Notes from Home: 2 Minute DIY Wall Art for a $1.00

As I was leaving Michaels the other day, I couldn’t help be inspired by this beautiful doily: Of course finding this led me to the scrapbook paper aisle! Blue was my paper color choice. I took my picture frame looking to be updated, cut the scrape book paper to size, and placed the doily in […]

If the Cup Fits

If you’re like me, finding a bra has proven to be quite difficult- and finding a nursing bra is seemingly impossible. I want something comfortable, flattering and gives me shape. Am I asking too much? I jumped at the opportunity to visit La Lingerie in search for that bra. Why appointment only? We believe every woman deserves and needs private attention to find her […]

Easy Toddler Boredom Buster Activity

I have a confession to make: I am a magazine hoarder. There are piles and piles throughout my house and I almost never, I mean never, throw a magazine away. I love flipping through them when I have a free moment (which pretty much never happens anymore) and I love using them for home decorating […]

Jab Cross Jab

As a new mom I have mother’s guilt. I find it hard after being at work all day to hit the gym. When we get home from daycare I don’t want to turn around and drop her off at a gym daycare,  I want to spend time with her. Instead we are taking full advantage […]

I sit. Waiting for the phone to ring. Waiting to hear from my 5-year-old’s doctor. Waiting to find out if she will undergo yet another surgery. Waiting to hear what our future holds. Like 15 surgeries in 5 years isn’t enough. My heart beats heavier as I mentally run through potential complications of the potential […]
