Gift List for Women

Here’s a short list of shops I’ve been lucky enough to work with or lucky enough to stumble upon and fall in love with! I have the list for you first, just like with the children’s gift guide, and then some photos…

Sevenly – People Matter

When Sevenly first reached out to me to see if I’d like to collaborate with them, I researched what they stood for just like I do with every company that I work with. I want to make sure we mesh; that we vibe; that…

JJ Cole Bundleme

This past weekend, we went to a Christmas tree farm! Too early? Maybe for some…but we don’t actually go to get a tree. We go just to get in the Christmas spirit! Who doesn’t like to be around hundreds of trees?! And…

Plant Based Menu with Bob’s Red Mill

For me, Christmas is here. Like seriously. We’re putting our Christmas decorations up this Friday night. I have it scheduled in mine and Kevin’s synced calendar. It’s happening. If it’s warm, we may just have to blast the AC so we…

Tomorrow Sleep

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…

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…

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…

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-little-adventures

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…

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 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…

Must Haves for Baby

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 the first 6 months.  The first thing is a complete nursery. no need to have it completed! Even though, I HAD to have both nurseries completed before the girls came home. It’s just a fun part of nesting and preparing yourself for this new little human being that’ll be taking up space in…

Margaux and May

margaux-and-max

All of us mamas are on the look for that perfect bag. I know it, because I’ve always been on the look! And I feel like I need different bags for different activities. I’ve been known to bring four bags. Those aren’t my favorite days. I’m already carrying 2 kids, but when you add 4 bags, insanity happens! But when I started out, it just made sense in my head for organization purposes. I bet you’ve been there too ha!I’ve found an amazing bag from Margaux and May for those days when I…
