Our First Month in Atlanta

All I can think when I think “Atlanta” is doggone Todd Packer from The Office…. 

So let’s get right down to it!

We don’t live IN Atlanta. We live in a northern suburb, and so far, we like it! We are currently in a 2-bedroom apartment, and we are in the process of maybe getting a house, but if that happens, I’ll let you know!

1. We bought a car.

It’s a Honda Accord. I don’t know what year it is, but it’s most definitely not brand new. It works just fine. And inside of it, we have a nice car seat from Diono. Alexander is actually pretty chill in the car, even though we were nervous about that. (Granted, we are only in the car 20-30 minutes MAX.)

What It Was Like Flying Alone With A Toddler



I have “only” one baby. I know there are mamas out there with twins who have flown alone. I know there are mamas out there with a baby and a toddler who’ve flown alone. But this is my experience! And I know this sort of post was extremely helpful for me before I flew this time with Alexander.

At the time of this flight, Alexander was 14.5 months old. I always find it silly to say “14.5″ instead of just “14″, but it does make it more relatable. So it stays!

The Last Day of My 20s

Tomorrow I turn 30 years old. So today is the last day of my 20s. I’m going to get CRAAAAZY. You just wait and see. So much crazy is going to happen today.

I’m going to the library to return some baby board books.

I’m going to the Metro to pick up my brother.

I’m going to Cameron’s office since it’s his last day there.

I’m probably going to pack some more.

I made TWO PIES from scratch. 

Told you.

Anyway, I wanted to share my 10 biggest moments from the last 10 years. [DISCLAIMER: These are just the 10 that I can remember. There are probably other "big moments" that I'm forgetting.]

Packing With Alexander Around

You’ve probably seen that meme that says something like this: Trying to clean when you have a toddler is like trying to brush your teeth while eating an Oreo. 

There’s another one that says “Trying to clean when you have a toddler is like trying to rake leaves during a windstorm.”

I like the second one better. That Oreo one puts a horrifying image in my head, and I have a terribly weak stomach.

“Trying to pack boxes when you have a toddler is like trying to load the dishwasher while people are still eating dinner.” Eh? Well… that doesn’t quite work. But you get the idea.

Taking a Break

Takinga Break

Hi guys!

I just want to let you know that, with all that’s going on, I am going to take a break from this blog. That doesn’t mean I won’t post at all for a while. It just means that I won’t post as regularly. I’ll post something as the need arises. If I have something to share, I will most definitely share it! And I love this little blog. 

I did start a new blog (blwideas.com), and even though it’s less than 2 months old, it already has more traffic than this one! And I’ve been HERE for over a year and a half! Haha. So I want to devote a little more time over there.
