Are you guys done with your holiday baking? I was really good. I baked a few days ago. I made blondies, cookies, and truffles to hand out to Mike’s coworkers and our neighbors. However, since I made them, I have also consumed like 50% of the finished products. Oops! [Read more…]
While you guys are reading this, I will be prepped and ready for my second c-section and the arrival of our second little boy. That’s right. I will be freaking out and being wheeled into an operating room while you guys are all cozy in your house or at work reading about cookies.
I have so many emotions flowing through my body right now. I kind of think it adds up to something like this; 70% nervous, 20% excited, and 10% overwhelmed. Um, yeah give or take a few other emotions too. I keep going over what I need to do before we leave tomorrow and if I have done everything I need to have done by now.

I’m so not ready. But I am. You know what I mean?

Sorry kid number two. Today we are taking Andy to one of those choo-choo restaurants as one of our last little outings as a family of three. So, yeah, see, totally ready. [Read more…]
I know the champagne flutes have probably already been pulled from the deepest depths of your cabinets and dusted off in preparation for tonight’s festivities. But, before you pop those bottles, let’s get a game plan going for your morning after.
Ok, you’re going to need food. Probably a brunch recipe or two because you won’t be up, moving, and hungry until about 11am, right? Alright, let’s talk casserole or overnight French toast. Those are good options you can prep today before you get all gussied up for a night out or gussied down for a Netflix marathon.
Thank you all for the love and joy you bring to me and my family by visiting this site every so often. I am so grateful for you guys and this space and this community. We are a community! Woo hoo for us! [Read more…]
