Summer... we all love the long days, the time with family, the pool and beach... but the craziness of life has caught back up to us, and we are back here as well!

Back to School mayhem has finally become manageable. The flu and strep have already come and gone through a few of our families (in September?!?)... And life is back to its regular hectic self.

The Baby graduated from nursing school this summer! So proud of her and all...

Today, I turn 30. What a number I have dreaded. I remember thinking "that is old." I use to comment on 30 year old men who would go out with 25 year old and say "ew, he is sooo old!" 

BUT I do not miss that girl. That girl (in her early 20s) was beautiful, flab free, golden skinned, wrinkle free. Fun was always on the to do list. She was ALSO insecure when she didn't have to be, was immature in so many areas of life, loved...

The question really is, why would I need to defend it? Who doesn’t love it? Honestly, I don’t know… but I still think I need to defend it, if only to defend my actions on this day!

Growing Up

We didn’t necessarily celebrate April Fools’ Day exclusively. My father is a rampant prankster… So random Monday in July? Expect him jumping out of the closet. Coming home after school? Don’t be surprised to find a mannequin sitting in th...

To commence the end of 2018, we thought we would share with you a book review of sorts- a list of all the books we read in 2018. As you all know, we are a big fan of books for both ourselves and our kids. Why not take a little break from reality every once in a while? And we would love to find out what books you read this year too!

We are going to list these in order from our favorite to our least favorite (doesn’t necessarily...

Who loves making memories at Christmas?! I know I do. This is a simple craft to make for your next tradition around the holidays. Or better yet, a cheap way to add homemade decorations to your tree. Did I mention 3 INGREDIENTS?!

I like to do these the day before Christmas Eve so we have a craft to do the morning of Christmas Eve. It really set the mood with an easy, relaxing craft to do while listening to Christmas music a...

Christmas is just around the corner, and I always get something to read for the kids’ present. Even if you are a minimalist, you often will get your kids a book for Christmas… you know, fosters a love for reading and learning. The good stuff. (And if you know me, I do love reading). Plus, this totally fits into the whole 4 gift rule- something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read. And just FYI,...

I bet you all could guess what it is. I feel like it is so obvious I don’t even need to tell you, but this is a blog after all. 


In my household, there are actually 2 bedtimes- the kids’ and mine. Both are equally enjoyable and well-loved here. The first comes around 7:30, and the second around 10:30. Did you notice the 3 hour gap between these two? Let’s be honest, if we are lucky, it’s more like 2 after the “I am th...

I grew up with only sisters. It was quite a shock to find out my firstborn was a boy and then my second as well… My house is always messy. I have at least a load of laundry every day (boys like mud… who knew?).

After having 2 boys, I have learned a lot about them. Let me just give you a short list of the big ones I never knew.

Boys need to be looked at 24/7. Period.

Boys crave, beg, whiny, scream for approval and praise.“Wat...
