When I … Continue reading

Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream

Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream

I was very lucky to be able to attend the Disney On Ice: Dare To Dream show when it hit Spokane last weekend with my friend, Hanan (from Lilac City Momma, who has her own review of the show) and her three girls. Do you remember being so excited about something you talk about nothing … Continue reading

The Perfect Football Birthday Party

The Perfect Football Birthday Party

For weeks I have been trying to plan the perfect 10th birthday party for my son (or Booby Boo, as you all know him now).  I’ve been stressed out, baking like a maniac, planning, writing lists, making invitations.  My son does not get a big birthday party every year so I wanted this one to … Continue reading

Happy 10th Birthday, Booby Boo!!

Happy 10th Birthday, Booby Boo!!

10 years ago, at this time, I was lying in a hospital bed preparing for a c-section.  I was relieved and scared.  So so scared. 10 years ago I became a Mommy to a beautiful baby boy.  I couldn’t even imagine how smart he would have turned out.  How sweet and sensitive.  How funny. Happy … Continue reading

Shriner’s Hospitals For Children

Shriner’s Hospitals For Children

I’ve been very busy this past week or two. Besides my two kids starting school, trying to get back into a school schedule plus football practice and now cross country…I’ve also been spending most of my free time at Shriner’s Hospital.  Shelloy’s son had surgery and has been in the hospital for the week and … Continue reading

The Day We Went to Coeur d’Alene, ID

The Day We Went to Coeur d’Alene, ID

My BFF, Shelloy, and I took our kids to Coeur d’Alene, ID this weekend.  It was gorgeous weather and a perfect way to end the summer. The Coeur d’Alene area is surrounded by dozens of lakes left behind by the glaciers of the ice age. There are more than 55 lakes within easy driving distance … Continue reading

The Amazing Mrs. A

The Amazing Mrs. A

My baby girl’s last day of preschool was today. The very last day of preschool. I cried.  For those who know me personally know that this isn’t a big surprise.  It was actually more about the teacher than anything.  Mrs. A has been a part of our lives for so many years.  She was Booby … Continue reading

Personal Rambles

Personal Rambles

Lately I have been writing a lot of impersonal things, with the exception of my Monday posts.  So why not some personal ramblings? The kids went camping with their Auntie, Uncle and cousins this weekend.  I am not entirely sure where they went (Banks Lake?) but I know that Moo Moo was so excited she … Continue reading

2 Kids and Summer Vacation

2 Kids and Summer Vacation

Summer vacation is almost upon us and I’ve been thinking about plans to keep my two busy kids entertained.  I have a 9 year old and a 5 year old and they need to be entertained, 24/7.   Most days, they can be happy around the house – playing outside, playing board games, whatever.  But there … Continue reading

The Eruption That Shook WA State

The Eruption That Shook WA State

Last summer, I was determined to take the kids on a road trip to a place that would not only be education but unforgettable.  That place ended up being to Mt. St. Helens.  In all of the years I’ve lived in WA (and when I visited in the summers) I had never been either.  So … Continue reading

A Family BBQ

A Family BBQ

Love makes a family.  ~GIGI KAESER So my last post was a bit of a downer.  How about a nice, positive family post?? My Dad retired at the beginning of May and we had a BBQ for him.  I adore my niece and nephew and my kids absolutely love them so it is always a … Continue reading
