A little zombie like

Tweet That’s how I was feeling tonight. Yesterday morning I was up super early (after getting barely 4 hours of sleep) as Ava and I were going to Indianapolis to visit my sister and my nieces for the night. I rushed around loading the car with our stuff, and then I spent close to an(…)

How to Travel Alone with a Toddler Without Losing Your Mind

Tweet Well I did it again. Traveling solo with my baby for the third trip. She has now been on 13 airplanes already. 13! The first time was when she was 4 months old. I wrote an article here on that with lots of tips on traveling with an infant around that age, and also(…)

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.

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(…)

Time for Cake!

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(…)

Tweet Finally I’m just getting around to posting some pictures of our honeymoon. We got to go to sunny (and very hot & humid) Florida to Disney World! So awesome!!!! Just thinking back on all the fantastic memories brings a smile to my face. We stayed right on Disney property at the Boardwalk Hotel. Gorgeous!(…)

Bring on the desserts!!!

Tweet Recently someone pointed out to me that stressed spelled backwards is desserts. How did I not notice this before? How appropriate since this is quite a stressful time right now AND I have a love of everything sweet. It’s been months since I’ve last updated this blog, it really is hard to find the(…)

A {bitter}sweet farewell…

Tweet Friday night we had my going away party at our house – it was a lot of fun but also sad cause I won’t be seeing my friends for a long time. We were up really really late and got up really early so needless to say not much sleep at all. Yesterday we(…)

Happy Canada Day!

Tweet Well it’s just about over now, but still….Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there! : ) I am still in Victoria for another few days and wanted to post a couple pics of my cutie neices. They left yesterday and are safely back home in Indiana. I just can’t believe how fast(…)
