Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was pretty nice here Saturday so we got out and about with Leyton. We had plans to go to the Children’s Museum but apparently Saturday’s are a popular day to take your kids there (haha, shocker), so since it was so crowed and their server was down, meaning it was taking forever to get tickets, we decided to save the Museum for another weekend. We were going to head home, when I got word that Rachel Hollis’s new book Girl Stop Apologizing, was on sale at Barnes & Noble! This book wasn’t scheduled to be released until March 12th so I had pre-ordered it, but being the ever so impatient person I am, I said “OMG we HAVE to get to a Barnes & Noble right now!!” I called the closest one and sure enough, they had it!!

Hi friends, happy Friday! Today I’m teaming up with my friend Megan over on Instagram, (@_jillkoch_) and she and I are talking our “5 mom must haves,” and I figured I would carry it over to here, add some additional items, and make it blog post!
This topic excites me because as a newer mom, I’m always learning what products I can’t live without and what products are overrated and not necessary. For the sake of time though, I will just be
covering make that, coming clean, about the products that I deem – “must haves.” So let’s hop to it! Continue reading “MY MOM MUST HAVES”

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I got my nails done, had some alone mom time on Saturday and then Eric and I snuck out for a quick date night while his parents watched Leyton for a little. We went to Cooper’s Hawk, which is one of our favorite places to go. We love their wine flights!
This week for Monday Must Haves I’m bringing you several clothing items I have found recently and am totally loving! I have had some requests for more clothing options so I shopped around and found some good finds, at affordable prices. Many are currently on sale! So let’s get to it!

Happy Friday friends! Today’s post is a short and sweet one to send you into the weekend, but it’s one I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. You may know how much I adore Rachel Hollis and several times on her morning live show on Instagram, or her podcasts she has talked about how she has a playlist of songs that are her go-to songs to pump her up when she’s needing a confidence boost, motivation, energy, etc. I loved the idea and decided to create a playlist of my own for this same purpose. We all have those days….days where you don’t want to workout, where you feel less than, where your confidence is lacking, where you feel like you’ll never achieve your goals, you feel like a failure, you’re moody, you’re tired, you feel like everything is going wrong, and the list goes on. Days like those are when we all could benefit from some good ole encouragement. The kind that tells us to buck up, get out of our head, get motivated, get energized, and move on. Continue reading “MUSIC THAT MOTIVATES ME”
Happy Wednesday friends! I’ve noticed some new followers around here recently so I decided to make today’s post a little “about me” so that anyone that is new can get to know me better. I always love learning new facts about people and seeing what, if anything, we have in common. Once you’re done reading I’d love for you to share a fun fact or two about you so I can get to know you better too! Then head over to my Instagram for 5 bonus facts about me (@ _jillkoch_ ).

Happy Monday friends! Who watched the Super Bowl last night? I never get to invested in either team but I do enjoy watching and of course hoping for funny commercials and an entertaining half-time show. I’m going to come clean with you, I thought the half time show fell short. I like Maroon 5 but it was just okay for me. Although, Adam with no shirt and tattoos helped make up for it. But the Super Bowl event was pretty underwhelming for me. But anyways, let’s get to today’s main event…. Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Friday friends! I think we are officially exiting the Polar Vortex and I am pretty pumped about it. I knew it was cold when I took Sebastian out the other morning and my eyelids instantly froze. I have truly never had that happen before. Nose hairs, yes. Eye lids, no. So, needless to say we are all ready for warmth! The good news is that it’s supposed to be back up in the 60’s on Sunday, just in time for the Super Bowl! I never get too into which team wins because I prefer college football over professional, but I like the fun surrounding the Super Bowl and of course the commercials and half time show. So with that in mind I thought I would share a clean dish you could make this Sunday, whether just for you and your family, or to take to a Super Bowl party. With all the unhealthy (but probably delicious) food likely to be making the rounds, I think people would like this healthy, but tasty treat, to help them feel less guilty. I’m partnering up with my friend Megan over on Instagram to share our healthy recipes on our stories. Follow us there for more and you can check out her blog here.

Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was busy but good. We attended a remodeling expo on Saturday to get some ideas and meet contractors for our kitchen reno down the road. We spoke with two that had great ideas and made it less scary than we originally envisioned. So, our next step will be to get them out to the house to really help us design the space. I cant wait! I have been wanting my dream, white kitchen forever now and we are slowly inching toward it happening! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
