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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Whole30…ish…

If you don’t know what the Whole30 challenge is, check out the link. Basically, you only eat whole foods for 30 days. That is, you eat meat, veggies, and healthy fats. No flour, dairy, legumes, sugar, alcohol, etc. Kevin and I have decided to give this a go, because we figured there’s nothing to lose (except for that ever loving delicious dark chocolate in the fridge).We made a pact this past weekend to start ASAP. The only thing that we didn’t want to do was waste money. That defeats any purpose to me. Why waste items…

“Never say never.” That’s what we’re told, right? Growing up your parents always say that when you tell them, “I’m never going to be as mean as you and ground my kids!” Or something to the like. Well, I never thought I’d have a problem having children. I didn’t really even know what that was until we started trying to have little one of our own.I thought I could have the world on my time. It’s my life so my rules, right? Absolutely wrong! The hard part for me is that I didn…

Anxious Thoughts

“I cried out, ‘I am slipping!’ but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.” Psalm 94: 18-19This past year my body has been racked with anxiety. It’s not a feeling you can really put into words. It’s such an out of body experience. You tell your body to stop aching and worrying and spinning out of control, but there is nothing you can do about it in the moment. Your heart just races and your mind knows nothing else. Somehow, you have to ground…

Number One

Number one, which I am not. Just when you think you’ve learned all you can about how to live your life in the best way possible you get side swept with something you thought you’d never have to face.  Growing up, I always “knew” I’d be successful (aka making the big bucks), traveling the world, walking amongst the elite, marrying the most handsome man in the world, and have four little ones who adore me.  Well, three years after graduating from university I still don’t know what “career” I want.  I haven’t traveled outside the…
