    We Got a Pool

    Feels like a my childhood dream came true. Well really my childhood dream did come true!  Growing up I always wanted a pool so as an adult I bought one. We’ve had lots of curiosity about the details of our pool – size, cost, liner, ect.. so I figured it would be good to do a blog post with all the details.  Why We Got a Pool Because we’re teenagers at heart. Kidding. We got it because it’s something Aaron and I have always wanted. We recently started a complete home remodel. Aaron has mostly handled the managing of that remodel himself. The pool is something I wanted to do…

    Free Assembly

    Okay, I just got a Free Assembly haul in! I just had a baby and needed to freshen up my clothes so I bought some cute Free Assembly clothes from Walmart. If I’m honest, I was a little nervous about trying these on initially because my body has changed since becoming a mother. I felt so confident trying on clothes from Free Assembly. The clothes are not only great quality but also fit very well. Feeling confident in clothes weeks after having a baby is so wonderful. Free Assembly is one of my go-to clothing lines when it comes to fashion-forward pieces with great price points. I purchased the CUTEST…

    Postpartum Essentials

    I’m four weeks postpartum and I’ve had many request I share a list of my postpartum “must haves.” Some of these items were lifesavers in the days after birth and some of these items I’m still using now! I hope this list helps, little momma!! 1- Slippers Cozy must! I ordered these soft plush slippers a few weeks before having Remington. Some type of slippers at the hospital is a must! I really loved (and still do!) these!! 2 – Robe Aaron gifted me this robe for Mother’s Day the day we went to the hospital. Ohhhh, it was PERFECT! Several IG buddies recommended packing a robe in my hospital…

    Kitchen Backsplash

    Today was a big day! Our backsplash was installed in the kitchen. I’ve been dreaming of this for awhile now. I wanted a slab of quartz to climb the wall from counters to the tongue and groove on our ceiling. For some reason I had a hard time envisioning tile or wood for a backsplash behind the range. I told Aaron, “I just picture a big ol’ slab of something..” So we decided to ask the company who installed our counters about it! This is quartz. It’s the exact same as what we have on our countertops. I originally wanted marble in the kitchen but we were advised countless times…

    Growing Grass – Walmart +

    Walmart+ is our go to! Yep, even for grass seeds. Let me explain. We recently added a pool to our yard, so our yard is a muddy disaster. Our goal is to make this space our own little paradise and the first step to doing that is to add some green grass. We have a three week old baby and both of us are back working. We don’t have the time to hunt all around town looking for supplies. That’s a lot of time spent on the project BEFORE it’s even begun. Thanks to Walmart+ we didn’t have to! One of the many reasons we love Walmart+ is the fast free shipping.…

    Navigating Parenting as an Influencer

    My my, how time is flying… It’s hard to believe that it’s already been over a week since we brought this sweet baby of ours home from the hospital. I know we’re just barely even started with our parenting journey, but I can already tell that all the cliche sayings about how fast it goes by are going to be true. We’ve been trying our best to soak up every moment and all the baby cuddles that he has to offer! As we’re nearing the end of Aaron’s paternity leave, we’ll be navigating what our life looks like being parents and both of us working full time. But it’s time…

    How I’m using Walmart+ in My Personal Life Right Now

    Never in a million years did I dream we’d be completely remodeling our house while 35 weeks pregnant as first time parents… chaotic is an understatement! During these crazy times, Walmart+ has really come to the rescue to help us organize and shuffle through the mess. If you’ve been here a while… you’ve probably heard me talk about how much we love the new Walmart+ membership. With our home completely rearranged, we’ve started moving out room by room and then moving back in room by room as the work is completed. This means spaces have changed! I’ve been truly depending on Walmart+ for the 2 day shipping benefit and ordering baskets, organizers, cleaning items little things that…
