I had a scare today. Like, seriously something that fortunately wasn’t a HUGE deal, but a freaky wake up call nonetheless; and something that is making me WAY more aware of my world on the Internet and why I’m cracking down on my kids privacy on the blog too. When I got a notification that some guy liked a picture on my blog’s Facebook page, my first...

Ever since I mentioned the circus to our little man, he has been talking NONSTOP about when he gets to go! Now that LC is 3 1/2, he’s so into going to fun shows and our whole family is pretty psyched to check out Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey ® as they present DRAGONS. From January 30 – February 3rd at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, you can...

On July 1, 2011 at 8:55am I set eyes on my beautiful daughter for the first time. Today, she is a whole year old and I absolutely cannot believe it! We have watched her grow in the last year and there has been no greater joy (aside from watching our little man grow up) in my life. She is my sweet little angel and I am so blessed and thankful God gave me you Lavery Elizabeth. Smash...

Lavery Elizabeth entered the world at 38 weeks 1 day on July 1, 2011 at 8:55am. Kyle and I woke up bright and early, anxious to meet our baby girl and missing our baby boy at the same time. We arrived at CMC Pineville early in the morning eager to let Lavery’s birth day begin! I was up all night the night before sick to my stomach and just anxious overall. I knew...

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his. ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895 People always ask me what my favorite part of being a mom is. I struggle to give them the answer, because there’s a list of reason’s why I love being a mom. Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a mom....

So I FINALLY have a free moment to share some memories from Landyn’s 1st Birthday Bash! Friends and family joked it should be on “Platinum First Birthdays!” Although I’m no Tori Spelling (she does Hansen’s cakes, we do Nona’s Sweets! ;)), I tried to create some lifelong memories using some “going all out tips” from A List...

March 10, 2009 at 10pm marked the beginning of everything….. This time last year, I was counting down the days until my scheduled c section. Nothing could make me take my mind off meeting my little man. Everyday I woke up wondering what he would look like, who he would resemble. Would he have my eyes? What about Kyle’s nose? I hoped he wouldn’t have Kyle’s...

A mommy posted on Charlotte Mommies today about how her child’s school asked all of the parents to write their children a love note to be read out loud to the kids at school in honor of Valentine’s Day. I automatically thought of all of the amazing handwritten letters I have from my mom and how much I miss her and cherish those words in my heart. I realized...
