Checkin' In

Wow. I have missed you guys. I have wanted to come on here many times and share updates throughout our busy summer but I just haven't. How's that for an excuse. Ha. To be completely honest friends I have just been a little overwhelmed with being a mama. I've tried to step away from the computer and it has been nice. Very nice. But I've missed ya'll. Somehow I need to find a balance of some kind....sigh.
Having four little ones at home this summer has proven to be a little busier than last year. I love it, but there are days when I just think..."oh my word could it get any crazier around here?!" ha!

I do plan to upload my pictures (at some point) and share what we've been up to but for now here is a crazy random post of just a few things swirling around in my brain...

:: Are you guys on Pinterest? It is beyond awesome. Basically it's a way to bookmark your favorite ideas. You can organize them all onto boards and see a little thumbnail image of whatever it is for a quick reference.

Then you can follow others to see what they are putting on their boards. I was super intimidated by it at first and had a hard time wrapping my mind around the whole idea, but now i am super addicted. When I first started I went through all my old bookmarks to add them to my boards. It was like Christmas finding all those old ideas and having the ability to organize them all visually. I love it so much and have already found so many new awesome ideas on it. If you're on it come find me. My user name is Sara Haynes.

:: This made me laugh so hard. Yaaaaaaa! I'm not the only one who thinks that! HA!

:: When I hear this song it makes me want to sign up for piano lessons...

:: Speaking of songs, I am so loving this one. I just makes me happy.

:: Last week I forced Elliot to be my real live doll. She wasn't really havin' it and refused to give me a big smile. But I still love this picture. Poor thing. It's a tough life having a photographer as a mama :)

Ok, that's all for now. Hope you are all having (or have had) a wonderful summer! We still have 3 weeks before school starts (yay!!!) so we're trying to savor every last minute!


  1. I can only imagine how full your life is with 4 kiddos! They are so blessed to have you for a mommy!
    I'm going to check out your Pinterest later! I'm scared of Pinterest, but I'm not sure why.

    Love the Jamie Grace song... I went and dedicated it to my hubby on Facebook. He loves Broncos! :)

  2. Pinterest = best thing EVER. I will be hunting you down (unless you get to me first).

    I love that Jaime Grace song. My daughter and I sing it at the top of our lungs every time it comes on.

    Oh my cuteness with the photo!

  3. so fun to hear from you! I'm glad that you have taken time away from the computer... I recently deleted most of the blogs in my Google reader and I'm loving it. So. Much. More. Manageable.

    Love pinterest. I follow you now ;)

  4. i NEVER hang my feet off the edge of the bed!! i am SO terrified of whatever could be lurking under there.

    miss you friend.

  5. I am just brand new to Pinterest... still getting my bearings, ha!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last photo... she is adorable!
