The other day I met up with one of my best gal pals for breakfast, coffee and play time for Nora. My friend Stephanie and I were both pregnant at the same time and had our babies just 5 weeks apart so our kids are destined to be best buddies!

It was so nice to catch up with a friend and have our little ones play together.  Since Nora isn’t in daycare she doesn’t get much interaction with toddlers, other than at Vibes, so it’s good for her to play with someone other than me!

Nora had a lot of fun playing on Wyatt’s airplane.

Wyatt had even more fun pushing Nora around on the airplane!


Give a girl a bone

We have a cranky, teething girl on our hands. Just after her front top teeth cut and she saw some relief, her eye teeth  started coming in. Poor girl!! She is such a happy & content little girl most of the time, but these darn teeth are getting the best of her. She’s never really been into teethers, but give this girl a bone and she’s in ‘chicken heaven’.

I hope these teeth cut soon and give me and her some relief!!


Pom poms and pipe cleaners 

 I’m always looking for a new and fun activity for me and Nora to do! So while at Hobby Lobby the other day, (speaking of HL it is nearly impossible to not spend ALL THE MONIES there. I mean, if I bought everything I said ‘oh that’s cute’ to, half of these store would be gone.). Anyway, got sidetracked, while at HL I picked up some pipe cleaners, colored Pom poms and a feather boa-Nora is obsessed with putting things around her neck so we thought she needed a boa, who doesn’t really!?!  

Nora has had SO much fun playing with the pipe cleaners and Pom poms. 
What a goofy girl!  
Princess coming through, watch out!  

Some of the best things about these were:

  • They are quiet!! Hallelujah!
  • You can get many uses out of them and do so many different things with them!! I shaped the pipe cleaners into all sorts of objects, used an egg carton to sort the pom poms,  endless possibilities!
  • They are soft: i.e. It’s not like stepping on a thorn! I swear every room in our house has at least ONE you laying on the floor and we are bound to step on it. These are literally like stepping on a fluffy cloud!
  • Cheapest toy I’ve bought!

These have been a big hit and Nora is STILL playing with it all after a few days! Winning!

busy doing nothing

That’s how I have lately; that we have been busy but not doing anything in particular.  Busy enough, that my posts have been a distant memory, it’s been over a week!! Whhhaaaa?!?!?  So I’m doing a re-cap of what have been up to.

I tried to read the paper.


Got a workout in, in our garage gym.  She was thoroughly amused.

We played at the park…it’s been a vey warm start to our fall!

Our little pumpkin family.  That’s me on the left. (haha)


Nora took her first bath in the BIG tub.  Cory doesn’t know how to move out of the light so I can take a decent picture.  Amateur.IMG_1745 IMG_1746

I baked some paleo pumpkin chocolate cookies.  SO GOOD!

I also ‘started a new business’, if you can call it that…but more on that later.

It was a busy-ish week and a relaxing weekend while Cory was home.
