I never thought I’d be “that” mom who bought matching outfits for her daughters AND herself. Growing up, my mom used to dress my sister and I in matching outfits but it was the 90’s, we were seven years apart and I remember feeling so not cute and pretty mortified. But truth be told, 12 weeks into becoming a mama of two, I’ve officially become my mother! I’m finding the whole matching family outfit thing to be kind of addicting and fun! Who am I?!
Hello 2020! Halfway through January, I’ve finally gotten my act together enough to share my new year’s resolutions with you. My hands have been so full with Sadie and Naiya over the past few months, the days keep melting away. Trying to savor all of the cuddles while not beating myself up too much about not being as productive as usual. After all, having the chance to sit behind my computer to type or get anything done for that matter has been so much more difficult than it was with only one baby! Mamas, can you relate? Excited to round up my top 5 new year’s resolutions below in hopes that in writing them down, I’ll actually be able to continue sticking to them. Hoping that in sharing them, they’ll inspire you too.
When it comes to accessories, I’m a shoe girl all the way. I don’t often splurge on them but when I do, I love doing some digging to make sure they are truly worth the cost beforehand. If I’m going to spend the money, I always want to make sure that they’ll last for years to come. I’ve had my eye on Golden Goose sneakers for a few years now because they’re so versatile and I’d heard they’re incredibly comfortable. That said, I didn’t pull the trigger on buying them because they come with such a high price tag.
For the past 5.5 weeks since baby Sadie came into the world, I feel like I’ve been living in a new mama vortex. With nursing every 2-3 hours throughout the day and night and chasing after one of the most energetic toddlers in town, every day seems to morph into the next. Even the second time around, the fourth trimester is such an exhausting blur! Today, I’m excited to share what I’ve learned so far as a mama to two, as well as some of our favorite photos we snapped of our family when we first came home from the hospital. These photos make me melt and I can’t believe how much bigger Sadie has grown since we took them!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with their families and friends! I still can’t believe the holidays are already here. I feel like I blinked, had a new baby and 2020 is right around the corner! Since Sadie is too young to travel this year, we’re laying low at home to snuggle our two little turkeys. For those of you looking to do some holiday shopping tonight and tomorrow, there are some amazing sales going on. Excited to round up some of our favorites below as well as some of our favorite gift ideas. Enjoy!
