Birthday week + weekend is officially OVER! Whew! Birthdays are a blast, but sometimes I wonder how people who have say, 6 children have the energy to CELEBRATE so many times per year. I only have 2 kids and sometimes find it a little exhausting to plan and implement the relatively small b-day celebrations we… Continue reading Birthday fun
Jumping on here for 2 seconds to acknowledge the fact that TWELVE years ago I was holding an approximately ~15 hour old Asher in my arms. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (He was born at 12:42 a.m. and likes to point out that he was almost born on December 1st.) I can't believe he is 12. I know, every… Continue reading 12!
I'm going to steal my friend 5 am Joel's custom of referring to birthdays as "levels". As in, "I have now reached Level 38 in the game of life." 🙂 Go me! Haha. I've seen him use this in his emails and it always makes me chuckle. Life DOES feel like some kind of weird… Continue reading Level 38
I'm kind of excited that my birthday falls on a weekend this year!! I'm feeling the whole "birthday weekend" idea. Normally I don't really care a whole lot about my birthday...I am not someone who takes the whole week off work, books a bunch of special things to do, etc. But I do love the… Continue reading 7 am vs 7 pm, birthday weekend, return to gym?

I mentioned the final two meets were cancelled, which was a HUGE bummer!! But such is life. They had their end of the season fun practice last night and… Continue reading Friday 5: XC, my b-day and good quotes
I have a teenager. A 13 year-old. What in the WHAT just happened?!?!?!??! Ethan at 10 days old I am seriously having the hardest time wrapping my head around this. Not that this is "brand new information"...I mean, they turn 1, then 2, then 3....and so on and so forth. I have personally experienced 37… Continue reading TEEN
I've mentioned before that my husband is notoriously difficult to buy gifts for. He doesn't really have any big hobbies that require "gear" or "equipment" (no golf balls or tees to buy....doesn't really like to read....is pretty minimalistic about many things like coffee mugs, etc.....). He is also rather picky about his clothing and likes… Continue reading Birthday surprise
Yawn. I feel a little bit out of sorts this morning. Not in a bad mood exactly, but I think mostly just a little bit tired. I feel like it was kind of an intense week for some reason, though it really wasn't by normal standards. Now that I think about it, maybe it's because… Continue reading Tired + B-day Recap
Happy, Happy 11th Birthday to my sweet Asher!!! Tucked in bed last night....his last time going to sleep as a 10 year old. I know it's so cliche to even say, but I can't believe he's 11. My youngest, my baby....and he is ELEVEN. I feel like the years from starting elementary school to now… Continue reading 11
