The Dress That Won't Go Away

By now you have seen it.
If you haven't, you are not of this century.
Seriously, this dress debate is blowing up every social media news feed and I only have one thing to say about it.

Why Joel is Always Late

I know my husband is not perfect.

Nobody's is.

I'm far from perfect so I don't expect him to be.

Stewie and Caleb Are So Much Alike

Yesterday I complained about being stuck inside.
Because of my time spent indoors only to let the dog out I have noticed that Stewie and Caleb are a lot of like.

Get Me Out of Here

I forget every year just how much I hate the cold.
In Minnesota, there is no shortage of reminders.

Honey Garlic Chicken

Sometimes, you come across a recipe that was way too good for how easy it was to make.

My Personal NSYNC Tribute

Spoiler Alert.
If you did not watch the SNL40 Tribute last night you missed out.
What you didn't miss out on though was an NSYNC reunion because there wasn't one.

Valentine's Day 2015

Valentine's Day is not my thing but every year Joel does something nice for me anyway.
Of course, I don't even think about it until he does it and this morning I almost completely ruined it.

Call Your Parents

If you watched The Oscars last night you may have heard J.K. Simmon's beautiful acceptance speech.
What he said moved me to tears.

I am Jealous of a One Year Old

Most of my life I have based my decisions off of what I think other people want me to do.  I have a hard time saying no when I think saying no will hurt somebody's feelings.  Therefore, I have done a lot of things in life that I never wanted to do.
It's not a great trait to have but insecurity is something I have always struggled with.
So when I see a one-year-old who is bound and determined to do what he wants, when he wants, and how he wants, I find myself a little…

Cameron's Story

I have to admit that until recently, I didn't even know what a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) was. In case you are not aware, CHD is when a child is born with an abnormally structured heart and/or large vessels but I'll let my friend Kari tell you more.
 
Kari and I met at church last year when we were placed in the same small group. I found out from Kari that February 7th through the 14th is CHD Awareness…

That Mom Who Takes Way too Many Pictures

Is so me.
I didn't think I would be but I'm not surprised.
Caleb reading Joel a bedtime story.
I have always been very careful of what kind of and how many pictures I…

Sleeping Through Noise

I have gotten a lot of advice from other moms and people in general since having Caleb and one piece of advice has always bothered me.
Not because it's bad advice, I just don't get it.
I wrote yesterday about apartment living and how I have to be quiet when doing chores while Caleb is sleeping because it will wake him up.…

Apartment Living is Not for Me

I don't remember how Joel was able to talk me into living in an apartment but I've been pretty mad at myself for it lately.
The view from my bedroom.  Lovely, right?
It's…

Last Night was a Doozy

Ooo naughty word.
But let me explain.
Last night was awful.
Caleb was awake every 20-30 minutes until 7:30 this morning.  THIS MORNING.
Needless to say, I am tired.  Caleb is tired.  We are all tired.
Caleb's back teeth are cutting through (I think that's…

Getting Back to Me

I have been a lost blog puppy since the first of the year.
I thought I had found my groove just writing about my life and whatever I wanted but then I came across all of these resolution posts and moms with goals and I started feeling the heat.
I started this blog to keep our families updated on our lives…

Before I was Caleb's Mom

Before I was Caleb's mom I was certain that the love I felt the first time I held Ellie could never be matched.
I was wrong.
Before I was Caleb's mom I was afraid that Ellie may…

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

2014 was a good year and I could go on for days about all of the wonderful moments but I'm going to get real for a second.
Being a full-time mom has been the biggest blessing and it made this past year incredible but I would be lying if I said it didn't take a toll on my marriage.
Towards the end of the summer I was beginning to feel like maybe Joel and I had a baby too soon.  Although we never, and I am not exaggerating, clashed on what to do when it came to Caleb we…

Brave Miss World

You may not know this about me but I am a bit of a Netflix documentary junkie.
