Jumping Into Fall Weddings

Thursday, September 14, 2017


I absolutely love weddings. For the past few years, we've had numerous weddings each season and while some people might get sick of them, I just love love! There is nothing like watching two people you care so much about become husband and wife. Plus, if we're being fully honest, I just love to dress up! 

One of my favorite unexpected twists is to wear a jumpsuit to a wedding. There are so many out there that are totally dressy enough to make them wedding appropriate and as a bonus, they keep you just a little bit warmer in the cooler months! Below are just a few I'm loving for this fall.

P.S. I also love the idea of a bride wearing a jumpsuit to the rehearsal dinner or the after party :)

Pullover Plaid

Tuesday, September 12, 2017










SHOP THE POST:

The Friday before memorial day weekend (catching up over here) was a perfect fall day. It was 65 degrees, sunny, and there was a slight breeze. Mike had a half day for work so I snuck out during lunch and we went to a new Gyro place a few towns over. The town happens to have an up and coming downtown so we explored a little and found the cutest coffee shop that we will be definitely be visiting again. 

Before we left the house for lunch, I changed into this new flannel I had just picked up. While I have my fair share of flannels, I can confidentially say I do not own a pullover flannel and I'm all about it. If you're busty like me (or extra busty do to nursing like me) this top is perfect because it has a zipper so there isn't any worry that the buttons on your top could be pulling. Plus it's super comfortable, easy to wear, and I know it will be a staple this fall.

Exploring Our Area and an Updated Review on My Fawn Diaper Bag

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Mike and I have been actively trying to explore our area more and to stop going to the same places over and over again. This past weekend we spent Sunday afternoon at Wentworth by the Sea, walking the property and getting an afternoon cocktail at their restaurant, Latitudes, on the water. It was a perfect summer day; warm, sunny, and a slight breeze which made it super comfortable sitting in the shade. Having a view of the marina also didn't hurt.  If you're ever in the seacoast of New Hampshire area, I highly recommend a stop by this place, there are so amazing views, great food, and a piece of history! 

I've talked about this diaper bag before (see it here) but I was barely a new mom and was still getting a feel for what products we liked and actually used. Well, I'm here to say almost three months later and this diaper bag would probably be my most recommended item. I love how it doesn't look like a typical diaper bag, it's super easy to get in and out of, has slots for everything from bottles to burp cloths inside, and it's easy to wipe down. I've been complimented on it more than other bag I own and almost every mom I meet wants to know where to get herself one. I will say, it might be a little small if you have more than one little one who's stuff you need to carry (since ours is typically full) but I'm sure you could get creative and make it work!

An End to Maternity Leave

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Today is a hard day for me, maternity leave is over and I'm back to work full time. I don't know where the last twelve weeks went or how time can simultaneously go by so fast and so slow. I am so not ready to spend my days focusing on work rather than giving her all my attention. America needs to get it together when it comes to parental leave, 12 weeks is just nowhere near enough time. 

This past weekend, Mike, Poppy, and I spent the whole weekend just as a family. We didn't visit with friends or family and we didn't do anything fancy, we just spent time doing things we love around town. It's funny how such a simple weekend can be so perfect these days. I love this little family of mine and I know there will be some emotional bumps along the way as we adjust to this new, working mom life, but like we'll figure it out. If any of you moms out there have any tips on how to not cry all day, please send them my way! 

I do feel like I need to apologize a little. I haven't shared a birth story, I rarely post pictures of her, and she's going by her nickname, "Poppy", in this little blogging world, rather than her full name. I honestly believe it should be her choice to share her life and well, she's too young to decide that, so we've decided to take some precautions. I feel slightly like a fraud because there is this huge, incredibly important aspect to my life that I touch on but don't dive into with both feet but hopefully everyone can understand that :)
