DIY Spice Drawer!

So excited to post this project!  It's one that I spotted on Pintrest and finally got to do it over my maternity leave.  So happy with the end result too!
So you know how you have that spice cabinet and it's chuck full of different size bottles.  You know there's one that broke open so a push of spice always hits you in the face when you open it!  You have no idea what you have inventory wise so there's probably duplicates of cumin since you never use it anyhow.  Well there's a way to get past the madness and have a super cute spice display.  Instead of a cabinet...store them in a drawer!

Lil R's Birth Story

Sitting here writing this I can't believe I'm the mother of two healthy boys.  God has truly blessed our family and I've been thanking Him daily for it.  As you know this pregnancy went about the same as it did with lil A.  I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes halfway through and it was predicted I would have a slightly larger that normal child via c-section.  With that said, the doctor gave me the option to try naturally but I wasn't allowed to go past February 24th...otherwise they scheduled me for a c-section that morning.  As our due date of February 20th crept by I realized this kid was going to be as stubborn as I am.  I mentally prepared myself for a c-section delivery.  That Monday morning, we headed to the hospital at 10 am.  Being a surgery I was asked not to eat or drink since dinner the night before.  You can imagine how ravenous I was.  I tried not to think about it, but I caught myself salivating at the sight of saltine crackers near the coffee station in the hospital hallway.  Yeah...this mommy wanted a steak.

...and I'm back!

For real this time!  I took a much need maternity break to get the hang of juggling two babies.  I now have them both on schedules and started my first day back at work without any stress.  It's been a crazy couple months though.  I really missed sharing the experience with all of you...and I plan to make it up.  Matt and I also finished up some awesome updates to the house...so stay tuned for that.

Tomorrow I'll be sharing lil R's birth story and how he changed our family's life in one single moment!
This summer is going to be great!  We have a long list of projects lined up as well as some adventures planned!  But what I want to know now is how you've all been?!  Are you still even reading this??! lol.  I know a lot of new mommas are out there too.  Congrats!!

He's here!


On Monday we welcomed our second boy! 


Reid 
February 24, 2014
8lbs 15oz - 20 inches long


We're all home and getting used to life as a family of four!

Thank you for all the prayers!  It's been such a joy  to watch lil A meet his brother for the first time and see how gentle and kind he's been towards him! :)
 They say with multiple children you find a way to love them each "differently" and that couldn't be any more true!  Both of my boys have caught my heart in ways I didn't imagine.



I hope to post a birth story soon.  For now...just getting used to this new family dynamic and recovering from the surgery.
