Birth Story || Dorothy Ruth

Dottie’s birth went perfectly! I could not have been more happy with how everything went! Let me just talk about my experience with a planned c-section. It was MUCH different than how EJ’s was born! We got to the hospital around 5:30 am. I immediately got to my room. Got things settled (got my diffuser…

Dottie’s Nursery

IT’S DONE!!! The Nursery is done!!! YAY! I swear it felt like it would never get done. We were going to paint the room, but ended up leaving it the way it is. Ironically, the colors do match the theme. I’ve been SO excited about putting her room together with all the things I’ve been…

Whats In My Hospital Bag

Remember my post about my pregnancy essential? Well, this will be similar except it will have everything that I am putting in my bag for when I do to have my daughter. I will also include things that I will be taking for her. It won’t be much because the hospital provides a lot. So…

Why Essential Oils

Today I want to talk to you about why I have chosen to use essential oils for me and my family. I talk a little bit about this in the beginning on my ‘Candid Oiler’. Link is on the top right. I just want to go into my ‘WHY’ a little bit more. Last year,…

Pregnancy Essentials

I was thinking today that for future reference I would like to be able to look back and see what I thought my pregnancy essentials were for this pregnancy. I wish I had done the same thing for when I was pregnant with my little boy, but unfortunately I didn’t think of it. So all…

Baby #2 || Third Trimester

I don’t blog much, but when I do it always seems to be some sort of milestone. So obviously today’s post is going to be a milestone with my second pregnancy. I turned 28 weeks last week and entered my third trimester. I honestly don’t know where the time has gone and there is still…

Our 2nd Little Miracle

September 16, 2016. I take an ovulation test because I had a very positive ovulation test the day before. I was checking to see if it was fading like it should. Nope, still very much positive and just as dark as yesterday. I thought it was very odd. For fun, I take a pregnancy test,…

The Nursery + Update!

First off…I have almost less than 2 weeks till my due date! WHAAAAAAAATTTTT???? Seriously, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! Especially now that we are in the month that I will give birth to our sweet baby boy in! Crazy crazy! There have been amazing times, and not so amazing times. Such as…

CHOP, CHOP!!!

I’ve had long hair. And I’ve had really short hair. Apparently I can pull off either. Which honestly is a blessing. I know some people can only so really long or really short hair. Well, I had really short hair 3 years ago and then I decided to grow it out. And grow it out…

TEN MORE WEEKS…WHAT?!

I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by! I seriously feel like it was just yesterday that I took that pregnancy test and got back a positive. Yes, there have been uncomfortable moments while being pregnant, but I would not trade it for the world! I have so enjoyed being pregnant! It truly…

Review: Influenster Refresh Vox Box

This is my fourth Vox Box from Influenster. I thoroughly enjoy testing all the products I receive. Especially during this cold winter and I have to stay inside most of the time. It gives me something to do. 😛 This box is called the Refresh Vox Box. This box contained 2 snack bags of Beanitos…
