Y3W - Open those windows!!

Hello Warmer Weather.
Goodbye Sick Germs.
As Hanna says..Hit the Road Jack!!

It's going to be in the upper 40's lower 50's this weekend. 
That's warm enough to open the windows. 
In my book.

Still Here...


We are still here. 

We've just been a little busy with a double ear infection.

And double pink eye.

And now we are busy with strep throat. And that is just Hanna.

Oh Spring and fresh air....where are you?!

We'll be back in a few days when the new medicine kicks in.

Simple Pleasures Jewelry by Julynoreen Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to Julia from Everyday Mom Ideas!!

I'll be sending you an email :)

Five Question Friday

I thought I would try something different this Friday.   There is nothing wrong with that, right?

So here goes....

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?
What not to Wear.  I could really use a new wardrobe :)

2. Do you have any tattoos?
No but I keep thinking I might want one.  Maybe just a small one, like Hanna's footprint.  That would be cute, right?

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?
Oh boy...We haven't gotten to that age yet.  I don't have anything to hide...I was an angel ;) Daddy on the other hand.... ;)

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?
It depends on how far I am from the light and if there is a camera or not.

Who am I sister tells me I drive like an old lady!

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?
Chocolate.  I don't even have to think twice about that.

Simple Pleasures Jewelry by Julynoreen Giveaway - Last Day to Enter

The giveaway closes at 9pm ET today!!

Toddler Talk Thursdays!


Sippy Cup Mom

We are the highlighted blog this week on Toddler Talk Thursday!! Thanks to Family and Life in Las Vegas, Crazy about my Baybah, and My Life as a Sippy Cup Mom for choosing us.

If you’ve never participated be sure to check it out!!

This week's topic is:
Write a Letter to your Toddler as they are Today.

Darling Hanna,

Today your teacher at daycare expressed interest in converting you from the pack and play to the toddler bed for nap time. I don’t know that I am ready for this. You love your crib at home and show no signs of wanting to escape. I’m not ready to fix what isn’t broken.

You’ve been dealing with a lovely runny nose and a little cough all week. It is making you cranky and down right irritable. But we still love you!

I love that your favorite song this week is the ABCs. You are so adorable when you sing it because you miss a lot of the letters but the ones you know sound so silly but cute. You never forget the ME! at the end of the song though.

I am looking forward to a fun filled weekend with you and Daddy and Morgan. If you could be an angel and sleep in like you did today it would make Mommy Very Very happy. Very.

Love you baby girl!

Toddler Talk Thursdays- Temper Tantrums

Sippy Cup Mom


We’ve had a few of these in our house over the last few months. It seems like they keep happening for the same reasons and we are learning how to work our way through them.

They start out fast and you have to be prepared with your “Breathe Hanna, Breeeaaatthhee Hanna” or she doesn’t always remember to breathe.

Ok….they aren’t always that dramatic. Sometimes she just locks her body and screams so you can’t get her into the car seat. or onto the potty. or into her chair at dinner.
Fun times I tell ya.

I hear that 3 is even better then 2!

Simple Pleasures Jewelry by Julynoreen Giveaway

Sometimes as a Mom it is nice to actually buy something for yourself. I know {from experience} that buying for me doesn’t happen nearly as often now that I have a child. And as a result Hanna’s closet is full of clothes!

Simple Pleasures Jewelry by Julynoreen is a great Etsy store specializing in jewelry for women. Yep..nothing for baby here!!

Noreen is gracious enough to offer one of my readers 20% off a purchase to her Etsy sore.

What does that mean?

It’s means you are able to purchase a beautiful, handmade piece of jewelry for yourself and receive 20% off of your purchase.

Simple Pleasures Jewelry also offers gift certificates which is always a great gift for those hard to shop friends and family. {The 20% off from this giveaway can not be used on the purchase of gift cards. Sorry!}
