Daily Routines and Cold Weather Skin Care + $100 Giveaway to Mustela

I’ve used lotion daily, usually morning and night, since I was in high school. I’ve always heard it helps keep your skin glowing and healthier, and figured the younger I started, the better off I would be. It’s been really funny to see how intensely Cove watches every move I make and how much he mimics. When I get ready in the morning, he wants to do everything I do – from brushing his teeth to combing his hair and putting on lotion just like me. In fact, he likes to put on lotion so much, we have to limit…

It’s a….(Gender Reveal)

Ian and I are so excited for two scoops of sweet baby boys! That’s right, we are having a little boy! My heart is so excited to see Cove have a little brother so close in age to him, and I am so happy God wanted me to be a boy mom. Boys just steal your hearts and do they love their mama’s. It’s so funny to think that this girly girl who thought she would grow up to have the all little girls will now never have tutus and princess tea time, but a house full of little men.…

We’re Having A Baby!

That’s right! We are so blessed and thankful for the gift of another sweet baby. Cove is finally coming around to the idea that the baby is in my belly and not his, but it was pretty cute for him to lift up his shirt and point to his stomach when we asked ‘where the baby is?’ I guess you could say it was a bit of a surprise, but an answer to prayers too. I won’t go into the long of it, but I had some health issues that led me to believe it wasn’t in the cards for…

Bump Style | 22 Weeks

I know I still have 18 weeks to go, but I just cannot wait to meet this little babe. The kicks have gotten so much stronger over the past two weeks. Ian got to feel him for the first time too. It was the most amazing thing to experience together. Although I am not sick, the little man must have had a growth spurt, because I am so exhausted lately. Like Netflix binge watching, just enough energy to drive home from work and eat a bowl of cereal exhausted. Everyone tells me to soak it up and rest now before he…

Bump Style | 18 weeks

Being pregnant is so much fun. I’m not joking. And yes, I did have morning sickness. I am exhausted. And I often feel like my body has aches more than anything else. But being pregnant is so great because you are growing a tiny human inside of you! You get to feel little butterfly kicks at random times of the day, and if you have a husband like mine, you are spoiled and loved on all the time. The best part is, at the end of all of this, I get to meet and love a miracle named Cove. I mean…

Surprise! We’re having a baby!

We are so excited to share that we are expecting a baby this December!!! I have been so excited to announce! We went back to the place where we were married almost four years ago, The Foundry at Puritan Mill, to recreate some of our wedding photos with my little fourteen week bump and ultrasound pic. It was so special to be there again, and to think about bringing a tiny human into the world!
