• Showering New Parents: The Perfect Baby Gift

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GetJohnsonsBaby #ChooseGentle #CollectiveBias #Ad Even though a little fear set in before we arrived on this journey of parenthood, I absolutely love this season of life and I couldn’t be more excited to have so many friends along for the ride. We’re thankfully sandwiched in between some of our closest friends with having a baby, which means we’re able to experience some things after others have lived it and also watch others have their moment after we do. It’s been fairly emotional for me to see our friends become parents now that we…

  • My Favorite Instagram Shops For Baby

    I am on my phone all of the time, especially during middle of the night feedings. There isn’t much more to do when you have one hand, a baby on your lap and no light besides the dim nightlight. So how do I pass the time? SHOPPING (or window shopping at least)! I have found some amazing Instagram shops and I’m really excited to share them all today! There are countless shops out there these days, but these five are by far my favorites. I love the brand behind the photos and products and supporting these families is so much better than a random product from Target (even though we…

  • Newborn Essentials | Must Have Newborn Items

    Creating our baby registry was by far the most overwhelming experience during my pregnancy. How do you know what you will need or what is just a gimmick? What if your baby doesn’t like something and you need to try something else? We wanted to be over-prepared instead of under-prepared because Amazon in 1-hour doesn’t work in our neighborhood quite yet 😉 These items are the can’t-live-withouts, the must have newborn items for our first 6 weeks of Olivia’s life. Some of these things may not work for your baby, but they were all essential to keeping our sanity. Baby Susher– we ended up buying this 2 weeks into newborn living…

    Garden Baby Shower For Olivia

    I’m not even sure how to explain the beautiful day that was our baby shower. I’m so incredibly thankful for all of the contributions, effort, thoughtfulness and love that went into every single detail. My mom and sister planned the perfect day and the weather couldn’t have been better. I constantly think back on some of my favorite memories- my bridal shower, bachelorette party, wedding, etc. and reminisce about being surrounded by so many friends and family and I’m so thankful. This day has absolutely joined those fond memories of our life. We have amazing people in our lives and I know the day we spent celebrating Olivia will always…

    Twinkle Twinkle Gender Reveal Party

    This has nothing to do with a wedding, but it’s a party, and Labor day kicked the work ethic right out of me, so I’m sharing it anyways! To kick off August, I hosted two parties two days in a row. Beer Olympics and then a gender reveal for my cousin and her fiancé to announce the gender of their new little babe that is on HIS way! This was one of the hardest secrets I have ever had to keep. I joined Meghan and Larry on Monday for their sonogram and was the only one to know what they were having for six whole days. Keeping it from the…
