From the Archives: Prego

Griffin turns ELEVEN today and having all three kids birthdays within 16 days definitely has me all up in my feels and my memories every year.  In honor of alllll the birthdays I thought it would be fun to reshare one of my most popular posts of all time (from almost ten year ago) where I highlight each one of my pregnancies.  Buckle up because it's a long (but fun!) one! HAPPY Wednesday, friends! 


When I did my "Questions Answered" post last week, someone commented that they thought it would be fun to get more info and details about my pregnancies.  I loved the idea so much I got started on it ASAP and I've had so much fun looking back through pictures and remembering the TWO AND A QUARTER YEARS I spent pregnant. ;)

Dave and I had been married for two years when we decided the timing was right to start our family. I was about to start my second year of teaching and thought that a Spring baby would be perfect since I could teach three quarters of the year, then be off from the time the baby was born all the way until the next school year.  A few weeks later and we were here...

Mason's Bday Dinner

Mason is THIRTEEN and I seriously can't believe it.  Another teenager in the house!  I LOVED having babies and toddlers but teens have been surprisingly fun so I'm extra pumped ;) 

He has a golf tournament today and doesn't tee off until late afternoon so we decided to bump his birthday dinner to last night and celebrate him a little bit early.

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! WHAT A WEEK! I feel like I'm just going to keep saying that until school is over in May ;) But for real - it was a busy and fun week!

Yesterday was Luke's last track meet of the season so Mason, my dad and I headed to Brook Hill to watch him run.

Southwest Chicken Bowls

I'm reposting this recipe because it's my all time favorite and as the weather warms up it's a MUST to keep in your rotation.  The aioli is really the star of the show and everyone can make theirs "to order" which is always a plus.  If you try these I'd love to hear what you think and if you already make them thanks to my original post I'd love to hear how/why you love them!

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! I'm going to be honest - this post is mainly going to be Frank pics because he's pretty much everyone's FAVORITE at the moment - hahaha

I'm not a huge Crumbl cookies fan BUT I had a gift card and strawberry pretzel salad is my FAVORITE so we had to try them out.

Big Mac Tater Tot Casserole

I had seen a couple of versions of Big Mac casserole floating around IG and decided to give this one a shot.  It was surprisingly good and even if all you take away from it is the homemade Big Mac sauce it's worth a try ;)

Luke's Cars Cars Birthday Dinner ;)

Luke turned 16 on Monday and I felt like it was only appropriate to celebrate with a "Cars cars" theme.  I've mentioned before that when Luke was little he called Disney cars "Cars cars" since they were cars from the movie Cars and he was OBSESSED!  When we were in Disneyland this past summer the look on his face when we walked into Cars land was priceless and since he'l be getting his license next week I felt like this was an extra fitting theme.

Weekend Recap


HAPPY Tuesday, friends! I had every intention of posting this yesterday BUT we had the best day on Sunday and were all snuggled up watching a movie and I couldn't make myself get up to write this ;) hahahaha

We did something a little different this year and headed to church on Saturday night instead of Sunday morning...
