Back from my Sabbatical

So its been just over 4 months since my last post and I’ve finally decided to come off of my sabbatical!  Our little Hannah is now 4 months old (almost 5!) Where did the time go already!!  She has been busy rolling over, cooing and trying her first food just the other day!  In the…

Our little bundle has finally arrived!!

So after all the waiting and pregnancy craziness she has finally arrived!!  I thought it was another “false alarm” when I woke up at 4am screaming on the floor with contractions again….but after much craziness we realized that it was real labor and honestly just in time to deliver at the hospital!! I woke up…

False Alarm…Again!!

Ok people, false alarm!! And ooh what a surprise!!  No baby….AGAIN!!  You know that point you get in your pregnancy where you have just absolutely had it??  And you will do almost anything to get that baby out?? ….Well I am so beyond there!!  After crazy upon crazy contractions ALLLLLLL day, still no baby!  But my…

St Patrick’s Day March!!

Inspiration Can Come from Anywhere

So today I went to Michaels, my ultimate inspirational store!!!  I can go in for “2 seconds, for 1 quick thing”…..and come out 2 hours later with a cart full of things I never planned to get and 100 new projects!!  I had zero intention of buying this little watercolor kit for instance or the…

Pinterest Revamp!!

So have you ever started playing around on Pinterest and just gotten lost for hours?!  It’s SO HARD for me not to lose a day looking on Pinterest!  I just re-organized all of my Pinterest boards and created a brand new one as well, called the “Spring Mani Tutorial and Showcase”!!  I highly recommend that…

Oh boy!! We have a climber on our Hands!!

So shockingly, this is the first time I have had a child who is without a doubt a crazy climber!!!  She will climb up everything and anything!!  I’m finding it absolutely exhausting trying to keep up with her and stop this behavior, especially while pregnant…  I’m wondering if any other mom’s out there have a…

7 Year Olds Can Apply Jams Too!

Today’s Mantra

Most of us have goals or even “to-do” or bucket lists!  Do you have an action plan to achieve your goals?  I never used to!  I always for as long as I can remember had lists, then lists for my lists and so on…It seemed like everyday I’d be adding stuff from yesterday’s list onto…

Finally Home, Back to the Grind!

So I waited all day to be discharged and finally just after 5pm tonight I get home!!  I missed my kids, my Jam Squad, and even my husband! lol!!  I know no one believes it, but it’s tough being at the hospital by yourself!  I post this pic of my toes because I am so…

Clear. Liquid. Diet.

3 little words that no one ever wants to hear.  Clear liquid Diet is terrible!  Especially when you can hardly eat regularly anyways due to your crazy gallbladder restrictions of no fat, no dairy, and nothing that can upset my reflux!  There isn’t much left, and now I’m restricted to liquids only…do you see this…
