The Bump Club

August 27, 2012

Over the weekend, while at a restaurant, someone looked at me standing and graciously offered up their seat. It’s official, I am part of the Bump Club! When I say bump, I really mean large mass of a stomach that resembles something far more than 22 weeks in my clinical opinion. I remember going through this feeling with each child. […]

The 20th week appointment is a big deal in the world of pregnancy. It’s when you have the opportunity to find out what sex baby you are having. And in some ways the gender of the baby totally shapes the dynamic of your family. When I was pregnant with Drew, I counted down the seconds until our ultrasound. Seeing the […]

10th BFBBQ

August 23, 2012

Ten years of throwing the best barbecue of the summer. The evolution of the BFBBQ has been amazing. The first year it was the party of the century. We went through eight kegs and picked up more beer. Everyone’s friends of friends of friends were in attendance. And as the years have gone by we have had some bad weather […]

My Hijacked August 21 Post

August 22, 2012

Dear Adam, It’s almost humorous to think of where we were seven years ago…and it’s not because I, along with two others, fainted during our ceremony. I think about those two kids who thought they knew what love, life and marriage might be about and I want to laugh at how little we knew (or even probably know now). I […]

Happy anniversary to my wife

August 21, 2012

Let me just start this blog by saying that, no Heli does not have a wife, this is in fact her hubby Adam. Let me also say that she doesn’t realize that I’m about to post something on her blog. However, today is our 7 year anniversary and what better way to celebrate a very personal, private holiday than sharing […]

Redefine Relaxing Vacation

August 20, 2012

This morning the alarm went off for the first time in nine days. It was a wake up call…vacation is over. Time to come back to reality. And even though we have been back for a couple of days, it has been slow in getting back into our normal life. After last year’s trip, one might think we didn’t stand […]

I’m in the thick of it…

August 9, 2012

I know vacations are worthwhile. It’s great to get away from the house, it’s nice to have a break from the routine and it’s enjoyable to be forced to have no distractions during family time. The pre-work, though, is enough to do you in! There are a variety of piles all over our house. There are the clothing piles that […]

Is a relaxing beach vaca possible?

August 8, 2012

Much like I explained yesterday, a year can make a big difference! Friday we leave for our second year going up to Michigan between school and camp. My very generous aunt and uncle give us their summer house as a getaway. And last year, (you can read about it here) it wasn’t quite the getaway I had expected. First of […]

What a difference a year makes! (The summer edition)

August 7, 2012

I can’t help but reflect back to where I was a year ago. After the long, hard decision to quit my job and stay home, I had made it through July (my first month as a stay at home mom). And although I was getting into a groove, most of my contacts were not going to be around in the […]
