Summers over and school has just begun!

I can’t believe the summer is over! I just dropped my oldest off on her first day of first grade and even though it feels like summer shouldn’t be over I am feeling ready for school to begin!

We had a packed summer full of camping, working on the house, being lazy and getting our craft on. I of course didn’t write about any of it but now I’m feeling like sitting down and getting to it!

Hope you all had a great summer! Kind of excited for sweater and boot weather!

Getting ready to remodel!

And so it begins!

In January we (us and my parents) purchased the house we have been renting for almost 11 years! We are going to update the house and convert the garage into a bedroom with bathroom. We are thinking that we will either sell the house, rent it out or maybe live in it a bit longer once everything is done, depending on the housing market at that time but that is a ways out so for now we are just focusing on the remodel.  Continue reading

Nehalem Bay Camping in the Pacific NW

Pacific NW style… Prepare for rain and be happy if it doesn’t! 🙂

Camping

I spent weeks preparing for camping. Shopping, food prep, laundry, packing and more packing. I’m starting to feel like all the prep for only 2 nights of camping is not enough time camping! My body on the other hand is definitely ready to sleep in my own bed after two nights on the air mattress with a wiggly teething toddler. That being said it did not rain (whoot!) and we had a blast!

A little bit about me

Hello!

I’m Sarah, I thought that I would introduce myself for people that don’t already know me. I live in Portland Oregon and have my whole life. I have been married to my best friend Mike since 2007, we started dating when we were 18/19 and have been together ever since. We have three great kids, Lilly who is energetic and so sweet is four and a half. Mia, who currently is mid her terrible twos and shows it but is also very fun is two and a half. Lastly we have my amazing baby Carver! he is 9 months old and is the best babe ever!

My house is a bit wild, with kids every where, stuff everywhere, a big dog, a fluffy cat and usually some sort of project or craft that I am attempting to do taking over part of the kitchen. I love to cook, garden, read, crochet, sew, make jewelry, I’m newly taking a ceramics class and am pretty much interested in any sort of craft. I love traveling around Portland and have my favorite places to go but am also trying to expand my repertoire (said in fancy accent) and try some new stuff.

I’ve been interested in starting a blog for a while but have been busy having babies, now that they are a bit older I’m thinking I might be able to get it together. Plus I have a lot of fun doing what we do and would love to inspire others to get creative too!

That’s it for now but I’m sure there’s more!
