Mini Style File — The Little Brother’s One-Tees

Melanie, the mastermind behind One-Tees, is the queen of creative repurposing. When I first heard about her concept, I thought it was brilliant! Don’t we all want a way to pass sentimental things on to our kids or commemorate a specific season of life? Well, One-Tees does just that by converting your adult size tee […]

Postpartum Reality — Week 2

With all the kids I’ve shared somewhat frequent week-by-week pregnancy posts. I say somewhat frequent because I think Jemma got one every single week and Eli maybe got 5 total :/ But, in the vein of not judging my mom-self too hard, I’m going to ride the wave of awesome mom-ness because at least he got some.

Dreaming Of a Getaway

  This last year has been a big travel year for our family. I think we wanted to squeeze in a bunch of getaways, large and small, before becoming a family of six. Now, we’re in a quiet season. We’re hoping to settle into a home and adjust to life with a new family member […]


And Eli Makes Six!

For nine days now we’ve been a family of six. That’s just wild! Eli has seamlessly fit into our family. He’s a real sweetheart and quite snuggly. He nurses, toots, naps, and, well, that’s about it. Such a baby :) Everyone keeps asking who he looks most like — Max or Reid. And really I […]


The First Day of Friday School

This post was sponsored by Nabisco as part of an Integrated Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Today is a day of accomplishments.  For starters, Eli and I are celebrating one week of life as two! I CANNOT believe he is already a week old. You’ll hear […]


Baby Is Here!

We’re so happy that our little man has arrived safe and sound … and that he has a name :) His birth story is both a full and fast one. Once I get my bearings, I’ll be back to share!


Five Favorites

Five favorites to help distract me from the great baby watch of 2017 … Years ago, had you asked me if maternity unders were a worthwhile purchase, I would have said, “NO WAY!”, but now, I’m wiser. And these maternity low rise bikinis from Cotton Whispers are everything. I read lots of reviews and for the […]


Due Dates Come and Due Dates Go

Today, I’m two days late. Late for what? Well … MY FOURTH BIRTH! Hence, another belly photo instead of a sweet little baby face! Except, harping on “late” is actually quite silly because I know due dates are merely guess dates. Due dates don’t mean nothing, per se, but they definitely don’t mean everything. This time though, […]

5 Tips For Simple Consigning at JBF

5 Tips For Simple Consigning at JBF

My very first Just Between Friends Sale was in 2010 when I was pregnant with Jemma. SEVEN. YEARS. AGO. I attended as a shopper, brought Dominic along, and left with almost everything we needed for a new baby at a massive discount. I was hooked. And Dominic was supportive of my new obsession — kid’s […]
