Birthday Blitz

My little buddy will be two next month. Can you believe it? Roman’s birthday is August 27th. We’ll be having his party a couple weeks before that, and we’ve decided to go with the “Old McDonald” theme. This kid could sing ‘E-I-E-I-O’ all day long (and sometimes does). It’ll just be a small family-and-friends party, and I just

Lanette’s Blog: Five Hours

That’s the amount of sleep that I usually get a night. And in no way is it ever… go to sleep and wake up five blissful hours later. It’s get the kids to bed, get stuff ready for the morning, finally crash, wake up to a crying baby, rock back

Lanette’s Blog: Look For The Good

I choose to believe that there’s so much more good going on in the world every single day than bad. And I betcha, if you weighed it all out on any given day… the fact would be that nice people prevail. And, so many times our kids get the brunt

Lanette’s Blog: The Ultimate Clean Up

Oh my gosh… I had no idea just how much bad energy was coming from the basement. And it wasn’t because there was any flooding… it wasn’t because we had any skeletons hiding in the closets… it was because there was so much stuff. Our basement had been overridden by

Lanette’s Blog: The Journey Begins

So, here we go. It’s officially begun! The journey of taking off the pounds that being pregnant packed on. Things have changed. . . oh, have they ever. From high school when we seriously at pizza, breadsticks, and soda for lunch every day, to even my first pregnancy eight years
