Happy Birthday Dylan

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

A few things we love about our guy:

1. He is young at heart. The kids totally get their imagination from him and love to play with him every second of the day that he is home. He can come up with a bed time story on que and will always play the bad guy so Krew can be the hero.
2. He typically only will drink iced drinks. He's been getting up for work at 4 in the morning for years now and just this past year has he caved on using my kureig in the morning. Waking up with the kids a couple hours later and finding no creamer is my favorite---😒
3. Dylan is the most athletic guy I know. He can literally play any sport and has the confidence of a pro! I used to love watching him play and now its not often I see him get to show off his competitive side //but I thank god daily for his skills and genetics to pass down to the boys haha. He's a breeder, folks.
4. He is so helpful around the house and can actually be kind of uptight about it. We always have to hurry and do a clean up before dad gets home because he will get stressed and start picking up our mess! I'm a relatively clean person so it always makes me laugh when he will give me a hard time about folding laundry and things. If I get too lazy, he will do it! He's the best.
5. He loves history + reading. If we could, we would go explore a library and watch documentaries and conspiracy theories all night. He is such a goofball most the time but I love how much he appreciates history and knowledge. He is always teaching me little things. One of my favorite qualities about him his ability to listen and engage with older people. He loves to pick their brains and hear their stories and it's always so cute to watch.


Podolak Family Blog + News

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I'm so excited to finally be sharing a blog again! Writing has always been a passion of mine and I have journaled off and on my whole life. Being a mama I love being able to share my thoughts on motherhood and daily life- the good, bad, funny and all the other things. Instagram has been a great place for me to share thoughts + photos---but I'm looking forward to telling more of our story. If you're still reading along, thank you and welcome!

We also have exciting news for this coming year! I have recently began the works for a new small business and I am just dying to share. I truly feel like I have found my stay at home mom THING. I am so passionate about motherhood, fashion, and photography and I came to the conclusion that neeeeeded a creative outlet of my own that made it possible for me to be with my family. I am planning on opening an etsy shop  in the next month and will have lots of cute sweat shirts, tees + more for mamas and their littles. I have found so much inspiration from other moms off and online and couldn't think of a better title for my shop than MOMLIFE CO. At first I thought of it as kind of a joke, but seriously it has become such a regular #hashtag in my life I couldn't help but lol and think, this IS my life why not name it that. Feel free to follow me on IG @shopmomlifeco for upcoming posts and merch! We hope everyone is having a fantastic start to their year! Thank you for your support. XO
