Oliver, Parenthood

Picky, Picky

So just when it appears we have this parenting thing figured out, something happens that throws us for a little bit of a loop.  And from what I understand, that's pretty much to be expected with this parenting gig for the rest of our lives, we'll never get it completely figured out.  This latest snag… Continue reading Picky, Picky


Day Date at Betty Danger’s

Nate and I took this past Friday off to attend the Social Media Breakfast together (it was about beer this month, how could we not go?) and since we had Oliver go to my mom for the day as normal, we decided to take the rest of the day as a "date day" and finally… Continue reading Day Date at Betty Danger’s

Thrift Style Thursday – Tribal

Welcome to Thrift Style Thursday for the week!  Today's theme is "Tribal".  I thought I'd struggle with this one as I really don't have anything in that genre in my closet.  Then I remembered this arrow shirt that I have and I was able to pull something together after all! I tried to get a… Continue reading Thrift Style Thursday – Tribal
