Fun at the Lake!


Hi everyone, most of you know we moved to a new house 2 years ago and we’re enjoying it so much. We’re right off of the lake so that makes for lots of fun fishing trips, and afternoons at the beach! And since we live in Colorado this is probably the closest thing I’ll get to living at the beach…

Our Family Mission Statement 2012


  I’ve seen this statement all over lately, and at this point, I’m taking it as a sign and adopting it as my 2012 motto!  It was either this one, or the “Keep calm and eat cupcakes” poster. And that just wouldn’t jive with my weight watchers plan. Did you know the poster was first created back in 1939 by…

Happy Mother’s Day!


I wanted to take a moment today to say “Thank You” to my awesome mom and mother-in-law! You are both so wonderful and caring, and the kids couldn’t love you more! Actually, I think they love you more than me! Probably because you bribe them with mints and let them have popsicles for breakfast. ;o) We are truly honored and…

Happy Birthday To Me!


Okay, since I’ve posted on all of my kid’s birthdays, I felt like I should post on my own. Now, I’m definitely not telling you all which birthday it is, but let’s just say it’s a big one and I’m trying to avoid it. ‘Nuff said. But, in attempt to be a good sport, I thought I’d share some things…

Water Safety Awareness & Guilt


I’ll never forget the day my son almost drowned. It was exactly 1 year ago from today. We had been at a private swimming pool, there were 4 adults there that day along with my 4 children. Somehow when there are more adults around, I feel more comfortable, but really I think everyone assumes someone else is watching. (This photo…
