Spoiler alert: Do not scroll down to the end of this post just yet (please!)

I don’t know what was more exciting – finding out I was pregnant or finding out the gender of my sweet little baby Hendrix. If you watched my first trimester VLOG, then I’m sure you hated me by the end of it when I left you HANGING on the gender! (the good old cliff hanger move!)

When my doctor told me I could find out the sex of our child as early as 12 weeks (Thanks to a little non-invasive test called NIPT) I …

If you read the part 1 post then you probably know the story of the new home and how that came about. There’s a second part to that story, of course.

Hey guys! Let’s talk about L.O.V.E. Not just any kind of love, but one of the most important kinds of love there is, aka SELF-LOVE. Today I want to give you the best advice about self-love.

Earlier this week, I spotted this quote by Lucille Ball: “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” Can I get an amen?! But seriously, I love that quote. Sometimes it is so easy to pour our love into others, without realizing that we are not feeding ourselves that same …

I have some exciting news to share with you today. When Stevie and I moved to Los Angeles over 4 years ago to chase two separate careers, we never  imagined our dreams would collide and become one. To paint the picture for you: before we got married, I was a hot mess living at my sister’s apartment, and Stevie was a hungry actor living paycheck to paycheck just trying to stay alive in this crazy city. When we joined forces and decided to work on my blog full-time, we were excited about this new venture and the spark it brought …

Shortly after that, I jumped on to Myspace (top 8 what’s up!!) and then Facebook. Fast forward to 2010 – I’m in college and suddenly obsessed with this “Instagram” app.
