Last Day of School!

It's finally here.  The last day of school for Honeybee and Bug.  Today, my Honeybee completed her last year of preschool.  She is officially a kindergartner and ready to take on the world.  Bug is an eighth grader.  Last year of middle school coming up!  Wow.  That was quick!

On our 7th Anniversary...

It's hard to believe that we have been married for 7 years.  I thank God for you as my husband.  I thank Him for every mountain we've climbed, for every valley we've walked, for every prayer we have prayed, and for every new joy we have experienced.  I thank you for being my husband and for every step we have taken together.

Friday Frazzle: Friday Favorites

Hi everyone!  This week has been something!  Baby A. caught remnants of her father's illness.  That meant soaring fevers, visits to the doctor, multiple visits to the pharmacy after she knocked over the entire bottle of amoxicillin 😭, and finally the joy of seeing her come back to the bouncing and happy baby girl I know she is!  This week also lent itself to some pretty cool favorites.  Since it's been a while since I've done a link up, I thought it would be fun to Link up with Narci from Grace and Love , Ericka from A Little Bit of Everything, and Andrea from Momfessionals.  I hope you enjoy these items as much as I do.

WEEK 20:  20-27 March 2019/ Week 21:  27 March-3 April 2019
Hi everyone!  Apologies for missing last week.  With so many of the family sick and so much running around to be done, it was kind of crazy.  Last week, I reached the half way point in this pregnancy!  Yay!  I took advantage of it by walking with the family at the zoo and then nursing family back to health.  This week, I'm still working on getting baby A. back to 100%, but everything is pretty good to go.

Happy April!




Weekend Recap: Beautiful Weather, Family Time, and the Sickness Persists


Hello everyone!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  The weather was just amazing for us this past weekend and after the cold temps that picked at us while visiting the zoo, I was here for it!  Unfortunately, while the weather was beautiful, we were still plagued by persistent sickness. Baby A. has had a fever that keeps returning.  We know from her appointment that it is a virus that must run its course, but...ugh.  Still, there were plenty of highlights and we were able to have some cool family memories together.

Parenting Hacks for Surviving a Trip to the Zoo



Kids never forget anything!  A few weeks ago, I mentioned to the older littles that I would be willing to take them to the zoo on the first full weekend of Spring.  I hadn't taken the kids for a number of years and knew this would be the year that I wanted to do so.  Sure enough, the kids were super excited the Friday before.  They were more than excited and more than ready to go.

WEEK 19:  13-20 March 2019
Hi guys!  It's Spring!  Yay!  I'm super excited to see warmer temps and some longer days.  I'm sure there will be a post soon about Spring, but until it's shared....WELCOME BACK, SPRING!!!!  This week's pregnancy update is pretty uneventful, but I look forward to sharing with you all the same.  Have a fantastic day!

Dressing My Bump: Embracing Maternity Fashion for Pregnancy #3

(NOT an Affiliate post)
Okay, I’ll be honest here. When I was expecting baby A., I wasn’t exactly a fashion maven. Most of my maternity clothes came from graciously donated and loved maternity wear from co-workers and family members. There were functional pieces in there and even some beautiful dresses, but I still didn’t really have a maternity wear flow. Since I was more interested with comfort than fashion, I kind of allowed my wardrobe to diminish. Even a supervisor commented how he missed the business suits and flair I was known for when I became pregnant. I felt no insult because so did I. When I confirmed that S. and I were expecting this baby, I made a decision that I was going to find cute, functional, and budget friendly maternity pieces that would flatter my bump and keep my moods high. Thankfully, the Internet is filled with great suggestions and I’ve been having a great time sensibly stocking up!

WEEK 18:  7-13 March 2019
Hello everyone!  It's been a productive week though very busy.  The sun has come out a few days and the temperatures have been such that the littles have been able to run around outside for a while.  Daylight savings time definitely kicked my butt this week and S. and I kind of announced our pregnancy on social media.  Here's this week's preggo update!  Hope you enjoy!

WEEK 17:  27 Feb-6 March 2019
Hi everyone!  I hope your week was fantastic.  I enjoyed celebrating Honeybee's birthday and am looking forward to anatomy scans soon.  It's time to give our weekly bump update.  Hope you enjoy it.

Weekend Recap: The Sleepover Edition


Guys!  My tired is tired!  What an awesome weekend, but man what an exhausting one ☺!  S. and I were still up in the air about just how we would celebrate Honeybee turning 5 years old.  It's a milestone and begs a nice celebration, but with our huge family we just can't go anywhere.  Tuesday or so, S. suggested a visit to Chuck E. Cheese and a sleepover with the little cousins.  Now, full disclaimer, I am not a fan of Chuck E. Cheese.  No knock on them, but I think of them as little germ factories lol.  That being said, the one in our area recently underwent a renovation (per the flyer outside) and was ready for our large family.
