My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 3 Update

We’re already 3 weeks into April – how crazy is that?!  The theme of this week’s post is SLOW + STEADY.  My postpartum fitness challenge is well underway, and it’s becoming more of a lifestyle change than anything.  As you may remember, my goal at the beginning of April was to move and sweat every single day of the month. I’m proud to say that …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 2 Update

You guys, I’ve started to feel like Oprah – always putting a picture of me as the cover photo. So, this time there’s an inspirational quote. BAM. So, I can’t ever remember a crazier week. Whoa. Deep breath. With appointments and meetings and a photo shoot and family visiting and motherhood and sleep and all of the things, it was hard to fit everything in.  Still, I …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 1 Update

One week into my April postpartum fitness challenge and I’m feeling pretty damn good! Tired, but good. 😉 This week was one of experimentation and trying to figure out how to fit in all the things, while also maintaining my sanity and trying to get as much sleep as possible. Overall, I did pretty well. While I changed the schedule a bit (no Beach Ball …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness

Happy Friday! I mentioned in Wednesday’s post that today I would be sharing some thoughts on postpartum fitness. So, here goes… I haven’t focused on fitness much on here, even though it’s always been a huge part of my life. I started this blog to help mamas find their style, even in the crazy chaos of motherhood. A huge part of style is confidence and feeling great …

The Sweet Edit | No. 3

I am currently drinking coffee, snacking on malted milk eggs and watching baby girl sleep. Pretty sweet way to start the day, right?  My hope for The Sweet Edit is that you’ll enjoy it in the sleepy, early hours of the morning over a cup of joe and something sweet. (Or healthy, but The Healthy Edit doesn’t sound nearly as cute.) So, are you?? Go get …

The Sweet Edit | No. 2

Another Friday, and another Sweet Edit! So glad I started this series because there has been ZERO time for me to sit down and write a whole blog post, and I can’t even think about a photoshoot right now…so this is perfect.  It’s short + sweet this week – I will get back on track with posts soon(ish) 🙂 XO (This post contains affiliated links.) …

Christmas At Home: Deck The Halls

Come on in! Grab a cup of coffee. Stay awhile. Welcome to Christmas at our home. While I was taking the photos for this post, I realized that I decorate for Christmas the same way I dress. I keep most things neutral, with pops of festive here and there. I love everything and all things Christmas, but I don’t want it to drown out the …

A Fall Weekend Getaway

I feel refreshed! The Mister and I snuck away for a quick fall weekend getaway to The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin.  My dad gifted us a stay at The American Club for our wedding, and now 3+ years later, we finally put it to use. (Talk about #momlife, right?)  I couldn’t be more thankful for the chance to get away from the grind. It’s …

What My Dog Taught Me About God

One look at him and it’s plain to see that my dog is losing his mind. One look at him and for a second you too might think that the sky is falling. All day long, he’s terrified of an imaginary threat, careening toward him to break him into little pieces. He is always cowering, looking up to the sky. Every couple of steps and he’s held captive by …

Books For Dads

Is it just me, or does it feel like it should still be last summer?? I can’t believe Father’s Day is in a couple of days. In case you got caught and you’re still not quite prepared to shower the men in your life with gifts on Sunday, here are some great last minute ideas. Because you just can’t go wrong with dad books. When I …
