The Watson Pizza Scandal of 2017

Do you ever have those moments in marriage that you know you’re still going to be talking about in 20 years?   You know what I mean - those little “tiffs” that are so absurd you wonder why you’re even “arguing” about whatever it is in the first place, but you can’t seem to let it go?    If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you are either not married or you’re still a newlywed.   For everyone else, let’s talk about what Eric and I are dubbing as the “Watson Pizza Scandal of 2017.” It all started on Saturday night when we decided to chill out at home and make some homemade pizza after a day of swimming.   We had five personal pizzas.   Eli’s was cheese, Ellie and I had supreme, and Eric made his a supreme minus onions because he HATES onions.   He also made an extra pizza to keep for lunch on Sunday…such a smart move!

After a day in the water and playing super heroes, we had homemade pizza for dinner and now have

Playing Catchup

Hi, ya’ll!   It has been a way too long since I have popped in with a little update on this blog, and I have to confess the reason why.   I’ve really struggled with what my little corner of the internet should look like. Should it be surface-level and filled with fun highlights or should it be a journal echoing the thoughts of my heart?   I couldn’t really make it fit into either box, but the truth is that I miss blogging so much. I miss documenting the little moments of our lives.   I have never once regretted all the writing I did in those early years of parenting, and I want to continue keeping track of the memories both large and small.   I guess moving forward this blog will be a mixture of both the mundane and the exciting.   It will be both topical and personal.   It will be a hodgepodge of life as it comes and whatever I feel like sharing at the moment.   It might be consistent or it might be sporadic.   I have no idea.   I just know that I want to preserve thes
