Bump Style: Instagram Round Up

Monday?! Again? I’m still flying high from the Packers win over Dallas last night. Woohoo! That game was so intense, I thought I was going to go into labor. To celebrate our victory, here’s a bump style Instagram Round up! (Just roll with it.) And although the bump is large and in charge in all of these photos, most of what I’m wearing is non-maternity. Except …

The 7 Pairs Of Jeans Every Woman Should Own

It’s all about good jeans, baby.  When I started working at Bloomingdale’s Lenox in Atlanta allllll those years ago in 2004, I started on the sales floor as a “Denim Specialist.” Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? While I sold everything, denim was my focus, and I took it very seriously. I tried on every pair (and bought a whole lot of them, too). So I guess …

Hospital Bag Essentials: The Second Time Around

It’s time. I can’t quite believe it. It’s time to start thinking about what to pack in my hospital bag. I woke up in a panic the other night because I haven’t done ANY of this stuff yet. And, if this babe comes early, well, I’d better get movin’.  When I headed to the hospital to have Harper, it was all a blur. My water had …

Bump: 33 Week Pregnancy Update

I could make this pregnancy update very short and to the point: I FEEL HUGE. THE END. You guys. Second pregnancies are no joke. Whoa. This belly is giant and my booty is competing for attention. I’m trying to keep it all in perspective. My baby girl is healthy and I only have just over a month to go. But geez…the extra weight gain this time …

Crossbody Casual: Bump Style

It’s a new year! (Still not sure how it’s possible it’s 2017, but I guess I’ll roll with it.) While I relish everything cozy and Christmas, I have all the heart eyes for the upcoming spring. I know, I know, it’s like 3 months away, but STILL. It’s coming. Alright, let’s talk about the crossbody bag… I’ve always been a tote girl, but lately I’ve …

2017

I’ve been thinking a lot about resolutions. Am I going to make one this year?  I don’t know. I guess if I had to, it would be to TRY.  The new year is staring down at me and I know that on the other side, my life is going to be turned upside down for a while. A new baby is coming in just over a …

Best Of 2016: Recipes

The BEST OF 2016 series continues! This time, it’s all about the delicious recipes that I totally can’t take credit for, because most of them have been in my family for a generation or two.  (I mean, who are we kidding. This is just an excuse for this pregnant lady to look at photos of food and get to bakin’. Because I’m never not hungry these days.) …

Best of 2016: Looks

I hope you had a merry Christmas! I took a mini blogging break and tried my best to savor the moments of the last Christmas with only one baby girl. It’s tough to live in the moment, isn’t it? My mind kept drifting to next year, when our home will be filled with even more shrieks and laughs and cries… 2017 will be a big …

Hello Fresh Makes Life Easier (+ Tastier)

You guys. I don’t want to brag or anything, but I tried a meal delivery service for the first time and I totally rocked it. Sure, Hello Fresh did all of the hard work, but they made me look pretty damn good.  Normally when it comes to cooking, these days I stick with what I know. When my husband and I first started dating, I tried new …
