I confess…I totally want to be a soccer mom. Arden’s season is underway and she is really into it. I fully expected her to be in la-la land–singing and dancing instead of going after the ball…but boy was I wrong. She scored six goals (yes, six…ha!!) at her last game and this was how she would celebrate each one. If there’d been an award for enthusiasm, I think she would’ve won that too 🙂
I confess…being on TV wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. I got the opportunity to represent the Kansas City Moms Blog on Better KC a couple of days ago…and even though I was crazy nervous, I actually had a lot of fun! You can see my 3 minutes of “fame” here if you’d like 😉 My dad watched the kids while I was gone and he said that Nash completely melted down when my segment ended, so they had to keep rewinding to make him happy. Sweet little mama’s boy!! Ha!
I confess…I’m excited to spend my Friday night painting shiplap. Poor Chris. I don’t think he knows that after we’re done I’m going to want to shiplap the whole darn house.
I confess…Chick-fil-A employees are starting to recognize my kids in public…and vice versa. I’m not sure whether I should be embarrassed or proud!
I confess…I might’ve mumbled a few obscenities when I discovered this mess the other day. While I was making dinner, Nash apparently thought it would be a good idea to rip the wick off of an unlit candle and jam it in between my white couch cushions. Thank goodness for 5-year protection plans!
I confess…this is why I’m always late to preschool pickup. I mean, how on earth are you supposed to wake this?!?!
I confess…we don’t eat out a whole lot, but when we do my vote is always for Mexican. My mom is the same way and I’m pretty sure this girl will be too. She sure can dominate a bowl of queso!
On a non-confessional note…happy 31st to this handsome dude! I was trying to figure out how many of his birthdays we’d spent together (it’s ten!) when I came across this picture from our first date party together. Oh college!
Ten years later and he’s still my favorite. Happy Birthday, Chris!
Love your confessions. I would have said a few words if I’d found that on my couch too. Gosh darn kids. He looks so sweet sleeping in his crib. Aww! We love Mexican food too and that’s where we usually go out to eat too.
I love Arden’s excitement! Mexican food is our favorite too, and it looks like you guys haven’t aged a day in ten years!
You haven’t aged at all in 10 years!!! And yes, ship lap everything!!! And OMG I would have muttered some obscenities too if I found my couch like that!!!
You were just the cutest thing on that news clip! Also, shiplap makes me so happy!! I’ve been begging and hinting to my husband that we need to do our entire kitchen/living room area 🙂 He just laughs, but I’m SO serious lol!

Love your TV segment…you look fabulous! Oh…and Mexican food! I could live off of it. Well, and cake. Mexican food & cake! 🙂

Happy birthday to Chris! You two have barely aged in 10 years, and I think the 30s suit you both very well! And…a neighbor’s birthday calls for a neighborhood party, yes?? Perhaps with Mexican and margs! Get on that, friend. And Arden and her SIX soccer goals?! Go Arden!!!
You did awesome on your segment! So neat to kinda see ya in real life! And your dress, SO CUTE!
The couch!! Hahaha omg I would be so mad!
What is it about candle wicks?! Reid goes straight for them too! You were great on that tv segment! Bravo!!
Happy Birthday to Chris. Hope you guys have fun celebrating! I watched your TV clip and you did awesome. I really liked your tips, and you looked adorable too. I’m sure I would have been a nervous wreck. Great job! That’s awesome that Arden is so good at soccer…love the enthusiasm 😉
You haven’t aged at ALL. and your poor couch.. 🙁 and shiplap EVERYTHING. Move me to Waco already..
So cool about being on the news! Happy birthday to your husband!
Arden looks so excited! I am totally the opposite and want my boys to get into another sport other than soccer. Tennis would be ideal but my husband is pushing the soccer card. Anyways, I am right there with you with the mexican food, so now I know what to get for lunch 😉

6 goals?! What a little soccer stud! And I hate waking Finn for preschool pick up! The boys never gets as much as sleep as he wants/needs. Nor do I…
Can’t wait to watch your segment! How fun! And love Arden’s excitement in the soccer photo, she’s a natural! 🙂
Babe, yes! #iwannabeasoccermomtoo
I loved your TV segment! And how adorable is toddler soccer?! I’m dying at her expression!
I cannot wake a sleeping babe. They look too peaceful and sweet and I just won’t. The few times I’ve had to, I put it off for as long as possible and even still, we were late. Let the babes sleep!
ten years later and havent aged a day!! and date parties, ahh forgot all about those ha.
Emily Kongs says
Arden’s face!! That is priceless! I loved your segment and the kids totally watched it with me and O was like we know her, right?! Mexican is my love language and Nash, sweet Nash that sleeping babe…. boys and their messes!! Get use to it girlfriend! EEEK!
Emily Kongs says
Oh, yea, and PS- HOW do you not look any older than you did 10 years ago?!??!?! Teach me your ways!
First I’m excited to see your ship lap. I have dreams of redoing part of our mantle (we currently have a mini mantle on top of our mantle that I’d like to remove) and add ship lap up to the ceiling. But kitchen reno first! Also we eat Mexican at least twice a week ?
That picture of Arden playing soccer is SO CUTE! I can’t believe she scored SIX goals! Go girl go!
How adorable is little Arden and her celebrations!!
Give me Mexican EVERY DAY. And sweet friend, do you not age??
