So winter has come barging in on fall’s territory with quite the attitude! I’m deeming the merge of the two seasons as “finter.” (I’ve checked. It’s a thing. Or at least a hashtag) The above photo was taken the day after Halloween. Nice, right? Even though low temps and the occasional snow have kind of… Continue reading “Finter” Fun
I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year. Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All
Hi, friends! Last Monday was Halloween and our first time trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. And O M Goodness. What fun the girls had and what an impressive candy haul they brought home! (Thanks, girls!) Cece wanted a mermaid costume this year and Rosie was excited to be Elena of Avalor. The girls let me… Continue reading Halloween 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!
Back in October I sought out matching sweater dresses and big ol’ headbands as we had our first official photo shoot as a family of four done by Ashley Partch. ^^^I felt this excited about it.^^^ However, I was even more excited after I viewed our images. I take pictures of my own children all… Continue reading Fall Family Pictures
Thanksgiving weekend was a three-part deal that is now over. It’s probably a good thing. At the rate we were going, we would have to get rid of any pants with buttons or zippers. We spent Thanksgiving Day in low-key fashion. Joe and I took the kids to Good Times Park Thanksgiving morning and came… Continue reading Thankfulness
Before the whole world boards the Christmas train, I need to at least post about Halloween (which was almost two weeks ago now!) I made the last minute decision to run the Monster Dash half marathon the morning of Halloween. (By last minute, my sis-in-law had offered her bib to me a week before the race and… Continue reading Back on Halloween…
Did you get out and enjoy that 72 degree November day? You better have. I feel like I haven’t been my most fabulous self lately due to several reasons (diet changes, dental work, shorter, colder days, etc.) So this unexpected warm weather felt like a gift. The girls and I ran several errands, but made… Continue reading Sweet November
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!
This week, Cece and I boarded a big yellow school bus with her teachers and classmates and had a delightful morning at Minnetonka Orchards. I took very similar photos with my phone as last year! Kind of fun to compare though. We did not pick apples, but we did go on a hayride, listened to… Continue reading Apple Orchard Field Trip 2015
