Anna James is here! There are so many things to say about her birth, her sweet little self, and the adjustment of having a third baby... I could probably write ten blog posts on just those things. But instead, I wanted to share her nursery! Like always, I used a combination of new and old. … Continue reading Modern Lavender Nursery
Hey, yall! I hope your summers are going well. We have been doing the usual... popsicles and sticky faces, swimming pools, sunscreen, beach trips, late bedtimes, vegetable gardens, and growing Baby #3! July 4, 2019 Part of getting ready for our newest addition - Anna James - was moving Natalie out of the nursery. We … Continue reading Update: Kids’ Shared Bedroom
H-E-L-L-O, Friends! Happy 2019! It has been quite a minute... but I'm back and want to share what we've been up to! We left off last time as I finished the 12 Days of Blogmas, and wouldn't you know we found out shortly after that, SURPRISE!, Baby #3 - a beautiful little girl - will … Continue reading Updated Kitchen
I've been bustling about, trying to get things ready for a family Christmas dinner tonight. It hasn't been a hurried hustle, and that has been a different experience this year. Last year I got behind, and it made the whole holiday season stressful. I remember feeling like I was drowning in wrapping paper and eggnog. … Continue reading 12 Days of Blogmas: Perspective
Silly Truth: I've been waiting to blog this post because it's been cloudy outside, and I wanted good, sunny pictures of what we've done. Second Truth: You guys don't care about sunshine and just want to see the progress. So let's get to it! As of last week, we basically had a piano, one couch, … Continue reading Décor Extravaganza 2018
That's probably not something you'll hear from anyone who puts any kind of time and energy into their blog, and you're maybe a little confused. You can't know how many times over the past few months I have tried to write this post and then deleted it. I'm getting super tired of doing that, so … Continue reading You Might Need to Stop Reading My Blog.
Y'all. Some days... Mama said there'd be days like this. Ready for some vulnerability? Right now my kitchen is half-tiled and my clothes don't fit. I'm washing bottles in a powder bathroom because I can't walk to the sink, and the dishwasher is in the office. I am wearing black leggings in 90 degree weather because … Continue reading Days Like This.
Swimsuit season is right around the corner! While I am working hard to lose this baby weight with diet and exercise, the idea of walking around with no clothes on anywhere outside of my bedroom sounds like zero fun. (This second-time-around baby weight is stubborn! Anyone else experience that too?) I was trying on my swimwear the … Continue reading Shopping Swimwear Out Loud
SPRING IS HERE! (And I am really sorry for the corny alliteration. I couldn't help myself...) I am so excited. Being cooped up in the house with a busy boy and a newborn is not my idea of a good time. We are spending every possible moment outside. The latest "activity": I dig up a shovel … Continue reading Spring: On Scripture, Sleeping, & Sowing.
After having a baby, there is nothing I hate more than pulling on maternity clothes. This picture was taken before church two Sundays ago... I managed a non-maternity tunic top with below-the-belly maternity pants. It took some time to find what fit and I have to constantly remind myself not to get frustrated. I know, I know... "It took nine … Continue reading Trending: Postpartum
