The things you actually need for baby (& you!)

Monday, September 17, 2018

Until about a month ago I thought I was totally ready to bring this little baby in to the world. I had her changing table, her crib, the rocker I plan on sitting in to feed her. I had all the clothes I could imagine and the nursery was decorated.

It wasn't until my gf's came in town and started looking through the stuff I had, that I quickly realized how much I didn't have to bring a human home. Plus I didn't realize there are certain things I needed for myself. I thought I had that part all figured out. Welp, turns out, mama needed some things just as much as baby.

I cannot be the only mama out there who has no clue what she'd need. This is the list, most of which you can get on Amazon, that'll make your life and babys life easier.


For Baby: 
  1. Nose Frida
  2. Diapers in size newborn, one and two
  3. Wipes
  4. Aquaphor
  5. Rectal Thermometer (for under 6 mo) and forehead thermometer (for over 6 mo)
  6. 5 ounce and 9 ounce bottles + different nipple sizes - I LOVE the comotomo bottles.
  7. Saline nose spray
  8. Grooming Kit
  9. Boon Bottle Drying Rack
  10. Bottle brush
  11. Butt Paste (small one for diaper bag and big one for changing table)
  12. Infant tylenol
  13. Shampoo, conditioner, baby lotion
  14. A bunch of plain onesies: I love these little Gerber ones
  15. Travel Bottle Cleaner
  16. Pacificer
For Mama: 
  1. Pumping storage bags
  2. Pump sterilizing bags
  3. Baby carrier, my Solly baby is my fav. 
  4. Nipple pads that freeze
  5. Disposable and Non-disposable breast pads
  6. Lansinoh Nipple Cream 
  7. Cozy undies, bras, jammies and robe. 
  8. Hand sanitizer
  9. Dishwasher cage (to wash all those small parts!)
Happy Shopping mamas!

If you haven't heard about the Fab Fit Fun box you are missing out. It's a box with tons of goodies in it that comes every quarter. My favorite part about this box, you get real sizes (no samples), the products are amazing, you can semi-personalize your box and since it only comes once a quarter, you're getting a box full of products, not just a bunch of small stuff.

Mapiful

Monday, September 10, 2018

Happy Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Spoiler alert - we did not have a baby this weekend. But we watched college and NFL football (Go Broncos!), we slept in and I ate pancakes two days in a row. I'd call that a great weekend. But ya know what? I'm ready to stop thinking of every weekend as our last weekend to do something and instead our first weekend to do something with baby girl.

Sooo, if little miss baby girl would show up, it would make this week even sweeter.


Anyways, if you know me, you know I'm super sentimental about kind of random things.
  • I love the letter K, it started because of my first name and now because of my last name. 
  • I love things that represent Arizona, cacti, mountains, sunsets, anything with Arizona printed on it. 
  • I love a good quote, especially OTH. 
  • The TV show Friends is my comfort show and makes me feel closer to my gfs. 
  • I still have my baby blanket  - does this make me too sentimental? 
Anyways, you get the point. I love things that carry happy memories surrounding my friends and my family. So, when Mapiful reached out to me to design my own map of a special place, I knew what that special place was right away, Lone Tree, Colorado. The sweet little town we call home. The sweet little place we'll bring our daughter home too, watch her grow up and grow our family. Adam and I haven't lived here long, but already this town has had such a huge impact on our lives.

There were a lot of options to pick from and that's the cool part. You can pick a place anywhere in the world and then design the map the way you want it. Did you study abroad in Paris? Done. Are you from a small town in Nebraska? They got it. Love San Diego? This is your map. I love the sentiment of picking of place special to you. 
So what is Mapiful? The world is at your fingertips with Mapiful. They provide you with the tools to let you choose from any place in the world and design your own unique map poster. Explore, zoom, customize and order. Voilà, your place of birth, favorite neighborhood or just your happy place framed on your wall, in your home. 
Head over to the website and start designing your special place and while you're at it, tell me what place you picked and why. I love hearing peoples special places and stories.

Happy Monday sweet friends, lets make this a great week.

Review + Giveaway: Trust Beauty

Friday, September 7, 2018

Happy Friday! We made it through the week, hallelujah!

I've been pretty vocal about that fact that pregnancy hasn't done my skin a ton of favors. Let's be blunt, pregnancy has killed my skin. The "glow" I got was mid-summer sweat and I found myself breaking out more than I anticipated.

At the very beginning of my pregnancy. I turned to my BFF to help me with some tips. I got a new cleanser, day cream and started using Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Within days. I saw a change, but I knew I needed a little more help. 

I needed a little bit more targeted help. Overall, I was seeing a change in my skin, but knew I needed to jump in a little more. 



I met Tom, the owner of Trust Beauty and was amazed by his product. I started religiously using the night cream and the enzyme mask and I swear by the results. My face is so much clearer and I finally have that pregnancy glow. I've been using the Commit Night Cream and the Honor Enzyme Mask for the last 2 weeks and absolutely love it. 

The one thing I really love about the products, they smell amazing. They are not harsh, so I never felt a reaction or any sort of burning sensation. This says a lot because being pregnant my skin is so sensitive. I love that their products are natural and don't use any super harsh chemicals. This was huge for me when picking out pregnancy skin care products. I didn't want to use retinoids or chemicals (which when researching products is hard to find ones without!). 



Here's what Trust Beauty says about the Commit Night Cream 
  • Repairs and nourishes skin overnight
  • Delivers adaptogens deep into the skin
  • Enhanced anti-aging benefits
  • Keeps skin moist and dewy all night
  • Safe for all skin types, including sensitive, and acne prone skin
  • With Vitamin A and Panax Ginseng
  • Made in USA, Vegan, 100% Cruelty-Free
Here's what Trust Beauty says about the Honor Enzyme Mask
  • Infuses moisture and hydration
  • Fruit enzymes digest dead, dull dry cells.
  • May be used before makeup to enhance application
  • Safe for all skin types
  • With pumpkin and pineapple
  • Made in USA, Vegan, 100% Cruelty-Free
And because I love all of you, Tom, the owner of Trust Beauty has graciously given me one of each product to giveaway to you! Hooray. You can enter either here or via Instagram!


Good luck! Winners will be announced next Tuesday!

Recipe: Paleo Banana Bread

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

How was your labor day everyone? Is it just me or does labor day kind of bum you out? It's like the official closing of summer! Granted its going to be hot here for another month or so, labor day always acts as the bookend of a great summer. 

This summer was on for the record books. We celebrated baby girl, twice. I celebrated one of my best gf's baby. We traveled to Omaha, Arizona, Steamboat Springs, Vail, and Breckenridge. We had visitors, date nights and we set up the nursery. We binged watched Ozarks and Yellowstone and spent time together just us two.

It was a great summer, but I'm so excited for what fall has in store for us. Getting into the spirit of fall to me screams banana bread. Is there anything better than a brisk fall day and the smell of fresh banana bread wafting through the house? I think not. 

This is my mama's recipe, with the flour subbed to make it paleo. You're gonna love it. 


Ingredients:
  • 4 bananas, mashed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons oil (coconut, vegetable, ghee)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (regular flour)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
How to Make:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine bananas, eggs, nut butter and oil. 
  3. Once mixed, add in almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and sea salt. Mix. 
  4. Grease a loaf pan and pour your mixture in. 
  5. Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let cool, eat! 
Happy Tuesday friends. Here's hoping your week back after a long week goes quick!

38 Week Bumpdate!

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Happy Tuesday friends! It's been so long since I've done a bumpdate - 5 weeks to be exact! Needless to say, so much has changed since then!  It's crazy to think this will be my last bumpdate! Then I get to update you on BABY!

We had our 38 week appointment today and baby girl looks and sounds good, but she's not ready to come out just yet. Keep your fingers crossed that we're getting closer! And as we get closer, if you don't mind throwing in some "quick and healthy" delivery prayers, I'd totally appreciate it! Let's get to the update!
How far along: 38 weeks! 
Size: Baby Girl is as big as a winter melon (what is a winter melon?), Pomeranian or ukulele, you pick! My app says she's measuring between 6.2 to 9.2 pounds (WHAT!) and between 18.9 and 20.9 inches! Girlfriend is a big girl! 
How I’m feeling: I've had some new pregnancy developments since 33 weeks. I have pregnancy carpal tunnel. which basically means my right hand always feels like it's asleep. Literally cannot hold things with that hand, pick up things, it's hard to take out my contacts with my right hand. And by the end of the day it's painful. Apparently this happens in the late third trimester. Oh and the heartburn and lack of sleep are still there. But I've been taking advantage of naps.  
Cravings: Sweets. Guys, this little girl is gonna come out full of popsicles.  
Nursery: Literally everything is done. Lights are hung, shelves are hung, all her furniture is in. It's decorated, the clothes are washed, the diapers are put away. We even have her Halo bassinet for our room set up and the little sleeper swing for the family room put together.  
Workouts: None, can I blame being too pregnant? We go for small family walks when Adam gets home from work, but they are pretty minimal. 
Movement: Yes! All the time, all day long, especially at night when I lay down. GF loves to dance I'm pretty sure. And maybe this is in my head, but when I poke her, she pokes back.  
Things to remember: These last few weeks of quiet moments with Adam. Even though we both are getting a little anxious, knowing that it's the last time its just us two is so special. Sleeping in, watching TV together, going to dinner, running errands. I'm really enjoying my time with just him and feeling kind of protective of our personal time. 
We are so close guys. This anticipation is unlike anything I've ever felt. I am almost so excited that it makes me want to cry when I think about her because I just cannot wait much longer to meet her. We are so darn close.

Any last minute advice? Send it my way!

Fun things to do when you just cant anymore

Friday, August 24, 2018

Summer flew, amiright? I'm pretty June and July were 3 days long and now we're a week away from labor day. While I'm not wishing summer away, I'm pretty dang excited for fall. I love those warm summer nights, but I'm ready for cool fall breezes and boots.

The dog days of summer are almost gone and before we know it we'll be welcoming winter wondering where those sunny warm days went. But, before we kick summer to the curb, there are a few things left on my bucket list!

  • Grab your best friends, a cocktail and hit up some karaoke. 
  • It's almost labor day. If you haven't booked a trip, skip the flight and take a road trip! If you're looking for a good road-trip playlist, I've got the best jams and podcasts for ya. 
  • Learn how to bake the best cakes at My Make Studio.
  • Shop for all your ski gear on Ski Rex, Epic Mountain Gear's big labor day sale. 
  • Binge watch Younger or The Bold Type. Do it. Then lets chat about them.
  • Book a trip for the winter when you need a great tan and a break from the cold weather. This is usually a great time for travel sales! 
  • Taking a cooking class at The Seasoned Chef. Then throw a dinner party for your friends! 
  • Read a good book. Might I suggest this one or this one
  • Have a craft day at Upstairs Circus
  • Go on a hike! 
  • Go to a concert! Red Rocks still has some amazing concerts on the calendar!
  • Do some fall cleaning, ya know like spring cleaning. The best season for clothes is upon us and we could all probably use a little room in our closet! Ps. If I was shopping these are the pieces I want now! 




  • Hit up your local farmers market. If you live in a state with winter climate, labor day might be the end of your farmers market. Grab those fresh peaches while you still can! 
  • Baseball games! There is something so summery about hot dogs, fresh cut grass and cold beer. 
  • One last huge summer BBQ with all your friends.
  • Drink the rose, summer beers and cold white wine. Before you know it, it's stouts and pinot noirs! 
  • Wear white. Duh. 
Whats on your end of summer bucket list? This year I'll be taking a break from fun labor day plans, but that doesn't mean I can't live vicariously through you! Share your fun plans in the comments!

Five Things

Thursday, August 23, 2018

You know those moments in your life where you know your life is about to change but you're not sure when or to what extreme? That's where I'm sitting as I await this baby girl. We're 19 days from due date and I feel like I'm sitting on the brink of everything. 

It's this feeling of not knowing what to expect, dying to know what's next and learning to sit still while you wait for the best surprise ever. I've said it before, but learning to live my life in seasons is so incredibly helpful in a time like this. I'm currently in the anxious waiting season knowing that at any moment, I'll be in the newborn season. It's exciting, it's nerve-wrecking, but it's so incredibly amazing. 

I'm slowing life down and bringing to back to the things I do know. 5 things. My very important 5 things. 

my smokin' hot hubs and baby daddy.
my babies before my other baby comes.
my best friends.
a little about me. 
my favorite announcement.

Hospital Bag Checklist: The Things you Really Need

Monday, August 20, 2018

Packing a hospital bag is stressful, especially if you've never packed one before! When I sat down to think of all the things I would need for two days in the hospital with a new baby, I was immediately overwhelmed. Some people tell ya you need nothing, others give you a list of 100 things.

So what did I do? What I've done 1000x. I reached out to my friends, who luckily wrote a whole list for me, read other blogs and checked with my hospital. I think I've gathered some of the necessities and some of those non-necessities (like a great face cream) that'll just make me feel a bit more at ease and like myself.

Since I have no idea what 2 days is going to be like in the hospital, I may have over-packed.


Below you'll find a printable checklist to help you prepare! What did you pack in your hospital bag?

FOR MOM // 
Insurance Card: The non-fun part of going to a hospital. Make sure it's in your wallet, hospital bag or wherever you won't forget. 
Slippers & Socks: I love these Lemon slippers, they have a nice bottom. Plus, I LOVE these aloe socks. They're to be used post-workout, but hey, labor is a workout! 
Pillow: I'm partial to my good pillow. 
Snacks: Remember how hungry you were pregnant? I can only imagine that is worse after labor. 
Iphone charger and Cell phone: Duh. My gf told me to buy an extra long charger so you make sure it reaches your hospital bed. 
Toiletries: These are the things you may not need but will make you feel better.
  • Brush
  • Hair ties
  • Lotion
  • Lip Balm
  • Makeup
  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Contacts and glasses
  • Towel
Robe: I bought this super cute one from Milkmaid Goods and baby girl has a matching swaddle because CUTE! 
Undies: It was time to buy undies other than thongs. Cue, dark colored Hanes. I bought these super soft ones from Target
Nursing Bra: I wish I would have bought these bras 6 months ago! They are so soft and comfortable and will be perfect for sore nursing boobs.


Nursing cover: Just in case you have visitors. I bought this from Milkmaid Goods too. 
Going home outfit: Keep it comfy and loose (you'll be wearing a pad).  
The Necessities: 
FOR BABY // 
Going home outfit: Baby girl has the cutest little onesie. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, but this will be the first time you take your baby home. I wanted it to be memorable. 
Carseat: Most hospitals will check your car seat before you leave to make sure it's perfect. I love my carseat.


Onesies: From what I'm heard baby is in her diaper and a swaddle most of the time. I threw in a few extra onesies just in case.
Swaddle: I brought a matching one to me and just another muslin blanket. 
Boppy: For breastfeeding! Let the nurses help you! 
Pacifier: Just in case. 
Burp Cloths: I'm using this so I can bring them home to the dogs before we come home. I heard it helps with the transition. 


3 weeks to go everyone! Let the countdown begin!

Tell me, what did you put in your hospital bag?

Why Baby Girl Won't be on Social Media

Friday, August 17, 2018

Last month I did some instagram questions and one of you asked me a question I've been meaning to answer here. Will baby girl be on social media? The easy, quick answer is no.
Before we delve into the major details of that statement, let me preface with, I know this is probably an unpopular opinion (very unpopular). I know most people will think I'm being a little crazy/over-cautious/nuts. But, it's a decision Adam and I have made together and it's one we're comfortable with. 
Also, this post is not meant to be derogatory to anyone who posts their kids on social media, so please don't take it that way. Heck, all my friends and family post their kids on social and I LOVE it. I love seeing my feed littered with adorable babies doing the cutest things. So please, keep posting!
I didn't think I was going to talk about this because I figured who would care. But, since I share everything on social, I figured you would all wonder why I'm not sharing baby girl on social. I'm a little anxious to talk about this because honestly, I get it, I'm in the minority. I know a lot of you will think I'm being nuts or judgmental or irrational. 

But at the end of the day, I'm just trying to figure out what is best for me and my family and it really has nothing to do with anyone else or what anyone else chooses to do with their family.

I get it, our thoughts on this are the way extreme and aren't for everyone. And isn't that the coolest thing about motherhood and parenting and being part of a community where we can talk about these things?  

Social media + baby is a conversation Adam and I had before we got pregnant and our general consensus was we didn't want our kids on social media. Honestly. there wasn't a whole lot of thought past that point. For those of you who don't know, Adam isn't on social media anywhere. Sure, he has a Facebook, but I think his profile picture is one of us from literally 6 years ago. He doesn't love social and felt strongly about not having our kid on it. Hell, he doesn't love his appearance on Everyday Grace as much as he is. If it we up to him, social media wouldn't really exist.

I'm torn on this. I love social media. I'm on it all the time. I share on it, all the time. I love the community I've built and the friends I've made. Because of this, part of me wants to show off this darling little baby everywhere and at every chance I get. But then the mom, blogger and public defender in me gets very nervous about splashing her sweet little face everywhere. I have a public blog, public Instagram and there are a lot of followers I don't know. That makes me nervous.

Maybe if I didn't have this space and it was private to only people I know, I'd feel different.

Another thing I've thought about, we've yet to experience an adult generation who's entire life has been played out for the masses online. I didn't grow up knowing how to pose for Insta-stories or having my face on every social media platform available. Heck, if I want a baby picture, I have to call my mom, ask her to scan it or take a picture of it and then she sends me back a grainy version of six year old Kristen. How will this generation feel when they're 30 and there are naked baby pictures of them all over the web? Honestly, we don't know yet.

To be as transparent as possible, I'm not sure how I feel and since I'm not 100% either way, keeping her off social seems like the right thing for our family now. I share a lot of my life on social, the good, the bad and the ugly, but for now I'll be keeping baby girl private.

I went to college with a girlfriend who has chosen not to post her son or daughter on social and I absolutely love her stance on why. You can read her entire post here, but my favorite line from her post is this;
All in all, one of the greatest benefits we’ve experienced from opting out of sharing photos of Jack online has been the freedom to enjoy his childhood without the pressure to curate it for public consumption.
One thing I do know, I don't want to make this decision for her. I just want her to be a kid.

Am I being overly cautious? Probably. Am I being paranoid? Maybe a little. Do you guys think I'm nuts? I'm sure you do. But if there is one thing I've learned throughout this pregnancy, it is that Adam and I have to make decisions we feel good about. And, if at the end of the day, him and I feel like we're doing the right thing for our family, then that is what we have to do.

So for all of you asking, "how will I see her?" Text me, call me, DM me, lets FaceTime! I'd love to share pictures and videos of her with you if you want to see her! Better yet, come visit :)

Now, tell me your thoughts. What do you think about kids on social media? Am I the extreme? Probably. What's the happy medium? Talk to me.

Things that are more important

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Oh hey Wednesday! How the heck are ya? We're halfway through the week and I'm already dreaming of the weekend! We're enjoying our last few weekends just the two of us. Going out to dinners, brunches, wandering bookstores and enjoying our time together. It's crazy that everything is about to change, so we're enjoying our current normal while we have the time.

Truth be told, life gets busy. And in the midst of that constant busyness it's easy to get caught in the mundane and forget to look at the good stuff, the more important stuff. Some of this stuff is actually important and some is just so dang good.

ONE // I posted this on my Insta-stories a while back. I'm super lucky to have amazing mama mentors in my life. In the midst of figuring out what I'm going to do with this baby and how I'm going to do it, I lost track of the fact that He already knows how this will all play out. Leaning into Him a little tighter as we get closer to our due date.


TWO //  Never look at Nordstrom Baby when you're on a spending freeze because you'll find all the things you shouldn't buy.


THREE // Younger finally gave me everything I needed. I've told you once and twice and three times but this show is so dang good. Stop everything and binge watch this show. Trust me people. Then, when you're done binge watching, let me know if you're #TeamCharles or #TeamJosh.



FOUR // I Think You can, I Think You Can. My gf Chelsea wrote this blog post and I love it. She's inspiration when I need it the most and encouragement when you're feeling down. Stop what you're doing and read it. You'll love it, plus its short. And while you're at it, tell your girlfriends how awesome they are. Supporting other girls is always cool.

FIVE // Bachelor in Paradise is back and honestly I'm much more excited about this show than I was Becca's season of the Bachelor. I totally dig the drama on this show. It's so ridiculous it's good. But, can we talk about Tia and Colton. I mean she says his name 100x within 2 hours, goes on dates with other guys and then kisses him. This is the kind of drama I live for peeps.


SIX // These grandparents kicking butt being grandparents and these kids who I can only hope influence my daughter. Read the post here.

SEVEN // Carrie Underwood is pregnant and she announced her tour. Talk about best day of my life. And she's not coming to Denver until next September meaning I'll have a ONE-YEAR old, meaning I can go. God Bless us all and Carrie Underwood.

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you find joy in the small things and rejoice in those moments, because they're the good ones. What do you consider to be more important?

Let's make the rest of this week the best.
