Aloha, Maui

We’re back from our wonderful Maui vacation and dealing with post-trip let-down. Besides spending a week in a beautiful place, it was just so nice to be together for all that time, without work or school or other life demands. We slept when we wanted to, ate when (and what) we wanted to, and enjoyed…

Out At Sea

Yesterday, Mike, Annabel, Leah, and Ted went on a snorkel trip to a few different points of interest (Molokini and Turtle Town). I stayed back for a few reasons: 1) I get seasick; 2) I’ve done that boat trip before; 3) I did not enjoy it (see number 1); and the biggest reason of all,…

Dream Days

We are currently on vacation in Hawaii with my parents and cousins Leah and Ted. It’s been a wonderful, relaxing trip so far. As we were packing, Mike asked me if there was anything in particular that I wanted to do while we were here, and I said I wanted to do as little as…

Daylight Stupid Time

Congratulations, we have survived one of the worst days of the year: the first day of Daylight Saving Time. I also contend it is almost the worst parenting day of the year (I will give that title to the day after Halloween because sugar crashes). Annabel asked me why we have Daylight Saving Time, and…

Fiesta Friday – Backyard Luau

I’ve always thought a backyard luau would be a fun and easy party to throw. It would be so bright and colorful, and who doesn’t want to imagine they’re on a Hawaiian island? Maybe one of these days I’ll convince Mike to let me throw one! Until then, a girl can dream.

Coconut Lime Sublime + Giveaway

When we were in Hawaii last fall, my parents watched the kids one night so Mike and I could have a date night. We went to eat at a restaurant called Fleetwood’s (as in Mick) where we had a delicious meal while we watched the sun set over Molokai. My drink from that night stands…

Oh Hey, It’s Swimsuit Season (Fake Excitement)

Hey it’s June, it’s summer, yay, blah blah blah. Annie’s last day of preschool is TODAY and she’s got a full summer of swimming ahead of her. I mean that literally: I have her signed up for weeks and weeks of swim lessons. This requires us being at the pool at 9 am Monday through…

Oh My Bel

My sweet pumpkin Annabel, You are four today! Oh my goodness. Last night as I hugged and kissed you goodnight I said, “Annie, the next time I give you a hug and a kiss, you’ll be four.” You said back to me, “Mommy, where has your baby gone?” You make me laugh all the time….

What Kind Of Day It Is

Every day one of the first things Annabel says to me upon waking is, “Mommy, what kind of day it is?” This is Annie-code for “What are we doing today?” Some days the answer is an easy, “Today is preschool!” But when I reply with, “It’s a Wednesday…I thought maybe we’d sit on the couch…
