It’s a Fab Five Friday – August 29th Edition

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

August 29, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of K9 Advantix® II. The opinions and text are all mine.

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.

5 years ago, right after I became a mom, I knew my life would never have slow or boring moments again. I realized my days would consistently be filled and my ‘to-do’ lists would be never-ending. I have always been organized, thanks to my love for office supplies, and that really has been helpful in my need for multitasking.

Parenthood and adulthood can come with rough days, be frustrating, and downright stressful. I’m not alone here, right? There is always so much going on. We are trying to be at five places at once. We are trying to multitask when we are already doing three other things. Sometimes, we just need a laugh.

A Day at Grant’s Farm in St. Louis, MO

August 4, 2014 No Comments

We were provided with vouchers to use during our visit to Grant’s Farm. All opinions are my own.

The summer is a great time to get out and explore family attractions around town. Last year we took our two oldest boys to Grant’s Farm and they really enjoyed it. Last week seemed perfect to take all three of my little adventurers to see what kind of fun we could get into together. Caution: This post is slightly picture-heavy :)
