Wordless Wednesday – Easter Festivities!

If you haven’t noticed, holidays tend to sneak up on me.  Like, one minute there are 2-3 weeks to prepare, and then BAM – I’m running around the house the night before the holiday like a lunatic looking for dresses for the girls to wear to church.  And it doesn’t help that Easter is one […]

Happy Birthday Greenleigh & Happy Mom-iversary to Me!

Our NYC Staycation

This past weekend, my husband and I were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding in New York City.  When we first got the save the date months ago, I assumed my husband would be going alone, but after securing some sitters the girls would love (my in-laws), it was determined that we could […]

DIY Easter Garland: A Simple & Easy Way to Spruce Up for Spring
