Finding Balance & [ Lily Jade Giveaway ]

I gotta say that this post isn’t going to sound like I’ve got it all together, because I don’t. Being a mom is probably one of the best gifts life has given me. But, the most trying. I always swore as a child that I would never have...

Freshly Picked Giveaway

It’s no secret that I love moccasins. I wear moccasins, my kids wear moccasins and yes, I try to get my husband to wear moccasins. But, that doesn’t go over to well. I was recently chatting with Rachel over at Freshly Picked and she is gi...

Friday Morning Coffee

My coffee tastes a little funny today.  It’s sort of like water with coffee added to it, does that make sense?  Maybe it tastes like this everyday and I’m only noticing it today because I am so tired. I’m about to put my S’M...

Now

Right now I’m sitting on my couch, I just ate a bowl of Cinnamon Life and I’m drinking coffee.  Yes, even though I’m pregnant, I still drink coffee in the mornings. I have to clean my whole house by 11:00 today because I asked my c...

Am here.

I’m around, I promise you.  I’m still sick and still tired but wonderfully pregnant and so excited I can’t see straight. Noah refers to the baby as “our baby” and it makes my heart melt every single time he says it.  W...

Seriously?

This past weekend I had planned every single moment with a variety of different activities, from festivals, to apple orchards to birthday parties. I even had a photo shoot and had dinner with friends on Saturday night.  It was a very full, exciting,...

Joyful with a side of morning sickness

I had a really cool weekend. On Friday I headed to downtown Chicago where I spent almost 24 hours with five of the coolest, smartest, most gifted and compassionate women in the entire universe.  I am convinced of this, so you must take my word for i...

Baby Love.

Today was the third time we caught a glimpse.  But this time, it was different.  There were definite arms and legs, movement so beautiful and that heartbeat, oh my God that heartbeat that was beating at 162 miraculous beats per minute.  With each...

Always changing

I am back home in Indiana and so much has changed since I departed on Wednesday. Anna lost her first tooth.  While I was gone.  Her first tooth.  I’m so sad that I missed this milestone, one that she has been anticipating since the dentist s...

Used.

Thanks to all of you for sending your love my way last night and today.  It made such a difference, as always, I’m always so grateful that you continue to check in on me. This family of mine is out of sync.  I blame it on school starting and...

First Day

We all had first day jitters, Anna and I more than Brian and Noah.  (which is so not surprising.) They woke up right on time and ate a great breakfast, spirits were high.  They were ready 20 minutes early. I can’t believe how old they seemed...

Busy girl

Last Friday, she learned how to ride a bike. Her first loose tooth is so loose, it’s hard for her to eat. Today, she set her alarm clock and her brother’s alarm clock for school tomorrow.  She also showed him how to use it.  All without...

Random Road

So, yes.  I am retiring Ariel and Racecar’s names and starting to use their real names.  I’ve made this decision for many reasons, the main one is that it just didn’t fit them anymore.  Waaaaaay back when I started using those na...

So fair

We took the kids to the fair tonight.  They got to choose whatever they wanted for dinner, they chose corn dogs and I do not understand that decision at all.

Home again

We’ve been away visiting my sister and her family in Louisville since last Thursday, we had a wonderful time.  I was mostly disconnected throughout the visit and there was plenty of time for sitting and eating.  Always eating. Friday morning,...

Disconnect to reconnect

This past Sunday at church, the discussion was about how we, as Americans, work too much. The topic for this week was “The Sin of Worshipping Our Work.”  I was a little giddy at the idea that both Brian and I could listen to this message...

Beachy

First of all, my blog is ALL WONKY and I have no idea why.  So, please excuse the tiny fonts and the weird lines just showing up for no reason. I’m taking the kids to the beach today, we are going with Sarah and Asher.  I’m feeling like...
