A trip to Park Silly Sunday Market

We finally checked off “a visit to Park City, UT’ off of our “places we must visit while we are living in UT” bucket list.  A few weekends ago, we went up to the Park Silly Sunday Market as a family of three and had a fabulous time.  It’s basically a HUGE Farmer’s Market /…

More Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Oops! I forgot to share these photos that I took a few weeks ago while we were in California. For a couple of days, my husband, Austin and I stayed at my parent’s house with my nephew as well. And let me tell you, Austin looks up to his cousin Evan SOOO SOOO much. He…

Happy Halloween!

I am sooo excited for this Halloween because this is the first one that Austin will be partaking in! Last year, he wasn’t quite mobile yet so my Mom took him around her neighborhood in his stroller to get some candy but this year, he is walking (or more running). For the past few weeks,…

N + J San Francisco Wedding

Last Saturday, two of my very good friends that we hang out with on a regular basis in Kansas City, got married in San Francisco! Their wedding was in a beautiful venue, in a beautiful city, and there were a ton of beautiful people there. Let’s just say they thought of everything, from hotel goody…

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

This weekend was absolutely perfect weather wise to take Austin on his very first Pumpkin Patch experience.  I’m not sure if I was more excited or he was about this, but it was definitely a weekend afternoon of fun! First up, the choo choo train ride, this is any little toddler boy’s dream and this…

S+P Michigan Wedding

We just got back from vacation a couple days ago and I am still staying up late each night trying to get caught up on work, blogging, and life in general! Sorry if I haven’t commented on your blogs lately, I promise to get back to it very shortly! One of the main reasons for…

A Birthday On A Farm!

A couple weekends ago, we were invited to a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday party!  We were so happy to be invited, especially since this party was to be hosted at one of our fave local farms that we’ve only been to a handful of times. The birthday princess, all dressed up in purple and in…

Books, Books, Old House, Fireplace, and More Books!

Disclosure: I am part of the Verizon Voices Style Program and have been provided with a Samsung Galaxy Camera and 6 months of service. All photos in this post were taken by the device. This is quite overdue, but a couple weeks ago, a local library had it’s grand opening!  You’re probably thinking, big deal,…

Our Family of Three in Manhattan Beach, CA

I am so excited to finally share these photos with you. These pictures were especially special for us as they were taken on Austin’s 1st birthday – the exact day (December 28)! The first set was taken at Poliwog Park and the second set were taken at Manhattan Beach. It’s kind of crazy to think…

Happy Holidays From Our Family To Yours!

Consider this an e-holiday card to all of you, my loyal and awesome readers!  This past year has been a whirlwind from caring for our newborn, watching him grow through so many developmental stages and just learning how to be a parent.  You’ve watched my little Austin grow up through the Dear Austin posts and…

Split Decision

Traditionally, this day, every year, is one of the toughest around our house.  In the past, it was the day that one person ended up happy while the other person ended up grumpy.  This year, that same thing will happen, except we have a third little guy that will end up being half happy and…

If All Weekends Could Be In Paradise

Here is a picture recap of our recent 4 day trip to Maui.  As you can tell there was a lot of eating.  I mean a lot.  As in I spent more time on Yelp than I ever have before.  One day for lunch, we went to 3 restaurants and ordered one small thing from…

Quality Time With My Two Boys

As the final days of our sabbatical wind down and reality is soon upon us, I’d just like to say that I wouldn’t have had the past 4 weeks any other way.  Spending quality time with Marvin (especially our alone time in Hawaii) and playing with my happy little 10 month old and seeing him…

Week in Recap via Instagram!

I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying the second week of my sabbatical so far.  And because working in list mode makes things go a little bit faster for me… here we go!  By the way, I’m officially obsessed with Instagram and have hardly busted out my big SLR this trip.  :/ 1….
