Happy 5th Birthday

Happy Birthday to our little JBear! Five years ago today we were blessed with a little angel.


Every day since we have realized how lucky we are to have him in our lives.



Kid Stuff: First Day Of School Ideas

My little man is starting kindergarten this year (I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!). My mind is currently pre-occupied with all the little ways I can make this day so special and memorable for my little man. These ideas are so cute I just had to share with all of you.

Countdown until the first day:

I stole this idea and changed it to a countdown to the first day of Kindergarten.  Will work on number identification/counting backwards skills, too.  We've already popped our first balloon!

Documenting this milestone moment:

First day of Kindergarten idea. Used an old mirror and taped black paper over it. Then used a silver sharpie for the letters. I think It came out so cute!

First day of Kindergarten picture ideas. Love the school bus one! @meredithbridgewater

Brain foods for your little one, healthy and fun:

One Year Ago

One year ago today, this little blog was started in true Gemini fashion. My friend, Julie, said “you should start your own blog” and so I spent more time pondering what our name would be than I did researching what exactly a blog entailed and so Our  Life In Action was born. 🙂

My first post was short, sweet and to the point.

Lately it seems as though I am dabbling in a little of everything and accomplishing nothing. Our entire home is a work in progress and currently it feels like it is more a work in chaos then progress.  Ahh well…watcha gonna do?  As my sister would say….you need a list! And so the lists begin.

Much to my surprise, I got hooked and am still typing away one year later. Seriously guys, this is a big feat for me. 😉 I usually get bored and am on to the next project/craft/idea within a couple of weeks. But this is different, I love every second of it.

So from now until the end of the month, I am going to celebrate this blog’s one year anniversary. I’m thinking of a give-away, maybe pulling back the curtain so to speak and letting you all into my little world, more DIY (of course) and all the silly goodness that this blog has to offer. So what do you want to know about me? Do you want a house tour? How about a getting to know the family a little better? Maybe a vlog session to give you a sneak peek at a typical day at Our Life In Action. How about blog stuff like what have I learnt? What would I do different? What would I do the same? Ask away people and I’ll answerer. 🙂

Thank you to everyone who stops by, reads, comments, and giggles at my shenanigans. Without you, I’m not sure I would be celebrating this blogiversary.
