Happy Birthday. I love you so much. I'm so proud of the boy you've become. You're so kind, compassionate, loving and giving. You love to learn and have the best imagination. You're always looking out for others. You believe in fairness and helping others. 

I've loved watching you grow. It's the best part of my day listening to you and your brother talk and giggle and plot.


You've grown so much this year. You did amazing in Little League! Always baseball ready and giving 110%

Happy Birthday Jackie Boy. I love you more than you'll ever know. I'll always be cheering you on, pushing you towards your goals and dreams.

First day of school!

Yesterday the boys headed back to school. I was happy and sad.

Ryan dressed himself yesterday, shoes, socks and all. I'm so proud of him yet so sad on how little he needs me. He is in Pre-K this year. We love his school so much, a lot of his friends from last year got put in the same class, so he's very excited!

This kid cracks me up with those faces!

Jack didn't have the best day. A lot of his friends switched schools about a year ago and he didn't know anyone in his class, which lead to no one playing with him at recess. I'm praying today is a better day. There's nothing worse than you kid coming home crying because he was lonely :(

So incredibly proud of our 3rd grader! His teacher is so sweet! This is her first year teacher 3rd, she previously taught kinder, and she's so excited!

All ready to learn!

Tomorrow he is turning 8. I'll have a big post filled with adorable pictures up tomorrow. 

I hope everyone had a great first day back and managed to get through the carpool lane without killing anyone. 
 See you tomorrow!

Lost Boys bedroom tour!

When we moved into our house, we were so pumped that we just threw in furniture and din't really paint or decorate. The worst room in the house was the boys rooms. Just a bed, a dresser and a desk. Ryan was still in diapers so the desk served as his changing table. Earlier this year I bought paint, had B move all the furniture and we painted. As you can see from these pictures, we are not painters. From here on out I'm hiring professionals.

Jack's bed. 

Ryan's bed.

Over Jacks bed. (This was not my choice. B put these up on the wall before I could say anything.)

Over Ryan's bed. Still looking for something fun. 

The Night lights were purchased at Target. The dresser is normally filled with Legos and clothes that need to be put away. I'll wait until they're a little older to place more pictures.

Pendants from our summer trip to Boston.

A little magic over their door :)

The dream catcher was made by my mom and the cross is from her as well. 

Duvet and blankets purchased from Ikea. Pillow cases made my Nana and Grandma. Curtains from Target. I believe their bed is from Sears. It was a bunk bed that we took apart.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!

Hello Hello!

And Welcome to my new and improved blog! I've been wanting to upgrade for awhile and really give this little space my all. And last Friday, I finally did. Thank you to everyone who's stuck with me through the very sparse posts over the years. Next week, I'll have a room tour and a product review! See you then!

Someones got a case of the Mondays.

My favorite day of the week is Sunday. So like everyone else in the world, I hate Mondays. I have a million home projects that I need to do and I feel like I have zero time. The biggest/most important one at the moment is repainting/decorating my dining room. 

Our dining room and kitchen are attached/open concept. So the color I pick will blend into the kitchen. It's tough finding a color that will work and give me the color we so desperately need in our house. 

There are 2 windows in the dining room and dark cabinets in the kitchen. We need a light color but also a pop of color. Here's what I'm thinking.

I hate blinds, but B needs them so this is my compromise. If I can find a rug similar to the blinds, were in business.

I love this. We have laminate countertops that could use some serious sprucing up.

This would be the biggest project, but I love them!

At the moment our walls our beige. I can't stand them. It's just so ugly and does nothing to improve the look of the room. Picking the perfect grey is a project in itself.

That's all I've got for now! I hope everyone had a great weekend and thanks for sticking with me!

play date ready!

Anyone else feel like they spend more time getting ready for a playmate than they do for date night?!
Crazy! Hair is done. Makeup on. Jewelry on.

Ryan and I are off to a friend's house for our first playmate of the summer. I belong to an awesome Mother's group, but haven't been able to participate due to my crazy work schedule and both boys being in school.

Last night Ryan got his T-ball trophy. I think he's a little excited.

 Today is Jack's last day of school. I can't believe he'll be in 3rd grade! We've been so blessed to absolutely LOVE every single one of his teachers! 

While getting ready this morning, I found Steve Rogers in my bathroom :)

Happy Friday!

Mom life.

You know you're a mom when you say, "Give me a minute, Mama needs to get dressed"

And the kids hear:


Today is Ryan's last day of preschool.

He's grown so much this year. I'm so proud of him!

Hugs with big brother before his last day!

Cheers to summer!
