“You say okay!”

Vivi learned a dirty word recently. Of course, I’m talking about the word “no.” Honestly, I’m not really certain she knows what it means when she says it. What she...more

The Vest of Us: The 3 Vests You Need for Fall + My New Favorite Fall Accessory

This post was sponsored by JORD Wood Watches. I think one of the easiest ways to make any outfit look a little more pulled together is to add another layer. Y’all know how much I love my basic white T and jeans, but I could just as easily wear that outfit to a job interview or a nice dinner out if I threw on a blazer or even a killer scarf and hat ....more

How to: Mounds Bar Martini Recipe

I don’t know what it is, but I have been on some kind of sugar kick over the last week. I’m going to blame it on the fact that my period finally came back after a year-and-a-half of pregnancy/breastfeeding hiatus. (Too much info? ...more

Mom Uniform: 3 Ways to Wear a White Shirt

I’m having a clothing swap with a few girlfriends this weekend, so I started this week by cleaning out my closet and drawers.

I imagined us doing the typical mom-and-daughter boding activities: shopping, lunch, etc. I guess a part of me also knew there would come a day when she would start stealing things from me ....more

A Luxe Baby Bath Upgrade

One of my favorite parts of being Vivi’s mom is our bedtime routine. I’ve mentioned before the practical value of establishing a regular routine to wind-down a baby so they go to sleep more peacefully, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t get something out of it too. I often say that, for me, the best part of sleep training (besides, you know, the...more

Too much stuff

Sometimes I feel like my stuff is closing in on me. I mean, that probably sounds dramatic. The...more

4 Things You Need for a Road Trip with a Baby

My family recently went on a trip to Virginia with some friends. I was excited about the trip, but, I’ll be honest, a little nervous for how Vivi would do in the car. Joey and I tried to travel as much as we could before we had a baby, and most of our trips were out of the country ....more
