Super Awesome Packing Strategy

We’re moving! In like… 3 weeks! So I have to share my super awesome packing strategy, which seems to be working pretty smoothly so far. A few hiccups, but I’ll share those too.

As Ansen said, as extroverted as I am, I like systems more than people. So I set up the system before I started packing. Now everything goes smoothly into the system and it gets labeled and color coordinated. I honestly don’t feel like it was much more work than simply packing up, expect maybe the 30 minutes to an hour I used to get everything set up (including the shopping). Without further adieu…

Let me just preface this with our backstory. The TL:DR version is that we tried to by a house 2 years ago and it all fell through. It was heartbreaking. We were devastated. We stopped looking and just settled back into our house, had another baby, and life went on.


Rainbow Dash Birthday

My sweet first baby turned 4 in January. She is determined, independent, and head strong. She’s creative and funny. She has an insatiable appetite for someone to play with her. (Luckily, her playmate is growing as well!) She’s tall and sassy and loves her dresses.

Avie also loves Rainbow Dash. She loves Elsa more now, but Rainbow Dash was her favorite at birthday time. So we made it a birthday theme. (In case you don’t know, Rainbow Dash is the dare devil pony from the My Little Pony show. Not exactly the one I would think Avie would identify with most. You know, the girly dresses and heels, and the refusal to wear pants.)

Arwyn turns ONE!

I’m 10 days late on this one, but Arwyn has turned the big O-N-E. It has seemed like an immensely long and incredibly short year. But doesn’t it always?


This time, baby number two, we thought we knew what to expect. Turns out, we were wrong. We were in for a wild ride. From the very beginning, she’s thrown us for a bit of a loop…

A Hard January

January has been particularly hard for our family, so I’m kind of glad it’s over. First, we each took our turn with the flu (or at least a very, very bad cold). And of course, we couldn’t just all have […]
