The Holiday Season: What presents do you remember getting as a kid?

The winter holiday season is descending upon us quickly. Red and green is popping up all over stores, the mall parking lot is even busier than normal and I’m fairly certain Crate and Barrel had a Christmas tree up back in October. Have you started shopping?

Moments Around Our Home

Thing’s have been a bit crazy around here. I need to slow down again. I feel like I’m an all or nothing sort of woman, I set my mind on something and I obsess over it. I’ve been doing a lot of obsessing over the past few months. I’m here to declare my promise to […]

Pieces of the Weekend

Sorry for the lack of posts! My pregnancy issues got a bit more serious last week so I’ve been having a harder time with keeping up. My blood pressure has gone up again (which it did last time) so I’ve been attempting to relax as much as possible. Mitchell also had some time off work […]

Pieces of the Weekend

This weekend didn’t quite go as planned. Friday afternoon I wasn’t feeling too well, but we went out and grabbed a Muddy Buddy for Indie. We also went looking for a hoodie for Mitchell but didn’t find anything worth getting. On Saturday we had a lovely day at the zoo, then headed downtown to Village […]
