Day 204
Karli’s room all cleaned and organized. Wish it would last! We have a new nightstand being delivered that will replace her dresser to make more room.

Day 205
Feeling accomplished…Blake and Chase’s new comforters. Found cheap bed in the bag deals to add some more color to their room.

Day 206
Chase having a blast at a friends birthday party!

Day 207
Relaxing and Reading in my new chair!

Day 208
Beautiful baby shower for my cousin yesterday. Loved the decorations!

Day 209
It was exactly one year ago when this little stinker ran away from home when we left for vacation. She’s still grounded!!

Day 210
Mother Daughter Pedicures! First time for both of us.



Day 197
I made Karli give the Chick-fil-A cow a kiss before she could get some dinner!

Day 198
dance nationals
Karli had dance nationals in Kalahari. I thought the girls performed their very best and while they didn’t take home the top scores, they gave it their all.

Day 199
Second day of dance nationals. On the way home we stopped to have a Sonic burger and milkshake. Karli thought it was so delicious and said we need a Sonic by our house. We actually have one about 15 minutes away, but have never eaten there. So was pretty excited to hear that!

Day 200
I am a genius. Getting the kids a pool toy that encourages more fighting.

Day 201
boys room
Painting the boys room and they wanted to keep the red stripe so LOTS of trim work. Painting over the blues with a light gray for Bedford colors NOT Ohio State, haha!

Day 202
boys room
All done and boy is my back feeling it.

Day 203
I’m loving this season of the Bachelorette. It’s crazy to think how many years I have watched this show…from the beginning. I can’t imagine anyone is confused about who she is going to choose. Pretty easy to see!


Our most requested video thus far has been the Chubby Bunny Challenge. At the beginning you will also get a taste as to what it’s like to film a video with Chase and Karli. They are a riot, but they also drive me batty at times. But hey, that’s their job I suppose. I hope you all are having a good summer!

On a sidenote… we are really starting to make some decent money off of our videos. So sorry if this blog has turned into just video after video, but right now that is really what I have been enjoying and with the limited time that I do have that is what I have been focusing on. I’ve also found that the older our kids get there is less and less that I really feel I can write about. Our blog is public and is shared with family and friends and I can’t just write about whatever is on my mind. If I did I would probably tick a lot of people off. Haha!! If you do watch our videos, please feel free to comment on YouTube or at least give it a thumbs up. Both of those things help our channel immensely. Thanks!!

We have the worst luck when it comes to getting our cars hit in parking lots. Twice in less than 12 months even! First I had Ken’s Camaro at Karli’s dance studio and one of the teenage girls backed into it. The crazy part is she was parked on the same side of the lot […]

I made this video for Andrew’s graduation party in lieu of making the traditional trifold poster board that most people make. Thinking ahead to after the party when I would have no use for the board I decided that making a video would be something that would last forever. Assuming that some people didn’t get […]
