• Road Trip/Lagoon

    Okay everyone. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve updated you all, but I’ve been busy soaking in the summer with my 1 year old! This summer was 100% different than last summer. Oliver loves being outside, swimming, throwing rocks in the lake, you name it. And I won’t lie, it’s been pretty hard for me to stay inside too. We’ve been busy exploring the world and tackling life with a one year old. Two of the major things we tackled this summer was a road trip as well as an amusement park. Road trips with Oliver last year were easy, we just plopped him in his seat…

  • Oliver’s 1st Birthday

    I’m getting behind on what’s going on with us, so this post is a whole month late. The weather has been so nice that in our spare time I like to be outside instead of inside on the computer. So don’t take my whole “a post every 2 weeks” thing to seriously for the fun summer months. Last month my baby turned 1! We didn’t do some big party for him. Some people do, and that’s totally fine. But we just didn’t see the point of going all out for a party he won’t remember. I wanted to share some of what I did do to celebrate his big day…

  • Self Love

    You guys. I have been feeling good lately. Like really good. So I decided to try and get motivational for you all and try and make you feel a bit more confident and in love with yourself. I don’t mean in some creepy way. But I bet you’ve all heard that saying that you can’t really love someone else until you learn to love yourself. I believe that you can love someone at any time, but once you start loving yourself, your love for that other person will only grow and be even deeper. I believe this because I’ve felt it in the last few weeks for myself and it’s…

  • Not A New Year’s Resolution

    With the New Year, I think a lot of people feel the need to come up with a resolution of some sort. To me, resolutions don’t work. We all kind of know that don’t we? How many jokes and memes have you seen about not keeping a New Years resolution longer than a week, tons right? There’s a reason for that, it’s because it’s the truth. I don’t want to discourage anyone from keeping their New Year’s resolution, but this is my take on a better way to improve yourself year to year. I was curious where the New Year’s resolution tradition even came from. So I did some googling.…

  • Stay At Home Mom Routine

    If you read my Christmas post, you know how excited I was to celebrate Oliver’s first Christmas. Well, fate had other things in mind and Christmas Eve I got the stomach flu. I spent basically all of Christmas day on the couch asleep, which left Mauricio taking care of Oliver pretty much by himself. I guess we were lucky that it happened on Christmas and Mauricio was off all day, if Mauricio was at work I really don’t know what I would have done. Taking care of Olivers every need left Mauricio with a whole new understanding of what it’s like to take care of him all day and night.…

  • Christmas

    It’s Christmas time!! I am so ridiculously excited for Christmas with my baby, so I thought it would be fun to share some of my Christmas traditions growing up and some of the traditions I am starting with my little family. My dad told me a story last Christmas while I was pregnant and it almost made me cry with excitement, so I think it’s worth a share here. Years ago he had some friends who weren’t sure if they wanted kids or not. While talking with my dad they asked him how your life changes when you have kids, and one of the things he told them will warm…
