Some Stuff and a Free Printable

Some Stuff and a Free Printable

Can you believe it’s March already?  It’s no secret that I have been on a quest to simplify and organize my life this year.  In doing this, I noticed that my children have much more active social lives than I do.  To keep track of all their activities and social engagements I created this calendar for my refrigerator (or the inside door of a cabinet). I thought you guys might find it useful too so I’m including it here on…

Christmas Card {2016}

Christmas Card {2016}

Merry, Merry Christmas!  I’m popping in to share our Christmas card with you! We went to Myrtle Beach, SC for the weekend after Thanksgiving.  I managed to coerce the girls into their Christmas dresses for a little photo shoot on the beach right after sunset.  I loved the way they turned out!  I edited a few of the pictures that night and ordered my Christmas cards from Vistaprint during their Black Friday sale.  It was so nice to have my…

Our First 5K {Girls on the Run}

Our First 5K {Girls on the Run}

We finally ran our first 5K!  I’ve had running a 5K on my bucket list for a while.  I’d even started training a couple of times using one of those couch to 5K apps.  However, every time around week 3 or 4 I’d get busy at work or it was winter and too dark outside (or I’d find out I was pregnant) and I would give up. This year my oldest daughter signed up for Girls on the Run after…

The Last Day of School

The Last Day of School

I’m a little behind schedule here but I have to share our last day of school.  The first day of school will be rolling around again before we know it. I do not know where this year went. My little Avery finished Kindergarten and our oldest finished the third grade.  I am so glad to be free from lunch box packing duty and trying to beat the school’s tardy bell every morning! (We did the tardy bell walk of shame…

Chatbooks

Chatbooks

I am so smitten with Chatbooks right now!  It’s an app that takes your Instagram photos and prints them into a little book.  Once you hit 60 photos in your book they send you a little email and you have 3 days to edit it and make any changes before it is printed and automatically mailed to you!   You can edit your captions and exclude any photos that you don’t want in the book.  Each photo has the date it…

Our New Baby

Our New Baby

I’ve been absent from the old blog for too long!  Meet the reason why…  Our sweet new baby girl, Miranda! She is an absolute doll and blessing!  I can’t believe she’s already over a month old.  These pictures were taken when she was eight days old. Her big sisters are totally smitten with her and have been such a huge help around the house. You’ll be seeing a lot more of her on the Bay Bush! Photos by Climbing Heights Photography.

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 2}

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 2}

We kicked off the second day of our vacation at the Magic Kingdom.  You can read about the first day at Universal Islands of Adventure here.  And just in case you are not familiar…Magic Kingdom is a Disney park and Islands of Adventure is not.  They are owned by different companies and multi-day tickets are not interchangeable between the two parks.    So my plan was to be at the Magic Kingdom at “Rope Drop” and see the characters come…

Christmas…Plays and Such

Christmas…Plays and Such

I’m posting in reverse a little here but I had to share a few pictures of our Christmas Cantata at church and a few from Christmas morning. Instead of having a Christmas play this year, we added a few theatrics to the choir’s annual cantata.  The holidays are so busy already it is difficult to find a time to rehearse that fits everyones schedule.  Even with our few sparse rehearsals, we didn’t have a single one with everyone present.  So…

Trick or Treat at the Palace

Trick or Treat at the Palace

We did Trick or Treating at Tryon Palace the Saturday before Halloween.  We totally found out about this at the last minute and the girls’ Halloween costumes hadn’t even come in yet.  We threw on a few dress up outfits and dashed out of the house.  McKenna had been to the gardens before but Avery had not.  They are both begging to go back and take the inside tour at Christmas now! We visited the Blacksmith’s shop first. And made a…
