HELLO YouTube!!!


I wanted to let you all know that I started my journey on YouTube.  I am really going to make a concienscience effort to update my blog and my youtube accounts to let you all know what is going on in my life.  Please check out my YouTube account for new videos!  I am doing all kinds of fun things like grocery hauls, recipes and home projects!  I think I will try to do some kid activities once Fisher has gotten old enough to do some of those things with.

So this was just a quick post to let you all know about my new journey and to have you all check out my new page.  Come see it for yourself!  Click here to open a new window for my channel or click on the image above.  Talk to you all soon!

Yummy in my Tummy

Yummy in my Tummy

My baby is getting so big already. He turned 5 months old last Thursday! It sounds cliche, but time really does fly. Especially when you work part-time, try to keep up with housework, make time for your hubby, the dogs and a little time for yourself. Who am I kidding??? There is no time for yourself! I try to remember, or as my husband would say…”you’re a person too!”. It is so hard, but every time we are all spending time together I remember how its all worth it. Love my life!

This was Fisher’s first time eating rice cereal. He doesn’t seem too terribly interested in food yet, but it was fun. Plus, I think it helps him grow and keep his tummy nice and full.

…and I will make you Fisher’s of men


I can only think of the most cliche sayings when it comes to my son…he’s the apple of my eye…he is my everything. Everything – that just about sums it up.  About 4 months ago I got the most important responsibility of my life.

He’s just about the most perfect baby ever. Most of the typical questions you get I could answer with what most people only dream of saying. How is he sleeping at night? oh about 10 or 11 hours. how is breastfeeding going?  he is a natural!  Although we don’t have the perfect schedule down yet (we’ll discuss that in another post), things are just right for us.

I have pretty much always known that I wanted to be a mother. It took us a little longer than we would have liked, but he has a plan for all of us, right???  Maybe that’s a thought for another post. Lots of good ideas here!

We couldn’t have found out we were expecting at the most perfect time. It was a year ago today and we were spending the holiday weekend with my parents in St. Louis. We took a test and had a grin on our faces ear-to-ear. Of course we had to tell my parents!!!  They were thrilled…and I think a bit shocked to find out.

I absolutely loved being pregnant. If I could always be pregnant and just keep popping kids out (and we could afford it) then I would!  Well as you know, about 9 months later, I had a beautiful baby boy. Twenty hours of labor and the boy’s head was just too big to fit, but we gave it a good try. C-section here we come! It all happened so fast. When the doctor pulled him out it was like he had always been a part of our lives and I finally found out what I wanted to be when I grew up…A MOM!!!

I love you Fisher Elliot – born at 2:46 pm on May 10, 2013; weighing in at 8 lbs. 12.6 oz and 22 inches long. My life. We hope to be adding to the brood soon! 😉

With love,


Hello blogging world!

I’ve always wanted to be the type to record everything. The idea of keeping a sort of digital file has always appealed to me, but like lots of other people life just kind of gets away from you! That being said, it’s time for me to take a stand and start tracking my life for the sake of my family. If I don’t then how will we ever remember every little important, interesting and irreplaceable moment we experience together???

So here I go. Go me! I think I can, I think I can.

With love,
