One Month to Go!

Guys… I am so ready to have this baby. As much as I love my sleep and our time as a family of three, I am one tired mama. These days, I find myself daydreaming about being able to wear normal clothes and sleep on my stomach again. I can see the finish line! More […]

A Letter to My First Born

To my sweet first born, You made me mom and better yet, you’re the reason I love being mom. It’s something I didn’t think about much, and something I never thought I’d be ready for, until I looked into your eyes for the first time and knew it was without a doubt one of my […]

Date Night In Box

I love spending time with my little family of three, but definitely miss the days when my husband and I could sporadically go to dinner, or walk around IKEA just the two of us. While we make an effort to put our marriage first by spending time just the two of us once a week, or […]

20 Week Update

It’s insane to think that in about four months we’ll have another baby, and I can’t believe I hit my 20 week mark a few days ago. This pregnancy has flown by, which doesn’t surprise me. Our daughter is a busy little bee and she’s kept us both very occupied, leaving us with less time […]
