My Heart Knows Yours

January 30, 2013

The other day I was watching Wes play in his diaper (his favorite outfit to play in!) when I caught site of his bellybutton.   Now I know to some that may sound random, and just to clarify I’ve seen his bellybutton countless times per day for the past {almost} eleven months.  It’s not a […]

Workout clothes.  Who loves ’em? I know that the majority of my day is spent in either running shorts and a T-shirt, or (on colder days) running tights and a sweatshirt.  I know that may be frowned upon, but let’s get real: I am a mom to a boy who’s always on the move and […]

Pistachio-Rolled Chocolate-Dipped Apples

January 24, 2013

This past week AT&T (our internet provider) had a “network outage” which means that I have officially been without internet and TV in my home for going on 3 days. 3 DAYS! Although this has been kind of a hassle since my side job is all done online, I have to admit once again that […]

30 for 30

January 23, 2013

Today is my amazing hunk-of-a-man husband’s 30th birthday! Words really can never truly express how he makes my heart happy, or how deeply blessed I am because of his presence in my life. I say it all the time, but I married my very best friend – and for that I am so thankful! To […]
