A Jam Packed Holiday Weekend

fourth-of-july-family-12

Post contains affiliate links. This past Fourth of July weekend was so exhausting, we literally needed a day to recover. Yes, an entire day devoted to hanging out on the couch in our pajamas/clothes we had on the day before. Yup, that lazy. We kicked off our Fourth of July weekend at my sister's party on Friday. It was a pot lock with s'mores and sparklers. All the Fourth of July necessities. The guys spent a huge portion of the day playing a game called Kubb. We had never heard of it before, but they sure had fun. We also turned Hudson's car seat around on the way ...

Easter 2015

easter-2015-18

Lately, keeping up with life seems pretty tricky. I haven't had a handle on laundry for months. My house seems to live in a constant state of disaster. Even if it is cleaned, that barely makes it 24 hours. I have felt more exhausted with this pregnancy than any of the others. I've barely touched my blog. I've barely touched my blog, because there is no gorgeous holiday displays or crafty projects. There is just life-- and it is crazy and messy. It occurred to me that waiting for order and inspiration and perfection means I will never blog again. So I'm back-blogging. One of my favorite ...
