NURSE GIFTS FOR LABOR & DELIVERY

Last week I shared What’s in My Hospital Bag for Baby #2…. (Btdubs I can’t believe it’s almost baby time! What!?!?) I put together some gifts for the nurses & staff during our stay at the hospital. It’s a small way to say thanks & it doesn’t hurt to butter them up a bit either […]

WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG: BABY #2!

I don’t really remember what I had in my first hospital bag, but I know I hardly used anything I brought, haha. I tend to overpack because I’m such a “what if” kind of girl– I like to be prepared! I’ve made list after list about what should/shouldn’t go in my bag & this is […]

35 WK PREGNANCY + LIFE UPDATE

I’ve been so bad about taking and posting baby bump pictures, I need to step up my game because we only have 5 weeks left! Assuming she doesn’t decide to make her debut before then… Third Trimester nesting is in full swing– I just want to clean all the things!! I don’t even know how […]

DIY RAINBOW PASTA

This was such an easy DIY & Giovanni LOVED it! It was so fun to watch him explore the pasta in our sensory bin & it was actually a lot less messy than I thought it would be. I’ll jump right into how we made it :) What I used: Pasta noodles ( 2 boxes) […]

TURKEY, KALE & BROWN RICE SOUP

CHRISTMAS IN CHICAGO, 2015

We decided to spend Christmas in Chicago this year. We got a little more adventure than we expected on our return home (I think it’s still too soon for me to laugh about… *insert monkey with hands on his face emoji here*), but here are tons of pictures from our trip! Gio LOVES airplanes (& anything […]

HOLIDAY MAKEUP + MY STRUGGLE WITH PERFECTIONISM

I posted this on YouTube & I’ve been debating all day whether I wanted to make it public & share it here/on social media. I spent a lot of time filming & editing it, but I was disappointed with a few things when it was finished publishing– the quality of the sound was not as good as I expected it […]

HOW I FEEL ABOUT HAVING A SECOND BABY

Reality really hit me hard a few days ago when I received my first purchase for Gabriella in the mail– How cute are these dresses!?!? (Both from Carter’s :) Receiving that package prompted these thoughts… We’re having another baby.  A girl!! But wow… Another baby. There’s going to be 2 little ones now… That means 2 carseats… 2 […]

28 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE

I’m a couple days short of 29 weeks pregnant & I can tell I’m starting to lose a bit of steam now that I’m in my 3rd trimester. Gotta keep on truckin’ through these last few months! I really am so grateful for how this pregnancy has gone so far. I’ve only had a few symptoms this […]
