Spring In Bloom

Yesterday was one of those days that I want to bottle up for a rainy day. My best friend (and historic downtown neighbor) walked to the square for snacks at one of our favorite spots and packed down our strollers with necessities for a day out and about. We strolled the neighborhood, making sure to take the side roads with the trees arching over the street, providing shade. We sniffed all of the blooming flowers, found a secret rose garden (truly, it was absolutely gorgeous) and spent the entire day talking and laughing. The babies snoozed on and off and the weather was absolutely perfect. I honestly wish there was a scratch and sniff button and that you could feel the sun shining and the slight cool breeze in the air.   Honestly, it was one of the most beautiful days. The colorful Spring day was exactly what I needed. I am…

Postpartum Styling

Oh, how good it feels to be blogging again! Truly, I did not think I would miss it, as when I slowed down when I became pregnant? I was so incredibly burnt out. I was tired of waking up to take pictures every single day.  So in the last few weeks when I felt the itch to start blogging again, I really surprised myself. Now, along with that desire? There is also a little bit of dread. I’m slowly easing back into cute clothing. Postpartum body is real, y’all. Very, very real. As soon as I got the green light, I was out the door to start exercising. Every day that goes by, I feel better than the previous. However, that roll that wasn’t there before or just the way things fit in general makes getting dressed a little trickier. For now, I am wearing things that I feel comfortable…

Birkelo Pruett

We welcomed our Birkelo “Birk” Pruett into our lives on July 22nd, 2015 at 8:05AM. He weighed in at 8 Ibs 9 oz., and was 21 1/4 inches long. It truly was love at first sight. The pregnancy was a long and hard one, to be honest. We found out early on that I had something called polyhydramnios. This basically meant that I had an increased amount of amniotic fluid. And if you are trying to stay svelte and beautiful whilst pregnant? Polyhydramnios is not really something you want to have.  Near the end, I was so swollen I hardly recognized myself! That being said, I made the mistake of going home and googling polyhydramnios and found out that sometimes it is caused by a congenital birth defect. We did not do genetic testing, because we knew we would love our baby either way.  So at that point, we were left to wait until…

Bougenvilla Stripes

The weather in LA last week was just short of perfection. A little on the hot side, but otherwise? Just lovely. Sunday morning, Chad promised to take me to one of my favorite cafes for brunch. He took me there on a breakfast date a few years ago, when I first went to visit him in LA. Not only does it have delicious food, it is set back in a little garden jungle oasis. Outdoor seating + pancakes? Makes for a happy girl. I wore this lovely dress to brunch and then on our long trek home later that day. It is quite honestly the most comfortable maxi dress I have ever owned. I sized up so I could wear it into the Spring with this growing bump! It’s a little big on me now, but it is so cozy and I received so many compliments on it all day…
