It’s Fall

The AC is broken again… Owning a home is great until something breaks and you have to figure out how to fix it. A few weeks ago it broke and luckily it was just some loose wires. Unfortunately this time it seems to be something more expensive. Hopefully it’s just a minor part that will be here tomorrow and not the more expensive part that we really can’t afford. Apparently if it’s the more expensive part you might as well[Read more]

I haven’t written in a while. Jace and Rylie have been keeping me busy along with all the things that keep breaking around the house. Since I last updated we had to fix a busted pipe that was pouring water out of our garage. FYI digging a hole in your concrete slab in your garage isn’t too hard. Patrick is pretty handy lol.  We haven’t been setting up at the Flea Market recently. Patrick has been having classes Friday-Sunday to[Read more]

Roadtrip 

A couple of weeks ago we went on a roadtrip with the kiddos. It was amazing! We tried to head in the general direction that we did 7 years ago on our honeymoon.  I’m planning on writing a few more detailed posts about the places we visited but we went to Colorado then headed to Vegas.  Colorado was a nice change from this Texas heat that is cooking us this summer. It is so beautiful there. But be careful about[Read more]

Flavor Your Life

I use olive oil ALL the time when I cook. Sometimes I use it in recipes, to sauté veggies, and even as dressing for salad. My favorite way has to be when I’m cooking vegetables but you can really taste the difference in the salad dressing between brand that you use.  I was lucky enough to try Zucchi 1810 100% Italiano Extra Virgin Olive Oil recently and it was amazing.  The maker Oleificio Zucchi started in 1810 in the area[Read more]

Little Update

I should be packing! We leave on Friday for a little roadtrip. 7 years ago Patrick and I went on a honeymoon roadtrip and since we just had our anniversary we decided to do it again! Should be interesting with the kiddos…  We are doing good. Jace is getting more grown up every day and Rylie tries to do EVERYTHING he does. 

Jace is now 4! My mind still can’t wrap around that it’s been 4 years since I became a mom. In some ways it feels like I’ve been a mom for a lot longer than that but when I think of it as Jace turning 4 it’s like NOOO!  He has grown so much this year. He is potty trained, we finally ditched the pacifier 🙈, and he stopped sucking his finger on his own. I stopped cutting his bananas[Read more]

ClearPop

When you have a child in pain you would do just about anything to help them find relief fast. Unfortunately sometimes getting them in to see a doctor is anything but fast. I recently came across a neat product to help with earaches.  My toddler has earaches a few times a year. Luckily we haven’t had one recently but I’m glad I have a few of these in stock for when he does!  ClearPop is basically a yummy sucker that[Read more]

Backyard Fun

Yesterday we worked on the backyard. Mowed and tilled the garden. We are making it a little bigger this year. Hopefully the squash will be a little more shaded so they don’t get scorched by the sun like they did last year. I’m hoping to pick up some more plants and seeds this evening.  We also set up the fire pit we won a few years ago! 😂 And then we burned our chopped up Christmas tree and branches that[Read more]

Hello March

I’ve thought about writing for a few days now but I’ve been watching Shameless on Netflix instead. 🙈 It’s a horrible show but so addicting! I watch it during nap time and after the kiddos go to sleep!  We had a tummy bug last week. Luckily it only got me and Rylie.  Rylie is now a WALKER! After taking a few steps here and there since she was 10 months old she is walking. We also bought her some new[Read more]

Back to Normal 

I’ve missed a ton of days. All of our days ran together and the only thing we seemed to be able to keep track of was who needed Advil next. Jace bounced back pretty quickly. Rylie on the other hand stayed sick for a while and even now has a little cough.  It’s now February. How crazy that a whole month of 2017 has already gone by.  Here’s hoping February is better.  Jace has been having night terrors almost every[Read more]
