First & Second Trimester: Outfits I’ve Loved

First & Second Trimester: Outfits I’ve Loved

I can’t believe I’m almost in my third trimester with baby #3! When I  was first pregnant years ago for the first time, I remember feeling self-conscious about my changing body and downplaying my bump and pregnancy in general. This time around… I’m so much more appreciative of my body, finding joy despite the overwhelm, discomfort, and unknowns, and EMBRACING this stage of life. That includes wearing all the clothes that make me feel good – lots of color included! In terms of actual maternity clothes, I tend to try to find bump-friendly NON-maternity options that work with a growing belly. As I’ve gotten further […]

My Go-To Gear for the Beach & Pool

My Go-To Gear for the Beach & Pool

Today, I’m sharing our go-to beach and pool gear, some adorable girls’ swimsuits, and some favorite beach and pool-focused vacations! ☀️👙🐚⛱️ BEACH BAGS: This BAGGU Cloud Bag has been all over the world with me – lots of beach and pool time in multiple countries. While it’s not technically a ‘beach bag’, it’s washable, dries quickly, and holds SO much. We bring this on most vacations because it works great for days at the beach or pool, but doesn’t feel overly ‘beach bag’-like for exploring or going to restaurants This is my first TikTok-influenced purchase! I just ordered this Bubble Bag for pool days this summer and love it […]

Travel Adventures: Cayman Islands

Travel Adventures: Cayman Islands

This post is a long time coming, but I’m finally getting around to sharing our spring break trip to the Cayman Islands! GENERAL CAYMAN ISLANDS INFO This is actually our second time visiting the Cayman Islands – we came here on our honeymoon in 2015! While we prefer to visit new places, we wanted to travel somewhere over spring break that was a direct flight or one layover, less than six hours, and not insanely expensive. We found good flights to Grand Cayman and remembered enjoying our time there, so decided to go back with the girls! Grand Cayman is the largest of the Cayman […]

Surprise! Baby 3 On The Way!

Surprise! Baby 3 On The Way!

Surprise! ✨ this year is going to be even more eventful than expected… baby 3 is on the way! 🤍 PREGNANCY Q&A: How far along are you? As of early May, I’m currently 20 weeks pregnant and due in September! The number one question I received was: was the baby planned? How did you decide to take the plunge from two kids to three? Many of you shared super thoughtful messages and comments after last year’s post asking how you decided whether to have a third kid. I don’t have a buttoned-up answer to this question, because this baby was…unplanned and quite the surprise! And I know […]
