When I was planning pregnancy related content for the blog, I knew this was a subject I wanted to tackle. I started knowing not very much about maternity style, and I’ve learned quite a bit about maternity clothes so far. I’m sure I’ve still got more to learn as I continue my pregnancy and my belly keeps growing, but I wanted to throw this out there for any moms-to-be who may be feeling a little overwhelmed or lost.
The world of maternity clothes is not as straightforward as I thought it would be, so these are my tips on how to make sense of it all and avoid feelings of helplessness when shopping for some better fitting clothes. Read More →
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and a nice Father’s Day on Sunday. We hosted brunch for my dad and family. It was a fun Sunday and it was nice celebrating Mathew for the first time as a dad to be.
I’ve been loving a lot of pink lately, and I couldn’t help but pick all the pink things to accessorize this blush textured sweatshirt. Read More →
I love work from home days. I’m thankful I have a job that allows my schedule to be somewhat flexible and that I can work from home a couple days each month. The best part about those days? Sleeping in (no commute!) and not having to get ready.
I know that some people who work from home every day find that they get their best work done when they do have a morning routine, but I don’t do it every day and I’m not a morning person. Nope.
I roll out of bed and stroll out to the couch with my laptop. I’ll work for a bit, then have some breakfast, then work til lunch. On sunny days I’ll maybe take a walk around the neighborhood at lunch and get ready after that. But some days, I just hang out in my cozy clothes ’til 5. It’s all fine and dandy until my husband comes home and we have dinner plans with friends. Oops!
All of a sudden I have about 15 minutes to look like I haven’t been sitting inside all day working in my pj’s. Read More →
It’s definitely been feeling like summer in West Michigan! Over the weekend the temperature was reaching the 90’s, and it’s been in the 80’s since then this week. I watered our garden for a little bit yesterday and was starting to sweat! On hot days, my mind always drifts to ice cream. Now, while I have been indulging my ice cream craving a bit more than usual lately (you know, being pregnant and all), I certainly can’t afford to eat ice cream every day.

That’s where nice cream comes in! Have you heard of it? Read More →
Happy Monday! We had another busy weekend. It’s like we can’t escape the to-do list. Do you ever feel like you can’t catch up?
I’m sure I’ll document fun house projects in the future- specifically the soon to start transformation of the room we’ll use for baby. So far all we’ve done is clear out old furniture and make a mess of the closet. We had just a hanging bar and a shelf, which Mathew removed two weeks ago. We were hoping to make some progress on that this weekend, but we decided at the last minute to take a bunch of things over to my mom’s house and have a garage sale… no big deal.
