    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.

    Educational Benefits for Toddlers at Sea World San Diego

    Disclaimer: We received media tickets to Sea World San Diego in exchange for review. All opinions are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    We had the opportunity to visit Sea World while we were on vacation last week and had a blast! It was overcast but not too cold and the park wasn’t crowded. A perfect theme park day!

    Sawyer LOVES animals and has loved the zoo the few times we’ve taken him so we knew he would love Sea World. Sawyer is picking up new words and phrases like crazy lately. Since he’s learning so fast, we are trying our best to make sure he learns everything he needs to at this age. Colors, numbers, body parts, and animals! Our day at Sea World was perfect to teach him a few new animals and some facts about marine life.

    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!

    Working at Home Mom Magic- The 3 Things I Can’t Live Without!

    As someone who runs a business out of their home, there are certain things I cannot compromise on.

    Working at home takes a lot of preparation, equipment, and patience. You have to prevent as many problems as possible, but also be prepared for things to go wrong. If I’m working on a deadline, I’d hate for the wifi to stop working or the power to go out. I don’t have time for that!

    There are 3 things that I could not live without while working at home!

    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:

    Mommy Errands with Enterprise CarShare

    Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Enterprise CarShare. All opinions are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    Like most families, we own two cars. But, unlike most families, we really only use one of them. One car is brand new (just drove it off the lot last August), runs great and we LOVE it. The other car I bought when I was in college, long before we were married, and that’s pretty much on its last leg. It runs, and since I mainly work at home blogging, we don’t need to drive it much.

    This works out for the most part since I’m pretty busy at home but I definitely go a little stir crazy sometimes. Sawyer and I don’t get to go on a lot of “adventures” because there’s not a ton close by and I don’t feel comfortable driving the scary car down into the city.
