I had a wonderful day and felt extra loved with all of the phone calls, text, FB messages and visits! Thank you thank you for making me feel so special!

Cheers! I think we are over the worst of the colds! On the mend now! Also enjoying my new coffee mug from Russ and Ann! Thank you!

Tiff surprised me on my Birthday Eve with a special treat! Yum! Thank you!

Daddy's special morning treat for me

Chubber Cheeks! I met my sister and 5!! (she had 3 I had 2, William was at school)Kids for a birthday Brunch.  It surprisingly wasn't that chaotic!

Thank you Jenny!

Auntie Carrie, loved and adored by my girls! We had a great girls night last night, and unfortunately I didn't get more pictures :(

Mama and her girls...clearly not feeling 100% but they're troopers!

We got extra snuggles with William and Meggers, so good to see him and her again!! Thank you for making the trip down! xxo

29 and feeling fine!

I turned 29 early this AM, right mom? :) Age doesn't really bother and/or matter to me.  One year left in my 20's eh, no big deal.  Next year I turn 30? Bring it on! :)

I have much to be thankful for {including the littlest lady sleeping 12 hours straight last night, happy birthday to meeeeeeee!}!

It's a bummer that my main man has work and then grad school tonight, but he did a great job spoiling me already this morning.  He woke up extra early so he'd have time to run out and get me breakfast and coffee!  We will be celebrating this weekend, all his planning. He even set up the sitter on his own!

The next best thing are my girlfriends and most all are able to come and play tonight! Not sure who's more excited, me or Sally :)

So very blessed!

Cheers to another great year! xo

Morning Chatter

This video was from last week...before she kept her mom up all.night.long. Yep, last night was much of the same. This video also gives you a little taste of her strong stubborn temper, hence the not giving it to sleep.

All I want for my birthday is a one night stay at a hotel with a king bed and no interruptions.

In Need of some Zzzz's

This is about how I feel today...

Libby has been struggling with a cough/cold/viral something or other for the past two nights.  Last night was the worst.  I think I got one, at most two hours of sleep.  Sure makes you appreciate the healthy days.
We welcome Daddy home!

She still pops up for smiles.  She's a tough little cookie!

Not feeling so hot

Daddy and Sally "cashed in" Mommy's birthday coupon for cold stone!

Rapunzel Delivering our Sunday morning coupons

Sally and Daddy got to go out and play in the snow.  Little Sister was dreaming of the days when she'll be able to go too!
Happy Monday! Hoping for a healthier Tuesday!

Hanging Out

I feel like we're on house arrest.  We don't want to go anywhere because it is too cold and not worth it.  Plus with this crazy flu season we don't want to risk anything.  Daddy's been gone for school and a work trip, so the girls have just been hanging out.

Full on polka dots

Her favorite toy.  Good thing we have a fake one

Hard at play

Not so sure about this tunnel

You still there, Mom?

"Hey, how did you get on that side?"

She's a pro now!

Teaching Libby the tricks

Bathroom sillies...check out Libby's morning hair

Feed My Starving Children

Bring your favorite stuffed animal to school.  aka GERMS!! Lots and lots of Lysol when Miranda came home :)

Fresh from the bath

Rock and Rock

Sly grin

Polka Dots


After I put Libby to bed I sent Reid a message that he might lose his job of bedtime snuggles. It has been quite some time since I've put Libby to bed. I didn't realize how much I missed it.  Kiddies just know when we need extra snuggles.  She randomly woke up at 9:45pm, for nothing other than to snuggle for a few more minutes.  This has never happened.  Mamas and their Babes have extra connections, they know what the other needs without words.  Love my girls
Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, Happy Sunshine!

Play Voice

Libby is already mimicking a play voice.  I still remember the first time Sally did that too.  Love this age!

I also love having two.  Two is easier than one, once you get to a certain point.  Yesterday I was able to shower AND clean the whole house...because when there are two, they can entertain each other!!

Also, this happened last night

Reid started back up with Grad school, after a 2 month break.  He has completed 4 semesters, he has 6 more to go.  Carlson MBA is intense.  However, this mama is trying to stay positive.  For once, I wasn't pregnant, nursing an infant or sleep deprived so I could actually enjoy my solo night.  Cheers!

Staying warm

I know I know, everyone is posting about how flippin' cold it is outside.  I will too, but only because I love to look back at posts. The more specific I am, the more I can bring myself back to that time.  I'm sure I'll look back at some point this summer when it is super hot and sticky :)

Vacation is officially over

She asked, and she loves it.  She has asked at least 5 times since, to do it again.  Like Mother Like Daughter

No, she's not missing teeth, just enjoying her cookie while in the bath. Hey, she just vacuumed the floor, she didn't want to add crumbs

Picking out jammies.  Have I told you lately I can't get enough of this girl? Oh she melts my heart and makes me want another and another and another and another...

Meet Teddy.  It was Sally's turn to bring him home from school for a sleepover.  She taught him all about Princesses.  She also held his hand each night while she slept, so sweet

"Mommy, it is really sunny today, I should put my sunglasses on!" Not one mention of the below zero temps, just the sunshine, love the positivity!

Have a great day!

I'm so used to Sally being in this outfit I don't even notice it anymore...

I told you, she goes in for the snuggle every chance she gets!
