{Vegas in December}

It’s Throwback Thursday, so let’s pretend that it’s early January for a second, shall we?  It seems that pregnancy brain got the best of me really early on when it made me forget to publish the post that I wrote about the highlights of our trip to Vegas last December for my sister’s wedding. Whoopsie! […]

{Spring Has Sprung!}

Well, it’s that time of year where the inside of my house looks like a war zone but the outside looks like heaven in the summer! Last weekend we somehow annihilated our entire outdoor to-do list with time to spare – and trust me it wasn’t a short one.  Among outdoor spring cleaning, re-seeding patches of winter-killed […]

{Building the Nursery}

What was once our upstairs spare bedroom is now well on its way to becoming bambino’s bedroom! We started early by moving out all of the furniture a few months ago and leaving it empty so I could start with as much of a blank space as possible. I took a few weeks to decide, […]

Mom - Ooh! I like it! You have so much fun with decorating projects and it’s fun to watch your creativity flow. I was never able to do projects like that for various reasons so it makes me very happy that you and your sisters are able to have fun at it. Luckily you all inherited MY creative genes and then took them to a higher level!

I am so excited to see the finished nursery and especially excited to meet the precious wee one that will complete it!

I love you xoxo

{Half Baked}

Tomorrow we’ll be 22 weeks and well past the half-way point in the countdown to meet our sweet baby! It’s hard for me to grasp just how fast it’s gone by especially knowing the next four months will be no different, and Davin and I will be parents before we know it! Overall I feel really, […]

Dorothy - Now that it’s too late , and he’s named….Toby could have been another alternate, couldn’t it ? I don’t know from whence that came, but it’s been in my mind.

Lisa G. - Toby’s cute Gramma, but you’re right, it’s a little too late now! haha Oscar definitely comes when called now =)

{Oscar the Great!} » - […] explained how he got the name Oscar at the end of this post.  It boiled down to that and Davin calling him Oscar fifty times in the first 30 seconds we had him […]

{Apple, Apple Crisp, Yo}

It might be a strange time of year to be talking about warm, cinnamon-y desserts, but making this recipe on a whim last weekend was the best decision I made all week.  It was the perfect after-dinner treat to warm our blood since this “spring” weather decided to shit snow all over us in the middle […]
