How I Told My Husband I’m Pregnant + 9 Ways You Can Tell Yours

April 21, 2020

Disclaimer: I was so nervous to tell my husband “I’m Pregnant!” We weren’t necessarily trying – so I knew I wasn’t going to get one of those “No way?!” excited reactions that go viral. I knew going into this he was going to be shocked & it was going to be comical. We have two boys already who are 6 & 9 (on Sunday!) so we kind of thought having another child at this point would feel like starting over.…

Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are – Give Back with General Mills & Costco

May 29, 2019

This post is sponsored by General Mills but, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Did you know more than 10 million kids enter a Children’s Hospital across North America every year?
