Our Twin Gender Reveal!

In case you’re new here or if you missed it, we recently announced that my husband and Kevin and I are expecting… and it’s twins!  If you’d like the full back-story of the announcement you can check that out here.  Also, if you’re interested in learning about our fertility journey, you can read about that here.

We knew from the beginning that a big gender-reveal party wasn’t really our thing.  I didn’t want to find out the genders of our twins in front of a large group of people… I really wanted Kevin & I to find out together – privately- so we could soak in the moment.  He agreed.  We booked a private gender ultrasound for around 18 or 19 weeks after not being able to find out at our previous ultrasound.

We found out the news, and I cried tears of joy.  I would have never admitted that I had any preference for what we’d get… but we got what was deep-down my dream scenario.

So, we’re really excited to announce that we’ll be adding…

My Most Important Secrets For Healthy Hair

Let me be brutally honest here… I don’t consider myself a hair or beauty expert by any means.  I enjoy trying new products and testing new styles but I keep my overall routine pretty minimal.

I don’t like spending a lot of time on my hair (or any of my beauty routine for that matter) but I DO like to look well-maintained.

Given my low-key style, I’ve been surprised lately at how many people have been asking for hair advice and tutorials, but before I get into any content about my favorite styling tips and tricks… I wanted to start with what I believe to be the most important aspect of beautiful hair… KEEPING IT HEALTHY!

Our Fertility Story: The Journey To Becoming Twin Parents

If you haven’t read my recent pregnancy announcement post, you may want to start there first… but long story short, my husband and I are overjoyed that we are expecting twins!  I had referenced our fertility journey briefly and since sharing our news and mentioning our fertility struggle again, I’ve since received countless emails and DMs requesting the specifics or asking questions, so I wanted to prioritize sharing our story with you.

Over on my Instagram, I asked what specific questions you have and I’ll try my best to answer them all here.  If you do have any additional questions after reading the post, please feel free to post a comment below.  I’ll be monitoring the comments closely and will reply and/or update the post accordingly.  I’d love to have the discussions here vs. my DMs or email if possible so that everyone can benefit from the conversation.

Where to Buy Plus Size Workwear

Maybe I’m weird, but workwear is one of my favorite categories to shop.  Now that I don’t work in an office, I have fewer excuses to buy plus size workwear but I still love a good blazer, dress, or nice pair of slacks.

I know finding the perfect workwear can be difficult for people of all sizes, but it can be even harder when you’re plus size.

Not to mention… even figuring out what is/isn’t acceptable in your workplace can be overwhelming when you’re starting a new job.  In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with “over” dressing.  You know the saying… “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

I think it holds some weight.  Not to mention, it’s fun to dress up, especially when your dressy clothes are equally comfy.

Special Announcement – Life Update!

I’ve been keeping a big secret from you…  and it has been SO hard to stay quiet.

You may have noticed that you’ve seen a bit less of me here and on social media in the past few months.  I had shared that I was taking a bit of a hiatus but didn’t tell you why.

There’s actually not just one reason… there’s two.
