Project Life Tuesday

Hello! Happy Tuesday!

I missed last week’s Project Life Tuesday after hurting my foot and having to stay off of it for a bit. I’m back though now (thankfully my foot is better) and I’ve got some pages to share! Yay! I’ve finished up November! ALMOST there! ;)

For this week’s spread I used cards from the Strawberry Edition and then one card from the Jade edition. It’s the 3×4 card on the right page.

I love using 3×4 photos across the entire page. These photos all went together and so it was perfect and showed off Luke’s cute footed PJs. I can’t get enough of babies in cute footed PJs. I’m sure I’m not alone in that. ;)

Included a little love note of Caylin’s into this week’s spread. She leaves me A LOT of them and I just always love seeing them in the album. Also a great way to get her sweet handwriting in the album. :)

A little close up for ya. ;)

I wanted to be sure I included this little story about the old man, Guiseppe, that Jack and I met when I took Jack to get his haircut. It was such a sweet thing.

Hope you all are having a good week! If you’re not following me over on Instagram, I’d love it if you would! You can find me HERE.

Right Now: Week 4

Hello! Happy Friday!

I hope you all are having a great week! Yay for Friday! I hurt my foot last Sunday (still not sure what I did, but it left me out of commission for a few days since I had to stay off of it – hence the reason for no Project Life Tuesday), but it’s back to feeling great, thankfully and so here I am blogging again!

Here are the few things I wrote down to remember this week:

  • Jack :”I feel like a gingerbread man in this” when I put his coat on.
  • Luke is SUPER ticklish on his neck.
  • Caylin’s favorite subject in school right now is cursive. She is loving writing cursive and it’s funny because in the beginning she was dreading it – now she asks to do her cursive work FIRST.
  • I’m learning to knit! Yay! It has been on my “bucket list” forever. It’s so fun!
  • Luke will shout “GOOOOOO!” if you said, “ready, set …!”
  • Luke is obsessed with puppies and the show “Paw Patrol.” It’s too cute! He calls puppies “pup pups.”

Have a great Friday and weekend ahead, friends! XOXO! Make it a great day!

The Right Now Challenge is a challenge that I have given myself to jot down some of the simple, everyday moments that happen in my life. Every Friday I post what I’ve written down for the week to hold myself accountable and also to get these little sweet, tidbits into my memory keeping. You can find out more about what I started this challenge HERE.

 

Organize your Photos

organized-photos1

My sweet friend, Rebecca of the Simple As That blog, is starting a 12-month series today called “One Year to more Organized Photos.” I am SUPER excited about it! I am ok when it comes to keeping my photos organized, but I am in MAJOR need of going through all of the photos that I have 1) lying around that need to be saved (older photos, etc) 2) backing up my photos to my hard drive 3) and weeding out and cleaning out the photos that I don’t want to keep. I’d love to just get a better system down for saving my photos, archiving them, organizing them and keeping them safe.

I highly recommend that you head on over to her blog HERE and read the start of the series today! I’m SO thankful she is doing this series and can’t wait to have a better photo organizing system at the end of the year!

Have a great Monday, friends!

Right Now: Week 3

Hi there! Here’s what I’ve written down this week:

  • Luke LOVES puppies. He’ll spot them anywhere and loves to watch “Paw Patrol.” He’s called “puppies” – “pup pups.” It’s the cutest thing.
  • Jack: “I love you, Luke. You’re the best baby God ever gave us.”
  • Jack loves to create his own superheroes by mixing up his Lego guys and giving them superpowers.
  • Luke is saying so many words right now. His favorite words are “pup pups (puppies), apple, pie pad (iPad, LOL), Dada, Mama, ta-da, hi and bye and GOOOOO! ;)

That’s it for this week! Have a great weekend!

XOXO!

A long overdue thank you

I’m sure most of you Mamas out there can relate. You know that glorious day when you realize that your baby is finally big enough to sit in the exersaucer safely and play so that you can actually some things done around the house and – brace yourself – take a shower … FINALLY! Ah yes, that glorious day! So that is why today I decided to post a special, long-overdue thank you to the exersaucer because quite frankly, Luke is at the age now (18 months) where I am wishing I could stick him back in it. For real. Ha!

Luke gets into EVERYTHING. You name it and he’s looking through it, pulling at it, trying to eat it, standing up on it, lunging off of it, chewing on it, grabbing at it, breaking it, moving it, throwing it … I could go on and on. He’s actually pretty wild (good thing he’s cute and we love him). ;)

So I just wanted to take a moment to thank the exersaucer. It was long overdue. That lovely, wonderful, not-thanked-enough, come-in-handy, wish-my-baby-wasn’t-too-big-for-you-now exersaucer. Yes, it has been quite an adventure since my last baby outgrew you and I passed you down to my little sister.

Dare I say that I shed a tear when I handed you off to your new home? Yes, it was a sad, sad day. Don’t get me wrong – it’s so sweet and wonderful to see my baby grow, but man oh man – do I wish I had something to stick him in every now and then that he loved and that would occupy him for a split second, just like you did.

Sigh.

So thank you, exersaucer. Thank you for those times when you made my babies laugh, sing and smile with your jingly toys and bright colors and the alphabet song that I could never get out of my head (I’ll let you slide on that one since you were so helpful). ;) Because of you, I was able to finally fold the clothes that had been sitting in the dryer for three days. And thank you for being there to help me so that I could finally shower. Yep, that wasn’t pretty, I know.  And thank you for those moments of solitude and for the times that I didn’t have to make dinner with a baby on my hip. I sure should have thanked you more when you were here, but just know that I appreciated you and gosh darnit, I am missing you today,  buddy.

Sorry to cut this short, but Luke is trying to stuff a DVD case in his mouth all the while standing up on a chair with one leg in the air and the other leg perched upon a bookshelf.

See what I mean? Boy oh boy do I miss you. Sigh.
