Big News on Blueberry Hill

We’ve been keeping a secret for the last few months… We are so excited to announce that we are expecting baby #2 in November! We can’t wait to welcome another sweet baby boy into our family soon!

Jack’s Mickey Mouse Birthday Bash

Last week, I shared Jack’s dinosaur birthday party and realized that I never shared what we did for his first birthday party last year. When he turned one, he loved Mickey Mouse (he still does), so we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed party. I ordered a few decorations from Amazon, but Jack’s cousin had…

Jack’s Big Boy Room Inspiration (and our parenting fail)

My little guy is officially two years old! The time has flown by since he was born and it has been so fun to watch him grow and develop his own little personality. I have loved every stage, from infant (which actually surprised me, because I’ve never been much of a baby person) to now,…

Dinosaur Birthday Bash – Jack’s 2nd Birthday

This weekend, we had a joint birthday party for Jack (turning 2) and his first cousin, Zachary (turning 4). We decided on a dinosaur theme, and for the most part we kept the planning pretty simple. I found these adorable invitations on Etsy and had them printed at Office Depot. I decided to use the…

Summer Adventures: A Day in Pawhuska, Oklahoma

Last week, we went on a family vacation with my parents to Lake Fort Smith in Northwest Arkansas. Since we were so close to Oklahoma, we decided to take a day and travel to Pawhuska, the home of the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. My mom and I have been fans of hers since before she…

Grandma Sarah’s Blueberry Muffins

One thing Jeff’s Grandma Sarah was known for was her blueberry muffins.

Happy July!

I don’t know what happened, but I feel like I blinked and June just disappeared. What is it about time off work that makes time seem to fly by? July is my last month off before returning to work in August, and it’s going to be a super busy month! We are packing in lots…

Jack’s First Zoo Trip

Last weekend, we drove up to Birmingham for Jack’s first zoo trip. We’ve taken Jack to the aquarium in Chattanooga and the aquarium on Dauphin Island, and he absolutely loved looking at the fish, so we thought he’d enjoy seeing other animals, too. Of course, Jack ran straight to the fish as soon as we…

Grandma Sarah’s Blueberry Pound Cake

Grandma Sarah was Jeff’s grandmother. We moved into her house after she passed away, and as we were cleaning it out, I found a big book of her recipes. Since our blueberry bushes are full of berries right now, I went through her book a few days ago looking for blueberry recipes. She had a…
