…2014 – part two…

7

After part one of this bloggy little series, I thought – why on earth would anyone want to read what our family did all year?  I mean, really….there is NO value in any of this to any living person except for me…and maybe my grandma. But then I realized, that’s not the point.  The point […]

…guess it’s time to write – aka 2014 part 1…

A few weeks ago, I was on a business call with a potential new sponsor for one of my clients.  She mentioned that she had ‘read my blog’. Now, I work in the blogging world, but as you can tell, rarely (like super rare) do I blog in my own little corner of the web. […]

…the elf… Big news around the Groblebe house. We’ve adopted an elf! A boy elf to be exact. He’s thin and tall (for an elf) with brown eyes and brown hair. His name is Erik. It was going to be Chester or Frisbee or Nutsy….and then the kids decided on Erik.  (Go figure.) The kids […]

You’d think by the 4th time I’d have it together.  This should be easy, right?  For the love, I’ve already done this THREE TIMES! That’s the thing about potty training.  It’s not easy, nor is it fun.  But it is a milestone – more so this time, my 4th and most likely, my last time. […]

…holy cow, it’s September…

...Papoo and all the kiddos...

Seriously. September. I have no idea what happened to August. Actually, I do.  August for our family included our annual Summer Slam party, a business trip for me to New York, a visit from my Amma, a visit from my brother in laws Scott and Daren and their awesome kiddos, zip lining, paddle boating and […]

…21 reasons may was awesome…

Here are all four kids upon safe arrival in Orlando.

May was an incredibly weird, busy and out of the ordinary month for our family.  I started traveling May 5th and through a mixture of business and vacation travel, was gone all but one night through May 21st.  While I had a fabulous time, this is not a schedule I’d care to repeat very often. […]

…best place to meet a man? at a wedding…

The night we got engaged...

“I met someone this weekend.” My friend Traci was being subjected to yet another call from my 24 year old single self about a man I had met. “Where did you meet him?” she asked. “At my cousin’s wedding in New Mexico.” “Where does he live?” “Well,” I said, “he works construction and kind of […]

…be bold, it’s kind of a big deal…

In 2008, before we moved back to Colorado, my mom would always tell me about this girl who worked in the office next to hers.  She’d say, “Oh Joy, I wish you lived here, you would just love her!  You two would be such good friends, you’re so alike, blah blah blah…”  (To clarify, those […]

….i will not choose ice cream & diet coke…

I’m very blessed this morning.   My children are safe, secure and loved. My husband is absolutely the most amazing person on this planet. My Amma is here to visit for a month – seriously, what could be better? My business is thriving. Why write this down?  Well, it’s mostly for me.  I needed to […]
