Our Wedding in an Instagram Story

On Monday, Jeff and I passed our 8 year milestone of being married and Irma came to crash our wedding anniversary.  Luckily, the hurricane weakened significantly by the time it reached us and we made it with no damage, flooding, or injury. We didn’t even lose power.  Thank God! Needless to say, we didn’t celebrate at all […]

Unimpressed Toddler

It’s so funny how my babies’ personalities are so different. Arielle is happy and friendly, Zavier is sweet and goofy…and Alyssa is, well, unimpressed. I have all these photos of her where her facial expression says, “meh!” and when people try to coo at her or make her giggle, she just gives them the stink […]

Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet 2013

Happy Halloween, y’all!  This year A&Z had a ton of fun dressing up in their costumes and trick-or-treating.  Here’s what they were for Halloween:

Friday Faves: Songs of Summer 2013

Happy first day of summer!! Pack your emergency summer fun kit and get in the car, roll down the windows, and turn up the stereo to my favorite songs of summer 2013! These jams have a fresh sound, yet old skool groove that make me feel sexy and sophisticated and forget that I’m a frumpy mother […]

Arielle’s Stage Debut

This past Saturday, Arielle made her first stage début at her dance recital where she tapped her way into the audience’s hearts to the song “Be Our Guest” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.   After weeks and weeks taking her to dance classes at 9-freaking-a.m. on Saturday mornings, it all paid off.  She did all […]

Thursdays on the Vine

This is the first installment of the newest Mommy A-Z series: Thursdays on the Vine.  Last week, I posted on my favorite new mobile app called Vine, which allows you to record short ‘n sweet 6 second videos.  It’s so great for capturing everyday moments of the kids in motion!  You can read all about Vine […]

Friday Faves: Vine

I’m loving Vine right now.  It’s a mobile app that allows you to record short 6 second videos that loop and you can easily share with your friends. Just when you thought you needed yet another social media network to stay on top of besides Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, your blog, blah, blah, blah… […]

Arielle Rose 4.0

The average 4-year-old asks 400 questions per day.  Arielle definitely exceeds 400 questions…times two!  From the moment she wakes up, it’s non-stop inquiries like: Where are we going today? Why is the sun up?  Where does the sun sleep? How did I talk when I was a baby? Where do you work? Why do you […]

Knock-knock Jokes

Everyone loves a good knock-knock joke, especially Arielle and Zavier. Arielle can execute a knock-knock joke, but her punchlines don’t have anything to do with whoever is a-knockin’ at the door.  After you ask “Who’s there?” she answers it with the word “Please…” then some sort of request or statement.  Very bizarre, but that’s what […]
