It has been another week already! I cannot believe it. This past week has been so great ....more

Whole 30 week 2 Update – HALFWAY THERE!

I MADE IT HALF WAY!!!!!!!! Honestly there were times where I seriously did not think it was going to happen because MAMA WANTED COKE. But I can honestly say now that I’m halfway through I’m seriously not craving Coke like I used to (I mean unless someone is drinking it in front of me or I’m checking out at Walmart then I’m like GIVE ME ALL THE COKE but it goes away fast) ....more

We did things differently this year for our beach trip- we went with friends and we went somewhere we had never been before. Both were great decisions and we had a stinkin’ blast ....more

a letter to Ryder on her 5th birthday.

My precious Ryder, I know each letter starts the same- I simply cannot believe you are five. I know it won’t be long before I am writing you a letter on your 18th birthday and then I will surely be sobbing. It is so true what they say- the days are long but the years are short ....more

First Annual Summer Road Trip

If you would have told me two years ago that I would be able to hop in the car with the girls by myself and drive 5 hours and survive that- I would have laughed in your dang face. I cannot believe how much easier and more fun each summer is getting. Not that I don’t miss my girls being little, but this is a brand new level of awesome when it comes to parenting ....more

Goodbye, Kindergarten!

I am pretty sure it was five minutes ago when I was writing a letter to Rory on her first day of Kindergarten…. and here we are going into 1st grade. I thought I would just post a few pictures of her Kindergarten graduation ....more
