Things I’m Loving Lately – Food Style

Things I’m Loving Lately – Food Style

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!  Just jumping on here real quick to share some fun things I am loving lately, food style.  Feel free to share something you are loving lately in the comments 🙂 My new crockpot from Costco (where else?)!  I got my original crockpot in 2000 when I moved into my first apartment during college (my aunt gave it to me).  That bugger has been going strong ever since, and I have to admit I shed more than…

Our First Family Cabin Camping Trip

Our First Family Cabin Camping Trip

Hello all!  I hope you are enjoying your week so far.  The cold temps have arrived, and I’m afraid they might be here to stay.  I guess I need to just embrace it instead of fighting it.  Maybe we’ll even see some snowflakes soon!  When Nathan and I went away in September, we spent a lot of time talking about things we wanted to do with the kids during the upcoming year.  One thing that got mentioned was camping in…

November Happenings

November Happenings

Hello all!  How is your week going?  I can’t believe we are halfway through another week, and already thinking (and talking) about Thanksgiving!  And apparently New Jersey decided to skip fall this year and just go right to winter.  And I am NOT happy about it…  Anyway, I owe you guys an update on what’s been going on around here lately.  So let’s jump right in! I got these matching outfits for Reagan earlier this year, and she is still…

Happy Halloween 2017

Happy Halloween 2017

Well, another Halloween in the books – and it was a fun one!  So I wanted to share some pictures from our day yesterday.  It was hectic but fun, and luckily I took lots of pictures to remember the day.  So here goes! Graham’s parade was at 9am, so after putting him on the bus and dropping Reagan off at school I headed right over.  It was cold and WINDY!  But the kids were all so cute marching around, and…

Let’s Catch Up Over Coffee!

Let’s Catch Up Over Coffee!

Good morning and happy Monday!  Anyone else feel like the weekend sped past at lightening speed?  Anyone else getting excited for Halloween tomorrow?  We are trying to strike a good balance over here lately between chores/projects, fun family time, and downtime.  It definitely feels the downtime is lacking lately, and we are all feeling it.  But it’s been a fun few weeks with all the fall activities, so I can’t really complain.  So with that, let’s catch up over coffee!…

Tons of life updates

Tons of life updates

Hi everyone!  I missed you!  Although stepping back from the blog has given me room to breathe, I won’t pretend I don’t miss it.  I love sharing my life with you all, and love the comments that come as well.  So I’m jumping on here today to update you on what’s been going on around here.  And yes, I know I owe you a recap of our camping trip earlier this month.  Just SO MANY pictures to sort through! Reagan-Mommy…

Sorry I dropped off the face of the earth (and our weekend getaway)

Sorry I dropped off the face of the earth (and our weekend getaway)

I want to start this post out by apologizing for falling off the face of the earth last week.  I’m having a bit of an inner conflict when it comes to the blog, and last weekend I was about to shut the whole thing down.  Luckily Nathan talked me down off the ledge, and convinced me that I should keep it (but maybe scale back on the posting frequency at least for the time being).  I read all of your…

States I have visited

States I have visited

When looking for a fun blog post, I came across the idea of listing all the states you have visited.  And while I haven’t seen nearly as many as Nathan – I think he’s been to 44/50 – I’ve done some fun traveling in my life!  So here goes… Maine – Nathan and I spent 2 weeks at Acadia National Park in October 2010, and it was our last big trip before Graham was born.  It was such an amazing…

5 things that help us get out the door on-time

5 things that help us get out the door on-time

School mornings are complete chaos.  I don’t care if your kids are babies and in daycare or teenagers in middle/high school.  Getting out the door in the mornings can be so hard!  I remember when the kids were babies and I was going back to work after maternity leave.  Trying to balance “what time will they need to eat?” with “do I have enough changes of clothes and diapers/wipes?” was enough to drive me crazy.  And as they have gotten…
