Such a gorgeous day of pumpkin picking for Tenley's class field trip! We love us some pumpkin donuts and cider slushies too! Fall is definitely not disappointing! - - #momlifeinthemaking #pumpkinlove #fallintoautumn #pumpkinstakingover #pumpkinpatch #autumnhomedecor #braeutigamorchards @braeutigamorchards #colorpop #pumpkintime #shopsmall #shopsmallbusiness #supportlocal #supportfarmers #farmerlife
Just recently I have started writing letters (online) to our sweet, sweet babe. Although I wish I would have started sooner, I am thankful to have a space that is just for the three of us. For this sweet soul to know how important he or she already is in our lives, is imperative... "Today the Momma bear in me came out as I felt it was so important to advocate and validate you sweet babe. Today I had to be brave for you. Through this experience I reminded myself that your dad and I will raise you to be brave, bold, determined, full of the spirit and a strong force against opposition. Because you see sweet babe, you are exactly what God has planned all along. You are our firstborn, the most important thing in our lives and not a means to conceiving. Always know that I will fiercely protect you and promise to hold you close when the world tries to break your heart." So many people have wonderful intentions when speaking of adoption, infertility, loss during pregnancy, infant death etc. Today I am going to be brave and ask you to examine your words before you make any assumptions, even if you feel they may be harmless. Education is paramount for these topics, and I want to help be a voice for these women as well as these children. Adoption is our FIRST choice and we would love to share with you why. Have questions? Let me know! #aslanadoption #bringhomebabyaslan #lovemakesafamily
Ok, this "issue" has officially come up twice today, so clearly It's a sign that I need to address it with the masses... The bell sleeve trend!?! Is it even possible to change a diaper with a clean getaway!?! #theblondebartender

The night before last while lying in bed alone, I had a feeling come over me @ exactly 10:28pm that was SO familiar. I immediately started mentally preparing for the worst. My husband is out of town again and I know in an emergency the weight of the world is on my shoulders. I spent the next several minutes waiting for signs of an earthquake. I had a clear plan and was ready to do whatever it took to execute it. Eventually, enough time passed, I relaxed and drifted off to sleep. ....This morning over coffee, I told my mom about the feeling that came over me last night and she told me that there was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake in Jewell, Oregon just before 10:30pm last night. That's 56 miles from my house. My heart literally skipped a beat. Xoxo #theblondebartender πŸ“· @labellavita_mamaa
β€œIt’s been a long week” - me on a Tuesday πŸ˜‚ . . Going away this past weekend was just what I needed, but I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation to recover! Anyone have any good β€œroad trip with kids” tips?
I reach a certain point everyday, (sometimes sooner than later) that I just need to shake it off! It’s amazing to me that although there are countless joyful moments each and everyday, the ones that add up are the less glamorous ones. Do you know how many times I grazed a butthole with my pointer finger slathered in calendula diaper cream yesterday? Me either, I lost count...πŸŽΆπŸŽ™But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving. It's like I got this music in my mind, saying it's gonna be alright! Cause the boys are gonna poo, poo, poo, poo, poo and the dad’s are gonna phew, phew, phew, phew, phew. Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake. I shake it off, I shake it off.🎢 P.S. Yes, that was a @taylorswift song and you're welcome! On another note, when I first published this, I had said "braised a butthole" πŸ˜‚. Thanks @caitlynneier!!! #theblondebartender
Fall is in full swing over here in the PNW!πŸπŸ‚ It won't be long before we roll up the rug, bring in the plants and tarp all the furniture. I'm going to miss this view so much! Plans for that 9ft long table are coming soon! . . . . @kregjig @ridgidpowertools @homedepot #diy #woodworking #woodwork #sweetsaturdaysimplicity #fall #patio #patiodecor #patiofurniture #pumpkins #teamridgid #kregjig #kregtools #backyard #entertaining #table #diningtable #lifestyle #blog #blogging #momlifeinthemaking #fixerupper #home #homefurnishings #homedecor #homemaker #pnw #wallawalla #wallawallavalley #photography
Some times you need to have a cup of coffee at 3pm and let your toddler watch youtube videos to make the day a bit smoother. #sorrynotsorry #modernfarmhouse #mydecorvibe #modernfarmcharm #mycreativehomestyle #momlifeinthemaking #eclectichomemix #comfycasualfridays #fridiyday #friyaydecorday #fridayfarmhouseflair #frugalfridayfind
It’s feels like 90 degrees here in Tennessee but we we’re DETERMINED to go to a pumpkin patch today! πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ Ryker loves his @lillebaby carrier as much as I do! Even with all the heat we were both very comfortable and it was so easy to move around! . . . #momlifestyle #momlife #fashion_and_babies #bloggersofinstagram #mykidsdigs #bloggerstyle #lifewithkids #bloggers #momlifeisthebestlife #boymom #motherhoodrising #momlifeinthemaking #motherslife #motherhood #bloggingmama #momboss #blog #blogger
These pumpkins have been the best "toy" over the past few days. I bought them as my measly attempt to decorate for fall, but they have been used by Nora every day since. She organizes them, puts them in different spots in the house, she'll even on occasion share one with Isla... whatever keeps her busy! So much for my decor idea πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
