wiww: this week.

It’s funny how I lean on my wiww posts when I’m not tending my blog as well as I should be. I guess because they are fun & easy. This week’s wiww post is themed on what I actually wore this week. Meaning Monday & Tuesday. It was cool on Monday, but I wanted to mix the outfit up a bit. I think the wedges are fun with the long sleeve top. & on Tuesday I wore the two tops that I haven’t worn in a while with one of my new favorite skirts. But, this makes me realize that today is only Wednesday. Man, it’s felt like a really long week over here.

Outfit one: Top-Target, Skinny capris-Old Navy, Wedges-Target. Outfit two: Top-I think the tank is from Target and not sure about the other, Skirt-Target, Necklace in both: my creation from The Crafty Social.

Until I find time…

I still have Tucker’s Legoland field trip to share about & now Easter & just life in general. Until I find time, here’s a little traditional Easter family photo. Gotta love a good tradition.

The Griswold’s ain’t got nothin’ on us.

According to a friend on Facebook, that title is the truth ::word:: I do happen to feel pretty good about surviving 24 hours of camping with three kids. We all know that kind of stuff can go one of two ways.

Luckily, our kind of camping wasn’t really roughing it. We had a bathroom with running water. We didn’t have to provide the food (the family camp night event provided our dinner and our breakfast) other than the snacks our kids require. & we were safely fenced in between a neighborhood and a Walmart (pretty hilarious if you think about it).

When we asked the kids the next morning, Tucker told us he loved everything, Lilah loved the campfire (mostly because she had s’mores minus the graham crackers & marshmallows, yes, that means chocolate) and the tent, & Lexie loved canoeing (even though I wouldn’t let her help paddle) and the sleeping part (our girl loves her sleep, anywhere, obviously).

& now Mike wants a tent of all tents after seeing one another family brought. Bass Pro, here we come.

We’ve been MIA this week…

Let’s just say that as soon as we got home this morning we showered & changedContinue Reading

Ultimate Blog Party 2014, aka #UBP14

I’m a little late to the party this year…oops. It must be because life has been just a little bit crazy over here lately. I had every intention of partying along this year (and doing it in a timely manner) but I guess fashionably late is acceptable, too. If you are new here, my nameContinue Reading

My new normal.

On Monday I got my first glimpse of what my new normal would be. I was at school, inputting grades into the computer to get my report cards ready for printing when an email arrived in my inbox about an issue that needed to be taken care of for a blog promotion I was hosting.Continue Reading
