My Poor Blog

Are you there, Blog?
It's me, Margaret Rachel.

(Okay, if you didn't get that intro, then you are clearly neither female nor my age.)

Anywho -

HELLO people who still read this!
 (Hi Mom and Mom-in-law)

While, I have not been busy blogging, we have been super busy. So here's a quick photo recap. Excuse the excessive amount of selfies. They're just fun sometimes. I don't know why.

In no particular order.......I give you November:

Took the dogs to the vet.
They're great.

Except the brown one is really old.
And we were told to enjoy her.

So I'm trying to do more of this:

Because I love them.
Like really love them.
Like a lot.

And then?
We hosted a baby shower while Todd was out of town.
The kids just lllooooovvvvveeeedddddd doing chores

while I turned this epic fail

into this:

And it was still pretty much an epic fail because nobody ate it at the shower.

Long story short, let's just say there was some confusion......
and multiple cakes.

But that's neither here nor there.

This girl is about to turn nine this week.
I have been parenting for almost a decade.
And I still don't know what the heck I'm doing.

This boy is just a CRAP TON of cuteness balled up in one little body.
Literally makes me smile EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

And I totally busted this one sneaking a snack in the pantry.
It was the happiest freaking day of my life.

Hellz to the yeah, Owen!
Sneak away!!
You go on with your bad self!

Let's see........I chopped my hair off.
(Well, I paid someone to chop my hair off.)

I don't know if I like it curly or straight.
Feel free to vote.

And I got to go on a few dates with this handsome fella.

And my awesome sister-in-law.....

Oh and my parents came into town for a few days and my mom helped the kids make teacher gifts.
They turned out so cute and SO much better than anything I could have come up with! Thank you Pinterest and Panze. Together, you are a force to be reckoned with!

And last but not least? We finished November with a trip to the beach for Thanksgiving.
Yet another bad selfie of me and my m-i-l goofing off while shopping with Allisen.

T'was fun. T'was fun indeed.

We had an awesome trip, celebrated the diva's birthday, and laughed more than I've laughed in a long time.

So basically?
Life is busy but good right now.
Like really good. 
Like" pinch yourself are things really going this well?" good.

And to make things even better......

My sister will be here in 21 days!
Awe yeah!
Bring it!


  1. My blog thinks I died. I can't believe EG is 9. It seems like yesterday Todd was changing her diaper on the desks in my classroom. Love the haircut.

    1. Lol, Katie. I forgot about the diaper changes. We were just preparing you......? And I miss your blog!! Come back!! Don't die!!!

  2. I love every single picture but the one with you loving on the dogs grips my heart with love and future sadness mixed into it all so enjoy enjoy enjoy. Kaia has always been such a blessing! As for the fav pic though it has GOT to be the well-staged selfie of you and & hanging out in a dressing room....well, we 3 DID take over the whole wing of rooms I think.....and was followed by expert advice on my new "hip" look in my new jeans. LOVE the stylin' tips and most of all just laughing and hanging out with you and Brownie! LYMI
