Truthfully, I was never uncomfortable in my own body until I realized that it made other people uncomfortable. Until I was told that I should feel uncomfortable in it. Let me tell you, having that realization as a child is heartbreaking. After having spent so many years feeling ashamed, hiding every jiggle and every roll …

I am in no way the best baker, nor do I claim to be, but since becoming a Mom I knew that I wanted to master some really simple baked good recipes. From homemade chocolate chip cookies to from scratch biscuits, I’ve slowly been teaching myself basic recipes and altering them to my family’s tastes. …

Snacking in the Summer is simple for me— I want something cold and something filled with fruit. I’ve always been a fruit lover, but most of my favorites aren’t good until Summertime. So, while we eat fruit year round, we go seriously overboard during the Summer. Y’all know that I love recipes that are quick, …

I’ve lived in Tennessee for most of my life, but I was born in California and lived there for a short time in 2014 before getting married. When we go home to visit, I have a list of places that I just have to stop and eat at. One of those places is In-N-Out, and …

This second pregnancy has wreaked havoc on my skin. Is this a girl thing? Because, when I was pregnant with Grayson, my skin was flawless. I could get away with not washing it, and not using any kind of skin care regimen–and I totally did. Because your skin tends to get used to certain products, …

It’s been nearly a year since Grayson was diagnosed with Mild-Moderate Bilateral Sensioneural Hearing Loss. You can read more about our experience with that here. He received his hearing aids in July and has been improving leaps and bounds since then! If you’re familiar with his story, you’ll know that I suspected hearing loss for …

If you aren’t following me on Instagram and Twitter (you totally should be–by the way), then you’re a bit out of the loop! Between the Holidays, moving, and being sick– I have been incredibly MIA. Which, I am so sorry for, and I’m hoping that I’m well enough to start coming back in small doses …

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. The Holidays are FINALLY HERE! The last three months of the year are, hands down, my favorite. From Halloween and Thanksgiving (and Fall in general), to Christmas–I always get so amped up about them …

A few weeks ago, I posted about my recent hair transformation. My stylist, Suzanna, took my hair from a medium-dark warm brunette to a beige/ash-colored blonde. I’ve been absolutely in love with it since we finished it at the end of August, but having blonde hair requires a lot of maintenance. If you’re considering it, …
