I had surgery in June, and I knew that I would be out of commission for a few weeks during the summer. Because of that, I promised myself (and Turner) that I would try really hard to do a lot of fun things with him during the summer once I had recovered from surgery. Now… Continue reading Summer of Fun 2018
This is one of those “better late than never” posts. I wrote most of this in June, but somehow never got around to posting it until now! I had surgery in June, so our families offered to keep Turner in Mississippi for us during the first week or so of my recovery. He had never… Continue reading Turner’s Trip to Mississippi
Even though summer doesn’t officially arrive until June 21, we’re already well into the 95-100 degree weather here in North Texas, so it definitely feels like summertime already. Last year, I made a decision to have a “summer of fun” with Turner, and we ended up having so many good experiences, mostly involving swimming! We plan… Continue reading #sweetsummertime18
Last weekend, Aaron and I took Turner to play at the new Crayola Experience at Willow Bend mall in Plano. It’s a 60,000 square foot space with TONS of fun things for kids to do. At the time we went, daily pass prices were $20.99 per person (discounted to $18.99 if you pre-purchase online). That… Continue reading Crayola Experience Plano
I was with some friends/acquaintances recently, and 2 of the people started talking about their desire to lose weight. One person has recently lost about 30 pounds but still has a bit more to go, and the other person indicated that she really needs to lose even more than that, but all of her past… Continue reading When a thin person talks about weight loss…
To my precious Turner Cole, Wow! You’re 4 years old today! The past year has been a lot of fun because you absolutely loved to PLAY. As soon as we walked in the door each afternoon after school, you always asked if we could go upstairs to play with your toys right away. Your imagination… Continue reading Letter to Turner: 4 years old
A few weeks ago, Turner and I were watching YouTube videos and we stumbled across a video of some people playing with Orbeez in an inflatable pool in their backyard. Tuner was mesmerized and said, “I wish I had some of those!” So I did what any typical millennial mom would do and whipped out… Continue reading Playing with Orbeez
I know, I know. I’m a couple of years late to the bandwagon, but I finally bit the bullet and decided to order a Stitch Fix box! (Thanks to my fashionista sister for letting me try on her Stitch Fix clothes!) If you don’t know what it is, Stitch Fix is an online styling services… Continue reading My First Stitch Fix!
Aaron is out of town for work this weekend, so I’m flying solo with Turner. We’ve had a fun, easy day so far, but when it was nap time today, things got a little rocky. Turner gave his typical, “I’m not tired….” speech. I let him mumble and groan for a while. He then shut… Continue reading Rock me.
Hi! I haven’t shared a blog post in quite a while, but I’m back! A few months ago, my husband switched from a night shift schedule back to a day shift (hallelujah!), which means that he’s home every night now. In the past, I would generally write my blog posts when I was by myself… Continue reading Girls’ Weekend/Mothers Day
