Movie Night & Cuddles with A - Our Kind of Wonderful

Movie Nights & Cuddles with A

We try not to do a lot of TV with A, other than some Baby Signing Time watching to help her, and us, learn, and to give us a chance to sweep and fold laundry , haha. But, she’s now to the point that she can last for oh, 15-30 minutes when we do family […]

Adoption is Hard

Adoption is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve been through a lot in my life. When I tell people that, they just smile. When I searched for information on what to prepare for as we tried to adopt I never could find much information from the adoptive parents perspective on how difficult it is. […]

Scrabble Date Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

Scrabble Date Night

I feel like I have an unfair advantage when it comes to Scrabble date nights, as even though he’s an english major, K can’t really spell…. but he beats me at pretty much any game we play, so I’ll take it! I’ve never been a big Scrabble player, but then again, before marrying K I […]

Adoption is, obviously, […]

Story time with A

Story time with A

We’ve always loved story time with A, but as she’s gotten older it’s just become more and more fun. She giggles, jabbers, wants to turn the pages, and loves the crazy voices we do as we read to her. It’s honestly one of my favorite parts of our bedtime routine, reading a book before we […]

British Date Box - Our Kind of Wonderful

British Date Box

This British date box was so much fun, and seriously packed with things to do! We got to play Naked Pictionary, which included cards of words, a pad of paper, and invisible ink pens so we had to draw without being able to see what we were drawing, then we shown a light to see […]
