Thanks Living

We’re going into the chillier months in the PNW which means a lot more time indoors for me.  One thing you all have to know about me is that If I’m at home, I’m usually wearing comfy pants and not jeans. In fact, I went through a phase (like a year!) where I never wore jeans after having Cole! Now I own (ONLY!) two pairs of blue jeans because comfy pants are definitely my #1.   I recently got these steel blue crushed velvet pants from PinkBlush and Oh my goodness, they are SO cute, and I was happily surprised with how soft they are.

What else speaks fall than a slouchy sweater and beanie?!? This dusty rose knit and burgundy beanie are from the cutest local shop called Cedar & Pine.  The other day, I had the opportunity to check out this boutique in Stanwood, Washington.  I pretty much wanted to try on everything in the shop! They carry trendy clothing pieces as well as home decor (and even seasonal decor!).  Continue reading “Fall Cozies from Cedar & Pine”

My Struggle with Anxiety

Photo Sep 21, 10 48 32 AM.jpg

It’s the worst thing in the world, when you can’t seem to control your emotions. It can come in the form of feeling like you are going to pass out, your heart is racing, and your vision starts to close in. All my fellow ladies who have struggled with this can tell you exactly what I’m talking about and that is anxiety. 

I first started experiencing anxiety after I stopped nursing Emma, and my hormones were getting back on track. I remember when I went on a trip and suffered with anxiety on the plane. Normally I would have been so excited to fly, but that time it was so weird because Continue reading “My Struggle with Anxiety”

Patience to Wear the Necklace

I know the stereo type of someone into makeup would be that I sit for hours in front of the mirror. Well, no I don’t. I’m pretty quick most days-well you kind of have to learn how to do that as a mom (though in high school I definitely spent a long time getting ready). In fact, I’m a pretty expedient person now a days when it comes to getting things done or wanting to see results. It’s like when I check my abs a few days after working out for the first time, hoping to see something other than my post-baby pooch. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that does this!

Swimsuit Insecurites

I feel like I do this every spring. I start thinking about summer and swim suit season and think to myself, “I’m going to work out so that by summer I have at least a four pack and look all toned in a swim suit.” But every summer rolls by and this never becomes a reality.  I end up sticking with my one pack (i.e. my tummy) and “chicken arms” (my term for my skinny arms). I can laugh at it as I write this, but I was reminded that summer is definitely a season, where insecurities about my body run a little deeper.  I think most women would agree.  Continue reading “Swimsuit Insecurites”
