Making Time for our Dogs

Making Time for our Dogs

I have loved my dogs since the very first moment I laid eyes on them. Elliot was a year and a half when I adopted her, and our bond is very strong. She was the first dog I’ve ever had independently, and she was my […]

(What Felt Like) The Longest Week of All Time

(What Felt Like) The Longest Week of All Time

No matter who you are, you’ve experienced what we all call a “long day”. As a momma, long days come by pretty often. But I have a great baby who doesn’t often give me trouble. But for some reason, my “long days” ended up stretching […]

We Got the Truck!

We Got the Truck!

Before doing anything in life, you should make sure you do some research before going through with something. Even if it’s a little amount of research, like lets say you’re strictly vegetarian (like Matty was for 5 years) and you’re going out to dinner with friends; […]

First Time Making Baby Food

First Time Making Baby Food

Good Day at the Pediatrician’s

Good Day at the Pediatrician’s

Mason’s second check up It’s been a wonderful day! Although we didn’t have very much going on, we did endure Mason’s 4 month check up at his doctor’s. He got more vaccines today (boosters from the last visit) and he was even better today than he […]

Busy Morning

Today’s posts should really begin with my night last night… it was rough. Although, I think I had set myself up for failure by getting in my pajamas and taking my contacts out before Mason was ready for bed himself.  Once my contacts are off, […]

Another Step Forward

Talked to a bank! This morning, after we were all showered and got enough rest, we packed Mason up and headed to our bank to talk about loans! Now, I have never taken out a loan for anything in my life, and that includes for […]
