Since the moment we found out we were pregnant for the fourth time, both Justin and I immediately thought it was a GIRL. So much so, that we really didn't even discuss boys names much! For a girl, the middle name "Jean" had already stuck (after Justin's late grandmother whom he was very close to),… Continue reading Baby Girl’s Name
Anyone else feel like December is always the shortest month of the year? Don't get me wrong - I LOVE the holiday season but there always seems to be so much to do and so little time to do it! + I kicked off the month with a much overdue "Girl's Day" that consisted of… Continue reading December Recap
I thought it might be fun to share the products and clothing pieces I've been loving so far during my pregnancy, as well as give you readers a chance to recommend your favorites! Maternity Wear I am typically going for the over-the-belly styles these days, mostly because they provide an extra layer of warmth, but… Continue reading My Maternity Essentials
Happy New Year! Welcome back to my blog! The holiday season always seems to fly by, and this year was certainly no exception. These last few weeks have felt like complete chaos, as we hustled our butts off getting everything ready for Christmas, and now I'm sad the festivities are over. Not to worry though,… Continue reading Second Trimester (Weeks 25 – 27)
It's CRAZY to think -- There are only 2 DAYS left in this entire DECADE. Yes, let that sink in – decade. In 2009, 21-year-old me was busy drinking my way through college, most worried about passing calculus and what I was going to wear to the party that weekend. Now, in 2019, I'm a 31-year-old… Continue reading Happy New Year & New Decade!

Much like October, November was filled with lots of love and happiness! Almost my entire Mom's side of the family has birthdays between October and November, and several of our friends as well, so there has been lots to celebrate recently! Not to mention, Thanksgiving is truly the highlight of the month! Ashley's "Desserts with… Continue reading November Recap
Every year as I'm placing ornaments on our tree, I get a little nostalgic. I can so vividly remember the little apartment where we celebrated our first Christmas together. We didn't have a tree so we bought a cheap one from Target - and it's still the one we use today! We had to buy… Continue reading Our Christmas Ornament Tradition
Good morning and Happy December 1st! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Let's be real, I've been listening to Christmas music for the last three weeks. It's such a specific genre of music, and with Thanksgiving being so late this year, the Christmas season seems shortened. It's only fair to start early! I… Continue reading My Christmas Favorites Playlist
