Eloise's Toddler (kind of big girl) Room

When I meant I was back, apparently I meant...not back?   I don't know.  I'll guess I'll figure out what keeping this up looks like for me now that I'm done with school and out in the work world.  Brief update - I began working - I'll be practicing in family practice.  That's about as brief as it gets, although I would like to write more about finishing school at some point.  


But, for now... Eloise's room, rearranged to allow for her toddler bed and of course, her horse 
(we will have to talk more about horses and the intense, intense obsession at a later time).   So, the original plan was to get Eloise her twin bed (this Jenny Lind for The Land of Nod) and some nice horse bedding, perhaps.  In my mind, what was the point of a toddler bed?  Well, we decided to save some money now and wait to buy her twin.  Then we would just add a cheap guard rail to her crib - oh, wait - basically like the front of the crib.  Then we would buy the guard rail that goes with her crib - oh, wait - that's about $20 cheaper than buying a toddler bed.  So, toddler bed it was and now I'm obsessed (ps - I am utterly obsessed with this one - jenny lind, get the trend).  It's so tiny and sweet.  And we purchased some toddler bedding from Pottery Barn Kids.  There's nothing cuter than a mini set of sheets - Let me tell you.  Otherwise, as you can see, we haven't changed much.  Just rearranged. 

El has tolerated the move to a bed weirdly well.  I keep expecting her to go haywire about it, but maybe she was just ready.  She thinks it's a fun place to read books and play.  I also love getting to tell her to "climb into bed" on her own.  So sweet.

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…

The move.

We've had some questions over the past few weeks as to how the adjustment is going for us.   And I kept meaning to write about it earlier, so here we go.  With a smattering of very high quality photos (kidding). 
Overall, we are doing well.  This is not to say we don't miss people, that everything is absolutely wonderful all the time, etc.   Change is really hard, but it is so good, and so stretching for our lives and our faith.  So, good is my overall answer.


Eloise at the Circle. 
For those of you who don't know the whole story of our move, I'll give you the shortest version possible.  Last fall, Zach was offered a hospital medicine job in Southern Illinois (he had been working at his old engineering job the first few months after graduation from PA school).  This decision was made after much deliberation and prayer and applications were sent out just about everywhere (seriously - we were open to anywhere).  The job in Southern Illinois made the most sense and we de…
