Since We Last Spoke

September 11, 2014

We took our first road trip as a family of six.  Summer traveled a good bit her first year of life, and then Charlie and Katie arrived.  We didn’t take many family trips after that (read zero family trips), and after Hannah was born, I often wondered if we would ever leave Nashville all together.

Lately

August 17, 2014

Charlie and Katie’s room went from dark to light… When we moved last year, we had three children two and under, and I was six months pregnant.  So, despite the fact that I did not like the color of Charlie and Katie’s room (AT ALL), the thought of painting it completely overwhelmed me.  Well, after [...]

The Little Things Part II

July 7, 2014

Snacking on buttered and salted popcorn with bacon, candied walnuts, and chocolate chips.  A few weeks ago, I took the kids to tour a local dairy farm, and while there, I purchased some of their whole cream.  My morning mug (or two…okay, three) of coffee never tasted so good. We LOVE pesto around here, but [...]

Simple Ways To Organize

June 25, 2014

I thrive on order.  Often times I read about those moms who greet visitors with, “Kids are messy, and we welcome you into to our chaos.  Come on in!”  I tried being that mom – I really did, but I just can’t.  When stuff is everywhere, and the house is a mess (which happens daily!), [...]

The Little Things

June 20, 2014

Two posts in one week?  Yep, just had some stuff to write about this week.  Trust me, I could fill post after post with our day to day adventures, but since we try and keep the kids’ lives off of the Internet, I honestly don’t have much to share.  Our kids are my world.  From [...]

A Paletas Party

June 17, 2014

Can you believe they are two?!? Photo from here and text added using this app on my phone.   We used the above photo for an Evite invitation.  I also printed an 8 x 8 photo of the same image at Costco for a party banner and used Mod Podge to attach it to a piece of [...]

Stock The Freezer Party

March 23, 2014

Not too long ago, a good friend emailed a group of us asking if we’d like to take part in one those stock the freezer parties she’d been reading about on Facebook.  Spending a morning in the kitchen with friends sounded great to me, and the fact that I’d walk away with five delicious meals [...]

The Beloved Bean

March 10, 2014

It’s been way too long!  I have several blog posts written in my head, but I’m just not on the computer much these days.  Nor am I on my yoga mat.  My yoga challenge simply did not happen.  I had such good intentions, even set my alarm everyday for 5 AM for a week straight…and [...]
