Cape Cod July 2017 (in photos)

Hey Everyone! Back from our Cape vacation, sadly. :(((((     We had a blast even though the weather wasn’t totally cooperative the whole time. We started off great, with a super beach day… then the clouds settled in a bit.  Our one rainy day opened up to sunshine, though!  Which was great for go…

Vacation Diary-Day 3-At Sea/Formal night

Helloooooo Everyone! It’s Saturday, and I hope you guys have great big plans, because I am doing nothing. Well, nothing except cleaning!  But first, I am journaling about day 3, the first full day at sea and our first formal dinner night.

Thanksgiving 2013

Hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving with your family and friends!! This day went off without a hitch, and very relaxing. I couldn’t cook a darn thing, no apps, desserts or anything, which is frustrating, but a blessing. For the first time ever, while my husband went off with his buddies on their annual…

Weighing in #7 …and other stuff!

Hey Everyone! I’ve been MIA! Sorry! I didn’t realize it has been so long since I’ve last posted on here last.  I guess I’ve just been busy reading my favorite sites, news, blogs and drafting pieces for future posts, that it felt like I was posting, too.   I’ve been MIA from my kitchen too, which stinks, but…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I LOVE VALENTINES DAY! With my children. There is nothing better than celebrating this day with your little ones is there?  Seeing their smiles. Joining in on their valentines count.  Asking about all the cute boys or girls that gave those special ones.  Making special treats.  Just all the fun stuff. This morning we woke up…

It’s a Post About Nothing…sorta

Just an quick post! I wanted to express how amazing you all have made me feel over the past couple of weeks about my January 27th post. All the comments and new followers, the FB posts and messages, and, the in person (and phone!) conversations about it. The out pouring of support has been incredible….

2012 Recap- Great Family Memories.

Been giving myself some time to think about 2012.  All of my families firsts, vacations and memories made together.  All the ups and downs.   Laughs and tears.  As I look at it, 2012 was a year for me to reconnect with my husband and children, and really settle back into my motherhood role again. Since 2009, I have been working on…
