Baby Monitor Recommendations From The BTD Community

Hi friends! Ever since moving to Dallas 10 days ago, I have been in full nesting mode –  it feels so good to have the move behind us and finally be able to have a home for all baby’s things! One of the items I haven’t checked off my list though is a baby monitor. There are so many options – each with so many reviews opinions – that it…

5 Casual Tops I’m Loving Right Now

Hi friends! These tops have been on constant rotation lately as I’ve been in my third trimester. This week, I’m 35 weeks and feeling like clothes are getting harder and harder. I put together a reel on my instagram (been wanting to do that for months!) and I thought it would be easiest to link all the looks in one spot! All these tops are NON maternity but they’ve worked…

My Go-To Bras During Pregnancy

Hi Friends! I’ve had a few questions from the BTD community about which bras have worked best for me during pregnancy. I struggled to answer this question at first – there are so many options. And bras tend to be such a personal thing – something that works for me, may not work for you. BUT, now that I’m almost eight months into pregnancy, I’ve finally figured out what really…

Denver Dining Room & Kitchen Photo Tour

I just posted this photo on instagram saying that we’re packing up our kitchen today and realized that I’d never actually shared these images of our Denver kitchen and dining room on the blog! I’ve had this sitting in drafts for months! So I wanted to get the blog post up before we officially move to Dallas at the end of this week – gah crazy times right now! Denver…

The Vibe I’m Going for With the Nursery

I’ve been meaning to put all my thoughts together in a blog post to document my process with getting the nursery ready.  I didn’t get started until pretty in my pregnancy because we weren’t sure where we were going to live. Up until late November, we had so many things were up in the air, so it was hard to make plans.  But now that we know we’ll be in…

How I’ve Been Working Out Through My Pregnancy

One of my most frequently asked questions during my pregnancy has definitely been how I’ve been working out throughout. And I totally get why! Working out during pregnancy is something that many people feel differently about – there are so many opinions and lots of guidance on the subject that it can be difficult to navigate.

Second Trimester Q&A

I’m a little late to writing this post since I’m currently 30.5 weeks pregnant, but I still wanted to close out my second trimester with a few questions and answers. I went through all the questions you guys submitted via Instagram last week and rounded up the top questions. I always love reading about other people’s experiences and love hearing all the little things that make each journey unique. Plus,…

Hi friends! I’m SO thrilled to finally be sharing about our huge move! It has taken up SO much brain space lately and I’m excited to be able to talk and share about it openly now that things are settled and in place (probably goes without saying… there were a lot of moving pieces that needed to get sorted before sharing…). So let’s start here… GOODNESS, it has been QUITE…

Mayple Soy Salmon

Today I am so excited to share one of my favorite recipes. Duncan and I eat this (at least) a couple times a month – its delicious AND simple. I haven’t always been comfortable cooking, and lets be honest, I’m still not that comfortable. But, it has definitely been one of my favorite pastimes this year. I love finding easy, go-to recipes. I also love spending time in the kitchen…

Denver Office Photo Tour + Home Decor Shops I Love

I apologize for this JUST being published, but I’m thrilled to finally share the finished realists of my Denver office! I LOVE it! Of all the rooms we decorated in the house, I think this one took me the longest to figure out because I couldn’t figure out how I wanted to lay it out. I knew I needed a full length mirror in here for outfit try-ons and styling,…

Duncan’s 2020 Playlists

A few weeks ago, I teased that Duncan had been working on a third playlist to finish out 2020. If you missed them, he shared the first playlist in this blog post he wrote during quarantine. He shared what he had been reading, listening to, and learning through that season (such a good post!). And then he put together another playlist later in the year called “I Love You 3,000.”…

Things I’ve Used During Pregnancy So Far

I’ve been putting this post off for weeks because I kept thinking I needed more time to truly figure out what my favorite things were and what I used the most. But then I realized I was putting too much pressure on myself to have the “perfect” or most researched answers. When the truth is, I bought a bunch of stuff and then gravitated towards using a handful of things.…
