    Maternity Pictures 

    Pregnancy is a miraculous and amazing thing. Through months of morning sickness, aches and pains along the way, and a painful finale that is delivery- God willing- life begins in a new little person.  Photo Credit : Wild and Grace Photography  I talk all about the amazing Cayla, owner of Wild and Grace photography, towards the end of this post so be sure to read all the way through.  This is my third time around in this pregnancy journey. Each time my morning sickness has gotten worse, but my understanding of how lucky I am to be enduring it in the first place has grown.  Pregnancy is fragile. As fragile…

    buybuy Baby Registry 

    My heart can hardly contain the excitement I am starting to feel for this baby boy’s arrival! Being the third baby I haven’t done much planning or thinking about what I need, at all.  This post is sponsored by buybuy Baby. All opinions are my own.  With my first, I had been reading and researching baby products for months at this point. I had everything all picked out for the nursery, and had many pieces of clothing washed and ready to go. My, how times have changed! Being completely unprepared changes nothing for how excited I am to meet him though!  I am so glad I chose to do my…

    Playroom Update: Herringbone Planks & Faux Brick Wall 

    Wallpaper has become my favorite way to update a space. I used these wood wallpaper planks for a project in our dining room and was in love with how it turned out. You can see the dining room built in update here.  Our playroom started very pink. You can see my first post on our playroom here. I wanted to update for the baby boy we’ll be welcoming in January. Less pink, more neutral was my goal.  I decided to use the remaining material I had leftover to do a little accent area in our playroom. I got these PLAY letters from Hobby Lobby to finish it out.  To start…

    Beach Shopping Challenge

    Over the next month, I signed up to do a few shopping challenges with Christmas Tree Shops And That. I kinda love a good challenge and who doesn’t like to shop?

    Baby Number 3- Just a Mom

    Did you see our announcement yesterday?! We are having a baby! My husband and I are beyond excited to spice things up with a baby BOY addition to our family!  Many a comment has been made over the possibility we would end up with three girls. While, we were not as opposed as some to having a little girl tribe, some change is always a fun experience too.  I’ve definitely identified with being a girl mom the last four years, all the pink and tutus.  Now, I am just a mom, mom, I am a kid mom.  Instead of being covered solely with pink glitter, getting rogue jewelery making beads…

    How BBG Helped Mama Get Her Groove Back

    If you would have told me when I got married I would be nearly 200lbs. when I delivered by first child I would have laughed at you, like hard.  Post may contain affiliate links.  My entire life I was aware and involved in staying fit. I never had to live at the gym, but I tried to maintain a healthy weight. I am 5’4” and have always been around 125-135lbs. My parents are both slim. My mom has had four kids, and still looks absolutely amazing. I completely assumed it would be easy to stay at a healthy weight.  < > I never would have guessed I would go down…
