    My Week on Instagram

    I upload so many pictures and videos of Asa to Instagram, so I think it’s about time I start doing these posts regularly! It’s fun to recap his weekly progress; he gets so much more responsive each week, and I love it! I’ve decided to upload my Insta-videos to an unlisted Youtube playlist for those of you that don’t have Instagram, so that I can share them here as well (it’s the only way I could figure out how to share the instavideos on my blog), so if you’re interested in seeing more of Asa, click here to get to the playlist! Asa loves baths. Happy bathed baby | My…

    A month of Asa, according to Instagram

    First moments as a mama | Snuggling with his polar bear blanket at a few days old | Showing the world the meaning of “milk drunk | Displaying his usual face of skepticism | Being cute and sleepy | Cuddles | Squishy cheeks! (Could you resist? I think no.) | His reaction when I asked “should we get up now?” | Baby creases! The first smile I caught on camera. It melts me. Seriously. Itty bitty perfect fingers. Snug and swaddled! | Asleep in my favorite footie pajamas. I’m sad he doesn’t fit those any more! | Being generally perfect and asleep. | Going crosseyed. | First mama-baby outfit selfie!…

    My Week on Instagram

    The two biggest things of the week, obviously: I started writing again (and subsequently kept forgetting descriptive words and just marking my place with “WORD” so that I could go back and replace it. Hopefully I remember to actually do that…) and I went blonde. I am shocked by how big of a difference it made to go blonde! So many people didn’t recognize me. Because of the blonde-ness, I also updated my makeup routine. Which you can see in full here. I’m loving the new colors I can get away with now having blonde hair. It’s amazing how changing your hair color can open up  new possibilities that you wouldn’t have…

    Life lately, according to Instagram

    1. The sky this morning was AMAZING. And you can’t tell in the picture, but in the distance there were gorgeous hazy  mountains, and the water was all pink and the skyline was rosy… so pretty. 2. My outfit today. I love it. I’m wearing a scarf as a belt, and I think coral and blue is my favorite combo EVER. I need more coral! 3. Lunch! Minus the homemade Whole30 approved devilled eggs which are fantastic, if I do say so myself… 4. the most amazingest carrots I have EVER had, thanks to this recipe. I have now purchased her cookbook. I don’t like carrots. These were THAT GOOD.…

    Resolution #5

    I’m trying to keep up with the blog even though I have no computer except the work computer, so while I’m waiting for the money to buy a new laptop, I thought I’d take care of other things: specifically, one of my new year’s resolutions. In my new year post, I mentioned cultivating my blog shop, which I’ve had around for a little while now. I started it up just to get rid of some of my clothes that I think are too pretty to give to Goodwill just yet, but the more I put up, the more I realized how much I love styling and posting garments for other…
