Around These Parts

It's been pretty low-key around here these past few weeks. This season of our lives is home-based and I'm okay with that. I know there will be times in the future where we're running from event to event and I'm wishing for a quiet day where we watch Robin Hood again and are trapped by different nap schedules. 

One of our big go-tos for lunch is egg salad. It never disappoints and everyone gobbles it up. All of or kids love pickles and mustard, so it's perfect. I put dill relish in it to give it a little kick. 

Yum. Of course, it takes a half-dozen eggs to feed us, so I can't imagine what it will be like in a few years. With three boys, we're definitely going to be keeping that Costco membership. 

If you follow me on Instagram you know we had a tornado warning last week at 3:45 in the morning. So we all traipsed downstairs and jammed into the interior storage space. To say it was tight was an understatement. Luckily there were no tornados, but the wind kept me up most of the rest of the night. 

It also inspired me to clean up that space because we had to throw a bunch of junk out into the family room to fit everyone inside. 

My babies are rapidly becoming little boys. Ian especially has started playing on his knees and for some reason to me, this makes him look less like a little baby. 

Pretty soon all of our guys will be running around and it will be quite chaotic. I'm already breaking up an average of one fight every 15 minutes. Crazy, but true! 


  1. I wish I liked pickle-ish stuff, so I could get more into _____ salad sandwiches. I agree, being trapped by a nap schedule is so hard, but it'll be gone in the blink of an eye. We are just so stuck in the thick of it right now.

    1. We are a pickle loving group over here! And I totally agree with being in the thick of it. It's so demanding but soon we'll be wishing for that time back.
