Where have I been?

Hello friends!

Wow, has it been a while! I received some e-mails from readers over the months and decided to post a quick life update!

 We had another baby! Her name is Claire and she is already 5 months old! Isn't she a beauty?!



Here she is at one month old. She's such a precious little doll:



Our little man Charlie turned three this summer! We threw him a little Construction themed birthday party. Our baby boy is growing so fast:


Summer strolls around Portland with two kiddos in tow:


Most recent family photo from a few weeks ago at Claire's dedication:


and some random little pictures of our life lately, our kids. They keep us plenty busy!



Over the last year we also remodeled our basement and exterior of our home. We are going to remodel our kitchen this January. I have been having a lot of fun picking out stuff for our kitchen!

I also got a new job back in February. I work only two days per week and I love it. I feel like I have a perfect work/life balance. Being home with the kids more has been a huge blessing!

As for blogging/instagram/social media, I took a long break as you can see! I was really sick when I was pregnant with Claire, transitioned to a new job, remodeled our house, and then had a newborn. I think it is safe to say I have been too busy to keep up with the online world!

I do have a new site I am working on that I will be sharing in the coming months! I've been collaborating with some other mom's and am excited to share it soon!

Unfortunately, I will no longer be updating this blog. My time will be focused on my new project and I will be updating that site regularly! Once it is up and running, I will share the link here!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to those who dropped a note to check in!

Love ya'll!

Pumpkin Patch 2015













I've said it a million times! Fall and winter are my favorite times of year from the crisp leaves all over the ground to the Christmas music come the day after Thanksgiving (I've actually already watch two Christmas movies and have been listening to Christmas music for about a week...... yikes!). I cannot imagine living in a place where there is no fall and winter! I love Portland this time of year!

On Saturday we went on our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. Normally we go to Roloff Farms but this year we decided to check out a new farm: Plumper Pumpkin Patch & Tree Farm.

This place was so cute! They had so many kid friendly activities including pony rides, a playground, tee-pees, train rides and more! If you live in the Portland/Metro area, this farm is a must for the family! We hopefully plan to come get our Christmas tree from this farm in a month or so. 

Charlie was all smiles, as you can see from the pictures. He's so much fun these days! He is starting to talk more and the things he says are so entertaining. I am going to have to start keeping track of all the silly things that come out of his mouth! So far two has been blast! I love these boys!

Happy Fall!

Lemon Butter Herb Pasta with Chicken


This is one of my favorite pasta recipes. 
It is easy and pretty much fool proof!

I've been getting a few e-mails here and there with readers asking where I have been all these months and if I plan on blogging anymore. 

The answer is...
