Hello? Is anyone still here?

And here we are....almost one full year later. Wow. Unintentional blogging break much?

Instead of trying to recap this past year (ha!), I think I'll just move on. How about a Top Five Wednesday list?! Yes? Great!!

1. Loving my new life planner from Erin Condren. I take it out several times a day, just to tell it that it's pretty & pet it a little bit.

2. Enjoying fresh sheets & a freshly washed quilt to snuggle me & my babies in.

3. Hoping to organize my office a little more in the next few weeks. {And then cross off some To-do's in the planner!! I like where this is going.}

4. Wishing I could fall asleep before 2 AM. Seriously - what's the deal??!

5. Smiling about my kids at school this week. They say the cutest things. I love being a SAHM & a part, part time teacher. Best of both worlds. <3

Well, there you have it. A little peek into my world at the moment. Will I be able to keep up a consistent blogging cycle? We'll see. This somewhat overwhelmed mama makes no such promises these days. I only promise to love, feed, wash, & play with the kiddos these days. So far that's working out. :)

3rd Birthday Party

This past weekend we celebrated my favorite girl turning three. 3!!! How did that happen??!! I'm so very proud of her & the little girl she is becoming. She's so thoughtful, behaves very well {most of the time} :) & is becoming very cuddly. She's expanding her vocabulary daily & has me laughing a good portion of each day. I just absolutely love her to pieces....

This year we had a 'cupcakes & polka dots with Eloise' party. It was Ohhh so fun. We had family & 4 of Eloise's little girlfriends & their families over - what a ball. Here are a few pictures from the event.

37 & 21

A little over 3 years ago, Amanda & I were in a very similar situation to what we are in today. A little over 3 years ago, we were both pregnant with our little girls - & we took a pic to document our bellies. Tonight, we took another pic - except this time it was to document our boys. Amanda is currently 37 weeks preggo & I am as of today, 21 weeks preggo.

Want to know some other useless trivia? We were four months apart with our pregnancies with the girls & we are four months apart pregnant with our boys. How's that for timing??!! (I promise it was unintentional timing). :). It turned out that our girls are only 3 months apart, however, as Miss Sophia made her entrance a week late & Miss Eloise made hers 3 weeks early. Will these boys do the same? Time will tell....(but I'm guessing Miss Amanda really, really hopes not).

20 Weeks

Today I had an ultrasound for my 18 week appointment. During the ultrasound, my doctor confirmed what we had already been told - Mr. Finn is measuring ahead 9 - 10 days. So, because Eloise came 3 weeks early, my doctor decided to make it official & move my due date up to July 19th - which also happens to be Auntie Laura's Birthday. I guess I know what I'm getting her for a preset this year....

Amanda's Baby Shower

My Amanda M Pants is also pregnant. Her baby boy is due March 29th... so this past Sunday we threw a shower to honor her & sweet little Henry Parker. Here are some of the pics & highlights of the event:

The drinks, cupcakes, & party favors.

A closer look at the cupcakes. The frosting almost did me in the morning of the shower. Thankfully, my mother-in-law came to my rescue & of course adding a little mustache here & there is always good.

The food spread {minus the quiche}

My Amanda Pants & some of the party guests.

It was really a wonderful afternoon of celebrating her & her sweet coming baby. What a great way to begin the week!

You May Already Know This....

...but in case you haven't already heard - I'm pregnant!! With a baby BOY!

Eloise is thrilled to be a big sister:

What you probably don't already know is that we have a name for him. Finnley Tilson Adams 'Finn' will be arriving sometime in July. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

And with this post - I hope to be officially back to the blogging world. We'll see. Thanks for putting up with my hit or MISS posts...

Is Anybody There???!

Hello, again. This is a bit embarrassing - with the over a month gap in my posts this time, I'm not even sure where to begin....

We've been busy? I have fallen off of the blog bandwagon? I still love my blog, but forget about it? Yep, yep, & yeppers. I will really try to keep updating from time to time - as I do love to blog - but apparently I don't take photos anymore. And when I do, I apparently don't blog them anymore. :) Ah well, we do the best we can, right?

Here is a photo of me & E on our first day of school:

Here is E this summer riding horses with Grandma GG.

Here she is riding a wooden horse at Grammy Faith's house:

And just for fun, here's a pic of a very happy E at dinner one night.

Who knows, maybe I'll even do another post sometime'd better stay tuned....just in case.
