Vintage Baby Girl Shower for Lydia

A few weekends ago I had the privilege of helping put together a shower for my friend, Becca.And I should probably disclaimer that when I say "helping put together," that what I really mean is that I emailed and told the girls I would love to help and for them to tell me what to do. Ha! I am not a frilly details person, so sometimes I just need some direction and guidance and then have fun helping in the process :)Lydia is Becca's third daughter, so we didn't really want to go over the top with anything, but we still wanted to make it special ....more

For the Love of Blogging | AWBU 2014.

(Bear with me as I iron out some of the kinks in my new blog design.... and I HAVE A NEW BLOG DESIGN!!! Yay for finally finding the discipline to sit on the couch for 4 hours and figure out html coding that was intimidating me!)If you follow me on social media at all, then you know that this weekend I was tucked away in nearby Rogers, AR for the fourth annual AWBU (Arkansas Women Bloggers University).I'm going to be honest and say that going into the conference I was a little nervous ....more

First Fall Practices.

Last weekend was the first practices for the boys fall sports this year. After weighing all his options, Brayden opted for flag football. Connor really only had one option of soccer, which he heartily decided to play ....more

First Day of MDO.

One of the biggest adjustments we've had to make with Kindergarten is trying to explain to Connor that he still has two more years left at home. I'm selfishly glad for this fact, but to Connor, it's been a devastating blow to his world. I think in his mind, he's as old as Brayden and therefore can do everything Brayden does ....more

First Day of Kindergarten.

Well, after last nights post I was sure that I'd be a hot mess this morning. I even debated whether or not to put on makeup today, because, let's be honest here. (a) I rarely wear makeup to begin with, and (b) mascara and the first day of Kindergarten don't really seem like a great duo ....more

Thoughts on Kindergarten.

Several years ago, I swore I had my life figured out.I already had my man, my cute little dog, and a quaint home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a nice little landscaped yard. I planned on having 3-4 kids, and I was most sure of two things: we would never live in a certain city and we would never send our kids to public school. Fast forward six years ....more

Farmers Market Fun and Other Noteworthy Happenings.

Kindergarten Send-Offs

This has been a week of bittersweet for this momma. I feel like this summer has been both the longest and shortest of our lives. And as we continue to wind down the summer days, I have been both excited for my biggest boy and completely heart broken that this time of preschoolhood (not sure if that is a word, but I'm going with it) is coming to what seems to be an abrupt end ....more

Weekend in the Water.

It's Wednesday and I'm blogging about the weekend. I could list out all of my excuses; some of them are legitimate and some are just, well... they just aren't ....more

Nice Hair, Bro.

The other night Ty was playing on the trampoline and his hair went a little wild.Kind of like him. ;)He has the funniest, most energetic personality. Definitely proved me wrong when I thought that perhaps I'd get a laid back third born kid ....more
