As bloggers, there's a level of vanity that comes with blogging––you take selfies, you share your life stories and you write with the expectation (well, hopes) that someone will read what you have to say. I tell you about what's going on in my life and (sometimes) you reply… but in all of that I haven't told you about myself.
Whether you're partaking in the Early Access or biding your time until the #NSale opens up to the general public, the SHOE department is one you'll definitely want to check out. I'm a shoe-a-holic, so it should come as no surprise that I've poked my nose through the sale lot a few times. Here are … Continue reading Top Shoe Picks from Nordstrom’s Sale
It's here... one of my favorite sales of the YEAR is here and to say I've spent too much time since it went live window shopping is a slight understatement. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is hoppin' and so are the styles. If you have a Nordstrom card and find something you like––grab it and grab … Continue reading Oh, It’s ON: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
I've talked a lot about how my girls seem to never sleep through the night on the same schedule. One night it's Evan's turn to cry out (her imagination is going wild at this age) and the next it's Collins' turn (teething, crawling, climbing... need I say more?). At this point in my life, I … Continue reading Bear Crawling Isn’t Just for Toddlers
This isn't an easy post to write. I struggle to even think of how to begin this. But, sadly, more lives are lost each day and I feel that with my own experiences it's my duty to help spread awareness––even if it's just to a few people. Depression. Anxiety. Mood disorders. Mental illness. Emphasis: mental illness. … Continue reading An Open Letter on Mental Health
I remember it like yesterday: sitting in the car on the way to a team birthday lunch for my colleague and I and having tighter than usual Braxton Hicks contractions. I remember thinking, "This one hurt a little bit more than usual, but this stubborn little lady isn't going to come soon. I just know it." … Continue reading Little Collins is S • I • X MONTHS!
It's true, Spring is here and despite some random hiccups in the weather, flowers are starting to bloom and the sun is starting to linger a little longer. In speaking of May flowers, Mother's Day is also around the corner. Yes, I am a mother and I wouldn't hate a pretty bouquet and breakfast on … Continue reading May Flowers and Special Mamas

It's that moment when you enter a room and immediately forget why you were in the first place, which can make things reaaaaaal weird. Or when you stutter out a phrase … Continue reading I’ve Lost My Mind: Brain Exercises
Call me old school, but there is just something special about a printed photo. Growing up I was always picking up a disposable camera, snapping photos of my life and asking to print off my film at the local Wal-mart or Walgreens. I have tons and tons of photos from my childhood that I often … Continue reading Baby Steps: Capturing Better Quality Photos
Believe it or not, there once was a time when I was ripped. I know that sounds braggadocious, but I mean... I feel proud to say that because I worked really freaking hard for it. From 2009-2014, I took (and eventually led) an amazing outdoor boot camp class by Shark Fitness. (If you are from the Saint … Continue reading Killer Workouts for the Busy Folks
