We had the best weekend celebrating Logan’s 9th birthday. Her team won their volleyball tournament, she got all the Shopkins a girl could want, we upheld our Chuck E Cheese birthday tradition, had a mommy daughter movie date to see the Nutcracker, and we ended on a high note with a rock climbing birthday party for Logie and all her friends. CJ and I were exhausted come Sunday night but our hearts were so full! I can’t believe we have a 9 year old. 😳🙈 I am so lucky to be her mama. Logan is such a special girl and I can’t wait to see what mountains she will move this next year.💗 #girlmom #stronggirls #happyhome #familytraditions #lifestyle #familylife #birthdaygirl #mommyblogger
We have a tradition in our family that for each persons birthday we decorate the house the night before while the birthday boy/girl is sleeping. My kiddos have grown to love this family tradition over the years. They get so excited waking up on their birthday to a house decorated JUST for them. They equally love decorating for me and CJ’s birthday which is the cutest thing ever. 😭 I keep a box of birthday decorations that I’ve collected over the years just for this tradition and I’ve built up quite an assortment! I’m decorating the house early for Logan this year because...I want to! I believe it’s so important to seize any opportunity you can to make your children feel extra special and loved. Birthdays are the perfect opportunity! • • • • • • • • • #birthday #birthdaydecor #familytraditions #momblogger #momlife #lifestyle #happyhome #
I went to my first cooking class EVER tonight hosted by the women’s ministry from my church and it was a blast! I seriously had the best time. Cooking is such a fun way to bring people together. We made French onion soup and hanger steak with Bernaise sauce. For dessert we made a classic Crème Brûlée and I used a blow torch for the first time.😳 I was super intimidated by the blow torch but it was much easier to operate than I expected.😁👌🏻 I really love to cook but to be honest at this stage of my life cooking is not easy. Between the kids school, extra curricular activities, homework, and CJ’s traveling work schedule I really don’t have it in me to cook the big dinners like I used to. I know it’s just a season though! 😉 Tonight was such a treat for me. I walked away with some good new knowledge that I can apply in my own kitchen and better yet inspired! • • • • • • • • • • #momlife #cooking #mommyblogger #cookingclass #lifestyle #familylife #wifelife #soulfood
Holy moly y’all, hitting the publish button for this week’s blog post was actually terrifying. I sat there just staring at it for a good 20 mins before pulling the trigger because I went all in with this post. Writing this post brought me to tears but it also really helped me to see just how far Sam has come over the years. Being a mommy is hard and I know first hand that it can feel really isolating sometimes. This post goes out to all the moms who are in the thick of the toddler years and who have a hard kid! Know that you’re not alone friend and that I promise it gets better.😘 •Link in bio• 📸 @katiebethlamb #dontmomalone #mommyblogger #momlife #toddlerhood #momblog #womensupportingwomen #lifestyleblogger #gratefulheart
I took this awesome girl to vote with me today and you better believe I seized the moment to explain how important it is to vote. She got to stand behind me while I casted my vote and watched how the whole process goes down, it was really cool! It’s hard for an almost 9 year old to grasp that this liberty we have is so precious but I know one day she will. 💗 #kidsarethefuture #nextgeneration #mygirl #girlmom #saturdaymorning #momblogger #smartgirl
Blogging away over here! I’ve got a new post in the works right now. I’m going to be opening up about some struggles I’ve had with my little guy, Sam. Not going to lie it’s pretty scary to be vulnerable on this space but it’s also really therapeutic for me. We have come so far with Sam and I hope that what we’ve been through with him can help another mommy with a hard kiddo! Be on the lookout and happy FriYAY friends!! 👀 • • • • • • • • • #gratefulheart #blogger #bloggerlife #bloggerstyle #momlife #momblogger #therapy #boymon #sittingroom
This is how we wake up on the weekends! All the kids jumping on us happy and ready to start their day. We have family snuggles for a good 30 minutes every Saturday and Sunday and it’s such a special time for our family. CJ and I know one day they won’t come bursting into our room on the weekends wanting snuggles and to wrestle so, we make sure to cherish every second of it! • • • • • • • • • #grateful #gratefulheart #momlife #momblogger #lifestyleblogger #happy #saturdaymorning
This boy is having the best time celebrating his friends birthday today! I love this age so much!
