Life Update....












Hi guys! Hoping everyone is having a good week! Trying to get better at doing my blog posts and staying on top of things!  Organization is definitely the key, but sometimes life just gets in the way. Speaking of life, here is a little life update for you guys.....
Ashton started preschool last week!  I can't even believe it! It sure does go by so fast and I know in no time my little Greyson will also be experiencing the same things!  Greyson is getting ready to turn 7 months tomorrow and every day that goes by I secretly cry inside because I'm not ready for him to grow up and not be a baby anymore! Time has no mercy and I'm trying to soak up every minute of him being my little snuggle, loving and happy BABY boy!
We took our first road trip as a family of 4 to Chicago over Labor Day weekend and I'm so glad we survived!  Traveling with kids is brutal....not going to lie! For the most part both boys did good, it could have been so much worse, however it was …

A Birth Story :: Greyson Knox Bosserdet

February 12th, 2018..........










Our hearts are so full and our family is complete now that we have little Greyson in our lives. The last 6 months have been both challenging and beautiful, filled with laughter, cries, learning experiences and so much love! Being a mom to these two beautiful boys is the best thing that has happened to me and by far the most exciting experience of my life. It changed my world and I couldn't imagine life without my boys! In honor of Grey's 6 months, I finally got around to sharing his birth story, hope you enjoy reading it!

My original due date was February 14, so we were all excited because it was going to be a Valentine baby and we though that was so neat. However, I have to admit that there was a side of me that wanted him to arrive early because I wanted him to have his own day. I was also feeling huge and ready to burst by the time February 1st rolled around, so thinking I had 2 more weeks was an exhausting thought. I remember going to my doct…

Happy Monday!! I truly miss blogging, since having Greyson and becoming a mom of 2, it has been so hard to find time for anything other than tending to my babies and trying to keep up with life.  It's been almost 2 months since Greyson was born and that first week was a blur, I'm not going to lie.  It was an adjustment in so many ways, Greyson had his night and day mixed up so we had to work on fixing that, Ashton was very jealous which was very challenging and even til this day, it's a work in progress situation and we are hoping he grows out of this phase soon.  I was so sleep deprived......Ashton went from sleeping through the night, to waking up once a night and only wanted momma to lay with him in bed.  So as Ashton was falling back asleep, it was time t…

My Pregnancy Journey

Image
Happy Monday, friends!! I'm officially 39 and a half weeks pregnant and after seeing my doctor this past week, I know I will not be making it to the 40 week mark.  Knowing that this would be my last pregnancy has made this experience that much more special and emotional. Both of my pregnancies have been very easy and I'm so grateful for that. However, this second time around, it is so true what they say....your body knows what it's doing and it starts adjusting very early on. You do show early, your belly seems to pop sooner than the first time, you feel baby kicking and moving weeks before you did with your first one, and you don't realize how fast it goes until you are close to your due date because you have been so busy chasing your first one around.
The last couple months were pretty tiring and emotional for me because I couldn't help but think about how a new baby would change the relationship that Ashton and I have.  If you follow me on Instagram, you might …

My Hospital Bag // What to Pack

Ideas and Tips on what to pack for your hospital stay with baby.......









Hi friends!!  Hope everyone is having a good week! I finally got around to doing my hospital bag yesterday and you would think it would have taken me no more than a couple hours, however, it took me most of the afternoon because I was catching up on laundry and trying to select what I really needed this time around and not add things that were not necessary like my first time.
I have narrowed them down to 15 things, for mom and baby, that I believe are essentials and will help you have a comfortable stay while enjoying your new little one.
Mommy ::
1) A Robe , hospitals can be cold and this will keep you warm and comfortable during your stay.

2) Nursing Tank Tops , you will be living in these if you decide to breastfeed, so I would buy a couple to get you through..... I also have these and love them! 3) Warm Socks , if you are anything like me and get cold easily......a couple pairs of warm socks will make your sta…

My Blogging World

My Perspective and Thoughts on Blogging.......


Happy 2018!!!  What an exciting year this one is going to be! On a personal level, the highlight of our year will most definitely be welcoming our baby boy to our family. On a business level, I'm looking forward to growing my blog and really creating a space that allows me to share my life, my family, my everyday style and any tips or products I find helpful for you as a reader.

When I started this blog in April of 2013(you can see my first post here), I really was not sure how the blogging world worked nor did I ever imagine what it would become....I just knew that I enjoyed creating different looks, playing with my style, and to share it with my friends and anyone who was interested.  During that time, I happened to run into a fashion blog that I followed religiously for years and still follow today, that gave me the courage to say, "I think I can do this too"!

Fast forward to today, blogging has become a force, it's …

Happy Sunday!!  It's the last day of 2017 and what a fulfilling and exciting year it has been for us!  We were blessed with the news of finding out we were pregnant in early May and knowing that we would be welcoming a little brother and best friend for Ashton is definitely the best gift 2017 brought us.  With that said, it was also time to start thinking about the changes this new little boy would bring and how we were going to adjust from being a family of 3 to becoming a family of 4.  Through the next months, I experienced a roller coaster of emotions due to knowing that my little baby would soon be a little boy and soon enough we would ha…
