Before I had Teagan I didn’t put too much thought into what I wore because I wasn’t chasing around a baby, bending over to change diapers, or cleaning up messes. Now, I have to be a little more selective and put some thought into my outfit choices.

Summers would be filled with my short, A-line dresses and my cute little jean shorts. This summer those aren’t quite as realistic so what’s a mom to do? Maxi or knee length dresses and some high-waisted shorts that aren’t too short are now my go to bottoms when we are out and about while some yoga pants or athletic shorts and tanks are my go to at home outfit.

While I was pregnant, the PinkBlush maternity brand was pretty much the only brand of clothes I wore. I just fell in love. They are all so cute but also super comfortable and great quality. Another great thing about their maternity clothes is they can be worn post pregnancy; and yes that means I totally still wear some of them and style them a little differently.

I have recently fell in love with their women’s shop. Same great quality and comfort. They are all totally functional and so many nursing friendly options as well. All their clothes are perfect for my new mom style!

Since I spent the better part of Teagan’s first year in their maternity or lounge clothes because I didn’t know what to wear I decided it was time to get two super cute pieces to make myself feel good. Since I now have some great date night pieces, maybe Cary and I can start dating each other again.

The first piece I got was this beautiful blouse. I didn’t have anything like it and I decided to get something that was a little outside of my comfort zone and I’m so happy I did. While it’s a little dressier, still so functional for us mama’s with a baby on our hip! You can shop this blouse here.

The second piece I got was this black dress. I have super long legs so the longer sides got me. I like short dresses but bending over with a now toddler makes that a task so this dress was a great mix of both. You can shop it here.

 

**I am 5’7″ and got a small in both pieces.

  • I typically only share adorable pictures of my kiddos but these roasted brussel sprouts from last night were too delicious not to snap a picture of 😍

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cut brussel sprouts in half 
Toss in bowl with avocado oil, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder, toss again
Lay face down on pan
Cook 25-30 minutes or until browned 
Enjoy 😉 .

  • Happy 6 months my sweet, happy boy. We missed our 5 month update and over a week late on this one but I couldn’t let 6 months pass us by. Beau is literally a dream. He is so content to just be with everyone and be along for the ride. He’s always smiling and laughing. He is such a joyful little boy and I hope he never loses that. He weighed in at 21lbs 7oz (bigger than Teagan at 12 months 🤪) and 28.5in. My big linebacker! He got his first two teeth at about 4.5 months and haven’t seen any new ones since. Today he tried solids for the first time and I wouldn’t say he was a fan! He’s sleeping better but there is always room for improvement there 🤪 this month is when we really noticed him taking notice in Teagan and he is just in awe of her. It’s pretty much the sweetest thing ever. We love you so much our sweet Beau Beau! .

  • When we first started the process of ditching and switching I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. We decided to switch all our baby products, laundry and then it just made sense to do our cleaning products. When I started researching I found that many of the generic cleaners contain ​Phthalates​ which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens.
.
Thieves cleaner does NOT contain those big bad Phthalates. Instead of Phthalates, Thieves Cleaner by Young Living contains two different sulfates that are derived from coconut oil and sugar. These all-natural and safe sulfates that are considered surfactants, which contain a molecule that loves water and a molecule that hates water. That means the Thieves Cleaner sticks to the surface and grabs the oil and then washes away easily with water.
.
There is also no warning that says “call poison control if ingested” so there’s that! #knowbetterdobetter #plantpower
