a sport’s fan? watch lots and lots of football. one of my favorite parts about fall is the return of the nfl season. i love cozying up on the couch on a sunday and watching football all day long. whose your team?
maybe an odd time to do it, but go camping! pack up the family and enjoy the outdoors and what this weather has to bring. my favorite campground in the northern illinois area? this place, by far!
carve some pumpkins! as much as you hate the mess of pumpkin seeds scattered on the counters and floors, the kids usually enjoy it so just do it!
it’s been a while since i’ve shared some of my recent favorite buys with all of you, so why not share some now?! i’d love to know if you’ve used any of these or now plan to give them a try!
alright. don’t judge, but your girl is already getting hot flashes and this thing has so come in handy! it’s small enough to keep in my purse and the fact that it’s also a power bank is sooo convenient.
if you like a good thriller book to read, this is it. it’s perfect for a quick read and totally not what you’d expect.
i’m a sucker for a good set of press-on nails and these have been one of my go-tos lately. they’re classy, yet durable, and not over the top.
and lastly, who doesn’t love a good body product and one that boosts energy at that?! i stumbled across this line a few months ago and now have them scattered around home and even work. it smells so good and leaves you feeling energized!
Sometimes people walk in to you life just when you need it most. That was certainly the case with you, Mason Allan.
When I met your daddy, I knew that part of falling in love with him was making up a whole lot more room in my heart for you and your sister. That was the easy part; loving you three comes so easily. The hard part, though? Watching you grow more and more every day knowing that time isn’t going to slow down; that these moments won’t last forever.
Today, you’re 4, and goodness, the past three years that I’ve been a part of your life has been have been the very best. I’m so thankful that I get the opportunity to watch you grow, watch you learn, and being able to be a part of it all. I never knew how much I needed a little boy in my life, until you came along. You light up my life, our life, and we adore you so! To the moon and back, buddy boy!
well, it’s that time again for another year of school and one of my favorite yearly blog posts.
our three brave girls weren’t so ready for summer to be over, but were excited to be back around their friends. i am so looking forward to watching more of them and the lessons that they learn – both in school and in life.
our girls started eighth, fourth, and second grade this year. we kicked off the new year with some of our typical “first day of school photos”.
and just like previous years, we made sure to do our first day of school “interviews”.
