Three Years of Amelia

Amelia turned three this month. It’s been a big year for her. She started school, got out of diapers, and discovered the Disney Princesses. She is a full blown girlie girl, preferring tutus to pants and requesting pedicures on a regular basis. She loves to shop and is responsible for picking out several pieces in…

Matchy Matchy

Every Christmas I buy matching pajamas for the whole family. Elijah has been such a great sport about this, wearing his jammies with pride, not just on Christmas, but throughout the year. This year, we did a Disney theme in the hopes that it would inspire us to finally take our family Disney World trip!…

If It’s Love

I am so happy about this week’s prompts! I’ve been wanting to put this song ‘out there’ as OUR SONG, but was unsure how to do it. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you see it) I’m not “telling” so much as “showing” this week. Enjoy!

Bye Bye Love

Today is Labor Day. In the spirit that today traditionally marks the end of summer and the lead in to Fall, I thought I’d post some pictures of my favorite moments from the past few months. Exploring around the neighborhood. Discovering new food trailers. Playing baseball. Ok, so I didn’t really care for baseball. Joyriding!…

Summer Recap

Summer is winding down. The heat has been oppressive but our days have still been packed with activities. I severely miscalculated the need to sprinkle in some down time and we are all feeling the strain of not having had enough ‘lay around days.’ I vow to do better next summer, although I’m sure by…

Long Time Sunshine

Around two o’clock last night, while running around my Med/Surg floor, I realized that just a short week ago I was in Florida, sitting around a pool, drinking wine, laughing with family and smoking (because I TOTALLY get to smoke on vacation!). This realization was pretty depressing. How did I end up back to work…

The Sweetest Thing

We’re home and I’m completely exhausted. I promise a full accounting of the past week’s adventures, just not today. And maybe not tomorrow…we’ll see. In lieu of a true post, I’m uploading a video of Amelia eating ice cream. It’s adorable, so enjoy! [vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/26119248 w=400&h=300]Ice Cream in Siesta Key from Miss Marina Star on…

Vacation

We survived flying three hours with a two year old and had a wonderful first day of vacation. Asher insists that the travel day was actually day one, but I hardly count lugging two kids, and all their crap, across the US as relaxing so I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. We…

Pack ’em Up and Ship ’em Out!

Today’s post is a list that should help you, my faithful, loyal and lovable readers, get to know me (and my craziness) just a little better. Normally before taking any trip I make endless lists, both on paper and in my head, of things that need to be packed. I obsess over outfits and personal…
