For the last six or so months we have been working on a Christmas gift for my mom and dad from the kiddos! Since Atticus (and Rosie!) love taking pictures we thought it would be fun to do a memory book of photos the kids take while over at my mom’s spending time with her – memories through their eyes (although we wanted Atticus to be in the pics too, so we took some). We ordered a blank scrapbook and a FUJIFILM instax SQUARE® SQ6 instant print camera and have been filling the pages with all the little squares of memories!

Sharing some looks for your family that have pieces all under $40!! We got the looks from Amazon Fashion and I wanted to show you some of my favorite pieces. I love these dresses! Granted it ended up being a little short with my bump.. BUT they are so affordable and come in short sleeve, tank or long sleeve and also comes in lots of colors!! Also love this cardigan which I am also wearing in green in my second look below! I love long knit dusters to throw over dresses or sweaters in the fall and winter.

I wanted to share some new podcasts I have been listening to a lot lately! I go back and forth between listening to books and podcasts while driving, working out or traveling, but podcasts usually win since I love that I can finish an episode while at the gym or on a drive. Here are some new ones I have been loving and at the bottom I will have a list of the ones I have already mentioned but still listen to all the time.

I feel like all my posts lately are these list style posts but I just really love lists!!! I had the weekend with just the kids and I while David was in Utah. It was really fun but also really exhausting just because lately I have really felt the pregnancy exhaustion but I tried my best to get through it and still take the kids out to do fun things! And luckily my dad took them out for a fun adventure for a couple hours while I took a little snooze which was sooo nice 🙂 Here is my little list on 12 things pregnancy and motherhood edition …

Ah you guys Hawaii just felt like home it was amazing! Felt so good to be back. We booked this trip a long time ago with some credit card points we had – David actually booked it for a Mother’s Day gift and we were supposed to go in August but had to switch dates to November. We spent most of our time on Oahu and then some on Kauai. It was our first time to Kauai and it is beautiful. I do think we will stick to Oahu mostly though just because it is always nice to have a spot where you know people to hang out with, your favorite food spots, your beaches, etc. I love the familiar feeling of Oahu but I was glad we finally got to see Kauai and it is as beautiful as everyone says.
