Introducing Baby Girl – December 27, 2015

Introducing Baby Girl – December 27, 2015

  I was going to post my Best of 2015 Books, but I thought it might cause a riot if I didn’t announce our sweetest little bundle first. On December 27th at 2:02 pm, Scott and I welcomed sweet little Baby Billy Bobbette to our family. Caroline Harper, whom we will call Cara, weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces and is 19.25 inches long. Pretty on par with her two sisters–plus the full head of dark […]

Le Tote Subscription Service Thoughts

Le Tote Subscription Service Thoughts

Remember a few months ago when I told y’all that I’m trying to be more mindful of what I’m wearing and the clothes that are in my closet? I signed up for Stitch Fix and have had a fun run with the service (though I put it on hold for the remainder of my pregnancy). I have been trying to add pieces to my wardrobe that are versatile and in classic style–but this is all […]

The Big Fat To-Do List

The Big Fat To-Do List

If I told y’all that I was easily overwhelmed, you wouldn’t be surprised, right? I’m sure I’ve made mention of this many times on the blog–and really given my tendency to take on ALL the things, I guess it makes sense. I keep thinking to myself that if I could just get organized, that life would fall into place and my days would run much more smoothly. Hahahahaha!!!! Lately, I’ve been feeling particularly overwhelmed. Work […]

Happy October!

Happy October!

I didn’t really mean to go all MIA on everyone. Life has been crazy lately–mostly at work, but since I work with my husband that sometimes leaks into our home life as well. Especially as Scott has been traveling a bit more than normal and this has been hard on my almost third-trimester self (I’m 27 weeks and feeling large and tired with 13 weeks to go). I went from looking for work to do […]

Evie Right Now | Two Years

Evie Right Now | Two Years

The other day I looked at Evie and very seriously told her that she needs to stop growing so quickly. She got a mischievous little grin on her face and said Noooo! She has a habit of dropping her tone and bringing it back up on a high note when a word ends in the oh sound. Twooooo! I’ve been trying to mentally make note of all the things I want to remember about Evie […]

8 Dinner Tips for Eating with Young Kids

8 Dinner Tips for Eating with Young Kids

Brainstorming meals that my girls will enjoy has been quite the journey over the past several years. Both of gone through very picky eater stages (we’re currently in the picky eater trenches with Evie (2) now and I forgot how terrible it can be), but just like everything else in parenthood–we just keep trucking along. As a provider of food I have a few personal rules that I try to stick with when it comes […]

Just a Little Ramble About Life

Just a Little Ramble About Life

  Here I sit on Wednesday trying to brainstorm what to write about tomorrow. Since I did a bookish post yesterday (favorite college lit seminars), I wanted to write something of a more personal nature today. But what? I’ve been thinking a lot about being an introvert and what that means for my mothering, but I’m not sure exactly what I want to say about that yet. On top of the introversion is my own […]

Roadtrip to New Mexico | Summer 2015

Roadtrip to New Mexico | Summer 2015

  So, I had big plans of sharing our Road Trip pictures with you starting last week, but as I started to work on my pictures my computer crashed. As in I had to get a new one–you may have seen my mention on Sunday that I’m now working with a Mac (yay), but it’s absolutely foreign to me and the process has been a bit frustrating. What the heck is the difference between the […]

The Importance of Me Time

The Importance of Me Time

Before I became a mother, I knew that my life would change once a little one came into my life but I didn’t know exactly what that meant. In the first few months of motherhood, I was so absorbed in my new duties and my altered life that I forgot about myself a little bit. I remember standing around the house while Elle napped and having no idea what to do with myself. Sometimes I simply […]

Living on Lake Time

Living on Lake Time

I’ve been thinking about creating a tag called “photo dump” to cover these types of posts. The thing that holds me back? The 1,000 other posts that don’t have such fun tags. :) One of my favorite things to do on a hot holiday is to escape with the family to my parent’s lake house to enjoy a bit of fun in the sun. Thankfully the weather wasn’t outrageously hot and we even had a […]
