sharing the (coffee) love

Remember how excited I was about the new International Delight Iced Coffee? The cartons are now being sold at Walmart, whooo! Have you gone shopping for them yet? Do you love them or what?! I was lucky enough to be able to share the yummy goodness with a friend.

I decided to send a package of all 3 flavors (Original, Vanilla, and Mocha) to Beth at Me As A

Halloween! for the grown-ups

Steve and I went to a Halloween party the weekend before Halloween… I’m late on posting the pictures because my camera died and I couldn’t find the charger anywhere! So finally, here they are… (I was a devil [a costume I bought 2 years ago and never wore] and the hubby was Jesus, haha):

Why don’t friends with kids have time?

This article is perfect. I’m sure some of my friends have the same question of me and I do feel really bad about it… and this is my explanation…

The online dating world of… mommy groups

I was starting to get a little bored… home from work by 1:30, Steve gone at work, and hanging out with a baby that lacks great conversation skills (googahhbluuaahh can only get you so far).

It’s much better now because my two best friends are home (one is a teacher so she’s off for the summer and the other just moved back into town) and my mom and a few other friends are also teachers and are off for the summer now. My friends practically tripled! Haha. And it has been wonderful–making plans, getting

Memorial Day: weekend at the lake

My husband’s parents own a lakehouse in WI and we spend a lot of time there over the summer. Memorial Day weekend is like “opening weekend” up there. So we headed up Saturday morning and I think at it’s busiest point, there were about 20 people there… family friends and Steve’s younger brother and all his friends (that used to be us and all our friends… ah, the good ole days, lol). This was Ryan’s first time at the lake so we were super excited! It was a wonderfully relaxing weekend. It was so
