Why doesn’t Facebook have a dislike button?  I’ll tell you why.  Because there are way too many jerks out there who would abuse it. Appropriate things to dislike could include: I’m getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow. BOO! Our washing machine just broke, guess I’m not finishing the laundry today.   #notanotherbrokenappliance WTH? I got a speeding ticket for going 5 miles over! Dislike, dislike, dislike. But that’s not what people would use it for.  No, they’d use it to be Read more […]

The Wee One is a special guy.  I know it.  The Scottish knows it.  But even better, our whole extended family knows it!  The Wee One has been so lucky to have met so many of his extended family in the first few weeks of life. I want to remember these moments.  I want them saved on my blog because in my life, there is nothing more important than family.  It’s cliché but true, they make the good parts of life better and the bad parts of life easier.  In our family, we laugh… a lot.  We Read more […]

She’s pregnant!  YAY!!! It’s finally Facebook official public that The Sister and The BIL are expecting their first child in January of 2015 so that means it’s time to spill the beans here as well! Don’t they look cute holding The Wee One?  He’s only one day old in this picture! The Wee One and his cousin will be about six months apart.  How fantastic is that?!?!  We won’t find out if they’re expecting a boy or girl for a few more weeks but the family is getting pumped to have another Read more […]

My life is unpredictable right now.  It’s new and it’s busy and I’m still trying to figure out how to manage my time so that I can still blog while caring for an infant, a dog and still keep the house clean and all of us fed.  The past few days have been even busier as I’ve had my nanny family in town.  The Nanny Mom brought us tons of food and cooked delicious meals for us to eat, while Big C and Littlest C doted on The Wee One and McKenna.  It’s been a great visit but it meant I had no time Read more […]

Happy Friday everybody!  Let’s go over some of the survey results.  In case you didn’t get a chance to fill it out, you can always go back to this post and do it now.  Responses always welcome! I had a decent amount of entries but definitely not as many entries as I have regular hits (readers) on my blog.  And that’s OK, I don’t fault anyone for not wanting to fill it out and to those of you who did, thank you so much! Sorry but I won’t be sharing numbers or percentages, mostly because Read more […]

It’s July.  Sometimes I can’t believe it’s already July and sometimes I can’t believe it’s only July.  We have done so much in such a calculated manner (moving will do that to you) that it feels like one year flew and crawled by at the same time. Since so much has happened since July 2013 I knew I wanted to record it for posterity’s sake. The Mother has heard that you should only do one major life change or event per year.  Sounds ideal but umm, I think we failed that a million times over. Read more […]

And happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!!  I’m actually hosting a small gathering at my house today for my family and the neighborhood families I grew up with, so I will probably have some pics of that to share next week.  After our pre-parade lunch party we’re all heading to the neighbor’s pool/grill-out party and I can’t wait for a chance to get in the water.  For some reason I have been craving a relaxing swim for weeks now (thank you pregnancy and warm weather). The Scottish and Read more […]

July Blogging Challenge

Posted by & filed under Blogging, Guest Post, Relationships General.

So happy July everybody!  This is the month I’m supposed to have my baby!!  WHOO-HOO!!  Let’s hope that is the case.  For some reason I would feel so odd having an August baby after looking forward to July for such a long time, but we can’t really predict the future now can we? For now I’m trying to stay out of the heat, spend lots of time cuddling McKenna and The Scottish, and rest as much as possible.  It’s the calm before the storm, although I’m SUPER excited about the storm.  🙂 For Read more […]

Pregnant and Camping: You Would Cry Too if it Happen To You

HELLO FRIENDS, GUESS WHAT? I SURVIVED CAMPING, IT WASN’T SO BAD, AND LIFE IS GOOD, NO WAIT, LIFE IS GREAT! OK, I’m done yelling and my apologies because my title is misleading as I didn’t cry much on the trip, but it made me laugh so it stays! I am downright jovial about the fact that I’m done traveling (and moving) and that we’re at the point where we can just wait for baby boy to make his arrival.  I am lucky because camping went so well and was overall uneventful, which is definitely Read more […]

Yay, it’s Friday!  And I need to talk business (LAME).  First off, McKenna pics because my little girl is so adorable. Yep, we still hate the camera. But we LOVE relaxing in the new backyard.  We also love playing catch with a ball, chasing bunnies, harassing squirrels, and eating grass. Keep your eye on the ball at all times, don’t let Daddy get it! Such a sweet face!! When it comes to the inside of the house, McKenna’s been having a bit of trouble sleeping through Read more […]
