You may have heard that someone is turning six very soon! We’re onto all sorts of big kids things including finally getting the hang of riding a bike with no training wheels. We’ve dabbled in taking them off before (but then have always put them back on). Over the weekend, however, our neighbors passed down… Continue reading A Two-Wheelin’ Sensation!
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.” – Stephen King Though I’ve been trying to be ruthless in decluttering and minimizing our belongings in our home this spring, there… Continue reading Raising Booklovers… and a giveaway with Usborne!
Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways. Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we… Continue reading Easter 2017
I’m happy to say that we’ve been out and about these past couple weekends and trying out a few new (to us) places. Now that it’s April and getting a little warmer, I don’t really think I can claim hibernation as my favorite pastime anymore. We recently went to the Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul for… Continue reading Out and About
Hello! It’s spring! (Or so I’m told. I’ll believe it when I see it/feel it/stop shivering/see the sun/etc.) We are only about six weeks away from welcoming baby no. 3 which means that I have been tired, scatterbrained, and not really blogging. (But I totally think about blogging all the time… that counts for something,… Continue reading March via iPhone
” A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.” Hello from Monday! Whether your weekend was productive, relaxing, or just plain busy, I hope you enjoyed it! Ours was a mixture of all those things. However, on Sunday Joe had work and it was my day to be home with the ladies. We stayed in our… Continue reading Sundays are for baking, art projects, and PJs!
Hi there! It feels good to be inching towards the end of winter and to start breaking out of hibernation. A couple weeks ago, we took an impromptu four-day trip to Wisconsin Dells. My sister even joined us for part of the vacation which made it extra wonderful. She’s also the reason we even have any… Continue reading Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)
Hello! I hope your Valentine’s Day is off to a wonderful start. I love any excuse for treat-making, card-sending, chocolate-eating, and decorating so I’ve always been pro-Valentine’s Day. This morning I snuck out of bed early to make Joe breakfast so he could wake up to the smell of bacon without burning his foot (Michael Scott, anyone?)… Continue reading My Valentines!
If you want to book a time to hang out with Rosie and Cece, you’ll have to do that weeks in advance because their social calendar has been booming as of late (mostly because of Joe). Last weekend he took each of the girls on a date to the location of their choice. Both girls… Continue reading So Many Dates!
Good morning! Have you found yourself as joyful as Rosie in a swing on a snowy day? (Me neither. Because January, right?) Although it is currently the coldest and crummiest part of winter, my heart is still warm and fuzzy from the holidays and my recent road trip home to Chicago to see family. Below are some… Continue reading Life Lately via iPhone
