Busy and Productive Weekend

Busy and Productive Weekend

Wow!  Monday already?!  Am I the only one who feels like I need a third day in my weekends?  This way I could spend 2 days getting things done, but still have a day to “relax.”  I guess one could dream, right?  Anyway, we had a VERY busy but productive weekend, so let’s get right to it! Let’s rewind to Thursday night, when I managed to knock out ALL (!!) the teacher and bus driver presents!  I think Nathan thinks…

Traditions and Sibling Love

Traditions and Sibling Love

Hi there!  I hope you are having a wonderful week.  I can’t believe we are already halfway through – the weekend is coming!  This year I am trying my very best to get ahead when it comes to Christmas stuff.  The Christmas cards went out in the mail on Monday.  We have all the kids’ presents ordered.  Giving Tree gifts for church are here (just need to be wrapped).  And I am hoping to finalize all the teacher gifts this…

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Hey everyone!  Thanks for all the love on my last post.  Although I am definitely still a work in progress, I am happy to report that the Thanksgiving weekend was exactly what I needed to kind of “reset.”  We had 4 days off, and it was a wonderful mix of family time, accomplishing things around the house, and getting ourselves ready for Christmas.  The only thing missing was relaxing (or generally being lazy).  Does this really ever happen when you…

I’m Struggling…

I’m Struggling…

Hey there!  I’m normally a pretty positive person on here, as I truly believe people come to this space for that type of feel.  I don’t want to whine and complain nonstop, as I know plenty of people are going through things way worse than I will ever experience.  However, I also feel that I owe it to you guys to be completely real sometimes, and today is going to be one of those times.  Just a warning: I’m going…

Day in the Life – November Edition

Day in the Life – November Edition

When reading other blogs, day in the life posts are always my favorite to read for some reason.  And they are really fun to write!  I think it will be fun to look back in a year or two and see how things have changed in our day-to-day activities.  I just wish I had a blog when the kids were babies so I could remember to total mass chaos in our house 🙂  This is from last Wednesday.  Here goes!…

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

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!…
