Favorite mommy/maternity product:
Above all, I just want to be comfortable, always. Comfy leggings, a simple t-shirt dress, a thin robe… those are three things that are necessary for me each pregnancy + postpartum + just in everyday life now.
Favorite baby product:
I’ve got to go with blankets for this one. I love allll the different blankets: muslin blankets, stroller blankets, quilts… I’m into them all. I love making personalized baby shower gift baskets for friends, and you’ll always find some type of blanket in them.
Favorite way to have a little “me-time”:
If you would have asked me this question a few months ago, I honestly wouldn’t have even known how to answer. At the beginning of this year, I started doing pilates at home and I LOVE IT! I am not a worker-outer, I just never have been… but I love the way pilates makes me feel, mentally and physically. I even started waking up before my boys so I could have my own time to do it without taking away from my time with them. I don’t even know who I am anymore ~ waking up earlier than necessary + doing a workout? That’s how you know it’s good, haha.
A couple more questions...
What activities are you most excited to do with your sweet little ones this Summer?
Honestly, I just love doing anything at all with my boys. We live in Florida, so we are outside a lot. We just got a golf cart so we’ve all really been enjoying taking golf cart rides around sunset time and exploring the neighborhoods near us and obsessing over the beautiful skies. It’s really been so special, for sure those are some of my favorite moments this summer.
What is the first thing you do when you put your boys down for bed?
LAY DOWN! I’m so nonstop all day, so my husband and I start watching something on the TV for about 7 minutes until he passes out (haha) and then I start doing my work for marketing until I pass out. And sometimes I like to squeeze some ice cream time in there somewhere.
Can you tell us a little about balancing life with your three sweet boys at home?
Having some type of routine really helps my life and the boys' lives. We know overall what to expect each day. Over time, I have learned what works best for us each and I kind of stick to that and just adapt in whatever ways when things change. I don’t stress about sticking to a super strict time schedule or if I didn’t finish everything I wanted to. In life, I’ve learned that just letting everything be helps so much, cause things don’t always go as planned and that’s okay.
Please share some words of advice for all the mamas out there!
I just want to start this off by saying that no one knows what we’re doing... our babies teach us to be the moms we need to be for them. And you are THE most perfect mama for your baby (even when you doubt yourself), you were truly made for each other. And aside from that, I think my most important advice would be to just always be intentional and always be present. These years and this time are the most beautiful, most important part of our lives. In my eyes, love and happiness are all that matters. If you give your children that, they’ll have the best life ever. And it will be so so beautiful to see.
