6 Months

Those eyes. Those cheeks. Those pouty lips. I seriously cannot get enough of this girl. My friend, Jenni, let me sneak over to her studio with my camera and take some pictures of our littlest bean. It was my first time hooking up my camera to studio lights and I loved it! It really made me itch for my own photography studio one day. Of course I only got through 2 poses before Bella was done with...

Easy, Fun & Nut-Free Halloween Themed Lunch

Remember that healthy halloween snack idea roundup I did a few days ago? I thought I would share my own fun Halloween themed lunch idea that I came up with for my kiddos. I wanted something that I could send to lunch with my first grader and kindergartner to school, so that meant it had to be nut-free. It also had to be something I could make up quickly that morning if I had to,...

The Best No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

These little bars have a special place in my heart. A few weeks after I had my newest baby, Bella, my older sister Wendy and her family came up to visit. Wendy had mentioned that my 12-year-old nephew, William, was really good at making no-bake Reese’s bars, so I happily supplied the ingredients and watched him do his magic. A few minutes later (we were too impatient to wait the whole hour that was recommended)...

The Day I Said Yes to Getting a Dog…

Jim is a dog person. His family are all dog lovers. They treat their dog as part of their family. They have conversations with them. They get them gifts. They take them on vacations. Dogs are indoor dogs that are well taken care of and loved. I, on the other hand, am not a dog person. I grew up with dogs as pets for most of my life, yet there are only a few that I...

Thoughts and Announcement Fun

Having a newborn has definitely made me realize that there are times when I want to be creative and do things on my own, and then there are times when I really need to rely on others. I have four children. This isn’t my first trip around the block. I know how recovery and things go, and generally know what to expect. This time around, however, has been rough. I am exhausted. I am overwhelmed....

She’s Here…

It’s a girl! Meet our newest little addition to our family. She’s finally here and we are drinking in every second of her newness. Can you believe feet can ever be that small? It’s still hard to believe that I am a mother of 4. I just can’t get enough of her. Please bare with me some more while I adjust to no sleep and the constant neediness of newborn life. Someday I will get back on my feet...

My Blogging Disappearance

Well, I’ve never been good at being a consistent blogger, but the last few months have been a bit of a blur for me and I’ve been worse then normal, I apologize. We have spent the last few months packing, job hunting, moving, job hunting, unpacking, job hunting more, finally finding a job, and moving again – this time far, far, far, far away from family. And yes, this last move pretty much broke my...
