Reese Said What!? – 4 year old edition

by katherine on July 20, 2016

Yesterday Reese turned 4. Hard to believe, but I guess that’s how time and math work. We had a pretty low key day because I had a softball game that night so her family party is tomorrow night. The first thing she said when she woke up yesterday was, “IT’S MY BIRTHDAAAYYYY!” {Seriously, how a […]


Thirty is…

by katherine on January 5, 2015

…Flossing my teeth more. No, still not daily but anything has got to be better than the few days leading up to a cleaning, right? …Doing the dishes every night. I hate doing dishes. …Drinking coffee with less creamer. Turns out I really DO like the taste of coffee. …Fixing my hair instead of just […]

Six Whole Years

by katherine on June 2, 2014

I swear I didn’t forget about my kid’s birthday this year. Life has just been hectic and such. Her birthday came and went like a blur. We had our first ever not-at-home party and it was pretty great. We did a bowling party, complete with little plastic bowling trophies for each of the 9 kiddos. […]


Then vs. Now…The girls at 1

by katherine on July 24, 2013

Looking though all of the photos from Reese’s party made me reminisce Ry’s first birthday party. So, I thought it’d be fun to do a “side by side” of both the girls on their first birthdays. First Reese… Now Rylee… {for the record, she still gives us that side eye look.} Now both girls side […]


A Party for Reese

by katherine on July 23, 2013

My original plan was to pretty much do nothing for Reese’s birthday. She’s one, who cares was my thinking. Then Saturday morning while sipping my coffee and writing out my grocery list, I was thinking about snacks & beverages for the party. I thought a lemonade stand would be fun and then it all spiraled […]

My Sweet Reesie-Bug…today you are one year old. One. ONE. 1. If you can’t tell, I’m still in disbelief. This last year has flown faster than any year in my life. And even though I’d like to ignore the fact that your birthday means you are that much closer to no longer being a baby, […]


Ry’s Angry Birds Birthday Party

by katherine on May 22, 2013

I had some major grand plans in my head about how this whole Angry Birds birthday party would play out but when it came down to it? I was too tired to stay up late at night to get stuff done. I bought a lot more than I had originally planned instead of hand making […]


Rylee’s 5 Year Interview

by katherine on May 21, 2013

Well here it is! LIfe has been so crazy that I wasn’t able to get started on the project as early as I would have liked, but I like the way it turned out. She seriously cracks me up. My personal favorites are her answers to what she wants to be when she grows up […]

The perfect metaphor for my life

by katherine on May 9, 2013

Mother’s Day is right around the corner…such a great time to reflect on mothering and motherhood and junk… Well, Rylee finally figured out the theme she wanted for her birthday party this year. Angry Birds won out over Dora, but I don’t think by much. In order to keep the momentum going toward AB, I […]


Birthday Interview Prep

by katherine on May 1, 2013

It’s May 1st and you know what that means! Oh you don’t? Well, it means Little Miss Rylee will be turning 5 years old in 17 more days. FIVE years old. ONE WHOLE HAND! This is a big deal, folks. Back when Rylee was two, I started a “birthday interview” tradition that has been really […]
