Reminiscing on 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!  This past year was amazing and it’s crazy to think 2017 has the potential to be even better.  We get to meet our second sweet baby boy this spring and I cannot wait!

As the crazy human/dog mom that I am I was just recently going through my phone pictures and you guys…I have over 8000 photos ON MY PHONE ALONE!  What is wrong with me?!  Reid always makes fun of me because any time the puppies are sleeping in a cute position or Auggie does something adorable (which is every 5 minutes in my opinion) I have to capture it!  I definitely need to be better about living in the moment, but it’s so fun to share our little ones with family & friends.  Plus I have to stock up so I can embarrass Auggie in front of his future girlfriends 🙂

Some of my favorite big time bloggers who I adore did similar posts and I thought what a cute idea!  I just wanted to take a trip down memory lane from 2016 and share some of my favorite moments with you all!

Favorite memories:

Taking Auggie to the tulip fields in La Conner, he was so amazed by the vibrant flowers, it’s so fun to watch your child explore the world

My first time leaving Auggie to visit Reid in Key West for the weekend, I was terrified to leave him so young but I did not regret the time I got to spend one on one with my husband!

Celebrating the marriage of my brother & sister-in-law, it was such a beautiful event, and great to see friends & family from across the states

Summer time backyard hangouts with Auggie and our pups, he loved getting in our party bucket to cool off, and the dogs love lounging on the grass, could they all be any cuter? (Bias mom comment)

Auggie turned ONE!  We had a super special day at the zoo and celebrated with pizza & delicious cupcakes after, it’s definitely a day to be remembered, especially the bird aviary..Auggie kept trying to reach out and grab the birds!

Our first family trip to California to visit friends, Auggie LOVED the beach!  (Except for when he tried to eat the sand)

Christmas tree farm, this is an event I look forward to every single year, and this year was my favorite yet because we got to enjoy it with our little dude, even though it was pouring and freeeeezing.

The first SNOW of the year, Auggie loved it, for 5 minutes, then we were done

Finding out we are having another BOY!  I cannot wait to have these two grow up together and be best friends.  Plus that means I get to be the princess of the house right?

Our holiday family photo, it’s always such a disaster trying to get everyone to cooperate, including Reid!  I always love how they turn out because it captures our family perfectly, aka perfect photos DON’T exist!

 

 



New Years Resolutions:

Savor every moment with my family, life is too short!  

Put more time & effort into my blog

Live a healthier lifestyle, nothing feels better than eating natural food & having a consistent workout routine

Have more date nights, it’s hard to leave your babies but they were built on the relationship with your spouse and it’s easy to forget that 

What are some of your resolutions this year?  I would love to hear!

Thanks for readings guys!  I am currently working on the farmhouse dining table plans with Reid and we will get that posted ASAP!  I can’t wait to share with you all.

Xoxo,

Kristin

Motivational Monday

You guys!!!  I have been so MIA and I sincerely apologize for my lack of blogging.  Slacker status…but as our house projects have come to a dead-end I have been wanting to start writing about other passions of mine; fashion, music and family!  Here are some of my ideas…Reid and I both have both always had a serious love for music.  I grew up playing the piano and he playing the guitar.  The past few years I have dabbled in and out of learning songs on the guitar but it wasn’t until recently that I really felt the need to commit and see where it can take me.  I don’t know if it’s just me but I have a serious fear of performing in front of other people so for my entire life I kept my love for singing strictly business in the shower 😉  I have the most amazing husband who has always believed in me and pushed me out of my comfort zone so I am finally going to do it.  We’re talking about recording some songs we sing together and posting some video blogs for you all!  Music is such a beautiful thing and it should be shared with the world.

My next love FASHION!  Who doesn’t love online shopping (more so stalking for me) and frolicking around town feeling cute as sh**?! I was inspired to start my blog because of all the fashion blogs I have read and admired for several years now.  Once again, this is a huge leap out of my comfort zone, I have been nervous people will think I’m full of myself which is not the case…I just love fashion and think it’s such a fun thing to share with readers!  And more than that, I need to not care what people think because as Dr. Seuss said, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”  (On a side note, I freaking love Dr. Seuss!!!  He nailed it on that one!)  With all the terrible events that have been happening in the world recently I keep reminding myself that life is too short.

Last but definitely not least…my family!!!  I don’t know how I got so lucky to have the family I do.  Auggie is an absolute dream come true, I swear he gets cuter every morning I get him out of his crib.  I have 100% accepted the fact that I am totally that crazy human & dog mom.  😛

If you guys have any comments or feedback on my “fresh” blog ideas I would love to hear them!  But if not, you can expect some fun new things coming your way soon!

You know I can’t let you get away without showing you some stinkin’ precious baby photos!  Auggie is 7 months old now, I seriously don’t know where the time has gone.  He’s sitting up, trying to crawl and super into food & trying to feed himself!  Make it stop!  Here’s some of my favorite photos from the past few months.  Thanks for reading guys, looking forward to what’s to come in the future, and thanks or being patient with me!

(If you follow my Instagram there will not be any shortage of baby & dog photos, link is on the right hand side under the follow me tab!)

A Weekend Retreat to Key West

IMG_0033

DSC01621

DSC01634

Well, this past weekend I decided to finally do it.  I left Auggie with grandparents for the first time and I flew all the way to Key West to spend a weekend with my hubs (and all of his friends)!  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  Immediately upon landing, there is a bar in baggage claim where you can get an ice cold beer.. and the best part?  You can walk around town with it!  This was the first time I have ever made an impulse decision to travel and I am pretty stoked about it.  I think I will be doing more of this in the future 😉

We stayed about a mile outside of town and rented beach cruisers to get around everywhere.  There’s something super exhilarating about cruising around on bikes!  But I think my absolute favorite thing about Key West is all of the live music.  Almost every bar or restaurant you go to has someone playing catchy music whether it be acoustic covers or originals.

On this blog post, besides sharing some pictures, I thought I would do a little breakdown of some of my favorite places to see & eat.

Here’s a little list of places that are worth checking out if you venture to Key West 🙂

Bike Rental: Eaton Bikes

Best Evening Attraction: Fury– Commotion on the Ocean.  This was a sunset booze cruise from 630-830 with unlimited drinks and apps and we had an absolute blast.  I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.  How could you not want to cruise off into the sunset with a beer in hand and a live band playing your favorite old timey covers?

Best Fancy Dinner: Blue Heaven, I had the yellowtail snapper which was insanely tasty.  I was creeping on the table next to me that ordered Key Lime pie and if I wasn’t so full I would have been all aboard the dessert train!

Best Happy Hour: The Commodore, located right on the marina with a beautiful view of boats and even better people watching along the boardwalk.  All small plates and drinks are 50% from 430-630…can’t beat that!

Best Coffee: Cuban Coffee Queen, order the iced cafe con leche..do it!

Best Cuban Food: El Siboney…it’s a little cruise to get there but oh so worth it!  Let me tell you, this sh** is authentic! We even got to witness a live rooster fight right outside.

Best Fish Tacos: Hogfish Bar & Grill.  It’s a trek depending on where you’re staying, it was about a 10 minute drive for us, but a great change of pace.  I ordered the blackened hogfish tacos which were loaded with homemade salsa and jalapeños with a side of cuban rice and beans. If you’re looking for something with a little extra flare, this is your spot!

Best Beach: Higgs Beach.  It’s a few minutes cruise in the opposite direction of town but there’s a lot less people than the main beaches and you can rent a couple chairs and an umbrella for $20.  This is a great spot if you’re looking to lay out for the day.

Best Spot to Dance: Sloppy Joes…need I say more?

Below are some pictures from my trip.  I guess it’s time for me to get back to “adulting.”  Key West, here’s to hoping we meet again.

Cheers all & enjoy the rest of your week!

Xoxo,

Kristin

Tiptoe Through the Tulips

DSC01558

DSC01563

 

Happy weekend all!  I am sitting here going over all the stinkin’ precious pictures from our adventure to Tulip Town yesterday!  My friend Jackie and I took Auggie on a day date to frolic in the flowers, and he LOVED it!  He even tried eating them…I was pretty sure the security guards were going to kick us out for disturbing the beautiful fields, but when you see a face like Auggie’s, who would ever dare?!  😉

I don’t have too much to say today (I know I normally don’t ever shut up!), but I just fell in love with all the photos Jackie took of my mini man and I and figured instead of blowing up Instagram, I would share them all with you here.

If you haven’t been to the Tulip Festival, I recommend going, even just for a photo shoot.  Kiddies love it!  We continued on to one of my favorite restaurants in La Conner, Seeds, for  some coffee and snacks (and milk for Auggie).  Springtime in the northwest is amazing and I am so excited to be able to share it with the little dude this year.  Here’s some pictures for you to enjoy, and yes, the red tulips were actually that bright!!!

Coming soon– a post on Reid refinishing our buffet.  It looks awesome!

I am off to have a little girls day brunch…#sundayfunday (I’m pretty sure that’s what the cool kids do these days).

Lots of love,

Kristin

Augustus Graham Smith

“No one will ever know the strength of my love for you, after all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.”

UNTH1473

Hello friends & family!

I have been MIA for quite some time now but I have decided to make a comeback!  As many of you know…being a new mom is very time-consuming but worth every second.  I thought today I would share the birth story of our son, Augustus Graham.

Auggie was born at 6:45 PM after 18 long hours of labor!  He had an amazing team of nurses and a fabulous doctor.  This is how it started…

12:30 Am – My water broke!!! And let me tell you I felt like it was straight out of a movie scene!  I woke up my lovely husband (who HATES being woken up during his slumber) and we cruised down to the Island Hospital.  From there, we were admitted and spent all the early morning hours wondering the hospital trying to get everything kick started for the labor.  For the record, “exercising” pre-labor is the opposite of fun.  I was then put on pitosin mid-morning which helped speed up the delivery process.   Around noon I was on the verge of breaking all the bones in Reid’s hand and made the decision to get an epidural.  Best decision I ever made!  After I was drugged up I was just living the dream waiting for our son to make his appearance.  We spent the rest of the afternoon watching Animal Planet, I learned far too much about elephants 😛  Around 4 pm I was fully dilated and ready to start pushing…it was a surreal experience.  My nurse and Reid were amazing labor coaches!  I didn’t take any birthing classes and they made it seem like a piece of cake.  I couldn’t be more thankful to have them both there with me!  My doctor was called in at the very end of the labor process and made the decision to use forceps to get him out.  Let’s just say he’s got a big head like his mom and dad (yowza!)  Auggie was out within minutes of the forceps being used.  I can remember the exact second I got to see him and hold him and I will forever cherish that memory.  It’s unlike anything you could ever expect.  But what I loved the most was seeing Reid meet him for the first time.  You could tell that the second he saw him he had never loved anything more in his life.

We spent the next two days in the hospital making sure everything was running smoothly.  Our team of nurses were incredible!  They really made me feel at ease when I didn’t have the slightest clue what I was doing.  By the third morning we were discharged and so excited to just get home and start our life with this sweet boy.  No one can possibly warn you how hard the first few weeks are with a newborn…it’s an entirely new experience. A baby is born with the need to be loved and that is what keeps you going!

Would I do the process all over again? You betcha!!!  Even though it felt like I was pregnant for an eternity, getting to meet that sweet baby that you and your husband created is more than worth it.  It truly is the miracle of life!!!

Auggie is now 11 weeks old!!! Where did the time go?  I understand why people always said they’re off to college in the blink of an eye.  My goal is to love and adore every second I get to spend with him, although that’s not very hard to do 🙂

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the delivery and shortly after.  Thanks for reading all, I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Confessions of a Sassy Pregosorous

Happy Monday all!!!  I find it odd that the days I am most inspired to do blog posts are on Mondays… aren’t Mondays supposed to be the most dreaded day of the week?  As Reid and I were sitting and eating our usual breakfast together (fried eggs, avocado, Aidell’s sausages, and toast) we were talking about how at any point now this is all going to become REAL.  I am now a week and a half from my due date and this little man could make his appearance to the world at any moment.  I truly could not be more excited!  I started looking back through pictures from the past 10 months and thinking about what an incredible journey it has been.  Of course there’s been rough days, (if you don’t have rough days, you’re not human) but for the most part I have really had a kick-ass pregnancy.

I was thinking it would be fun to hit the rewind button and take you back on my pregnancy journey from Day 1!  This could be the last blog post you get for a little while if he chooses to arrive soon (HE BETTER!) so deal with it 😉

Where it all started…     

Reid and I were at our friend’s wedding in Annapolis getting “hyphee” (I’m too old now to know the slang the young kids use) on the dance floor the weekend we found out I was expecting! And yes, if you know me you know I was 100% sober here, I just love myself some gangsta rap!  

IMG_6425

Reid snapped this photo of me at about 8 weeks pregnant because he wanted to capture my “glow” although I’m pretty sure it was just sweat 😉 

DSC00146

Easter weekend when we got to tell our families they were going to be GRANDPARENTS!  This was such a cool moment that I will remember forever.  Who doesn’t love tiny  baby shoes?  Especially Chuck T’s!   


IMG_3689

IMG_3701

This photo was taken about 16 weeks pregnant when we announced to the world, and by world I mean 200 Instagram followers, that the Smith clan was growing by one!!!  

DSC00401

Oh yeah, here’s a fun story about being pregnant.  I had to start making myself enjoy DECAF COFFEE!!!  I was convinced the world was ending, but it turns out I survived just fine.  #pregoproblems

IMG_4201

“The force is strong with this one.”  I think Reid has made me watch too much Star Wars lately because that was the only caption I could come up with for this lovely photo…

IMG_3881

 The best day ever…GENDER REVEAL!!!  Reid thought I was a total cheese ball for wanting to get either blue or pink ice cream to celebrate after but he was probably just jealous how awesome blue bubblegum ice cream was (that’s a lie, I ended up throwing it away immediately after the picture!)  Could they not have made blue raspberry or blueberry?  Okay, I need to stop talking about ice cream now before I start eating it at 9 am.  #pregoproblems  

IMG_4600

Okay so are you ready for the best part… HONEY/BABY MOON!  Reid and I never got to take a proper honeymoon after our wedding (although he tries to tell me our trip to stay with his brother for 2 weeks in Jacksonville was our honeymoon…men, am I right?) We decided to take a spontaneous trip to Maui, and it really was the best thing ever.  Warm sandy beaches, pools, authentic Hawaiian food, watching my super studly husband surf, mountains of shaved ice & BIRDS …ahhhh take me back right now! 

IMG_5182

I don’t know what I did from weeks 20-30…clearly nothing!!!  The only picture I have is one my best friend forced me to take in her work parking lot, although I am digging the “impromptu-ness” in this photo!  #denimbabybump (PS- this was my favorite maternity dress!) 

IMG_5469

The end of the white pants era… There hits a certain point where white pants just don’t work anymore (Know what I’m sayin’?)  I had to capture the end of this era for me at about 36 weeks!!!  Although, they were a hell of a maternity pant!  I think I may actually miss elastic waistbands.  Is it weird that I have a fear I’m just totally going to forget to zip and button my regular jeans again post-pregnancy? #pregoproblems

IMG_6674

Week 37: This was my “I need one more outfit to get me through the last few weeks so I don’t entirely feel like a beached whale” shopping moment.  As you can see I was beyond ecstatic that I got this shirt to button!!!  #pregoproblems 

IMG_6714

Drumroll please… Our final date night!!!  I have to admit I have never felt more pregnant than when I saw fried Cornish game hen and maple bourbon waffles on the menu at our favorite restaurant, I just about peed my pants with excitement (and because I have zero bladder control these days).  The waitress literally gave me a high 5 when she saw that Reid was the one who ordered the salad and I got the juicy fat packed meal…or maybe it was because I basically licked the plate dry.  Hey, I was just saving them some dishwashing time! 😉  Once again… #pregoproblems 

IMG_6831

If you can’t tell from my writing, I am feeling quite SASSY today!!!  I hope this made your monday a little bit more cheerful, and if it doesn’t, look down at your feet and feel lucky they aren’t the size/shape of elephant feet.  And if that doesn’t help then here are my favorite puppy pictures of the week!

IMG_6573 IMG_6812 IMG_6836IMG_6833

Oh yeah, and here’s a little quote to live your week by.  Wait no, live your LIFE by!  I am pretty sure they made this for me.  YOLO! (Is that still the cool thing to say these days?)

handle it quote

Have a fabulous day!!! If you don’t hear from me for a while, our lil’ man made his big debut and I promise to do a blog post on his birth ASAP!

Nursery Reveal

Let me start this post off with saying that I am SO in love with this nursery!!!  I find myself opening the door all the time just to peak in and smile!  I cannot wait to raise our little boy in here…I’m actually a little bit jealous this gets to be his room 😉  As you can tell from our recent home renovations I am a little bit obsessed with the white and grey shabby chic look.  My overall goal was for this to be a calming and happy space, very important for mama and baby!

I found a lot of joy in getting to do some of the nursery decor ourselves.  As shown in some of my previous posts, Reid built and stained the bookshelves as well as the open shelves over the changing table.  I got to paint the giraffes over his sweet crib along with the black and white animals on the canvas’ above the changing table.  A lot of thought and love went into creating my dream nursery and I am so excited to share it with all of you.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Adventures of Doodle & Wilbo

IMG_2946
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

It’s about time I introduced you to the furry members of our family.  Meet Daisy Duke (Nickname: Doodle) and Wilson (Nickname: Willie or Wilbo Waggins…yes this is after Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit, don’t judge us).  We rescued Daisy from an online lab rescue site, found here, when she was 2 1/2 years old.  We were told she was no longer a good addition to their family of 4 kids and caused many issues.  We took Daisy in when Reid and I were engaged and found her to be the sweetest most loyal lab we had ever met.  It didn’t take long for us to become inseparable.  We got Daisy in the spring time right before Reid deployed for 10 months and she was an absolute blessing in disguise for me.  I can’t imagine life without her now!  Her hobbies include snuggling, eating snacks with you on the couch, snuggling, going for long walks or runs, laying in the corner of the gym and watching you work out, snuggling, car rides, napping in any of her 3 beds all around the house, snuggling, barking at her pesky little brother Wilson, spooning with you in bed and sitting in your lap (even though she’s far too big for that) and did I mention snuggling? If you’re looking for a good 80 pound lap dog, this is your girl!

After having Miss Daisy for 2 years, we decided one lab just wasn’t chaotic enough, and Reid and I love a challenge 🙂  We decided last christmas to get an english lab puppy.  We found Wilson through this breeder and have enjoyed every minute of him being apart of our family.  My brother-in-law has an english lab named Rusty with all the attitude and stink in the world and for some reason I have always been drawn to mischievous boys like this.  When finding an available yellow male in this liter, I opened my big mouth and told the breeder I wanted the “stinkiest” one you can find!  Ohhh we got the stinkiest one alright.  I don’t even know how to begin to describe Wilson.  He has more personality than you can believe!  His hobbies include digging up freshly planted flowers from our garden, stealing our socks and running away with them never to be found again, bothering his big sister Daisy, stopping to sniff every 10 seconds on a walk, snacking, digging/rolling in his massive dirt pile in the backyard, hiding sticks and bark in the side flaps of his mouth then chewing them up all over our carpet, being chased, and taking other puppies on walks with his leash.  This little man has a lot of spunky moments but it only makes us love him more.  Am I crazy for saying that?

I know what you guys are thinking, I am a crazy dog lady!!!  I 100% admit to that and am proud of it.  Dogs are amazing animals and spend the entirety of their days trying to please us.  Our family wouldn’t be what it is now without these fur balls and we love them more and more each day.  I cannot wait to see Willie and our little boy (due in 6 weeks!!) run around and cause chaos together…bring it on!  Daisy and I are officially about to be outnumbered 😛

Here’s a little collage of some of my favorite pictures of these knuckle heads!

A Shower Even Pinterest Would Be Jealous Of…

IMG_0019 IMG_5527 IMG_5524 IMG_5523 IMG_5544 IMG_5551 IMG_5568 IMG_5547 IMG_5532 IMG_5549 IMG_5559 IMG_5555IMG_5554IMG_5543IMG_0043_2IMG_0045_2

Let me start this post off by saying I have a slight Pinterest obsession…is anyone else with me on that?  When talk of this beautiful shower arose, I gave my lovely hosts my “Dream Baby Shower” Pinterest page and let them roll with it.  I wasn’t expecting half of it to happen since I am a total diva and pinned things such as Biscuit Bars, vintage milk bottles, and mini pies. Oh my was I wrong!  These girls literally made Pinterest explode all over my house!  It was the sweetest little shower I ever could have hoped for and I loved every second of it.  As you can see photographed above there were mini pies (I think I ate half of them), blue velvet cupcakes, a bubbly bar for the guests, a giraffe diaper cake, mini champagne bottle gift favors, my very own biscuit bar with biscuits from the local farmers market, mustache shaped ice cubes, vintage milk bottles with adorable grey, yellow and mint striped straws and a sparkling soda bar for the oh so sober guest of honor!  The theme was “giraffes” and my color scheme was grey, light yellow and mint.  If you want more stunning baby shower ideas, you can follow my Pinterest page!  There are some crazy creative folks out there and I am so inspired by them.  Thanks for reading friends!

PS – Does anyone else want mini pies and cupcakes after reading this? YUM!

Xoxo 😉

Keeping up with Kristin

Hello world!  I could not be more excited to get back into the blogging world.  When I found out I was pregnant several months ago I decided it would be my last year of teaching at the most wonderful preschool.  I wanted to stay at home and be with my new little peanut and watch him grow because I know it happens FAST.  This was a hard decision for me because I absolutely adored what I got to do and made so many great relationships, but I think it is so special to be apart of the journey of raising your child!  I wanted to find a way to share this special time in our lives with everyone we love!  I think blogging is an amazing way to share this journey.  Being pregnant has done so many wonderful things for our growing family.  It has made me feel beautiful on the inside and out! I have discovered so many things about myself in this adventure thus far which I can’t wait to share.

The news of my pregnancy came in March on our way to Annapolis for a friend’s wedding.  I had a rush of emotions and could not wait to share the news with our family and friends.  Right along the 8 week mark at Easter dinner we surprised our family with the news!  (I know they say wait until 12 weeks but if you know me you would know that I’m not very good at keeping secrets!) What better way to tell your family than with TINY baby converse!  By the way if you’re wondering who Kreid is, it’s Reid and my “combo name.”  I mean it’s no Bragelina, but it’ll do 😉  The cheesy couple name came from our wedding festivities a couple of years back!  Plus if you know Reid, you know he’s all about jamming out to some Creed at karaoke bars (Yes, it happens quite frequently).  So all in all, quite fitting for us!  I am now coming up on 29 weeks this friday and can’t believe how fast the time has flown!  I cannot wait to meet this little guy!  With this pregnancy has come LOTS of nesting.  I mean…lots.  In the past couple months we have remodeled our entire kitchen and main living area, setup a nursery which included lots of fun DIY projects, and are now tackling a laundry room and guest bathroom update.  I also am pretty sure I am getting a minor form of OCD when it comes to cleaning these days!  Please tell me this is all part of nesting?  I will share with you our house updates and do a full nursery tour as soon as possible.  For now, thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy my crazy baby brain ramble 🙂
