finally friday after the storm

last night was one of the craziest nights of sleep/non sleep i’ve had in a while. first we came home to a blazing stuffy house because we had to close all the windows and then i kept waking up to the oddest labor dreams. not because i was particularly freaked out from class (surprisingly i […]

why i went to birth class

so tonight joe and i are going to birth class again tonight for session 2 of 4. i’m not going to lie the first one was a little intense. i mean the lady pushed a plastic doll through a knit cervix. that was alot to take in lol. however as corny as it is and […]

thirty six weeks

is anyone else completely flipped upside down on their schedules right now? having a random tuesday off has completely thrown me for a loop i woke up today thinking i had to go to church, not because i’ve particularly sinned more than normal but because i thought it was a sunday lol. however it is […]

weekend recap mid holiday

what is this day? our office is open and i didn’t take a vacation day so it’s like a check in in between a weekend and a random day off. lol it’s turned me all around and upside down. i’m not sure where i’m supposed to be and when because my normal monday routine is […]

finally friday holiday weekend

so i guess you blink in may and open your eyes to the fourth of july holiday weekend already. i wrote on instagram this morning that i’ve been hearing a phrase lately that “the days are long but the years are short” i disagree. everything just seems to be going so fast. the days, the […]

farmers market mornings

on wednesday mornings i’ve had this ritual for a while where i try not to schedule my gym appointments or early morning meetings and i get to the farmers market first thing before work. if i time it right i have about 15-20 minutes of quiet, concentrated shopping time wandering the market. i try to […]

thirty five weeks

i hope the goldfish is born on a day just like today. this morning (hope i’m not jinxing myself) has been absolutely perfect. woke up early to get chores done, had breakfast with joe with the windows open and then stopped at the holland farmers market before sitting down to emails and a large iced […]

long weekend recap baby shower

let me begin this with saying that i’m ok, baby goldfish is ok, we’re all doing good today but just feeling a little sore and stiff. yesterday did NOT go as i had planned it to go. i mean few things ever really do but in this case. nope. i spent my morning before work […]

finally friday baby shower

i popped open my phone calendar this morning and was absolutely elated to see that the only thing scheduled was my baby shower this sunday. that means almost an entire weekend of NO PLANS! that means almost an entire weekend of hanging out at the farm working in the garden and getting things ready for […]

Sheep Nursery

our first step in getting started on the nursery was to call the exterminator. glamorous i know. and once that was all taken care of (listen, farmhouse problems aka field mice).. once that was all taken care i felt like i could move on to getting started taking care of the nursery. it was a […]

thirty four

here we are again. seriously the time went by so fast that i skipped right over week 33! the days seem so long but the time just flew by. and now we are at thirty four weeks. that means baby could honestly now really come at any time. my feet say they’d be just fine […]

Simple Strawberry Fruit Leather

there is something about michigan when the sun is out and the farmers markets kick into full gear. i do this every year where i have this fear that come september i’m going to be freaking out that i didn’t can enough, didn’t freeze enough, didn’t process enough of the spring and summer produce. then […]
