A little family tradition

We have lots of fun traditions in our family. The one we're working on right now is pretty awesome.

A playhouse.

Not just any playhouse like the little plastic one in our backyard. No, this is a full on mini house!
My grandpa built a playhouse for his kids, my dad and grandpa built a playhouse for my sister and I and now my dad and my husband are building a playhouse for Kate and Will and the other future grand kids.

Construction started two weeks ago and it is well on it's way. Chris found a design online and has tweaked it to make it a bit more custom. It is going to be nothing short of fabulous.

Check out what the boys have been up to...
Just a little weekend project :)

hard at work..

Day 5.

Kate already adores her "big house" as she so lovingly calls it. She was happy with how it looked on day 1. There is still so much to be done and the boys are trying to get it all done in the next month. 

The roof and trim are set to go on this weekend, followed by siding, the front porch railing, electricity and then they will focus on dry-walling the interior and all the other details. It will have a ceiling fan inside, along with a flat screen TV, lights and a front porch light to boot. This is the greatest gift, I can hardly wait to see our kids play and enjoy their new space.

I'm going to dig through my old pictures and look for my old playhouse to share with y'all. 

The hardhats will be back on tomorrow!

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…

TwistShake Baby

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!
