introducing everly grace

I can't believe I'm only getting around to writing this now, but I've been fully immersed in our newest little lady - Everly Grace has arrived!  I went into labor on Saturday afternoon and gave birth to Everly at 3:05 on Sunday morning. My beautiful girl weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz and was [...]

family memory wall

I have been pretty slow at decorating our house - yes, the house we moved into nearly 2 years ago! I never really know exactly what I'm looking for and would rather slowly fill the space around me with things I truly love. Our family has had so many big moments in the past 3 years [...]

As a stay at home mom, my days usually revolve around Eleanor - trips to the library and kids' gym, playing doll house, doing puzzles, and lot and LOTS of reading! I made a resolution this year to spend more time reading for my own enjoyment. Now, I love reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear just [...]

what’s in my bag

What's in my bag at any given moment can tell you a lot about what's going on in my life. Before kids, I carried a normal, manageable sized purse stocked with only the essentials. Then Eleanor came along, and that cute purse was replaced by a HUGE diaper bag (which I loved by the way) filled [...]

busy mom skincare routine

busy mom skincare routine

I'm guessing I'm not going to be the first (or the last) mom to admit that my personal care routine has severely suffered since becoming a parent. At the end of a long day, my teeth get brushed, my contacts get taken out, and anything else is considered gravy. That is, until I met with [...]

sweet and salty cravings

honey roasted chocolate almond bark

This weekend I had the ultimate craving for something sweet and salty, but my motivation in the kitchen was at an all-time low (#pregnantproblems). Luckily inspiration struck, and I was able to whip up some delicious chocolate bark in no time flat! Blue Diamond sent me a package of their awesome honey flavored almonds to try [...]

Hello and HAPPY Monday! For those of you wondering, YES - I'm still pregnant ;) We have definitely had baby on the brain though! Just look at Jeff and Eleanor with their hands full... It was a dreary weekend here in Omaha. We had so much wind and rain that our driveway looked SNOW covered from [...]

bumpdate: 38 weeks

38 week pregnant baby belly

It's Friday! And hopefully my last "bumpdate!" I'm 38 weeks today with our little lady, and I'm feeling awesome! I honestly have no complaints except that I'm getting REALLY impatient to meet my baby. I would really love to give her hugs and kisses rather than carry her in my belly at this point ;) [...]
