Summer staples after BABY!

This post contains affiliate links. Having a baby right before Summer has it’s pros and cons. Pro/ I am not carrying a child in the heat of the Texas summer. Con/ I may not have that “perfect” beach body. I know I want to be comfortable in whatever I wear this Summer. I won’t be wearing daisy dukes or a string bikini that’s for sure. I still will be looking stylish in something more conservative and simple. I’ve rounded up…

Home is where God is.

Your home is a sacred and special dwelling place. It is a place where those living in should feel safe and secure. You should feel loved and worthy in that home. Your home is also where your heart is and where your heart is so is your treasure.   What kind of home did you come from? Was it a loving home? Was it a home where a mother or father wasn’t present? Was it a home where you didn’t…

5 memorable Father’s Day gift ideas

This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media. All opinions are 100% my own.   Every year when Father’s Day rolls around I get the same response.

My husband does have a sweet tooth but more than that he loves fruit!…

The time I didn’t want to hold you.

That time was tonight. I did everything the same way I’ve been doing it for the past month. It had been 3 hours since you last ate. I fed you 3 ounces. I changed your diaper. I put on your lotion. I put on your footed pjs. You were burped and swaddled. I put you to sleep with your paci. I walked away thinking about the hundreds of things to do still. You kept spitting your paci out. You continued…

My go to pumping accessories!

This post contains affiliate links. You may or may not know this but breastfeeding did not come easy the third time around like I thought. With Oakland and Ainsley I wasn’t able to breastfeed either and exclusively pumped for 11 months with Oak and 10 months with Ainsley. I could not believe I pumped so long with them because I worked full time as a 1st grade teacher! I would pump in my classroom, the bathroom that was in between…

When your 3rd child isn’t what you expect.

Thank you so much to PlaytexBaby ™ for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Motherhood// noun. the state of being a mother; maternity. What exactly does being a mother mean? How do you define yourself as a mother? One that spends every waking moment with your child? One that never says no? One that always provides organic snacks/meals? Are you a mother because you wear a shirt that says mom on it?   Being a mother can mean two totally…

A little home makeover for this new mama!

A big thank you to Lamps Plus, Minted, Laura Ashley, and Ninja Coffee Bar®  for sponsoring this post!   I’ve been wanting to transform our home a little bit by adding little things here and there.  Whenever I go through a new season I always have the urge to purge and redecorate! That’s just what I did. I’ve felt our room is a little dark with so much brown furniture so I added some white touches with a new quilted comforter…

The nursery is complete, the car seat is installed, and your bags are packed, maybe? What’s next? One thing I always did before the baby came was wash their newborn clothes!

How the 3rd baby changed me

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. No one really prepared me for my third child. Why should they? I have already birthed 2 other children. I had this under control. I knew what to expect and how I was going to feel. I was wrong. No one told me that breastfeeding wouldn’t be easy. No one told me that I might experience postpartum anxiety( didn’t know that was even a thing).…
