Alternate title: my favorite apps if you're trying to get your shit together. So, I've got two young children. We are always into something, learning something or going somewhere fun!

Fashion Friday!

Disclosure:  I received these dresses from Pink Blush free of charge in exchange for a honest review. Since Pink Blush has an emphasis on maternity and post partum fashion.  I find their clothes to be the most comfortable and durable around.  I absolutely adore these pieces I snagged.  I picked these particular pieces because I felt they would transition well from summer to fall, and I'm sharing these outfits styled for each season.  I'm definitely on the hunt for a…

The One Thing I’ve Started That Has Totally Changed My Life.

I've made a relatively simple switch up in my life that has been completely life changing and I just had to share it with you guys.  No, that's a lie, I've made a couple changes that have just completely shifted my parenting, my marriage, my joy, my happiness.  It has been revolutionary and I really want to share it with ya'll. Time blocking. I have always been an efficient person, that is a muscle I have strengthened.  I'm very self…

My best advice for new mamas: did I just become a Titus 2 woman?

So, the other day I had a crazy realization in a social media thread (of all places?) Several moms had been asking for tips on how to balance it all, or at least a portion of it.  I noticed that the moms of older children were immediately telling them what we wish someone had told us.  "You can't do it all!"  "Give yourself grace in this season!"  "You're doing a great job."  "You'll never regret more snuggle time on the…

My favorite firsts & a great deal!

I always get a bit weepy this time of year, because both of boys have summer birthdays.  As happy and fun as it is to watch them grow up and evolve, it is always a bittersweet time to have another year pass by.  I recently met a mom with a four month old, and suddenly found myself in a new role: veteran mom.  I have an almost five year old now!  I'm wise and knowledgeable.  I know that she has…

Cross Country Move: The Bad & The Ugly.

I have shared the good, over and over.  Moving has been relatively awesome.  Moderately seamless.  A ton of fun in many, many ways. But this blog, as I love to remind you all, is not about ONLY the good and great.  It is about the honest, the funny, the messy, and the great. So, I thought this morning I'd take a little time to share some of the darker parts of moving. I'm a little lonely.  Just a little, I…

Getting back to the heart of this blog with a new series: weekly recap!

When I started blogging, I had no idea how many opportunities I would be blessed with.  This blog has supported my family, helped me meet so many amazing people, and most importantly gotten me many emails from women and mothers saying they've been blessed by some of the content I've curated. Having just moved though, and feeling particularly homesick, I thought it would be nice to get back to the days of incorporating regular recaps of my week and our…

How to plan a less stressful week…

I have found that parenting, homemaking, and life in general is easier and more fun when we have a schedule in place for the week. Now, you don't have to plan every detail of every day. You don't have to be type A.  You don't need to wear yourself out crafting schedules and plans, but I encourage you to make an outline for your week.  Here are some of my tips for making your week less stressful, more efficient, and…

Birthday freebie list..

Summer is our birthday time, my poor husband is the only person in our family of four with a winter birthday. His birthday is basically Christmas, so he misses out on a lot of the goods. My birthday is in June, Sawyer is July, and Liam is late August. Usually I'm treated to all kinds of lovely things; last year my husband went to Jacobs the jeweller for my gifts, I was very lucky! We have had to cope with…
