In about 6 weeks (or less!) I’ll be holding a new bundle of joy in my arms. It’s hard to believe that the time is fast approaching, but I’m beyond excited to welcome baby #3 to the family!!

Dress C/O Pink Blush

In many ways this pregnancy has been very similar to my previous ones, but in some ways I feel like I’m experiencing things for the first time. There’s always something new to learn, a better product or invention, and more knowledge to grow in.

One big difference is that for the first time I’m seriously considering preserving my newborn’s stem cells with Cord Blood Registry (CBR).

I have never been a morning person, and although many people have said that will change after having kids that hasn’t been the case. Do I have to get up earlier because of my little rugrats? Yes. But do I thrive in the morning and do so with glee? Generally speaking, no. Haha.

For the Love of Nature: The Simple Way You Can Give Back to the WWF!

This post is sponsored by Kimberly-Clark Family Care Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I’ve been fascinated with nature, its unique ecosystems, and the beautiful wildlife that inhabits such diverse terrain for as long as I can remember. 

As a child I would frequently visit the library to check out books about animals and the environment. As a teenager I came very, very close to majoring in Environmental Science. And as a college student I had the marvelous opportunity to intern as a park ranger at Alaska’s Denali National Park & Preserve.

Needless to say, I’d love to see my girls take an interest in preserving our planet and its resources, and there’s a simple way we can do so as a family thanks to the Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Amazon!
