My Labor and Delivery Story

I want to start this post by saying a few things before we dive in. First and foremost, mom and baby are doing great. We are happy, healthy, and enjoying our new life together. 

Soon-to-be-moms are so often hit with the worst stories and 'advice' when it comes to L&D. How horrible/terrible/painful it is, how your body will never be the same, how this is the worst part of pregnancy... etc etc. Even with my complications, I felt like it wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. And if I could just share that with my past self from a few weeks ago, I would feel a lot better. So I'm hoping that this post can help ease the stress and anxiety for anyone reading this.


My Baby Registry

WHEW! This post turned out to be much longer than I was planning. Now I'm starting to worry that I have *too* much on here. We both have rather large families, so I always think it's best to give people options and maybe err on the side of having too much instead of not enough. If nothing else, this will serve as a good mental wish list of items that will completely cover us for the first year or two.


Crowdsourced Baby Boy & Girl Names

One of my FAQs currently is for boy/girl names that we didn't end up using! I've shared my list a time or two, but I don't like to do it often since we're not done having babies. So I asked you guys for names and you SHOWED UP. Over 250 names for each group and some awesome ideas or thought starters here. I even mixed in a few of our names to the list (but neither our top girls nor boys' name is here!) just to add in a few extra options. Hope this helps!


Vineyard Vines Holiday 2021

And we thought last year was a doozy... in un-Christmas-like spirit, The Palace Hotel is doing renovations this holiday season and they didn't put up their tree! Which left our little tradition up in the air. 


25 Days of Christmas Movies

It's December and you know what that means! Time to turn up some holiday music, bring out the decorations, and snuggle up to some movies. Last year Andrew and I started the tradition of watching a holiday movie every day of December, leading up to Christmas and I wanted to share our list with you all this year.
