Daddy and Girls

There's not much I love more than seeing my sweetheart loving on my little sweethearts.


Makes me want to jump right in on this love-fest.

Sleeping Diva

Sometimes your baby just makes you laugh.

Woe is me!

Love that little babe.

Grilled Cheese Party

What do you do with all the leftovers from a cheese party?

Have a Grilled Cheese Party!

We invited our friends over for a dinner of grilled cheese and tomato soup followed by an evening of games. It was the perfect use of so much leftover cheese. I love cheese, and love it even more when it is melted.


So many delicious choices.

I enjoyed a grilled sandwich of pepper jack, swiss, mild cheddar, and ham. It was so good dipped in a warm bowl of tomato soup. Yum!

Zach's was easy to make: just ham.

What is your favorite grilled cheese combinations? Any recommendations?

Twin Tummy Time

Lucy wants to be part of the tummy time party.

Tummy time is better with two!

Everything is better with your sister.

Ladies Night: Cheese & Chocolate Party

I did it! I followed through on one of my inspirations and hosted a Cheese & Chocolate party. And let me tell you, I had a blast!

It was so much fun to get to know some new ladies and to enjoy some delicious cheese, chocolate, fruits, nuts, and other treats.

I love any excuse for a party and to eat good food. We enjoyed some old favorites and tried some exciting new treats too.


This is my new favorite treat.

Cream cheese & caramel toffee fruit dip. Excellent with graham crackers. 

Double Yum!

These also made an excellent breakfast the next morning. 

Baked brie. 

This picture is making me dream of another cheese party.

This cheese ball was SO yummy!

So, so lovely.

Looking so lovely together.


Rocking the pinks.

Thank you so much for coming ladies! I can't wait to host another get-together.

Any good ideas/suggestions for my next Ladies Night? What have your favorite nights out (or in) consisted of?

Let me know if you want an invite to my next ladies night!

Baby Shower In A Box

I was so happy and excited to receive a Baby Shower In A Box from my mom. She hosted a combined baby shower in Alaska for all the cousins that had babies in the past few months, and then sent me the gifts that were brought for Clara.

Lucy very excited about the gift that was included for her. 

Thank you, Aunt Lori!

Thank you everyone! I love it all!

Clara modeling her new hat from Melanie, and trying out her new toy from Grandma Gillson. Thank you!

Thank you so much for thinking of us, and for all the lovely gifts! I wish we could have been there to celebrate with everyone!

I miss and love my amazing family!

Pool Party

Lucy, Clara, and I met up with our friends at the base pool. We were only there for about 30 minutes when they closed it down because the water Ph and chlorine levels were wrong. Luckily, we got our money back and the kiddlets still enjoyed the time they did get to swim around.

Looking glamorous at the pool.

Relaxin' in the shade.

My good little sleeper.

Me and my girls.

Now that I have gone to the pool with two little kids by myself (no Zach), I am more confident and am looking forward to going again.

I only hope that Clara sleeps for most of the time again!
