Strawberry Picking

This week Madeline and I met up with a couple friends at a local farm to go strawberry picking. She has such a fun time and I do believe she ate her weight in strawberries. Of course we dressed for the occasion and Madeline wore her little strawberry Shrimp and Grits Kids outfit.

The Mom Friends that Every Mom Should Have

A couple weeks ago I shared a post about the top seven practices that keep us all happy and somewhat together while my husband travels. One of the most important of those was finding your tribe. Those mama friends are everything at keeping me sane when he is away and I am trying to tackle all the things on my own.

By far my biggest adjustment of leaving my full-time job was leaving behind my coworkers. When my Mother-in-Law returned to Florida and Corey went back to work after Madeline was born, I was staring at five long days in front of us just the two of us. With no adults to talk to. All of my friends were working. My mom was working. My friend with almost the same age baby had just finished her maternity leave and was, you guessed it, working.

Coffee + Conversation

It has been a busy few weeks in the W household and I’ve honestly been down right exhausted hence my mini hiatus. After a low-key weekend and ten (!!) hours of sleep last night, I’m feeling much more like myself today and ready for the week ahead.

Let’s chat a little about what’s been going on around these parts, shall we. Madeline went back to preschool from spring break last week and made it through the week in her little Peppa Pig big-girl undies with no accidents. All the praise hands because potty training was a lot of work.
