A mommy & me kitchen date

Kate is getting to the age where she is understanding directions and is always eager to help me with things around the house. Some of her favorite things are; bringing the clean laundry in from the laundry room, helping me empty the trashcans, put things back in the fridge, close cupboard doors, start the dish washer. And the list goes on... She loves to help her momma.

I am loving it and today we had our first baking session together. I have been waiting for this day for a long time! We started out with something non-edible and made play dough. Well I made it and she helped mix.
It was so fun and so easy...


 No cook Play-dough Recipe

1 cup of flour
1 cup of boiling water
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
a half cup of salt
1 tablespoon of oil

* I added a splash of food coloring to make it pretty

Mix all together and let it cool before you play.

All the ingredients

Splash of red food coloring


 I sealed it up & set it in the fridge to cool down while Kate napped

Sweet little foot..


























So, the girl wasn't a huge fan of it. She didn't like getting her hands dirty.
Oh my.
The smell instantly took me back to when I was a child, wasn't I just 7 and making things out of play dough on my table set in the backyard? Ahh, we played for about an hour on the kitchen floor until she decided the cookie cutters were way better than her homemade play-dough. I totally got stood up.
There is nothing greater than watching Kate learn and grow & I feel so blessed to spend my days with her.
Oh how I live for little moments like this..

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
