I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

DIY Powder Room

Five Things Podcast

Hello! Hi! I've missed you! As you can see from the photos above, I have been busy. SOOO BIZZY. You know, with things like re-doing my bathroom, getting makeovers at my daughter's new salon, taking & printing photos at the dinner table with my girlfriends and dancing at Kellerman's. DIRTY dancing. In all seriousness, the collage above shows ...

I’m a gardener now!

So, the title of this post may be slightly misleading, but I am going to say that in comparison to where I was at this time last year, I am a freakin' plant expert. I have never liked gardening, and I think it is for two main reasons: 1. I have never been good at it 2. A nearly debilitating ...

Festen

"It's daddy's birthday, oh yes it is, and it is today!"

For my 21st birthday, my parents and I got tickets to this star-filled show, featuring ...

Where I’ve Been

Hello! Hey, friend. I’ve missed you. You look really cute today, by the way.

Here is what has been going on and why ...

I DO know how to toilet train my son!

It only took one year of trying! Exactly one year ago, I published this post entitled "I do not know how to toilet train my son." I swear that I wrote a follow-up post to the original, but I cannot seem to find it. I did, however, write a more recent post involving my son and the toilet, but ...

Even when times are dark

"How does a human being become so extraordinary?" I asked my daughter when she finished reading her book to me. She just smiled. Despite the fact that my brain has been a bit fuzzy as of late, my girl is just soaring. She came to me, just now, and told me that she had written a book this morning (during the 20 ...

It was amazing

"You never play outside with us like that, mama!" my daughter said, smiling.  "I know, love," I began. "I want to play outside with you..." She cut me off.  "No, mama. You did play outside with us today and it was the most fun day ever. It was amazing." *** I cannot even begin to count how many times I have written ...
