Corey’s First Day of School

Corey's first day of school

Say it ain’t so. My baby’s all grown up. Okay, maybe not alllll grown up, but this big man is now going to a toddler preschool program twice a week! I know it’s going to be the best thing for both of us, but ohhh boy my Mama Feels are at high tide right now.

Favorite Apps

favorite apps

I know that you know that there’s an app for that, but I thought I’d throw even more apps at you to really get you boggled down with more technology. Just kidding – I really love technology and want to share what makes my life easier. I use most of these apps daily, some for

Weekend Recap

This weekend was a great change of pace for us. Things have been a little hairy these days with work stress and the like. You know – life. No biggie. We still had a great time with friends and family. Big Man and I took a trip to our local library to play around and

Life Lately

I’m suuuuuper pumped because we are another step closer to being [finally] moved into our new home! Yes, we may have moved in a mere 11 months ago. Yes, we still have a lot left to do somehow. BUT I am enjoying staring at these lovely new ladies that are in our living room. They’re

Terrible 2s? Or Terrible Nows?

terrible twos

Holy banana biscuits. I had NO idea what to expect when people talked about the “Terrible 2s”. We’re in the weeds now, my friends. Corey has officially hit this so dreaded phase of life. The Terrible 2s are here to stay. Before I had Corey, I would tell myself: Surely myyyyyy kids won’t act that

German Potatoes + A Great Week with the Big Guy

Now that everyone is healthy, we’ve been spending as much time as possible outdoors before things get too hot and steamy in Houston. He was born to be outside, I’m convinced. I’ve found some great things at Dollar Tree and Target for him to play with that are durable [and cheap]. I’ll post about those

Grilled Stuffed Jalapeños + Scenes from the Weekend

Grilled Stuffed Jalapeños

We had such a great weekend at home with family and friends. I’m sure like you, it’s a rare thing for us to have a weekend with ZERO plans. It was nothing short of amazing. Jon had to work late Friday, so we ate leftovers and were passed out by 11:00 [which, sadly, is late

Life Lately

life lately

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that we just can’t seem to catch a break these days. We’ve got totally “first world problems” as they’d say, but lemme tell you somethin’… they start to wear on you. Corey and I have had a cold (yes, just a cold… already went to the dr) for

Friday Funday

cluse watch

Our string of bad luck continued this week. Corey and Jon both got a nasty rotavirus, so they were pretty pitiful for about 4 days this week. Luckily, I’m rota-free at the moment [probably just jinxed myself], so I’m definitely looking forward to a fun-filled weekend of Easter eggs, Jesus, and a sweet two-year-old’s birthday

Baby + Toddler Shoes

I looooooove to shop for baby boy stuff! I’m horrible with little girl things, I’ve got to be honest. I can barely dress myself most of the time. But, when it comes to Corey, I usually do a pretty good job. I can also tell you that as much as I love shopping for little
