Monday was not the typical day at my house. Sunday night I went to bed with an awful migraine. When Luke woke up crying at 6am, I was still heavy under the fog of a bad headache and lack of sound sleep to start my day early. Instead of getting up … Continue Reading
I wouldn't be a very good blogger if I didn't follow up on the Hunger Games party that my friend Arielle planned and hosted at her home on Friday, March 23rd, the opening day of The Hunger Games film. I know you've all been waiting on the edge of … Continue Reading
Do you ever feel like you're constantly dealing with sleep issues with your kids? I hope it's not just me.
So we've come to a new little crossroads in our sleep misadventures at our house and I wanted to share it with you. Hopefully this all … Continue Reading
My mom had a great idea last weekend while we were visiting my parents and I wanted to share it with you all. My parents are coming to our house to visit during Spring Break and Mom decided to make a little paper chain for the boys with the same … Continue Reading
I couldn't do it. The plan was that on Friday evening, my husband and I would go to my friend Arielle's Hunger Games party and then see the movie on Friday night. But that would mean waiting 22 hours after the opening to see the movie I've been so … Continue Reading
The only thing that keeps me from shouting "La Nina Rocks!" from the roof tops is all of the scary weird crazy tornadoes popping up as a result. We have enjoyed soaking up every minute of unseasonably warm weather this past week. Since our town … Continue Reading

Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that I have a three year old and a two year old. At times, I think I should be more tired than I am, but then again, I'm plenty tired. I'm quiet used to the "Whew! I wish I had their energy!" comments and … Continue Reading
This Spring weather is awesome. Right now I'm sitting at my kitchen table with the windows open (well, one of them is open, the other is broken due to hail damage from a few weeks ago) watching my boys play in the backyard. We recently got a new … Continue Reading
We just introduced Dr. Seuss at our house and it's going quite well. I picked up two books at Target that were on sale for Dr. Seuss' birthday, "Hop on Pop" and "Green Eggs and Ham".
Will really enjoys Green Eggs and Ham, and I can really relate … Continue Reading
Someone asked me recently if I feel like I parent Spencer any differently than I parented Miles during the first 19 months of his life before he became a big brother. My answer was that I absolutely do and my approach is much more hands-off and "Oh … Continue Reading
Diaper bag space is prime real estate at our house. I would love to be able to have a few blankets available for extra warmth and shade if they fall asleep I don’t have the room!
SnoozeShade has created a wonderful stroller accessory, the … Continue Reading
I've had a blog in some form or another for a very long time. It has always been a fun outlet to get stuff "out there" that I'm thinking. And now that Jamie and I have this blog that people actually read (who'd a thunk it?!), in addition to doing … Continue Reading
We are having some pretty severe weather in Kentucky right now. It could be something major or it could be nothing this time, but with it not being spring yet and already having a couple of tornado warnings already, I thought today would be as good … Continue Reading
I'm not going to lie. I'm kind of a nerd. I did far too much reading and not enough socializing growing up, which is probably why I spend my day behind a screen instead of dealing with actual people. But anyway, my friend Arielle told me I should … Continue Reading
