JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.   Well, this weekend FLEW by. Although, these days I don’t really know what day it is or what time it is…so it could still be the weekend and I just don’t know it.  So, it turns out that over the course of 2.5 years,  I’d forgotten a lot about having a …

The Sweet Edit | No. 1

It’s me again! 2 posts in one week. I almost can’t believe it.  The Sweet Edit is a new series where I’ll share those things I’m loving lately, my favorite finds from the week, any great sales going on and end with some gratitude. Because being thankful is always in style. I’ll also include little life updates and anything else that comes into this mama brain.  …

Spring Style: Blush

Another blog post! Somehow I’ve gotten to be able to work a little bit in the past couple of days, and I feel like a real human. A very tired human, but real nonetheless. 🙂 Ok, so let’s talk spring style. I have what you may call an obsession. You guys, I can’t get enough of this gorgeous blush color. I want it all over …

Everly’s Birth Story

Wow. Baby girl is 12 days old already. I’m typing up her birth story. Pinch me, because I still stop in my tracks, shocked that I’m no longer pregnant. It all happened so fast…and 17 days early.  Saturday night we went to Whole Foods and Lowe’s. I was having pretty regular contractions, waddling through the aisles of Lowe’s, trying to keep up with the Mister …

Mini Style: Looking Forward To Spring With Carter’s

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.” I can’t quite remember a winter when I’ve ever looked more forward to spring. (And that’s saying A LOT when you live in Chicago.)  Harper was a summer baby, which was exciting, too. But there’s just something about having a baby at the end of winter, when you know spring …

She’s Here…

Yay!  So…I thought I would be sharing another weekly pregnancy update today, but NOPE. Baby girl had other plans. 🙂 We are home and enjoying sweet snuggles with our new girl. Everyone is happy and healthy and we couldn’t feel more blessed.  I will share her birth story next week…but for now, we’re slowly getting into the swing of things and finding our groove as …

Bump Style: Third Trimester Essentials

Oh, the Third Trimester. So many mixed emotions… Overwhelming excitement to meet this little babe who’s been growing inside of me for 9 months. Sadness that this is the last time I will feel those sweet kicks. Joy that our family of 3 will soon become a family of 4.  And…frustration when I got dressed this morning and thought: “DUUUUUDE. I’m so over getting dressed.” …

12 (Stylish) Handbags That Double As Diaper Bags

Before I had a baby, I remember talking to my mom about being cool. Like, would my cool factor totally disappear once I have a child? (Thankfully I’m still VERY cool…)  Ok, there are some cute diaper bags out there. But overall, it’s a category that isn’t normally considered “cool,” amiright? I mean, the patterns, the shapes – would you ever carry some of these …

Pregnancy Update: 36 Weeks

Phew. Where do I begin with this pregnancy update? The past 2 weeks have been more eventful than I would have liked, to say the least… It started 2 weeks ago when I fell outside while carrying Harper. It wasn’t a big fall at all, but I thought better to be safe than sorry, so I called my Dr’s office. They sent me to Labor …

Bump Style: A Day Date at Hamilton

Well you guys, last week was a crazy one. The Mister and I got hit with Norovirus and were down for the count for a few days. (More about that in my upcoming pregnancy update…for today let’s just talk about bump style, k?) Let me tell you, after 4 days of fighting that bug, cabin fever was at an all time high in this house. …
