Everyday with Three

June 30, 2017


Happy Friday, everyone! It's been a while since I've shared a life update and I thought digging a little deeper into life with three kids now would be a good way to start.

We've adjusted seamlessly with Hollyn in the bunch and I jumped right back into life after having her. I was telling a friend the other day when Emery was born, we took 4 ish weeks to get back to normal routine of church and meals and just living but with Hollyn, I was at church two days after being home from the hospital. Like we jumped right back in!

Functionality for the Win

June 28, 2017


I'm getting myself out of my comfort zone more and more taking the kids to do things- the park, the mall, outings with friends, pool dates. We live in north Peoria and there's a community called Vistancia about 2 minutes from our house which has the best playground, club house and pool setup so when we just need to get out and go, it's our place to go hang. Thankfully, we have a friend who lives in that community so we get access through her. I'll be sad if she ever moves because that playground has a lot to live up to!

Americana for the Family

July 4th somehow always seems to creep up on me and I'm left scrambling through the closets trying to pull together outfits for us all to coordinate and show our patriotism. This year, I'm preparing and rounded up a couple options for the whole family!

We have some things around the house scheduled for July 4th but I'm sure we'll open our house to family and friends to come BBQ. Do you have plans yet? I would love to keep the babies up past bedtime for fireworks too but sometimes attitudes and being totally done with the day means 6pm bedtime, like usual.

Friday Feels

June 16, 2017


Happy Friday! We have been so so busy the last couple weeks. With Drake having summer camp and the girls and I fighting some sickness to Andrew working extra hours and also dog sitting for our close friends... I blinked and realized it's Friday. ALREADY.

It's a long time coming getting this post up and going since my last tutorial doing these curls... 4 years ago. Yikes! I get asked daily how I achieve my curls and what iron (here) and tools I'm using so I figured it was time to compile it all in one place.


Bath Time

June 7, 2017


Hollyn is now sitting up in the tub during bath time and it's something so sweet to watch. I've always dreamed about having my babies take baths together and just enjoy the time in the tub and it's completely come full circle seeing that happen now.

Body Positivity

Body positivity is a weird thing, right? You're pushed to love yourself and give yourself grace and embrace the "mom bod" and simply be happy in your own skin but it's a damn roller coaster. From times to acknowledging a change needs to happen or from the moment of saying F it, I'm going to love myself and be comfortable with who I am today.
