A Couple Favorites

May 31, 2017


Two things I'm going to say you need in your life:

A multi-use cover from KB Cute Designs.

First the top though. It was added to my closet maybe a month ago from PinkBlush and it's one I'm finding myself wearing all the time. The color fade and the length is perfect for casual leggings and sandals or for jeans and sandals. The delicate detail on the ruffles and off the shoulder feature is just so darling! People ask me all the time where I got it from when I'm wearing it on snapchat or instastories so HERE it is.

Hollyn's Nursery 6 Months Later

May 26, 2017


I originally shared Hollyn's nursery, here, but you know how living in a space things get tweaked and updated and a little more... lived in. That's happened! We added some gorgeous Just Born bedding from their Keepsake Collection, pulled in this amazing blue chest from The Land of Nod for blankets and toy and added a few more pieces to the walls to really make it feel homey and perfect for our girl.

The Baby Wearing Transition

May 25, 2017


You guys know how much I love a soft wrap for wearing my babies and it was just about that time I needed something else for transitioning and supporting my little love more. I still use a soft wrap occasionally but I switched over to a Happy Baby Carrier about 2 weeks ago and have absolutely loved it!

My Fiery Emery

May 24, 2017


Have I ever told you I thought I'd have all boys? In my mind, I'd have three boys, all toe head blondes and would wear mohawks, camo shorts and vans. Dumb is a great way to describe thinking I'd be a boy mama. God has a sense of humor and although I have one boy, I was so convinced after having Emery, our second pregnancy would be a boy.

Nope.

Wrong again.

Getting a Grasp on Baby Led Weaning

Baby Led Weaning. What does that even mean? It's the thing to do these days if you have an infant around the 6 month mark and ready to begin solids but honestly, it terrified me. Emery was one that literally didn't chew her food. We had so many scares with her choking (choking, not gagging) because she would immediately swallow whatever was given to her. This time around, I was dreading the transition because the heart stopping, panic moments we're still to real and fresh in my mind. Like she turned blue, you guys. I'm scarred from those experiences.

Recent TULA launch!

May 22, 2017


TULA recently launched a new product so I've been giving it a try for a few weeks, naturally, and I love it! It's a resurfacing gel focusing on balancing your skin- think like a toner and something applied after washing your face, before moisturizing. It offers probiotics and glycolic acid to balance the skin's surface and restore it to it's ideal pH, leaving your skin smooth, hydrating and protected from damage.

Friday Favorites

May 19, 2017

I'm trying to get back into the whole Friday Favorites thing and recap a few things that happened during the week to be grateful for or what I came across really loving. I've neglected the blog and it's embarrassing seeing how it's just been sad and lonely. I hope I can kick back up with posting at least 2-3 times a week again. To put it simply, we're in a busy season of life but Drake is now on summer break so we have one less thing to be running around for!

Thoughts on Mother's Day

Mother's Day. What a heavy and emotional day for some mama's while for others it's joyous and beautiful and a celebration of how strong a woman you are. I fall into the latter for the most part but I can never help but feel some sort of aching deep down for those who have angel babies, babies in different homes, women struggling with infertility or having lost a child any time in their life.

It even stings my heart knowing Drake's mom shares this day with me as his stepmom. He calls every year and shares his heart and how he loves me, he tells me he's grateful for my example and position I model in his life but if I was in his mom's shoes, it would hurt.

Simple Babyhood

May 16, 2017


When I was growing up, my aunt and uncle had these photos framed in their home of their three daughters with the simple capture of parts of their body in the tiny and precious baby state. Their toes, fingers, belly button, lips... all the little details you quickly forget and see fuzzying over time in your mind with each passing day.

Hollyn Grace | 6 Months

May 9, 2017


SIX whole months with our Hollyn bug! The changes from month 2 to month 3 is just so sweet! It's when she started chunking up and becoming more expressive and vocal to us. Smiling, chatting, giggling. Just the sweetest!

When Fresh Flowers Arrive...

May 3, 2017


PinkBlush top HERE

You grab the camera, set up the tripod, self timer and get to snapping. LOL! I recently had the most stunning flower delivery and I had just finished getting ready so the opportune thing to do was take a few new pictures for my website and utilize those gorgeous blooms.
