Yesterday we threw my cousin, Leah, a baby shower in honor of the baby girl she’ll be having soon. I am SO EXCITED for another baby in the family, and since the last two were boys I’m especially excited for a little girl. They are so much fun to shop for with all of those…

Thank you all for your cross stitch suggestions and advice! I’m really enjoying looking through everything and bookmarking different projects and patterns I want to try. As I’ve been taking the time to heal my back and recharge my brain, it’s nice to do something creative just for me (and for my cousin Leah’s soon-to-arrive…

So my back. I got an x-ray last Monday, and after a brief period where one of the doctors thought I might have a compression fracture in my sacroiliac joint (which is where a couple of the bones that make up the pelvis come together), it was determined that it was a really, really bad…

We’re squeezing in every last bit of fun before school starts in a few weeks. The kids and I have gone swimming, marshmallow-roasting, ice blocking, trampoline-jumping, and slip-n-sliding this week. It’s been fun but being Super Summer Mom is exhausting! But I keep reminding myself that I don’t know if I’ll ever have another summer…

Annie just finished her final camp of the summer (so many camps!) last week. This one was a musical theater camp, where Annie and the other kids put on Wizard of Oz/Wicked hybrid. The show they performed was very cute. Annie and two of her pals were cast as members of the Lullaby League/Lollipop Guild,…

We had a great trip up to the Bay Area last week to visit my in-laws and celebrate Mike’s dad’s birthday. The kids love going to the house Mike grew up in, and they have a blast running around in the backyard, playing with their cousins and grandpa. So glad we could go help my…
