Do you ever have about a million things hit you at the same time that are just so discouraging and ugly and seem hopeless? Do you ever feel so beaten down you just want to beat someone back? Do you ever just crack under it all and lose your shiii cool? That is where I’ve… Read More maybe sometimes we need to lose it.
Last week was one of those crazy busy weeks that involved so many big decisions it was hard to keep up with “normal” life things. Like laundry. Which I can attest to since Andy and I put up approximately 347 loads of laundry yesterday. On Monday we embarked on The Great Home Search of 2015… Read More the great home and kindergarten search of 2015
I have been gone from the internet world (more on that in another post) for two weeks and I now feel like I have SO MUCH to catch you up on. Let’s dive right in, okay? First, I feel like I should update you on the state of my hair after Dave made it skanky two… Read More babies, weddings, mudding, and butts. (what more you could ask for?!)
As some of you might have noticed (meaning, my mother), I took an unexpected break from blogging this week. I kind of snapped and haven’t been in the frame of mind to blog.

Mother, father… if you are reading this you may want to just skip over until you see snow pictures. So yesterday I filmed my Ipsy Bag review and then had to run out to meet Andy for lunch. After we got home there was a knock on my door from the maintenance people. They needed… Read More humiliated and snow days.
Last week was a blur of sickness and appointments and yuck. Just wasn’t the best week we’ve ever had. We did have a good streak though- a year with no fevers or illnesses. So I definitely feel mighty blessed about that. Wednesday Ryder had her first dentist appointment. As a heart patient, she had to… Read More moms at walmart and snow
A little over a week ago, Andy and I got the bright idea to cook 21 frozen meals. When I say, “Andy and I,” I clearly CLEARLY mean Andy. I would never volunteer to cook 21 meals at once, ever. That being said, I have so enjoyed not cooking the past week because I already… Read More Frozen Meals | Fishing Tales| Rory’s birthday week
Winter birthdays are hard because you have to have an indoor party. And the cost of finding a place big enough for a party and then supplying everything for the party ends up being $200++++ depending on how big you go. So I made the executive decision that THIS year we would take a little… Read More Wilderness at the Smokies | Rory’s birthday weekend
My Dearest Rory, Today you are five and I feel like I can hardly wrap my brain around that enough to even type it because WHERE DID THE LAST FIVE YEARS GO? Everyone says it goes by in a blink and that is so very true. I blinked and you went from an infant… Read More FIVE. (a letter to Rory on her 5th birthday)
