Working Out Post Baby & My Favorite Athleisure …

Leggings // Workout Tank (similar) // Zip Up // Shoes // Sunglasses Working out. We either love it or we hate right? Pre-baby I was adamant about working out at least 4 times a week for mostly superficial reasons. I wasn’t thinking about the future, I was living in the present. Post-baby I workout for a much different reason. I want to live longer for my kiddos and I want to be in good enough shape to always run around with them. My Post-Baby Workout Journey After MK, my almost 3 year old, getting back into the saddle wasn’t too difficult. My pregnancy was relatively easy and after I got…

My 3 Favorite Things of the Week

Happy Monday! If you follow me on Instagram, I mentioned that I have a new series coming to the blog called, “My 3 Favorite Things of the Week.” Essentially, I’ll be sharing three of my favorite things each Monday. Favorite things can be anything from items of clothing that I love or beauty products to baby items! It will be across the board about items that I NEED to share with you guys! I’ll be doing a sneak peek on Instagram stories on Sunday nights if you want to follow along. I’ll likely be trying on any clothing items I recommend so you can see them in person and demonstrating…

Home Office Inspiration with Plum & Post

Full disclosure: life as a working mom can be tough. Sometimes it’s hard to find enough hours in the day to tackle my office life, mom life and blog life. I have made it a goal to truly respect all areas of my life. When I’m at the office, I’m all in and when I’m at home, I’m all in. This typically means that after I leave work, I’m home and focusing on my baby [and husband & cat] until she goes to sleep. It also means that there are mornings I wake up early to work or blog and nights I plug in after Madeline is asleep. I’ve never been afraid…

Spring Floral Dresses

Outfit Details: Dress; Booties; Jacket (similar and similar) It may only be February, but I am feeling all the vibes of Spring here in Minneapolis! Our weather has been crazy good the past few weeks and I can’t help but immediately pull out all my fun swingy dresses. If you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with all things floral. This dress is non-maternity but works for my growing bump as well! Swing dresses tend to work on many body types and that includes bump-growing or not for me. I’m excited to wear this through my last trimester and then into the summer as I recover. It conceals, but is also fitted…

Valentine’s Giveaway: Jord Wood Watches

Happy Valentine’s Day week! I’m not huge into going crazy for Valentine’s Day, however I’m never going to hate a holiday about love. To me, love is not limited to that for my significant other but also extends to my friends, family and kiddo. I honestly try to celebrate all year long, but having a specific day to remind me each year is okay in my book! Typically, Mike and I don’t exchange gifts but exchange experiences instead. Last year he made me a video highlighting the first 6 months of Madeline’s life (queue all the tears) and we always try out a new restaurant or brewery. This year we are…

First Trimester Must Have’s

Hello! Now that I am THROUGH my first trimester with baby #2 (yayyy) I wanted to share some of my favorite items that made the first 13 weeks a little easier. This pregnancy has been completely different than with Madeline – I’ve experienced more nausea, headaches and the fatigue is like nothing I remember. With Madeline I “loved being pregnant” and was the most annoying ever since I basically had zero symptoms. This time, I’m having more of a real pregnancy and let’s just say I’m happy to be onto trimester 2 and to have enough energy to write this post! 1. Body Pillow The love of my life! I was…
