Updated! {Ready, Set, Potty Train}

Ya’ll! I think we did it! I think we have reached the end of an era! The diaper days are behind us (except for nap-time/nighttime)–and it feels like a freedom I can’t explain! Now that this transition has happened 3 separate times with our girls, I can 100% say that I believe in the potty-training method we used to get the job done. (See my previous post below for the details!!) With our youngest, Libbey–who if you know her, is fierce, determined and … Continue Reading »


Solo Parenting

Our school year is up and running! It’s been a busy few weeks transitioning into new routines and different school environments, but thankfully, my girls are pretty flexible and have adjusted nicely to all the “newness” of the school year. It’s been on my mind for a while to write a little something about parenting– and in particular “single parenting.” As some of you know, our family spent most of the last school year separated. My husband took a new job about 2 … Continue Reading »


Mom Essentials {In Honor of Angie’s Baby #2}

This is totally a mom post! Especially for “moms to be” out there! In honor of Angie’s due date just around the corner, (eeek—so excited to meet Baby #2!!), we decided to do a little post about the essentials to pack in your hospital bag. We know each delivery, experience and baby is different—but we are hoping to give just a little insight for those momma’s out there or ladies who could be wondering! Frankly, when I was having my first baby, there … Continue Reading »


“Big” Girl Toddler Room

Like I said last week, I wanted to share some photos of our daughter’s new “big” girl room. We moved her out of the nursery since it’s already gender neutral and ready to go for this new little one (who will hopefully make his/her appearance any day now!!) I definitely went to town on the girliness of this room because I didn’t get to do anything girly for her baby room–so I let myself have fun! The initial inspiration  for her room started … Continue Reading »


Changes {the past few months}

YES everyone I am still here lol! I just realized I have not written a post in 3 months! Ah! (My sister even asked if I was still writing the blog with Liz and I assured her I was.) Our house has just been a little chaotic with lots of projects, traveling, and the normal stresses of life! Anyways, I promise I am still writing. To give you more of the scoop, I was in a little bit of a rut with Liz … Continue Reading »


Give Me Sleep NOW!!!!

I just wanted to share a resource with you all that can be a LIFESAVER for you as it was me! Since my daughter was born we’ve tried to use the Babywise scheduling techniques and wanted her on a schedule. As a side note, I know every parent wants what is best for his or her child and the method you choose is yours and no one should judge. For us, we wanted our daughter sleeping in her own crib and through the … Continue Reading »


2 Is The New You!

Today, my littlest girl turns 2. I’m admitting now that since she has no baby book, or for that matter, printed pictures in a real photo album, I’m laying some memories for her, here. #thirdchild (Photo credit-Angel Murphy Photography) To my wild, loud, and tender 2-year-old, Today, I can officially call you a toddler. But you are my baby—the one that will forever be my baby. Below are a few special things about you, from this last year. And also a few things … Continue Reading »


Valentine’s Day Traditions

In honor of Valentine’s day being one week away, I thought I’d go back to last year’s post about what we do as a family to celebrate “love day.” Just to update–our 2017 traditions are underway and this year has been especially fun to read through the hearts that I post on my girls’ doors each morning! My oldest daughter is well aware of this  “heart” routine and anticipates her little piece of adoration each day. While my almost 2-year-old, giggles and points to … Continue Reading »


Seasons of Life

Y’all parenting is HARD. One thing I’ve been struggling with these last two years is who I am as a mom. I went from a Biochemistry degree, a Master in Education, teaching high school and coaching cheerleading, to cleaning up poop and puke all day… Before I go any further let me state for the record that I am NOT COMPLAINING about being a mom or where the Lord has led me!! I love my daughter and all those years I yearned for … Continue Reading »


An Apple A Day

In the midst of the holiday season and staying on top of just “normal life” activities, I’ve realized that my oldest daughter, who is now 5, doesn’t have a lot of structure outside of her school day– before she leaves and after she gets home. I’m a newbie at parenting a school-aged child, and thankfully Macey-my daughter, is more than willing to be my Guinea pig with new strategies or activities I find. A few things about my big girl, Macey- she is … Continue Reading »
