COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

I know I say this before every holiday but how is Easter only a couple weeks away?! We have our first Easter egg hunt this upcoming weekend and I’m super excited for Piper to experience the fun. She was only a few months old last Easter so I kept her Easter basket pretty simple but now that she’s a full blown toddler, this Easter is extra special. Bed Bath & Beyond is my go-to when it comes to holidays and entertaining so when I was searching for what to add to her basket, I headed there first!

SURVIVING SPRING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WITH A TODDLER

SURVIVING SPRING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WITH A TODDLER

When Piper was four months old we started working with virtual sleep trainer, Eat Play Sleep and she was a game changer for us! Piper was your typical newborn, waking up every 3-4 hours for the first few months but month three was super tough. I’m convinced Piper was outsmarting us! She started waking up every 2 hours and all the iced coffee in the world couldn’t help me get through the day. I shared about my struggles on Instagram and someone recommended Tiffany with Eat Play Sleep and I reached out to her immediately.

PIPER'S CANDY THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY

Two days after Piper’s birthday bash we left for New York and have been gone for almost six weeks on and off. I have a new respect for people who travel all the time for work. I’m still exhausted, everything is a mess and I have a stack of Christmas cards I never opened. But today is my first day in my work routine and it feels sooo good! I’m ready to dive into 2019 and I have so many fun ideas swirling around in my head. But before I do anything else, I’m getting the photos from Piper’s party out into the universe!

MY FASTER WAY TO FAT LOSS EXPERIENCE

MY FASTER WAY TO FAT LOSS EXPERIENCE

In September after seeing one of my favorite bloggers share about FASTer Way to Fat Loss, I immediately bought in. I’m pretty sure I pulled the trigger halfway through her stories! I had just tried Keto and after a month (without wine or sugar) my clothes still fit the same. I was so bummed! So when Liz Adams shared about still having wine and sugar during FASTer Way, I was completely on board.

DOCUMENTING PIPER'S FIRST YEAR

DOCUMENTING PIPER'S FIRST YEAR

t’s hard to believe two weeks from today we’ll be celebrating Piper June turning one! It seems like just yesterday we brought her home from the hospital. When I was pregnant I promised myself I’d do my best to document her on a weekly basis and make a photo book. To be honest, the photo book process always overwhelmed me so I never did it. Organizing photos on my phone and computer seemed like such a daunting task so until now, we haven’t printed any photos of Piper.

MY STRUGGLE WITH POSTPARTUM ANXIETY

MY STRUGGLE WITH POSTPARTUM ANXIETY

Piper turned 10 months yesterday and I’m not sure how that’s even possible! Every month keeps going by faster than the one before. I know motherhood has ebbs and flows but I finally feel like I’ve come out of the newborn fog over the past month. Let me preface this by saying, if you’re struggling with anxiety or depression please, please, please contact your doctor.
