Welcome to Parenthood?

There were a couple of “firsts” in our household this past weekend. Our daughter’s first barf-through-the-night-session, and Mommy and Daddy’s first stay up all night changing pajamas, bed sheets and giving baths marathon. Gwyneth started to whine a little bit around 1:00 am on Thursday night. I was COMPLETELY out of it and thought it […]

Owies, Skinny Pillows, and a Belly Update!

I am now 31 (and a half) weeks along and it has hit me that I will be full term in 5 weeks. 5 WEEKS! That is a mere hiccup away and I still have SO much to do! My darling little girl woke me up this morning with a big snuggle before pointing to […]

Picky Eater, Healthy Recipe. Clash?

Do you have a picky eater on your hands? Need a last minute meal idea? Want a quick, healthy dinner option? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have the meal for you.  It was probably the easiest thing I have EVER made, and I even felt a little guilty for […]

Baby Boy’s Nursery Preview

While I am definitely not strong in the decorating department, I sure do get excited when the time comes to plan the baby nursery! So, after much debate, I have decided to do the baby boy’s room in a Vintage Sports theme! I am beyond excited about this, as my husband used to play football […]

Barbie and the Beast

I was asked to make a special little girl’s 3rd birthday cake for her party this past weekend. She wanted a princess barbie cake, and her wonderful mother pretty much gave me free rein to do as I pleased. Dream client!!! The little girl’s favorite colors are pink and purple, and she likes chocolate…and the […]

The Belly…Exposed.

Here we goooooooooo…. AGAIN! I took the pregnancy test on our Anniversary. I told the hubby I thought there could  be a possibility that I was pregnant and out the door he went at 9:00 at night. He came home with pee sticks, an Us Weekly and a tub of my favorite ice cream. We […]

Peace of Mind in the Pantry

Unloading groceries with a toddler who is trying to open everything while you are trying to get it all put away can be somewhat challenging. Especially if your pantry is a disaster like mine (used to be!). If this task isn’t done quickly, you might have nibbles in your apples and holes in your yogurt.  […]

Time Out

(Composed last night) Yep, Time Out.  But probably not for who you are thinking. Right now, it’s for me. Our Silly Monkey has been sick for just about a week, which meant staying home for the two of us. This is REAL hard to do with an active little toddler, so I typically take her […]

Biiiiiiiingooooo! Or not.

I mentioned on my little “blurb” that I enjoy “old lady” activities. Well, that may be an understatement. Yesterday, I played Bingo at the Senior Citizens Center. This was an outing I had been looking forward to all week, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded my expectations. I […]

So…Do I Just… Start?

Now that my blog is somewhat set up, I suppose I am to write something now? Huh. But… what? An introduction feels weird. Maybe I will just state why I am starting a blog.  I am completely new to the blogging world. I don’t read others’ blogs, setting up this blog has taken me quite […]
