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…

Last Mother’s Day

Just writing the title of this post, tears stream down my cheeks. I remember the gut wrenching feeling of knowing that one of my children’s hearts had stopped beating who was supposed to be growing inside of me. It was Mother’s Day weekend…

Spring Travels

Our May filled up so quickly! I feel like we’ve been traveling for the past month. We finally found a system that worked to make Hazel happy in the car, though! So, the last two trips were relatively low stress. Just lots of pumping…

Weekend Baking

Do you have an activity that you just LOVED to do with your mom when you were younger? I do! It was baking for sure. My mom baked so many things whether they were homemade (lemon poppyseed bread…yum!) or from a box (funfetti, anyone…

The Mother I Aspire To Be

Since the month of May has the day we celebrate all types of mothers, I figured I’d keep the “mom” theme going.What has your mother, or one of your role model’s who’s been like a mother, instilled in you? Were you…

Sassy Toddlers

Look at the camera. Smile. Sit down. Stop hitting your sister. Stop hitting the dog with your stroller. Don’t throw that. Stay in your room until I come and get you. No, you can’t go outside without me! Stop pulling my hair! YOU…

Matching Florals

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Like…it’s sooner than you think. I know holidays come around the same time each year, so it shouldn’t be a surprise, but somehow it always is, right?! How is that? I’ll figure it…

Red, White, and You

red-white-and-you

I love summer time. Days are slower, schedules are less hectic, and there always seems to be more time for friends and get togethers. It always makes us want to go out and explore together. There are so many days that we feel “restricted” because of nap times and bed times, but every now and then, we know it’ll be okay to break up the schedule. We’ll survive. The girls will survive. Let’s just go see where the day takes us.Last weekend, we went to shopping for curtains, a mirror, and other random things for the…

Ringly

ringly

I was given the opportunity to try out a Ringly Luxe Bracelet to see what it was like, if I liked it, and how it could fit in with my daily life. Everything below is my honest opinion.  First things first- I’ve never seen a more stylish piece of smart jewelry than this bracelet (or one of their rings). Most people who keep track of steps have some sort of device with a rubber wrist band. The Ringly Luxe Bracelet takes it up a notch (or ten, let’s be honest) by making smart jewelry pieces with…

Anthony Vince Nail Spa

anthony-vince-salon

If you’re in the Charlotte area, I’ve recently had the pleasure to visit a new nail salon in the area, Anthony Vince Spa.I want everyone to close their eyes and think about the nail salon they usually go to. When you walk in, there’s probably a wall of nail colors, the front desk, the manicure tables pushed against the walls, and around 10 pedicure chairs pushed up against the walls in the back, right? There’s probably a nice staff and a couple options for beverages. Now, keep your eyes closed, but imagine that but 10…

Hazel’s Nursery

hazels-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 since she’s still in our bedroom. I LOVE the space that it’s become, through. It’s fun and vibrant. It has different aspects to it from small shops, big shops, neighbors, and Kevin’s childhood. We ended up changing the crib from what Hallen used. Hers was a hand-me-down, and unbeknownst…

Weekend Baking

Do you have an activity that you just LOVED to do with your mom when you were younger? I do! It was baking for sure. My mom baked so many things whether they were homemade (lemon poppyseed bread…yum!) or from a box (funfetti, anyone?!). It was the experience of doing something and creating something with my mom…okay…and licking the bowl, because if it was just the two of us, I got the whole thing to myself! If my brother was around, she’d draw a line down the middle of the bowl, and we’d each get…

SudPrize Bath Balls

sudprize-bath-balls

I know most kids go crazy for bubbles in their baths. I did! It was one thing that would make me jump in the tub when I was younger.Well…we’ve tried bubbles a handful of times with Hallen, and she freaks out. At first, I was like…you’re a kid! Like the bubbles! But, for some reason, her little sassy self just can’t stand them. So, when we first tried SudPrize bath balls, I was nervous. Inside, I was telling myself, “just act normal. Just act normal…pretend this is just like every other bath.” I…

Spring Travels

spring-travels

Our May filled up so quickly! I feel like we’ve been traveling for the past month. We finally found a system that worked to make Hazel happy in the car, though! So, the last two trips were relatively low stress. Just lots of pumping in the car! When there’s a crying baby involved, you don’t really care if you’re hooked up to a pump driving by everyone. If you see something you don’t want to see, don’t look in my windows! We did have such a great time celebrating my grandmother’s 80th birthday…
