5 Things I didn’t know about New Motherhood

February 9, 2017

Four weeks ago I gave birth to the most wonderful, beautiful, magical baby girl – Emerson Anne. My husband and I are madly in love with her and motherhood is so, so much more than I could ever have imagined. I feel like my sister-in-law has done an excellent job of telling me all of the things that are difficult when it comes to being a new mom, as well as some of the wonderful things which I hear much … Keep Reading

Bumpdate – 34(ish) Weeks

November 21, 2016

34 weeks! Honestly when people told me that pregnancy would fly by I was like “Mmkay sure, 10 months of waiting is just going to ‘fly’ by.” But sure enough, here we are – almost ready to meet our little girl! I can’t even describe how amazing pregnancy is – I have loved every minute of it, honestly, and I wouldn’t trade these last 8 months for anything. So, now that we’re kind of in the home stretch here (six … Keep Reading

Baby Shower Setup

November 19, 2016

Last weekend my Sister-in-Law, mother, and best friend threw me the most beautiful baby shower! I am so bad at showers – opening gifts in front of people and being the focus of attention in general gives me anxiety, but they did such a lovely job and split up the gift-opening so I could take a breather. And the setup was so cute – a hot cocoa bar, a headband making station and some de-lish food – it was a … Keep Reading

On Loving my Husband

September 29, 2016


I titled this the way I did because – and let me be clear – this post is about how I love my husband. I am not here to tell anyone else what they should be doing more or less of. I just want to publicly love on my husband, because, well… I love him. I am not one to hand out advice on love and marriage, and quite frankly I don’t think anyone should. Every person loves and needs … Keep Reading

Top Ten from Zara Baby

September 27, 2016

I love baby clothes – but how can you not?! Zara has been one of my favorite places for baby clothes so far – I feel like it has been way too difficult to find inexpensive clothes that don’t have ridiculous things written on them that say something like “sassy like my Aunt.” *shudders* I prefer things to be really simple and plain, so browsing through Zara for baby clothes has been an absolute dream – so I have compiled … Keep Reading

#WomanCrushWednesday: Emily Weiss

September 21, 2016

I thought it might be fun to start a little series dedicated to women I admire or who inspire me, called #womancrushwednesday. I’ve been on a major Glossier rampage the last couple of weeks, so naturally I have been obsessively researching the woman behind the brand – founder and CEO, Emily Weiss. I didn’t immediately recognize her as the super-intern from The Hills, but once it was brought to my attention it kind of made me laugh. The more … Keep Reading

Everyday Makeup Routine

September 19, 2016

Hello hello! I hope everyone’s had a lovely Monday – as the weather starts changing here in Oregon I find myself re-examining my makeup and skin care regimen. Not to mention that my skin is changing throughout my pregnancy so I am constantly experimenting with new products to try to find what’s right for my skin at the moment. So, with that in mind I thought it might be nice to give a bit of a little peek into what … Keep Reading
