Games are pretty much the best. We love all types of games: board games, virtual games, good ol' fashioned charades, anything that gets people together and having a good time. But games only go so far when the group begins to grow in size. This summer, we have spent tons of time with our youth … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Favorite Group Games
Oh my goodness. My sweet baby girl. She's 5! Something about being a whole hand makes her seem definitively, unquestionably a kid and NOT a baby. NOT a toddler. NOT little in any way. And I'm not sad. I need to correct this, because I think I've communicated this pseudo-sadness to some people. Because I'm … Continue reading She’s 5, and I’m not sad!
Meagan and I love road trips because it gives us time to talk about all sorts of things that don't really fit into our crazy, everyday schedule. Many times when I have been driving for a few hours we start to play the newlywed game (or Know Ya Boo...whatever you prefer) together to help me … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 things we taught each other to appreciate
I LOVE pineapples. I love the taste, the look, but especially the legend of their meaning. I didn't always love them. In fact, I don't think I liked them at all until I was an adult. My dad was super allergic so, understandably, we never had them in the house. I think I had a … Continue reading Pineapple Passion
Soooo...we're promising ourselves that this blog will again be more than just our lists of things, but tomorrow's Friday, so we're stuck for now! I just looked through our drafts, and we have 7 ideas, some with multiple components. It's just finding the time to flesh it out. Here are 5 other things we've been … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Stuffs We Been Up To
Another week?! Life is going super sonic right now. I know we just did a "kid feature", but now poor Walt is left out, and since his birthday is TOMORROW...we decided to highlight our youngest. It's hard to tangibly capture the personality of a baby, and he doesn't have any great quotes yet (Although my … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Whatabout Walts?
Hank feature! A few weeks ago we shared some of Cora's winning quotes, and this week we wanted to do the same for our Hankasaurus Rex. But as we talked about specific things he's said, we realized there's more of an essence we want to communicate. Hank is Hank to the extreme. In all of … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Times Hank was
Good morning! As I crank out this week's list, I can barely move. Seriously. If you see me this weekend, please don't bump me, I WILL fall over. On Monday I started another bootcamp with my favorite trainer, Stephanie Adkins. I've used her bootcamps before as jumping points, springboards to progress in getting healthy. This … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Too-Good-to-be-True Health Hacks
Last night I spent less than 2 hours in my own bed. Between the oldest needing someone to snuggle her, Hankasaurus Rex wanting a drink of water every two hours (I did leave the cup with him!), and the baby needing to be held in the rocking chair (he is the WORST at teething) it … Continue reading i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
One of my favorite movie characters of all time is Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. His transition from child slave, to Jedi Apprentice, then Jedi Master knight, and ultimately Dark Lord of the Sith plays out the way I think it would happen to many people who discover they have the ability to force choke anyone that … Continue reading Completely Dad
