Last week Oliver hit 11 flights, and although flying should be a breeze by now, I was a little nervous flying with him this time around because he is now a toddler and busier than ever. We flew to Georgia, which went off without a hitch, but our flight home was less than ideal. Our day started at 5 a.m. and didn’t end until we got home at almost midnight. We dealt with 8 layover hours, the first 6 due to wrongly filled out mechanical paperwork, which I am very thankful they took the time to sort out. When we finally took off, we had another smooth flight, only to land and find out that our 20 minute layover had turned into a 2 hour layover. I am so thankful for airport playgrounds so Oliver could run around and burn…

crossbody tie top // cut off shorts // heeled booties // black fedora Let’s be real, after having kids, getting into those short shorts that you wore before baby can be a little daunting. New lumps, curves, and stretch marks may hurt your self esteem and make you a little shy. While I still prefer dresses during the warmer months, I’ve finally worked up the courage to wear my shorts. Courage to show off my legs in shorts came with time, where it meant losing the baby weight and learning to accept and appreciate my stretch marks. I think that accepting my leg stretch marks took the longest, because with the baby weight, you can usually lose it. Meanwhile, your stretch marks are there to stay, but learning to love them will give you a sense of confidence. I’ve heard…

I hope you’re all having a great week! Mornings can be hard, and Oliver tends to wake up a little cranky (how?! after 12 hours of sleep??). Haha! I thought I’d share our healthy morning routine that we have discovered works after lots of trial and error. Granted, Oliver does his own thing for the most part, which I am incredibly grateful for because the mornings are when I am the most productive. Wake Up- If I don’t have an alarm set, I usually wake up whenever Oliver chooses to grace us with his energetic presence. Haha! Having a regular sleep schedule is key to a restful nights sleep and energy during the day. My day usually starts between 6:30-7:00a.m. I have found that getting out of bed right after I wake up helps me have a much more productive…

New week, new blog post. Recently, the weather has been a bit unpredictable and sometimes I am left with a cooped up toddler. I thought I’d put together the top ten outing ideas that we love, plus some indoor ones to fall back on if weather messes up your plans, or you just want to stay in the AC come summer time. Almost all of the outing ideas are either free or pretty cheap, because budget friendly activities are a must for us! 🙂 Pick-your-own Farm: Usually pretty affordable, and enjoyable for both kids and adults. Plus, your get a nice reward or fruit! Go to the Library: Most libraries have a mom-and-me time, and some may even have play areas for toddlers. This is great for a hot day when it’s too warm to be outside! Visit a Farmers…

PinkBlush sage lace dress // beaded headband (old, similar here & here) Sunday Funday (because naps are my kind of fun)! We are gearing up for a rather busy month with most of our weekends full. I asked in a recent Instagram post if anyone had any recommendations for flying with a toddler. Although Oliver has already flown over 8 times, we’ve never flown with him as a toddler and he is a busy bee. Any suggestions would be so helpful! Also, if you have any recommendations for things to see in the Atlanta, Georgia area, comment them below! 🙂 Besides the help for travel, I just wanted to drop in and share this dress from PinkBlush that I’m so smitten with! It is so gorgeous with the lace overlay, and can we talk about the color?! I am in…
