    Ah, Summer.

    My absolute favorite time of year. I made it a goal to make sure that we had fun and relaxed this summer. We spent all Winter completely cooped up, not only due to the weather, but due to one of our cars being out of commission, we literally hardly ever left the house! That took a serious toll on me both mentally and emotionally. It’s no good for your mental health to be inside all day! Now that we have another car for a little while and the weather is great, I really want to make sure we are active and outdoors!

    The May Pregnancy Box from Ecocentric Mom was so fun!

    I love getting fun things to pamper myself with during pregnancy. It’s important to have things for me, to make me feel better, physically during this hard time. Taking some me time is often just what I need after a day of swollen feet, an achy back, and terrible heartburn.

    A Comfortable Maternity Look with PinkBlush

    I’m so uncomfortable.

    I wish I could even describe it. With Sawyer, I had an anterior placenta. Meaning the placenta was in front of the baby (behind my belly button) rather than behind him. So while I still felt all of his movements, they were toned down and not very intense.

    Becoming a Big Brother- When Your World Changes

    Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s your 1st or 5th baby. A baby changes absolutely everything. Your routine and schedule, your relationship with your spouse, your relationship with your pet, your relationship with your other children (if any), your relationship with your friends and family, your sleep patterns, your eating habits, everything.

    Introducing a new member to your family is such a wonderful thing, but it can also definitely turn things upside down. I’m about to have my second baby and I already know it’s going to shake things up for everyone. Especially Sawyer. Not only is he currently an only child, but he’s also the only grandchild on both sides. That means he has the constant attention of not only my husband and me, but our parents and siblings. Adding a new baby to the mix is going to rock his world. He’s too young to understand my pregnancy, and I’m trying to find other ways to get us both ready for the change.

    Turn Any Bag Into a Gym Bag

    Happy Tuesday!

    We’re back from vacation! We had an amazing time, I’ll have a full recap up later this week (plus a separate Disneyland post). I’m exhausted but ready to get back to work.

    I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant. I’ve been trying to stay as active as possible by working out regularly. There are so many benefits to working out during pregnancy. It reduces the risk of gestational diabetes, eases aches and pains (which I have a lot of this time around), can make labor and delivery easier, and help you lose the baby weight quicker!

    Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade Mocktail


    Ah, pregnancy.

    One of the most stressful things a woman can go through, and yet, we take away her wine. It’s a cruel rule.

    I’ve also got a bit of a sweet tooth (plus a pretty intense ice craving), so sometimes I like to make fun mocktails!

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for Bubbly Pomegranate Lemonade here’s what you’ll need:
