We are going to try to blog our way to MN!! So, all of you can feel like you're part of the ride...without entertaining Moses! Check back with us on July 2 as we leave at 4:30am on our way to the Good North!!


Here's my cute little Elie in her gdiaper! I've been using them for about a month now and really love them! Check them out at

don't judge me!

That tuna casserole I made almost two months ago, I wrote about it here is definitely still in my refrigerator. ? gross.

A New Layout!

I finally figured out how to make my blog look AWESOME!!! I hope you like it, fans!
and here are some pictures to compliment it:


If you haven't heard of gDiapers you HAVE to check them out here
I ordered a starter kit about three weeks ago and have been using them ever since. The diapers are cloth with a water-proof snap-in liner and flushable/compostable/non-landfilling inserts!! When I ordered my kit I knew that I couldn't afford the disposable liners all the time, so I also got some microfiber cloth inserts from happy heiny and they work flawlessly!

I'll post some pictures of my cute little "g baby" soon!!

I just can't get it done!

I'm trying so hard to pack our house up. I just keep getting distracted by my life! Moses is a little needy right now, I think he's getting teeth. If they would just come on in and get it over with it would be a lot easier. But its taking forever! Elie is still the most amazing and happy baby I have ever met. She sleeps, eats, swings gets loved on by Moses and that's her day.
Anyway, distracted again, our apartment is full of boxes and junk is everywhere. I hate it! I keep praying for Jesus to lead me on what to keep and what to get rid of. He is showing me, its just taking a while.
So, back to packing for me!


When I was in college I had a job where I rode into the city everyday with three or four friends. Some days we had story time and made up the word "remeniscions" we would talk about favorite memories of our times together. Sometimes it was ridiculous, but it was always fun!! Here are some for you

These are our engagement photos taken by my friend Jessica. Oh the days of being young and free (and thin)!!
