We're going cloth!



After much deliberation...asking loads of questions (thanks, friends) and doing a trial run this week, we are switching over to cloth diapers!  I can't wait for our order to arrive so we can really get started.  We've gone back and forth about it (as you might know) quite a bit.  Before she was born, I was pretty sure about them, or at least that we'd switch back and forth.  But the past few months, the disposables have been so...well, easy.  And most have indicator lines (which is, let's be honest, really nice).  So a friend let us borrow a few and we have one of our own, all of which I've been using the past few days.  I've been pretty amazed by how easy it is.  And with an intense amount of school expenses coming up, it should help us out financially.  We won't be asking anyone who watches her to use them if they're not comfortable with it (or if they just don't care to) and we'll still use disposables when we travel, so those indicator lines won't be complete strangers.  And we've got quite a large stock of those to switch off with for now.  Anyways, our diaper of choice will be the bumGenius 4.0 One-Size pocket diaper (and the artist series above).  Ellie's tush is going to look pretty stylin'.  I'm really excited.  I'll keep you guys updated on how it goes...

p.p.s.  They're based in St. Louie...isn't that fun?

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
