Watch Knox Grow // 11 Months

11 month Collage

It’s getting real friends. T minus ONE MONTH until ONE YEAR.

I know this next month is going to FLY by. Partially because just when you want time to slow down, it seems to speed up, but also because we’re entering into the holiday season. When I was little it seemed like the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas took 3 months instead of 1, and now that I’m an adult, and especially as a mom, it seems to take one day.

In Real Life // Part 2.

In Real Life Part 2

I recently read an article with a tag line, “what the church can learn from Fallon.” (I think I’ve said this before, but I LOVE Jimmy Fallon. I constantly tell Stuart that I want to be Jimmy’s BFF. I’m also secretly jealous of his bestie friendship with Drew Barrymore, who I also love, and wish we could all just be friends and hang out.)

Mother’s Day or ANY Day!

I didn’t really want to write this post before Mother’s Day because the items I’m writing about don’t JUST have to be for Mother’s Day…they’re perfect for birthdays, Christmas, or just because! But since Mother’s Day is coming up, (quickly!) it seemed fitting…so even if you’re not a mom, or you already bought something for your mom/wife/sister/friend, keep reading! You might want to purchase one of these for another reason or for yourself!!

Baby Grand is Growing // 23 Weeks

This week is a milestone for Baby, because he/she is FINALLY an entire pound in weight! Crazy to think how much Baby still has to gain, but I feel like hitting 1 lb is kind of a big deal.

5 Things Fridays

Today is the 2nd day in a row of very rainy, dreary days. I know there are people out there who love the rain, (they probably live in Seattle) but I am NOT one of them. I know we need the rain to keep things growing and healthy, but rainy days really affect my mood. All I feel like doing is lounging in sweats, reading books and drinking coffee.

One year ago today I became Mrs. Stuart Grandlienard. It was by far the best day of my life, and for those who know me well, it wasn’t simply because it was a whole day all about me! (Although it was definitely fun feeling as close to a Princess as I probably ever will for a day.) It was so special to have so many of our friends and family all in one room to see us become husband and wife, then to dance the night away with us afterwards!
