Hello friends. It’s been too long. Do you ever look up and realize that time has seriously flown by without you realizing it? I’m in that time warp right now. Between finding a home, putting in an offer, waiting for all the people to sign off on it, The Hubs gearing up to move his… Continue reading Howdy Stranger
So, here’s the scoop: I am a terrible cook. I am also a terrible meal planner. When I do plan, I manage to make a pretty good spread, but left to my own devices, we are eating like second graders. Every night. Pre-kiddo, I was hyper organized and the thought of meal planning seemed like… Continue reading Spaghetti? Again?
Well, we’ve done it again. Just when you thought this household couldn’t get any more complicated, we had to go and add some more to the mix. Let me refresh your memories so we are all up to speed. In the last two months, we have re-homed my entire flock of chickens, sold most of… Continue reading Alright, just one more thing…
Okay, show of hands. Anyone out there actually have it together after having kids? I mean, really. 100% on your game, all the time? Without a nanny, housekeeper, or chef to assist you. Hey, you, with your hand up, share your secrets so the rest of us stand a chance, okay? Before I was pregnant,… Continue reading Keeping it together
Well, we did it. We moved our entire house, just the two of us and our toddler, in 72 hours. This month was insane, and for one reason or another, all our helpers were elbows deep in their own projects, so it was up to us. Do you know how much junk a person can… Continue reading The Big Move

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just can’t anymore. I feel like our house has been in a virtual state of chaos for the past two weeks. We have been handed a life changing opportunity and are just waiting to see if the pieces will fall into place. Which, for a couple… Continue reading A Weekend Away
You know how sometimes during the day, you’ll look up and hours have gone by? I feel like that is how the last few weeks have been. I swear, life just has a way of stealing the minutes from a day. The most ridiculous part? I don’t know that I have much to show for… Continue reading Mother’s Day
It’s been a rough week here at the mini farm. For the first time in almost five years, we are without hens. It’s so strange to think that it will be a few months before I’ll be able to head out to the coop to grab eggs for breakfast, for the cake I’m baking,… Continue reading The Devil Bandits and the babies
You guys, our girl is turning TWO! I don’t even know how it happened. One day she was a gurgling, snuggly baby squish and now, she's a sassy, independent child. It’s so fun to watch her grow, learn and blossom. It is truly a joy that can’t be explained to someone who doesn’t have kids.… Continue reading Keeping up with the Jones’…kid style
