The Best Loaded Potato Soup Recipe

The Best Loaded Potato Soup Recipe

I started doing soup Fridays with a group of my co-workers this winter, and I’ve gotten a lot of great recipes. This one has been my favorite, but the person who made it didn’t follow a recipe. So, I got a list of ingredients and tried it a few times while writing down how I cook it. Thought I’d share it on here!

Will's Birth Story

Will's Birth Story

Since I documented my whole pregnancy on my blog, I figured it only made sense to write about Will's birth. I don't plan on getting too graphic with the details, but there will probably be some TMI-type information related to childbirth included in this post. So, if you're not into that, you might want to skip this one. Now let's get to the story (it's kind of a long one).

Weeks 36-40 Bumpdate

Weeks 36-40 Bumpdate

This post is a few weeks late, but I still wanted to do it to document the last weeks of my pregnancy. Week 40 was very rough on me, but ended with a very healthy baby boy at 41 weeks + 0 days. Continue reading to learn about the days leading up to his arrival.

Weeks 31-35 Bumpdate

Weeks 31-35 Bumpdate

This past month has been the toughest one so far, and I have officially reached the "over it" phase of pregnancy.

Adventure-Themed Baby Shower

Adventure-Themed Baby Shower

I am beyond blessed to have so many family and friends back home who came to the baby shower my parents hosted. My mom even let me help with some of the planning, and I got to design some cute things for event including the invitations. Everything turned out wonderfully, and I was able to snap some photos of the bash. Sadly, I did a terrible job getting photos at the very end of set up, and when everyone was there. However, here are the few I took when we first started getting everything around.

Weeks 26-30 Bumpdate

Weeks 26-30 Bumpdate

Another month, another bumpdate! It's been a crazy month, too. I'm officially in the third trimester, and my body sure does feel it now. We also got an unwanted surprise at my last doctor's appointment...

Weeks 21-25 Bumpdate

Weeks 21-25 Bumpdate

Where has the past month gone?! This pregnancy is going by way faster than I anticipated. Getting sick and doing home renovations probably doesn't help slow time down either... But, hey! Let's stop with the spoilers and get to the bumpdate.

Our Gender Reveal Party

Our Gender Reveal Party

It's been a couple weeks since the party, but I still wanted to share some of the photos and a video of the day with all of you! Better late than never :)

Weeks 17-20 Bumpdate

Weeks 17-20 Bumpdate

It's been insane around here with the holidays and the gender reveal party. Now it's time to catch everyone one up on what happened as I approach the half-way point of the pregnancy.

Weeks 14, 15, & 16 Bumpdate

Weeks 14, 15, & 16 Bumpdate

Long time no see! The past few weeks have been basically the same, and were fairly uneventful (until week 16). Plus, we've been crazy busy now that the holiday season is upon us. So, I decided to do another combined post. Enjoy!
