Hi friends! Happy Friday!! I think we’re really settling into our summer groove now and I’m excited to share some cheap or FREE things you can do with your kiddos this summer next week. I was nervous about being home alone with two kids (one a baby!) this summer, but my friend Melissa (with three kids and one a little younger than Jordan!) has given me new confidence about how much fun you can have with two! I was talking to her about all the things they’d been doing and I was all, if they can do it, I bet we could too.View Post
Even as a work-from-home mom, I make an effort to get myself ready and put on something cute for the day! It not only makes me more productive, it helps me feel better about myself! I’m often mixing and matching things from my closet or wearing jean shorts on repeat during the summer, but every month I do a round-up of what I wore, my Outfits Lately, in an effort to provide you some wardrobe inspiration of your own.
Hi guys! I’m so glad you liked my Meal Prep post! Especially with summer around, I find that it’s best to have things on hand to throw meals together quickly and if they help our waistline, even better! I did a snapchat video on it yesterday so you could see how quick it is to cook the chicken and TexMex ground beef. The video isn’t particularly pretty, but I cared more about just sharing the info with you! We are going to do more Blue Apron meals to mix it up, so I’ll share our next one with you when I get it.View Post
Man, is it Friday already?! This time last week, I was heading to Dallas to spend the day with my friends and was worrying if it was too soon to leave Jordan. She’ll be two months old already on Monday! It goes so fast, yet she’s still such a little baby. It might sound bad, but honestly, I felt comfortable heading out for the day, knowing that she was in good hands with my mom while my husband worked and then Grandma planned to stay until I got home. Maybe because she’s my second or maybe because I was really craving some girl time,View Post
I’m Hi guys! It’s a late night here getting this post up and out before I head to Dallas for a few hours tomorrow to see my girlfriends at a blogger style conference. I wasn’t originally planning on going since Jordan is only so little still. I figured it was out of the question. But, the more I thought about it, I figured I could make it work by just going for the day since it’s so close. I really didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see my friends that live in different states when they’d be practically in my backyard!View Post
Would you believe that baby Jordan is ONE month old today?! I really need to do a birth story post soon before I forget how she seemed like a tiny, little wet kitten when I first held her. So itty bitty and perfect and how I fell instantly in love and wept like a baby myself when they placed her on my chest. And, I want to share how it all happened, just like in the movies with my water breaking in the middle of the night and waking me up from sleep! But more on that soon! She is truly darling and I’m almost afraid to say it out loud,View Post
How has this first week after the Christmas holiday been for you? Not gonna lie, getting back into the groove again has been kinda tough, but also nice to get up and get going in our days again. Having the house all nice and clean and organized has been a huge help in starting this year off right.
We also started a new routine with our 5-year old son where he’s responsible for getting himself ready in the morning without any prompting from Mom or Dad (but with use of a chore chart) and we’ve had two great days,View Post
TGIF friends! This week has been busy, busy, busy and this mama needs a relaxing weekend for sure! We’ve got a little boy home from school today for teacher conferences, so let’s get this post published so we can be off to play! Today, I’m recapping some of my favorite Fall looks that will transition easily to winter that’s approaching soon. I heard someone on the Today show already counting down the days until Black Friday!! #canyoubelieve?!?!
FALL OUTIFTS LATELY
Tassel booties, lightweight sweaters and, when the weather cooperates, a colorful scarf are in heavy rotation around here!View Post
Hi friends! Are you getting all those last-minute Thanksgiving preparations done? Today, I’m cooking up some dishes to take to Thanksgiving brunch at my parents (sour cream coffee cake) and a late lunch at my sis-n-law’s house (jalepeno creamed corn, ham and cheese sliders, chile con queso). I feel stretchy pants coming on. 🙂 Then, we need to get a new Christmas tree- I pulled ours out and after 7 years, it’s finally seen it’s last day. Hopefully, you get a little time off to spend with your friends and family and a break from work! I’ve been home with my son this week,View Post
