Say Yes To Being a Match

As a SAHM it’s super easy to get stuck in my own little world.  For the most part, I’m healthy, my kids are healthy, and we’re living a pretty charmed life. But not everyone is. And God forbid, that might not always be our story. That’s one reason why I love social media. It really […]

This + That

IMG_6344

Jem and I are upping our art game. It’s calm and relaxing and we listen to Yo-Yo Ma or the Disney Legacy CD while we craft. The boys join in sometimes and other times we distract them with snacks so we can get creative in the quiet. This week it was watercolors and flower crowns. Next week? Well, we’re taking […]

Style File — This Is Everyday

IMG_5767

Whenever I post mama style photos I get the sweetest comments. And it makes me feel happy, of course. Who doesn’t like to hear that they’re pretty and pulled together and portraying pregnancy with grace?!? But are fancy, styled photos my everyday? No, not quite.

The Prince of Pouches

“Mooooom! Reid just squeezed his pouch and is painting with it! AND NOW IT’S IN HIS HAIR!” This is my life.

[…]

Once upon a time, if I remember correctly, my kids had monthly updates here on the blog. I don’t remember much anymore, but I did use the old fashion search bar and discover that Reid hasn’t had a personalized update since he was 10 months <<< look how short his hair was! *Mother walk of shame* Or, […]

Get Well Fun with Lamaze Toys

We’re home safe and sound from the hospital! Such a relief to this worried mama’s heart. Everything went just as planned and we’ll head back to Seattle for a follow up in about 6 weeks. I’m so thankful and even more happy that it was just a day surgery. Overnights in the hospital are so […]

On the Morning of Your Surgery

IMG_3170

I wrote this before Reid’s first surgery last Fall and now we’re gearing up for another one. Not on his thumb this time though, this round is with a urologist for a minor procedure, but the surgery sentiments are the same. I’ll never get over my mix of love and hate for this process. So thankful that […]
