Stick around and you're sure to be in the Christmas spirit in no time flat! One of my favorite parts about Christmas morning is … Continue reading My Favorite (Amazon) Things: 40 Stocking Stuffers for Her
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
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
Someone recently said "I feel like I'm waiting for something that isn't going to happen." Sheesh. You and me both, sister. It's hard to believe that in 4 more days (if not sooner), we will have another person in our family. In all of my free time, I managed to overestimate my Walmart grocery pick-up and … Continue reading Muffins, Outfits, and The Wait.
(I should entitle this post "How to stay decently clothed but feel like nothing is touching you + A few other things", but it won't fit in the header.) I've compiled a list of my go-to, must-have pregnancy items! I'm a pretty low maintenance preggo by most standards... I do well to remember two Flinstones' vitamins and no extra … Continue reading Pregnancy All-Star Picks.
I am not one of those people who can get away with regular clothes disguised as maternity wear. I say this with all sincerity..."that must be so nice". Not this girl. My hips and booty start speaking Kardashian the minute I see two blue lines. The best is when people try to put a positive spin on this aspect … Continue reading Maternity Outfit Ideas for the Transition to Fall
It's been awhile since I took the time look through things other than housewares at a thrift store. Partly because we need "house things", but also because normal clothes won't fit/aren't fitting this bump for much longer. However, Mac and I had some time to kill before lunch Friday so we poked around most of Goodwill. Take a … Continue reading Thrift Haul!
"Why do you thrift?","What made you start thrifting?", and "Do you thrift everything?... I get these three specific questions a lot, so I thought I'd give you guys some formal answers! Also, almost everything you see in the pictures below is thrifted. Let's get started... Why did I start thrifting? Out of necessity! I love to shop and … Continue reading Thrift Q & A
I love the South. (See that capital letter S?) However, fashion here is a little more rigid than a lot of places in the country. It's sometimes hard to get away from skinny jeans and Michael Kors purses (Those are not terrible things. Everyone, breathe.) I wanted to show you how much fun it can be to play with the thrift store clothing that scares everyone away! From "Granny … Continue reading From Granny to Great!
