Surprise! We are pregnant! We have been keeping a secret from ya’ll for over a month now and it has been one of the hardest secrets to keep. Some of ya’ll might have noticed do to my longer than usual absence on my blog, or my less frequent post on social media. These past couple weeks have been a blur. We’ve been so overjoyed by the news I wanted to shout it out from the rooftops. But it wasn’t till recently when we went for our first midwife appointment a week ago, and receiving some uncertain news that we decided we would share the news now even though we are not past our first trimester. Today on the blog I am sharing these beautiful photos our photographer took, more details of our pregnancy, and why we are choosing faith over fear. Read more below.

Hope you are doing well! Today I’m sharing a quick review and recap of our stay at Splashway this summer. A couple weeks ago we had the privilege to stay at Splashway with our mom friends and their kiddos for a fun summer vacation. It was honestly one of the most memorable mommy and me trip with my little guy. From our cute cabins, to roasting marshmallows by the fire, to enjoying all the fun rides at the waterpark, nothing says family summer vacation like Splashway. Plus we even got to bring our dog too! I hate having to leave our dog when we go on trips so knowing that Splashway is pet friendly made it even more enjoyable. Rotel (our dog) was spoiled by all the kids and loved being center of attention. Check out more of our stay at Splashway, where we stayed, what we did below!

Hope ya’ll are having a great week! This week I went on my very first mommy and me trip with Jayden to San Antonio with two of my blogger friends and their kiddos. It was my first time traveling by myself with Jayden without my husband or my family. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for a better two day trip with Jayden and our friends because we had the best time. This momma felt like such a super mom after the trip because we made so many unforgettable memories that I will cherish with my little guy. Below I am sharing my travel guide on what we did, where we ate, and what we wore to San Antonio. Plus tips for traveling with toddlers. Read more below!
When I look back at my teenage years, I can honestly say I was a little prick growing up. I know it wasn’t easy raising a stubborn daughter like me who never listened, and thought I was smarter than my parents. I always thought my parents were to strict and too old fashioned, and growing up I vowed, I never would be like my mom. But then your mom’s famous last words of “one day you will know what it’s like to be a mom and one day you will know I am right” came true. I became a mom, and just like that I realized I knew nothing, just like John Snow in Games of Thrones. I realized all those years of me arguing and second guessing my mom, she was right all along. So this Mother’s Day I am dedicating this post to my mom. A tribute to all the things my mom was right about that I finally realized now that I am a mom.
Hope you had a great week! Sorry I’ve been MIA this week, but we just closed on our new house this week and have been so busy moving in! It’s been one crazy whirlwind journey with this new home because the process literally happened in less than a month! We found this home, fell in love, and in three weeks we close. And in between then we have been busy trying to get everything ready to move plus clear out of our old house. We are also in the process of remodeling the kitchen in our new house so its been non stop. But I’m finally getting to your request for an empty house tour. So check it out and read more on why we chose this home to be our new home to grow our family in!
Hope you are having a great week! This past weekend we celebrated our little guy’s fourth birthday with the family. I can’t believe how much he has grown! Check out Jayden’s birth story and first birthday. Last week we had such a blast on our family trip to Colorado. Jayden loves the snow, and there wasn’t anything we didn’t do with the little guy when it came to snow activities. We even took him snowboarding again. And if you thought he was good last year, then you have to check out the video above and watch him shred the slopes by himself. I still can’t believe how talented he is. I had so many questions about him snowboarding and all the other activities Jayden was doing and so today I am sharing my top activities for kids for your next snow trip. Check them out below!
