hello there, world

Well, hello there world!
I know, its been a while
I can't lie
I've been in a funk lately

getting up early to blog has been a major chore

night-time blogging has gotten trumped by snuggle/movie watching time with my hubby
no apologies for that one

but here I am
its a Monday morning
Elmo is occupying Haley
LeapFrog is occupying Aidan

so here I go

we've been getting some work done around here

take a good look at Aidan's hair, because it doesn't look like that anymore

walked up the stairs to find this one day
and I almost cried

we're going David Cassidy these days

so she wears it up

Pinterest won my heart this month

trying to be more healthy,
so I bought a bunch of Tilapia at Costco
and went on a hunt for recipes

cilantro, fresh ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, white wine, and jalepeno if you like it spicy
exact measurements here


perfect summer meal!
I've made this recipe three times
used it on fish, chicken, and steak
and I'm pretty sure I'm going to spike my salad with it next

won some dangly beauties 
from this beauty
Seriously, talk about beauty on the inside and out
Read her, I know you'll be blessed!
and check out her shop

Jason got invited to speak at one of the on-campus fellowships at Cal Poly 

preaching Jesus, who is worthy of all worship and praise

Koinonia Church retreat was a blast
the girls mastered the arts of big wheeling, hoola-hooping


and hair-taming in the dry climate


Summer is definitely in full swing
its been nothing but parks, play-dates, picnics, and lemonade



And last but not least
the Lord is doing some amazing work in my life, my marriage, my family, EVERYTHING
seriously, so excited to share about it in the future
God is so faithful, and I am just so blessed to be one of His children

see you next month!


  1. i'm excited to try that recipe because, i won't lie, i love fish, but never seem to find fun recipes. thanks for sharing!

    it seems like summer has barely started and you guys are already having so much fun!!

  2. i've missed your blogging!
    i was SO happy you won hannah's giveaway!

    i have the red, white, and blue ones too - earring twins :)

    i was dying to see aidan's after - i saw your insta and have yet to see it down, until now. she is a CUTE david cassidy. it isn't bad at ALL.
    but i chuckle with every pony shot you post. :)

    and look who else is rocking a pony these days - CRAZY GIRLS :)

  3. hi. i missed you. ok so. not much of a fish fan BUT you make me want to change that. this looks good. and i've heard that tilapia is not very fishy. which might be a winner.

    and they all do it at some point. kayla cut her bangs to her scalp when she was 4. still waiting on ashlyn to figure out that it's an option...

    thanks for linking up!
