The Frying Pan

October 29, 2013

After 3 full days of caring for my children 24/7, my parents are ready for my return. I, on the other hand, am not. It’s not that I don’t miss them, I cannot wait to hold Noah and kiss them all up. I’m just not ready to be thrown into the frying pan of life. I took rather nicely to […]

Mom and Dad are heading out of dodge on an adult only excursion!!!!! When the concept was first suggested I immediately shot it down. How could […]

Hitting the Road

July 2, 2013

Tomorrow I am doing the unthinkable. I’m providing a whole plane full of people a reason to use birth control. I am taking three children on an airplane!!! I’m excited to get away from the craziness of our real life. It’s not that taking three kids who completely and totally thrive on routine and their comfort zone world isn’t crazy. […]

The Land (even further) Beyond Time

June 18, 2013

Recently I’ve been wanting to go to a concert and tailgate. You know, like the olden days. I don’t even know if people these days do this. I want to truck up to Alpine (concert venue) with a bag set in hand, a portable grill, collapsible chairs (only used these days for t-ball and soccer games in my life) and […]

This past weekend away was enjoyable in a way I never expected, never really even hoped for, and almost feel guilty about. I agree with all those sentiments that were passed along – it’s important to have adult time away from your children, yadda yadda. The carefree-ness I had over the weekend made me feel almost negligent. The relaxed feeling […]

September 28, 2012

This is the first in a LONG time, and I’m afraid last for quite some time, of adult only vacations that Adam and I will be taking. We are heading out to a friends’ wedding in Memphis, TN. We will be sans kiddos from late Thursday night (last night) until early Monday morning. What does one do without kids for […]

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 […]
