Mama Style : Pink Edition

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. We spent our's putting together baby P's crib, (by we...I mean Austin) drinking kombucha, thrifting, hiking and cleaning up the house. I even managed to squeeze in an afternoon nap which felt great because I'm somehow 30 weeks pregnant and my body is definitely telling me to slow down.

 Lately, when getting dressed I've been moving towards pinks. Even while shopping I'm looking for Pink. I keep telling myself it must be a subconscious thing since we will soon have two girls and I've always been a fan of pink. Don't tell Austin, but I even have Pink bath towels coming! Poor guy, he's so outnumbered. I've always been a pink fan and when Pepper Place Design came out with a new color in my favorite romper I just had to have it. It was just a coincidence that Olive's little pink romper from Hadley Girl showed up on the same day and we got to match. #twinning and both of our shoes are from Soft Star Shoes and insanely comfortable. If you've been wanting to order from Soft Star I would recommend checking their sizing because it is different than normal and for those wondering, I'm wearing a Medium in the romper and would suggest if you're bigger than a B cup to order larger than a small. 

Olive was being so fun the other day and these photos are unedited but I want to keep them here so I never forget what a great afternoon we had playing in the mirror being "happy and sad".

Present Over Perfect

Happy Tuesday! This post was supposed to go up yesterday but Olive had the most random 104 fever that literally came out of nowhere. We were face-timing with my mom and she was all smiles and then an hour later we were at my midwife appointment and it was almost at 102. Then it just kept rising, but we prayed and declared healing over her body and by 11 pm the fever had broke. Olives never had any Tylenol and I was super close to giving her some yesterday but we let it run its course and she is totally fine today which makes me happy I didn't give her any.

We leave for Chicago tomorrow afternoon and I haven't even brought the suitcases up yet. Life has been busy with trying to get my clothing line started and prepare for baby sister. I also have been trying my best to just slow down and enjoy the moments and not rush to do everything. I'm sure I'll be running around tomorrow morning packing, sooooooo maybe I haven't found the correct amount of balance yet but I'm working on it. I recently put this quote from the book Present Over Perfect on my Instagram but thought I'd share it here too! 

"There are lots of conversations right now about how to do everything better/faster/smarter, how to streamline, multitask, layer, balance, flow, juggle. How to monetize, strategize and on and on. This is good stuff. Necessary stuff. But my jam these days is wasting time, playing, becoming aware of that internal engine that always wants to go faster, faster, faster. That engine is not the best part of me. My HEART is the best part of me. And I'm finding my heart loves to play. My heart loves to color and draw, loves to dance in the kitchen, loves to shoot baskets, loves to do cartwheels with my nieces in the front yard. What would our lives be like if our days were studded by tiny, completely unproductive, silly, nonstrategic, wild and beautiful five minute breaks, reminders that our days are for loving and learning and laughing, not for pushing and planning, reminders that it's all about the heart, not about the hustle? " 

Ah, isn't that little passage just a breath of fresh air? If you haven't picked up a copy of Present over Perfect yet I'd highly recommend it. It's one of those books that woke me up out of my autopilot and challenged me to really live again.
