Let’s Make the Bed.

March 1, 2017

Tweet I have always hated making the bed. So much so that most of my high school and college years I purposefully just slept on the comforter so I wouldn’t have to make the bed. When Matt and I moved in together we were mutually indifferent to making the bed. So our bed was constantly a […]

Sweet & Sour.

February 23, 2017

Tweet You know those Sour Patch commercials where they go “At first they’re sour, then they’re sweet”? Well, I feel like it’s an accurate portrayal of my life now. Or basically my life with a two year old. On Tuesday, I was having a day. I don’t even know what happened or what came over […]

January 17, 2017

TweetI have a confession to make. Remember how I talked about my new found love for Outlander? Yes, well it’s still going strong. So much so that I just rewatched season one and restarted season two. For Christmas Matt bought me the Outlander TV show companion book so I wouldn’t have to keep checking it out […]

Cry Babies.

January 11, 2017

Tweet Lately we’ve been experienced all the ups and downs of toddlerhood. Or I should say the twosomes. Because Riley turns two in a month. SWEET MERCY. And with that has come a whole lot of tantrums and meltdowns and inexplicable crying fits, it’s been real fun. And because I’m the sharing type I figured […]
