How we do Halloween

Halloween2014-7

Dear October, Clearly you haven't received the memo that you are my favorite month because so far you have disguised yourself as your Summer buddies July, August and September.  I'm doing my best to give you the benefit of the doubt, but our weekly forecast is showing no break from the heat, and I am not a fan.  My spicy candles have been burning all day long, my boots are lined up, and my ...

Weekend Recap

IMG_5120

Did everyone have a great weekend??  I sure hope so! Ours started on Friday morning when Greg surprised the boys with a day off from work to head to Disneyland as a family.   We had a great morning walking around, saying hello to some of the characters, hopping on a few rides and seeing all the fun Halloween decorations.  We also did a pit stop in Downtown Disney so the boys could build their ...

September Treat Yourself Tuesday

SeptTYT1

I have seriously missed being a part of Becky's Treat Yourself Tuesday weekly link-up!  Girlfriend is on like TYT post number 384902839048 and I can barely sneak in 1 these days #worldsworstblogger.  I still think about it often though, because I love her reasoning in starting this link-up!  All of us deserve to spoil ourselves daily.  Light candles, enjoy a glass of wine, take a bath, buy ...

LegoParty3

I am so sorry for the blog silence as of late but between traveling all over the place, enjoying the last few weeks of Summer with the boys, working, and just being exhausted by the end of the day...I just haven't had it in me.  Not to mention I have been curled up in a ball on the floor crying the whole last week because..I HAVE A FIVE YEAR OLD! Really though, what a milestone.  It really ... [ Read More ]

Miss you Maui

Maui19

Well we just said goodbye to the Grandmas yesterday and the house is already quiet (and messy) without them.  The boys had so much fun with their Mima and Nana visiting the last two weeks and we still wish they could have stayed longer.  Trust me, I really tried to get them to extend their trip.  To go on vacation and then still come back to their help was such a treat, I really don't know how to ...

Changing things up…

weight routine

In honor of Transformation Tuesday I thought I would talk about what happens when we aren't transforming....plateaus!  I have reached one.  In my blogging...in my creativity...in my exercise...in my eating.  I have become complacent in the areas that I don't want to be complacent in.   It's not an entirely bad place to be, in fact my routine is a fairly good one but it's not moving me forward in ...

It's been awhile since I have done a Treat Yourself Tuesday post so I am going to start off this week by treating myself to that.  I have always looked forward to linking up with Becky over at Olives 'n Wine for this weekly post because it's such a great reminder to take some guilt-free time for ourselves, or to spoil ourselves with a few of our favorite things.  Sometimes the simplest gesture ...
