Teaching Responsibility with the help of Pedigree Dog Food


  Growing up, my sister and I got our first puppy on Valentine’s day.  My mom & aunt were running errands and next thing we knew there was a knock at the door and a sweet pup named Harry was in our lives.  He was an incredible dog and sadly was let out one day by our gardeners. I remember racing around on my bike through our neighborhood searching for him to no avail.  After some time we adopted two {Read More}

Happy Third Birthday Aubrey!


My sweet girl. I love you so much.  You helped expand my heart beyond any measure I could have imagined.  Your birth forever changed me and your Daddy.  You’ve brought us joy, sleepless nights, incredible amounts of snuggles, and laughter.  You helped us yearn for wanting more for our family and working hard to achieve those goals. You brought us closer to God and the amount of blessings we’ve received are truly wonderful. Thank you for having your own personality, {Read More}

weeknight meal - baked potato bar

It’s no secret how much I love to meal plan.  Well, I take that back, some weekends I’m really over it and I just ask Jon what he wants. I could ask Aubrey, but that would result in Chicken Nuggets & Mac ‘n Cheese every night of the week.  And as we are gearing up for our big move, I really don’t want to have a mess of dishes to clean up every night. A week ago, while meal planning, Jon asked {Read More}

Family Photos 2014 Recap


Well, I think we survived.  Talk about a crazy, chaotic 20 minutes of photos!  It might have been 25.  The kids were absolutely bonkers the whole time.  Luke didn’t want to be held, Aubrey just wanted to swing from anything she could find. It started well.  Aubrey napped well and was cheerful while getting dressed.  Luke napped on and off for awhile. But I think he might have been playing possum and really not sleeping.  But man did they look {Read More}
