All the Bradford Pear Trees were in full bloom last week while we were out on a walk. It was 70 degrees and beautiful and yesterday it was lightly snowing. It's been a less than normal winter.  We eat a lot of chicken and I will be making this soon.  Buried deep in the archives I've got some recipes that would be great for Easter. Check them out here, here and here. I love to watch college basketball and the NCAA tournament starts today! I think Duke has a great shot at winning it all!!

  This is a picture from 2015 when we visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. It was beautiful and this picture makes me eager for Spring and too all the pretty flowers in bloom. I'm slowly getting caught up with This is Us but I know what has happened to one of the main characters already. A blogger I follow started discussing the show on FB without the friendly *Spoiler Alert* beforehand so that kind of stinks.  I am also slowly making my way through Magnolia Story. It's been great so far and it's a super easy read. I only spend a few minutes … I'm not finished reading yet...

This & That

I finally uploaded the rest of Grayson's birth story. I've had it finished for months but I needed to clean it up and decided three parts was better than two. You can read the first part here. Grayson was fitted for a helmet a couple of weeks ago and he started wearing it on Tuesday. Since he was stuck in an uncomfortable position in the womb and then spent five weeks laying in the same spot … I'm not finished reading yet...

Welcome Baby Grayson-A Birth Story- part 3

Part 1 here Part 2 here Almost 24hours after Grayson was born I finally got to see and hold him. I had never been in a NICU before and the one Grayson was in holds around 130 babies and there were 130 babies in there. It's a very sad place. We washed our hands and put on our gown coverings and then Jason led the way to Grayson's "spot." He was one of many babies in a very large room on one … I'm not finished reading yet...

To read part 1 click here. Grayson was born 7.22.16| 4:24 p.m.| 5 lbs. 12 oz.| 19 in. long- 5 weeks and 1 day before his due date. Grayson was bigger than I anticipated.

I hope you had a Happy Valentine's Day! Every year I look forward to a special box of chocolates. My husband goes to the local candy shop and selects my favorites so there are no pieces that go uneaten!  I used Kroger Clicklist for the first time last week. I loved it! It's not something I would want to use every time I grocery shop but when it's as cold as it was last week and the flu … I'm not finished reading yet...

This & That

  This picture of Grayson has been my phone wallpaper for almost a month and it's one of my favorites of him. It makes me sad though because he already looks different. In my attempts of decluttering this year, this list is a good one to read. Is a wok worth the space it takes up? Not if you're trying to live minimally, like I am attempting to. This article made me feel better … I'm not finished reading yet...

Welcome Baby Grayson: A Birth Story-part 1

I want to share Grayson's birth story but the storyteller in me considers it necessary to share details about my pregnancy and that will better explain why Grayson was born in the condition that he was in. In the beginning I had a healthy pregnancy. My blood pressure was great, my weight gain was within range, I passed my glucose test and Grayson always had a strong heartbeat. Of course there's … I'm not finished reading yet...

Boy Nursery

Hi there! I'm so happy to be dusting off the ole blog. I wanted to do it much sooner than I am but a rough pregnancy made it too difficult. I also wanted to post about out little man's nursery before he was born. However, he came about a month early due to complications throughout my pregnancy.  Since he is still in the hospital, and I spend a lot of time sitting beside his crib, I … I'm not finished reading yet...
