week in the life 2015 : tuesday in the album

October 5, 2015

My Week in the Life album is coming together one day at a time. Here is what Tuesday looked like: For this day I used the 3×8 insert to include more photos, mostly of what I ate and then of the kids at my in-laws’ house in the evening. Just simple. I had fun coordinating colors. The left side of this page was all about taking the kids to daycare and dropping them off. The right side was about me getting settled in at home for my day off. I thought the “there is no place like home” card was perfect because I absolutely LOVE being home. It’s my happy place. And this day I got to be there all…

week in the life 2015 : monday in the album

September 24, 2015

I’m excited to start sharing with you my completed Week in the Life album. I’ve made a lot of progress and hopefully I’ll be finished with the whole thing within a month! For my album, I used mostly Ali’s kit. Here you see the title page, on which I decided to just play with paper. I think it’s cute. :) Before we got into the details of the week, I wanted to briefly give some info about each of us. I basically just wrote our ages and what we’re into right now off the top of my head. I love the transparent dividers that came with the kit since I preordered. For the beginning of each day I decided to…

week in the life 2015 : sunday photos & words

August 24, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Sunday, again, I did not want to wake up. Liam forced me to get out of bed around 7, but Meredith kept sleeping. Obviously my camera does not do well in low light, but I wanted to show her all cuddled up in my bed. I made some coffee and we played for a little bit. Liam actually had worn PJ’s but I took them off after changing his diaper. I needed to start working on some chores since I was still behind from yesterday, so I turned on the TV…

week in the life 2015 : saturday photos & words

August 23, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Saturday I really did not want to get out of bed. Both kids had slept with me all night so I woke up to them crawling on me. At a certain point I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I think we got up around 6:30 a.m. Our plans for the day included going to the bay to fish and play on the beach. We were just going to head out as soon as we had breakfast and packed up, no real rush. While I was making breakfast, Liam found my hand weights…

week in the life 2015 : friday photos & words

August 22, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… A rough night and not the best morning. I’m feeling a bit discouraged about the whole sleeping situation. Meredith woke up multiple times during the night; at midnight she began crawling out of bed. I asked her if she had to go potty but she said no and started crying, “I don’t want to go to bed!” I told her it was the middle of the night but if she wanted to go play by herself then she could, but I was going back to sleep. She went back to sleep….
