A Buggy Birthday Party


This year for Thing 1’s Birthday we had a Buggy Birthday Party.  This was all before I started blogging.  I wasn’t in charge of the camera, I was over seeing food, games, presents and hostess duties.  Needless to say the only pictures we got were of the cake and some presents being opened.  The party was super fun and I loved the bug ideas I found around the Internet. How

WLOW 1st Birthday


I can’t believe it’s been a year.  One year since I put up my very first post and decided to start a blog.  Ready to hear how all this started?   I sent a link to craftgawker to my friend Laura via Facebook.  She’s super crafty, she can sew, and she’s a great photographer.  I thought, “She has to know about this sight.  It’s too good.”  Then the following comment

Oh my goodness you guys.  I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’ve been blogging for two years today.  Crazy!  It’s been an amazing journey so far and I can’t wait to see what the next year, two years, five years, and beyond holds.   I almost broke up with the blog a couple times this year.  I promised myself I would unplug more and take a step back from

I love my birthday.  It’s right in the middle of 2 of my favorite people’s birthdays – Ryan and Dale.   If you can imagine, birthdays went like this : Ryan’s house for his party, at midnight we get a second wind because now it’s officially my birthday.  Go home and sleep it off.  Wake up, lots of water, do family stuff.  Go out for the night because it’s still

Owl-dorable Cupcakes


A few weeks ago our friends Kyle & Elizabeth had their daughter Mallory’s first birthday.  It was owl themed and Elizabeth made all kinds of cute decorations.  But my favorite things she made were these owl-dorable cupcakes.  You see what I did there? These cuties are super easy to make.  Bake off your favorite cupcakes and top with whatever frosting you like.  If you use a frosting white in color,

Thing 1 is 3!


I can’t believe my baby is already 3.  What happened?  I swear he just learned to walk the other day.  Oh wait, maybe the was Eddie.  In any case, We had a party for Otto this past Saturday and now you have to look at all the haphazard picks and act like you care.  Go!     My gorgeous step-mom, sister, and niece.   Otto and Taelase.   Chip and sandwich spread.

Thing 2 is ONE!


I can’t believe my littlest Thing is ONE!  Crazy sauce.   This past Sunday we had his birthday party.  I went a little themed for the cake and cookies, but that was about it.  I’m not one of those over-the top moms who can spend a month prepping and planning for a party…not since I went back to work anyway.  I’m not going to totally bombard you with party pictures.

You won’t believe who is guest posting today.  It’s Stephanie from My Not So Little Guy and My Little Punky Pie.  I miss her so much.  I wish Steph didn’t live across the country.  This girl can sing something fierce and made going to work a little easier everyday.  She’s a very warm-hearted and loving person who I am happy to call my friend.  Loving her post today.  You’ll see why.

I promised you recipes from Otto’s birthday party and I’m keeping good on my word. Since I’ve been doing well (except for the party…it was my splurge day. I was extra good all week) I’m taking a month long break from Sugar-Coated Sundays.  This will definitely cut down on the amount of “mandatory” sweets in my house.  Instead I’ll be dishing out all the birthday party recipes.  I think there

Garlic & Herb Roasted Chicken FEAT

Thing 1 has been very into drawing lately.  This week he busted out the Magna Doodle he got for his 2nd birthday.  His favorite thing to “draw”…having me trace his hands and me hand and Dad’s hand and Thing 2’s hand.  You get the idea.  I caught this the other morning before he could erase everything and have me start all over.   {Thing 1 just saw me typing up

Marinated Pork Roast


Last night I made a dinner that I am now famous for.  This year for my mom’s birthday, I made a Marinated Pork Roast with pan gravy, roasted carrots and new potatoes, and a Cookie and Cream Cake.  {Don’t worry, I’ll post the cake later.  Yum!}  My grandpa and Aunt Cindy were in town taking care of my mom.  Five days before her birthday she had a double mastectomy.  my
