Instead Of New Years Resolutions, DO THIS.

New Years resolutions… you make them, then you forget about them. Does anyone actually remember what resolution they even made on December 31? I feel like NO ONE DOES. I find it’s not very beneficial to do so anyway. There is a much better way to approach reaching goals, and I’ve just started doing this myself, but I have found that it has helped me a lot. Ready for it? The groundbreaking habit I started doing? I set daily, weekly,...

HEALTHY HABITS That Will Change Your Life

Mental and physical health go hand in hand, so I wanted to share some healthy habits to adopt or actions to take to make this the best year yet. This video I go into depth on each topic, but here are the ones I talk about. Make small lifestyle changes (they add up). Set goals and intentions for each day, week, month. Drink more water. Eat more fruits and veggies. Make exercise a habit. More self care (saying no, doing...

Grayson James: 9 & 10 Month Update

This post is a little late, as Gray is almost 10 months! Can I just say – every single month I say “THIS is my favorite stage”. I’ll probably be saying this the rest of my life 🙂 But really, my baby actually seems like a little boy now instead of an actual baby. Lets see his milestones these past two months. Month 8: -Pulling up on everything and standing -Dadada favorite thing to say -Say mama too, but mostly...

Self Care As A Mom

When I was pregnant, I don’t think I realized how hard it would be to take care of myself after having a tiny human to take care of. I am essentially the “primary caretaker”, which means I’m typically with Grayson all day and that is my main job and focus. Of course, Matthew helps whenever I need him to, but I’m usually fine doing mostly everything on my own. I often get questions on instagram about how I find the...

Baby’s First Pumpkin Patch

This post will basically be just a ton of hella cute photos, but who is complaining?!?! Am I officially a northern Californian now that I say hella? I had to document Grayson’s first time at the pumpkin patch. If you live in placer county, Bishop’s is the best! They have a GIANT pumpkin patch, hay ride, zip lining, corn maze, carousel, train ride, petting zoo, and so much more. First of all, how is my baby SO BIG?! He literally...

Grayson James: 8 Month Update

My baby turned 8 MONTHS OLD on October 28, 2018! He is so much fun, so social, loving, and hilarious. He is truly my best friend, and is showing me his personality every single day. Here are some of the milestones of Grayson this past month: He’s awake longer! I love this, because we can actually do more things. I’m still a slave to his sleep schedule, but it’s much easier to be flexible now that he can be awake...

Classy Camo

I have hopped on the camo trend and I am LIVING FOR IT!!! My style is pretty basic. I like comfy jeans and body suits or tanks/shirts. Then something to throw over and voila! Simple and cute. Jeans: FashionNova Bodysuit: FashionNova Boots: Born Evans Boot Nordstrom Jacket: TJ Maxx...

Baby Milestones

  This post is in collaboration with Signature Care Diapers to talk about baby milestones. All thoughts and opinions are my own. CRAWLING. Mayday, mayday, my baby is crawling! Well, it’s more of an army crawl/schooch, but man, he’s already pretty darn fast and he’s not even on his hands and knees yet. Milestones are my favorite part of raising a tiny human. There is nothing more incredible than seeing your child learn new things, grow, explore, and hit these milestones. I...

Discovery Bowl: Sensory Activity for Infants

I’ve been trying to come up with new activities to do with Grayson to keep him entertained as well as to help develop sensory and motor skills. I feel like as a stay-at-home-mom, there’s only so much you can do with your baby! For me, it seems as if we do the same things and I feel like I’m not stimulating Grayson enough. I can’t take full credit for this idea, but I started doing a Discovery Bowl with Grayson...
