HAIR CARE: TIPS AND TRICKS

This post contains Amazon, Nordstrom, and Target affiliate links. I’m going to kick this Friday off with a couple fun facts about me. The first one is that I won “best hair” in high school. This sounds like a super jerky thing for me to mention, but I’m only doing it because it softens the […]

Sleeping Training: Our First Week

At three months old, River was sleeping 10 hours most nights. Yes, ten hours of complete, uninterrupted sleep. When I’d tell people this, their jaws would literally drop in disbelief. I wasn’t really doing anything to make this amazingness happen, so I’d just kind of shrug and admit to being lucky. I truly thought Riv […]

Finding the Inspiration to Cook

At the beginning of the week, I posted on the ‘Gram about a big change happening in our house. After years of eating delicious food prepared by my hubby, the tables have turned and I’m about to take a stab at cooking on the reg. Sam just started paramedic school full-time, which means he’ll be […]

Eight Months

We’re getting uncomfortably close to that one year mark and I’m trying really hard not to freak out. Riv is seriously the most fun EVER right now. He’ll pretty much laugh at anything and when he does, he throws his head back and giggles until he can’t catch his breath. I feel like I say […]

Friday Favorites // 1.5.18

First time typing out ’18 and whew–what a trip! I’m a freak and MUCH prefer odd numbers, but I’m embracing this year regardless.

Holiday Gift Ideas

Confession: I had really great intentions for gift guides, but then mid-December showed up out of nowhere and ruined all my plans. So, instead of a bunch of different guides, I went for the obvious (and fun) one — mamas! If you’re a mom yourself and shop with the one-for-you-one-for-me mentality like I do, you’ll […]

Friday Favorites // 12.7.17

Target‘s about to have some really good deals so I figured I’d share these as my Friday Favorites. First thing’s first —  20% off kids’ outerwear from 12/11-12/16.  There are way too many cute outerwear options (best problem ever), but I’m kind of obsessed with these: Boys’ colorblock windbreaker – this one is BOGO 50% off […]

Seven Months

Seven months just sounds so old! I feel like I saw babies who were seven months old right around when Riv was born and they seemed so huge and human-y. I have a permanent memory of Riv as a little alien newborn I barely knew how to keep alive and now all of the sudden […]

Review: Luhvee

I was provided this free product in return for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Like most people these days, I’m terrible at printing any of my eight thousand digital photos. I used to make it a priority to order photo books every year, but I’ve slacked off big time. Recently, […]
