Catching up

I am catching up, 5 on Friday style. I am trying to be better about writing posts so I can look back and remember these moments. The whole reason I ever started a blog was to keep a pregnancy journal, which turned in to a new baby journal, which turned in to a "life as a new mommy trying to balance it all" journal. It is such a fun time in our lives and I want to remember it all!


Last week we hosted a gender reveal party for our good friends Scott and Betsy. Betsy is always hosting and serving others and I wanted to do something special for her once I found out she was pregnant with baby #2. We had a "Princess Crowns or Touch Downs?" party and it was so fun! We ate yummy dessert, caught up with good friends, and smashed a pinata that was filled with fun items representing the gender of their baby. Which was PINK!!! SO exciting, especially since they already have a boy :)

We also threw an engagement party for my brother and his fiance Carol that week too. It is such an exciting time, as I have always thought of my brother as the perpetual bachelor. He has found his PERFECT match and I am so freaking excited for their wedding... I feel like I'M getting married again!

Well if you read my last post you know that my half marathon was challenging to say the least. So what does one do? She signs up for another one! Yikes! My good friend Janet has convinced me to train and run it with her. I think that it will be fun, and since it is in November I am confident that it WON'T be a million degrees and super humid. So it will already be better!

Training for another half has commenced!

The semester is in full swing and I feel like I have a really good grip on time management, for once in my life. I am only working one day a week, and have school/clinical three days a week. Some days I get home before Kyle and Macy so I try to do my best to get all of my school work done so I can just enjoy my evenings with them. It also frees me up to just enjoy my Fridays off with my Macy girl. I am very grateful that I can focus on school and not work full time anymore. Such a blessing!

Doing a little catching up on school while Macy was in the tub. It is all a balancing act!



Speaking of having Fridays off, last Friday we went to the Children's Museum and checked out the new Playscape. If you live in the Indianapolis area you have to check it out! There are endless hours of things to do and Macy had a BLAST! I loved watching her explore all of the exhibits and how excited and enthused she was to try everything out. We will definitely be going back!

The water table was by far her favorite. And the smock... I die!


I know am on this island by myself, but I am not the biggest lover of fall like every other person on the planet. I am summer girl! Not only is it July 4th and my birthday, but summer brings a since of freedom and the best memories. It's not that I don't enjoy the cooler weather or excuse to wear cute boots, I just don't look forward to the fall as much as others. It's more like... Oh I guess its fall again, before you know it there will be snow. However, since I can't deny the falling temperatures I thought having a fall themed Pinterest crafting party might help me get in the spirit. I do love a good excuse to get some girlfriends together! These are two things I am eyeing to try out:
A fall inspired burlap wreath, and some festive painted pumpkins
