Thinking Out Loud 6/9/16

Well hello there, everyone! How are you today? It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for some thinking! 1. Aaron and I are contemplating going away for our anniversary for a few days, just the two of us. Thinking a long weekend. Anyone have suggestions? Baltimore is near the top of our list, but we’re open to suggestions! If you have them, shoot them my way 2. Yesterday we had an appointment with a pediatric Cardiologist for Annabelle. Quick backstory- {Read More}

Thinking Out Loud 5/12/16

Let’s chat! I have a whole bunch of random on my mind! Also, did you catch my recap on Mother’s Day weekend? I had it scheduled for the wrong time yesterday. Oops! Thanks, Amanda! 1. This week has kicked my butt. I swear having busy weekends just leads to a packed week. Seriously don’t know how it’s Thursday already! We’ve had some rough nights and early mornings happening, making it even crazier. 2. I spent 2 hours yesterday running to {Read More}

Houston: Part 1

We arrived home Tuesday night beat from exhaustion but smiles on our face. Though it was a short trip, we had an absolute blast in Houston. Here’s a little background on this trip. My Uncle Jim and Aunt Stacey live there, with my cousins Avery and Ian. They come up for Deep Creek, but very rarely does anyone go there to visit. My Uncle Tim, Uncle Jim, and my dad all put names in for the final four tickets, but {Read More}

The day before vaca: Thinking out Loud

Hey there, everyone! How’s your week going? Mine is going quite quickly, which is fine by me! I have been rushing around all week, so let’s chat today! 1. We leave tomorrow and I’m more nervous than I thought I’d be. I hope I remembered to pack everything. At least my parents are on the same flight down, and then there’s 9 of us coming back on the same flight so we won’t be short on hands! 2. On that note, my packing {Read More}

10 Ways to Get Ready for the Week Ahead

The weekend is the prime time to recharge and get things ready for the week ahead. Now that we have a baby, making sure we’re prepared for what’s going to come is even more important. Here’s a look at 10 things I do every weekend (typically Sunday) to make sure I’m ready for the week! 1. Meal Plan : I have started making a monthly meal plan, and it’s so much nicer! I sit down and take probably a half {Read More}

Thinking Out Loud 3/4/16

Hey guys. I’ve taken a bit of a step back this week. I thought I’d come chat with you all, though! Can you believe it’s already March?! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen it’s been a tough week. We switched Annabelle’s meds, which resulted in her being in so much more pain than we ever thought she’d be in. I was up every 30-45 minutes with her on Saturday. Sunday was a little better. I’ve been {Read More}

Thinking Out Loud 2/18/2016

I was hoping to get Annabelle’s 4 month update up today, but we’ll try again tomorrow It’s only a few days late, right?? Instead, I thought I’d go ahead and share some random because these are some of my favorite posts to write. Thanks, Amanda! 1. I’m losing hair like crazy. It’s sick how much comes out when I brush it and in the shower. I guess those 9 months of not losing any aren’t really worth it when it {Read More}

Melting Snow, Benson’s favorite spot, and some baby babbling

Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope it’s off to a great start! 1. Thank you all for the comments yesterday. I was nervous all day to look at them, ha! I will say, though, that I wrote it in December, and made some changes, but that was about 6 weeks postpartum, so things are definitely different. But (like Danica mentioned) if I never lose the rest of the weight and I’m like this for life, I’m completely ok with it! Annabelle was {Read More}
