ACTIVITY ADVENT CALENDAR + PRINTABLE

By | parenting | No Comments

—SHOP THE POST—

Christmas gets better and better each year. I honestly think Christmas is more fun as an adult/parent than it is as a kid. I love getting to carry on traditions that I did when I was a kid, and create new ones for my girls. Now that Hazel is two, I’m super excited to start the tradition of doing an activity advent calendar each Christmas with the girls

I need your guys’ help!Which Christmas card should I do this year? We took family pictures in October (I’ll be sharing more of them next week) and I’m trying to decide not only which family pictures to use for our cards, but also which card design to do. For the last few years I’ve been getting our Christmas cards from Minted, and I have

I remember when Hazel was just a few hours old and my father-in-law looked at me and said “you look tired”. I wanted to reply “Duh! I only got two hours of sleep last night because I just had a baby!” But instead I just smiled and said “Do I? I feel pretty good.” Two years, plus another baby later, and I’m officially tired. Ha! Or at least that’s what my under eyes would tell you. I’ve gotten pretty used to less sleep, so I don’t feel super tired, but these dark circles under my

Both of my girls are really good sleepers (Hazel started sleeping through the night at 5 months old, and Iris at 2 months old, Hazel takes a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon, and Iris takes 1 or 2 short naps in the morning and a 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon), and whenever I mention how long they sleep for, I get asked what my secret is. Truthfully, every

Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat

Where is the safest seat to install a car seat in a car? When can I switch my child from rear facing to forward facing? Is the belt tight enough on my child? Is the car seat secure enough in my car?…there are so many things to consider when it comes to installing a car seat. We all want to keep our children safe, but how do

GREAT HAIR DAY: #PANTENE14DAYCHALLENGE

pantene 14 day hair challenge
By | beauty | No Comments

“You always want what you can’t have.” That is so true when it comes to hair. People with fine, silky hair want volume, people with curly hair want smoother, less frizzy hair, etc. In my case, I have thick, coarse hair, and I want more shine. My biggest hair struggle is that my hair gets very dry and dull (especially on the ends). I use a lot of heat on my hair which causes hair damage. It makes my hair

Newborns are so snuggle-y and adorable, so it’s no wonder why people want to stop by for a visit when you bring you new bundle of joy home. But life with a newborn can also be a tiring and overwhelming time for a mom. Some new moms want all the visitors they can get, while others prefer to have

I absolutely love the way Iris’ room turned out. It’s simple and neutral with whimsical touches and soft pops of pink. My favorite thing in the nursery is the song lyric sign hanging over her crib. Iris was named after my mom and my grandma (who passed away when I was 12, but I was very very close to her). Iris’ middle

Iris and I got to fly out to Cincinnati a few weeks ago to visit P&G headquarters, home of Pampers diapers. We learned about the science behind Pampers diapers, what makes them great, and how much thought Pampers puts into their diapers. Up until that trip, I didn’t know much about what goes into making a diaper. I knew I liked
