The Important Things in Life

Why is change so hard for us to accept while everything around us is doing so?  Here at the Nest we are facing some changes that are exciting yet a little scary, too, and I want to keep you up to date! Back when I started part time at Anthropologie as a sales associate, I fell in love with the atmosphere of the store and the company I was working for.  URBN treats their employees extremely well, with lots of perks and surprisingly well compensation for the retail world.  As I moved up the  ...

Our Texas Trip

Last week we got back from a long weekend in Texas with family.  We made some good memories playing with cousins, visiting great grandma and grandpa, hanging out with aunts and uncles, and winning over the hearts of “Ama and Papa” (although I’m sure their hearts have already been won!).  I always come home reminded that Boise is now where I belong but with a little ache and hole in the heart for the friends and family left behind in the South!    We  ...

8 Months

I looked at the calendar and realized I was two days past the 27th which gave me quite a bit of mom-guilt for letting that special day pass by.  Aside from the usual nitty-gritty, HARD WORK that any baby normally is, Lucy has been SO much fun lately.  She’s waving, babbling away, singing, eating lots and lots of real food, and smiling from ear to ear.  She still doesn’t love green beans (who does?!) but the girl can  ...

Christmas Eve Eve Eve

Tonight we did a little Christmas Eve-ing since I work the actual Christmas Eve day; we looked at Christmas lights, opened up one preview gift each and got our new Christmas jammies.  All enjoyed the festivities except for the star of the show, Lou.  I was so excited to start the traditions with her but bedtime called and honestly, it’s not worth keeping a sleepy baby awake, is it?!  The one gift each that Chase and I opened were from my parents and honestly, I’m  ...
