Boys’ Shared Bedroom Reveal

This post is a long time coming… You may remember my inspiration post from when I was pregnant, but it wasn’t until we had a photographer coming to take Henry’s newborn photos at our house that we actually finished this project (I was literally spray painting the dresser at 8:00 pm the night before pictures)….

Strong in 2020

Instead of creating the same old list of resolutions (lose weight, get organized, save money, etc.), this year I decided to choose a word to guide my year and apply that word to multiple areas of my life. That way, instead of a list of things to do or not do in the new year,…

Reflecting on 2019

I feel like every year since I met Jeff, I’ve been saying “this was the best year ever.” We’ve packed a ton into the few years we’ve known each other – marriage, buying our first house, having two beautiful baby boys – and it seems like things just keep getting better and better as we…

Last year, Jack was about a year and a half old at Christmas and the one thing he wanted most was to play with my Nativity set. I didn’t want any pieces of my set to get broken (it’s a Precious Moments set that my mom got for me on eBay because it’s just like…

Meet Henry

I am so excited to finally introduce the newest member of our family! We welcomed Henry to our family on Sunday, November 24 at 2:16 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds and was 19.5 inches long. His birth was totally different than what we experienced with Jack. Henry was due on November 16, so he was…

Letters to Jack – Becoming a Big Brother

Dear Jack, Henry will be joining our family soon, and I have been so anxious for this whole pregnancy about how having another baby is going to impact you. Lots of things are about to change for our family, and at your age, it can be hard to understand that. I’m so glad that I’ve…

Sweet Potato Chili

This slightly sweet and savory chili is the perfect meal to enjoy during this cooler weather that has finally made its way to Alabama. The sweet potatoes give this chili a unique, slightly sweet flavor while the sausage and spices give it a nice kick. It balances out perfectly. It’s also quick and easy to…

Preparing for Baby – Freezer Cooking Marathon

Last weekend, my mom came over and we had a freezer cooking marathon to stock our freezer with meals for when Baby Henry gets here. In about 4 hours, we ended up with 14 casseroles stacked in our freezer that are ready to just be popped in the oven for an easy dinner during those…

Preparing for Baby – Daddy’s Hospital Survival Kit

When Jack was born, I shared a post about how I made a Daddy’s Hospital Survival Kit for Jeff. I originally found the idea on Pinterest and loved that it was a way to celebrate Jeff becoming a dad. So many things only focus on baby and mama during that time, but becoming a father…

November Memory Verses Printable

As we enter this season of Thanksgiving, I’m trying to make sure that we slow down and focus on the meaning of this season. Jack is still young to understand the concept of thankfulness, but we are working on learning about being thankful and also on learning that all of our blessings are gifts from…
