Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one. After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,… Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
Over the weekend, Cece turned SIX! We celebrated by hosting two parties on Saturday (school friends first at the park and then cousins and family over to our house after). The weather was windy and chilly, but that’s the risk you take throwing an outdoor party in April! Fortunately, all of the kids stayed in very good spirits.… Continue reading Happy 6th Birthday, Cece!
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
With this wintry weather in full effect, I am eagerly anticipating warmer days and upcoming spring celebrations. (Not that wearing a dozen winter items each isn’t a blast, but I’m absolutely longing for the day where the girls and I can slip on flip flops and be out the door in 30 seconds as opposed to the 30… Continue reading Baby Shower Invitations for Girls (and a giveaway with Paperless Post!)
I hope your new year is off to a bangin’ start! (I was in bed by 10 pm on New Year’s Eve and I wouldn’t have it any other way.) I’ve been scheming and dreaming of ways to make this new year great and I’m hoping to record most of it here. As per usual… Continue reading 2016 in Review
Christmas felt pretty darn special this year. It was our first holiday celebrating in our new home (glad Santa was able to figure out that we moved!) and it was also the last Christmas we will be spending as a family of four. Lots of emotions and excitement across the board. Joe also magically… Continue reading Christmas 2016
Well, hi! It’s been nearly two months since my last post. (As you can see, the above photo is from late summer when Target still thought kids carts were a good idea.) We’ve been staying busy with all things fall and adjusting to Cece’s life in kindergarten. I’ve been taking lots of family pictures and even shot two weddings… Continue reading ALL the things!
After a morning of shopping and eating in Stillwater, the birthday fun continued on a cruise on the St. Croix! We had a dinner of BBQ ribs and got to enjoy sitting on the different decks, taking in the view, and looking out for mermaids, of course. (This is not a photo of the boat… Continue reading I’m on a boat!
My twenties are a thing of the past! If the last couple days are any indication of how this next decade is going to go, I say bring it. (Though I may need to pencil in more naps for myself…) My mom, sister, my mom’s friend Denise and her daughter Jessica all came up to Minnesota/Wisconsin… Continue reading This is 30!
Cece turned five today! One whole hand! Just months away from starting kindergarten and one more year closer to being able to vote. It’s no exaggeration that they grow up so fast. Five is going to be a fantastic year from her, I can feel it! We celebrated the occasion by having a family party at… Continue reading Happy 5th Birthday, Cece!
