If I had a stalker I’d like it to be this person…

This is probably the  only time I will ever say this… But I want a stalker. If I could have one person follow our little family around all the time it would have to be Mica Sansaver. Why, you might ask? Because ever since we had out first ever family photos taken last fall, it was […]

The story behind the bunnies…

I’ve received many inquiries as to where we got the bunnies for the photoshoot I shared with you on Tuesday. Someone said they would like to think we just stumbled upon some bunnies and the afternoon just happened. I really like that thought….. but….it wasn’t quite that simple. Let me explain. Mica presented the idea […]

Come one, come all to the Party Enchantments Royal Summer Coronation featuring Elsa and Anna!

  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this event. Gwyn and Cal are both  Frozen fans right now and this whole event just sounds so magically amazing! I mean, Elsa, Anna, Cinderella, Belle, Tinker Bell, Ariel AND Snow White ALL in one place to take as many pictures as […]

White dresses, floppy ears, rays of shine. Oh my! – A photoshoot with Mica Sansaver

Every now and then I warn you before a post that you are about to experience cuteness overload. Today is one of those days. I will prepare you by letting you know that you are about to see a little girl in a white dress snuggling bunnies. I know. It’s almost too much. Go ahead […]

A candid encounter with the Easter Bunny

While Gwyn is excited about the Easter Bunny this year, her brother, is not. He sure likes to talk about him, but sit next to him? Not a chance. I love this picture for so many reasons.   We are OFF on our way to Portland this year for Easter to celebrate The Hubby’s brothers’ […]

The World’s Toughest Job

Yesterday was one of those days where nothing seemed to go right. Someone was unhappy at all times of the day and when I wasn’t pulling my own hair out, I may have shed a tear or two and questioned my abilities as a parent. For the first time I left a store without the […]

Homemade (Salty Sweet) Oreos

I LOVE salty sweet treats. I mow down salty sweet treats. These Oreos…. are salty sweet. You can find the original recipe here, and my slight alterations below. Homemade Oreos (Makes approximately 3 dozen) For the cookies: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract […]

Cal’s 2nd Train Themed Birthday Party

I warn you, you might experience choo choo overload, here. Or, just a whole lot of Little Man cuteness.  Cal’s 2nd birthday was such a success, and seeing him enjoy every bit of it was just so special. Being the second born, he tends to take backseat to his sister’s activities, so having a day […]

One proud wifey

This post is primarily going to be about The Hubby. If he ends up reading this he probably won’t like it very much, but he’s not the one behind the computer, now is he? About five years ago we made a big decision as an almost married couple to quit our jobs. We were living […]

Our Spring Mantle and Decor

I don’t do a lot of decorating for Spring. Nothing really for Easter at this point, either, just some simple things that make the house look fresh and bright. I tend to stay on the more neutral side in decorating, but thought adding bright flowers would add just the right little pop of color.   […]
