Favorite Things: Eleven Months

Favorite Things: Eleven Months

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! I’m a couple days late getting this post out (Kennedy was eleven months on Sunday) but wanted to share our favorite things this month and a little update on her. This month has been a busy one! We went on a vacation to Utah, our longest trip yet with her, and are gearing up to celebrate her first birthday in a few weeks. I honestly have no idea how she’s about to turn one…

Labor Day Sales

Labor Day Sales

Happy long weekend!! Who has fun plans for Labor Day? We don’t have much going on over here but that’s okay with me considering we just got back from a long vacation… oh and our Kennedy girl has a double ear infection! I think that means we’ll be doing lots of cuddling and lounging around this weekend which sounds perfect to me.

I polled yall on Instagram and there was a large request for sharing Labor Day sales on the blog. So, your wish is my command. Here are all the great deals I’ve found - be sure to check back over the weekend because I’ll update this post as anything new comes about…

Our Breastfeeding Journey

Our Breastfeeding Journey

During my pregnancy with Kennedy there was no question in my mind that I wanted to try and breastfeed. I had no idea what it would entail and if I’d even be able to do so successfully. I have spoken very openly about breastfeeding and truth be told, I have been very lucky because all things considered, it has been a very easy thing for both Kennedy and I. I realize that’s not the case for everyone and before I go any further, I believe FED is best. However you decide to feed your baby is 100% your decision and there is no right or wrong answer. Today I wanted to share a little bit about my story and journey with breastfeeding for the first time though…

The Four Seasons St. Louis

So this is not a post I was planning to write but I got SOOO many questions and comments about our mini staycation at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis that I figured I’d share info here for yall! If you missed it, I surprised Michael with a night away at the Four Seasons for his 30th birthday last week. It was a big birthday and I wanted to celebrate him in an extra special way AND it was our first night away from Kennedy, so that was a big deal, too haha…

Favorite Things: Ten Months

Favorite Things: Ten Months

How our little angel is ten months old is beyond me! That means we’re just two months from her first birthday, which Lord knows I am not ready for! The last couple of months, in particular, have been so fun with Kennedy becoming mobile, starting to mimic some words, and just feel like a big girl instead of a little baby now. Time is moving so fast and she is constantly changing. Fun but heartbreaking all at the same time…

Seven Tips for Finding a Balance With Social Media

Today I’m sharing this post alongside my friends Arin from Arin Solange at Home and Navy from Navy Berlin, plus some other gals as part of Arin & Navy’s fun Summer Blog Series.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Everything You Need to Know

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: Everything You Need to Know

If you’re on Instagram and/or follow other bloggers, you have likely heard A LOT about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale recently. So what’s the big deal? Well for starters, it is for sure my favorite sale of the entire year of any retailer. Why? It’s unlike any other sale because Nordstrom offers crazy good discounts on NEW merchandise. It’s basically a giant sale of all the new fall merch (not items that have already been for sale or on the shelves/racks of stores) for the upcoming season. No one else does a sale like this. It really is a big deal…
