Elf on the Shelf: FAIL


Last year, like many other families, we started the “Elf on the Shelf” tradition. Not sure what I was thinking, really. We were living in a hotel (had just relocated from NC to WA) and for some grand reason I thought that adding yet another item (daily item, at that!) to our holiday traditions was a good idea. Because, you know, having to cook/clean/care for 4 children, do Christmas crafts, keep ornaments out of baby mouths, visit all the fancy light displays possible, photograph every […]

San Antonio Zoo Fun


Took my little ladies to the San Antonio Zoo yesterday. I love how the zoo never gets boring for little ones, no matter how many times you go. I’m so glad we went yesterday. It was somewhat overcast so there weren’t many people there, which made it so much more enjoyable. This one makes me laugh. Can you tell how impressed they were with the komodo dragon? Super weird looking creatures… proof God has a sense of humor! The interaction here was so interesting to […]

I’m single and ready to mingle, or just stand there with my other single friends (who rock, by the way, and are especially entertaining when drunk) and watching other couples twirl around the dancefloor. ) Not this weekend, though.

Fiesta Farms

In all honesty I was really dreading taking all 4 girls out to a crowded fall festivity, but I had promised I would do it, so we did. We had a surprisingly good time – aside from Amyah refusing to wear her shoes. Just sharing some photos from our day! First task to knock out was feeding the goats. There was one that was roaming around outside of the pen – and […]

101 in 1001


Wow, long time no see blogland! I’ve had so many changes the last few months. Maybe I’ll get around to sharing them, maybe I won’t. However, I am in a completely new place in life. Fresh start so to speak. I’ve seen these lists around the www and feel like it’s a perfect time for me to make one for myself. Challenge myself to get the most I can out of life. Obviously, as a mother I have tons of goals relating to motherhood – […]
