• Let’s Go Out for Valentine’s Day!

    With Valentine’s Day being on a Friday, Myke wanted to take me out. Now I’m not big on going out for Valentine’s Day because EVERYONE does. With that being said, the last few Valentine’s I have been either pregnant or unable to go out due to finances. Myke has always done an incredible job at making me feel special on this day and he didn’t want this year to be any different. He likes to…

  • What's in Our Diaper Bag

    I’ll start out by saying we love our physical diaper bag (here’s a similar one). We initially got it because Myke wanted a neutral looking one so it wouldn’t look too weird with him carrying it.

    Has anyone else noticed that Christmas is exactly ONE WEEK AWAY? How insane is that? I feel like it creeps up quicker every year. In the spirit of the holidays, I thought it would share some of the girl’s favorite things lately. Hopefully, this will spur up some last-minute gift ideas.
