#MamaSummerBucketList

As I was compiling our family summer bucket list over the weekend, I kept thinking of a few things here and there that I’d like to do or that I’d like to get done myself.  And I thought, “you know what?  We are going to have an awesome summer with all these fun things to do together as a family.  But mama has some things to do too! I think I need my own summer bucket list!”  And with that, the #MamaSummerBucketList was[Read more]

SUMMER. EVER!! We had a great end to the school year and a great weekend.   On Friday, the kids all had their last day parties, and I was so proud of[Read more]

Birthday Weekend Recap

Hello Friends!  I hope you are coming off a restful weekend and are ready to take on this LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!  I am ready to knock out these last five days, but we had a busy and fun birthday weekend and very little rest!  Last week was SO BUSY and this week will be SO BUSY, and I don’t feel like I have posted much on social media, so I thought I’d do a bit of a recap of[Read more]

10 Swimsuits + Coverups

So, swimsuit season is here.  And *confession time,* as much as I love the beach and love the pool, I am not excited about trying on swimsuits this year.  I didn’t get any new suits last year since we went to Disney World instead of the beach, so I already know I need a few new ones this year, and am really dreading it!  But at least there are FAR more one piece and tankini options than ever before, and[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Gracie Girl!

Seven years ago today, we were blessed with our sweet little six-pound Grayson Caroline.  She is a free-spirit, the sweetest little soul, a wild card, a nurturer and lover, a natural caregiver, a doting sister, and happiness embodied in child form.  Over the last seven years, we’ve learned so much from our second born, and I thought I’d just share some of the highlights today.  Happy Birthday, my girl, you have filled our lives with sunshine and shopkins and we have[Read more]

Summer Dresses + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I was sufficiently spoiled with coffee in bed (perfect for me- I don’t eat first thing in the morning), sweet homemade cards and gifts, a lovely morning in church, a relaxing day (and time for sewing for me!!), and a delicious dinner of some of my favorites made with love by my favorites!  It was such a nice day and I am blessed beyond anything I deserve. And now that[Read more]

May Fashion Obsessions

I posted about my Spring fashion must-haves back in March, but this season is just full of the cutest styles that I can’t get enough!  Here are a few obsessions as of late… I love this cute and roomy short sleeved ruffle dress.  I would throw it on to run to the store or wear on the weekends.  These are the kinds of dresses that I just need a ton of, just for all those in-between days, especially during the[Read more]

To All the Moms on Mother’s Day

Ten years ago this weekend, I had the worst Mother’s Day of my life.  A month prior, I saw those two blue lines on a pregnancy test, and started plotting and planning about how my life was about to change with a new baby and motherhood looming.  Then all hopes and dreams were dashed in a sterile doctor’s office, as I saw the baby but heard no heartbeat.  And two days before Mother’s Day, 2008, I was in the hospital[Read more]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide + Weekly Meal Plan

Has Mother’s Day snuck up on you too?  Can you believe it’s less than a week away?!  Well, never fear, I am the queen of the last minute gift!  I am the worst at having the greatest gift-giving intentions, and then, uh-oh, it’s three days before the big day and I haven’t bought a thing.  So if you’ve procrastinated too, I have some great gift ideas that you can order this week and have in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday.[Read more]

What I Wore

Dare I say it… but has spring finally sprung??  This spring has seemed unusually unpredictable, but every year the weather isn’t consistently warm until mid-May.  But at least that means we’re getting close!  And just give me a couple of 85 degree days in a row, and I’ll be whining about how hot it is! #neversatisfied I am so happy to finally be getting out the dresses and sandals, though!  Here’s a look at a few things I’ve been wearing lately…[Read more]
