dad’s day weekend!

I hope your weekend was as low-key and fabulous as ours. Mother nature finally blessed us with some hot weather and it was perfect for a weekend in the city and taking advantage of being outside. We haven’t been in the city on a weekend in 4 weeks, so this was the perfect treat. We kicked off the weekend with two birthday parties for Thomas and Zoe’s friends, one was.. Read More

weeknight beach picnic

Nothing like a weeknight-beachfront-picnic hang to help us start checking off our bucket list. The hubs had a work dinner, the weather was warm but not too hot and I was in the mood to hang by the beach.  I picked up T & Z from our nanny with pizza in hand and headed straight to the shores of Lake Ontario. Thomas loves a good picnic and Zoe, well she.. Read More

mini-wheat summa-time bucket list

First things first, thanks for being patient during my lapse in posts…. between starting a new job, interviewing nannies and daycares, and a celebrating babies and birthdays I have had literally zero hours left in the day to blog or even paint my toes. We are only a few weeks into summer and yet I feel like it’s slipping through our fingers so we decided to rein in the anxiety and.. Read More

mini-wheat mama travels

Whew! It’s been a very busy few weeks. We were so busy that we didn’t spend a single weekend in May at our own house. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned in past posts, we love Charlottesville, VA. We went to school there, we met there, we own a house there, we have tons of friends there, and so we travel there as often as we can. Since I work from home.. Read More

Mothers Day Kisses & Disses

Mothers Day weekend was great for a few reasons, but mainly because we got to spend it with my family. We had a big family brunch for Mothers Day, like 19 people big and it was just perfect. It was loud, it was tasty and it was the victim of my Aunt’s new selfie stick!    Mothers Day was perfect, because I get to be the Mama of these two.. Read More
