June 2013

About a year ago I read Gretchen Rubin's book The Happiness Project and LOVED it. While I didn't embark on my own happiness project, I did take many of her suggestions into account and started actively thinking about how I could increase my happiness on a daily basis. Well, for at least awhile :) Like [...]

ruby turns 1!

Our favorite little Westie pal Ruby is 1 year old today! She has brought so much joy to our lives and we can't imagine life without our furry "daughter!" I can't believe how itty bitty she was when we brought her home! Ruby celebrated this morning with an extra special treat from us - HAPPY 1st [...]

body after baby

I think every expectant mother wonders throughout her pregnancy what exactly her body will look like after baby. How exactly will that bump ever transform back to a flat tummy?

s'mores bars

If my monthly cupcake posts haven't already given it away, it's no secret that I have a total sweet tooth. I am constantly scanning Pinterest for new goodies to create in the kitchen. Over Memorial Day weekend, J's family got together out at their cabin on the lake, and I wanted something new to bring [...]

prepping the pup

My main pal Ruby pup is about to experience some BIG changes - I definitely treat her like my baby and she's about to lose her "only child" status :) We've enrolled Ruby in another round of obedience classes to work on some lingering behavior issues. Our main concerns have been jumping on visitors when [...]

belly bump to bassinet

J and I are officially graduates of the Belly Bump to Bassinet course - I like to think of it as my mom license :) We took the 6 week prepared childbirth course offered by our hospital, and I'm SO happy we did. The class covered everything from baby care and breastfeeding to mommy care [...]
