Layered S’mores Parfait for Valentine’s Day

If you had to choose, between giving up salt or giving up sugar, which would it be? Tough one, huh? For me, even though I can’t do much of it with this pregnancy, I love sweets.

Happy New Year, Friends!

Happy New Year, Friends!

I’m still a little in shock that the holidays are over and it’s already 2014. Really, the older you get time goes by so much more quickly, it scares you. Last year was great to us, and I’m hoping this year will be even greater. It’s crazy, but baby number four will be here in […]

What’s a bonus to having another girl? We already have a ton of clothes from her sisters. However, a lot of the clothes we have were already hand-me-downs when my almost seven year old was born.
