Pushing Boundaries

Jace can no longer be contained anywhere…not in his pack n play, or any other baby safe places that we set up around the house. Turn away for a second and he is laying on the back of the couch laughing about to land on the other side while mommy rushes to grab a leg or an arm before it disappears on the other side. And he thinks it’s hilarious. Of course, he hasn’t actually landed on the other side[Read more]

Loss and Life

My grandma has been gone a week. A whole week and I still don’t really believe it. Yesterday we buried her ashes. And when I say we buried her, I really mean WE actually buried her. I didn’t know it was actually possible to do it ourselves but I guess when there isn’t an actual body they let you do it however you want. We even dug the hole. Well Patrick, my little brother Frank, and my cousins hubby dug[Read more]

Fun in the Sun!

Last Wednesday we took Jace to Schlitterbahn. He. Had. A. Blast. Patrick and I had season passes a few years ago and decided we would have more fun taking Jace and not going on any big rides.  We also HATE lines so we probably wouldn’t have gone on them anyway. The first thing we took him on was the raging river tube shoot.  Those of you that have been to Schlitterbahn know that it  is the longest ride there.  It is[Read more]

Patrick’s Birthday

Today is my amazing hubby’s birthday! Jace and I are planning a few surprises for him tonight. We are also eating dinner at Saltgrass tonight, YUMMY! Here’s the update! This is what Jace made for daddy! He was super excited to play with paint and while his handprint isn’t perfect we LOVE it!! As you can see he also liked playing with the canvas. Lol Dinner was nice. Jace was in a good mood and was pretty happy the whole[Read more]

Weekend fun

On Saturday we set up a booth at the flea market again. It was pretty nice. It wasn’t too hot and Jace did really well considering he refused to nap there. It is always the things we don’t think will sell that goes first. After the flea market was the mad rush to go home unload and pack and reload the car to go fishing. We did pretty good, the only things forgotten was a cell phone charger and the[Read more]

Is it Friday Yet?

It not even noon and I already want to go back to bed. I guess it is just one of those days. So far I’ve already had to give Jace a bath and wash the bedding.  Jace is having a hard time adjusting to milk and lets just say he REALLY needed that bath this morning… Jace is getting more teeth in so he hasn’t been in the best of moods so I was really looking forward to nap time.[Read more]

Flea market fun

Yesterday we went to the flea market and actually set up a booth. It was really fun but it did rain on us. We have been talking about setting up a booth for years and have never got around to it. We sold some of our old junk, along with some of my art work, and Patrick’s coins. For those of you that don’t know, Patrick has a huge coin addiction. Lol He’s one of those nerdy coin collectors he[Read more]


While most days are filled with tickle fights and smiles some days can be hard. When Jace is fussy, or tired, or just doesn’t feel good our days can be kind of rough. Patrick works two jobs so of most days it’s just me and Jace. Today I decided to get the grocery shopping out of the way before Patrick got home. BIG MISTAKE! Most of the time we go together but then it is so late by the time[Read more]

Jace’s Trip to the Zoo!

On Saturday we took Jace to the zoo for the first time. He LOVED it! he always likes going and walking around places and he loved seeing all the animals.  We loved seeing the look of amazement on his face when the monkeys were jumping around right in front of him. Right when we walked through the entrance it started raining on us.  Jace was on top on Patrick’s shoulders and by the time we ducked into the aquarium room[Read more]

Why blog?

I’m not a writer.  I suck at spelling and grammar.  But I’ve always liked writing down my thoughts and I’m always writing Patrick little notes.  Patrick and I have even started writing letters to Jace in the cards we get him for holidays.  We hope to keep doing it every year and that one day he will love reading them. I’ve always followed a few peoples blogs and when I had Jace I started following even more! I liked knowing[Read more]
