When Motherhood Gets Messy

I always call my son, Sutton, one of my best friends because he totally is. I love my time with him and laugh harder with (and at) him than I think I ever have before. He is my compassionate, empathetic, kind, fun and extremely happy baby.

But as his character begins to show through, I’m beginning to see that he is also stubborn and very strong-willed.

Shop the Look: Navy Blue Ikat Dress + Brown Booties

There are some pieces in my closet that I’ve purchased and just automatically knew that they would be a personal staple until they were damaged beyond repair. Mainly because: I know that I’ll wear it again (meaning probably a million times) since it’s comfortable, I can dress it up or down, it fits well and it’s just super easy and cute. I wish I felt that way about every outfit that I purchase (and I’m sure my husband does as well 😉 ) but unfortunately that just isn’t the case.

Tasting Our Words Before We Spit Them Out

“I wish I never would have said that.”

I can’t count the number of times that I’ve spoken these specific words. I think them often – wishing that I could go back in time and take back all of the hurtful things that I’ve ever said. But words are so incredibly permanent, aren’t they? I know that I will never be able to wholly mend the negative effect and lasting impression that they have had on the people that I love.

Fringed Booties + Duster Cardigan: Ready for Fall

Hey all!

I wanted to do a quick post with some photos that my sweet friend Jen and I did just for fun! We found this super cute red door downtown and took some pictures with my sister-in-law! It was a warm day but we could feel it cooling down here in Albuquerque. I am one of those people who is SO excited for Fall that I’m willing to wear sweaters even if it’s still boiling outside 😉

A Love of Money

Many of us tend to live our lives wanting more and more; rarely willing to admit that enough is never enough. We pursue every single form of material pleasure – from new and shiny things to expensive vacations to pretty clothes –  in hopes that it will fulfill the emptiness in our hearts, bring us a hint of joy or impress someone while making us feel accomplished.  And whether we have the ability to afford it or not, we walk past storefronts or look over the fence at our friend’s lives  and long for something new – allowing our “stuff” to define us.

Looking Away From Our Phones and Back At Our Spouse

There have been so many nights, too many to count, when I realize that three hours have passed in which I have been so glued to my phone that I haven’t said one word to my husband. And although I’m not intending to, in those three short hours, I have actively ignored him, neglected the importance of time spent with him and placed my own needs and desires above his. On days when we can’t talk or text much before he gets home, I quickly realize that I don’t even have an idea as to what he did that day. I have made a choice to pull us apart, little by little.

10 Pretty Things I Don’t Want to Live Without

I am always grateful when a girl is willing to share her secret after being asked, “Where did you get that?!” Who doesn’t want to go to a website or store knowing for a fact that you’re going to buy something you definitely love because you’ve already seen it on, or used by, someone else? It’s the best! I thought it would be fun to share a personal list of 10 Pretty Things I Don’t Want to Live Without and the reasons why I love them!

Quick and Easy Spicy Chicken Fried Rice: Better Than Takeout

My husband and I may just be some of the biggest fans of sushi ever. We go almost every weekend – I know, CARBS! – but we love it and can’t get ourselves to stop eating rolls. Green Chile Rolls, Salmon Mania Rolls, Philadelphia Rolls – they’re all just too good to resist! However, during my pregnancy, I chose not to eat sushi. I didn’t want to steal that guilty pleasure from my husband though; let’s be honest, he needed something to keep him going while dealing with a crazy, hormonal wife 😉 So instead of sushi, I would order Chicken Fried rice while gawking over my husband’s salmon sashimi plate.
