You may be wondering where this post is going based on the dichotomy of a title, huh? Me too. Don’t worry we’re all in this together. I sometimes wonder what it’s like to plan out blog posts. To have them be strategic and organized versus a brain dump of the tiny elements of creativity or […]

So how do you survive your first winter back in the Midwest after living in Florida? Don’t blog about it and it’s like it didn’t even happen. Not sure whether there is a joke or an excuse in there, but I needed a transition so take it for what it is. Truth is our first […]

If you follow me on social media and/or are a co-worker or family member (which let’s face it is about 99.9% of my readers), then you know I recently finished up a batch of sugar cookies. I know what you’re thinking. We get it Sarah. You bake. Blah. Blah. Blah.  If that’s what you’re saying […]

Wedding Snapshots: the details

When it comes to wedding and party photos, I’m a sucker for detail shots. And if you’re a sucker for detail shots then we should be best friends. Which is pretty much what our photographer and I became as soon as I looked at her work and saw that she appreciated the little details just […]

Super Spring Break

If you couldn’t tell from my overgramming last week, my nephews (and my sister) came to visit us to celebrate their spring break. Unfortunately I spent most of the week at work, but I’m grateful for the afternoons and evenings I spent brushing up on my toilet humor, identifying fire ant hills and avoiding getting […]

It’s wedding season! Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday we were all getting together for bridal showers and bachelorette parties every other weekend? Truth is it’s been a while since we all got together to celebrate a wedding. That’s why Matt and I decided to be the last. You know, to build the suspense and excitement. […]

Dear Santa, This is Finnegan Murphy here. You may not have our new address because my family moved to a place where there is no snow in the wintertime. If anyone will understand my situation it’s you. I’m a Swiss MOUNTAIN dog for goodness sake. I live for snow. I like to pounce in the […]

What music do mummies listen too?

I apologize for my blog infrequency but you know I’m not one to miss a holiday so it’s only fitting that I bring it back for one of my favorites. I love Halloween. I would say it’s my favorite […]

Moving Day

Hey there. Me again. Back after a brief hiatus with more photos and fewer words. I promise I’ll be back on a regular schedule once we are all moved in but until then I hope you’ll settle for a photo update of the last few days. Friday was spent down in Champaign celebrating with family and […]

Showering Baby King

One of my best friends is having a baby! If that phrase sounds familiar to you, it should. I’ve been saying it on repeat now for the last two years and probably will for at least another one. Yes, at times it does seem surreal that the girls I transitioned from friendship bracelets to bars with are now […]
