Living With Kids and their stuff

Living With Kids and Their Stuff

  One of the biggest changes that comes with life with kids is the stuff. If you have kids, you probably realized that about five seconds into your baby shower. Umm…where is all this stuff going to go? I’m not gonna lie, I do a little happy dance when the bouncy chair can be retired […]

Take That Life List

Pulling It All Together

And It All Comes Together…

We have been working on turning our living room into an expression of us. We started with the neutralization process. We tore up the carpeting and had our hardwood floors refinished. Instantly fresh!

Pinterest Proud: Ikatbag

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was such a fabulous idea I had to share. This was done by Ikatbag. How fun is that? It is so brilliant because it cleans up nicely and even when it is “out” it takes up hardly any square footage. I just love it. I might even […]

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Favor

The sun is setting, there is a cool breeze coming through the front door. The birds are chirping, a sure sign that spring is here. Eleanor is napping. I can hear Quinn giggling as he plays with his dad in the backyard and I am drinking a Blue Moon (don’t judge) and whipping out a […]
