Way To Go Weekend: What’s Your Favorite Sitcom?

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Humor, The Scottish, Way To Go Weekend.

Is anyone else ready to be done with this week?  Did you feel like you were slogging through it?  Or did you have to go back to work in between Christmas and New Year’s and you’re sick of hearing about people’s long breaks? The Scottish’s recent week off was a week off for me as the primary care-giver of The Wee One.  It was awesome!  Not to say that this week was bad, but it was tougher.  I’m feeling really tired again and despite my best efforts I’ve been lifting and bending too much.

Way To Go Weekend: Super Swinging Wee One

Posted by & filed under The Home, The Scottish, Way To Go Weekend.

Last weekend was The Wee One’s first experience on a swing!  This is embarrassing for a few reasons, 1) We actually have a swing in our backyard and 2) last weekend was not the first warm day of the year.  That said, it is Minnesota, and we are just now feeling spring up here in extended periods of time. Plus it honestly slipped my mind but he has probably been big enough to sit in a swing since he’s been able to sit up on his own.  Well, all was remedied last weekend. We went to a local park Read more […]

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 […]

Way to Go Weekend: Brain Dump

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Humor, The Scottish, The Wee One, Way To Go Weekend.

Happy Friday everybody!! I need a place to write down all the random thoughts swirling in my head and I figured we could all use a break from baby posts… maybe.  (No?  Good, because I can’t stop talking about him.) 1. Anyone else house poor and getting pumped about potentially receiving a hefty tax return?  We have two major changes when it comes to our taxes this year, a house AND a baby.  Cha-ching.  Or at least I hope so.  And I realize that you’re supposed to break even and all Read more […]

This is my second year ordering our holiday card from Simply To Impress.  I use Shutterfly for EVERYTHING else (calendars, books, prints, and ornaments) but I wanted to try something new for our holiday card.  Simply To Impress had better prices when I first started looking last year and now I plan on using them every holiday season to enjoy those returning customer perks. *Simply To Impress is not compensating me to say nice things about them although I would not be mad if they wanted to start 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 […]

OK, I’m done screaming my happiness at you guys.  Thanks for listening.  If you’ve ever bought a home you know the journey is often filled with many bumps, but luckily our road to home ownership was relatively smooth all things considered.

Yay, we all made it to Friday!  Cheers to us! I haven’t done a Way To Go Weekend in a while so I thought it was time to bring it back.  So how are you doing?  Personally, I’m feeling incredibly stressed out and crabby because we are moving next Thursday and my house is a whirlwind of packing chaos.  I LOATHE clutter and when my house is cluttered my mind just poops out on me and refuses to work.  To make matters worse The Scottish is being spread thin at work even though it’s his last week.

Hi Friends! For me, blogging is mostly about producing quality, well-thought out, and unique content, which tends to lead to many lengthy and long-winded posts.  However, I also believe another perk of blogging is the ability to post quickly and spontaneously with a simple message. This is a new feature I’m trying out and the message is TGIF essentially.  I’ll share something going on in my life and post a pic or two while wishing you all a happy weekend.  Let’s begin. The Scottish and Read more […]
