    Luke’s 10 Month Update

    Whew – it’s been a while since I’ve posted here! This season of life has been so busy, crazy, and fun, but with working full time and trying to spend every other minute possible with Luke and Blake, the blog has 100% taken a backseat. And I needed the break – writing here is definitely a release for me, but choosing quality time with Blake or extra zzz’s has been what I needed to focus on when I did have any free time after Luke was asleep. All that to say…I’m back with an update post on Luke! I feel like SO much has happened in the past two months…

    The 5 Cookbooks We Reach For Over & Over

    I consider myself a pretty lucky lady because my husband, Blake, loves to cook and therefore does the majority of cooking in our household! I enjoy the meal planning and shopping aspect, but after a long day of work the last thing I want to do is cook an entire meal and then clean up all the dishes…ya feel me?? If it were up to me, I’d probably end up eating cereal or chips & salsa most nights, so I seriously am counting my blessings over here. However, I will say that when we have more time and can make a fun date night out of it (think a glass…

    Weekend Update – Labor Day Weekend

    Hi, friends! I hope everyone had a great long weekend. It was so nice to have an extra day to spend at home with family – but it went by so quickly! We’re doing a few things around the house tonight and getting ready for a short week this week. This recap is brought to you by Instagram stories because apparently I didn’t take any other pictures most of the weekend 🙂 Blake had a fantasy football draft event with his friends Friday night, so I stayed home with Luke and had a night to myself after he went to bed. I made some cheese-less pizza (I swear it’s better…

    10 Tips for Returning to Work after Maternity Leave

    I have a coworker who will be returning from maternity leave soon and she recently reached out asking for some tips on how to prepare. As I was responding to her email, I figured I’d turn it into a blog post as well for any other new moms or moms-to-be out there! I went through so many emotions during my maternity leave…your hormones are WACKO and you are running on such little sleep that some days I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it to the end of the day! And then at the same time, you are soaking up precious memories with a teeny tiny human and…

    Weekend Recap – 8/20

    Happy Monday, Friends! It’s a gray day here in Georgia, but we had really nice weather all weekend, so I can’t complain too much. I’m kicking this week off with a Fantasy Football draft even with some of my girlfriends and I can’t wait to catch up with them! My husband and his group of friends have had a fantasy football league since college and all the girls used to complain when they would talk about it/spend all day Sunday watching the games. So one of the guys set up a league for us (called A Fantasy League of Their Own haha) and now we’re just as obsessed. Well…probably not,…
