Im Moving!

For those of you who want to be in the know……   Until I come up with my next blog, I am moving my old one to I most likely will NOT be adding new content to the new/old link (you’ll see all of my old 2012 items I am sure). For now I am going to take this… Read more →


It has been very quiet around here lately.  Life has not been quite though.  Nope. When I have had a few weekends free, I have been helping my mom flip our old house (turned rental for the last decade) so she can get it on the market ASAP.  The renters she had in there for the last eight of those… Read more →

It is that time of year

***Yes, a post while I debate on the future of my blog*** Tis the season for family gatherings, decorating, and shopping in a frenzy (because lets be real, a lot of wait until this month to do any sort of gift shopping).  To me and I am sure most of you, December is also when I start preparing my next… Read more →

The State of the Blog Address

My Fellow Blog Readers, we are here today to address the state of this blog and where I think blog land is at.  (heh). In the past I have toyed with the idea of upgrading this blog or completely throwing in the towel.  Lil blog here has gone down a few different roads from the early days of playing around with… Read more →

Nesting: It is a Real Thing

Howdy Friends!  I just got back from a week long work trip to Texas and I was so glad to get back.  It was a mix of stress/fun, but there is nothing better than being home. When I got home, I was pretty much a vegetable that couldn’t get out of bed.  I was physically and mentally exhausted from that… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 9: Baby’s First Trip

September 8, 2015.  If you haven’t noticed, I am sort of writing these posts throughout the week because I have just realized I am having a hard time remembering what happened the week before.  So sorry if they are choppy. Let’s back up a smidge to our doctor’s appointment last week.  On Thursday we met our OB and got a… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 8: Raspberry Beret

(I hope you are singing that title in your best Prince voice) August 31, 2015.  The week of our first doctor’s appointment.  Pretty excited and I am so sure this week is going to go by horribly slow. Still feeling pretty nauseous (actually VERY NAUSEOUS) and somedays throwing up would be a relief.  I have a little anxiety about this… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 7: Our Little Blueberry

August 24th, 2015. We started week seven feeling pretty overwhelmed.  There is a lot of information out there.  People who know what they are talking about and then those that aren’t the most reliable sources.  I ended up buying the Mayo Clinic’s pregnancy book.  It was written by doctors.  Matt did some research and found that What to Expect was… Read more →

Pregnancy Week 6: Finding Out

I started a pregnancy journal using a cute journal I found at Target, but decided with the pictures I would hopefully be taking, I probably would not be printing as much as I would like.  So I am going to try my best to document our journey here and create a digital scrapbook at some point.  I hope you follow… Read more →

A Small Project I Have Been Working On…

YAY!  This is so exciting!  We are both really excited to meet our little chicken nugget in early April!  There is still SO MUCH to do around the house and in life to get ready for her arrival.  I have been saving posts from the week we found out and plan to document the journey here (until I can make… Read more →
