The Price of Your Motherhood

What were you like before you had a child or started trying to get pregnant? I can distinctly remember being fun, flirty, and outgoing. I didn’t know what anxiety was like. My mom had told me she had struggled with anxiety some, and I…

Must Haves for Baby

I’d like to think I kind of knew what someone needed for a baby once you welcome them into the world. Now that I’ve had two, I have a grasp on what’s necessary and what you an do without for at least…

Why Can’t My Mustache Fall Out?

The postpartum shed has started. Y’all… this is the worst part of “recovery” for me. It happened at the exact same time with Hallen too. So, I’m hoping it’ll stop at 6 months as well. I feel like my hairline recedes five…

Hazel’s Nursery

I’ve wanted to share Hazel’s nursery with you guys for a while now, but I just don’t quite feel like it’s finished yet! The reality is, though, that I’ll probably be putting those finishing touches on it later this year…

Spit Up With a Side of Guilt

Y’all..this week I leave to go on my first ever “momcation.” I never left Hallen for an extended period of time when she was a baby, because I just couldn’t leave her side, and well…she needed me! I felt guilty leaving…

What Makes You Smile?

 Life is so hectic these days. Kids are no joke with how busy they make you! I definitely understand why people have always said “kids keep you young.” You’re constantly on your toes (literally and figuratively), and there are no two days alike…

Comfort + Practicality with Bravado

What’s the first thing you do once you get home from being out for a while? Whether that be going to work or just hanging out with friends…Mine has always been to take off my bra, and put some comfortable clothes on. Even…

Why Beautycounter?

Why Beautycounter?Why did I start selling something? I didn’t have to. It’s not like I applied for a job, and sent in my resume. Why in the world would anyone join a direct sales company? It’s scammy. It’s fake. It…

Tomorrow Sleep

5111

Do you like getting that luxury hotel sleep? If you say no, I’m not going to believe you, so the only answer is “yes!” Well, my husband and I got to collaborate with Tomorrow Sleep, and have been using their sleep system over the past month. The idea of a whole sleep system really appealed to me when I started investigating what that meant. And it really means a system. It’s not all about the mattress (although the mattress has to be amazing, right?!). You really start to think about what makes you start to get sleepy and…

incredibundles-gifting-made-easy

I was so excited to collaborate with Incredibundles. They offer so many types of bundles that you can pick out for baby showers, birthday presents, etc. And Family Day is today, September 25th, so these are the perfect little boxes to add to a fun family filled day. We thought about what we wanted to do for our family time for Family Day, and if Kevin would have had the day off for some reason, we could have made a book bundle for our kiddos to open up in the morning, and then read them the different books throughout the…

Just Perfect

just-perfect

Just perfect. What comes to your mind when you think of something or someone who’s just perfect? A supermodel? A sports player? Someone who seemingly has it all together…career, finances, family, and health?I can tell you that my view of what’s “just perfect” has changed dramatically over the years, just as it did for Kimberly Mohns Roberts, who wrote the book, Just Perfect. Kimberly struggled with anxiety and depression as a teenager, which eventually led her to try and take her own life! After years of overcoming those struggles, she now has two beautiful little girls…

Pretty Pretty Princess. Do you remember that game when you were a child? It was my absolute favorite. It’d always be my first game to pull out when my friends came over! And I’d just be praying I didn’t get the dreaded black ring! I wanted to be a princess from day one of watching all the Disney movies. Well…Hallen is in full princess mode over at the Williams’ household. I’m sure you’ve noticed if you’ve even be following along with our life in squares for only a day. All she wears is…

where-do-i-fit-in-to-all-of-this

Kind of tagging along to my last blog post about the price of motherhood…the next question in my head is, “where do I fit in to all of this in the grand scheme of things.” Who am I now? How can I find the old me in my new identity. I think we all agreed that once you cross the line of going into motherhood, there’s no backing out of it. You’re there forever. So, how do you hold on to a little of that carefree attitude you once embraced? Or how do you remove yourself from…

The Price of Your Motherhood

the-price-of-your-motherhood

What were you like before you had a child or started trying to get pregnant? I can distinctly remember being fun, flirty, and outgoing. I didn’t know what anxiety was like. My mom had told me she had struggled with anxiety some, and I literally didn’t even know what it was. I thought I did, because I felt nervous before big tests or had a knot in my stomach if someone was upset with me (and that still happens). Was that anxiety? Maybe slightly, but nothing like I’ve experienced since having children. I just recently started reading…

What’s the first thing you do once you get home from being out for a while? Whether that be going to work or just hanging out with friends…Mine has always been to take off my bra, and put some comfortable clothes on. Even my mom can attest to that since I was young! And I know you do it too. It’s a little sense of freedom. No more restrictions of how you can lay or cross your legs or where your boobs have to be!I have an inkling that that’s one of the reasons leggings…

My Essentia Pillow

my-essentia-pillow

What’s a good night’s sleep worth to you? I want you to think of a real number in your head or write it down on a piece of paper. Right now, as a mama of two little girls (one who still gets up once a night, and the other who has started venturing out of her room much earlier than her usual), I’d pay top dollar for sleep. Like…give me a wet nurse for a week, the most peaceful hotel room where I can hear the ocean all night, and a mattress and pillow that will…
