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

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 […]

Goldfish Munch Mix for Family Movie Night

You know how some families have really specific traditions? Yeah, we’re not one of them. We’re more random. There is no Friday night pizza here or donuts before church every Sunday. In fact, we’re about to get real crazy and switch things up with Saturday night church. I don’t even bathe the kids on a […]

If This Is Home

I shared this on Instagram the other week after one of our “searching for property” drives that have become our Saturday morning tradition as of late. Along with a Starbucks americano with extra steamed cream and 2 pumps white mocha and 2 pumps cinnamon dolce (so so good, try it!). It’s so fun and so […]

Chicagoland

Recap time! February was, well, all the crazy hashtags. It’s mid-March now and I still feel like I’m recovering — the move, Reid’s RSV, my first trimester, (blah!), then, Chicago! That was the good part. Seeing family. Running away from real life. Eating good food. We’re home now (obviously), settling in to somewhat of a […]

5 Reasons You’ll Love Visiting the American Girl Store

We booked our trip to Chicago to visit family before we knew it would fall during my first trimester. It was the steal of the year … like, we all flew, round trip for a few bucks over $500. Ya’ll Southwest is where it’s at! We had a grand ol’ time touring around Naperville, hitting up […]

Black Bean Brownies

This post was sponsored by S&W Beans as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I hate to always harp on Max when it comes to food, but that kiddo has thrown me for a real loop when it comes to meal time. He […]

hello second trimester

Hello Second Trimester!

Oh my lanta.  That was rough. Well, it kind of still is (evening nausea anyone?), but I’m aiming to begin the start of the week, AND the start of my second trimester, with a brighter perspective and manageable to do list. And yay, you get to check it out, because what else would you want […]
