Red Bed

I finally finished painting Davis’ bed. There are many reasons I’m happy it’s done! 5. He was getting way active for the toddler bed! (He moves around ALOT when he sleeps. I think that’s one reason he  was waking every night. No room to move around! As soon as we put the mattress/box springs in … Continue reading

Buttons & Bowties

Meet my new endeavor…Buttons & Bowties! I had been looking for a cute bow tie for Gavin to wear in his 1 year photos next week (yes, I said 1 year. So hard to believe, right?!?!?) and couldn’t find one for the amount I wanted to pay. I can make just about anything if I … Continue reading

Fun Foto Friday & Playing Catch Up

Makes my heart swell with rainbows and hearts and happiness. 🙂 So hard to believe that today is the last official weekday of summer! We spent it at a play date this morning; and the weather made me … Continue reading

There are only a small handful of people that read my blog, but who … Continue reading


These snow days have been overall pretty non-productive. I can only do so much with National Boards when I can’t be in my classroom. So, I took a few of Davis’ nap  times to work on some handmade things. These little hand-stitched cards I am soooo excited about. My art-teacher/crafter friend Jen put together a … Continue reading

Thank God for Playdates

We were starting to go stir-crazy in the house; when my friend Carri called this morning and said she and her son Kyler were coming over to play! Thank goodness! Davis needed a change of scenery, so they came over for a couple of hours. We had a nice time talking, and the boys always … Continue reading
