EVERYTHING I'm Putting on My Baby Registry

One of the most overwhelming things about having a baby is figuring out what stuff you actually need to raise the thing. Companies push a lot of unnecessary products onto you, and it seems like every mommy blogger essentials list is just chock full of cute luxury items that they got for…

Happy Monday! Trying to be positive at the start of this week, even though it's super dreary here in Charlotte and I haven't slept in days thanks to some restless legs and dance party that happens in my womb every night at 3am.  Despite all that, Eric and I still had a fun and producti…

My Garden-Themed Baby Shower

Hey everyone! Here to share some photos and details from my sweet baby shower this past weekend.  When I was planning my friend Annie's shower a few months ago, one of her girlfriends sent me a post to a succulent-themed shower for my future baby (she didn't even know I was pregnant at…

Holy cow, it's already Monday again and it's MARCH?! This year is definitely flying by. This past weekend was a crazy one as we had my baby shower, and had a lot of family and close friends come into town. It was so much fun (and crazy trying to get the house ready), that now I'm wiped! I'll…

Hello 29

Another year older! As I close out my twenties, I can definitely feel a sense of change. For the last five years, Eric and I have thrown big themed bashes for our birthdays. This year, we're opting for a quiet dinner for two and I'll be celebrating with all my friends at my baby shower this…

Second Trimester Recap

It's finally here - the last three months of pregnancy! I know I complained a lot in my last recap post about it going slowly, but this trimester really did seem to just draggg on. Probably because you automatically miss 5-6 weeks in the first trimester before you know you're pregnant, and y…

Favorite Charlotte Date Spots

Happy Valentine's Day! I talk a lot on here about my travels to other places, but not much about my home city. That is all about to change! I figure what better post to share on lover's day than a list of our favorite date spots in Charlotte. Eric and I have spent a majority of our relation…

Happy Monday Folks! This week kicks off a super busy month for me, which after what feels like months of hibernation, I'm completely looking forward to! 1. Eric and I took our hospital tour yesterday in prep for baby! We accidentally parked about a mile away, and went to the wrong building …
