23 Weeks

With previous pregnancies I have chronicled A LOT here on the blog. And this time, well, I haven’t. As in, this is the first official week survey update. More for me than you. So just bare with me :) Truly, I was so sick early on. Then I started to feel better and hit the […]

“Halfway There” Maternity Style

Today’s post is in partnership with PinkBlush. It’s no secret that I jump into maternity clothes as soon as I can. I’m all about pregnancy comfort and seeing that this is baby bump #5 I have definite favorites in my pregnancy box that I’m always eager to get back to. Then again, with each baby […]

Five Favorites

I had my first midwife appointment today! It seems surreal that I’m back in the prenatal care routine. Then again, this has kind of been my loop for the last decade. I have a solid month left in my first trimester … and maybe a few residual weeks of not feeling well. Pretty much, I’m […]

Baby Five!

I’ve been feeling crummy for a solid month now but that doesn’t negate how so very excited we are to be welcoming a new baby!!! I’m due in February of 2021 which will give Eli and this baby the exact age gap that Max and Reid have. All the kids are heavily pulling for a […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is such a special holiday. One of my favorites. A beautiful time to reflect and honor and snuggle my most precious blessings.​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​ Oh, and presents :) Those are pretty nice too! I usually coordinate a group gift between my sisters and I for our mom, I brainstorm with my husband for his […]

Word of the Year: Pace

Last year I established some really wonderful habits. It’s like I came out of the baby fog and could finally handle keeping myself accountable. Should I have done it earlier? Yes. Am I better late than never? Definitely. Side note here … Still very much in the toddler fog. But I suppose I’ve just acclimated. […]

Winter Run Motivation

On my birthday run I got to thinking. Mostly about how gorgeous the weather was – clear, crisp, just a slight breeze – and how it won’t last. In October things tend to turn in the PNW. The rain comes. The sun sets earlier. I end up on the treadmill more often than not. Which, […]

The Chore Chart That Is Actually Working For Us!

A special thank you to The Buttercup House for gifting our family a set of chore magnets. We have gone through many a season of chore charts. Honestly, I feel like I’ve tried them all. The only thing I haven’t tried is a traditional allowance for completing chores. I’m very much in the camp of […]

My Love Hate Relationship With Pumping

This post is in partnership with Aeroflow Breastpumps. I have a love hate relationship with pumping. There, I said it. No reason to sugar coat one of the less glamorous parts of motherhood, right? I mean, don’t we all hate being milked? I love that I have the opportunity to nourish my baby and maintain […]

My Favorite Summer Dress

It seems that everyone keeps finding the best clothing pieces on Amazon and as much as I have searched, I have yet to find anything I can’t live without. Well, except for this swimsuit … and now, this classic black dress! This little black dress is the perfect throw on and go piece. Super comfy, […]

The Most Mom Friendly Jumpsuit Ever

First, would you look at that fence?!? Dominic is making so much headway! This week, I suspect, I’ll be able to open the back door and let the kids run free without worry that they’ll take off on a too far away adventure :) Now, on to this fabulous little number from Old Navy! I […]
