Ever need an Internet hiatus?

So last week…was nuts. If you watch the news at all, you probably heard about the events that unfolded at Mizzou (where we live). If you haven’t, here’s the best, most balanced summary I’ve been able to come across. Suffice to say, the whole situation invokes a range of emotions and I find myself quite […]

September 2015 NASA Central at Kansas Speedway

I’ve come to the conclusion that Kansas Speedway is simply better than Gateway Motorsports Park as far as roval (oval tracks with turns inside the oval) track goes. And here is why… It does not have Gateway turn 1 and it does not have Gateway turn 7. That should automatically peak any driver’s interest that […]

Flying Solo

This was my first official weekend flying solo with Beeb. To date, neither of us have ventured out for more than a few hours without the other and the baby in tow, and frankly, we haven’t done much of that either. We also haven’t hired a babysitter or had a date night since November. New […]

4-11-2015 Gateway Motorsports Park with NASA Central Region

Gateway Motorsports Park with NASA Central Region kicked off the Kohler Racing 2015 season last weekend and despite some challenges actually GETTING to the track, the weekend was a huge success; for a few reasons. First, everyone came! Yup, that’s right, both Jes and our 8 month old KK came along for the weekend in […]

Baby’s first cold

Well, it finally happened. Despite my constant disinfecting, supplementing, hovering, and attempts to ward off potential illnesses with extra sleep and no life, our Beeb caught her first cold late last week. Getting ready for a walk around the neighborhood… I can say now with confidence, there is nothing more worrisome than having a sick […]

Happy New Year

My mind can not wrap around how different life is from this day last year. It was a year ago yesterday that we found out we were pregnant with Kaitlan. Pregnancy is a long process, but when you think about the fact that we’re here a year later with a complete and thriving little person. […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

I swear I am the biggest failed blogger. These weeks, they go SO FREAKING FAST. And it’s really not like there is something monumental happening every day, but every day is a little different, you know? My blog would be epically boring if I was a daily blogger, but there is definitely enough that I […]

10-11-2014 Heartland Park Topeka HPDE3/4

This past weekend I attended The National Auto Sport Association season closer at Heartland Park Topeka! This would be my 4th event of the year, and considering everything that has gone on in my life in 2014, that is pretty damn good! This was my first time to Heartland Park Topeka. I left Friday around […]

Kaitlan’s Birth Story (My Hypnobabies Birth)

I’ve read dozens of birth stories on blogs over the years and always wondered what mine would be, given the opportunity to become pregnant and deliver a child. I typed the whole thing out to my aunt and was surprised how short it was despite how long it was in duration. Maybe I’m just concise, […]

Our Kaitlan Marie

We are excited to announce that Kaitlan Marie joined our little zoo of a family on Sunday, August 17. She was 6 pounds 3.9 ounces and 18 inches long, with a head of soft blonde hair. She’s eating like a champ (cluster feeding is no joke!) and is growing a nice double chin and soft arms I […]
