Matchbooks

I love walking through antique stores. I'll admit, it was my least favorite thing to do as a child. The smell was awful. Not to mention my allergies with all the dust. It was never a pleasant experience. But now, I love it. I like unique things. While we live in a cookie cutter neighborhood, both my husband and I would rather live in a historic downtown or an old farm house. Something old, with character. My husband  took our family on a surprise trip to a local antique shop. Yes, we … [Read more...]

Mommy Hair

Gone are the days of being able to spend hours getting ready each morning. Even on days when I actually get to shower, my hair goes up. Usually it's this messy half ponytail, half bun looking thing. It's not even the cute "messy" that looks like I'm ready for a night on the town after sunbathing at the beach all day. It's more like the "I just rolled out of bed, I have no idea what you might find in my hair, I really did shower today" look. Also known as Mommy Hair. Which is really just … [Read more...]

Hold Me Close Nursing Scarf Feature

I don't know about you, but I am loving scarves these days. They just help me feel put together when we go out, even if my other accessories are spit-up and food stains from being a napkin for my littles. When my friend texted me asking me about nursing scarves, I had to do a quick search. What a great idea! I was always leaving my nursing cover at the house by accident. I would go to put it in the diaper bag and get sidetracked putting on shoes or changing diapers. Plus it was just something … [Read more...]

Family Date Night Feature

Thank you to Pop Secret for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. Intentional. That is my word for this year. In this season of littles, it is easy to simply just try to get through the day and live for bedtime. But those aren't the memories I want my children to have. I don't want them to think that I rush to put them in bed so I can have a party while they sleep. I want to treasure this time. Being intentional with the days that I do have them in my care. Soon enough, … [Read more...]

Empty Yellow Sign, attention and alert sign.

I live in my own little happy world. Maybe I should say I live in a bubble. I rarely watch the news. Unless the information shows up on my Facebook Newsfeed, I miss it. In a way this is good because a lot of news stories are heartbreaking. We live in a cruel broken world. But I don't want my children to suffer harm because I never thought anything would happen to us. While I don't want to expose my children to the ugliness of the world, it is my job as their Mama to keep them safe. … [Read more...]

Cold Stone Creamery Feature

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cold Stone Creamery. All opinions are 100% mine. One of the things that I LOVE about Summer is the opportunity to have Family Date Nights. My husband has a crazy work schedule and doesn't usually get home until late in the evening. During the Summer, he still gets home late, but there is still sunlight. It provides the perfect opportunity to go outside as a family and spend time together. What do my children ask for all the time when this … [Read more...]
