Thanks for the kind words, but I was hardly the best caregiver. Sean was pretty darn good though :)

Thankfully my hand finished healing just as my mom got home from the hospital. It peeled like a sunburn and that almost ended up being the worst part...so gross!

Earlier this week we brainstormed this year's 4th of July party menu so grocery shopping could be done. We always have hot dogs, baked beans and potato salad, but I also like to check my Pinterest boards for a couple... Continue reading

I have realized this week that everything is pretty ridiculously challenging without both your hands. I had this life lesson figured out by Friday morning and texted Mac to tell him, since he was out of town with his Dad...... Continue reading

I was hoping a patterned paper background would help make a stupid injury look a little cuter. Last night I cooked a steak...seared it and then put the saute pan in a 400 degree oven. I took it out, put... Continue reading

Yes and no. I try to keep a few birthday and thank you cards ready to grab, but I usually make one right when I need it. This was for my niece's 7th birthday party this past weekend.

You're totally right...we went to the beach yesterday too. Both places are so close by, yet we never make enough time to get to either one to enjoy. Definitely buying tickets for another game soon...
