I have been gardening for about a year now, but I have been thinking and planning to be a gardener for 2 years. That’s right, I waited a whole year after I got the itch to garden. Waited a whole year after all my friends planted their first gardens. Why? Because I wanted to succeed. I was going to win this gardening game!

Or so I thought…


1.    Things die… A LOT
I wanted to be the best (I might be a little competitive...

Let me clarify that I like Halloween just as much as the next guy, but there are a lot things about Halloween that I am just not a fan of. Sorry all you Sanderson Sisters wannabe's...

1. Jack-o-Lanterns are ridiculously hard to carve and make look nice... unless you are a sculptor (which I am not). Oh, and if you have kids, plan on carving theirs also and having them complain that it is not the image they had in their minds.

Nothing like a good New Year’s resolution, especially after the whole “eat, drink, and be merry” season. I knew I wanted to lose weight… partly to be healthier, partly to be skinny for a wedding I am a bridesmaid for in June. But regardless, that was my top resolution. But I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to accomplish that.

Cue my sisters coming back from a little vacation they took… and all they could talk about was Whole 30...

As I have before mentioned I love being married. When I was on vacation for 2 weeks I thought being a housewife would be so fun! The truth is it is very boring as a budget house wife. I thought it would be wonderful to get caught up on house work, spend time with friends, and shop. Instead…I’ve been bored out of my mind…why you ask…

House Work is Lame

I spent some of my time doing laundry and cleaning my house. It was really nic...

Hellooooo July! Or should we say, "Goodbye July?" Can you believe the month is half gone. We can't. 

Since it the mist of summer, we are celebrating in flamingo style! A little corny, we know ;) But we like flamingos so why not make a gift set dedicated to it?! We are very excited to giveaway a custom made sign for Crafts on Tap by Emily Spinelli. Not only is she a sweet girl, but she is also an amazing artist! You can look at...

Staying busy in the summer is great. The kids have all that time off of school. Vacation time is here. And life is perfect…

Well, not always. I learned the hard way of things not to do in the summer with kids. Trust me, you don’t want to learn these lessons the hard way…

1. Do NOT go to Disney World in August while baby wearing.

I am sure you can find tons of information and opinions out there telling you to wear your baby at Dis...

Birthdays. You either love them or hate them. This year I felt that my birthday was just a train wreck. So many crazy things stuffed into one crazy week. Seriously. I was so stressed.

The Worst Things About My Birthday Week This Year

1. After 2 weeks, my sister went home…

2. I had to work the night shift a lot.

3.  I didn’t even get to finish my birthday blog post that I have been working on for months. I guess next year just keep...

Man, we just can’t get enough of traveling… mostly visiting family and Disney World! When I go visit my family in New England, I fly. Everywhere else, I drive… with kids. To be honest, I prefer to drive. I don’t have other people’s judginess to worry about. I control the environment, for the most part.

But trust me, it isn’t always fun.

     1. Vomit

For our oldest son’s first birthday, we drove 8 hours away to celebrat...

I survived. I can say this now that baseball season is over. It has been one of the craziest things I have ever done for my child (besides that whole giving birth thing). So let me start this story a few years ago when we wanted our oldest to start playing tee ball…

He was just 5 years old, and we thought our church league tee ball would be a good fit for him. And it was. It worked well with our hectic schedule, and he got to l...

Happy birthday to me! But this year, I'm starting to realize how 30 is coming quickly. I wrote this fun and silly post about being in my 20's is still very real for me. Enjoy!

1. I search out trendy clothes

2. I still think I look beautiful without makeup

3. I eat Ramen noodles and chicken nuggets

4. I am back in school full time

5. I think I can run 5K’s without training (shocker- I can’t)

6. My hair is never done even though it sh...
