What I Never Knew About Cord Blood Banking

I’m expecting my fourth baby and don’t think I could accurately answer the question, “What is cord blood banking?” I mean, I know it has to do with birth and there is prep work beforehand in regards to signing up and talking to your OB or midwife about the actual event, but to give you […]

Building News!

We think we have found property to build on! A quaint little acre with trees and a peek at the port. Everything is so “maybe” with it all … until it’s not, I guess. Which is exactly why Dominic is begging me to be just hesitantly excited. But I can’t help it. I’M EXCITED! We’ve been […]

Staycations Rock!

We’re back from our staycation which means >>> laundry and home days alllllll this week! Knowing that I’d be in my third trimester this summer we didn’t plan any grandiose adventures. Just a trip back to our hometown. When we discussed summer plans all the kids wanted was to go to their favorite summer camp. […]

This + That

It’s the weekend! Cheers! We’re packing up for a week away from home … I’m taking the kids back to our old town for their favorite summer camp and crashing with my mom and sister while there. I CANNOT wait to make the rounds on all my favorite restaurants. I know, I know, I sound […]

What Kind of OREO Creations Are In Your Dreams?

Oh, OREO! Not only are you a family favorite in your original form, you’re a ginormous winner when it comes to inspiring creativity. I’m no OREO history expert (just a Walmart shopper who got a glimpse of all the amazing choices currently available), but I think the OREO timeline went something like this … regular OREOs, […]

Everything You Need For an Impromptu Adventure

My sister and brother-in-law just moved home from Texas. Cue all the cheering! They spent the last week with us and we made it our mission to share many of our favorite spots as a welcome back to the Northwest type of staycation. Nothing like trooping around with 3 kids and a pregnant sister to […]

Style File — Heat Wave

September babies mean one thing … a summer filled with the third trimester and massive efforts to stay cool.  And, I’m really, really good when it comes to complaining about the heat. Like, if my lamenting wasn’t so annoying, I could probably win some kind of award for all the heat-hating reasons I think on a […]

Annual Mother’s Day Interview

I know Mother’s Day was a good month or so ago, but I totally forgot about posting our annual interview. And, what’s a month late in the long run? Nothin’ absolutely nothin’! For Mother’s Day we went to the Pacific Science Center, but shortly after Mother’s Day I took the kids to the zoo. That was our just […]

Tres Leche Cake

Tres Leches Cake

Why is it that pregnancy cravings are always unattainable? I knew I was in trouble when I felt a hankering for Chuy’s Tres Leches Cake. Because Chuy’s is no where close to me. Like, when I searched, to see if a road trip was feasible, I discovered that the closest Chuy’s was almost 2,000 miles […]
