As fall starts to make its appearance, the last warm days are few and far between (not that I mind). But before it’s full on apple picking and hot cider – we decided to head out to our favorite local farm and pick some sunflowers.
It’s official, I’m old. I’m now 28. I woke up stiff and achy, and I’m pretty sure I felt my metabolism die. So in celebration, we decided to pack up the troops and head out on an adventure!
Where to begin? I wish I could come up with poetic words to describe the horror that was my life a little over a month ago, but it wouldn’t be fair or accurate to what was going on. Because I was ragey.

Nursing was something I took for granted. It came easy with both boys – then Evelyn was born, and things changed.
One of the best things about living at the beach…is well, the Beach! Shocker! But what people often ask, is how do I survive a beach trip with 3, 3 and under?
So here are my tips and tricks for a smooth beach or pool trip with the littles!
Enter Binxy Baby! The most amazing mom product ever! It’s a hammock that fits on most store carts and allows you to survive the store with 3!Haha yes, I insta-storied it! Why? Because this was a MAJOR mom win! I felt like I was ruling the mom game! With our shades on and lollipops in hand we conquered the store! Eventually Evelyn will be able to lay in the hammock all on her own. (It can hold a child approximately 6-8 months until they start to sit up on their own.) But for now, the hammock can accommodate her car seat! How cool is that? It’s safety tested to hold up to 50 lbs!! As you can see it straps right in!It’s the best solution! And a safe solution! So many moms unknowingly make a huge mistake and place their infant carrier in the seat of the cart. Sadly a leading cause of infant injury. Yet with the hammock snuggly secured to the cart and the car seat strapped into the hammock, you can shop knowing your precious cargo is safe! Even when big brother wants to help push the cart! Lord knows you need to be buckled in for that!
So all you mamas – head over to Binxy Baby and snag yourself a hammock! I honestly don’t know how we’d survive trips to the store without it!
And because I love my readers: here’s 10% off all products!!(Disclaimer: Parts of this post are sponsored. All images are my own or that of the company in which I’m representing. All thoughts are my own and my honest review of the products. Thank you to Binxy Baby for sponsoring this post!)
It’s Monday, Monday, Monday – do you have the Friday song stuck in your head? No? You do now! You’re so welcome! But alas it isn’t Friday my dear mamas, but it is MOM FRIEND MONDAY!!!!

He got home from work at 2 am last night; and since I couldn’t sleep until he was back, mama is TIRED. So now here I am, absolutely exhausted and yet absolutely happy.
The switch from 2 to 3 has been easier in many ways than I would’ve imagine and harder in others. PPD has roared its ugly head once again and this time I decided enough is enough and contacted my doctor to get help.
Now that mama is taking care of herself, we are all much happier. I get to enjoy the silly moments with the boys and the cuddles with my sweet little Rainbaby. She’s a total daddy’s girl and I know EM loves it! Her big brothers adore her and constantly want to hold and love on her. This girl is not wanting for smooches.
Seeing the bond they already share is heart melting!
Now since I don’t have my MacBook and typing on my phone is no easy venture – I’m just going to leave these pics here and call it a day! But first a quick update.
1. Evelyn has gained weight and is nursing like a champ – so thank you to all who gave us advice, prayed, and sent words of encouragement.
2. There was no Mom Friend Monday this past Monday because it was a holiday weekend – I love yall – but I love my family more. Sorry not sorry.
3. I have a real fun giveaway coming up so be on the lookout on my Instagram! If you’re not following – get with the program dear friend!
