Lately

Hey friends!

I've missed you all. I didn't mean to disappear for a couple weeks - I think this might be the first time I've stayed away this long for no real reason. We've just been busy bees... vacations, starting music classes, reading, friends visiting, finding the perfect maxi dress EVER. You know, checking off those important to-do's (because apparently summer is coming, despite the crazy snow Michigan has been getting for mid March).

And then unfortunately the not so fun stuff, too... Hadley getting in four painful teeth, me trying to kick these sinus problems once and for all, Brady throwing up socks, and Nick... having to go to work. Work is lame.

Now for what we're all here for. Cute baby and puppy pictures-


This girl is all over the place, all day long and I can barely keep up. She LOVES to explore and touch everything and put everything in her mouth and pull up on all the things. She wears me out - I've been ready for bed at about 4pm every day. (Don't worry, we have a real gate up there now!)


Because everyone needs a new pink lip gloss for spring! And I need a new manicure... But this one is Pink Smooch and I love it. It's the perfect pop of pink and the price is right. I think these are new by Baby Lips and I want every color.


Packing with a baby around, omg. Not for the faint of heart. As long as she wasn't climbing anything (she tries to scale the wire towel racks in our bathroom and it about gives me a heart attack) or swallowing anything, I literally just had to let her do her thing so I could get finish getting us ready to go the day we left for Park City. And do you know how long this roll of toilet paper kept her busy for? Like forever. Way longer than any actual toy - of course.

So Park City! This probably deserves its own post but #lazy. We had a good time, but my trip was kind of majorly brought down by sickness. I've been battling some sinus stuff since January and I think combined with the altitude, it was just no good. I felt terrible. I skied one morning and ended up in the urgent care for a breathing treatment and like 5 different antibiotic prescriptions. Dramatic, right?


We did have fun with our friends and it was good to get away for a little bit, but I just really wish I would have felt better. Such a bummer to spend most of a vaca in bed. I guess that just means we'll have to head back sometime (because I still need to get together with Laura!).


One of my fellow blog buddies is opening up a new BOW SHOP and I'm so excited for her! The Brave Bow Co is awesome. The bows are gorgeous and well made, but best of all, I love their heart for the community. For every bow purchased, a donation will be made to NICU's and pediatric cancer patients in childrens hospitals around the world. Their grand opening is March 31st so make sure to check them out!


Friends of ours that live in Chicago are getting married in Michigan this summer, so they were here wedding planning over the weekend. We got to watch their dog (!!) and it was so fun. Although I almost forgot how much work puppies are, but dang they're cute. Brady was in heaven with a buddy to chase around and I was in heaven since our friends paid us in Garrett's popcorn. My fave way to be paid.


First time riding in the cart! I don't know what took me so long to try this, but it's a game changer. So much more room for all the things. And a few seconds after this picture she tried to chew on the metal cart so this guy was promptly ordered.

Alright, well I'm off to finish making dinner. We're having this and my house smells amazing!

  4. I'm sorry you felt so crummy on your trip :( That is the lamest thing that could possibly ever happen in my opinion. Why is toilet paper the coolest thing ever? I've given up even having them on the actual holders because Cam is OBSESSED.

  11. Girl, I'm with you on the disappearing because LIFE act. It happens, don't sweat it!

    I just can't get enough of lil Hads, she is BEYOND the most adorable!!

  12. Hads is such a cutie and such a happy baby, minus the whole teeth coming in. Sucks that you were sick while on vacation, that's the worst, but glad you still got to somewhat enjoy yourself. Plus it definitely warrants another trip back :)! I've been pulling the blog disappearing act too now and I need to get myself together sometimes, but it's just tough.

  13. I'm sorry you were sick on vacay - that's the WORST! It did look fun though :) I had to laugh when you said Hadley put her mouth on the cart so you ordered the cushion thing for her! Hope you're feeling well and it's not too cold up there

  14. Hadley is so darn cute! I will have to check out those bows. Throwing up socks makes me laugh. Sorry you guys weren't feeling well on vacation. That stinks!!! I loved seeing all your pictures on Instagram though. I have one of those cart covers ready for when Zoe can sit in them! Cant wait to have the space back!

  15. I hate that you've been feeling so bad!! But sounds like you've definitely been busy and I'm sure keeping up with a crawling baby is no easy feat. Happy Friday!

    xo, Kristina

  16. Sorry you were so sick on your trip, that's not fun! I hope you're finally feeling better. Looks like little miss is on the move all the time! :)

  17. Hadley is so cute and she is getting so big! Toilet paper stays fun for YEARS! That stinks that you were sick for your trip, altitude is hard enough on it's own! I can't wait to grab some of those bows, thanks for sharing!! XO

  18. So sorry you were so sick on vacation, but those views - gorgeous! Look at Miss Hadley the explorer! Serena is at the stage of putting everything in her mouth, but she's not mobile yet so I know that'll bring on lots more challenges! And her shopping cart boppy will definitely be used so girlfriend doesn't chew on the handles! And poor Brady! You'd think he'd have an aversion to socks by now! Happy Friday gurlie <3

  22. Welcome back!! Love these sweet pictures! Hope you get those sinus issues in check ASAP - spring/allergies/sickness is no fun! (well, spring is, but without the others...)

  23. I hate you were so sick on your trip. What a bummer! We've had some crazy weather here in SC and it's killing my sinus too. Hope you are on the mend!

  24. Sorry to hear you were so sick for most of the visit! I'm so so bummed I couldn't make it up to you, and then of course I got really sick! So really, you just need to come back!
