It has been soo long since I have posted.  Having three kids was a game changer lol.  A great, busy, messy, would never go back game changer.  Going from two to three kids was our biggest transition yet.  In addition, Jovie our littlest, is a Tasmanian devil, tank, tornado, you could choose any of those words to describe her.  A constant mess in the making where ever she is.  Someone you always have to keep your eye on because she is eating something, or drinking something, or finding something that she is not supposed to have.  On top of having Jovie last year we had some big changes aka why I haven’t had time to post or do anything.  I will break it down.

October– Had Jovie- Travis is still teaching during the day and remodeling a fliphouse at night and on weekends

November– I get postpartum depression again:( (the worst thing in the world)- Travis gets fliphouse ready to sell.

December– We sell Flip House (YAY)-Kenna turns 4

January– We start finishing our basement at home- Emmy turns 2

February– We BUY a new home for us to move into-  Get our old house ready to sell- Sold our old house.  Start remodeling our new home.

March–  Trav spends day and night remodeling our new house-  Travis’s parents, my dad, the girls, and I move all of our stuff into the new house while Travis is at the first day of Baseball practice.  We live in our new home- that is not yet finished- waiting for counter tops because the company thought they ordered them 5 weeks ago, but they didn’t.

April– Baseball season is in full swing- trying to adjust to our new home- I turn 30- YAY

May– Still in full swing of baseball season- we miss daddy- our house is coming together

June– We did it- we survived baseball season- we survived our new home- Trav continues to finish up projects in our new home.  We go camping as a family!

July- Trav turns 31- we enjoy summer a little bit- continue to work on house projects- and we BUY ANOTHER FLIPHOUSE.

August– We start work on new fliphouse- wufta- we are crazy

September– Kenna starts 4k, Trav starts teaching again, still working on fliphouse on nights and weekends

October– Get fliphouse ready to sell- everyone is tired- Jovie turns 1-  WHAT a year we had with little Jovie- Sold three houses, moved, and remodeled our current home, and made it through a baseball season.  Sell fliphouse- YAY

November– Let’s just do nothing. Hunting, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday shopping

December– Kenna turns 5- how did that happen

January– Emmy turns 3- Girls complete swimming lesson

February– Trying to get things organized-baseball season starts next month

March– Trav and I go on a long over due trip to Mexico with some amazing friends- (can we go again please)   Trav starts baseball season

April- Baseball season is in full swing.

May– Still in baseball season mode.  We are having my sister’s wedding shower and rehearsal dinner at our house.  I work on lots of landscaping and cleaning- we host wedding shower

June- We host rehearsal dinner, celebrate my little sisters wedding- Road trip to Virginia for Trav’s brothers wedding- Celebrate Trav’s brothers wedding

I haven’t had a second to write a blog post and I really missed it. I love going back and reading what adventures we have been on and how much our little family has grown.  I hope to be writing more soon about my crazy clean eating diet, trying to run again, raising my little munchkins, and how to live just a little be more natural.  This last year and half was one to remember.  I don’t think I could have survived without Trav and my family.  I am truly blessed.

Here are just a couple of pictures from the last year-  I will post more of the remodel of our home in upcoming posts.

  1. Just read your post. Not only is your life busy but exciting – you will look back and treasure each memory. Your girls are beautiful. Jovie may be a tornado, but she is not happy little girl!
