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 […]

6 Questions To Ask Before You Invest In a Really Nice Stroller

Today’s post is sponsored by Baby Cubby. Cross my heart, I don’t mean to sound uppity, but when it comes to strollers … you get what you pay for. This, I know from experience. This, I have schooled Dominic on. And that says a lot seeing that he is Mr. Budget. Here’s the deal … invest in a […]

May Days

May was beautiful. In so many ways. It was the prime of my pregnancy – love that second trimester boost of energy. Had spurts of gorgeous weather – even if it wasn’t sunny, it was often clear. And, we’re all feeling settled as we acclimate to our new town. I mean, how could we not, with […]

How To Listen To Audiobooks For Free

I don’t read a ton, but I read a fair amount. These days half the books I read are holding a paperback  and turning pages and the other half is hitting play and listening.  That’s right … I’m an audiobook mama! I listen on the regular. Sometimes as I fall asleep. Often in the car (with this […]
