How does she do it all?

  1. Lindsay says:

    He is SO adorable!

  2. Jade says:

    It is tough and I don’t think anyone ever has it all down! Don’t stress out and just enjoy that bundle of joy! They get big much too quick and you can’t get this time back!

  3. LindsB says:

    I dont have any kids and I dont know how my mom did it with my brother and I. Moms really are super heros that dont get enough credit. Hang in there, you will get everything done and we will still be here when things get back to normal 🙂 xoxox

  4. He is such a cutie! Congratulations! I don’t have kids yet, but often look at mothers in awe…I don’t know how they do it!

    It is so difficult in the beginning, falling in love with that little bundle is the most important part. You will get the rest. You will instinctively know what is best for your little family. I wish you all of the joy and blessings a little one can bring.

  6. Don’t worry! Nobody does it all- but you will find a rhythm that works for you and things will settle into place.. good luck!

    It is really very easy……..if you don’t mind throwing your whole list out the window. Hope you enjoy. I am a “still trying to figure it out” mother of 7.

    Hudson is such a doll. Just take a deep breath when you are running out of energy. Try to rest when he does. It is the biggest job in the world!

    OOOOhhh… I COMPLETLY understand. I have twins and the first 9 months of there life was to say the least crazy/exhausting and yet, some how blissful rolled into one. Like a weird Sushi roll…. I remember something my aunt said to me once I find my self rethinking about once in a while.

    “I remember getting so caught up in the survival mommy mode I found years past so quick, I wish I could go back and get a chance to cherish my kids baby years.”

    Cherish the bad, the hard, the good and the great. All the moments in this now. The newborn stage is FAST and you’ll want it back in only a few couple months.
    Your readers are so happy for your new one in your life. Don’t worry about us. We’ll be here when you get back. 🙂

    Anyway. You are doing wonderfully, tell your self that every second. Moms are the very most important job on the earth.

  11. Sara says:

    Don’t be hard on yourself; having a newborn is amazing and glorious, but also pretty hard at times. You seem to be doing great! I think when my first was born I barely had time to pee and occasionally eat something ;).

    As time goes on, some things get easier and others get harder, but you will eventually have more time to get stuff done. Try not to worry about it too much. Hudson is precious and adorable! Have so much fun snuggling with him!

    And, my blog is finally up so my offer of guest posts still stands! I completely understand if you don’t want a “blogging baby” to try to fill in for you, but I’d be honored to it if you wanted some extra posts.

    Congratulations again!

    Try to give yourself a break. There is a reason that maternity leave is often 3 months long–it takes that long to just get to some point of normalcy. Being a working mom is hard, for sure, but trying to work with a newborn? Nearly impossible.

    Be good to yourself, sleep whenever you can, and rest assured your readers will stand by you, even if you take a break.

  13. Terese says:

    i think you’ve got the right idea…set aside the to-do list and just relish being in the company of your little man. the days will go by so quickly! (easier said than done, i know.)

  14. focus on the little guy….he wont be so little soon!

  15. Daniela says:

    I’m sorry I had to come back! I miss youuu and the little man! Keep the daily pics coming please! I keep telling people that he is my son and that I had a baby over break.
    Love you! xoxo

    I know how that feels. Both my sisters and parents live far away and my baby is coming in a month. It will be hard to not have them around full-time, but I’m sure the little nugget will keep me busy!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
