collectedblog This yard used to be a jungle. Where we are sitting was once a pet cemetery! We worked hard to get this yard in shape, so nothing makes me happier than dining under the lights with good friends! 13h

collectedblog So proud of this guy and the whole @goingbeyondborders board. Tonight they raised enough money to create a perpetual scholarship for single parents in our area. I love this because my Mom was once a single mom who relied on scholarships to get her through school. She's amazing! And special thanks to @thebeyoutybureau for glamming me up and making me feel great! 5d

collectedblog Since she was about 4 months old, this one decided she liked to eat and then be laid down in her crib to fall asleep on her own. And while that has been SO nice I can't say I haven't sometimes missed all the snuggles that I had with the other two. So today when I could tell she was tired even though she had just woken up, I selfishly spent 20 minutes trying to get her to sleep in my bed. And right as she was finally about to sleep all nestled next to me, she sat straight up and laid back down so that she was perpendicular to me. But at least we're in proximity to each other I guess. I mean her foot IS touching me. I'll take it! 1w
  •   jessswenson I just adore that squish! I always try to get my boys to nap in my bed. Kenny usually begs with two extra large tears for me to carry him to his bed and pj just gets hyper and smacks my nose. 1w

  •   sarahjlarsen This is the same as Ivan! He is SO good at going to bed on his own, and I love it that way, but I have truly done the same thing trying to get him to snug in my bed! Sometimes if I'm lucky, I get a morning love in my bed while he sucks his thumb. 1w

collectedblog I won tickets to the symphony from @byjillee so I took my sister. She's usually behind the scenes watching my kids so going out together was so fun! Even if she asked me what the guy waving his hands was called. 2w

collectedblog I was so spoiled this birthday weekend. @thebeyoutybureau planned the most perfect day on Friday. Shopping and a surprise dinner with some of my favorite friends. Then we spent a night in Park City (my first night away from Arden!!). @adamkwebb also came home for the weekend! Tonight we celebrated with cupcakes. I had the best helpers assist in blowing out the candles. 29 is already shaping up to be pretty great! 2w

collectedblog I just picked up Arden's dresser from the refinishers. I pulled out this thrifted embroidered piece I got from @sarahjlarsen before Arden was even born. On it are the words to "America the Beautiful" which feels extra fitting for today. "America, America, God shed his grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea." 3w
