  • Yesterday I had some of my girl friends and their babies and kids over for a play date and lunch. When making lunch for some who have food allergies and for kids it makes it a little tricker to decide what to serve. The forecast was calling for rain but I was praying against that so we could

  • Well here we are, Friday – finally! Yahoo we made it through another week! This weather that we are having right now calls for yummy warm feel good kind of food. (where did summer go? was it only a month long?) Not sure what kind of food you enjoy but in this house we aren’t

  • I don’t know what kind of shopper you are. Do you like to shop even? I enjoy shopping, maybe even a little too much. But I am one to always look for a good deal and I am a firm believer in spending money on good staples (pieces that are versatile and will last) that way you can create

  • Change in weather today which I’m ok with gives me an excuse to pull my cozy sweater out although I’m not in any way ready for fall yet but I do think fall is my favorite season to dress for... anyone else?
  • Some days my whole “to do” list (cause yes I function off lists) gets thrown out the window the toys make there way everywhere throughout the house (and I cringe) and I have a million things I should be doing but but in all honesty the thing I need to do is just sit and be present with my babies and since this one is growing by the years it seems daily I’ll soak up my snuggles and moments like this with her cause really the “to do” list will always be there! #graylynnhope #mamasgirl #motherhood
  • My kids love to be outside! Anyone else’s kids like that? After a crazy last 6 days with having 2 extra little people and than end of the school and Canada Day celebrations we all need a little “space” today if you know what I mean so despite the rain we will go for our daily walk/bike ride and enjoy the warmth outside and I’ll tell myself this can count as their baths for tonight 🤣 (I’m totally kidding they love the water so even if I tried they wouldn’t miss bath time)
  • She loves all things girly would wear a dress daily if she could, lover of all lipsticks especially pink and purple, loves Disney princesses especially Belle and Rapunzel  and she loves diggers!  Couldn’t seem more opposite but she loves having these diggers in our backyard to watch them work she is hoping if she keeps waving and batting her long eyelashes at the drivers she’ll get a ride on one! #lyricbethanyspinks
  • After 10 days of celebrating your birthday festivities are officially over although we celebrate you every day! To hear you say  after your party with your friends and family that it was the best day ever melted my heart! June 13, 2012 will forever be the day that my life changed and my dream came true. You my girl are my miracle and I knew the day you were born that you were special but I of course was bias but this year I have had that validated by others. Graylynn there is no one like you - you are amazing, you are smart, kind, loving, you are a good friend an amazing big sister you are talented and athletic and most of all you are loved so much not just by daddy and me but even more by Jesus and I pray you always know that. To see my itty bitty baby the day she was born swipe and to see just how great of a big sister she is listen to her serenade her sister the day she was born (this video gets me every time) #graylynnhope
  • If you look real close under my arm you’ll see my “ankle weight” - sweet boy loves to be with me all the time and though the love between the two of us is mutual sometimes I feel like I’m being touched by someone all day every day- any mamas out there feel me?
