Ode to my Maternity Leave

June 3, 2017
Blaire and Benjamin

  My little guy will be 11 weeks on Tuesday. Which means I go back to work in two weeks… I have had such a fun 10 weeks home with my babies! We sleep in until 9:30AM each day, we eat breakfast together, we spend a lot of time at Target, parks, the children’s museum, the zoo and then the pool! My friend Jackie even came from New…

Well, we went from 50s to 80s here in the midwest and it’s fine. I’ll take whatever I can get at this point! I just want to pack away the long sleeves and break out all of Blaire’s cute dresses and the water table she got for her birthday back in February. We had a great Mother’s Day. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know we…

Feeding a Giraffe

Life has been CRAZY the past few weeks. We’ve had so much going on, I haven’t have much time to do anything (including our laundry). July is more than half way through and I. can’t. believe. it. It’s insane! If you follow me on Insta, then you know we fed giraffes on Father’s Day. We did our usual thing for the 4th of July. Fireworks in our city on…

Hey, Fall!

September 24, 2015

It’s officially Fall and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m most excited for the cooler weather (which just happens to mean layers & boots) because it means we can spend time outside without sweating our booties off! We really have to get out and make the most of it because it’s a long Winter here in Iowa and we’ll be trapped inside going stir crazy before you know…

Summer White

July 31, 2015

I’m doing a little something different today. You clearly know I’m a shopaholic, although I dedicate most of my posts to our everyday life and Blaire. BUT since I’m giving away a $500 Nordstrom giftcard at the bottom of this post, I just had to take the time to do a style post. I’m love, love, loving the flowy, boho look lately! My favorite thing about flowy pieces…

Summer Checklist

June 10, 2015

Since it went from 70s-80s into the 90s in the matter of two weeks, I’m just going to say it’s officially summer here in Iowa! To me, the best part about summer is being able to relax and hang outside. After spending all of winter, and the majority of a rainy spring indoors, it’s so refreshing to be able to get some sun! I’ve put together our Summer…
