Why SAHMs Need a Schedule

I always dreamed of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would imagine what an amazing homemaker I would be one day. I could picture it: me standing in a spotless kitchen, pulling a pan of cinnamon rolls out of the oven, a rosy-cheeked baby snoozing in the corner. Ah, what a beautiful life it would be. Now that I am a…

Introducing the $75/Week Grocery Challenge!

As I checked out the groceries, I watched the number rise higher and higher. I had hoped to spend $75. I had planned on spending $100. And here I was, spending $150. We eat a lot of good food. We buy a lot of chicken, meat, cheese, veggies, and fruit. I make my own bread, so we buy copious amounts…

5 Things To Do Before You Start Potty Training Your Child

I successfully potty trained my two-year-old in less than a week. But boy do I wish I knew then what I know now. If I would have been a little better prepared, than perhaps I wouldn’t have had to peel myself up off the floor at the end of the first grueling day–hungry, a bit teary-eyed, and in need of…

Why Does My Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree Have Brown Spots?

Not long ago, I was right where you are: sitting at my laptop, googling: why does my fiddle leaf fig tree have brown spots?! I have long been a fan of the gorgeous FLF. Who isn’t? It’s the darling of the internet right now: it’s popping up in magazine spreads and within Instagram squares. I love FLFs, but I couldn’t…

Answering Your VBAC Questions

I’ve received so many questions (many via my Instagram account) about my VBAC experience, and so I put together this post to answer them! It’s a bit lengthy, but I wanted to give each question the best answer I possibly could. Enjoy! How did a VBAC feel compared to a C-section? Honestly, they were both tough, but in different ways….

My Successful VBAC Induction Birth Story

Warning: this is a birth story, and I kept it very real, including all the rather gritty aspects of birth. Proceed at your own risk! It is also very long. So you might want to warm up your coffee before you begin. 😉 We walked into the hospital: my eyes red from crying, my husband on crutches, and my Mom…

40 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

I have put off writing this post all week, because I had no idea if I would actually be making it to my due date or not! But I am writing this at 3:00 pm the day before, and I would say it is a pretty good bet that I’ll still be pregnant tomorrow (update: I am posting this on…

39 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Another week down! It is so insane to me that I have so few bumpdates left to share with you. This could be my last bumpdate–or I might have a 40 Week, or even a 41 Week Bumpdate as well. Who knows! I’ve felt really good this week, and very energetic. When I was lying awake one night at the…

38 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

So this is 38 Weeks! I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that we will have a newborn (plus a toddler) within the next few weeks! So crazy! I’ve been feeling a lot better than last week, for which I am grateful. I felt so miserable last week that I just couldn’t help but wonder if this was just…

37 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Disbelief. I can’t believe that I am 37 weeks pregnant already. I can’t believe that I’ve reached the point where I can actually start watching for signs of labor. I can’t believe I’ll be holding a newborn in a few weeks, and that my VBAC journey will have drawn to a close. It feels so surreal! With my first baby,…
