Style challenge recap: week 2

Happy Monday friends! It definitely doesn't feel like a Monday; Z had a four day weekend and it's been nice to have him home. The kids are so resilient when he has to come and go, but when he comes home, they're inseparable. And it's absolutely adorable. We had a pretty chill Fourth of July; all of our friends were out of town, so it was just us four all weekend. It was actually kind of nice after being apart for the past few weeks; we had a lot of catching up to do. We headed to the Farmer's Market downtown Saturday morning, and then grabbed lunch at one of our … [Read more...]

he’s home + happy Fourth.


Happy Friday! And an extra happy one at that since Z is finally home! He had to leave for work two weeks ago, right after we got home from Maine, and it's been a madhouse here without him. So I'm super excited to not only have him home with me, but to have an extra hand around here. I can't even describe the chaos but to sum it up, let's just say I'm looking forward to sleeping, eating, and feeling normal again. I absolutely love that he has a job he loves and although sometimes it may be difficult, as long as he's happy, we make it work. We don't have any real … [Read more...]

Staples for your wardrobe.


A friend of mine asked me on Instagram to choose some of my favorite "mom staples". I mean, no one wants to go out and spend a ton of money when they have a baby just because they're a mom now right? And to be honest, my style/wardrobe hasn't changed that much. Except for the whole "going out" clothing section of my closet... the clubbing tops and dresses had to go. I'm all about dressing for comfort. However, I also like to look nice and feel good. Some people are most productive and most comfortable in sweatpants and a tee and that's totally fine! But for me, … [Read more...]

Summer snacks: easy “ice cream” sandwiches.


“We created our Graham Cracker "ice cream" sandwiches and had fun in the sun with Banana Boat as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #BestSummerEver” My kids would play outdoors all day if I let them. Yes, even in the 100 degree Georgia heat, they want to be outside. I think they're absolutely insane but as long as they have their sunscreen on and are staying hydrated, I'll stay out there to make them happy. And I don't mind getting my (protected) bronze on either. More on that later... Well after spending all morning or all afternoon outside, we have to … [Read more...]

These are my confessions…


  I have an obsession with graphic tees. As you've seen here, here, and here. And there are probably a lot more than this. I love Disney movies. Hence, the mermaid top. I have an addiction to online shopping. When I'm having a bad day, that's my go-to vice. I laugh when someone gets hurt in movies. Like the girl who rides her bike into the car in Wayne's World? I die. I can't even. I need to eat something sweet immediately after dinner. I'm addicted to The Bachelorette and Dance Moms. Those are the only two shows I'm really "watching" right … [Read more...]
