“Are you sure you really want me to be there?”
The answer was a resounding YES back to my mom who asked me the night before I delivered my first baby if I was sure I wanted her to be in the delivery room with me. I appreciated her sensitivity for not wanting to intrude on such a sacred moment for my husband and myself but there are just those things in life that, no matter how you get…you just want your mom. And I wanted her there….without a question. Read More
I have had several conversations recently centered around kid’s bedtime routines and what a LONG and often stressful thing it can be. Both parents and kids are worn out by this time and there always seems to be the tension of the adults wanting to rush through it so they can finally relax and then the kids pulling out every stall tactic in the book to not have to go to bed.

“Rock me mama” he said as I laid him in his crib for a nap. Most days I tell him ‘not today buddy’, eager to get to my alone time I have during the afternoon while the kids rest...but today I scooped him up, legs hanging way over my arms and sat in the rocking chair. He asked me to sing Holy Holy Holy and it wasn’t long before big sister came in, hearing us sing, and crawled in my lap too. Read More
Are you planning a trip to Disney and have your kids outfits planned out each day but aren’t sure what to wear yourself? I recently was asked what I wear when we go so I thought I would put together a post for those who like a little guidance on how to pack for a trip to the Magic Kingdom. Read More
New year resolutions have never really appealed to me as it makes me feel more stressed than motivated (because I’m an enneagram 9) but I do recognize it’s a good time to start fresh and establish a few goals to reach for within that year. My plate feels full as it is so I didn’t want to add anything beyond what would be realistically attainable, so I decided that a few simple things would be feasible. Read More
“You are always on your phone…”
His words stung as they came out of his mouth but I knew it was only because they were true. My husband and I had been having some little arguments recently, mostly centered around things that bothered us about one another (those are always SO fun, right!?!) and this was at the top of his list of things about me that irk him. The whole day had been a little tense and the car ride home from dinner that night was pretty quiet with the exception of the backseat noise from the kids. As I sat in the passenger seat of the car, scrolling photo after photo, swiping story after story…he pointed out what I already knew to be true: I am always on my phone…and I hate it.
I probably harp on making easy dishes far too much but I honestly don’t know how people with kids have time to make elaborate meals. I assume they either eat out or order in and while there isn’t anything wrong with either of those, its just logistically difficult with small kids in a restaurant and becomes quite expensive over time.

Hi! I’m Blaire.
I’m a wife, a mom, a follower of Christ and many other things...but those things are the important things.
I am a proud Texan that is sinking my toes deeper into the Florida sand everyday and loving it.
Before I talk any more about myself…I want to introduce you to a few other women as well that will help give you more context into why I am who I am.
Particularly three Texas women... Read More
