Long time, no blog......

So, I'm the world's worst blogger. Officially. My last post was in August?!?! I have missed blogging and the entire book blog community, but unfortunately life sometimes just gets in the way. By life I mean cute new babies (see pic below) and my three amazing, but time consuming, big kids. So between a nightmarish pregnancy (9 months of morning sickness. Serious torture!), homeschooling, newborns, sleep deprivation, and planning for our long awaited move (to Texas y'all!!) life is C.R.A.Z.Y. I haven't read a book that wasn't filled with colorful illustrations in months, but today I discovered nursing my squishy little guy is the perfect time to pick up a book. I'm hesitant to say I'm back, but I want to be. I need to be. I need to immerse myself in something that didn't grow in my uterus. I love my kids, don't get me wrong, but it is so easy to lose yourself when you're a mother. & well I need something to keep my post-partum brain from turning to mush.

I lost my domain so I'm hoping switching back to my blogspot address works. If you made it through this rambling stream of thoughts, I thank you.

Mr. Squish who kept me nauseous and suffering from vertigo for the better part of a year.

Worth every single dry heave ;)


  1. Aww, what a cutie! Welcome back and hope to see more of you soon. :D

  2. Darling! Welcome back!!!

    I use to love checking my blogs during feeding time.

    As a woman that had 2 months of morning sickness, I can relate and man do I feel for you.


    He is a beauty!

    And homeschooling? You go girl. You're my hero.

    How old are your older kids?

  3. Thanks everyone :)

    Yep we homeschool 2 of the 4 kiddos. My older kids are 13, 8 & 6. The teen wants to brave the public school system so we are giving it a try. The elementary age love homeschool so I've been busily organizing our curriculum for the year :)

    1. You're a rock star. How long have you been homeschooling?

    2. This is our 3rd year, but first time going the traditional route. We used the virtual school through our state the last 2 years which laid everything out for us & even sent all the supplies. It was ok, but very structured with lots of busy work. It didn't create the learning environment I wanted for my family. I'm hoping to have more fun while learning this year & not be glued to a computer screen or a worksheet. Thankfully our new home state (Texas) is very homeschool friendly :)
