Awards Day at The Little Gym

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since Kamden started going to The Little Gym! What happened to my chunky monkey? He's now a little boy. Before the awards presentation, Kamden and his Birds buddies got to show off the skills they've been learning to friends and family. Kamden loves using the P (parallel) Bars to [...]

Today, we're supposed to experience a 'heat wave' with temperatures in the mid-60s. So, to remember days (last week) gone past, I thought I'd share pics from Kamden's first steps in the snow. Unfortunately, going outside in the frozen tundra (dramatically speaking) meant dressing him like a homeless little red riding hood. Because we live in North [...]

Kamden Meets Santa Claus

Mini Man Child (aka Kamden) met Santa Claus this weekend at a special event held at The Little Gym in Burleson. The two hit it off and no tears or emotions were wrecked by either party. Honestly, as long as Husband and I were within eyesight, Kamden didn't care whether or not he and the [...]

Mama Monday // Grandparents, Football, Essential Oils, and Monkey Business

1. In case you missed my post for Grandparents' Day, you should definitely check it out. 2. Fellow blogger and knitting extraordinaire, Jennifer, sent Kamden two adorable hats she made from scratch. I'm trying to get photos she can use on her website, but Kamden is not cooperating. He's not a fan of photo sessions seconds before [...]

Five. Six. Four. Four. This number represents a major accomplishment (and blessing) in my breastfeeding and pumping journey. On May 19, I became an official donor at the Mother's Milk Bank of North Texas, and, as of July 1, I have donated 1,353 ounces of breast milk. Not too bad for someone who didn't know milk donation existed until a few months ago! I [...]

Nana C and Kamden at The Little Gym

We had the most pleasant surprise Monday: Nana C (my mom) arrived! That's right, she drove 14 hours to see her most favorite grandson (her only), most favorite son-in-law (her only), and most favorite daughter (her only). Actually, she could not have shown up at a more perfect time. I was at my OB's office [...]

She shoots like a girl.

I haven't been to the gun range since last May, a week before finding out I was nearly three months pregnant. Armed with a custom .223 Savage target rifle, I was excited to finally get back on the range and shoot some paper. While Husband was sighting in a gun with a new scope, I was [...]

ANGEL GOWNS // gifts for grieving parents

Yesterday, I had the most amazing experience: I donated my wedding dress to the NICU Helping Hands Foundation at Baylor All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth. Here I am pictured with Natalie, the project coordinator and mother to twins born premature. Natalie has personal experience in this NICU unit. Four years ago, she delivered micro-preemie twins, a [...]

Fall Mantel Decorated with Pumpkins and Family Heirlooms

Let me begin with the following disclaimer: I am NOT an interior decorator. I think our home is decorated in a traditional sense but on a simple scale. Husband hates to see useless "day-core" sitting on a shelf or table and I don't like trying to arrange them in a semi-intelligent manner. Thus, our home [...]
