Little Swimmers and Getting Wet

by jessicaturner on June 24, 2013

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #HuggiesSwimmers One of my favorite summertime activities is to get wet. Swimming, sprinklers, fountains, water parks – you name it, I love it. Because Adeline is still in diapers, […]


Pinterest Cannot Be Your Yardstick

by jessicaturner on May 13, 2013

Last week Tuesday was Teacher Appreciation Day. Thanks to Pinterest I had high hopes of making homemade sugar scrubs in mason jars with perfect printable tags. But I ran out of time. So Tuesday morning, I folded three pieces of construction paper for Elias to make cards for his three classroom teachers. When Matthew came […]


Good Morning

by jessicaturner on April 20, 2013

I’m in Salt Lake at Snap!, a blogging conference for crafty and DIY bloggers. I’m rooming with my dear friend and amazing jewelry designer Lisa Leonard and having a blast. But, I must say, I miss my morning snuggles with Adeline. She has been getting up EARLY so we have had some special Mommy/Adeline time. […]


Motherhood Monday: Savoring the Little Moments

by jessicaturner on November 5, 2012

This weekend I was in Kansas City supporting my friends Ann and Angie at Women of Faith. It was a great, quick getaway weekend. I left Friday night after work and got home yesterday at 8:30 am. As much fun as I had in Kansas City, I couldn’t wait to be home with my sweet […]


Motherhood Monday: Getting Some Me Time

by jessicaturner on October 15, 2012

As you know, this past weekend I was in Indianapolis for Influence. I opted not to go to every session. Instead I carved out lots of time for me. I spent quiet hours in my hotel room writing. I wandered the huge mall that was attached to the hotel by myself. I stopped in Aveda […]


Motherhood Monday: When the Past Repeats Itself

by jessicaturner on August 20, 2012

This past weekend the kids and I have been visiting my family in WI. This gave Matthew a few days to prepare for being out of the country for 10 days and us a great way to end the summer. One of the trip highlights was taking Elias fishing at a small pond that my […]


Motherhood Monday: The Gift of Friendship

by jessicaturner on June 11, 2012

My friend Ann stayed with us this weekend, and it was a glorious gift. Since she lives in Canada, our quality time together is limited, so we made the most of this weekend. We stayed up late, shopped til we dropped, ate great food (I made these banana blueberry muffins (amazing), this cinnamon roll breakfast […]


I am TGIFing in a major big way today. I have big plans for this weekend. We are taking Elias to the Vanderbilt baseball game on Saturday. He is so excited to see “big guys” play baseball, though he doesn’t quite understand why he can’t play too. The weather has been so beautiful in Nashville. […]


Motherhood Monday: That Works for Me!

by jessicaturner on April 9, 2012

I hope that y’all had a fabulous Easter weekend. We sure did. We did an Easter egg hunt on Saturday, church on Sunday and then friends came over for a yummy dinner last night. I’m looking forward to some normalcy this week – can I get an amen? Between spring break last week and then […]


Motherhood Monday: My Mom

by jessicaturner on March 26, 2012

This weekend, my parents visited. Matthew captured this photo. I love it. Three generations of strong women. My mom. Me. Adeline. It has been so nice to have my mom here. She helped me organize closets and do that big kids’ clothing transition from fall/winter to spring/summer (it took hours!). She folded lots of socks […]
