BabyQ 8 Months Old

Last week Q turned 8 months. She’s just getting bigger and bigger. Where did that tiny baby go that I let sleep on my chest for the first month? I already miss infant BabyQ! She has started crawling and getting into everything now. I bought some gates earlier this week and they come today. I’ll […]

Baby Q 6 and 7 Months

I’ve been a slacker mom. I haven’t updated on Q since she was 5 months old. When she turned 6 months I was waiting for her doctor appointment to post so that I could share her recent measurements, but then I forgot about her appointment and she didn’t get in until a few days before […]

Hunted- Dragonlands 2 Book Review #ControlTheDragons

Note: I received an eARC of this book. All opinions are my own. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the author Megg Jensen. I have read her entire Song of Eloh Series and I read her book Shucked first. My favorite series by her, so far, though, is Dragonlands. I love dragon books and […]

Baby Q 5 Months

I can not believe that my baby is closing in on a half year old already! She has SUCH a personality and she’s such a great baby. Are you sick of me saying that month after month? Seriously, though, if every baby were like her, our world’s population would be even bigger! Just look at […]

Summer is for Families {#LittleMercies Book Launch}

Note: This post is sponsored by Harlequin. I received an ARC of the book Little Mercies. All opinions are my own. Next week, June 24, 2014, Heather Gudenkauf is releasing a book called Little Mercies. It is a book about families and finding the Little Mercies in things. When you’re going through a hard time, look […]

Week 2 of Summer Vacation

Let me tell you, I’m looking forward to July. July for me means some breathing time, time to work, a break! We have been going non-stop since the kids got out of school on the 3th. First my husband got to take Buddy to a Cubs game thanks to Score Big. Buddy was so excited […]

Baby Q 4 Months

On Saturday Quinn turned 4 months old. I can’t believe it! I’ve been holding off on the post, though, because she was seeing the doctor today for her 4 month check up and I wanted to share her stats. She’s still a little peanut! Remember all the bragging I’ve done about how she sleeps through […]

Weight Loss Wednesday Week 1

So I still have no idea what I’m planning to do to help out on this journey. I’ve definitely been drinking a LOT more water this past week and I think that may have been my saving grace. Today when I weighted myself, I was 213; last week I was 212.3, so I had a […]

PNC Bank is full of Lies and Fees

Back in December I decided it was finally time to open a business account for Frosted Fingers. My husband had a few accounts at PNC Bank and told me they had free business checking so I figured I’d go there to open my account. When I first walked in I told the lady that I was […]

Weight Loss Wednesdays

I’ve made the decision. It’s time for me to take the leap and get this weight off. A few weeks after having Baby Q I was almost to my pre-pregnancy weight, but just like always I rebound while breast feeding. Before having Q I was over 230 lbs. I got down to 207, which was 5 […]

Books I Read Last Month {April}

Last month I must have gotten some good reading time in. In March I only read 7 books, but in April I read 11. That brings my total up to 41 books read so far in 2014. I read for pleasure. If you give me a book to learn, I fall asleep and it’ll take […]

Baby Q 3 Months

Can not believe it’s been 3 months since I had my baby girl. It really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long already. I can’t say enough how blessed I am with her. She sleeps through the night almost every night of the week. She naps well through the day so I can get work […]

#40BagsIn40Days Challenge Wrapup

Well, I did it! I finished the challenge. I don’t think I got rid of 40 bags of garbage altogether, but I got rid of a lot. I have so much more still to go. Last week I told you I wanted to hit 4 spots in my house: the boys’ room, girls’ room, book […]

Week 5 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge

So… I had great intentions for last week. Unfortunately my kids were on spring break. My biggest goal last week was to keep the kids happy and busy so my house wouldn’t become a complete disaster and they would have a great break. I accomplished keeping the kids busy and the house didn’t get too […]

Week 4 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge

Last week I didn’t get much accomplished. Knowing I had spring break coming up with the kids this week, I wanted to have all of my work scheduled if possible. So in order to meet deadlines, I was writing, A LOT, last week to make it happen. We also decided to take a last minute […]
