In Family, Fashion, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

At nearly 34 weeks pregnant, is it safe to say that I’m in the home stretch? I’m certainly embracing that mentality, and the products I’m sharing about below have been making my life a little more glamorous and bearable during the last month and a half of pregnancy. Here’s what I’ve been loving lately… I took a break from regular fixes for a while, but scheduling a maternity Stitch Fix at 30 weeks was a fantastic way to get excited about … Read More

In Pregnancy by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Pregnancy is a gift. I’ve reminded myself of that more than a few times during this pregnancy. The thing is, I have had a wonderful pregnancy thus far.

Sleep has been amazing, I don’t have any major aches and pains and our pregnancy has been very uneventful. I’ve also been able to stay active, much more so than … Read More

A Quick Florida Trip

Two weeks ago my dad called me up on the phone and asked if we would meet them in Florida for a very quick long weekend.

Although the trip wasn’t planned, and we’re getting close to the … Read More

In Family by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Last week Monday Joe and I had just returned from our trip out to California and I was looking forward to digging into a new week. Fresh off our trip, I had so many good ideas I planned to translate into work and great food finds I wanted to blog about. In my new schedule Mondays are always my at-home days with Ainsley. We go to music class, grab coffee, and do things like run errands, laundry, etc. But Monday … Read More

a day in the life :: pregnancy eats edition

In Family, Food & Recipes, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve documented some of my daily eats on the blog in the past, but I don’t think I’ve ever done a pregnancy edition. Even while pregnant, I still eat like a robot most days, sticking to the same general rotation of foods. Dinner is usually the most varied meal from day to day, but breakfast, lunch and snacks are usually pretty similar. Here’s a look at what a typical day in the third trimester looks like for me: BREAKFAST I usually … Read More
