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]

The kids got it

The kids got it. 🙁 Everyone is now sick. Patrick is feeling a little better and now my headache is gone. Fever is still around. Poor babies are having the worst of it now. Fever that won’t go away. I’m alternating Tylenol and Advil trying to keep it down. Next dose is at 1am.  Today I made a cup of coffee. The only problem is I forgot the cup… I have spilled coffee all over my counters. I put a[Read more]

Another flea market Sunday

I’m sitting in the car at the flea market. Rylie is finally taking a nap. We are selling quite a bit despite the rain. We almost didn’t come. I think we all wanted to sleep a little longer this morning.  We will probably only stay a little longer then pack up. I’m planning on making fajitas for dinner later and possibly getting the kids to bed earlier so I can work on a wood sign. I’m really wanting to expand[Read more]

11 years

I missed two days in a row! 🙈  Yesterday we went out to eat at Salt Grass. It was nice but the service was extremely slow. Usually they are great so hopefully they were just having an off day. We decided to skip waiting for them to bring us a piece of cheesecake. Possibly could have been waiting all night. So we stopped by Walmart on the way home and picked one up.  Yesterday was Friday the 13th. And exactly[Read more]

Messy Beautiful Day

I’m going to keep this post short. Today was good but messy day. We have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather the past two days by playing outside. Rylie wants to eat dirt and grass and whatever else she can grab. Jace found a muddy dirt pile and managed to get mud all of the kitchen and dining room floor. It was messy and difficult but a Good day.  Now I’m laying with Patrick in bed watching Bones on[Read more]

Tiana’s Place on the Reimagined Disney Wonder

The Disney Wonder recently got a major update. We were lucky enough to be one of the first few cruises out of Galveston on it. It was simply amazing. One of the new additions was Tiana’s Place.  It was my favorite restaurant out of the 3 restaurants part of the rotational dining. The atmosphere was upbeat and very kid friendly. Jace LOVED all the dancing and live music. And it was beautiful.  Since we went on a 7 night cruise[Read more]
