there! We are two months into 2018 and for the most part, I’m liking it. It has been a lot of time indoors, a lot of shoveling (thanks, Joe!), washing off germs, and much cozying up by the fireplace. As it happens every year, I’m anxious to leave winter behind and move onto spring.… Continue reading Jan + Feb 2018
Yesterday Ares turned 9 months old! He is just a little dude living his best life. He put up with his crazy mama and was a total rockstar for his 9 month photo shoot yesterday afternoon. Getting him to smile at me was easy peasy because he’s such a happy little man. Wrestling his chubby… Continue reading Ares at 9 Months
