Photo Story Friday-32 Month Edition

As cheesy as it is, me and the Hubs celebrate our wedding anniversary every month. I’m going to be honest, being married can be challenging, loving, difficult, fun and requires work at times. Every month we are happily married is worth celebrating in our books! We don’t do anything big or over the top, we just like to be extra lovey dovey that day. … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Coming Home Outfit Edition

When my first niece was born I was so excited my sister and BIL chose to bring her home in an outfit I had gifted her...they didn’t find out the sex before so it was tricky finding cute, gender neutral clothes. After that it became tradition for nieces (so far there are no nephews between the two of us) to come home in outfits gifted by their aunt. … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Cousin Lovin’ Edition

When I realized I would still be on maternity leave while my nieces were on Fall break I knew I wanted to get to Atlanta. Logan needed to meet her cousins, and see her baby whispering Aunt Krystyn again. She also needed her Uncle Matt to get to hold her (he met her when she was born but was sick and didn’t get to hold her). Tickets were crazy … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Birth Story Edition

This will be an incredibly long post. I'll try to make it more interesting with pictures. Monday morning, August 5, I was pretty sure I felt my water break at work. It wasn't a giant gush, but enough for me to notice and I contacted our midwife, Melissa. Melissa told me to come to the birth center when I could, but not to rush or panic. It was … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Reading Edition

This week I decided to read up on all the paperwork we have received from doctor appointments and from my HR department for FMLA stuff. I relaxed in bed, propped up my cankle and got to reading very carefully. Well, that was my intent at least. Leroy and Madelyn just couldn't resist preventing helping me with the reading. After I took these … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The (completed) Nursery Edition

We finished Logan's nursery this past weekend. We are very happy with the room and can't wait to see her sleeping soundly in her crib. We spent some time Sunday evening relaxing in her room with the fur babies. Thanks to all the friends and family that made special pieces for her room and gave me great advice when trying to decide … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Nursery (so far) Edition

We have made great progress on our Milkshakes nursery, but there is still plenty to be done. The tree decal came in a few nights ago, but I promised the Hubs we can add 2 segments a day. It is a pretty large tree and trying to tackle it all at once would be overwhelming, and I have been warned decals often lead to major fights arguments … [Read more...]

Photo Story Friday-The Chair Edition

When we started looking for nursery furniture, I knew I wanted a chair that was comfortable and neutral. I searched online, in stores and asked for recommendations from other mommies. I decided on a chair from and when it arrived I had to test it out with the help of our fur babies. Madelyn took the first test glide:   Next it … [Read more...]
