All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Color Me Happy!


I have never been a pool girl. Never.Ever. I have never been confident in my body, even at my peak fitness level, so pool time just wasn’t going to happen for me.

Until now!

I took Matthew to the public aquatic center today. We were there for 3 hours. We went with another mom friend of mine and her SWEET daughter. We all had a ball! And it was not so warm… Topped out at 76 American degrees (are we the only ones who measure in f?) as we left. If was 69 when we got there, but it did not matter… We had a super time. We had so much fun that I bought a summer pass and we’re going back tomorrow!!!

I now understand how some families live at the pool in the summer…. I may be one of those mothers. I need to stock up on Little Swimm.ers and sunscreen. It’s a good thing I bought 2 new swimsuits the other day. Matthew and I are set!!!!

I think I’m finally getting the hang if this SAHM gig of mine. 🙂

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Where did you get his swimsuit ?!? ADORABLE!

  2. So fun! I’ve never been a pool person either- I really want to take G though, but it’s already 95 degrees here- bleh!

  3. Ugh, I’m not a pool person either, but you give me hope that might change one day. And yes, you’re the only ones that measure temperature that way. I actually have no idea what 72 deg F means.
