What I’m Feeling Friday… Road Trip!

Tweet Let me start by saying this. I have never been away from my babies. Wait, let me correct that. I went to BlogHer a few years ago when my son was smaller. Other than that, I have been with them. When we travel, the kids are with us. My son is almost 5. It…

Tall Girls Rock

Tweet It’s becoming more and more apparent to me that I have some pretty tall kids. My son is an inch or two shy of 4ft. He’ll be 5 in November. My daughter had her 2 year old check up recently and we found out that she is 3ft even. Both of them are almost…

Six Things I’m Going to Miss About Summer

Tweet Six things I’m going to miss about Summer? I sat staring at this question for a while. I couldn’t think of many things I’m going to miss about summer. The only thing that came to mind are the adventures I’ve been able to take with my babies. Having them all to myself has been…

What I’m Feeling Friday… FITNESS

Tweet This Friday, I’m feeling all kinds of determined. I have talked about my fitness woes before. You all were full of suggestions and support! Love that! 🙂 Things are slowly turning around for me in that area. It all started with Twitter. Yep, Twitter. I got a tweet from a workout group here in…

First Day Jitters

Tweet Sometimes we’re ready for the stuff that comes our way. At other times we have to get ready. My first baby started elementary school yesterday. I had so much anxiety about it all. I was totally nervous about him fitting in, making friends and all of that.  Preschool was one thing but this…this is…

Story time with a Garden View

Tweet This summer, has been interesting. I have, for the first time, been at home with both of my babies pretty much full time. That has led to us really being a little unit. I love that. It has also led to me being in constant planning mode with finding things for us to do….

School Shopping with Schoola #clothes4schools

Tweet Our house is full of kids toys and clothes. Some of them are in use, some are not. I have been in the process of bagging things up and getting them ready to be given away or sold. At first, my son had a problem with this. He was not amused by me taking…

When Working Out Doesn’t Work Out

Tweet In my old life, I was a work out maven. Mostly when I was single. I worked out five days a week, two hours a day. I loved it. Sure, it was probably keeping me single but I was in shape! I looked good, y’all! Fast forward to my newlywed days. I used to…

I’ve got a new baby…

Tweet I’ve been sharing my life here for almost four years. It’s been a fun and rewarding journey. I’m NOT stopping! I’ve loved getting to know all of you and following your stories too. I have expanded though. I’ve mentioned before that I had stared another site. It’s my namesake and it’s totally devoted to…

I Think It’s Already Started… American Girl

Tweet My thought is that it’s inevitable. At some point most little girls develop this love for a baby doll. My daughter is no different. She is absolutely over the moon about her “baby”. She won’t give “baby” a name. I suggested naming here Jasmine. She looked at me and said, “no, BABY”. Her little…
