I’m mommy to my sweet (almost) 1 year old daughter Ava. I am also married to the most wonderful man in the world. I am a full time mommy and a part time Sales Director for Elase Medical Spa.
I met in a singles ward in Colorado. We got married exactly 1 year after we started dating!
Ava has changed everything for me. Before having her, everything I did was for myself. I did what I wanted and when I wanted to do it. Now Ava always comes first, and that’s a good thing! She is the biggest blessing I could have ever hoped for, and I’m so glad she is mine.
It is amazing to see someone unconditionally love and need you. I never thought I could love someone so much until she was born. I love coming home to her after a day at work and seeing her light up with excitement to see me. Best feeling ever.
Maxi dresses and skirts! It was big and prego during the entire summer with her, so I was dying from the heat! I loved being able to slip on a stretchy and comfy maxi dress, and throw a cardigan over it.
Probably that is ok to ask for help once she was born. Sometimes I get prideful and feel like I can do everything on my own, so it was a huge reality check to realize that I could ask and needed to ask for help whenever I needed it! Also even though it isn’t always fun for everyone, the first month especially, try to enjoy it as much as possible. It can be hard for some, but cherish it because they grow WAY too fast and you will look back at 1 year old and want that little newborn back!
How much work it would be! I knew it was going to be life changing, but I didn’t really anticipate how everyday life changes so much! I wish I was more prepared for life after baby.
I will never forget the first time Ava smiled at me! Those little changes they make over the first year are really fun to go back and look at later and see how much they have changed!
Well I started out with a family blog, but then I felt like I just do such a great job finding inexpensive clothing that I wanted to share it with other girls like me and maybe help them. It has been really fun!
I don’t know if I could call it anything really, I will wear anything from preppy, trendy, boho, and everything in between. I love to try different things here and there, but for the most part I would say it’s pretty classic.
I pull inspiration for everywhere! Here in Utah all the girls have awesome fashion sense, so I get some from people all around me.
I love love love Jennifer Anistons’ style and I think that Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars is gorgeous!
I have a few! Chapstick and mascara are a MUST, and then I think fresh bright skin makes any outfit.
Probably my Chambray shirt and my black leggings. I wear them with everything!
Sometimes it really hard! Especially with a job in the mix, getting everything done is madness! I wouldn’t be able to balance it all without my incredible husband Scott though, he is always willing to help me and does anything he can to make my life easier.
I love getting e-mails from people who love my blog and I have helped! I love knowing that my blog not only makes me happy as a hobby, but also serves others as well.
A very special thanks to my friend Morgan for sharing her pregnancy and style tips with us!
