March 2015

Yesterday was one of those days - a day where I had no clue what I was doing as a mom. They seem to be happening more frequently lately, and I've been doing a lot of reflecting on what it means for my day-to-day decisions and my overall role as a mom. I know very [...]


Hello hello! This weekend flew by and was pretty uneventful. Jeff was in Chicago for a friend's wedding, and I stayed back to care for my ever growing baby bump and little Miss Eleanor. My dad was kind enough to come stay with me to keep me company and help out around the house. Rather [...]

It's already time for our March edition of Three Cooks One Kitchen! This month had a bit of a different twist though - I ended up getting sick last week, so Hannah, Erin and I each cooked on our own. Not nearly as much fun, but sometimes you just gotta roll with it! :) Our [...]

just mama and me

We'll be welcoming our newest arrival in just 6 short weeks, and I've been preparing in many different areas of life - purchasing baby gear, washing up clothes, finishing childbirth education courses, and stockpiling diapers. Beyond being ready for our littlest lady, I've also been trying to plan ahead for the needs of big sister [...]

weekend snaps: happy days

Here we are at Monday again! We had another fun yet productive weekend - be prepared for lots of photos of Eleanor (I didn't figure you wanted to see the boring aspects of our weekend like cleaning haha)! Saturday was a big day for Eleanor - two of her favorite little buddies had birthday parties! [...]

bumpdate: 34 weeks

34 week pregnant belly bump

Hello and happy Friday! It's crazy to think that we only have a few of these bumpdates left! Jeff and I took a childbirth refresher course last night and it was really nice to concentrate on our littlest lady. I'm a bit anxious for labor and delivery, but mostly I'm just ready to get the [...]

I gotta tell you guys, I have been LOVING life lately! I'm nearing the end of my pregnancy, and while I have all of the usual aches and pains associated with growing a human, I don't really have any complaints ;) So what am I loving in my 3rd trimester? The sunshine! And getting to [...]

preparing for childbirth

Now you all know that I am not a childbirth expert - far from it really! But with labor and delivery in mind, there are 4 things I know to be true: 1. Every mama is different 2. Every baby is different 3. Every birth is different 4. Every bit of knowledge you have ahead [...]

freshly picked giveaway

It's no secret I'm obsessed with Freshly Picked moccasins. They were Eleanor's first pair of shoes as a walker, and I stalk Instagram for each new color release. When I (well, Eleanor actually) was given the opportunity to review a pair, I couldn't say YES fast enough :) So what makes Freshly Picked moccs so [...]

Well friends, another weekend has come and gone. After a rocky start, we ended up taking advantage of our sunny days and got some quality family time in. As excited as we are about the arrival of little sis, we're cherishing these last few weeks as a family of 3 :) Eleanor woke up Saturday [...]

I always think it's interesting to see what kiddos are into at different ages and stages, and it's been awhile since I did a post of a few of Eleanor's favorite things. At 20 months she has developed a HUGE imagination and engages in a lot of different pretend play - feeding babies and changing [...]
