Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

12 October 2021


Fall cooking is probably my favorite. There's nothing like getting cozy and enjoying the warm scents of apple, cinnamon and butternut everything! This pregnancy has upped my craving for every fruit imaginable and also pancakes. Mix the two together with a side of fall and you got yourself a very happy pregnant chick. I came across a steamed cinnamon apple topper that I had to try and I'm here to report it's 10/10 and also deserves a 10/10 for how easy it is to make. Here's how!

Bump Friendly Costumes: Mike Wazowski

10 October 2021


It's my favorite time of year: DIY costume series! This time is of course so much more special because my little guy is part of it. At 5 months pregnant, it's definitely hard to fit into much unless it has tons of stretch, SOOO regular Halloween costumes were not part of the equation this year. I need something that's comfortable, bump friendly and anything other than that darn Pooh Bear costume that seems to be the only costume for pregnant chicks lol. It's cute, but we need more options, so this series will feature bump-friendly costumes - for all my pregnant mamas! First up, Mike Wazowski. Let's do this!

Before I Continue: I'm Pregnant!

07 October 2021


This blog has half served as my personal diary and half information I love to share and write about. In wanting to document life as it happens, and for the next few posts to make so much more sense, I need to share that I'm pregnant! 20 weeks, five months, having a baby boy pregnant. When I wrote about recommitting to sharing weekly posts back in June, I had no idea what kind of weather I'd storm. That weather was called The First Trimester lol. 

June Favorites

30 June 2021

Hi hi! I saw a fun IG story template today that was all about June favs and it inspired me to write this post. Not gonna lie, while mentally answering some of the questions, I thought there was definitely a ton of room for improvement and discovery in my life. Not that I like to repeat things in life, it's just so easy to stick to what you know! I think this exercise is going to help me reflect on things I learned to love and push me to seek more newness in my life too. Okay let's get this month's recap started!

I remember the days when I'd spend all day thinking about blog posts, be excited to take pictures to support its content, support my work on social, be known as a blogger before 'influencer' took precedence, get excited to meet and mingle with other bloggers, etc. There's a lot this blog has given me and every time I ghost it, I think constantly think about. 

Chicken Tortilla Soup - Crockpot Recipe

28 January 2021

Get your crockpots ready, ladies and gentlemen! If you're a chicken tortilla soup fan, this is the only recipe you need - also most likely the easiest.  I'm a total soup girl and chicken tortilla is one of my absolute favs. I've never had much luck making a good version of this soup, but honestly this version is the one I can make every single week and not get bored. You only need a few basic ingredients to make 4-5 servings, so let's get right to the deets!

How I'm Manifesting the Best Year Ever

08 January 2021

Dudes. Was 2020 a weird year or what? It definitely flew by, yet feels like in the middle of my very long blink, I woke up and now it's 2021. I've tried writing this post all week, but every day has felt like the worst day to put thoughts together. I juggled from writing a sweet note to just diving in, and well, per the first week of 2021 it simply felt right to just dive in with my thoughts on how I'm going to work on doing good and being a better person to myself and others. Okay let's do this!
