Kids

I am in love with these two kids. Even when they drive me crazy all day, once they are in asleep in bed I usually just sit at the computer and look at pictures and videos of them and think about how much I love them. And I am totally biased, but you’ve got to…

Family Pictures

A couple of weeks ago, our friend Stefanie took some family photos for us. I was so excited I literally checked my email every 30 minutes this weekend to see if they were ready yet! When we got home from Art in the Park on Saturday, Stefanie had posted a preview of the images on…

May Wrap Up

I’ve been a big fan of May and it’s a little sad to see it gone. It was a super busy month, filled with family time, yummy cupcakes and lots of firsts. We participated in our first neighborhood yard sale, had our first out-of-town house guests, planted our first garden, and had our first ever BBQ.…

Hair Dye

The first time I dyed my hair I was twelve years old. It was a rainy day, and my mom suggested we go to CVS and buy some hair dye. I was in sixth grade, and a lot of the girls at school would always complain about how their moms wouldn’t let them dye their…

A Thank You Letter

So, I don’t often talk about my work work on here. I typically like to focus more on non-work related happenings. But a couple of exciting work-related things have been happening and I thought I’d share. First of all, the wheels have started turning for me to have a full-time position where I have been…

Friends

  We had our first out-of-town house guests this week! Our good friends Julie and Dusty, and their ADORABLE little baby Troy, are driving from Florida to Idaho and spent a couple of nights here in Missouri with us. We had so much fun!! We went rock climbing, ate some yummy food, played with the…

April Wrap Up

April was a month of taking a step back and refocusing. We’ve started clearing out a lot of the clutter in our home, renewed our motivation, relaxed some and learned to take things one day at a time. I’d say it was a pretty good month. I haven’t had much luck with my cameras though. First my big…

Happy Earth Day

We had some fun plans for Earth Day, but the weather wasn’t so great and I still had a pretty bad headache from hitting my head so hard on Friday night. So we just stayed home and enjoyed a long family nap time. The nap was nice, but I hate the feeling of sitting around…

Lessons Learned From Green Paint

This is how my weekend began… Do you know how hard it is to clean an entire gallon of green paint off a kitchen floor while there are two kids freaking out in the next room? Hopefully you don’t. And if you do, I can truly say I’m sorry. It’s no fun. Now, add on…

A Perfect Wednesday

Downtown Columbia is a pretty fun place to walk around. Oh, I’m sorry, I mean “The District”. (haha!) I left work a little early today and we drove downtown to check out Cool Stuff, a store that is going out of business. Which is a sad fact in case you were wondering! I think they…
