This + That

This was Monday. Sunny, gorgeous, all the lovely parts of Spring. Today is grey. Grey and wet and calling for a trip to Starbucks. So we went. Because mama needed a piping hot americano. And if you’re curious that new concoction is a grande double decaf americano with 2 pumps white mocha 2 pumps toasted coconut […]


How to Better Moisturize Your Skin in 4 Easy Steps

This post was sponsored by Nature MadeĀ® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I’m not a hypochondriac, but I’m definitely a skilled self-diagnoser. I’m not the only one, right? With the internet at our fingertips it’s hard not to sense a symptom, ask friends, […]


Baby Boy Names

Ya’ll, I’m out of boy names. I love Max and I love Reid. And I knew they were perfect for my boys. But baby boy #3? I’m struggling a bit. I want to LOVE his name. I want it to fit him perfectly while flowing with the other kid’s names too. Is that too much […]

Home Decor Dreamin’

Since my last house post, nothing new has happened. Sadly. Dominic did a hefty load of research on the land I fell in love with and deemed the 30+ acres to have “a postage stamp size” corner of buildable land. Humph.  So, back to square one. Often, when the land hunt gets too boring/stressful/depressing I […]


Reid — 15 1/2 Months

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, […]


This + That

We’ve started venturing out a bit and exploring our new town (and surrounding towns because it’s kinda tiny). It’s majorly lacking in art walls which is sad because the hashtag must live on! But, there are perks to tiny. Perks like … there is never a line at Starbucks, we have a brand new Grocery […]


Jemma’s Take on Tenney Grant (and Logan Too!)

Last month Jemma had a special delivery from American Girl. She had seen her in person on our Chicago trip and swooned over her curls, outfits, and contemporary buddy. I could give you the scoop from my perspective (because ya’ll know I’m practically as in love with AG as Jemma is), but I thought it […]


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 […]
