Daily Life

Usually non scrapbook related, just about my daily activities. Sometimes interesting, sometimes not so interesting :)

Right now…. Baby edition

Tweet I thought it would be fun to document what Ava is loving right now. (since I’m really not good at keeping a scrapbook for her…yet) She loves grapes, this is the one food she will not throw on the floor. No sharing grapes with the puppies! She also loves broccoli. Peanut butter. She tried(…)

Right now…

Tweet I am loving: getting hugs from Ava – this tiny gesture alone is enough to make my entire day the start of Fall. I love summer but I feel almost giddy with anticipation for the Fall to arrive! fitting into clothes that I haven’t fit into in over 2 years that it’s finally cooled(…)

Just one of those days…

Tweet You know, just one of those days when things just don’t seem to go right at all. Yep, that’s today. It started out being a miserable rainy day from the moment I woke up. I planned to clean the fridge out for today’s Organization Challenge at Homeketeers so while Ava had her morning nap, I(…)

Summer Recap – part 1. Our Trip to Canada

Tweet Ava and I spent the last half of June in beautiful Victoria BC, Canada – my hometown! I hadn’t been back there in the summer time for about 3 years. So we said goodbye to the lovely hot and humid Chicago weather and hello to gorgeous mild Victoria weather with that wonderful sea-breeze smell(…)

It was time

Tweet Yep, sure was. Time to update this blog, change the layout, and go through ALL my past posts. Yep all of them. This has been an ongoing project now for about a month or longer. I tried several new blog templates/layouts and finally found one I like. I’m still customizing it but hopefully it(…)

My dream came true….

Tweet Exactly a year ago. Yes that’s right – my beautiful amazing little girl, Ava, was born exactly a year ago this very hour. Thinking back to just before I had her, I now realize how clueless I was about so many things. I had no idea how my life was about to take the(…)

Back from one adventure and off for another!

Tweet It’s been an entire year but we finally managed to get away together for a couple nights! Last time it was just for 2 nights as well and to the same place – the Wisconsin Dells. It’s super hard for us to go away together with having all the animals to look after but(…)

When you take a pig for a walk…

Tweet you get a lot of looks. Ah yes, Norman, our very lovable pig, has taken walks all over Illinois. As one of our most popular show animals and one of the most requested animals, Norman leads a busy life. We have walked him on boulevards downtown Chicago and made stops to take him into(…)

The Storms are Coming…

Tweet Now that the baby is in bed, the dishes are done, the dogs and pig have been out, the laundry has been put away, I have a chance to sit down and jump online while we still have power. We are expecting some big thunderstorms tonight so who knows if the power will go(…)

Zoey is 9!

Tweet Happy Birthday to my sweet girl Zoey, she is 9 years old today! She spent her birthday doing what she loves most: alternating her time between lying on the couch on a pillow and running through the backyard on this gorgeous sunny day. Happy Birthday Zo-Zo! And just because I love this photo of(…)
