Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta 2014 (Recap)

Seeing hundreds of balloons inflate, lift off, and float right in front of you at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is simply astonishing.

We're one month away from one of my favorite time of the year: balloon fiesta time! I shared a few photos with you from last year's Albuquerque Aloft (a really cool event they have where balloons lift off from local elementary schools), but as I was scrolling through my Facebook albums and realized I never showed you the other days of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Talk about pregnancy brain! Since we're one month away from this year's fiesta, I figured I wouldn't let my old pictures just ... read more

Shopping Spree with Leonisa + Giveaway

LEONISA giveaway

Ladies, let's chat for a minute about our undergarments. I recently started purging my closet and drawers, and I discovered at least a dozen old bras. I've been hanging on to them like my "skinny" jeans that are stuffed in a bag in the back of my closet, hoping I'd one day fit into them again. But, two babies later, I finally gave up that dream and realized that these new boobs, and my new hips are here to stay (at least for now). If you're like me, and in desperate need for some new pretty ... read more

Dia&Co Reveal (August box)

Dia&Co Reveal. The August box!

My third Dia&Co box arrived earlier this week, and I couldn't wait to open it. It showed up just before Julia went down for her nap, and she kept saying, "Mama present, mama present!" Yup, getting a package in the mail is seriously like receiving a present. I was even more excited about this particular box, because I had high hopes that it'd contain two things I asked for: pants and something bohemian. I'm finally ready to start venturing outside of my trusty maternity pants, but the ... read more

Okay y'all, I need your help. We're hitting the road this fall and driving from Georgia to New Mexico/Arizona, and I need to know where we should stop to eat on our road trip along the way. Our schedule will be fairly tight, so there won't be much time to see the sites this time, but there will be time for lunch and dinner stops (and unless it's the best breakfast place EVER, the most important meal of the day will most likely start at the hotel or Micky D's so we can hit the road). Eight ... read more

Confessions of a Mama

Because real life isn't perfect. Real life is a little messy, and that makes it perfect.

It's time to get a few things off my chest, because my life is far from perfect. I actually think "Confessions of a Mama" would be a pretty fun series or a neat monthly link-up. I know I like hearing that I'm not the only one who goes through similar things like these (unless I am the only one and then...well, just please don't judge me). Thoughts? This mama confesses that... ...My husband and I slept with a Maddie-induced poop stain between us on our bed for much, much longer than we ... read more
