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…

Anthony Vince Nail Spa

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…

why-cant-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 inches. Why does pregnancy come with such terrible side effects? In my head, I think it should make you more beautiful. Like…if my hair is going to fall out, why can’t my mustache hair fall out instead? That’s the hair I really don’t want! Or the unruly eyebrow hairs..or my…

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 her to go have fun. I felt guilty for not being there for a fun moment that she may have. I felt guilty for her few minutes of crying that would inevitably happen when I closed the door and said goodbye. I felt guilty before even making plans, so I just didn’t make plans…

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…

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…

She empowers women to want to be successful and her company is a great representation of that. That was one of the top…

Weekend Baking

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…
