Daily Life

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

A Hard Lesson to Learn…

Tweet But a very valuable one! The last few days around here have been a little crazy. Definitely not how I imagined the last week and a half of my pregnancy would go. About 4 days ago just when it hit triple digits temperature wise, our air conditioning decided to quit on us. Lovely. Trying(…)

Time for Cake!

Tweet Angus’ birthday was a couple days ago – he is 9 now!!! I still remember the first time I saw him like it was yesterday and the first time I held him. I was instantly in love with him and knew we’d be best friends. He’s my first baby and he’s been through SO(…)

We have a new baby in the house!

Tweet No, it’s not our daughter Ava – she’s not due for another couple months. But we do have another new baby that we recently added to our family… it’s a little white nosed Coati (AKA Coatimundi). We’ve had him just about a week now and he’s almost 3 weeks old. I really am in(…)

Can’t Get Enough…

Tweet of popsicles. I know, random right? It’s something I constantly crave and have been for weeks. Months even maybe, I don’t know, I really don’t remember how long. Our freezer is overflowing with boxes of various flavors of popsicles though. Today is for sure a day when they are greatly appreciated. It reached about(…)

Sliding on into 3rd….

Tweet Trimester that is!!! 3rd trimester already, O.M.G. So I truly suck at blogging. My first excuse was going to be that I’ve been busy, but come on, the baby isn’t even here yet! If I’m busy now, then what’s it going to be like once she’s born? Honestly though, yes things have been busy.(…)

Halfway Point

Tweet To quote the very awesome Ferris Bueller (oh how I still love that movie!) “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” How true Ferris, you are so wise. Obviously since I have not updated my blog in quite awhile (shame on me, I(…)

Moose turns 1 today!

Tweet Happy Birthday to our little Moose. I can’t believe our baby puppy is a year old today, and what a year it’s been for him. At only 8 weeks old, he had Parvo Virus which is usually fatal for such young dogs. Thankfully he made it through as we caught it early and we(…)

12 on the 12th

Tweet I thought it might be fun to participate in this challenge: 12 photos on the 12th of each month. I really wanted to do the 365 days of photos but I’m so not very good at remembering to take at least one photo a day. So here are my 12 photos that I took(…)
