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…

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…
