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

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

    In-The-Kitchen

    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…

    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.”

  5. 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…

    A Week in the Life: Seeing Violet

    Happenings

    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.

  7. 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…

  9. 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…

    Week 20. I cannot believe I am already approximately halfway through this pregnancy! Time has absolutely flown by!

    I have to say, in comparison to my pregnancy with Roree, my back is killing me WAY more than it was with her, far earlier. I know it mostly has to do with me constantly lifting her, but jeesh! The next 20 or so weeks seem a little daunting…

    Things I Heart: I WANT CHICKENS!

    Today has been quite eventful. Why I am still awake when Roree is sleeping peacefully in the other room, I do not know… No, actually, I DO know. My friend is hosting a Jamberry Nails party and I’m trying not to spend a bajillion dollars on these awesome things!

    Anyway, Sunday I’ll (hopefully) post more about what I’ve been up to, but for now… here is some Friday ♥s for you:
