Weekly Roundup 1/23

    This week was a shit show.  On Monday, we had planned to go see ice castles in downtown Stillwater, but Sunday night Vivian woke up and threw up multiple times. Earlier that week she kept doing this weird motion where she would tilt her head forward toward her toes and belch.  So, Monday morning I spoke with her pediatrician and she had us come to the clinic.  She thought it was reflux and at the time that made...

The Truth About Instagram

    I feel like I’m writing a speech for winning an oscar or something, “I’d like to thank everyone who supported me…” But, really you guys – 30,000 followers! I’m so amazed and feeling pretty grateful, so thank you! I used to see people with 30k followers and think their life was perfect looking.  Somehow having a bigger number of followers creates a bigger facade that they are “better” or have no problems (everyone does!) I just want to...

Project Master Bedroom

We moved into our new home mid-August and the first thing we did was start painting. If you don’t have much of a budget, but want change, paint! Paint is cheap and makes a huge difference!  Side note, at our old house I painted our living three different times while I was pregnant, I couldn’t decide what color I wanted! #crazypregnancyhormones The previous paint colors in our current master bedroom were not my taste.  I had taken “before” pictures on...

Adventures in Puerto Rico (Part II)

The second half of our vacation we checked out a few different beaches (keep reading to find out why some were a bust!) We also went to TPC Dorado Beach, Old San Juan, and checked out Plamas Del Mar. Anyone who knows my husband and Dad knows we weren’t going to Puerto Rico without them trying out a new golf course.  They picked out TPC Dorado Beach and claimed they picked it for us ladies too.  We laughed at first knowing they really...
