I hope you all had a great week! Over here in the McColgan home, we are patiently awaiting the arrival of our second baby! Woohoo! Definitely having lots of emotions. I’m so excited and at the same time a little intimidated! But I’m pretty sure those are normal feelings when you’re about to give birth and bring home a new baby! So I thought it would be fitting to share with you guys what’s in my hospital bag…the second time around. I‘ll try to link all the items for you guys and I’ve also attached a printable “Hospital Bag Checklist” that you can use as well!

Outfit of the Day

Happy bump day 🐪😆 I don’t normally post my OOTD on the blog, but since Instagram is down (and who knows when it’ll be back up), I thought to myself, this is a good reminder to continuously post on the blog and not rely on a platform that I don’t own. So instead of ranting that Instagram is down and how I can’t access it right now, I’ll take advantage of having my own website and utilize it the best I can!

So this was actually Monday’s OOTD (because we can’t be glamorous everyday 😆)


I am loving the simplicity yet put together look of this outfit 💗 It’s quick, easy and cute! What more could you ask for? Oh wait, comfortable too! There we go! 😉 This outfit is also super versatile. Swap in some sneakers and a baseball cap, tie the jacket around your waist (or wear it) and you’ve got a whole ‘nother outfit! Let me know in the comments how you would mix it up!

Outfit Details:

Hat and Jacket: Forever 21

Dress: H&M

Shoes: Blush Lane

10 Spring Shoes under $25

Happy Friday ladies! I’ve been on a shoe kick lately, so I thought I’d share a few styles that are not only perfect for spring, but they’re perfect for that budget life! You can find all these shoes online at norstromrack.com or just head to one near you and find some great deals that aren’t found online!

Let me start off by letting you know that this is not a sponsored post, nor was I compensated in anyway for writing this. As much as I’d love to be sponsored (especially by Nordstrom Rack) I just love a good deal and sharing it with others! So here are 10 shoes perfect for spring all under $25. Can I get a “woot woot!”

Maternity Must-Haves

Happy  Friday mamas! Today on the blog I’m rounding up some of my favorite maternity items and I’ll also be sharing some that I don’t think are that necessary. For the record, so far I’ve had relatively “easy pregnancies” so maybe think of this as a “maternity starter pack.”

Growing up Together


Parenting is such a rewarding experience, but at the same time (and most of the time) it can be very testing and full of emotions. Raising littles is no easy feat and I only have one! But the memories made along the way and the lessons learned are unforgettable! I love this new role as a mom. When most people think of having kids, or at least what I mainly thought about was starting my own family, how wonderful it would be to raise the next generation, teaching them life values, and teaching them about the Lord. I knew there would be the little battles, but you don’t really know what it’ll be like until you’re in the “battlefield.” What I’ve come to learn is that as I’m raising my child, I am also learning things about myself and how I as a person can and need to grow as well.

Life Update



Hey guys! I’ve been wanting to do a life update for a while. We have a few big changes coming up this year. I know everyone is saying “I’m so excited for 2019!” But seriously, I am super excited to see what this year has to offer, especially looking forward to all the changes that are going to be happening. Some people may not be so excited to welcome change, but I love changing things up, even with things as small as rearranging the furniture in the house. It just feels so refreshing and motivating (at least to me!).

I’ll be singing “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…” for the next couple weeks.
