i don’t know anything about babies

yesterday i was a total loser and had my appointments confused. ultrasound is in about a week and yesterday was just a normal check up. i went in to the office and the nurse handed me a tiny strip that looks like it tests the chlorine levels in my pool. she showed me to the […]

fit pregnancy

after we went through our loss with our first pregnancy i made a bit of a list of things that i wanted to accomplish (but didn’t) before i ever got pregnant. since our first pregnancy did not go as expected i took it as a sad second chance to get it right this time. to […]

nursery inspiration 2

so this morning is off to a stellar start. (insert sarcasm here) i went to the gym around 6:45 (good) went to the dentist (not my favorite) then discovered that some loser has spent about $10k in amazon coins and bought video games as well (super sucky) after searching high and low for some sort […]

weekend recap rip stan

so this weekend was full of ups and downs. i was home after being gone for an entire week and joe was actually going to be home at the same time as well. kinda. friday night he had a charity dinner and i worked late at the shop and fell asleep at 8pm with a […]

finally friday home sweet home

ahhhhhhh home sweet home. i love to travel and explore new places but there is truly no place like home. honestly i think i write that sentence every time i get back from a trip but it is so so true. the second you open the door to your house… the smells, the familiarity rushes back […]

pregnancy after loss

i’ve been thinking about this for a long time. about 17 weeks to be exact. pretty much since the morning i took that test and shoved it in my shoe closet (which i guess if i do that two pregnancies in a row it’s officially a habit) it’s been weighing on my heart. how do […]

pentwater plaid chairs

i know that we have like a million actual projects to do at the penthouse (pentwater cottage) but i had to sneak a little fun decor project in there! there are so so many pros to having a shop but one of the best things is being surrounded by some of the most talented artists […]

pentwater steps

if you read my post yesterday you know joe and i spent the better part of our weekend working away at our tiny cottage in pentwater. it’s a little hard to see from this picture how steep these steps are but… trust me it was bad. you can see how uneven they are and kind […]

nursery inspiration 1

ok so last weekend my mom sister and i went shopping in chicago mostly for clothes but also to kick off the search for baby registry and nursery stuff. i’m very set on not finding out what we are having so the challenge is to find gender neutral items that are not bland or orange. […]

meet bernadette the bronco

i’ve had her for a few months but when we took her out last weekend i thought it was time for a formal introduction. meet bernadette the bronco everyone! she’s a 1977 ford bronco in all her minty glory. i’d like to say i bought her on a whim but that is not the case […]
