Did you find out baby’s gender?

May 23, 2016


A group of my girlfriends and I are all due around the same time this year. A hot topic of conversation among us recently is whether or not to find out the gender of the baby. There are so many ways to do gender reveals now, and I feel like there should be a whole TLC show dedicated to them. Can’t you see it? Say Yes to the Dress move over! I’d nominate this 7th baby cake reveal and this sister’s reaction to a twin reveal as first episodes. 

Anyways, here are a few short stories of our own children, and then I’d totally love to hear yours. Humor me please, because you know, it’s Monday of moving week;)

We close on our house one week from today. ONE WEEK! It feels so surreal to even type those words because for a long time, we never thought buying a home seemed within reach. We still wait with bated breath to truly celebrate with keys in hand, but as it’s looking, we are in good shape for closing date. This process of buying a home and waiting for closing has not been without it’s stressful days and sleepless nights, as we are about to commit our life’s savings to a piece of property.

As we currently drown in packing tape and boxes, I thought it would be good to share a little back story and some factors that help us in committing to the right home… READ MORE

Rey Swimwear Giveaway

May 17, 2016


I have the hardest time finding good swimsuits. I want them sturdy enough to ride beach waves or swim with my little ones, but flattering to an ever changing figure;) It seems that most one pieces these days are designed to give you a wedgie or have your boobs fall out upwards or sideways. Am I right? Someone please explain this to me! I know not every girl desires to bare it all at the beach, so thank goodness for smart designers like Jessica of Rey Swimwear. She keeps the femininity of a woman in mind when she designs her swimwear, and the outcome is a stylish and timeless option. Also, please go check out the options for minis! Veronica has this suit and she asks to wear it even if it is rainy outside. Bless her.
