Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

Cutting Butcher Block for an Undermount Sink

One of my goals for 2015 is to finish sharing our kitchen that we re-did in 2013! It's been over a year and a half since we revamped our kitchen. As most of you know, our kitchen wasn't in bad shape, it just wasn't what we liked. We kept the guts of the kitchen; the cabinets and appliances and removed the formica countertops, installed a new deep sink and amazing Moen MotionSence faucet, and tiled the back splash. We also added some extra cabinet space. Today, we are sharing a few of the … [Read more...]

Cruising with a 6 Month Old

Cruising with an Infant

I started writing this post right after we returned back from a cruise with our son, Ryder, who had just turned 6 months old.  And the holidays started to creep up on me, and well it's a new year and Ryder is 9.5 months old. Better late than never. We love to cruise. I've been on 15+ and Jon has been on 12+. We've done all the cruise lines. So today I'm sharing my insight in cruising with a 6 month old. Prior to leaving for our cruise, I researched and researched and found very little info. … [Read more...]

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold & Flu Season

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold and Flu Season

I am a Filtrete Brand blogger ambassador and was compensated for this post, but all opinions and selection of additional products used in this project are my own. The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Jon has been sick on and off for the past few months, and somehow Ryder and I escaped the nasty colds he has had. It finally crept up on me last week, and I'm slowly recovering. The stomach bug and colds are going around at a few of the mommy and me weekly meet-ups Ryder and I attend. No … [Read more...]

My One Little Word for 2015 – Balance

OLW 2015 - Balance

Balance. It's my one little word for 2015. For the past month, I've struggled with coming up with a word for 2015. My word for 2014 was present. I think I did an adequate job of being present throughout the year. I've put down the phone at dinner. Given Ryder my undivided attention when he needed it most. And I've tried to put down the phone while with Jon (unless of course it was needed). I felt like a few words were applicable for how I want to live 2015. But at the end of the day, my life … [Read more...]

Christmas 2014

christmas morning with the family

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I wanted to share a few photos of Ryder's first Christmas. I know we've been absent over the past week. I've been trying to take more time with family and less with work. It's a constant struggle of time when you are self employed. You tend to work around the clock--or at least I do! We spent Christmas Eve at my inlaws house and Christmas day at our house. After Ryder woke up we took as many family photos as he would allow us too until he completely … [Read more...]
