Menu Planning Monday #43

Well! After a super-fun weekend it looks like I was slacking and forgot to post this week’s menu. So, while a little late, technically it’s still Monday where I live so….. Here it is! Monday Chicken Avocado Burgers  We ended up getting home later than expected, but burgers still sounded amazing on this Memorial Day, […]

How We Got Our Babies to Sleep Through the Night

I mentioned a few weeks ago that Baby Franklin is sleeping through the night and have since received several questions about how we did it. I found myself copying and pasting a lot of what I said to various people and thus decided to just write it all out.   I do want to first […]

Menu Planning Monday #42

Welcome to Menu Planning Monday! Here I plan out easy, healthy meals for the week so that you don’t have to.  The last couple of weeks have been a little out of the norm around here, and thus my meal planning has been a little non-existent. And with my husband out of town for a […]

Baby Franklin Turns 6 Months

Our sweet baby Franklin has turned six whole months! Which means we had the pleasure of working with Heidi of Glimpse Photography in capturing his milestone photos, and once again, they did not disappoint. I know it. I am just as amazed.

Mother’s Day 2016

About two years ago we discovered my favorite brunch spot. And I just have two words for you. Maple. Bacon. The buffet at the Coeur ‘d Alene resort is my absolute favorite and mostly in part due to the to-die-for maple bacon. So for Mother’s Day this year, that is where we went for brunch, […]

Gwyn and Cal’s Joint Birthday Bash

Our babies are getting old! Insert crying mama face. Months before Gwyn turned six and Cal turned four, we attended a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese where Gwyn and Cal learned that only the birthday child is able to go into the Ticket Blaster. It was then that these two deemed this event a […]

Menu Planning Monday #41

Welcome to Menu Planning Monday! For some, one of the worst parts about menu planning is actually deciding on what to make. I find myself stressed out once the late afternoon hits and I have no idea what we are having for dinner, so if I want to prevent that and stay on top of […]
