A few days ago, a cold front swept across the Midwest leaving us with extreme Fall-like weather.We went from shorts and tees to hoodies, jackets and pants. The short tease of the Fall season leaves me wanting to go on hayrides and apple-picking more than ever.

When my friend, Ashley, and I get together with the kids, we like to have fun. She jumps at any excuse to have a themed party, dinner, or playdate. However most of the time, she doesn’t even need a reason (or lots of guests) to do so. I remember last year when her oldest started preschool, she had a huge school-themed layout complete with decorations, just for her 3-year-old’s breakfast.

Accidently Finding the Perfect Furniture Piece for Our Entryway

September 4, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sauder. The opinions and text are all mine.

We have lived in our house for over two years and a couple areas still aren’t fully decorated, painted, or welcoming. One of those areas being the front entryway. I’ve had big dreams for the space. I envisioned my husband building a bench area with hooks and shelves for all the kids’ stuff. But recently, we came across what may be the perfect piece of furniture for the space.

August 29, 2014 No Comments

Happy (late) Friday! I am writting this a lot later than I hoped to, but I wanted to get it up since I haven’t had much time to do one in a few weeks. Things have been extra hectic and it seems like every Friday this month has not gone as planned. I am holding my head up high though, as we end the month and get ready for a big September.

Until then, let’s have look back at some of this week’s happenings:

Our Family’s Special Bond with our Dog, Ellie

For the majority of my life, I have always had a dog by my side. One that is not only a pet, but also a member of the family. I will never forget my first dog, as a kid, Corki. I shared a great bond with her for well over twelve years. She taught me that the connection between an owner and their dog is extremely special.

I’m excited to say that we have survived two weeks of school. Ethan loves Kindergarten, he hasn’t been late (yet) and I haven’t forgotten to pick him up! That is all an accomplishment in it’s own. But there is one thing I am still having a hard time with… weeknight dinners.

I am a lover of routines and schedules. No matter what is going on, or what we are preparing for, I have a schedule for it. If something gets done repeatedly, even yearly, I have a routine for it. It helps me get through our hectic days and helps my kids stay on track.
