Traveling to Europe with a Toddler


Hello friends, Today I am going to tell you all about our trip to Amsterdam & Paris with our one year old, Hudson, in tow. My husband had to travel over there for work and because our friends were currently living in Amsterdam we decided to make a trip out of it. Notice that I say trip not vacation ;). We went in July which was wonderful because the weather was gorgeous. Before we went I searched for any advice I could find about traveling with a toddler. I was so excited but so nervous about taking a one year old on a 8 hour plane ride. Now, I am no expert on traveling with kids especially because we only had one at the time so I am sure some of you could give me even better advice. I found some really helpful posts from Amber Fillerup Clark and Jenny from Fawn Design, and Oh Joy that helped me feel very prepared. However, no matter how prepared you are there are gonna be moments of stress and chaos which all of you mothers know! But a few helpful tips I found I have mentioned below. . . . (more…)


Momma Confession #1

Confession #1

So about seven months ago I had put my son Hudson in his exersaucer/jumper. He was nine months old at this time and he absolutely loved jumping. I ran to the bathroom because let’s be honest, potty breaks are very limited for moms. Hudson is jumping and laughing away as usual so I know he is fine. As I come back into the room I cannot believe what I see. My son is jumping and sliding his feet around in something brown on the floor beneath him. Shit just got real. Excuse my language but that in fact is what it was. He had pooped out of his diaper and it had slid right down his leg onto our wood floors and he had smeared it all over with his feet. This is that moment in mom-hood where you can either freak out, laugh or get the camera (more…)


Wife Confession #1

Hello friends, Welcome to my Confessions as a new wife and momma. I will be sharing a confession once a week. I hope you come join in on the laughter as I share with you a funny little piece of my crazy silly life.

CONFESSION #1. . . .as a new wife

So a few weeks into my marriage (around 2 years ago) I was doing our laundry. My husband, Ross, had lived in our house for about 4 years before we got married. After we got married I moved into his house and he had all of the necessities covered when it came to laundry and cleaning supplies. My husband being the very sweet guy he is would not normally mention anything bad about the laundry. However, he noticed his clothes were not getting that clean. So he kindly mentioned this fact to me one morning. Now because I am a new wife I am trying to do everything perfect and be as close to June Cleaver as I possibly can. (more…)
