Our First House: Home-Buying Process


There are SOOOO many things I want to talk about regarding our new house.  I kind of don't want to talk about the home-buying process because it was SUCH a nightmare!!  I hardly ever talked about it on da blog because I was so scared of jinxing myself or something (superstitious, much?!  LOL).  There were so many road blocks that I was just afraid of losing it.  And then closing!  UG!  Alright, I'll devote one paragraph to the process: Finding Our Home We knew the realtor we wanted to use … [Read more...]

5. Remember when Cupcakes was a zombie?  Well two days later, after we had a whole big talk about it, she did it again, but this time it was so much worse…. 4.

My Big Come Back {From Maternity Leave}

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 8.23.33 PM

I've had such an incredible, wonderful, amazing summer  / Maternity Leave with my precious babies.  But now it's time to get back to reality and return to work.  This past Monday was my first day.  The days have been going by fairly quickly which is awesome, but somehow, the days are still very long.  I guess that's because my evenings with my hubby / kids are so short.  I love the night time feedings with Tootsie Roll because even though they make me more tired, it's GREAT cuddle time.  <3 … [Read more...]
