Feeling Blue

Feeling Blue

Last week I was seriously wondering if I was even in charge of my own life: my emotions, my decisions, my thoughts. It’s been an extremely emotional couple of weeks and I’ve found myself in tears more in the past few days than the past year combined. On Saturday, I spent the day shopping and visiting with my(…)

Sundays at the Farmer’s Market

Sundays at the Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s Markets in Oregon are truly amazing. Adelaide looks forward to our weekly trip to “market” as she calls it and despite all of the hassle of loading everyone up in the car and wrangling them through the booths and aisles, I do love it too. We always make a bee line for eggs and(…)

Here is the inspiration for Ari’s birthday cake, I can’t wait to see what it looks like tomorrow! Also wondering if this would be over the top to have at a one year old’s birthday party? I love when Dad’s share their experience with breastfeeding, this article had me bawling. This made me love Colbie(…)

Easy Project for Toddlers

Easy Project for Toddlers

My mom is a Pinterest addict and she has quite the following. She brought a super easy and fun activity to do with Adelaide when she came to visit and Adelaide has been addicted ever since. If you go on Pinterest and search “paint chips hole punch” you will see a ton of really fun(…)

Gearing Up for Preschool

Gearing Up for Preschool

Adelaide starts Montessori school in September and I’ve been trying to think of everything we need to do to get ready. I’m thinking we really need to focus on having an organized backpack and lunchbox. Zulily has some awesome sales going on right now for Back to School and I found some stuff I love.(…)

When Mimi Comes to Town

When Mimi Comes to Town

I’ve been a little quiet around here lately and that is because my mom is visiting and we are just too dang busy! We only get to see her once (or twice if we’re lucky) a year so I am trying to soak up every minute. She is currently out shopping with my sister who(…)

Fabric Handprint Art for Dad

Fabric Handprint Art for Dad

I love capturing how sweet our kid’s hands are at different stages and try to do something with handprints each year. I’m always looking for cute ways to incorporate the kids handprints in homemade gifts for Richard. You can only do the hand dipped in paint on canvas so many times, right?  This past Father’s Day I(…)

These differences between the 1st and 2nd child totally apply to me. This gave me goosebumps. Parent like no one is watching. Doing chores and taking care of kids at the same time IS (at least to women) totally sexy. I just discovered another Oregon Coast blogger and I’m so exited! Love this post about(…)

Tender Wonder Suit Review

Tender Wonder Suit Review

I met the coolest small business owner at the NW Baby Shower who makes these super cute one piece suits for babies and toddlers. Aside from being totally adorable (and crazy soft), Tender Wonder Suits come with absolutely no snaps, zippers, Velcro, buttons or elastic to pinch or scratch baby’s tender skin (hence the name(…)

When Your Toddler is Teased

When Your Toddler is Teased

… you may be tempted to call an 11 year old a B*****! (just not to her face of course) So remember when I was all feel good about Adelaide making friends with the kids on our street? Well that’s all well and good until some pre-teen makes fun of my TWO YEAR OLD. Here’s(…)
