I hope you are all enjoying your summer! We have finally started to get some warmer weather here in the Inland North West, and I am beyond excited about it! I have finally been able to break out some cute summer clothes, and have teamed up with PinkBlush to share two of my favorite summer items! I was a huge fan of their clothing when I was pregnant with Emersyn. I have several tops from their online boutique that I wore almost everyday during my pregnancy with her. I was thrilled to find out that they also make non-maternity clothes. They have some really cute things, and the prices are always reasonable.
The first thing that I fell in love with was a beautiful pink kimono! I have loved wearing it with a simple white top and jeans. So easy to style, and very comfortable! I also plan on wearing it over dresses and as a beach cover up… if it ever gets warm enough to put on a bathing suit. ha.
The second thing I received from PinkBlush was their iconic maternity/nursing robe. I wanted one so badly when I was pregnant with Emersyn, but I never ended up purchasing one. Emersyn is well over 1 year old now, but I am still nursing her regularly so I decided that I could still use one. And it was the best decision I have ever made- I live in this robe! It is light weight, comfortable, and perfect for warmer summer mornings! My favorite features of this robe (aside from the fact that it is beautiful) are the length, and how it has a hidden tie so it stays closed but can still be opened just enough at the top to nurse. It really is worth the investment if you are thinking of getting one, even if you are no longer pregnant!
I’m so excited to continue styling these items for the summer!
What are you loving this summer? Have you tried anything from PinkBlush?

We are summer ready at out house, but the weather is just not cooperating! It hasn’t been above 60 degrees in weeks it feels like. I’ve been using my Fawn Design diaper bag non-stop this summer, and today I pulled out some of my favorite summer time goodies I’ve been carrying around.
What have you been carrying this summer?

Here are a few fun things we did this week.
Farmers Market fun! Everyone was tuckered out from playing and snacking on seriously delicious strawberries (and chips).
We finally had a day hot enough to bring out the pool and water table. I don’t understand how people in Washington get much swimming done- I feel like if its below 75, its too cold!
We also took a lot of walks this week. Taking advantage of the sun- and its just so sweet to see Randsom look after Emersyn!
Happy Weekend to you all!
We were blessed to be able to spend Memorial Day with family this year. It has been wonderful having Grant’s family in town so often. We love spending time with them, and I’m happy the kids are able to be with that side of the family so often. We spent the day enjoying cooking out, and running around outside in the beautiful weather! I am a huge lover of Memorial Day (and the 4th of July)- they have always been a close second to Christmas in my mind. Something about the start of summer and spending time with family outdoors.
I know that these holidays are hard earned by our troops, and that many of them did not get to enjoy the day with their family. I am so thankful for all the sacrifices made by those who choose to serve our country.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart on this Memorial Day.
We did something exciting a few days ago. We went out to eat at a restaurant with the kids. This may not seem like that big of a deal, but for our family it was a huge moment. We have not taken Randsom (and now Emersyn) out to eat since we found out about his severe food allergies… that was almost 3 years ago.
After a lot of research and phone calls with managers, I finally found a place that I felt somewhat safe taking him to eat. It is a little Mexican restaurant near our house. We loaded the kids up and headed out for some tacos. Randsom was SO excited that he was finally going to eat out- he could hardly believe that he was allowed to eat the food. It was such an exciting experience for him and for our family. I, of course, was terrified the whole time that he would have a reaction and monitored him closely for several hours after he ate… and he was fine. We are looking forward to more taco nights. And maybe even finding more new places to try.
I can’t believe Emersyn’s birthday has come and gone! I now have a 1 year old little lady.
We had so much fun celebrating Emma yesterday with family. I think she had a lot of fun, I am so thankful that Grant’s parents and sister and my mom and sister were able to come to town and help us celebrate. Emersyn seemed to enjoy all the attention. She also loved all the party decorations, especially the flowers!
I am especially proud of the birthday cake I made for her. After my two children, I’m pretty sure it is the best thing I’ve ever made ;). It was dairy and egg free, and tasted delicious! I will post her 1 year update soon, but for now here are a few pictures from her party!
Here are some photos from Emersyns 9th and 10th months of life! Because I am so behind, I will wait to do her update when I share her 11 month photos. I can’t believe she is 11 months old… better start the first birthday planning!
Everyone goes through phases in life.
These past few months have been a hard season for me. It has been a very long winter. I’ve experienced the “winter blues” more than I ever have before, but that is something to talk about in its own post. Today, I’m just here to say that I am back to blogging again! Thank you for everyone who has continued to follow me on my other social media! I’m excited to start this process again and bring in some fresh new things for Spring!
Here is to some happy blogging!
We were blessed to have some Christmas pictures taken this year, and I’m so excited about them! We loved the photographer who took our family photos a few months ago- and she was doing a Christmas special that we couldn’t pass up. I have been so bad about sending out Christmas cards, but this year- I’m on it! Hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!
