Marin // 5-6 months



Time for another quick update on my little Bird! I'm a little late with this one as she turned 6 months old on November 18th...but better late than never, right?

Happiness // No.4


via

I'm not going to lie, this week has been a total doozy. Sometimes blogland and social media can seem so perfect, and portray only the "pretty" moments in people's lives...so I think it is good to keep it real on here from time to time. 

Starting the Saturday after Thanksgiving - Marin has been a total terror at night time. She won't go to bed, and then when she finally does...she never sleeps longer than 1-2 hours. On top of that, when she wakes up, she screams bloody murder and is inconsolable for sometimes upward of half and hour. That lasted for a good 5+ nights in a row. I know she is teething and also had a bit of sickness contributing, but that didn't make it any less difficult. (Don't worry, I've talked to the pediatrician and we've taken some steps to hopefully help her since this is totally not normal for her - it had me worried too!)

I've also been sick most of the week with a terrible sore throat and ear pain - all of which is viral, so in the doctor's words, I just need to "ride it out". Lovely.

Because of all the grumpiness and sleeplessness that has been going on at my house, I really wanted to sit down and do another post on things that have made me happy this week. Reminding myself that even when you are down in the trenches (of illness, parenting, whatever it may be)...there are always little bits of positivity to be thankful for.

Christmas Pictures // Sisters


Sister Christmas Pictures



We just finalized the outfits that the girls will be wearing for Christmas pictures this year, so I thought I would share them with you. They are going to be getting their photos taken together just at a simple studio this year. I wasn't able to organize the whole family for group shots with a photographer this time around...but that will be the goal for next year!

Recent Cruelty Free Empties



Why do the weeks following a long weekend seem to drag on for all eternity? It is only Wednesday, and I feel like I've been at work much longer than just three days already. 

I've used up a bunch of beauty products lately, and have been keeping the empty bottles laying around, so that I could share my thoughts on each of them with you! This post will be about the most recent group...but there are also posts coming soon about a big pile of makeup empties and then a big pile of skin care empties, so brace yourselves.

*All items are from cruelty free companies.
