My Journey to Motherhood; Pregnancy and Miscarriage

July 1! That means baby #4 is arriving this month (2 weeks from today is our c-section).  I have really been thinking back to all of my experiences with pregnancy and motherhood over the past 8.5(!!) years. I’ve learned that the moments and feelings you never thought you’d forget do get hazy, so I thought I’d…

Pinterest Projects

One of my favorite things to do over summer break is little projects around the house. Every since I discovered Pinterest a number of years ago, it’s been a summer joke that it’s time for my “Pinterest Projects”. My hubby usually shakes his head as I gather spray paint and Mod Podge and make a…

#wiw – summer maternity style

This week felt like our first real week of summer break. No one was sick, no one was out of town, it was just a regular week. We did get a few doctor/dentist visits off our list, but we snuck in some fun outings to the splash pad, zoo, and gymnastics class. Here is a…

White on White

This morning I have a dentist appointment, then some time for errands, then my 36 week checkup. I’ve been feeling pretty blah about my denim shorts and tank tops and major repeating of maternity dresses, so I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to get “ready” for the day and a few kid-free hours…

Casual summer layers

After a few days (and more to come) of temps in the 90’s, it felt so good to wake up to a cool breeze this morning. My oldest had an appointment to get his braces off, so I took advantage of the chance to wear some summer layers. Nothing fancy here, but a perfect “mom”…

Slice of Life – Weekend Getaway

We were lucky enough to have the chance to spend 3 days in the mountains this weekend with my in-laws. Since my hubby, sister-in-law, and I are all teachers we were able to do a weekday trip, but I’m calling it a weekend getaway! We drove to Glenwood Springs on Tuesday, hung out by the…

#wiw – casual summer maternity style

Hi everyone! Phew…the past few days have be buuuusy. Hubby was out of town and the kids and I were still recovering from being sick. Needless to say I felt I was kind of in survival mode since this baby is sucking all energy out of me. So, I didn’t do much “real” dressing, just…

Weekend Getaway What to Pack

This week we’re going on a short family trip for three nights. Normally when I pack I do one of two things: 1) I pack a set number of “outfits” and I end up wearing everything once, or 2) I toss in my fave tops and fave bottoms and I’m able to pair things together, but…
