5 reasons to unplug from your electronic devices

5 reasons to unplug from your electronic devices

I’m going to sound like a little old lady today, but I remember a time when I couldn’t be reached 24/7, when I didn’t see constant updates about the health condition of my former Kindergarten classmate’s cat, and when I didn’t receive breaking news on the relationship status of a girl who I maybe sat near once in a study hall a decade ago. Yep. Somehow I muddled through and lived to talk about it. Believe it or not, the memories that I have of my childhood (where owning a monster-sized computer that only allowed...

Weekend recap (Lazy 5 Ranch)

Weekend recap (Lazy 5 Ranch)

It has been scorching hot in Charlotte lately.  If I don’t get the kids out for a stroll by 8 am, I can just forget the whole idea because walking any time after 10 in the morning is just too uncomfortable, sticky, humid, and gross.  In fact, I’ve taken up doing laps around the mall lately- a great air-conditioned alternative to walking outdoors! Anyway, MT and I wanted to do something fun with Michael over the weekend, but it was too steamy to go to the zoo (my first choice), and he hasn’t been digging the pool (just a...

Things I didn’t share Friday (4/25)

Things I didn’t share Friday (4/25)

  1.  I had all of the intentions in the world to do lots of posts this week, but as you may have noticed, that didn’t happen.  Addie has been super cuddly and likes to be held a lot- which is awesome- but it also makes it a bit difficult to get much done during the day.    When she is napping, I like to spend some one-on-one time with Michael, so again, I am not getting much blogging accomplished.  I’ll settle into a rhythm soon though, but until then, my posting schedule might be limited to just 2 days a week.  I...

Things I didn’t share Friday (3/7)

  1.  Has anyone seen the new reality show called Southern Charm?  I am usually not a reality television kind of girl, but I’m already hooked on this one.  Admittedly, a large part of the obsession is due to the fact that I am crazy about all of the clothes- especially the ones that Cameran Eubanks wears.  I want to raid her closet so badly! 2.  I just needed to share this picture of my nieces Ava and Brianna.  Seriously, how cute are these girls?  I constantly want to kiss their sweet, happy, little faces! 3.  Last...

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/28)

  1.  The reality that tomorrow is the 1st of March, and I’ll be delivering another baby in roughly 5 weeks is starting to hit me.  On one hand, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for two solid years, and on the other, I cannot believe how fast this second pregnancy is going!  I still have a lot of things to do to prepare, but I am trying not to freak out (at least not too much anyway). 2.  Even though I am practically BFFs with Jessica Robertson, MT and I agreed that it was finally time to drop Duck Dynasty from our DVR...

Things I didn’t share Friday (1/24)

  1.  I have been so incredibly tired lately.  Maybe it’s due to low iron, being pregnant, or chasing after a toddler all day long…or maybe it’s the combination of all three.  All I know for sure is that I can hardly keep my eyes open during the day, and if I ever become Ruler of the World, I am going to implement mandatory nap time for adults.   2.  I still haven’t received the results of my 3-hour glucose test even though I took the test almost 2 weeks ago now.  If I don’t hear anything by this...
