Doing — A lot of decluttering. I mean, when am I not? Are you plagued by this ongoing project too? Tonight I sorted through our entire homeschool room bookshelf and tomorrow is Jem’s bookshelf. We love books, but the shelves are brimming. Annoyingly so. Watching — The Good Doctor. I’m all about doctor shows. This week has been full […]

Hazelnut Ricotta Pancakes

hazelnut ricotta pancakes

Big fan of pancakes here. I have a staple recipe, but every now and again I’m out of one ingredient or another and have to be creative. Sometimes, that creativity is magic and today, that magic is called hazelnut ricotta pancakes. Lordy, lordy, these were divine! Are divine. Totally making them again. And, sharing the recipe […]

Jem and I went on a girl date with some friends to paint pottery the other week and on our way back to the car she insisted that we take a few photos of each other because “we don’t have boys to wrestle”. She was SO right. Going out with just an almost eight year old is […]

Doing — An Instagram sale. Prep for my sister’s bridal shower – eek! Wallpapering. Summer is always full of such random projects! Watching — I can’t even remember the last time I watched a TV show. The summer line up isn’t my jam. I did watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on Netflix though … […]

August family pic

Would you look at that ^^^ everyone looking the same direction! I think it’s our first family photo like that since adding Eli … only took 10 1/2 months! Just ignore Reid’s fierce + mean mug. He was beyond annoyed that I took his thumb out of his mouth and asked him to smile. Gosh […]

Let’s Talk About Postpartum Skin

lash boost lashes

As much as I love sharing about pregnancy and birth, I think I most love finding camaraderie in the postpartum phase of motherhood.  Pregnancy is a little less than a year, birth, in the best circumstances, is less than a day, but postpartum? It lasts forever! Once you have a baby, you’re always postpartum!  During […]

My big kids are away at camp this week. I cannot deal. How are they old enough to leave for so long? Granted, it’s just day camp and they’re with their aunt in the evenings. But still, I’m a ball of anxious energy waiting to get them back in my arms! Also, that big guy […]

Play Room Magnet Board

Have you seen all the darling magnet sets in Target’s Dollar Spot? Technically they’re $3 … but still, not a bad deal! I grabbed a car set, a space set, and a princess/unicorn set for my kids and then realized that our fridge is the only magnet surface in the house. Tiny problem, because, as […]

Summer is here!  I mean, not technically, but for our family because the school year wrapped up this week. We’re loving the sunshine, the longer days, popsicles, park visits, and sleeping in. Jokes. No one is sleeping in here. We have been napping well lately though. Slower days with less to dos allow that. And […]
