Newborn: Effie

My friend Stacey is a rockstar.  She carefully planned and prepared for how she wanted to give birth and her baby basically said, “Psh mom, whatever!  We’re doing this my way.”  Which ended up being intervention after invention culminating in a c-section on 3/13/13 (I think that baby was just holding out for a super […]

He’s Gonna Be In Pictures!

I’m excited to announce that one of my photos of Oz is going to be featured in the Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food 2013 calendar!  He’ll be receiving a prize package of treats and dog food that will hopefully make the humiliation of subjecting himself to taking this photo worth it.  Say hello to Mr. […]

Cruising with Baby

I did a ton of research and googling prior to our November Caribbean cruise.  We are seasoned cruisers, but this time was different, this time we had a nine month old with us.  I scoured cruise critic and looked for blogs but I didn’t find much advice for a baby under one and so hopefully […]

Arkansas Adventure: Buddy Bear

I was really looking forward to visiting my brother and sister-in-law to see their dog Buddy.  I hadn’t seen him since the very first day he came home when he was shy and quiet.  Over the past couple years I’ve been entertained with stories of Buddy’s antics (chewing up porches, barking at pumpkins).  He is the goofiest […]

Arkansas Adventure: Flying

I was incredibly nervous in the weeks leading up to my trip to Arkansas with Evie.  I was excited for the trip itself, but up-at-night-worried about the flights and travel.  Like so many things in life, I was more worried than I needed to be and everything was fine.  It was hard no question, but […]
