Come Follow Me @ DreamUp Studios


What would you think if I told you that tomorrow you were going to wake up and be responsible for two teenagers and two toddlers, all at the same time, all under the same roof? Nuts? Perhaps that would have been my response too, until I lived it. Combing Anthony's children with mine has been one of … [Read more...]

The last place I sat


Today while my kids where being oohed and aahed over at someone else's house I got out and ran errands because running errands is a lot easier sans kids. On my way back home I got stuck in traffic. I could see it, stuck there in traffic. I could see the sign. I could see the building. It was … [Read more...]

I got my hair did y’all


Less than a month till baby comes!! I've done several things this week to get prepared like seeing my obgyn, getting my teeth cleaned and thinking about packing my hospital bag, but my favorite thing was what I did with my hair.

Two under two, here we come!


Anyone notice that large gap between my last post and the one before it? It wasn't because I was lazy, though I am. It wasn't because my life is boring, though it is.

One of the recurring questions I've been getting is, "where can I buy these colors?" The simple answer is … [Read more...]

Six moths old today


Madeline, my dear sweet baby girl. If only my heart could form words instead of my mind, this would come out more accurately and articulate. That is, if the words my heart could speak weren't above all those in existence, which they probably are. You, my miracle, fill the world with such light and … [Read more...]

Madie’s Nursery


Hipster fox. That's the theme I choose for Madeline's nursery. I also wanted it to be girly so I added pink and a pretty green and blue. I think it came together beautifully. It looks better in person than in my crappy photos but here is a peak. I'm 31 weeks along now. I'm feeling pretty … [Read more...]

Buying Baby Girl Clothes

color palette | green, pink, purple |

Hubs and I got married 7 1/2 years ago. We knew we wanted kids; I wanted 6 kids and he wanted 4. We wanted some of each gender. We shopped in advance, mostly for girl clothes cause they are the cutest. Turns out we shopped WAY in advance. A couple years ago I thought all those baby girl clothes … [Read more...]

New color scheme for DreamUp Studios

I played around with my website design (for DreamUp Studios, my graphic and web design business), just for fun. I did a couple things that were awful and then I did something that I liked. I liked it a … [Read more...]
