All the Sun For You

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



I am going to my first consignment event tomorrow and I am so excited!  I will post all about it (even if it sucks).  I am going in pursuit of good quality, well cared for clothing.  We shall see what I find!  I am dragging taking along two friends – one with her first baby on the way and one with her third (her first two are twins).  I think it’s going to be crazy – tons of moms with nothing on their calendars more exciting than this one huge event.  😉

I am off to bed.  It is taking everything in me not to curl up on the sofa and fall asleep right now.  Ever since I was very young, I’ve gotten much joy out of falling asleep in a chair or on the sofa – heck, even on the floor – out in the living room with the lights on and the house still “up.”  B is used to it now and just lets me do it and then will gently wake me up to go to bed when he heads back.  He knows I just prefer to fall asleep this way.  It’s weird.  But it’s a family thing – my dad does it too and always has.  Strange.

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. I love consignment clothes! There are a lot of good stores near me with consignment clothes for adults, but none for kids. There’s also a clothing swap in my neighborhood every year. What kind of an event is this?

    I also like to just go to sleep on the sofa sometimes, usually when I’m home alone. Sometimes the process of going to bed just takes too much effort. 🙂

    • This event was called, “Just between friends.” (They’re on the web, obviously, and go to various cities around the country). I can honestly say that now that I’ve gone to 4 different consignment stores in the area – I much prefer the stores.

      And you nailed it – sometimes going to be takes too much effort. I think that’s sometimes why I stay up so late in the first place – because going to bed means doing something specific.

  2. I’m jealous! I LOVE secondhand shopping! Hope you score some great finds! 🙂

  3. Love it. I always go to consignment first, then whatever I can’t find I’ll go to a regular store. I got all my baby clothes for like 25cents per onsie, brand new condition. It is awesome! I hope you find some great stuff! 🙂
