We’ve all seen #momgoals around the internet. It has never been something I really liked. Whenever I’ve seen it, it is celebrating glimpses of life that to other moms can seem unattainable. It highlights things like being skinny right after having a baby or having the most Pinterest -worthy 1st birthday party. Now, I’m not saying those things aren’t worth being proud of, but today I want to talk to you about a movement I think we can all celebrate and get on board with – its called #PureGoals.
One of my very favorite parts of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the Kids section. The timing could not be better for Back to School shopping so I love to stock up on basics for all the little people. I won’t lie, last year was kind of a disappointment in the kids sections, but they more than made up for it this year! I’ve gone through all the sizes from Baby to Tween so you have the best of the best to check out!
One of the most popular categories of the Nordstrom Sale is definitely Baby! They almost always go BIG and have some of the best deals, some as good as Black Friday!! It is always one of the sections I check out first because I don’t wanna miss out on any of the steals! I’ve sorted through all my finds, and am sharing the Best of Baby with you today!
This past week I’ve been trying to organize some of Harper’s things and clear out some of the things she has grown out of. Cue all the tears. As I was organizing, I realized it has been a while since I shared some of my favorite baby essentials with you! Whether you are expecting, have a little one of your own, or are heading to a baby shower, I’ve got you covered! I put together a list of my top 15 that can ALL be found at Target, my favorite one stop shop!
Time just keeps on flying by and somehow my BABY is 16 months old already! It could be because she is our last little babe, but Harper seems to be growing up way too fast. Can we not figure out how to slow time down already?! A week or two ago I shared a little bit of a detailed look into the little peoples schedule. Since posting, I’ve had quite a few requests for more details in Harper’s schedule. So today I’m sharing whats new with our little babe + a peak into a typical day for her!

When it comes to having little people, there are a LOT of decisions suddenly thrown at you. It can be a little overwhelming for anyone! I love going to other experienced moms for advice and try to share my own whenever I can, in hopes of helping a nervous new mom somewhere! Joe + I were just shopping at Walmart for a new car seat so we can keep one in his truck for easy transfers. With car seats + our research fresh in mind (not to mention FIVE kids), I thought this would be the perfect time to share 3 tips I use when picking out a car seat.
Knowing Harper is our last baby has been such a different experience. I think for us, it has reminded us to enjoy every little minute since these will be our last “baby firsts”. When it came to designing Harper’s Nursery, I really wanted to savor every minute. I knew it was the last little nursery I’d be creating. So I really wanted it to be a place I loved that I could soak up allll the baby goodness in. If you remember in our California home I had my sweet friend, Annalisa from Oilo Studio help me help put her creative touch on the space. Cause she’s amazing + her eye for modern baby design is out of this world. I could not be happier with how it turned out!
As a mom of 5, it’s rare that I come across something new in the parenting world – especially in the baby years. I’ve been to this rodeo five times over now, so coming across something new with Harper or Houston that I haven’t already experienced with one of the others is rare. I was thrown for a loop when both Houston + Harper came along with such sensitive skin. Since their skin was so sensitive I wasn’t willing to compromise on whatever touched it. After searching and finding the things that worked best for us, I’m sharing what I’m loving most for my babies and how I care for their sensitive skin.
My sister had her baby last week + we’ve been talking all things baby as she prepared for the big day, and what to pack in her hospital bag came up a lot. I feel like I say this a lot, but having been through 5 deliveries + hospital stays, I consider myself pretty experienced. haha. I definitely have my go to’s, and have shared a few of them here + here. So today I thought I’d share the ultimate hospital bag + a little trick on how I got my babies to take a binkie!
This past week flew right by and it is already time for another round of our new feature, Favorite Finds. If you missed last week, this is a new series where I’ll highlight the things I’m getting asked about the most, and my must have finds I’d share with any great girlfriend! With Harper turning one, (cue the tears, you can read her birth story here) I wanted to devote this week’s post to all my favorite finds for Baby’s First Year. Having 5 little people of my own, its safe to say I’ve tested my fair share of products. From must haves for the nursery, baby gear, and sleep helps, I’m sharing it all!
