The Monster’s Monster Party

by katherine on May 24, 2012

I have been scheming and planning this Monster Party for months now! {Thank you Pinterest for planning my 4 year old’s birthday party!} We’ve called Rylee “Monster” since before she could crawl. It’s a nickname that’s always fit and it’s always stuck. When we decided to throw her her very first “friends” party this year, […]


My Girl. She’s 4.

by katherine on May 22, 2012

In case you missed it {not sure how you could have}…Rylee turned four years old last Friday. I took the day off to hang out with her. Not something I’ve ever done, and not something I’ll get in the habit of, but we had a good time. First on her agenda was to watch “all […]


4 Years. Her Interview.

by katherine on May 21, 2012

Four years old…what a trip. And what a weekend! I am so exhausted today and my feet hurt so bad from “running” all weekend I’m breaking my own “never wear Birkenstocks when it’s raining” rule and wearing them. And my feet are thanking me for it. I took Friday off of work to spend with […]


Rylee’s Birth Story

by katherine on May 17, 2012

Today was the day 4 years ago I went into labor with our little Monster. So hard to believe four years has already passed. I still remember it like it was yesterday. I wanted to get it all typed out before we have another birth story to get it mixed with. You know how in […]


Hungry Goats & Party Hats

by katherine on June 6, 2011

Last week we went to a birthday part out at a local farm place. We had a great time. They have one of those “goat walk” deals where you can feed the goats. Of course we went ahead and spent a ridiculous amount of money ($1) for a tiny bit of feed. Ry had a […]

Be Still My Heart

by katherine on May 23, 2011

I forgot I had these photos in my camera from Rylee’s birthday.  I had to share really quick, because… My heart? It seriously overflows. Holy cow I love my husband more than words could ever describe.


Three Years. An Interview.

by katherine on May 18, 2011

I know I said it when I posted a photo of my sleeping baby toddler kid this morning but I will say it again. How is it possible that this little piece of perfection is 3 years old today. It boggles my mind. I’ll deal, I’m sure. Last year I did a 2-year interview. I […]


Uff Da! Rocks my socks! Again.

by katherine on May 17, 2011

It’s no secret how much I love Emily and her awesome creations over at Uff Da Designs. Rylee loves her Uff Da goodies too! If you don’t believe me, just go here, here and here. I think she should offer a headband punch card or something…buy 5 get 1 free or something. Because I’d be […]


Sweet and Simple 3rd Birthday!

by katherine on May 17, 2011

When I first started thinking about Rylee’s birthday party there was the great debate of is she old enough to throw her a “friends” party? I had this whole big Dora themed, DIY adventure party planned complete with star catching. Alas, we decided to wait at least another year before we do the two party […]

That is how my weekend can be summarized. This weekend was the fastest, longest weekend in the history of weekends. If that makes any sense at all. It all came to a head Thursday when I realized everything we were trying to take on. Grocery shopping. 3rd birthday party prep. Ry’s 3 year photos. Showing […]
