thebusybudgetingmama Took these two to Costco today to scout out party desserts/food for our @happymommybox Anniversary Party. Looks like all love but 4 seconds later biting faces happened. Micah thinks he is a lion. And hilarious. Hug it out you two. 6h

thebusybudgetingmama Micah went down for his nap and I needed a thirty minute break before I jumped back into mom work. Made this DIY wreath I've been wanting to do all week! Gonna add some more fall details. I think it needs a black and white strip ribbon! I love that it's changeable since it's all done with floral pins! Gonna take down the yellow flowers for Christmas! I love moss wreaths and how fast and easy this came together! 16h

thebusybudgetingmama Yesterday, all Micah's dreams came true for a hot second. It was crazy giggle town when he sat back there. #funsover #straphimdown #shoplikeyoureonagameshow 2d
  •   annelisepierce This whole scene just makes me happy. 2d
  •   thelightblonde Haha you're pretty brave!!! 2d
  •   michelle_worley Yup. It usually lasts about 47 seconds for us! If he's not standing up every 5 seconds he's opening everything in sight 2d
  •   littlepilgrims Shop like you're on a game show!! Hahahaha!!! So true. 2d
  •   hannahbethwhalen So advice momma: how do you keep Micah happy for long shopping trips? Mine first little is 2.5 and he's a fiercely wild one and wants all the adventure of the store, which is hard when there's real shopping to do. We've tried snacks, books and looking at the wonders of the store....thoughts ideas? 1d

thebusybudgetingmama Editing phone photos from our trip this weekend. I seriously love Micah's age. He is so sweet and communicates so cute. He will be 2 in November.. I took him down the birthday party aisle at Walmart today.. He was loving cars, balls and monkeys. We'll figure it out haha. He started calling Sophia, Fia and says I love you before bed now. Heart bursting. @blesnefsky is pretty cute too 2d
  •   hooversnextgen I can't take it! His cuteness is too much!! Kingston is 15 months old and I really do love this whole phase. He loves him some yeya "Leilla" haha, and gives her sloppy open mouth kisses, she loves them. 2d
  •   erin0104 @thebusybudgetingmama my youngest will be 2 in November as well. Such a sweet sweet funny age. 2d
  •   littlepilgrims Two is my fave! It's vastly underrated. I could eat my two-year-old up right old! Still a baby, but can tell you what's in their head. (Kind of). Makes for sweet, hilarious moments. 2d
  •   keri1786 Circus theme was the first thing that came to mind that could incorporate those three things @thebusybudgetingmama Whatever you think of, I know it will be creative! 2d
  •   kristinstew 1-2 was my fave age so far! 2.5 has so much attitude! 2d
  •   mrsnettles89 My son is just a little bit younger, and oh man I have to agree! This is such a crazy precious age!! 2d
  •   ciaomarezy My twin boys are two and I often find myself wishing I could bottle this stage up in all of its adorableness! 2d
  •   thomascmusic @blesnefsky is my hero. 2d

  •   dianafrankphoto Too funny! 3d
  •   michelle_worley I've been following you for awhile and haven't shared yet that I also have a son named Micah (4 years) just because I see people do it all the time to perfect strangers and I always feel like the person is thinking "yeah so?" LOL. But this is EXACTLY how my Micah acts everywhere we go and so it seemed a fitting time to share what we have in common #mustbethename #outgoingpersonalities I love following you and your littles btw! @thebusybudgetingmama 3d
  •   newburnmum Glimpse into the future 3d
  •   deonnawade My son tells every random person I see hi and I love that it makes them smile every time! 3d

thebusybudgetingmama We're fans of the wedding reception photo both...Such a fun night in Pittsburgh at the Heinz History Museum celebrating Kristin + Ryan! 5d
  •   contemporarydomestics It was just so funny, because I kept thinking, that girl looks so familiar... And then as soon as we left and I saw your IG post, it clicked! It was nice to (kind of) meet you in person, I've been following you for awhile! Your son was adorable... Mine is ALWAYS a wild man!!! 5d
  •   lizardloo @thebusybudgetingmama yep that's Jonathan! So weird :) 4d
  •   thebusybudgetingmama @contemporarydomestics nice to "meet" you too ️ how do you guys like st Bonnie's? 3d
  •   thebusybudgetingmama @lizardloo haha small world!! 3d
  •   contemporarydomestics We like it! We've been members for a couple of years now. We live nearby. Were you guys members when you lived here, or were you just attending mass while in town? 3d
  •   blesnefsky @contemporarydomestics I was the youth minister there for 7 years and @thebusybudgetingmama ran Ccd for 3 years. my good friend Dave van vickle is the director of evangelization there. We love fr John! We drove from Ohio to say hi to him and some other people from Bonnie's. 3d
  •   contemporarydomestics That's awesome @blesnefsky and @thebusybudgetingmama, I had no idea! We also love father John! I'm pretty sure I know Dave too. Is he the younger guy with 3 or 4 kids? I'm originally from Maine and my husband is from this area, so our son was baptized elsewhere before we were members, but our daughter will be baptized there soon! 3d
  •   blesnefsky @contemporarydomestics that's great! Yea that's him. You guys should meet his family. 3d

thebusybudgetingmama Another photo from the random student photographer who offered us family photos while we visited our old campus! Sophia was SOO interested in hearing how mommy and daddy fell in love there. ️ We went to the library where we first saw each other. Micah screamed and everyone looked. Photo op was postponed. Then we went to the gym where he first came up to me and said "I see you all over campus I gotta know your name." Sophia "soo.. Were you like staring at each other and then walked to each other??" Then she did a real life emoji face- She loves love. It was fun being back there with Ben and our crew! @blesnefsky 6d
