High five! We made it through 2017! This past year has been brought to you by large cups of coffee and sizable glasses of wine (I mean, consumed responsibly and all, because nursing). It’s been a crazy and eventful year in the world and also in our home. I hope you were able to find… Continue reading So long, 2017!
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
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
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
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
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
The wedding festivities have officially been kicked off! This weekend I traveled (solo!) to Illinois to help throw a classy Mexican beach themed shower for my sister and her fiance. Thank you all so much to everyone who came and helped celebrate such a silly, special, (and ridiculously good-looking) couple. I know deep in my… Continue reading Showering Robbyn & Jay!
Hey, all! It’s been a couple weeks since a post, but I’m happy to report that life is good and January is almost over! Is that glass-half-full thinking or what? Our activities were low-key during the middle of this month. We only got out of our PJs when it was truly necessary. Like when we… Continue reading Snow, Snuggles, and Swimming
Over the weekend, I put on my brave face, packed up our van, guzzled some Dunkin’ and embarked on a brief, crazy, and FUN trip to see my family in Chicago. Nothing gets done without this stuff. ^^^ After Cece finished school on Friday, I drove myself and the girls to Wisconsin Dells. Even though… Continue reading A road trip, a wedding, and so much sister love!
Well, fancy seeing you here again! Through no fault of my own (just kidding), this has been a summer of massive technological failure and blogging got moved to the back burner for a good long time. Finally our computer is fully functional, my shattered iPhone has been replaced, and I’ve got my blogging pants on.… Continue reading Summer days drifting away…
