Blondie

Hi Friends! So we all know I love to take pictures, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ The top pictures in this post are actually from a Sunday we went to eat at Red Lobster (which I hate) after church. I saw the red wall and couldn’t resist-haha! They’re also good “before” pics of what my hair looked like since it had been months since touching it up. I love taking random pictures though mainly because I like documenting our day to day. A few memories from this day- Callie ordered aย daiquiri (virgin of course), she saw how pretty and colorful it was and […]

When Eating Healthier Backfires

Two weeks ago I started a new diet which I’m really not calling a diet since it’s more about eating better. I cut out diary, carbs, sugar and processed food and was only eating fruit, veggies, beans, nuts and meat. I was doing really well the first week and actually started to enjoy it. Then after a few days I noticed my milk supply took a dip ๐Ÿ™ I’m a just enougher and I feel like anything I do affects my supply, whether it’s changing my eating habits or working out. I’m still working out 2-3 times a week but […]

Baby Jacob | 4 Months

  Hi There! Jacob turned four months last week and I wanted to document a few things before I forget! When he was born I kept thinking, what did we do with Callie? How was she sleeping at this stage? How much was she eating? It’s crazy how we forget all the small things that at the moment are so important. So here we go… Jacob is such a sweetheart! However, in the beginning he was a very complicated and a fussy baby…lol. He was a lot harder to figure out than Callie and was always fussing about something. He […]

Hello World! Jacob’s Birth Story

Well, it’s been a week since little man joined our little family and we couldn’t be happier. He truly is a special little boy ๐Ÿ™‚ So to start off; let’s just say that I had somewhat of a “birth plan” that went flying out the door when the day came lol. I had a doctor’s appointment Thursday 3/23 and by that time my mucus plug had started to come out and I was dilated 1cm. I still didn’t think much of it and thought Jacob would arrive later but by that Saturday morning (3/25) at 6:30am I started with contractions. […]

Maternity Shoot

Hey Everyone! So I’m here, still pregnant…. hoping little man comes soon but you never know. I’ve had mild cramping here and there and as of yesterday I was dilated 1cm but that’s about it. Anyway, so to be honest we weren’t going to do a maternity photoshoot, mainly because we had already taken several pictures throughout the pregnancy AND the best timing to take photos (I think) is towards the end of your second trimester or beginning of your third and we had missed that window. That’s when you have a cute belly formed but haven’t gotten too swollen […]

Baby Boy Nursery Tour

Hi Everyone! So I’m keeping myself occupied while we wait for little man and I wanted to do a nursery tour ๐Ÿ™‚ I really love how his room turned out. I mention where I got most of the items in the video. So about that wall- I had asked a contractor how much he would charge me to do something like this and his quote was for $700!!! Not that he overpriced because it is a lot of work but mainly because we didn’t want to spend that much. So I googled, pinterested and youtubed and finally came up with […]
