    Tips for Staying Productive

    Now that we’re officially at the end of the first month of the year, I wanted to spark some conversation around something that has definitely gotten the better of me during January…staying productive.  Maybe it’s just because from the beginning of December to now, I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy and that’s notoriously the worst but y’all…my motivation was next to none. By that, I mean I lacked the motivation to do quite nearly everything.  I didn’t want to put much effort into blog work, I didn’t have the motivation to try hard when doing my school work, I didn’t want to be bothered to work out…

    1st Trimester: Products I Loved, Symptoms, Bump Update & More

    Hi friends and hello second trimester! *Disclaimer:  Affiliate links are used in this post.  I may earn a small commission for any products I mention.  However, I only refer products that I truly stand behind.  All opinions are my own. I can’t believe how fast the first trimester flew by.  It’s probably because I didn’t find out I was pregnant until I was almost 5 weeks (which really is early for many women) and so the remaining 7 weeks felt like they flew by!

    So, we tried HelloFresh…

    Well hello there! Today, I’m really excited to tell you about our experience with HelloFresh! I had mentioned to Ryan at some point in passing that I wanted to try HelloFresh as I’d heard so many good things about meal services.  So, we did some investigating and after checking out both HelloFresh and Blue Apron, we decided on HelloFresh because it’s cheaper. So we went online and checked out the meal options.  Now…I have to be honest with you guys.

    Well hello there! *Disclaimer:  Affiliate links are used in this post.  I may earn a small commission for any products I mention.  However, I only refer products that I truly stand behind.  All opinions are my own. So yeah..at 11 weeks pregnant, I decided that I needed to get my registry done. “Already?” Yes…already. I don’t care, I’m excited, okay?! I literally didn’t know how much fun doing a baby registry was and I’m so happy we did this earlier rather than later down the road.  I had so much fun roaming up and down the aisles scanning things for our registry, and picturing us using each and every item…

    Keeping Your Pups Safe In The Snow

    Hi there friends! Today, I thought I’d give a little attention to all the pups out there since I’ve been so focused on baby stuff.  I don’t want Chandler to think I’m neglecting him now that there’s a baby on the way so today, we’re showing him a little extra love (not that he doesn’t get it anyway but what the heck). Here in Pennsylvania, it has been brutally cold.  We’ve gotten a good amount of snow over the course of the last few weeks and while Chandler loves it (will someone tell him he’s a Goldendoodle, not a Siberian Husky?), snow is something that I always worry about with…
