  1. My Breastfeeding Rollercoaster - The Best Ride of My Life

    My Breastfeeding Rollercoaster – The Best Ride of My Life


    For me, there was no option besides breastfeeding.

    When I first got pregnant with Roree, I never even considered using formula. I had nothing against it, but it just didn’t make any sense to me whatsoever.

    Why would I pay so much money for something I could produce for free?

    Both my sister and my mom have always been breastfeeding advocates. My sister nursed both of her children full termand my…

  2. Prepping for Baby #2’s Arrival - A Comparison

    Prepping for Baby #2’s Arrival – A Comparison


    It’s amazing how different preparing for your second child can be.

    For me, it is an entirely different experience.

    When I found out I was pregnant with Roree, JT and I knew we had to move out of our cute little 1 bedroom apartment and find something closer to my sister (since she watches her) and definitely something bigger.

    So, we started looking for houses.

    Little did we know it would,…

  3. Melissa And Doug Busy Boards: A Product Review

    Melissa and Doug Busy Board Product Review | All's Fair in Love and Words

    After a friend of mine showed me pictures of this amazing busy board that her husband made for their son, I became obsessed.

    Roree absolutely loves turning lights on and off and doing other fine motor tasks with household items and I knew this would be perfect for her.

    I scoured Pinterest and had big plans for JT to make her a busy board.

    In The Kitchen: Pasta with Chicken, Veggies & Lemon Caper Sauce


    Today was an amazing day for all the little reasons.

    Mother's Helpers

    I scored some great finds at the dollar store, I got to see a friend (albeit very briefly – thunderstorms like to ruin our playdates) who made me a KICKASS diffuser necklace, my niece and nephew played with Roree all day and even got her down for a nap while I continued my “nesting” spree, JT and I were thoroughly entertained by Roree’s…

  7. Things I Heart: Summer Stuff

    Things I Heart: Summer Stuff


    Yesterday, when I picked up Roree from my sister’s house, she was shirtless and sweaty.

    Roree, not my sister. ;)

    It turns out they were dancing to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. It is, apparently, Roree’s new favorite song. Ironic, isn’t it? My little grumper guss’ favorite song is called “Happy.”

  8. A (few) Week(s) in the Life… Visits from friends, nesting and lots of family time

    A (few) Week(s) in the Life… Visits from friends, nesting and lots of family time

    It’s been fairly low-key around here, lately.

    There is a plague going around my town and a lot of my friends and their kids have been sick with a nasty stomach bug recently, so I’ve been staying under the radar quite a bit.

    My extreme phobia of vomiting + being hugely pregnant + not wanting Roree to go through that has made me a bit of a hermit.

    If I’m being honest, I started hermit-ing awhile…

  9. A Week in the Life: Seeing Violet

    A Week in the Life: Seeing Violet


    We started having Fridays off at work a couple weeks ago, which is a nice little perk. The first Friday I had off was celebrated by a park date with a friend in which we got rained out of. It ended up being kind of cute because Roree and her friend had a fantastic time jumping in puddles until it started thundering and we had to head home.

  10. Things I Heart: Make up, morning hair and more

    Things I Heart: Make up, morning hair and more

    This week has been FLYING by and I’m ok with that.

    I have some fun things coming up, like the Jungle Safari Tour and Monkey Feeding at Dade City’s Wild Things that I bought a few weeks ago from Half Off Depot. It was only $25 and we’d only have to pay an extra $12 so that Roree can feed the monkeys. Other than that JT and I are included in the tour.

    I’ve been dying to take Roree to feed monkeys…

    When I was in elementary school, I was obsessed with R.L. Stein. I devoured all the Goosebump books I could get my hands on, then as I got older I moved on to his Fear Street series.

    During those years, I wrote several stories that were obviously influenced by those books. They were about ghosts, witches and nightmares. I believe I wrote a 5-part saga called The Midnight Madness Clubwhen I was…

  12. The Birthday Week

    In a desperate attempt to fit in all the things I won’t be able to do immediately after having Violet, I’ve been filling my weekend calendar with all sorts of fun events.

    Whether these events are for myself or Roree, I can’t entirely say, but it has been a busy several weeks. And will be a busy several weeks to come.


    Instead of attempting to write about each of these events, I’m…

    A Week In The Life: Sick Sucks, but Easter Doesn’t!

    Violette Jayne

    It’s Week 21 and Little Miss has been movin’ and shakin’ lately! Actually, just as of last night, I really started feeling her wiggle around! I was laying in bed and it was almost alarming how much she was stretching and rolling! I’d very nearly forgotten that incredible, surreal feeling and I hope I never do again. It is such an amazing, awe-inspiring thing.

    Things I Heart (i.e things that are not this awful cold I have)

    It is a little bit of a miracle that I’m awake right now. Well, miracle or mistake. Probably a mistake.

    On Friday, I took Roree to the Glazer Children’s Museum because I won 3 months free membership from my school’s Auction.


    I woke up a little sniffly and my throat a little scratchy, but didn’t think anything of it considering the pollen has been miserable lately. By yesterday, however, things…

    Thankful Thursday: I Love You, Anyway

    Oh, hey Thursday! Thanks for being AWESOME!

    For the most part.

    Except for the times you sucked today… like how I felt vaguely like crap most of the day or how I had to leave work early to rescue my sister from a screaming-in-pain-constipated toddler…

    But it’s ok, now. I forgive you, Thursday. In fact, I forgive you so much that I’m going to take it a step further and be THANKFUL. For today and…
