Organize Me (If That’s Even Possible)

July 29, 2013

If there’s one truth about me, besides my love of unsweetened iced tea and Daisy brand sour cream, it’s that I am unorganized. When it comes to organization, I am a hot mess. The fact that we live in a (not quite) half remodeled house doesn’t help that matter. At all. There’s a lot of [...]

Updates. So Many Updates.

June 13, 2013

Well, 3. 3 updates. Okay, so remember a few months ago I told you guys that Dylan was in a batting slump and I was in a workout slump? Well, I’m still lazy and not going to the gym. BUT! As of last weekend, I think we can safely say that Dylan is out of [...]

Kitchen Design – Take 1

June 5, 2013

Before we looked at this house, before buying it was even considered a possibility, I peeked in the kitchen window one afternoon. When I saw the size of the kitchen, my mind reeled with possibilities. I was sold. The house had to be mine. It looked like hell, and was going to need a LOT [...]

I Bought Spray Paint. Things May Not End Well.

May 31, 2013

I have this table and chairs set that my mom bought my senior year of high school. It’s a cute little metal framed ice cream set that is in DESPERATE need of some love and attention. And for some reason, perhaps the lovely weather we are currently enjoying, I decided this morning that today is [...]

Daydreamin’

April 30, 2013

A few months ago I decided to make a list of the things I want to do in life. Call it a life list, a bucket list, or whatever else you want, for whatever reason I was inspired to start keeping track of the things I’d like to be able to see and do. Not [...]

Slumped

April 20, 2013

We’re in the middle of a slump. Dylan can’t seem to get his bat to make contact with the baseball, and I can’t seem to get my butt out of bed in the morning to go to the gym. Dylan’s batting woes are much more painful than my inability to leave my warm bed. Watching [...]

Embarking On A New Adventure

April 10, 2013

So…I made a big decision a few weeks ago. I’m going back to school. And by “I’m going back to school” I obviously mean I enrolled in an online course, because the very LAST thing I ever want to do again, in the whole wide world, is step foot into a classroom. Those days are [...]

Four Years – Purple & Blue

April 7, 2013

In some ways, I remember this day, four years ago now, as if it were yesterday. Heather and I had only met in person 8 months before, but we had become fast friends. We’d spent time texting & google chatting through several of Maddie’s previous hospital stays, and for the most part, this one appeared [...]

Our LEGOLAND Hotel Sneak Peek #LegolandHotel

April 6, 2013

This blogging thing is pretty cool sometimes. Take two weeks ago, for example, when I received an email from the good people at LEGOLAND asking if my family and I would be interested in joining them for a night to get a sneak peek of the new LEGOLAND Hotel, complete with 2-Day Park Hopper tickets!

Best Laid Plans

March 27, 2013

Remember a few weeks ago when I said that we’re taking a Spring Break trip to the snow? Well, the day has arrived. Except, the snow has left. A few weeks of daytime temperatures in the 60s have melted the snow. Whomp whomp… So now, instead of it being a trip to a cabin in [...]
