  • Our Anniversary Weekend

    Our Anniversary Weekend

    This weekend was a busy one. I feel like since going back to work, and now with two kids, our weekends are even more precious to us. We don’t get a ton of family time during the week, so we cram it all in on the weekends. This weekend was also our six year wedding anniversary (on Sunday). We’re not huge gift people, so we opted to just spend time together… and I sweetened the celebration by getting us a dozen Georgetown Cupcakes for the weekend. Saturday we did our normal routine – Weight Watchers followed by errands. Ella had…

    To My Daughter, Before You Become a Big Sister

    Well, any day now, it’s happening. With an induction date on the calendar, bags packed, and a nursery ready to go, it’s more evident than ever that our days as a family of three are numbered.

My sisters are 9, 10, and 13 years younger than me, so I remember them being babies, toddlers, little kids, and now young adults.  They’re a pain in the butt sometimes, but I love them.  And luckily, they taught me a lot about parenthood.  Here’s just a few of the things they taught me… Sometimes babies cry for no reason, and it’ll all be okay.…

    A Story From Childhood

    A Story From Childhood

    Linking up with Blog Every Day in May again.  Today’s topic: A story from your childhood. I was nine years old, and my sister Rachel was only a few months old.  I had waited for a sibling for as long as I could remember.  I was so happy to finally have a sister, but life had changed a lot for me.  I had been an only child for nine years, and suddenly I was sharing my parents for the first time. Then I found the pregnancy test. My mom had left it in the kitchen, on top of the microwave…
