Nordstrom must haves for the New England Family

Nordstrom sale is live and we are shopping for the fall and winter seasons. I am picking practical items for the New England Family. From sweaters to rain boots the NSALE is the perfect time to get an amazing deal on what your family will need. I size up for my kids and get them a great jacket. keep in mind North Face runs small, so size up at least 1, I went 2 sizes for my kids because I layer them up to play in the snow. There are lots of womens items on sale, I have some of the items from last year and I have to say that the things I got from the sale ended up being what I repeat wore all winter long.

coordinating Easter outfits for the family

Easter is one of my fav holidays. Ok, I love them all but seriously Easter is my fav holiday to dress for. Now that I have a family I try to coordinate our outfits on holidays. It can be frustrating to come up with matching family Easter outfits, especially if you wait till last minute. Don’t worry I got you! This year I was ahead of the game and have some adorable matching family Easter outfits planned.

Clearly our theme for our matching family easter outfits is yellow and blue this year. Honestly I picked my dress first, I loved it the second I saw it. I matched everyone else around that and I found the cutest Easter dress for Kourtney with a little lamb on it. I love guys in Gingham on Easter! It is also a great reason for men to wear colors other than blue, am I right!?! I found the cutest yellow gingham for Kalvin and several options for Kevin in different colors too. Father and son matching outfits melt my heart.

Every year I get the kids rain boots for Easter and I stuff the boots with goodies. Bubbles, goldfish, gummies, lollipops, play-doh these things make great Easter basket stuffers. I really do not let the kids eat much sweets so I keep our baskets pretty practical. I found a couple extra things at Nordstrom while I was there and linked them here too! Can anyone really have enough matching family Easter outfits and stuffed Easter bunnies?

How I Survived PPD Through Self Care



Here’s the truth about postpartum depression and a look into my own personal story of how I struggled. More importantly, I’m sharing what I did to get me out of the fog made all the difference.

First of all, I have not always been so brave. Up until I became a mom, I was still trying to figure myself out. Kevin and I had Kourtney and we became parents. After giving birth I thought I would just get it, I didn’t. I was so sad and felt like a failure every day. I was successfully breastfeeding and that alone seemed like the biggest accomplishment for me, I didn’t want to change anything because I was afraid I would mess things up. Continue reading
