Creating Memories

Holiday season is just around the corner and so is the hustle and bustle. I love this time of year,  jeans and cozy sweatshirts followed by friends and family over for a bonfire- now that’s ideal for me.


Brody is about 3 ½ months old and I really want to take him to a pumpkin patch, pick out a pumpkin and decorate it with him. I know he’ll have no recollection of this but I want to start creating traditions and memories now. Is that silly? Can anyone recommend a good pumpkin patch? To be honest I’ve always gone to Hy-Vee so this is new to me too!

This weekend is going to be filled with another new memory for Brody. His first family wedding! My brother Nick and his fiancé Niki are getting married this weekend. I can’t wait for Brody to meet his aunts, second cousins and family friends- it’s going to be such a fun and wonderful occasion. There are a lot of people traveling into town for the wedding so we will be opening up our home to some great guests. We’ll have an active household with two little boys drooling all over the place- perfection ;).  It will be so fun to show him off, dress him in a tux and dance with him on the dance floor. And to top it off my sister-in-law to-be asked me to be a bridesmaid I am honored to be a part of their day! The weekend festivities can’t come soon enough.
