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…

Last Mother’s Day

Just writing the title of this post, tears stream down my cheeks. I remember the gut wrenching feeling of knowing that one of my children’s hearts had stopped beating who was supposed to be growing inside of me. It was Mother’s Day weekend…

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…

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…

The Mother I Aspire To Be

Since the month of May has the day we celebrate all types of mothers, I figured I’d keep the “mom” theme going.What has your mother, or one of your role model’s who’s been like a mother, instilled in you? Were you…

Sassy Toddlers

Look at the camera. Smile. Sit down. Stop hitting your sister. Stop hitting the dog with your stroller. Don’t throw that. Stay in your room until I come and get you. No, you can’t go outside without me! Stop pulling my hair! YOU…

Matching Florals

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Like…it’s sooner than you think. I know holidays come around the same time each year, so it shouldn’t be a surprise, but somehow it always is, right?! How is that? I’ll figure it…

Vienna Springs

vienna-springs

I love baby wearing. Love it. It’s so sweet when your little babe snuggles against your chest and you feel her breath on your skin. And right now, Hazel will only sleep when she’s being worn when we’re out and about. She’ll cry 45 minutes on a car ride, but once my husband or I get her out of the car and place her on our chest in my Vienna Springs ring sling, she instantly calms down. Her cry slows to that teeny little whimper while she catches her breath until she finally falls asleep so…

LOLA

lola

If you try to live your life as natural and as free of chemicals as possible, I’ve found a product for you! LOLA!I received a box of tampons and ultra thin liners to try out, and I can say that I do love them. They’re sleek, aren’t uncomfortable, and they’re healthier than your traditional feminine products!LOLA products are all organic cotton- no synthetic stuff, dyes, or toxins. It’s kind of scary when you start to research what’s in your products that you use every month! On top of an all organic, great…

essential-oils-nighttime-routines

I love essential oils. I don’t use them daily like I should, but I always know that “there’s an oil for that!” And when something is off in my body, I always like to try and work it out naturally instead of popping an Aspirin. I like to do that with my girls, too. I am so thankful for modern medicine, but I also know that there’s a lot we can do without.That being said, I was sent these roller ball applicators for oils from Floating Feather Essentials to try out. I got the Calm and…

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Like…it’s sooner than you think. I know holidays come around the same time each year, so it shouldn’t be a surprise, but somehow it always is, right?! How is that? I’ll figure it out one day! I always say I’ll buy things way ahead of time, but then end up doing last minute shopping.Well, I found the perfect mommy and me outfits for all of you who love to match your daughters! The fun thing is that these are all small shops, so you’re helping…

Wind Blown

wind-blown

Yep. Still talking about the wind in Florida. Because who can really pull of the wind blown look anyways?! I want to meet that woman and shake her hand. And then, ask her what products she uses. Even with a keratin treatment I look like a scruffy pup! If there was never torrential wind again, I think I’d be okay with that.When there is a lot of big gusts, though, there’s nothing better than a little more length on a dress so that it doesn’t get blown up so easily!This happened to be my Easter…

Windy Days

windy-days

You guys. I want to move to Florida. We just moved to Charlotte a year ago, but palm trees on the horizon are calling my name! I think we may just have to plant palmetto trees on the borders of our yard here for now ha!We had so much fun visiting family for a few days in sunny Florida. Although, it was warmer in Charlotte then it was there for those few days. We were battling some serious wind. I don’t think I really even needed to apply sunscreen, because I was constantly in a jacket or wrapped…

Casual LBD

casual-lbd

We may have just gotten back from Florida, but I’ve got a couple things to show you before I go straight to the vacay pics! And honestly, not even too many photos from the vacation! You know when it’s all just a whirlwind…like a literal whirlwind. It was SO windy there. It never died down. I think I touched the sand three times, and not more than five minutes either of those times. Kind of a bummer, but we got some good family time in with Kevin’s family. It was really refreshing. And now I want…

these-are-a-few-of-my-favorite-things

As a mom, I need things that are quick, easy, accessible, organized, healthy, practical, but still pretty! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite things I’m loving this spring:Floral Booties (mine are sold out, but here are some similar ones)Belly Bandit Bandita Nursing BraThis bra is a little piece of Heaven. Seriously. It doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing it under my clothes, which is exactly what everyone wants out of a bra! I definitely need another one, because it’s one of those pieces that you hate to have to wash. It…
