    Scenes From Our Snow Days

    January 28, 2015


    Hello, hello! School was canceled once again for Mal today, so our little family enjoyed another snow day together. Some things we’ve done in the past 48 hours: Lounged around the house (in pajamas, of course), played in the snow, cooked some delicious food and ate lots of snacks, cuddled, napped, and enjoyed being snowed in. Here are some scenes […]



    Good morning and happy Friday, friends! A little recap from yesterday… While I fed Quinn, Mal cooked us breakfast (scrambled eggs with ham and cheese).

Tickets for the BLEND Retreat are now […]

The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot […]

    January 14, 2015


    Hi, friends! You know that game “Two Truths and a Lie?” Well, if not, it’s an icebreaker game. You think of three statements about yourself: two are true statements and one is false. Then, the other people guess which one is a lie. Simple as that! I thought this game would make a fun post, so […]
