I don't

Emily TuckerComment

I don’t…

Treat Hayden like she's the first kid

Eat eggs or much chocolate, other than reeses or pretzel crack

Like to drive around town, I would much rather drive far or just walk

Wash my hair more than 1-2x a week

Always utilize my time wisely

Always get it right

Put myself out there enough, I'm truly a homebody & introvert so its hard for me to remember to plan to  do things with people even though I always want to

Like having to be decisive about food options

Know how anyone can live without caffeine or bacon

Always like how I view myself as a person but I do love that I have a really strong body image & always have, I may be more fit now but I haven't always been

Know how single moms do it all & am so proud to be raised by one

Put many restrictions on what I eat & when, for me moderation & portion control are key plus some fab workouts

Get much sleep during the last few months of pregnancy, due to heartburn & freakish nesting

Ever really wear red unless its in a print

Have any clue what we are naming little man & its seriously frustrating me

Ever know what to do with my hair

How about you? What are your don’ts?

Hey! It's May!!

Calendar by Caroline Johansson

What's up?

-My first Mother's day with baby-out-of-body :)

-My 25th birthday!!! I know I'm not that old but I really do like getting older minus the new lines on my forehead and don't try to tell me they aren't there... I'm thinking about making a list of goals for my next year of life- maybe give me some inspired ideas 

-Hardcore planning the little lady's first birthday party

-Tossing around some new ideas for our women's book club for this summer but we have locked down this book as our choice

Happy April

Hey its April! How did that happen?

Check out that cute computer background 

What's up?

-Unfortunately its been a little slow around here (in blogger-land) but hopefully thats due to it being really busy (in real life). Also I've been taking a lot of thoughtful thinking time about the direction and content of  this little blog & shop.

-I have an almost 9 month old :( and only 3 months to plan a fabulous 1st birthday par-tay.. Theme decided and a few details too but its time to get workin'. She's getting too big and less baby-like!

-Church Garage & Bake sale and Homeschool conference all in one day- should be interesting to see how I juggle that one ;)

-April 28th I'm hosting an (in)RL meet-up at our home and I'm super excited to fellowship, watch the speakers, snack and party with new and old friends. 

Busy month but lots of fun ahead!
