Staycation at The Hilton Baltimore



We had the pleasure of staying at The Hilton Baltimore a few weekends ago, and we had THE best time! Sansa has talked about the stay non-stop and keeps asking to go back to "the Hilton hotel with the Orioles." It's sooooo cute. One of my favorite things about the room besides all the cute decor was the view! We had a balcony overlooking Campden Yards and could watch the Orioles games from the outside our suite.

Favorite Sweaters for Fall



I have been all about fall lately, so I wanted to share this super cozy sweater that I love and few other awesome fall sweaters that look so so cozy and cute because y'all asked for it! When I wear this one from Brightside Boutique (you can get it online here) Sansa always says "I love your sweater momma." and then she pets it because its sooo soft and she rubs her face on it too. haha. She melts my heart!

How I Met the Love of My Life




 Hi everyone!! It has been fooooorever since I have posted on here, and since today is our wedding anniversary, I figured this would be the perfect time to share these AMAZING pictures from Brooke Michelle Photography we took quite a few months ago (as you can tell by our coats. hehe). She is so talented that it was very hard to just pick a few because all of them were sooo good! Nikki and I have been married 9 YEARS as of today (eeeeek! we are getting old!). It is crazy to think that I met the love of my life when I was 13. We did not start dating until I was 16, but the story is too good not to share. :)

Bye 2017!




I wanted to shared some of my favorite photos from my phone that were taken last year that I haven't shared at all yet. It was so hard to just pick a select few, so I might be oversharing but oh weelll. I did my best to put these in chronological order, so I hope you enjoy!

Adoption Q&A



Today is Sansa's gotcha day!! She officially became our daughter three years ago! Three years ago we flew to Hungary and met this beauty and our lives changed forever. I will never forget when we first met her. She even let me hold her and we walked hand in hand too. This girl had our hearts from day one. I am so thankful for the joy that she brings to our lives. No matter what she does or how crappy the circumstances are, she is constantly laughing and smiling. Sansa is having to spend her gotcha day in the hospital, but we still got her a cake and Chipotle. :) She is here to get her T-cells harvested so they can go to a fancy lab and become CAR T-cells and then they will go right back in her to fight the leukemia. Spending the day in the PICU is not optimal, but she makes the best of it. She is our fighter and amazes us everyday.

Gingham + A Capsule Wardrobe Update





This is probably one of the most bloggeriest (can I make that a word?) outfits I have ever worn and I reallyyyyy like it. Gingham is super trendy at the moment and I am a fan. Pants, skirts, shirts, dresses. I love that gingham comes in almost any form. This top is from StyleWe and I fell in love when I saw it. You all know I am a sucker for some cute dramatic sleeves. This may not be the first time you have seen this top, as it is super popular in the bloggersphere (yep, just making up words here), and I love it nonetheless. I have been trying to stay away from the super trendy items that will probably fade in the next year or two, gingham being a rare exception of course. ;) Hence why I started a capsule wardrobe (if you do not know what a capsule wardrobe is go back to this blog post) at the beginning of the year. I was tired of clutter and not being intentional with my wardrobe choices, so I tried out a capsule wardrobe for a couple of months and am finally doing a recap of the process.

Cancer Sucks



Last week Sansa had a bone marrow sample taken from her spine because it had been 6 months since her bone marrow transplant in January. It was a routine test to check and make sure everything was still looking good. Last Friday Sansa's doctor called me to let us know that there was leukemia present in her bone marrow. 7% to be exact. All I could think was "f*ck." I didn't say much or ask many questions on the phone because I was trying not to cry. As soon as I got off the phone the flood of tears came. Fear, frustration, anger, and sadness came rushing to the surface. We are beyond devastated because we did not expect anything like this to happen. Sansa has been her crazy happy normal self (just like you see in these photos), so we were very unprepared for this news. I mean, you can never really be prepared for things like this, but we just felt completely blindsided since everything with Sansa has been super great after her bone marrow transplant.
