Finding Joy

Motherhood is the hardest job I've ever had, more than working midnight shows at the movie theater, getting home between 2am and 5am - then having to be in my graphic design class by 7am. It can be absolutely exhausting, frustrating, irritating, boring, monotonous and everything I do my three-year old mimics! I said stupid one time in…

National Frozen Yogurt Day

Sunday morning brought a mix of sadness at the leaving of Auntie Na and Uncle Zac but excitement for the awesome adventure they will be going on! Goodbye kisses for Auntie Na... And Uncle Zac... Since we started the day early, we went on a drive to check out potential camping spots. On our return…

Drawing (Pencil) Day

Having my sister home from Italy for a whole month was so fun but made it harder to say goodbye. We are six years apart, so it's been a long time in coming for us to actually get close. And it finally happened - we are good friends! I look forward to her return! On her last day Stateside…

National Doughnut Day

After a month of being behind I am finally caught up on posting all these holiday celebrations! Woo hoo! Today was National Doughnut Day so there were lots of free donut options in the area - only Jeffrey didn't want one! Definitely proves we have eaten way too much junk lately when my 3-year-old doesn't want…

National Applesauce Cake Day

After a late night shopping trip that led us to Krispy Kremes... after 9pm all donuts are 50% off! I came home to Caleb bearing donuts... which we enjoyed the following morning. Sweets for my sweetie baby... I enjoyed my favorite cream filled donut with a little bit of Bible reading and coffee in my…

National Egg Day

Who would have thought raspberries could be so fun? Yummy! And Yucky!!? Tsk tsk Jack... This is Jack's new favorite place to play. It's like having a playpen only he wants to back there... a 2'x2' square with a few toys... it's Jeffrey's favorite spot too... works for me! Seeing as it was National Egg Day and my…

National Rocky Road Day

June 2nd began with a slow morning of little boys playing in boxes... Jeffrey was pushing Jack up and down the hallway... Then Jeffrey decided to put all of Jack's favorite toys in the box but didn't want Jack in there... oh big brothers... "I really don't want him in there mommy..." "Ok he can play..."…

Wear A Dress Day

I can happily say I have posted enough to use up all the data that came with my blog... I consider this an accomplishment in my world! It took me awhile to figure out how to get more data but I am finally back to being able to post again. I also switched to a new domain... LiveSimpleGood.com! Exciting! June…

National Macaroon Day

Since we stayed the night at MeMa's house the boys enjoyed breakfast at their little table... They have the same eating face... haha! We had an easy morning and then I returned home in the early afternoon with 2 crabby kiddos to welcome Daddy home! While Jack napped Jeffrey picked strawberries from our garden! Nice and…

6th Anniversary – Water a Flower Day

On May 30th Caleb and I celebrated our 6th wedding Anniversary! I can't believe how time has flown by! During college my new friend Taylor talked me into taking ballroom dance lessons for a college credit at a local dance studio. Caleb went to a different school but was taking lessons at the studio for the fun of it. He was asked to…
