You Do You, Mommy

When I was pregnant, I didn’t really think about the way I was going to feed Braden. I knew that nursing was a natural and healthy option for feeding him, but I was grateful to know there were backup options (like formula) if I had any problems. I had heard so many different moms who said that nursing is the best … Continue reading “You Do You, Mommy”

Wren Dress

It’s no surprise that I LOVE this dress. This the Wren from Colette Patterns. I bought the fabric last summer from a shop in the LA Fashion District. I was so excited to finally use it, and it was perfect for this dress! I know wrap dresses are sort of “trending” right now, but I have always loved wrap dresses, … Continue reading “Wren Dress”

Scout Tee [Front Zip Peplum]

I’ve been wanting to make a zipper-front shirt or dress since I saw Merrick’s lemon dress from last summer. I loved the zipper detail and that it was nursing friendly. I have also been loving all of the loose fitting peplums lately and really wanted to make one. I debated between the Lou Box Top and the Scout Tee by Grainline Studio, … Continue reading “Scout Tee [Front Zip Peplum]”


I don’t have a question for this week because it’s already late on Tuesday and I’m no quitter. I’m currently feeding a hungry baby and I’ve been sick since Sunday with a horrible cold – That should NOT be aloud when you have an almost two month old. But since there’s not much I can do about that I just … Continue reading “Grati-Tuesday”


What place are you most grateful for? I am most grateful for home – where ever that is at the moment. I’ve moved quite a few times, so I’m not really fond of the question “Where are you from?”, but I do like the places I’ve lived and the people I’ve been able to meet from moving so many times. … Continue reading “Grati-Tuesday”

Braden Danger’s Birth Story

Saturday, November 26 – It’s a no go. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, I started having contractions. Since Dallas’s whole family was at his grandparents house (where we live), they were all super excited that I would have the baby while they were all there. We went to Labor & Deliver (L&D) Saturday morning with contractions that weren’t very bad, but … Continue reading “Braden Danger’s Birth Story”

Grateful Every Day

I have been slacking on the Grati-Tuesday posts for the past two weeks because having a newborn is a little bit of a whirlwind. I was so grateful that my mom stayed to help with Braden all of last week. As we were sitting on the back porch on Tuesday (the day after we got back from the hospital), I couldn’t … Continue reading “Grateful Every Day”
