New Year come on over

The new year is coming and I am getting my mini computer (iPhone) ready to help me document the amazing days to come. 2014 has been a hard year. It started of great with the birth of my second son, but soon after I returned to work and my husband lost his contract and then found a new job the wear of change started to stress on me. My easy life turned into hours out of the house and very few hours of quality time with the family. I had to cut out a lot of things in life: the gym, home cooked meals, blogging, meditation time. Come fall and I suddenly lost my cousin Joey, and a few months later my uncle lost his battle to cancer. I feel like I was never able to stop and catch a break in my days.

It's been wild.

The upcoming new year really has me daydreaming of change and order. I know that I need to make some more changes that will help me to reorganize and prioritize my life a bit. I am looking forward to celebrating my son's first birthday. I am hoping to figure out a way to get back to focusing on my health, and sometime before the end of next year I would be thrilled to be pregnant (the closer to winter the better.)

There is hope for a better year, I've had a couple rough ones lately. 2015 please be kind.


Keep on Looking forward

Day 11, Looking Forward

Today marks the 7th anniversary of our blessed marriage. I am right where I should be in life; maybe just a few more bills that the fairy-tale, but you get the point. My husband, and my baby boys make me feel like the luckiest lady around.

On this day when I am glancing back at our relationship it's almost more fun to look forward and imagine all of the things that we have yet to experience together. 

When we started out as Mr. & Mrs. we had a few goals... kids, a house, a new car, a dog, and an awesome vacation. Luckily for us, we've been able to knock that list out in the few short years we've been hanging around together.

In the upcoming years of our marriage we hope to...

  • take another amazing vacation - with these crazy kids
  • buy a family vehicle
  • spend more time outdoors with each other and our doggy
  • become debt free - other than the house of course... eventually that too
  • continue to love each other the way we do, or more than we do now.
  • see our babies off to their first days of school
  • have an amazing feast with our closest friends at a equally amazing restaurant

I am looking forward to many more years with my main (and only) squeeze. He balances me and I love him so much for being the down to earth, take it slow, let it vibe soul that he is. Happy anniversary husband! I love you soooo very much!


Behind the name WLH

Day 9's prompt is Behind the name.

For those of you who have followed me around the web you might remember names like - The Giant Typo, heyJayka, Duck Tales, Keeping up with the Taylors, or even Discovering Alonzo. These are all blogs I had a different points in time, but once my blog turned into more of a family blog I felt that the "hey Jayka" name no longer matched the content, and the Discovering Alonzo blog was too specific, so I set those both as archives and moved forward with WACKY LITTLE HOUSE. 

I think that you get the picture that we are pretty crazy, wacky, insane, and our house is tiny, little, cozy, so we sort of blend our personality with our actual little house and it seemed to fit so well. What I like most about the name is that it can grow with us... Wacky Little Creations (still working on it) will be our home crafted baby and tot goodies, Wacky Little Reviews is of course all of our product/media review, Wacky Little this and that as we continue along. 

Sometimes I feel like it's so darn long, but overall I like it. I like it a lot. 


Fill in the Blanks Friday!

Day 8, Fill in the Blanks Friday...

My idea of pure perfection would be unlimited travel funds and vacation days, plus a clean house to return to!

My loved ones happiness make the world go 'round.

If it weren't for taxes or student loans I might have some money.

If I had a million dollars... I'd take my whole family (parents/siblings/in-laws) on an amazing vacation, and save some money for the kids college funds.

I'm glad this week is over. It's been a killer.

Something I'm excited about is my 7 year wedding anniversary in a few days!!
