My daughter…a fearless soul. Well this statement was true until Friday evening. Something horrible happened, something that has potentially ruined a carefree summer.
My parents had gone out of town, leaving us to take care of the fort….make sure all stays alive (plants,garden,dog,etc). Perfect, I love gardens and I love taking care of them, I can not wait to get back into a house and have our own again.
I proceed to go to my parents backyard to do some watering and my kiddo…Continue

Happy Monday! I have ten important things from the weekend for ya’ll. Complete with pictures. They’re from my phone – but they’ll make do for today, right? I thought so.
1. I whipped up an awesome cake for dinner at my Godparents house this weekend – it was seriously fantastic, and I just kind of made it up from other recipes as I went along. You’re going to love it – I call it the …Continue

My (loose) plan for this past weekend got changed up by a surprise visit from my niece! We loved getting to see her and let her pick dinner on Saturday. Tacos it was, so we have some leftover taco meat to be repurposed this week. And we scrapped the plan for Friday night and took Monkey out since he was an "only child" for the weekend since Roo went…Continue

I haven't had a "What We're Reading" post in a couple weeks. I'm going to back of on making this a weekly post, because I found while we might get through all the books, moving on to a new group each week meant the kids weren't getting to read over again the ones they loved. So we're slowing down on…Continue

One of my favorite summertime desserts is angel food cake. It’s lightweight and has that easy sweetness that just reminds me of summers as a kid. Add some berries and oh yes, it’s fantastic. This weekend I needed to whip up a quick summertime dessert – something not too heavy but more than just the angel-food-cake-and-berries combo I would make for at home. And this is what I came up with! It’s an awesome, light angel food cake topped with a creamy, whipped layer, fresh strawberries…Continue

A year has passed. A year since I pushed and cried my way through bringing her into the world. She was perfect. She was beautiful. She was a sister for my other daughter and the newest member to our little family.
The past year has been amazing....

What baby doesn't like pasta? And what baby doesn't like Bolognese sauce?! The list of ingredients in this recipe might seem a bit long but they should already be staples in your pantry (so there is no need to rush off to the grocery store if you want to prepare this sauce in a hurry!).
The only thing you might not have is San Marzano tomatoes...you could use any diced canned tomato but I prefer San Marzano. They are so much sweeter and tastier than other canned tomatoes. Try them for…Continue
Magnificent Monday - there is something truly magnificent about having the courage to dream a big dream and making the dream come true.
It takes courage to dream a big dream. Most people like to live in safe and secure manner. They never step out of bounds and never try to do anything different that may be a little hard. For most people predictability and stability are more important than the rewards that come from bravery and potential success. It takes courage…

We all remember the good ol' days....Where everything was perfect, he was perfect. We felt adored, lovely, holding hands and kissing weren't even a question.....
What happens when the good ol' days are gone? When nothing goes right, when neither of you are perfect is a reality, loveliness is exchanged for pjs, and affection is not what it used to be?
In the beginning we tell everyone ~ "we're in love!" Time goes on, life happens, choices are made and before you know it…Continue

When I first started planning Annabelle’s 1st Birthday Party, my sister-in-law, whom I love, asked me what the theme was. I said I hadn’t decided yet, but inside I was thinking, “Oh crapitty-crap, I need…Continue

Okay, maybe two dimes. Last night we hosted our daughter's 1st birthday party at our home. We had such a great time celebrating with friends and family. I thought I would share some of my party decoration tips hoping that there may be one or two that may be new to you!
Our baby girl is a big fan of Olivia so we decided that would be our theme. We also decided that Olivia's colors (red, black and white) aligned nicely with the look we wanted to take our deck and outdoor…

It’s Saturday morning and I wake up and realize that OMG – I promised the kids we would go to the pool today. I had come up with a gazillion great excuses during the week but today it is warm and sunny…and no rain in sight. Thanks a lot weather.com.
Drats. I’m stuck.
Kids don’t realize that you just don’t hop in the car and head on over to the pool or water park. Those clean towels and drinks and snacks and sunscreen and toys and floats and chairs don’t just magically appear in…Continue

I know this sounds rather morbid but it is something I think of often while driving around town with Tiara. I envision myself driving when I am suddenly struck in the head with a flying object, my head hits the steering wheel, my car careens…Continue
