Out of nowhere a week or two ago I noticed my son walking around with one of Lil’ J’s stuffed animals. An ugly orange cat she got as a part of her birthday party package a couple of years ago. She has hoards of stuffed animals on her bed, so she wasn’t missing one less…. read the rest.
Growing up my parents drilled in us that we were to be respectful of adults and have good manners. We called adults Mr./Ms Last Name, answered yes ma’am/ sir, and always said please and thank you. I have found we haven’t been as strict with our kids so far, and there are some things we… read the rest.
How many baby showers have you been to? One? A handful? More than you can count? My own baby shower with Lil’ J was one of the first ones I had been to. I’ve helped plan a few and many to many more since then, and today I wanted to share some special keepsake ideas… read the rest.

Oh, and I skipped Christmas cards and sent New Years cards. It’s totally going to be my new thing. Who wants one more thing… read the rest.
I know if I was a good blogger I would have posted this days ago. But starting on our anniversary getaway, I finally took time time off from all work, which even included a little break from my precious blog. My husband did the same and we had more fun than I can even describe. I… read the rest.
As I lie in bed thinking about how fun it has been to get away for a few days just to celebrate us I wonder how the next 10 years of marriage will go. Are the first 10 years the hardest? I ask myself. If so, we’ve got this in the bag. Just then my… read the rest.
