No Time For Feelings

I always try to take the time to write in a journal or blog when I’m feeling something. I find that by having this blog as one of my outlets, I am able to really just unload (or unleash lol) all of my feelings. While I’m not always the best at expressing my feelings speaking […]

Sense of Calm

Do you ever have those mornings where you’re rushing around trying to get everyone where they need to be on time, make sure everyone is fed (including pets), and everything in between! I look at this photo above and it honestly looks like we have it all together, but if I look closer, we had […]

I Was That Mom Today..

Well Happy Wednesday. What was supposed to be a little trip to the city with the kids, to make some returns and search for some house things, ended up turning into, well; just keep reading. We started the day with our usual breakfast at home. I packed a bag while the kids ate. Then we […]

QuaranTotally Losing It?!

It’s been a while since I’ve taken to the time to actually sit down and write, other than some recipe and craft posts. I love writing and sharing those, but when I can sit down and write from my soul about real feelings and what’s been on my heart, it feels so refreshing. I will […]

Coffee Filter Butterflies

Do you remember making these back in Pre-School?! I came across a pack of coffee filters in our cupboards while I was cleaning, and thought what am I supposed to do with these! We used to have a real coffee maker but now we have a Keurig. I decided that they could just go in […]

Potty Training: 101

I swear, this was probably the most challenging part of motherhood to date LOL. I think I expected it to be a little easier than I thought so maybe that didn’t help me. I also felt like it was more emotionally draining than I thought it would be as well. But when I look back […]

Paint Tape Snowflakes

It’s that time of year where I need to find fun things to keep us busy INDOORS. As much as we love winter and snow, we also miss being able to get outside every day! I decided to check our craft basket and find something we could do. It was a huge success and I […]

Helping You and Your Toddler Transition With a New Baby

It’s been three weeks since our little Payton entered this crazy world! It has been quite the adjustment being a stay-at-home mom with two kids, but I think we are finally getting the hang of things. I will be totally honest, for the first couple weeks it was absolutely “survival mode.” As in one day […]

Binky Training: 101

First of all, if you are about to try and ween your little one off of their pacifier (we call Carter’s his binky), I am already sending prayers. This process has had me just as exhausted as Carter was! But we are starting to get the hang of things, so I’d love to share a […]

Tips for Bringing Your Toddler to Mass

I wish there was an exact answer on how to keep your kids fully entertained during mass when they are so young!  But I will say there are tips and tricks that can help your little ones stay sane during church.  Jeff and I were nervous about bringing Carter to Christmas Eve mass because our […]
