Simple Splurges

Life is compiled of ups, downs, in-betweens, laugh lines, sore muscles, full tummies, sandy floormats, tired eyes, joyful moments, and simple splurges. And this weekend has been dotted with simple splurges! Double ice cream scoop with four spoons ~ one spoon for Ty, one for Tanner, one for Bry, and, now that I think of it, I’m pretty sure Ty had one spoon in …

Salty Tears

We brought thirty-three Middle School Students from our church, along with some pretty awesome leaders, our boys, and headed up the San Bernardino Mountains to Winter Camp for the weekend. Tanner in the back, asking every 5 seconds, “Are these the mountains? Are we in the mountains yet?” I love Middle School students, the majority itching to spend their parents …

Thanks for all the amazing feedback and excitement regarding my last post about Cindy Lane… it means the world! So many blessings have come about with our new move, that I owe it to God’s BEST, to write Part 2. Remember when I mentioned I’m a ‘Get ‘er done’ kinda gal? Yes, my planning overdrive kicked in after we received …

Dr. Suess covers, and Island of the Blue Dolphin posters smiled at me as I took it all in. I went there probably once a week. To this room full of …

Trip to the Dentist

Ahh the dentist. I know, most people hate going. Just the word alone. DENTIST… Shudder. I don’t mind the dentist. Probably because I loved the dentist I grew up going to! Dr. Wise. He was the sweetest man in the world. He had a calm voice that instantly transported me to a tropical island. And the dental hygienists that worked …

Unexpected Encouragement

My mom, being the gift-giver that she is, brought over an adorable green onesie for Ty declaring, WHAT HAPPENS AT GRANDMA’S, STAYS AT GRANDMA’S, along with a treat for Tanner, a delectable snack in the form of chocolate for me, and I’m sure something else that I can’t recall at the moment… simply because her love language is gift-giving and …

Changes

Recently I found myself saying these three phrases way too often: “I’m tired.” “I’m done.” “I’m frustrated.” I was tired because I’m way too much of a night-owl, and Bryan and I often have our best talks {couch dates} til late, or, we are catch up on our favorite shows… does anyone else cry at every episode of Parenthood? 🙂 …
