Hey guys!  It’s been a while hasn’t it??  🙂 I figured I should probably check in on my small slice of the internet and make sure it’s doing OK.  Looks a bit dusty around here and sounds pretty quiet but all is well! Here’s hoping all is well with you guys too! Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be a rejuvenating post filled with ambitious plans to start back up with more frequent blogging. The time has come, and it finally feels right to close this chapter of my life, at least Read more […]

The One Thing I Don’t Want to Give Up

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blogging, Motherhood, Relationships General.

Hi everybody!  Wow, it’s been a while, huh??  Obvious blogger statement coming up in 3, 2, 1… life has been a lot busier recently so I thought it was time for an update. First off, my baby just turned ONE year old on March 3rd!  We celebrated The Wee Two’s birthday by going to the Minnesota zoo as a family and then having a party the following day which also happened to be The Scottish’s birthday.  Needless to say. the entire week before was super hectic and crazy but everything went so Read more […]

I’m going to be real with you guys.  I miss this space.  I miss the freedom to write about whatever, over-share on details, and post a billion pictures of my boys.  It feels weird to let Drama Happens get so quiet but it’s been the right choice for me.  I’ve been blogging at Hellobee pretty regularly which has been really fun, rewarding, and sometimes challenging but in a positive way.  I’m also struggling to find the energy to write more than an update or two a month because I’m so tired and Read more […]

Call Me Mrs. Cookie!

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blogging, Wee Ones.

Hi everybody! Popping in to share some happy news, I was recently accepted to be a contributing blogger for the parenting website, Hellobee! The sweets generation just came out and I was pumped to get my first choice of Mrs.Cookie!  Is there anything tastier than a classic chocolate chip cookie?? Some of my content will be similar to posts on DH but most of it will be brand new.  I’m very excited to be joining another group of talented bloggers and if you’re a fellow parent and have not Read more […]

Yes, this again.  THIS meaning another post about me falling off the blogosphere for a while.  Hey, it happens! I promise I have a good excuse.  My in-laws are coming from Scotland for three whole weeks!  It’s very exciting but it means I’m going to be even busier.  I’m so pumped they get to meet The Wee Two for the first time and see The Wee One again now that he’s walking and talking.  The last time they saw him he was 10 months old and newly crawling. Despite how badly we want to Read more […]

Blogging About My Bubble

I’ve been feeling extra emotional these days.  Pregnancy hormones are mostly to blame, but let’s be honest, I cry at the drop of a hat even when I’m not pregnant.  There are so many thoughts zipping through my head at all times, so much to do in preparation for baby #2, and yet, so much joy and gratefulness in the everyday little things.  Life is good, and we’re really trying to make the most of this blessed time of year. However shiny my little bubble is, there is turmoil, death, sorrow, Read more […]

Oh, does that sound a bit dramatic??  WELL THAT’S HOW I FEEL.  The black monstrosity also known as the biggest whirlpool tub ever also known as our home’s eyesore is gone folks.  It took three adult men most of one morning to remove it but they were successful. I wanted to blog a bit more this week but it has been crazy town over here.  As you can see we’re finally having our bathroom redone and I’m doing really well… complaining about it.  The guys who are working on it have been awesome Read more […]

Let’s Catch Up

Hey everybody!  My birthday was on Sunday so I used it as an excuse to do a whole lot of nothing most of the weekend.  It was really nice to unplug and step away from my computer for a bit.  But I’m back and ready to catch up!  How are you doing?  Anyone else have an October birthday (aka the best month)?? I won’t go over my birthday weekend in great detail but I will share a few things.  The Mother totally spoiled me and I got a new pair of shoes and a new diaper bag!  I’m hoping to Read more […]

I LOVE reading “day in the life” posts from other bloggers and I keep meaning to write my own. Well, this week I finally got around to it.  This particular day we did not have a play date but on average we usually see our friends about three days a week. (My apologies for the lack of photos, I kept forgetting to take them!) 5:37 AM: The Wee One wakes up crying, loudly. The Scottish and I both wake up slowly, groaning when we see the time.  This is one of those crazy early days I guess! Read more […]

Cradling the Future in My Arms

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blogging, Heartstrings, Motherhood, The Wee One.

The Wee One caught a small cold last week. His nose has been pretty runny and he has a cough too.  Always the trooper, he’s been in mostly good spirits and sleeping pretty well for being sick. This past weekend he went down for his second nap as usual around 2 PM.  He woke up crying and upset at 3 PM so I went in and scooped him up.  I took him into my bedroom and we laid down together, his head on my shoulder, seemingly still tired but I could hear McKenna pawing at the patio door to come Read more […]
