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…

alright-spring-do-your-thing

It’s here! It happens the same day every year, and yet it’s such a day to rejoice when it actually happens! Because on March 20th, we know that even if it’s still snowing, warmth is just around the corner. I like to treat the first day of spring like a holiday. Buy some flowers for the house. Go on a walk in flip flops and no jacket. Maybe start putting sweaters away. Take a look in my bathing suit drawer. Perhaps, go on a casual run/walk to feel like I’m getting in shape for shorts…

some-postpartum-essentials

Second time around this block. This time, I knew what I needed to make my postpartum season and nursing easier, more comfortable, and practical for the life I live. WrapOne of the first things I knew I wanted right after birth was a wrap. Now, for me this wasn’t even about getting right back into shape (although I am a health and fitness advocate). I wanted a wrap for support. After I had Hallen, I had the worst nursing back, and I couldn’t even wear her, because my stomach muscles were too weak. I did a lot…

One Month Ago

First of all, HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY!! You may be going out, drinking green beer, and wearing a shamrock on your cheek with beads around your neck. Definitely not what I’ll be doing, so I’ll be living vicariously through your adventures tonight! Maybe I’ll at least put a shamrock sticker on my cheek. Hallen would probably like to wear one at least. We’ll actually be celebrating Hazel’s one month “birthday.” Or rather…one month ago I pushed Hazel out of you know where au natural, so I deserve a little celebration! Maybe a glass…

Ingrid & Isabel Cozy Wrap

Nine days into this having-two-children-to-raise-now thing, and I feel like it’s going pretty well! I mean, I haven’t been alone with both of them for more than a couple hours, but all in all, I’m loving having two little girls to call ours. Yes, it’s exhausting. Yes, it takes a lot of prep to get out the door. Yes, there’s a lot of crying from Hallen when I can’t hold her. But, we’re still in the adjustment phase. I feel so blessed to have another pretty chill infant…

Ingrid & Isabel

When you’re waiting on you’re baby to be born (who should have been here by now if she was on Hallen’s schedule), you go anywhere and everywhere to distract yourself! So, for me that’s usually shopping or walking around downtown. This outfit from Ingrid and Isabel is perfect for just going out and about, but feeling cute still (and not like a whale at 9 months). And I know I don’t look that big…everyone tells me I’m still so small, BUT it doesn’t change the fact that I feel like I have…

from-a-casual-day-to-a-hot-date-night

I don’t know what your plans for Valentine’s Day are, but if you’re a parent and 9 months pregnant with an awful cold, I’ll tell you what mine is going to consist of:A four course meal with salad, soup, then a shot of Robitussin, and some break and bake Valentine’s cookies I make with Hallen. We’ll then follow up our sexy meal with some Netflix and a box of tissues (for blowing my nose or wiping my tears if we watch “This is Us). Ha! Oh! And hoping I go into labor of…
