Upper twenties continue

  Another year older? Yes. Another year wiser? That’s debatable. Now that I am officially 27, I should probably officially stop shopping at Forever 21, reduce the amount I wear zebra print, pick up some anti-aging cream, and accept/admit that I literally cannot stay awake past 10 p.m. Just kidding, I’m happy to celebrate another…

Happy 4th!

            I hope you were able to enjoy your holiday celebrating the good ol’ US of A. (And I hope all of your fingers are still accounted for!) We didn’t take a lot of photos, but we had a nice day spent in town. Even though this is now our third summer living in Richfield, this was…

About this “Top Mommy Blogs” business

  So, sometime in April, this blog was added to the Top Mommy Blogs directory.  And I did not really explain what that meant. At all. I’ll explain it now: Top Mommy Blogs is a free directory of popular mom blogs with reviews and ratings by readers. The site also contains a community forum for moms & mom bloggers. There…

Hey, beautiful!

  Last year, when Cece turned one, we were so lucky to get her one-year photos done on her actual birthday, which I thought was super cool.

I can’t thank everyone enough for the kind words, thoughts, and…

A Few Words of Thanks

Since I may not post on Thanksgiving day, I just wanted to make a little mention of the things I am so very thankful for this year:   I am thankful for my handsome husband. He still gives me a hug and a kiss every day he comes home from work. He cracks me up…

Pinterested?

I know I’m late to the party, but I just got my behind on the pinterest bandwagon. Holy buckets. Where was this pinning business when I was wedding planning? Or pregnant? Or house hunting? Gah! So, now I keep staying awake far past my bedtime PINNING on my little boards! For clothes, recipes, home improvement ideas, baby things, etc…

2011 was pretty good to us

What. A. Year. LOTS of babies born. Lots of changes. So many good memories. Here’s a few of my favorites: I kicked off the year with trying to be as busy as possible while five months pregnant by taking on an editorial internship at Minnesota Monthly while working full-time at American Girl. I have no…
