A Tuesday In The Life: May 2021

6am: Alarm goes off and I roll out of bed and over to my pumping station. I still pump milk for James twice a day, but working on weaning off of it. 6:30am: After washing pump parts and putting away clean dishes, I sit down to work on my blog for a few minutes. 7am: […]

Daily Thoughts

This is my very first blog post and to be honest I am terrified. I am not one to put myself out there, especially on the internet. Today as I stare at this blank page in front of me, I have a million filters going through my head. If I was staring at a blank […]

A Quiet Evening

Good Evening! I hope that you all had a nice day. Our day consisted of lots of walking, James is 13 months old and finally getting the hang of the whole walking thing. He’s keeping me on my toes for sure! The highlight of our day was going to the therapy pool at the YMCA […]

A trip to the mall, frisbee golf, meltdowns, and more…

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope that you all enjoyed the long weekend, and are looking forward to the fact that it is already Tuesday! Josiah and I are going out of town on Thursday with some friends for a long weekend in the Adirondack’s. Two long weekends in a row, we’ll take it! Josiah has […]

Adirondack Vacation Recap Part One

Hello friends! I hope that everyone had a great weekend! We are back home from our trip to the Adirondacks with some of our best friends and had an absolute blast! It was our first vacation away from James and while I was nervous about how he would do staying with both of his grandparents […]

Adirondack Vacation Recap Part Two

I’m back with part two of our ADK vacation! On Friday morning we were all up fairly early, but had a low key morning. I eased into the day by drinking some green tea on the deck while soaking up the beautiful forest views. A group of us did a short yoga session to kick […]

Our Favorite T’s

Target and Trader Joe’s that is! After a quick breakfast of avocado toast for me, and blueberry applesauce, avocado, and banana pancakes for James we headed out the door for some early morning errands. Our errand run included two of our favorite stores so neither one of us were complaining about the morning to-do list. […]

Thinking Out Loud

Eating lunch in peace…that is rare these days. James and I went to church this morning which means that his morning nap didn’t happen. He was more than ready for a nap when we got home and is now sleeping soundly. I just finished a quiet lunch of avocado toast with eggs. As I look […]

Toddler Entertainment: 14 Months Old

As a full-time mom, I wake up every morning with one primary goal for the day, keep James alive and entertained. We both get bored easily, so I try and fill our days with lots of fun and play. I’ve listed some of our favorite weekday activities below. They’re a 2/10 on the creative scale, […]

Food and Fun Highlights from the Week

Let’s take a look at some of the brighter moments from the week. A reminder that no matter what we’re going through, there’s always something to be thankful for. I say that now as I sit in a relatively good head space, but trust me I do not always believe what I preach. Last weekend […]

Midweek Check-In

Howdy folks! I thought I would pop on today for a little Wednesday chat. Our week has been nothing out of the ordinary so far. On Monday James and I went to a dance party at the library. We had fun, but it also felt like I was the only parent there with a child […]

Happy 4th from the Beach

Happy 4th everyone! James and I arrived to Pawley’s Island VERY late last night. We didn’t go to bed until after midnight! Our plane was delayed, and after screaming his lungs out for the first half of the flight, James finally passed out in my arms for the remainder. I’ll spare you all of the […]

Footprints in the Sand

I was thinking this to myself as I watched James wander all over the beach this morning leaving tiny footprints along the way. A beach of endless possibilities in the eyes of a one year old. We started our day with another patriotic breakfast, although James hasn’t been super into any of his meals here. […]

Saturday Coffee Date

Happy Saturday afternoon everyone! I always seem to sit down for blogging coffee dates in the afternoon, but I’m certainly not drinking any coffee right now. What’s everyone up to today? I’m sure you’re all out enjoying some kind of summer activity. I’m staring out at a beautiful day over in our neck of the […]

A Peek into Our Monday

Happy Monday to you! How’s everyone doing? I’m getting a bit of a late start on this Monday. I’d love to have all of my blog posts published in the morning, but sometimes life gets ahead of me. James was up bright and early today and our day has been filled with all kinds of […]

When You Want It All

I just want to be able to do everything and have it all. Not material items necessarily, although if I think about it hard enough I could certainly come up with a list. I’m thinking more in the sense of wanting to be two places at once. I love being a full-time mom, but it […]

James’s Monday Face

This is James’s Monday face and honestly I can relate. We both spent the weekend battling runny noses, sneezing, coughing, and endless amounts of tissues. Not my favorite way to spend a summer weekend, but it happens. We are having ourselves a Monday over here. I gave James cereal for breakfast, he hated it. We […]

Firetruck, Splash Pad, Birthday Party, and More!

Happy Monday to you! Here we are at the beginning of another week! James and I don’t have too many plans on the agenda for the week, but I hope to fill our days with lots of summer activities and outdoor fun! Maybe a few playdates too? We’ll see! FRIDAY On Friday morning we had […]

A Morning on Foot

Hey guys, coming at ya late today. I hope you’re all having a wonderful Wednesday so far. We have had a good day over here, but also a trying one. Parenting is TOUGH some days, and I’m only dealing with one baby, bless all of you out there juggling more! Yesterday in therapy we spent […]

A Fall-Like Summer Weekend

Happy Monday to YOU! How did the weekend treat ya? I hope you were able to enjoy a couple of days of fun and relaxation. It almost felt like *gasp* fall around here this weekend and I’m still not sure how I feel about it . Hopefully it was just a fluke, and our regularly […]

A Weekend at Cranberry Lake

Happy Tuesday everyone! I took an extended weekend away from blogging, but I’m back at it this morning with a weekend update! How was your weekend? I hope the week is off to a good start for you too! FRIDAY After sleeping in a bit thanks to my parents having James for a sleepover Thursday […]

Lake Days

I am 100% stealing this blog post title from another blogger I follow, but it truly sums up our week so far. We have been soaking up all of the lake time possible, and it’s been the best summer routine yet! Full time mom life is feeling good lately:) On Monday I decided to bring […]

Thoughts on Motherhood and Life Lately

Happy Tuesday evening everyone! I meant to publish this post earlier in the day, but had technical difficulties. I thought that the post had disappeared into thin air at one point! But then it reappeared, woohoo! I feel like I haven’t been checking in as much and I’m kind of beating myself up over it. […]

A Tuesday In The Life: August 2021

Good morning and happy September! I’ve got a day in the life post for you guys today. If you’re wondering what it’s like to parent a 16 month old, this is the post for you. I tried to keep the words short and let the pictures do the talking, because there’s a lot of them! […]

It’s Been A While

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? It has been a while, hasn’t it. I didn’t blog at all last week and it was really just what I needed. I have been taking a major break from social media, so I’m trying to figure out how my blog fits into that. I really enjoy blogging […]

A Season of Rest

Y’all, I totally meant to publish this post yesterday morning, but the week has gotten ahead of me. So here we are, a little over a day late. Ahh life. Hey, hey! How about some real talk to kick off this week, yay or nay? I’m not sure if a heavy post on a Monday […]

Hello, October!

Happy Friday, friends! Is anyone else in shock that it’s already October? I feel like I say this with every passing month, but seriously, what happened to September!? We are definitely in pumpkin season now, cupcakes anyone? We’ve had a week over here. The common cold made it’s way through our family starting on Monday, […]

A Peak into our Weekend

Happy Monday folks! How was the weekend for you? It was a beautiful fall weekend in our neck of the woods and I hope you’re jumping into the week feeling nice and refreshed as well! I’ve decided to keep it light on the words and let the pictures do (most of) the talking today. Getting […]

Fall Friday Coffee Date

Happy Fri-YAY everyone, anyone getting fries to celebrate?! Haha, kidding. But I know someone that wouldn’t turn down a french fry at the sound or smell of one…James. But I titled this a coffee date, so I’m thinking I need to switch gears here. Join me with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate […]
