Stitch Fix Post Partum Edition #2

It's Stitch Fix time! It's warmed up a TON since my last box, and I had some credit waiting for me so I figured I'd give it a try and hopefully find a cute dress to wear to Mass. However, it ended up being CRAZY hot the week that the box came, the air conditioning is (still) broken, the baby is sleep regressing, and I've basically been a frazzled mess. SO I took pictures, but I didn't like, center the camera, crop anything, edit, straighten, or heck, even fix my hair or put on makeup. But you get the idea!

You Have a Beautiful Family

Tuesday, May 28, 2019


This might be weird, but I feel awkward saying it in person since we don't really know each other. Here goes, though:

You have a beautiful family.

Is that strange to say? I'm just really, really happy that you exist.

Happy Friday! Somehow it's already May, which means we're winding down our school year! As usual, we're ahead of the game in most of our books *except* one religion book that we have more chapters than weeks left to read... This happens every year!! I think it's because I try to match the readings up with the liturgical year so we aren't reading about Easter during Lent, but then when we end up with a late Easter that really throws things off. So we'll be doubling up in order to get through, and the rest of our books are getting continued next year (we're on year 1 of Mater Amabilis Level 2), so we don't need to rush to finish them up.

Stitch Fix: Post Partum Edition

Friday, March 29, 2019

Oh you guys. On Monday my Stitch Fix box arrived, on Tuesday I actually had the chance to open it, and every single night I tried to get pictures of the items but this baby is NOT one to cooperate. There were a couple days this week when she nursed, I kid you not, for 16 out of 24 hours.

But then Friday came along and, exhausted and about ready to snap, I swaddled her and she took such an epic nap that I got dishes done, dinner prepped, swept the kitchen, and folded and put away three loads of laundry!!! And I figured I'd press my luck and get one of the kids to take some quick pictures of me with the clothes thrown on... It worked! Miracle of miracles!

But enough about my crazy life. Here's what my stylist sent:

Lucy's Birth Story

Saturday, February 23, 2019

It all started strikingly similar to Edith's birth—I woke up after midnight to go to the bathroom, kept an eye on the clock when I had more contractions than usual, and downloaded a contraction timer app when I realized the contractions weren't going away. I figured either things would stop within an hour or two, or else we'd have a baby by morning.

Well. Wrong.

Welcome, Lucy!

7 Steps to Post Partum Prep {7qt}

Friday, February 8, 2019

Okay folks, we're at 38 weeks 4 days, which means this baby's coming SOON! I've started prepping for the lovely post partum period and figured I might as well share what I'm doing this time around to try to make things a little easier.

What to wear??

Outfit from a couple babies ago!
  My post partum uniform is pretty formulaic—leggings/yoga pants, nursing tank (these are my all-time favorites), long cardigan, scarf. Once I'm ready to be seen, I'll throw on a nursing-friendly shift dress, too (thredup is really handy for finding these, just filter to select for shirt dresses - get $10 credit here!). This post has more ideas if you're looking for some!

Stitch Fix Kids Review: Cecilia's Birthday Fix {7QT}

Friday, February 1, 2019

Cecilia just turned 8 and didn't ask for a ton for her birthday, since Christmas just passed and she mostly just wanted art supplies. So I thought it would be a fun surprise to order a Stitch Fix Kids box and let her give that a spin. She was SO excited to try on all the items from her fix! Here's a full reveal, if you're curious. And if you'd like to try it for one of your kids (or for you, or for your husband...), you can use my referral link and get $25 credit, which more than covers the styling fee!

A kids' fix will generally have 8-12 items, and the price point is lower than adult fixes, starting at $10. I selected the lowest price range for all the categories I requested for Cecilia, and I generally thought that the items were priced fairly for the quality.
