Stop Washing Your Hair

Before having kids, I never left the house without my hair being done and my makeup being perfect. Spending an hour in the morning getting ready was not a problem…until I had kids. Like many moms, I pushed my needs aside. I didn’t take care of myself. I got into a rut of ponytails and yoga pants. It was […]

It’s All About the Curls

Before having kids, I was a hairstylist. I enjoyed helping people transform their look and feel confident. Even though I no longer work in a salon, I love getting the chance to style a friend’s hair for a special occasion. I’m often asked how I curl my hair. There’s not a standard answer. Everyone has different hair […]

If the Cup Fits | Sponsored

If you’re like me, finding a bra has proven to be quite difficult- and finding a nursing bra is seemingly impossible. I want something comfortable, flattering and gives me shape. Am I asking too much? I jumped at the opportunity to visit La Lingerie in search for that bra. Why appointment only? We believe every woman deserves and needs private attention to find her […]

Perspective

I sit. Waiting for the phone to ring. Waiting to hear from my 5-year-old’s doctor. Waiting to find out if she will undergo yet another surgery. Waiting to hear what our future holds. Like 15 surgeries in 5 years isn’t enough. My heart beats heavier as I mentally run through potential complications of the potential […]

Freshly Picked Review and Giveaway

Maybe you’re like me. It’s tough to find shoes for my two-year-old. She’s either saying “feet. hurt.” or “no. shoes.” Emma’s an active little girl who is always running from one thing to the next and insists on wearing dresses everyday. I was look for something long lasting, cute and wouldn’t leave Emma with blisters. When I found Freshly Picked […]

People always tell you how fast babies grow up and the next thing you’ll know, they’ll be starting preschool! It’s hard to believe them when you’re functioning on just a few hours of sleep. 10 weeks ago, my family welcomed our third daughter to the familyl! After a fast labor and quick hospital stay, we were thrown into […]

Packing for the Hospital

When thinking of what I’ll pack in my hospital bag, I always turn to the good ol’ internet to see what everyone suggests. Every list is so different. Every mom is so different. I’ve always been an over-packer. Leaving town for one night still means I take 3+ outfits  and just as many shoes! What […]

A Family Getaway

I’m always looking for a chance to get out of town with my family. This winter has been bitterly cold, leaving my two daughters and I inside most days. Getting away takes a lot of planning- getting time off work, packing, and money. With busy schedules, it’s hard to find more than just a weekend to […]

Studio Indigo {Sponsored Post}

My baby recently turned ONE! And what a fast year it was! We had her one-year pictures taken a few weeks back by Studio Indigo. Maybe your kids are like mine- as soon as that camera comes out; they turn straight-faced and usually end up crying! I’m not above bribery- cotton candy often does the […]

Date Night

Six years ago, my husband and I started our new life together. We began our journey by moving 14 hours away from family. We were young and newly married, so staying up until midnight watching a movie or playing a game was common. We could function on little sleep. We would drive an hour or […]
