• Happy Prime Day!! I’m so excited to be shopping all the deals today, how about you?? #ad Lucky for us, my fave @kindsnacks are on sale! You can stock up just in time for the craziness of back to school. This Caramel Almond and Sea Salt bar is sweet and salty with just 5g of sugar! It’s keeping me going while I shop all day. 😉 #kindcollective #bekindtoyourself #primeday #amazonprimeday
  • Blaire cleaned her room and made her bed today. I think it’s so cute when she makes her bed and carefully arranges her animals! She usually cleans her room once a week, Sunday is the perfect day to start fresh. The majority of her toys are in there, she gets them all set up how she wants and I just feel bad making her put them away! Do your kids pick up their toys every night?

  • messy house, no makeup, and a kid who doesn’t want to wake up from his late car nap... meaning bedtime will be difficult. But what’s so different about that?! 🤪☹️ When your kids come out of your bed for the 1937 time tonight, just know you’re not alone. •

  • If you need me I’ll be here taking a nap. JK. I’ll be in the car, curled up with my maternity pillow eating milk duds... hopefully taking a nap at some point. And I already changed into a comfy tee and some shorts that won’t button for the 6 hour drive. 🤣🤣🤣 How’s your Monday going?

  • this. kid. He just melts me with how freaking adorable he is. Then he will go and say something like “Mama I want my binky NOWWWW” and then I remember he’s just as crazy as he is cute. 😍😝 #benjaminp

  • I’m 26 weeks now and this is how my every day goes.
stranger: when are you due?
me: October 8.
stranger: 😳😳😳😳
I can’t believe it’s only another 14 weeks to go! Ben was born just past 38 weeks, so it could only be another 12. 😬😬😬🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 #photobyblaire •

  • Blaire walked in on me doing the dishes and asked if she could take over. After, she proclaimed she was really good at it so it should be her new “chore”. They’re all yours, kid. 🧽 Do your kids do chores? Do they get an allowance? #blairep
  • This kid! He loves the water just like his sister and they’d spend all day and night at the pool if we let them. I can’t wait for the long weekend! What are your plans for the 4th? 💥 #benjaminp

  • #ad You guys know we bought our forever home in March, after nearly a year of looking. Finding the right home is stressful! We lucked out and found one in an AMAZING neighborhood! While we love our house and love the location, there are a few things that need to be updated. Like the windows… and while they don’t NEED to be replaced immediately, we know they need to be replaced in the near future and it’s going to be a big job.
We are lucky because my dad is an electrician and super handy! But something like windows? That’s something even he suggests we leave to a professional. I’m so excited to be able to use @HomeAdvisor to match us with a professional for the job! They have been the best resource for planning and budgeting this huge project. You can find a link in my bio to learn more about using HomeAdvisor to get matched for any home improvement project, from remodels to pools to fences, they’ll help you find the right match! #HomeAdvisor

Recipe: Easy Oven-Baked Tacos with Old El Paso


Game Day is exciting to my hubby and I for completely different reasons. He’s in it for the game… I’m in it for the food… Not that he complains when there’s food. ;) This week, I made oven-baked tacos to accompany our game watching. They’re yummy, and you know if I made them they must be easy and quick, too. Minimal prep time and minimal cooking, the best of both worlds.

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
  • It’s that time of the year again... you were just packing away the summer clothes and then it’s all of a sudden 80°. What’s the weather like where you live? #blaireandben
