If you follow us on any of our social media platforms then you heard the amazing news- Justin was accepted to attend Officer Training School! This is a HUGE goal that he has been after since he enlisted in the Air Force and I couldn’t be more proud. So please excuse me while I brag… Continue reading The Next Step in Justin’s Military Career
Yep, you read that right! We are a one car family and have been for almost 3 years. When Justin enlisted into the military we had two cars (and two car payments.) After basic training, he came home for two weeks before heading to tech school. During that time, we traded in both of our… Continue reading Surviving As a One Car Family
Thanksgiving 2019 was our second Thanksgiving in Utah and second away from our family. The miles always seem so much longer during holidays. But we do make the very most of it! We love making our our traditions and enjoying time together. We are so thankful for all of our blessings and thankful to be… Continue reading Our Snowy Thanksgiving
With Christmas right around the corner, I figured I would put together a list of some items that we already own and love for Maverick! Hopefully some of these can spark some inspiration as you begin your holiday shopping for your littles! Fisher Price Little People. I remember playing with these as a kid so it… Continue reading One Year Old Holiday Gift Guide
Wow, what an amazing year it has been. On September 23, 2019 Maverick John McCoog turned ONE! I wanted to share some pictures and memories from his special day. ￼ We celebrated in Victor, Idaho and Jackson, Wyoming for a week with my Dad, Step Mom, Sister and Grandmother. Unfortunately, Justin was away on a… Continue reading Maverick’s Frist Birthday!
This past weekend marked two years since Justin graduated from basic military training and officially became a US Airman (I mean I guess he officially became an Airman when he left for BMT but I feel like graduation made it officially official!) These past two years have been so busy. I feel like so much… Continue reading Two Tips From My Two Years As a Military Spouse
Summer is officially here and we have been LOVING the pool! When we first took Maverick he was a little shocked by the temperature of the water, but soon decided that it was actually so much fun! We are so lucky because the apartment complex we live in has a pool and we've been able… Continue reading Pool Time with Maverick
Banana bread is one of my favorite things to bake. It's easy, relatively mess free and I get to use up those super ripe bananas that browned overnight. Since going egg and dairy free to try to solve Maverick's intolerances, I haven't been able to use my tried a true recipe. After a bit of… Continue reading Egg Free Banana Bread
Introducing Maverick to food has been such a fun (and very messy) experience. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to make my own baby food. I love cooking and this allows me to know exactly what I am feeding my little guy! PLUS it's also way cheaper (but not always more convenient) than… Continue reading Making Homemade Baby Food
This past weekend, Maverick had his half birthday! I know that it sounds completely cliche, but it's true what they say - TIME FLIES when your babies are little. He has grown so much these past six months both mentally and physically (his cheeks just keep getting more squishable and squishable by the day!) He… Continue reading Maverick is Half a Year Old!
