oh yeah, I have a blog!

First off, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the sweet comments/emails about my last post. Truly means a lot!

Last night was a doozy. For some unknown reason, Rae was up from midnight to almost two and of course on a night that we decided to stay up past our normal ten o'clock bedtime.. needless to say a cup of coffee was drank this morning and she is snoozing away right now.

I had plans to go to the lavender festival this weekend because my love for lavender is real. I am still not 100% sure if it truly works, but we add lavender essential oil to Rae's baths and use a coconut oil and lavender lotion on her each night and I actually feel like it works. It even helps with diaper rashes and I always keep a smaller sized jar in my purse just in case she gets any scrapes while were out and about. 

Back to the weekend-- if it doesn't decide to reach another 100 degree's I think we're heading to the lake because this mama needs to get out of the house and a good hike/lake day sounds perfect... and I'm just too excited to get Rae (and I) back in a bathing suit!!

This post was completely random and I blame it on the lack of sleep.. I promise next weeks's posts will be better and a lot less sporadic because this girl needs to get back into a routine and blogging better will be apart of it! 

Cheers to the weekend!


  1. Ugh, we all go through days and nights like this! That's exactly the reason I drink coffee!

    I've heard a lot of great things about lavender oil. I may have to try it out!

    Happy weekend!!!

  2. I never drank coffee before having Sydney. Now I drink it most mornings. Lol. We all go through those nights! They are so hard!

  3. Disappointed in the quality of this post. I needed to hear more about the lavender & see more of the pics you posted on IG & Facebook.

    Rae, on the other hand, is absolutely adorbs! I cannot wait to see her when you guys come in town for the Sprinkle :) :) :)
