Going To "Ooh Aah Point"

So I'm just browsing through my Easter pictures and came across this. 

I feel like this is the perfect summary for my life with kids. I wanted a picture for normal blogging purposes showing off my stellar aunt capabilities and I end up with this. Me dragging a two year old across the floor while grinding my teeth in hopes that she will smile at the camera instead of suck on the bubble wand that's hanging around her neck. Did it work you ask? 

Well, we are still looking at a toddler trying to escape the death grip of her aunt, so no..not really. Anyhow, more Easter pictures to come soon. As you can tell, they are bound to be beautiful and full of love. 

In other news, I've been thinking lately about how bloggers should have an award show. And not really to say this blogger is better than that blogger, but more so for a chance to all come together, drink champagne in pretty dresses, and take pictures for Twitter that will go viral. Buuuuuut...if we were going to give out awards, I have a nomination to make. This award is called "I try not to hate her for all of the travel that she does, but it's hard not to." And the winner is.....

That would be Nicole from Treasure Tromp if you don't know how to read [which is totally cool, I'm not judging but I suppose it wouldn't matter because you have no idea what I am saying right now]. So why the nomination you ask? THIS. Don't worry, my jaw dropped too. Hero status she is. I have had the pleasure of real life talking [as opposed to typing] to Nicole and she is as smart, beautiful, and kind as she appears to be. Her blog is legit and she knows how to produce quality content that we could all benefit from reading...whether that be for those of us on a budget, or those of us who need to know how to make a mini apple pie, or those of us who are in desperate need of actually finding a blogger who likes to drink wine ;)

Or maybe you just want somebody you can go with to "ooh ahh point". Turns out Nicole is your girl.

All of this to say, read her blog + connect with her on social media + get her to like you enough to invite you on a vacation + and then enter to win this $20 Amazon gift card that she is giving away. You'll need it to buy a new swimsuit or something for your trip.



  1. I love how in the second picture you have your camera ready smile. Thanks for keeping it real

  2. I have the same picture struggles with my nephews! Hope you had a good Easter :)

  3. Hahah love it... kids can be tough my child always throws up the peace sign or some weird kid gang sign Im not exactly sure... either way our pictures are never picture perfect!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
