Hey Everyone! Today I have a guest on the blog, my handsome hubby. We are talking about why we love our Lucky Jeans. It’s a brand that has been around for quiet some time, but… More
With Valentine’s Day approaching, I know a lot of you may have a special occasion planned with your loved one. With that can come a lot of pressure. We all want to look our best for our man.
When putting together a look for you guys, I tried to find something that would work for ALL shapes and sizes. This little black dress is solving the worlds wardrobe problems one body type at a time!
A sweater dress is very form-fitting, true, but it is also made of a material that will stretch to fit. How do I know? You ask. Well, I wore this exact dress when I was 7 months pregnant and it still fit like a charm. So I’m confident when I say a sweater dress can fit all shapes and sizes.
Also, if you are feeling blue about your current weight or body status, one can never go wrong with a solid black outfit! Some tips: I am wearing a large, so if you are questionable a large did give me wiggle room. Also the dress linked is not the exact dress I have on, but I’ve done my research and they are almost identical! I will link the outfit information below!

Don’t mix brown and black. You can’t mix gold with silver. Absolutely do not wear white pants after Labor Day….ooops!
There are so many fashion rules out there that honestly, I’m not sure even exist anymore, but everyone is still trying to implement them. I say join the rule – breaker club and wear whatever you want! Ok, maybe not whatever you want, but seriously, fashion has evolved so much over the last few years, that there are really no “rules” anymore. White is a color that can and should be worn all year around. I was getting a little bored with my jeans so I picked up these white pants the other day and I think I love them. They’ve lightened up my look and have me day dreaming about some warmer weather. P.S. I also wear brown with black. I am a true rebel. Whose with me?
Welcome to my very first Mommy and Me Monday! These are going to be my weekly posts on Motherhood. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m also going to be featuring a Mommy and Me look along with my post! I hope you enjoy.
Today’s topic in the mom world, weaning. I tend to see things as black or white, so when the pediatrician told me they like for you to breast feed for at least a year, that date has been imprinted in my skull. No more, no less. One year, here we go. I can do this.
I have enjoyed the sweet moments that breast-feeding brings. It is pretty amazing what your body naturally knows how to do. However, I am more than ready to have my bosoms back to myself. I don’t want anyone or anything touching them for a VERY LONG TIME. I had no clue how selfless one must be to accomplish a year of breast feeding. It’s not just the fact that it takes time, but it can be really inconvenient in certain moments. I feel like Johnny Cash when I think about all the places I’ve breast-fed. “I’ve fed everywhere man, I’ve fed everywhere, crossed the deserts bare, man, I’ve fed everywhere.” I got over modesty real quick. It might have been when a friend of my mom shamed me when I went to the car to feed the baby. She said, I quote, “You don’t go to the bathroom to eat your hamburger do you?!” Well there you go!

Whew! I am just about Lumberjacked out! We had an amazing time Saturday with family and friends celebrating Adler Kade! I didn’t think I would ever say this, but I think I’m over Buffalo Plaid haha. We definitely took the theme and ran with it. From clothes to napkins and table runners and invites and plates. It looks like a Plaid Buffalo threw up in our house!
On a serious note, I loved how the decorations turned out, so I thought I would share all of them with you in case you are planning anything Lumberjack themed in the near future. I plan on spending the day cleaning up from our big party, because I was too tired to do it after everyone left! Our hearts are full of love, our house is full of presents, and Adler’s belly is probably still full of his Smash Cake, that he literally smashed! I hope everyone has a great Monday in the snow! Hopefully everyone’s enjoying a little relaxing snow day.
