Cha Cha Cha Chia

**No, no this isn't a post about the 90's Chia Pets. I unfortunately never had one; I know such deprivation lol! My husband had one though, so I must live vicariously through him I guess. Today's post is all about CHIA SEEDS. It wasn't until the last few years that I finally started incorporating chia seeds into mine and my family's diets. Before then they were foreign to me but I kept hearing about all the different health benefits from Pinterest and other blogs!...more

Baby Reading

Today's post is all about reading to your little one! I never in my wildest dreams thought my baby would be such a little book worm at such a young age! At only 15 months I continually find her flipping through her books! Our stories are WELL LOVED and by that I mean chewed on, spit on, and read a million and one times. I thought I would share all of our favorites so here we go:...more

We Heart Carter's Sets

Good morning! Today I wanted to share a look Odette wore last weekend from Carter's baby! These sets are great because they can be worn two different ways. It's so nice to bring the second shirt in my diaper bag in case of any food spills. I paired this outfit with some silver sandals that we picked up at Payless last week. They are so adorable and go well with just about any outfit she has! Here's the outfit Odette wore last weekend:...more

Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy

I recently saw this quote on Pinterest and I love it! It is quickly becoming one of my favorite quotes of all time in fact. Over the years I've gotten a lot better at not comparing myself to others. Although there are still the occasional days I even have to stop myself from comparing when I'm on Instagram, Pinterest, or even working on this blog....more

Meatloaf Monday

Monday morning, we meet again! When a long, busy and fun weekend ends the last thing I want to do is think about Monday night dinner. This is such a delicious and EASY recipe that you can mix up in 5-10 minutes, put in the oven and be done with dinner! Bake some potatoes or simply cook a bag of frozen veggies and you've got a home cooked meal without all the hard work :)...more

Fall Shoe Love {Baby Style}

Leaves changing color, pumpkin patches, candy apples and chunky sweaters! I can barely wait for fall! While I'm dreaming of the weather to cool down, all I can do is shop for things that we'll need of course.Odette is between a 3 and 4 in infant shoes, so I've been on the hunt for some size 4 fall shoes that she can grow into! Baby Gap is by far my favorite for baby shoes (as you'll see below). Here are my top picks:...more

Clean Dinners

Here we go with round two of our clean dinners! Some of these may not be too exciting, but it's nice to know that we are eating healthy :) Plus, it's always easier to feel less guilty when you have a little sweet treat after dinner!...more

The Trouble With Eczema

I've started off writing this post so many times. I was having such a hard time writing this post because it was so painful watching Odette scratch her skin till it bleed. If you know anyone with eczema you know how difficult it can be to deal with and treat. Most medical professionals have no real idea what causes eczema but a lot of new research has shown that allergies can be the main aggravator of eczema. In fact roughly 15 million people are affected by food allergies in the United States alone!...more

Luau Girl

Oh Hawaii, how I love you! It's crazy to me that it's been almost a year since we went to Hawaii. Odette was only 6 months old at the time and was just learning to crawl. It was so cute seeing her try to crawl all around our hotel room. I can only dream about the next time we will go back!...more

Flamingos, Fro-Yo and Food Trucks

Another fun weekend come and (almost) gone! This weekend was one of those ones I wish would never end! Every second it felt like we were going, going, going as we jam packed as much fun in as we could :) So busy apparently, that Odette fell asleep at approximately 6:08 on Friday night! Friday, we went bowling with Odette but she was anything but excited about it. We really thought she would like it but she started screaming and crying almost immediately. This was probably due to the fact that she woke up a 5 a.m....more
