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 […]

These Are The Years…

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Heartstrings, Marriage, Motherhood, Partnerships, Relationships General, The Scottish, Wee Ones.

These are the years… of going to bed at 8:30 PM because we’re so crazy exhausted. of rarely being alone together. of nothing in the house for lunch but sandwich bread heels and old fruit. Just enough to keep everyone fed. of wearing the same stained shirts and ripped jeans because any extra money goes to clothing for the boys. of calling each other Mommy and Daddy. of eating out less.  Oh, how we miss eating out. of watching Netflix together instead of talking or connecting Read more […]

Before I move past Grandpa and Grandma Scottish’s visit, I wanted to do one last post to share more of the photos we took while they were here.  We explored fun, albeit touristy places (when the weather was nice enough) and had a great time hanging out at the house.  The last time my in-laws were in Minnesota it was the week of our wedding and we didn’t have time to show them around.  Since we know they’ll be visiting us roughly every year we didn’t cram everything into this one visit.  There Read more […]

My Mother-in-law and Father-in-law or as we now call them on the blog, Grandpa and Grandma Scottish are coming to Minnesota for a two-week visit!!  YAY!!  We are beyond excited.  The Scottish is taking days off from work and this guy can’t wait to see his other set of grandparents. Geez, he looks SO grown up sometimes!  I think I’ll call that his salmon shirt, just like Ross on Friends.  🙂 My in-laws want to spend the majority of their time playing with The Wee One, taking him Read more […]

I’m sure you’ve all heard the newest royal baby was born on May 2nd to Prince William and Princess Kate aka The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  They had a girl named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana!! But you can also refer to her with the official title of Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge if you feel so inclined. Man, they’re a gorgeous couple. OK enough royal family fawning.  The real point of this post is that the new little princess is giving me terrible baby Read more […]

This past weekend The Mother, The Sister, and I threw a picnic themed shower for my brother and his fiancé.  We called it a wedding shower (instead of the traditional bridal shower) because we wanted to invite both men and women, we are on the groom’s side after all!  Overall it was a great success and now my brother knows just how awkward it is to open gifts in front of people!  🙂 We did a great job making it a family and guy friendly event if I do say so myself, and here’s how: 1) Read more […]

Well, we’re back from our trip to Chi-town and overall it was pretty amazing!  The last time we were there was in May 2014 when my Nanny Mom hosted a baby shower for us.  It was soooo good to see Littlest C and Big C (as usual) and they loved playing with The Wee One.  He’s at such a fun age! The Wee One met 17 new people (yes I counted) and a total of five different groups of friends!  Craziness.  We are lucky to have made such great connections in our time living in Chicago.  Unfortunately, Read more […]

Way To Go Weekend: Morning/Night Routines

Happy Friday folks! I’ve been thinking a lot about the things I do in the morning and at night and I was wondering, What is something in your morning or nighttime routine that make your life easier or helps you wake up/sleep better? In the Scottish household our average wake-up time is between 6 AM and 7 AM, aka “The Wee One alarm” because he tells us when it’s time to get up. Some days we get to sleep until The Scottish’s work alarm goes off at 6:45 AM and those days are niiiice.  (Though, Read more […]

Technically, The Scottish doesn’t turn 31 until Wednesday but we celebrated his birthday this past weekend.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know The Scottish and I recently got new and matching cell phones!  He has needed a new phone FOREVER and I told him we’d get him one for his birthday.  Then about two days before we were going to go shopping my on/off button broke and I dropped my cell phone in the toilet.  I swear these are unrelated incidents!!  I did not break my phone… although Read more […]
