Your Best Foot Forward

We’re a couple weeks into the school year and getting back into a new routine. This years a little different for us since both my kiddos need to be dressed and out the door first thing in the morning. Last year, if need be, I could take my daughter, Mahlia, in her Jammie’s for Paxton’s drop off. But this year…both kids need to be dressed, fed, teeth brushed, bags packed and out the door. What are some routine hacks that help you? No, seriously, I’m not asking to be polite, we could use all the help we can get! Continue reading “Your Best Foot Forward” »

Disney Land and Sea Vacation Part 1

Our favorite vacation was definitely our Disney land and sea excursion we took last spring. We always knew we wanted to take the kids to Disney but when Brent suggested we try a Disney cruise and parks, I thought, “Is that allowed”! It seemed like a dream come true! But that’s the thing with Disney, the right travel agent and an awesome husband…they do make dreams come true! Continue reading “Disney Land and Sea Vacation Part 1” »

I am motivated to start working on my spring cleaning! My goal is to spring clean in 3 different areas: Continue reading “Spring Cleaning” »

Be the Light

I noticed it when Mahlia was two. We were shopping at a store and she was singing her favorite song by the Beetles, “Here Comes the Sun”. As we were leaving the store I saw it…the light…the blessing. Mahlia is constantly singing wherever she is, especially at home, and I hate to admit it, but I  became immune to it. But on this day I saw what was actually going on, and I will never forget this day. Continue reading “Be the Light” »

Date Night

It’s a Saturday night and I’m sitting across from my husband, Brent, on date night at one of our favorite restaurants we haven’t been to in ages. The lights are dim, we’re enjoying the basket of bread and an adult beverage when I look at him and ask “Can I say something honestly?” I see the look of concern on his face as he responds, “How honest?” I feel like it’s something I shouldn’t say out loud but here it goes… Continue reading “Date Night” »

Books To Read

These books are currently sitting at home for me to read thanks to my awesome Sister-in-law and Mom!

About a year ago I rediscovered that I like to read! Once we had babies, if I had any time to read, it was typically in the middle of the night while I was pumping or nursing and it was usually the Baby 411 book to learn why my baby hiccupped or how to actually sleep through the night. Now that they are more self-sufficient I find it easier to sit and enjoy a good book! Continue reading “Books To Read” »
