How can I not be adjusted to the time change yet? This is really taking its toll on me! I literally went to bed at 7 the other night just because it was dark and my internal clock was still being toyed with and……I was bored. But I actually sat in bed for like 3 hours because I just couldn’t justify going to bed that early. So I started brainstorming on Thanksgiving dishes! Read more

Garlic Bread Poppers

Have you guy’s ever woke up just famished? That is me this morning. I am so hungry but do not know what to do about it. Yes I know why don’t I just eat something? Like i said before, I’m not a breakfast person so I don’t usually eat breakfast food. I’ll probably devour any sweets that I have laying on my counter because that’s just what I do! That’s acceptable breakfast food right? It’s giving me fuel for the day. Granted I’ll probably have a sugar crash but naps are cool too. I can do that. I’m allowed. Read more

So first off I apologize if this post is short and sweet. I have a lovely 2-year-old daughter who has a double ear infection and we just surpassed night 3 with no sleep. I feel so bad for my poor baby girl. I have her on antibiotics and have tried the old wives methods but nothing is working. So I’m going to go try to pick up some of those pain relieving ear drops today. Wish me luck people! This mama and her little nugget need some rest. With the kids off from school for MEA and daycare kids here it’s going to be a long day.  Read more

Good morning to all my lovely readers and happy Friday. I hope everyone has some awesome weekend plans. I can’t believe we are in our last month of Summer vacation from school. I’ve been reading on some other posts on how their kids go back next week or started back this week, all I can say is wow. My kids sure are lucky, they don’t have to go back until September 8th. So they better enjoy this nice Minnesota weather we have been having because in about 10 weeks we will be complaining about how cold it is and the snow will start flying.  Read more

Happy hump day friends! I hope your week is going nicely. I have a nice cranky almost 2-year-old today who didn’t sleep so my day is lovely. Oh the joys of motherhood I tell ya, one day at a time! This is my favorite age, but yet also my least favorite age. They are learning so much and showing us that but at the same time they are gaining their independence and with that comes tantrums. My daughters new word is “no.” She absolutely loves saying it, although it is absolutely adorable, she uses it to reply to anything my husband or I ask her. It gets quite frustrating at times because we don’t really know if she means it, or if she just chooses to say it.  Read more

Is it Friday yet? This week has already been packed with lots to do. Baseball seems like it consumes my life these days. With 3 boys, they live and breathe sports. Little League this year has been fun. My oldest is on a traveling team and then another separate team. The middle one gets to play one game this coming Monday and the youngest just had practices since he is just learning the fundamentals. Soon enough we will be onto the next sport.  Read more

It takes more time deciding that them writing my post all together.For this post I got frustrated and kinda said the heck with it and threw one on there. TA-DA!  Read more
