Our Month In 9 Squares – August 2017

Dear August 2017,

WOW what a scorcher! With extremely high temps comes a lot of staying inside or pool time for this family! It was a slower month for us to regroup and focus on one another, sometimes uneventful is a nice time to recharge before the busy season hits.

September is going to bring a busy schedule and new exciting adventures. We are excited for what is to come and I am looking forward to football and Pumpkin Spice season!!!  How about you???

Our Month in 9 Squares – May 2017

Dear May 2017,

I guess time flies when you’re having fun! May, where did you go!?…  You brought the end of preschool and with it an excited heart that awaits the start of kindergarten… que mommy tears! We spent all month in swim lessons, so we are now ready for summer and official pool season!

We were blessed with family in town and some long overdue family fun!  And of course, who can forget Mother’s Day… I was spoiled by my loves.  I even got to break away for a mini staycation with my BFF for some much needed kid-free girl time, whoop-whoop!  As I look back on all of the fun times and memories that were made, I’m realizing that May 2017 completely exceeded my expectations!

June… You have some big shoes to fill, so let’s bring on the SUMMER fun!… and go easy on us with those triple digit temperatures!  #arizonaliving #thestruggleisreal

Swept Away with bObsweep PetHair

At this stage of life, toddler messes have become a fairly frequent visitor to our home.  Day after day, week after week, I find myself constantly sweeping the floors to keep the crumbs and messes minimized in the wake of our toddlers!  After considering the ridiculous amounts of time invested into sweeping, I thought I’d give one of those fancy robotic vacuums a try.  I decided to go with the bObsweep PetHair, because if it can handle pet hair, it can surely handle the messes of my kids!

Swept Away with bObsweep PetHair

Now don’t get me wrong, I was a little skeptical about a robotic vacuum, but the bObsweep PetHair, AKA Bob, swept away my fears. This vacuum has become a lifesaver for me as a mom with two small kiddos at home. Every day I have it cycle through the kitchen, family room, and play room to pick up all of their crumbs and messes from the kids meals and play dough adventures. It is easy to use and oh-so helpful, I can’t believe I didn’t get one sooner!

Our Month In 9 Squares – April 2017

Dear April 2017, 

April, you were such a great month, I struggled to pick only nine photos to showcase all of our adventures.  You are always my favorite month not only because of the fabulous weather, or because you are my birthday month, but because of Easter.  Holidays are so special and memorable now that we share them with two littles.

We also had so much fun traveling and enjoying the great outdoors on a Sedona getaway. As you can see from our photos, it will be hard to beat this month!

May… Bring on new adventures and more memories, we are ready for you!!

Our Month In 9 Squares – March 2017

Dear March 2017, 

What a fun month! March 2017… You were a month filled with fabulous weather, outdoor activities, lots of bubbles and wonderful memory-filled family time.  It was so much fun celebrating and party planning for my sweet little girl’s second birthday and of course we loved all of the fun that St.Patty’s, Spring Training and March Madness brought to the month.  With the welcoming of spring, we started working on spring cleaning and home projects, which always brings me so much joy!

As I gladly welcome April, I am ready for a month filled with more family adventures, continuous beautiful temps and of course my BIRTHDAY!  CHEERS to April!!!

Motherhood isn’t easy! …So why go it alone?

Arizona Mommy Blogger Photo Shoot

Finding mom friends that are in the same stage of life (i.e.. running around after littles), is the best way to get through this crazy season of life. Having mama friends that you can talk to about all of your real life day-to-day moments is not only important, but it is vital to your mama sanity! For that reason I am so thankful to have met some amazing local AZ mama bloggers to do life with. Continue Reading
