Everyday Moments - Our Kind of Wonderful

Everyday Moments

Being parents, dog owners, and us both working full time and opposite shifts definitely leads to a crazy life, and crazy schedules, and it’s really easy to get overwhelmed and forget how lucky we are. We both have good jobs that we love, we get to have shifts that lets one of us always be […]


Happy Birthday Harry Potter

I really wanted to start some fun traditions for A to have growing up, and since I love Harry Potter I figured we’d start celebrating his birthday! So, July 31st, his birthday, is now our annual HP celebration! We bust out our Harry Potter games (We have Harry Potter Uno, Harry Potter Triwizard Maze, and […]

Family Croquet Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

Family Croquet Night

Croquet is something I only played a couple times at my grandparents house growing up, but it’s a game K grew up playing, so naturally, we ended up with a croquet set. This was our first time busting it out, and A was more interested in trying to eat the balls, the little mallets, pretty […]


I Love You K, Happy Birthday

It’s your birthday week!!! This year marks 6 of your birthdays we’ve spent together, but it feels like I’ve known you forever, and also like we’ve barely had any time together, if that even makes sense.

Our Favorite Baby Items - Our Kind of Wonderful

Our Favorite Baby Items

With adopting A there wasn’t much we had control of, when or if we’d be chosen, but the one way I could prepare and love this baby that wasn’t here, or ours, was to prepare for her to come. And boy, did I prepare, and then over prepare, and then I still prepared some more. […]

Happy Father's Day K - Our Kind of Wonderful

Happy Father’s Day K!

Becoming parents after we made the decision to adopt happened faster than we ever could have hoped for, or what we were told to expect. I was the one stressing and over preparing to handle it all, while K was just as chill as could be, building the nursery furniture and just excited to be […]
