Horses, Meet Baby

Now that little Bridgette is 5 weeks old, I figured it was time for her to meet the horses. After all, she’s going to be spending her WHOLE LIFE with them, so the sooner she gets along with them the better. (We’re agreed the whole point of having kids is to force your hobbies on […]

Time Management

tummy time

Little baby Bridgette is now nearly 5 weeks old. It really does go so fast! Granted, it probably also went fast because my life has recently become a blur of days. Day and night no longer matter.

The Major Life Changing Event

You already knew that I wasn’t dead, so me being alive isn’t the big deal (although, in a way, it’s a pretty big deal for me.) Instead, this is a different life changing event, although it is actually related to why I have been MIA for a while now.  For you see… I am pregnant! […]

I’m Not Dead

It’s been almost three months since my last post. My god, where has the time went?! At first it was time. And then it was exhaustion. And then when it wasn’t my routine anymore, I just forgot about it… To get everyone all caught up, here’s the high level of things that happened over the […]
