Hurricane Matthew is coming our way this weekend and it's really put a damper on our weekend plans! Oliver's birthday is on Sunday so there goes his party, he was having pictures made on Friday, and we had family coming into town and now they aren't. Obviously everything can be rescheduled and what matters most is we're safe! Please pray for us that Matthew doesn't hit too hard!

This day last year I was packing and getting ready to go to the hospital to have my Oliver! I'm really thankful it was last year and not this year because the thought of having a baby during a hurricane just doesn't sound appealing! 

Beautycounter brought back their Lip Sheer in Terra and I can't wait to try it! It looks like such a pretty shade that would work for every skin color.

I'm reading After I Do and it's been a nice reality check for myself. I definitely have a hard time finding the balance of being a mom, a full time employee, and wife. Marriage is hard work that's for sure! I'm about half way through the book and can't wait to see if they end up together or not!

Way too many child deaths lately. Jacob Hall from Greenville, SC who was shot in the leg passed away last week and then I heard about a 20 month old who's father left him in the hot car for 7 hours died as well. Just horrible. 

Are you Smartphone Zombie? I'm very guilty of being one and I really need to work on it. I think we've all become a bit addicted to our phones. We can Google anything in seconds and we check our social media accounts every few minutes, afraid we're going to miss something. But what we're really missing is what's going on right in front of us in real life. After reading the article it made decide I don't want to live my life obsessed with my phone anymore so it's something I plan to seriously work on. I'll probably have to leave my phone in a different room because if it's in front of me, I gotta check it!

Thanks to the dollar bin at Target I've got some Halloween decor around the house!

Hope those in Hurricane Matthew's path stays safe and dry!

  1. Good luck with Matthew this weekend!! That is a bummer you have to change all your plans :(

  2. The social media/blog break I took the last month has been so good for me, I was spending way to much time worrying about stuff surrounding my blog and not my real life. I needed a re-set badly. I'm sorry Hurricane Matthew is ruining all your fun plans this weekend, but staying safe is important, I hope it doesn't hit too hard. I still can't believe Oliver is one already!! He is so so cute.

  3. I was just thinking this morning how nerve-wracking it would be to be pregnant right now. Hoping this hurricane misses us!

  9. Gosh it's so true. I'm so guilty of being a mom zombie. I was just saying yesterday how terrible it is that I can no longer just being doing one thing. I wanted to start watching blacklist on netflix to see if I liked it, but I had my computer on my lap doing work and a whole episode came and went and I didn't have a damn clue what happened.

  10. Happy birthday weekend to your baby boy! Hope you guys stay safe.
