Happy NYE!

The baby slept from about 11pm to 6am. (Wahoo!) I’m pretty tired and should probably go back to sleep, but instead I’m laying here in bed sipping a delicious cup of piping hot coffee and thinking of the new year. I was pregnant for most of 2017, so this will be our first full year… [Read More]

Christmas 2017

We look forward to Christmas so much, and then it’s over in the blink of an eye. From about Thursday to Monday (Christmas day) we had lots of friends and family to see and a few Christmas gatherings to attend, while I tried to watch lots of Christmas movies, bake, and cram all the festiveness… [Read More]

A Very Milly Christmas

Having the holidays off for maternity leave is pretty fabulous. Right now I’ve got a sweet sleeping babe right next to me, a delicious cup of coffee in a Christmas mug, and Friends on TV. (I really should put on a Christmas movie… oh well!) Since this is Milly’s first Christmas, I’ve made it my… [Read More]

Newborn Stocking Stuffers

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. I always loved opening up my stocking first thing on Christmas morning. My mom is an excellent stocking stuffer, and now it’s my turn! I’m not sure what I’ll put in Emilia’s stocking, but I’m envisioning hair bows, baby lotion, cute socks, and a warm winter hat. Here… [Read More]

Emilia’s Newborn Christmas List

I’m not sure if most people Christmas shop for their newborns or not, but I can’t help it. Milly is so much fun to shop for, and I’ve already figured out most of what I want to get her. In order to keep myself from going overboard, I want to follow the “something they want,… [Read More]

Wenatchee Festival of Trees

Happy December 1st!! Let all the Christmas festivities commence! If you’re anything like us, you don’t wait for December 1st to roll around before getting into the holiday spirit. My halls were decked before Thanksgiving. I always do it the weekend before, so when Thanksgiving is over it’s done and I can enjoy it rather than dragging… [Read More]

Thanksgiving 2017

December is sneaking up on us… anyone else feeling like they are already behind on Christmas shopping? I made an order today to cross a couple things off the list. (Thank you Old Navy, for extending your cyber Monday sale to today!!) Having a baby to shop for is so much fun! Thanksgiving this year… [Read More]

Halloween 2017

I really love this time of year, when fall melts into the holidays. And now that we have our baby girl, I know my love for this season is going to really grow! It’s so crazy to think that I was due on Halloween, with no clue of whether or not I’d actually have her… [Read More]

Fall Baby Shower Brunch

On the last day in September my mom hosted a beautiful fall baby shower brunch for me and baby girl. I got to help with the details which I love, and it went flawlessly. When we were discussing how to seat everybody, I mentioned how I’d seen short tables where people sit on pillows on… [Read More]

Sweet September Shower

In September my hubby’s mom and step-mom threw a very sweet baby shower where I got to celebrate with lots of the lovely ladies on his side of the family. The weather was beautiful, and it felt like summer wanted to stick around just a little longer. There were lots of pink decorations, a gorgeous… [Read More]
