April 18 will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s the day I followed my heart and walked down the aisle in to the arms of true love. Little did I know when I was out there on the dance floor that evening that I would be sitting here, five years later, having just tucked […]
I just bought this card for my husband. He’s due for a change at work and has been dabbling in the idea of a new role within his company.
There are a lot of pros to consider and a lot of moving pieces, but I wanted him to know that whatever he decides, we’re on board. And besides, how cute is this card?
Happy birthday to my husband, who turns 33 today!
This man has given me two beautiful children and over eight years of happiness. He’s the one who taught me to live life to the fullest (and to save a penny or two while you’re at it). He makes me smile every morning and reminds me to be thankful every night. I couldn’t have asked for more. Oh, and he’s a bit good looking too.
Happy birthday, Ry guy!
*He loves these two kids with all of his heart and would do anything to keep them safe, happy and healthy … forever.
If you wanted to reach Ryan and I on Friday night, you could have found us lounging by a fire pit, overlooking a gorgeous golf course, and listening to “Scottish Bagpipes at Sunset” at our local resort. The reason? Babymoon. Birthday. Just because.
Before Kelsey got croup, Ryan and I found ourselves immersed in a five-star weekend. After taking in the Music Museum, we continued his 32 birthday celebration with a stay at The Phoenician. Thanks to our grandparents for watching the little one so we could enjoy adult time. The desert landscape at this resort is so beautiful, we couldn’t […]
I found this adorable idea online. I immediately thought to myself, this is darling. i could totally do this. in fact, i have the supplies. i’m doing it tomorrow. Then, in complete excitement, I turned to my husband and shared this lovey dovey idea.
“Look, babe! I can make this cute frame and each day we can write love notes to each other in dry erase marker. Won’t that be fun?” He glanced up from the book he was reading and looked at me with this long stare. His eyes never blinked and then suddenly he cocked his head to the right as if to say, “You’re kidding me, right?”
Without exchanging any words, I gave him a look back like, “Come on. It’s cute! Love notes. Yay.” He continued to look at me like, “Love notes? To each other? Each morning? On a girlie picture frame made from scrapaper that is probably scented?” I then squinted my nose at him, made a dramatic exit and filed this under, cute-idea-but-ain’t-never-gonna-happen-in-this-household.
I can’t wait until Kelsey is older. She’ll do this stuff with me. #MEN!
We did it! We dedicated a vacation day just for us. Yesterday, we took Kelsey to school and then we indulged in an adult day complete with a mid-day movie (Mission Impossible 4) in the new fork & screen cinema. An all-day date with my husband … ah, just what the doctor ordered. *pardon the blurry photo. even the person […]
I found an old SIM card! One filled with tons of photos from years past. Here’s a photo of Ryan and I four years ago. Way before we had a toddler running around. Don’t we look young and rested? Ah … the days of sleep, rest and relaxation. The years when being social was #1 on our […]
Men and their remotes! I swear. They have to have a remote for everything! Which means our pretty coffee tables turn into storage for their ugly silver and black boxes. Last weekend I wanted to turn on the TV. Little did I know, while I was at this bridal shower, my husband bought a surround […]
If you follow my husband on Facebook, you’ve seen all the photos from our bathroom renovation (I’ll update this site with those next week). We are working very well on this project. From granite choices to cabinet and hardware selections, we have been on the same page and in total agreement. However, I laugh when […]
