A girl and her dog

When we found out we were having SB I was a little worried about how Indy would be. Indy was the baby of the house. How was she going to take it when a new baby arrived? I was worried she would be jealous. 8 months later I regret ever letting that thought cross my […]

Caffeine and a little time out

2 days of pounding headaches. I usually get  a mid-day iced coffee. The last 2 days it just hasn’t been possible and the result means an excruciating headache for the last few hours of the workday. Brutal. Just brutal. Part of me wants me to cut back on the caffeine…but the reality is I am […]

Those eyebrows…8 months

Can you believe she is 8 months old? I really can’t…it feels like just yesterday she was being born. She is our little miracle. She is our joy. Last night as I was putting her to bed MB walked in and showed me her Star Student notebook from 3rd grade. All her friends had written […]


I totally feel like I could sleep for days. Not minutes. Not hours. Yes, DAYS! This past week was brutal and then the weekend while lots of fun was non-stop as well. So now its a new week and I am already starting off EXHAUSTED! I know it is that time of year….we are in […]

Palm trees and sea breezes

I love when my travels include hotel rooms with palm trees and ocean views. It doesn’t happen very often, like 1% of the time…but when it does it sure does make being away from home a little sweeter. A very small bit sweeter.      Being away does make finding today’s happy a little harder but […]

A fun new spot in town

We found a fun new spot…for the mommas and the kiddos! Pinspiration I love how the place looks- its an explosion of fun…it is just how your would imagine it with the name Pinspiration! And then there are shelves full of pinterest projects…you pick what you want to do, they have all the supplies for […]

Boost from friends

Today was non stop confusion and miss communications making things a little chaotic. So it was so wonderful to have 2 shinning moments in the day. Impromptu coffee with MK who was in town on a layover and we had time for a speed dating version of live catch up. Thank goodness texts fill in […]

Yep what I said

Remember a few days ago when I talked about being a working mama. Today was sure a kick in the butt about that statement. Managing a webex and school drop off. Managing errands over lunch break. Managing pick-up, soccer practice, school carnival, and dinner with friends, all after a full day… Oh and then there was […]

Working Mama

So being a working mom can be pretty tough at times. There are times the other side looks a little greener. But if I am honest with myself I love the feeling at the end of the day when I have accomplished it all. The days when I enjoy that first (& second) cup of […]

The urge to blog

It has almost been a year since I blogged last. But lately for some reason I have been missing it. Maybe I miss capturing the memories so we can go back and read through them. Maybe I feel a little bit like I am not doing a good job with Baby S updates. Maybe I […]
