Doing — An Instagram sale. Prep for my sister’s bridal shower – eek! Wallpapering. Summer is always full of such random projects! Watching — I can’t even remember the last time I watched a TV show. The summer line up isn’t my jam. I did watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on Netflix though … […]

Five Favorites

Would you look at that ^^^ everyone looking the same direction! I think it’s our first family photo like that since adding Eli … only took 10 1/2 months! Just ignore Reid’s fierce + mean mug. He was beyond annoyed that I took his thumb out of his mouth and asked him to smile. Gosh […]

Let’s Talk About Postpartum Skin

As much as I love sharing about pregnancy and birth, I think I most love finding camaraderie in the postpartum phase of motherhood.  Pregnancy is a little less than a year, birth, in the best circumstances, is less than a day, but postpartum? It lasts forever! Once you have a baby, you’re always postpartum!  During […]

Nordstrom Sale Picks As Low As $15

I have very much scaled back my online browsing lately, and thus, online shopping. It’s better for the budget, as I’m sure you know. But, not much can keep me away from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale! It’s just too good. And I love that it times with back to school because Lord knows that with all […]

They make for a perfect, easy lunch alongside cheese and crackers … because you all know this mama ain’t starting up the oven for dino nuggets in the heat of the day! Some of my smoothies have been BIG wins and others, well, let’s just say that the […]

This + That

My big kids are away at camp this week. I cannot deal. How are they old enough to leave for so long? Granted, it’s just day camp and they’re with their aunt in the evenings. But still, I’m a ball of anxious energy waiting to get them back in my arms! Also, that big guy […]

Play Room Magnet Board

Have you seen all the darling magnet sets in Target’s Dollar Spot? Technically they’re $3 … but still, not a bad deal! I grabbed a car set, a space set, and a princess/unicorn set for my kids and then realized that our fridge is the only magnet surface in the house. Tiny problem, because, as […]

Daisies, Gardening Thoughts, and a Lily Jade Giveaway

Mamas, if a Lily Jade has been on your wish list, today is your day! I’m spilling all the details about my favorite bag AND I’ve teamed up with Lily Jade for an amazing giveaway! A couple things about Lily Jade’s Shaylee bag … I’ve been blessed to see, touch, and use quite a few of the Lily […]

5K Queen

I did a pretty poor job documenting this 5K. Buuuuuut, there I am pushing towards the finish line ^^^ Woohoo! I started training on May 8th and this race, the Camano Island Crab Dash, was on June 23rd. I had been thinking about getting back to running, but hadn’t really committed to it. Then a […]
