Today, the girls were the epitome of winter fashion and function as we tested out their new ponchos from our favorite new small business Tinley. We ended up getting so many compliments while we were out today that I figured a blog post was necessary in case anyone else wants to get in on this cold… Continue reading Poncho Pals!
Last week may have been the most relaxing week of winter. With Cece out of school, Christmas being over, and no more planned activities we got to finally just relax at home instead of running around and enjoy the snow that had finally fallen. As you can see, we took the girls sledding a few… Continue reading Sledding and Snowmen
What a holiday season it has been! I can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas (and I REALLY can’t believe my shopping is done and holiday cards are out.) Below is the second half of my alleged“12 Dates of Christmas.” Date #7: Christmas Tree Shopping! Ok, so we actually have a perfectly sized artificial tree at home.… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part II)
Last year, a few bloggers that I follow were writing their versions of the “12 Dates of Christmas.” Many were actually going on 12 Christmas-themed dates with their significant other during December and taking magazine-quality pics to include in their posts. I think it would be seriously impressive if Joe and I were able to… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part I)
It’s March!!! I swear I could smell dirt outside today, and not to be weird, but I think it’s an even better smell than fresh flowers after months of winter. Below are some iPhone photos from the last couple weeks of February: We had our first time at Chuck E. Cheese we… Continue reading Almost spring! (via iPhone)
I present to you a very random assortment of photos from my phone from the past couple of weeks. As indicated above, February has been a delightful excuse to make indulgent food due to Valentine’s Day and a few ladies nights. A couple of weekends ago, my fabulous neighbor and I hosted a wine… Continue reading February ’14 via iPhone
Typically January is a tough month. As a stay-at-home parent, I usually bundle up, hunker down, resort to indoor activities, inhale large portions of hearty comfort, and wish that I lived some place where the air doesn’t hurt my face. I am going on record to say that this January has not been bad. Frightfully cold for a few… Continue reading January
One last post about 2014… The day after Christmas, the girls and I headed up north to spend a few days at Joe’s parents’ cabin with the rest of his family. Unfortunately, Joe couldn’t come with us due to work, but I like to think that the girls and I did a good job representing.… Continue reading Cabin Christmas 2014
Merry Christmas! (Or “Merry Craziness” as Cece said today. She has uttered a lot of gems this holiday season, including “Rosie is my reindeer!” And also “Is Santa bringing MORE presents tonight?” Good times.) Today felt special as we celebrated our first Christmas as a family of four. It was also the first time we spent Christmas… Continue reading Merry Christmas (2014)!
Last week Cece and I went on a very memorable date to her first open skate! I had been going by myself recently, just to stretch out these old legs. Then she told me that she wanted to come along and there was no way I could refuse that request. Fortunately, my brother was able… Continue reading Cece on ice!
