Five Years


Five years ago, I walked down an aisle to join hands with my best friend and we became husband & wife. I knew you were my soul mate, but I had no idea how much much my love for you would grow. Today, I love you more than I ever knew was possible. When I walked into your office for the first time and shook your hand there was a feeling I had never experienced. Somehow I knew you were the one Continue Reading

Saturday’s Top 5 Laughs


This was a great week, despite my entire house getting sick (besides me), and I'm happy to join Mel from The Mommyhood Chronicle's blog hop. Here's my top 5: 1. I was getting dressed earlier this week when I heard Jackson climb onto the bed and say "Sidney hungry, wanna eat?" while he lifted up his shirt and sat next to her. He proceeded to "hug" and "feed" her with this shirt up. Continue Reading

Teething Bling Review & Giveaway


  Sidney will be 6 months old on Saturday and she has entered the stage where everything  goes in her mouth. Not only does she put everything she can get her little hands on straight to her mouth, she also has the shortest attention span while nursing. If anything moves or talks while she is eating, forget it, her head is up and looking around. She doesn’t want to miss a thing. That’s Continue Reading

Parenting Anxiety


  Ever have anxiety that makes your entire chest tighten up and a wave of heat wash over your body? I had it yesterday afternoon when I was dancing around our living room, Sidney on one hip and Jackson on the other. The Laurie Berkner Band station was playing on Pandora and all 3 of us were dancing along to "Mouse in My Toolbox", even the dog Rex was barking along. When the song ended, Continue Reading

We Love Kiwi Crate!

Can't wait to go test it out in the wind

I'd like to start off by letting you know that I subscribed Jackson to Kiwi Crate 3 months ago after reading my friend Beth's review and have been so impressed with their service that I wanted to let you all know about them. Kiwi Crate has no idea I'm writing this review, nor have they asked/sponsored for this. I just think it's a fabulous idea that could make your lives easier. Kiwi Crate is a Continue Reading
