January 16, 2019

When I found out my best friend was expecting her first baby this summer I was overjoyed. Okay that might be an understatement. I don’t know if there’s one word that properly can wrap up all of my emotions, which is a problem I frequently have, but especially in this case. I mean my best friends are having a baby!

A Playlist to Get Back Into The Groove

November 27, 2018

Hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving! I’m slowly but surely getting back into the groove after taking most of the holiday week off. I’ve got a sick kiddo on the couch (poor bud), but while he’s resting I figured I would finally put the playlist together so many of you have messaged me for. This playlist is a compilation of all the songs I’ve shared in my stories over the last few months. Hope you enjoy!

Five Healthy & Happy Ways We Start Our Days at Home

November 9, 2018

Since our whole preschool fiasco I’ve been really trying to create a healthy structure to our mornings at home. This, of course, doesn’t replace the social element to school we were hoping to experience (I’m planning on writing another post on how we’re tackling that), but I’ve found our days move so much smoother when I’m more intentional with how our mornings begin.

5 Ways to Keep Your Home Safe While Traveling

September 19, 2018

Since Zack and I moved in together in college, he’s been a nervous nelly about leaving our home when we go on vacation and has always insisted that we, “leave a light on so people think we’re home.” He certainly had the best intentions, but since, we’ve learned that this can often signal the fact that no one is home just as much as a consistently dark home can if someone is watching close enough. While this line of thinking is definitely a step in the right direction, as our family has grown and we’ve welcomed more and more travel into our lifestyle, it’s become increasingly important that we take a more thoughtful and strategic approach to our safety.

Life with a Toddler with No Naps

June 1, 2018

This post was sponsored by Snowe.

I’m here to give you the rundown on what life is like with a toddler who no longer naps my friends. I’ll start out by saying that it’s not all bad, it’s just, well, different. I’m sure with each sleep transition your little ones have moved through, you have been forced to switch up your routine as a household. This one just feels a little more extreme.

If you’re caught up on Mom and Dad Made a Podcast episodes you know that co-sleeping was never the plan. It wasn’t something we decided until we were in the midst of sleepless, stressful, frustrating nights.

Kitchen Essentials + Two of My Favorite Breakfast Recipes

April 27, 2018

If you’ve been following along with my recipes for the last six months you know I’ve been doing my best to remove gluten and dairy from my diet as much as possible. It’s been such a learning experience when it comes to resetting cravings, making healthy choices and cooking and developing recipes without. Overall it has been such a great experience. I have felt more energized, my skin has been clearer (my main driver in making this adjustment) and I’ve had very few stomach issues.

All I Want for Mother’s Day

April 12, 2018

Growing up I never understood why when my brother and I asked my mom what she wanted for Mother’s Day, without fail, she would answer, “Nothing, I just want to spend time with you guys and your dad!”. Sometimes there was even a pleading, “Seriously, don’t get me anything. I want you to spend your money on you.”. At the time this felt like such a mom response (and still does). Of course I always planned to spend the day with her, but even as a kid I knew it was important to show my gratitude for the woman I love the most in some other way.
