Football, Dollywood, and vacation prep!
I'm so ready to enjoy the fall weather but at this point I think it might be December before it cools off. I don't know about you, but I don't want to go to a pumpkin patch when it's 85 degrees outside. Shew! I LOVE the warm weather so much but really, it's time for… Continue reading Weekend Recap
Fall festival, friends, and a baby!
TV news, a special reveal, and my favorite bath products for kids
Vacation prep, Fall weather, and my favorite photo storage app
Joey put water in the Fairlife Chocolate Milk jug to get more out Beckett: OH MY GOSH!! You can make chocolate milk out of water?! You have to show Mom and Nene because they always say I'm out of chocolate milk. I'll have chocolate milk forever now! You are the best Dad!! After falling off… Continue reading Beckett Says
I have to say, I'm enjoying these slow weekends before the craziness of the holiday season hits. There's not a whole lot going on during our weekends and I'm totally OK with that. Slow weekend mornings with the boys are my favorite! It feels silly to even write these posts where there's not much to… Continue reading Weekend Recap
A 15 month update on Lincoln
The weather this weekend was SO good! All the sunshine and cool breezes. ❤ We had a simple and fun weekend together. F R I D A Y On Friday we, of course, went to my brother's football game. They played a great game, Tanner did really well + got his FIRST touchdown (and hopefully… Continue reading Weekend Recap
It's finally Friday, friends! Is anyone else yelling TGIF like I am? It's been a few weeks since I did a favorites post so I wanted to share some of my favorite things from the week. Blue Bell Ice Cream - I'm admittedly not a big ice cream lover but Blue Bell's Cookies n' Cream has… Continue reading Friday Favorites
A big thank you + asking for some tips.
A simple side item for most any dinner!
Football, fights, and fun! Check out the recap of our weekend.
I'm switching it up a bit today and instead of sharing my favorite things, I'm just sharing 5 things from the week. We booked our next vacation and I'm pretty sure it's going to rank up there as the best vacation ever. I have such high expectations for this trip and I'm sure it's going… Continue reading Five on Friday
Come check out the refresh we did on our entryway.
A little football, a fun craft, and some sweet family time.
Friday Favorites is BACK!!
I'm coming at you today with another edition of Beckett Says! Joey told B that he had a big mess in his playroom: B: Don't worry though. Mom will get mad and clean it up again. In response, Joey told him that I might get mad and throw them all away: B: Nope Dad, she… Continue reading Beckett Says
On Friday we went downtown with my parents and brother to a car show. I'm definitely the least interested in cars out of everyone but still enjoyed it. I loved just being outside walking around and seeing how much B enjoyed the old cars. Joey and I agreed on our favorite (wish I had a… Continue reading Weekend Recap
Hi, Friends!! How is it (almost) already the middle of August?! Shew. This year has FLOWN by. I've spent some time doing a little bit of a revamp over here. I've slowly made some changes over the last few months but I don't even think they were noticeable since I don't blog as often as… Continue reading New Look + Update
I know I probably miss some of the funniest things he says when I'm around because I just don't think to write them down but these are things that Joey or Mom have sent me while I was at work. I copy the texts into a note on my phone and keep it running all… Continue reading Beckett Says
Another installment of Beckett Says
Each year for the kid's birthdays we hire a photographer to capture photos of them + and a couple of family shots so we have professional photos as they grow. This is one of my very favorite times, but if you're like me, it's also very stressful. Coordinating outfits, deciding on a "theme", gathering props,… Continue reading Lincoln’s 1 Year Photos
Sharing the details of Lincoln's first birthday party!
It's hard to believe that our precious baby boy is 1. He still seems like such a baby to us, so much smaller than B was at this age (unless our memories have completely failed us). The day he was born was perfection. It will always be one of my most favorite days ever. We… Continue reading Lincoln – 1 Year
A recap of our first family vacation to Mississippi and Gulf Shores, Alabama.
A fun little recap of B's Dino-mite 3rd Birthday Party!
I just can't say enough how sweet this baby is! However, he sure does give us a run for our money sometimes. He is into EVERYTHING these days. Our stacked stone fireplace = his favorite spot to mess around (inside the fireplace!) by getting the rocks out. You should see the grin on his face when… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – 11 Months
Sharing a little bit about B at 3 years old.
Lincoln at 10 months
Today our little (not so little) Lincoln is 9 months old today! I've officially started thinking about planning his 1st birthday party but since Beckett's birthday comes first, it will probably be a lot of last minute planning because I need to focus on one at a time in order to make them the most… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – 9 Months
Since I started the last update off with how bad of a month we'd had, I should say that this month has been a LOT better. We knew we had to do something because no one was sleeping so no one was happy. The exhaustion was taking a real toll on me and causing me… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – 8 Months
This isn't something I ever thought I'd have to write. Of course no one ever plans for things to go wrong. After two easy, pretty perfect pregnancies I never thought I'd experience anything different. But here we are. Without going into too much detail, I experienced a miscarriage somewhere around 11 and a half weeks.… Continue reading The Hard Stuff
Silly things from the mouth of a 2 year old.
Let me just say, this last month has been a doozy, the toughest yet in all of our nearly 3 years of being parents. I love and adore my kids but parenting is tough. Kids are tough. Being a working mom is tough. And when you mix all that together, it's just... well, tough. It's OK… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – 7 Months
We are so excited to share that we will be welcoming baby #3 in August! We found out just days before Christmas and I definitely needed some time to absorb the shock. Haha! So far I'm feeling great and the baby is perfect. I've been really fortunate to have easy pregnancies so I'm hopeful… Continue reading Three
Finally posting Lincoln's 6 month update a week before he turns 7 months. I blame the Christmas craziness for being so late.
I don't know about you but we've been really enjoying this Christmas season! We have done so many fun things and I'm sad to think that in just a few short days this magical season will be over. If you're looking for some fun things to do this week prior to Christmas to get yourself… Continue reading Christmas Fun
New and expecting Momma's are going to want to check out this post!
I feel like since around the 6 month mark with Beckett we've said non-stop, "this is such a fun age" but age 2 just might be the best yet. Beckett is seriously SO fun right now. He makes us laugh, knows what buttons to push to make us mad, and overall is just the sweetest… Continue reading Beckett Cruz – 2.5 Years
This month has been so much fun (minus the sleep regression)! I know I say this all the time but he really is the sweetest and most easygoing baby. He gets fussy if we're not at home when he's ready for bed. He adapts well to wherever we are though so we don't have to plan… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – 5 Months
A 4 month update on our sweet little man
I'm a little late writing this post but better late than never! A few little things I want to remember about Lincoln at 3 months. He's a pretty great sleeper! I can lay him down after nursing him at night (awake or asleep) and as long as he's swaddled he'll go to sleep on his… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – Three Months
Now that Lincoln is 11 weeks old, I figured it's time to share his nursery. I didn't intend on waiting this long but it wasn't finished up until about 3 weeks ago, and I use the term "finished" lightly because there are still a few things we'd like to do. His room is the best… Continue reading Lincoln’s Nursery
I really underestimated how difficult it would be to keep up with my blog while being home with two kids. I'm trying to soak in all this time with them because I return to work next month and being away from them for 9+ hours a day isn't something I'm looking forward to. 🙁 I… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – Two Months
One month ago we welcomed Lincoln into our family and it's been a joy getting to know him. Here are a few things I want to remember from this time: He's a great sleeper when he's being held. My goal is to not become a nighttime pacifier for him so we're working on that. He… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – One Month
I've been a mom of two for a month now. It's still so crazy to me that I have two kids! I wanted to write out some of my thoughts on the first month of having two because I was nervous about how life would be when we brought Lincoln home. I had a post… Continue reading Life with Two – The First Month
This isn't really a full on birth story but I wanted to write these things out so I'd remember how I was feeling shortly after it all happened. We had a scheduled c-section on Monday, June 13 (I was 39w4d). I thought I'd be super emotional to leave Beckett that morning and not want to… Continue reading Lincoln Asher – Birth Story
My final pregnancy update!
