Regular clothes for pregnancy

Big Announcement!


(disclosure: prAna provided me with products to sample these products to provide my honest thoughts).  About a year ago, I wrote a post called “Should I have a 3rd Child?”  It felt cathartic to write, it helped me really get my feeling out and also hear some feedback from readers!   (Which by the way had better advice then my own family did!…

Should I have a 3rd Child? The Debate that Never Ends


I’ve never been the girl that knew exactly how many children they wanted.  I knew I wanted at least 2, because really, (sorry only children) kids love playing with other kids and siblings are the bomb.  I couldn’t imagine not having my siblings in my life.  So I new I wanted two, I just wasn’t sure if 2 was it…

Grief and Loss – The Truth About Losing my Dad


For the past three years, I’ve absolutely loathed the date of April 10th.  It was the day, 3 years ago, that I lost my dad.  Too young, too soon, and too tragically.  I’ve been a fairly private person when it comes to my blog and my family.  I share stories of our vacations and adventures, but never our hardships.  We’re all…

Our Easter Tradition


Disclosure:  Thank you to Evite for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own. Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  It’s the beginning of spring, the beginning a season spent outdoors with family and friends.  It’s a celebration of faith and hope renewed.  As a kid, it was my favorite holiday right behind Christmas…

They’re stressed, a little excited, and secretly can’t wait for the…

To the Parents that Bring their Toddlers Skiing and Snowboarding


Before children, we spent our winter weekends in the Colorado mountains snowboarding until our powder loving hearts were content.  We took breaks when we felt like it, spent hours doing run after run and loved every moment of it.  Fast forward to many years and multiple children later, we are still trying to find that balance between spending enough time…

My Last Few Weeks & Happy New Year All!


I know I know, I’ve been MIA, but everyone needs a vacation…including bloggers. 🙂  We spent the past two weeks SO incredibly busy – I’m still exhausted from the craziness.  First we spent 3 days in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colorado, to snowboard!! It was one of our best trips to Steamboat – they had 24 inches of snow in 24…

Colorado Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze List


Happy Fall!  I seriously LOVE the fall.  The weather is awesome, the colors are beautiful and I get to wear all my boots that have been collecting dust in my closet since the winter.  It’s a rite of passage every fall to visit a local pumpkin patch or corn maze.  If you’re not doing this with your family you should…
