I Heart Faces | Everyday Life

Now, THIS is my kind of photo contest!! My whole life in photos is “Everyday Life” so I knew I just had to enter this month’s photo challenge. Both of the younger kids love blowing on the mist that comes out of our oil diffuser, and I just so happened to bust Lucy jumping in it this morning.


If you take pictures of your kids doing everyday things, this is the perfect month to join the challenge!

While we’re on the subject of I Heart Faces, I wanted to take a quick moment to explain why you haven’t been seeing me around there this year. After much thought and consideration and prayer, I decided to take this year off from being a member of the amazing Creative Team to focus on our family {namely, Emma’s epilepsy changes and issues}. Angie and Amy so graciously and without hesitation told me to take as much time as I needed. I miss being on the team, but I’m so thankful for social media so I can still keep up with everyone.

Lunch with Emma and Lucy {week 10}


The week of Halloween was absolutely crazy because Emma had Spirit Week at school, and every day was something different. And then Lucy had a parade and party at her school. And then, of course, Halloween itself was insane. So I was lucky to throw together a few lunches for the girls that week.

I did let Emma buy lunch on Monday due to little kid sickness in the house.


Emma had half a banana decorated with LaLaLoopsy stickers, celery with almond butter in a panda cup, pocket sandwiches with almond butter in a jumbo silicone cup and cinnamon apple straws packed in a Good Lunch Box.

Sadly, Lucy was sick and had to miss her whole Halloween costume parade and party at preschool.

Emma had veggie straws, an almond butter mummy sandwich with candy eyes, a ghost hard-boiled egg in a rectangle silicone cup, edamame and raisins with orange m&m’s packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

Lunch with Emma and Lucy {weeks 8 and 9}


Oh man, I am so far behind on posting our lunches. I don’t know about you, but these past couple of weeks have been crazy busy with Halloween costume prep, parties, birthdays and activities galore!

I only made two lunches the week of Oct 13-17 because they had fall break for 2 days and Emma’s school festival one day, but I only took a picture of Lucy’s lunch. See? I told you these past few weeks had been crazy.


Lucy had a koala jelly sandwich, pretzel sticks, lettuce and tomatoes with ranch dressing in a little panda cup, and cut-up watermelon with a bear pick packed in an Easy Lunchbox.

The following week started COGAT testing for Emma, so I tried to give her some treats here and there throughout the week.

I Heart Faces | Pets

Since we lost our sweet dog Macey a few months ago, I was worried about not having a photo to share. And then this guy hung out with me on the beach for about 20 minutes one morning this past weekend. So I adopted him.

His name is Pete.
