Oh gosh. The kids and I have been waiting all year for this day! SUMMER! Like I was telling you here, I am that mom, through and through. I want my children home. Like all the time. Even when they’re annoying, I want them around. When they are screaming, fighting and acting like jerks – I still want them here. Some days are longer than …

Guess what? We are moving! Yep. Me and my family, we are packing up and moving. We are headed south. And I’m feeling pretty nervous about it. But I know that, in the end, I’ll be happy that it happened. Because good things are coming as a result of this move. I’ve actually been hoping this would happen for awhile now, and I’m excited that …

Tammy Hiveley - May 19, 2017

Hats are my life lately. Making their way into every aspect of my everyday. [full disclosure side note: I believe I told someone the other day that tank tops were my life, sooo… ] There’s no doubt I was obsessed with scarves for the last few years. But now. As you can see it has become HATS. Like here and here and here. Clearly, you too, are obsessed. …

I sat down at least 5 different times to type up this week’s post. And each time I highlighted the whole darn thing, hit delete and started over. Again. My brain can’t seem to focus on one complete thought. I’m not even sure if I can get through this post by only talking about my inability to focus. I might just start talking about something …

An Ode To The Single Parents

Distressed tank for summer

It’s a really, really, REALLY busy season for my family right now. We are on the go all the time. I’m fortunate that I have a husband who is helpful and an equal partner is getting people where they need to go, especially at night since I’m typically done with work long before he is. Since he usually coaches my son’s sports, he gets Davis …

Some days are easier than others annnd, to be honest, not all the activities have started quite yet but so far so good! We’ve got this. Even though Evie has only been late to school twice this week. …Oh wait, that has nothing to do with …

This Dance Battle Is ON!

Tammy Hiveley - April 5, 2017

Turns out I only like the idea of running but the actual execution is a struggle. Why is it so difficult to put on running shoes and go out the front door? Sounds easiest enough to me… It isn’t. So after forcing myself to run last week I began reflecting back. Reflecting on a random statement I overheard my daughter tell my husband after a family night at …

Mom, Can You Play With Me?

I love playing with my kids. For example, this weekend we played croquet, I punted the ball to my son in the yard, we went for a family walk, we’ve read together, and played games. But my kids are insatiable. “Mom, can you play such and such with me?” is a constant refrain around here. They can’t get enough of my time, and are always asking …
