House Update: The Truth Is…

Truth is it’s Monday again! My resolution to blog twice a week is already failing me! Yikes!

Mama Monday: DIY Winter Car Seat Cover

Ren is three months now! I’m loving this stage right now! He’s making all sorts of noises, smiling so big and giggling! It’s my new purpose in life to see how big I can get him to smile or how much I can make him giggle. I’m afraid I won’t get anything else done during [...]

Happy Friday Friends! Has your week been productive? I’ve been asking myself this question a lot lately. Seems like my to-do list only grows and so much of it is still left on Fridays which leaves me feeling like I need to work all weekend! I hate that feeling! Today was much of the same. [...]

Hi. It’s me. I’m still here… Some of you may have been wondering if I was ever coming back! I don’t really know where to jump back into this blogging thing but it only seems right to go back to where we left off… Exactly six weeks ago today, we welcomed a new baby BOY [...]

Waiting To Meet You

Waiting To Meet You

Waiting… Seems like all we do these days is wait. Wait on contractors. Wait on a house. Wait on a baby. Wait. Wait. Wait. I’m feeling as if time is moving so quickly yet I’m stuck… like a hamster on a wheel… just waiting for everything to change. Because any day now, EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE. [...]

Happy Monday! I know I said I would post about house updates soon… Well, “soon” turned into “later”… about two weeks later! Time is flying and progress on our house is far surpassing my ability to photograph and post about it simultaneously! Thanks for allowing me to back-track when necessary! It’s amazing how quickly the [...]
