Mom Bashing.

Mom bashing. Judging. Secretly talking about someone behind their back. Someone isn’t raising their child like you (how could they!?). Bullying a mom you don’t know online. Making a mom feel like she’s unfit.You guys, this has to stop. And I…

Anniversary Weekend

This past weekend was a special one. I’m sure a lot of you saw on my Instastories that it was our anniversary. Anniversaries sure look a lot different with kids, don’t they? We were lucky enough to have some friends watch our girls…

Weekend Recap: Mountain Weekend

I’m not sure when the last time you went on a little getaway just to do nothing, have no agenda, except to be silly with your friends and lounge in your pjs all weekend long. It had been a while since Kevin and I…

AdventureNest

“She was an adventurer at heart; but oh how she loved drinking this tea from this mug in this chair. Oh how she loved to be home.”That quote explains me to a T. Adventure was my middle name before children, and then I saw…

Mommy and Me: Snow Day Edition

It comes to no surprise that I love mommy and me pieces. I never thought I’d be the mom that wanted to match her kids ( I remember hatinggggg that as a child), but here I am, 29 years young, wanting to do a little…

New Year. New Flu

What a way to start the New Year. I went to a New Year party by myself, while Kevin stayed home with the girls, because he was so sick. I felt awful for him. A couple days later, Hallen drank out of his cup, and…

Organizing. Organizing. Organizing.

One of my goals this year was to create a simplified life, starting with our home. I want an organized, easy to clean, and just simpler living home. So, this means cleaning out every nook and cranny. Luckily, one of my best friends was doing…

Fashion Friday With the Bump

Well…it’s no secret anymore. We’ve told everyone that we’re expecting! I still wear lots of flowy tops, though, so you may not notice right away. This pregnancy is already so different from when I was pregnant with Hallen. I hardly felt Hallen kicking at all…throughout the whole pregnancy! This one started kicking at 16 weeks…yes 16…and hasn’t stopped! And I have to pee at least twice an hour. The joys! I’ll take that with a healthy pregnancy, though!These are some of my favorite new pieces I’ve snagged…well, Kevin…

Mommy and Me Monday

So, this may not be an every Monday occurrence, but this Monday is a mommy and me kind of day! It’s JUST starting to become fall-ish around here. And I’m going to use the -ish part very strongly. It’s still humid and muggy some days, but the cool mornings have come! Over the next two weeks, we have two mountain escapes planned too, so then I think fall will really feel like it’s setting in. The best part about the little mountain escapes is that they’ll be free of toddler drama! I love Hallen…

Our November Rainbow

There’s been a little nugget of hope hiding away these past few months. I began with very little optimism, trying not to get attached to any ideas or future plans. Most days, I tried to push the notion of being pregnant again so quickly out of my head. What if it happened again? I couldn’t lose two babies in a row. The pain would be too difficult.A week before Father’s Day, I innocently started taking pregnancy tests. It had been 5 weeks since our miscarriage, and I just wanted to see. The first one was the…

Thursday Trends

Here goes. I used to blog about fashion when I was in the fashion industry, but stopped once I became a personal trainer. So, I’m going to start it back up with Fashion Friday.I recently got these new clutches from Shop the Other Stuff. They’re completely adorable and perfect for someone like me!I can take one on a date with my husband, and then the next morning throw it in my diaper bag. It carries all the essentials you need; money, lip gloss, credit card, and keys. So much better than lugging something else on your…

A Baby

After writing about our miscarriage story two weeks ago, I couldn’t have felt more loved by our friends, family, and people I’ve never met. It’s still crazy to me that social media can reach so many people. These past couple months, I’ve felt God’s presence more than ever. And when I really think about life’s difficult situations, I know that’s why we go through them. To feel closeness with our Creator; to feel cared for; to learn more about his goodness.Hardships in life, whether short term or long term, can either draw…

I didn’t know if I’d write about this so soon or ever write it really. Something so personal and dear to my heart. But, I feel like the more I write about it, the more I may heal. It may even be healing for someone else going through the same thing.Ever since Hallen was born, I was ready for her to be a big sister. I know that’s a BIG statement, but it’s the truth. I wanted ten little Hallen’s running around and calling me mommy. After we started trying for number two, I…

I’ve got some really exciting news that I can’t wait to share with you! We’re lucky enough to team up with a great shop to give you something that you’ll love and cherish on your little mini me! Bee Mine Sunshine makes adorable women’s and children’s wear. They started their brand to bring moms and daughters closer. They wanted to enhance and embrace that special bond that we have with our little babes. I love that it’s a one stop shop, AND Hallen and I can even share most of their head wraps…

UPDATES!

So, after I hit the publish button on the last post, I received a lot of worried texts, emails, and calls. I think it sounded a lot more depressing than I actually am! So, to clear the air, I really have enjoyed my time here in Baltimore. We’ve met amazing people through a fantastic church (little plug in for The Foundry) and my job at M.Power Yoga Studio. And I know these will be friendships unlike any others in my lifetime. We live within a 5 mile radius of all of our friends…maybe 6 or 7 for…
