Mean Girls

Mean Girls

  Oh boy. Or maybe more appropriately to this post…Oh girl. One of the things I am looking forward to least as a mommy to two little girls is girl friend drama. I lived through enough of it to last me many many lifetimes and just thinking about girl friends and girl drama gives me a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. I thought I had years before I had to worry about […]

Right Now I Am… [10.7.2014]

Right Now I Am… [10.7.2014]

  Well well well! We are back from our trip to San Francisco/Anderson Valley for my little sister’s wedding. It was a fun fun trip and so good to see so many family members and friends, but it’s also nice to be back home. I can’t believe we’re already a week into October and I so so wish we had five weekends in this month. I’m not ready for November to be here! There’s just […]

Listening To Right Now

Listening To Right Now

Good morning Lovies! Now that I have a teeny tiny commute again, I’ve been listening to lots of audio but also some radio as well (The Spectrum on Sirius XM in the car and Pandora on the Internet). It’s been a while since I’ve shared what I’m listening to and I’m loving Hozier’s “From Eden” so hard that I had had had to share it with you. Below are others that have been making my […]

Twelve Month Update – 8.31.14

Twelve Month Update – 8.31.14

Or in other words, a year. I’m in total shock and a bit of disbelief that my baby is a year old. Though I think this might be a bit more painful if she were my first. It was really difficult with Elle turning a year, but still. My sweet Evie. I know this next year will just blow by so quickly. So…the last monthly update for little Evie. Sleep – Evie sleeps about 8-8 […]

A Day in the Life as a Stay at Home Mom

A Day in the Life as a Stay at Home Mom

I’ve done a few “A Day in the Life” rounds on Instagram over the years but it always felt a bit self-indulgent to record an entire day and then blog it. The more I thought about it, though, I realized that this is the perfect place to record a day in my life as one day I’ll be able to look back and see how our days were (as will my girls). Below is a […]

A Visit to Toronto

A Visit to Toronto

Toronto! Ontario! Several months ago my dad told my sisters and me that my grandparents would be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this summer at my uncle’s lake house in Ontario, Canada. I knew it would be quite the undertaking to take the girls up there for a week but I also realize that it might be the last chance we get to visit as we average a visit every 5-7 years. In case you […]

Back Soon…

Back Soon…

  Isn’t she beautiful? My grandparents have the most beautiful gardens at their farm in Toronto. We flew home to Dallas last night and had a wonderful trip to visit family in Toronto (mostly further north in cottage country). I’ve uploaded all 450 pictures, run one load of laundry, and crashed like a zombie in my own bed. I had some posts drafted for while I was gone/this week, but pictures didn’t get uploaded in […]

Right Now I Am… [7.20.2014]

Right Now I Am… [7.20.2014]

  Hi Hi Hi! Today’s Sunday Post is brought to you from Pennsylvania! We’re up here visiting Scott’s family for the week and enjoying a bit of a break from the Dallas heat–except it’s been usually cool in Dallas the past week. We even had some rain! We don’t have a lot planned for our week up here but I hope to enjoy lots of outdoor activities with the girls and maybe even some solo […]

Musicals! A Top Ten List

Musicals! A Top Ten List

  I adore musicals. Love love love them. And yes, I do randomly break into song every once in a while. My girls think this is hilarious. Scott just rolls his eyes. I remind him every time that he picked me. Oh, but musicals. Growing up we always listened to music. I was young when Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast were released by Disney. My parents obligingly played these soundtracks (much as I […]

Ready, Not Ready

Ready, Not Ready

  Yesterday was a pretty big day. For the morning, Evie tested out the waters in the daycare she’ll be attending part-time in the fall. I’ve been a ball of anxiety over how the three hours would go and if she would even let me leave her. While I’m very ready to have a bit of a break from being a stay at home parent, I can’t believe that this day has come. I’m ready, not ready. I’ve been […]
