One of my biggest fears is someone in my family getting a concussion. It can happen at any time to anyone: during a soccer game, while roughhousing, falling from a ladder, or at a cheerleading competition to name a few. Ever since Hudson’s birth I’ve been fearful of that dreaded
Ok before anyone asks, I lost that cute little burlap and flowers piece that I’ve used the last couple weeks for my bump pictures. I probably threw it away or shoved it somewhere and forgot. Damn preggo brain. Anyways, I had to improvise. It’s moving day!! This picture is the
Finally in the second trimester! Whew I thought that milestone would never come to pass. Longest 1st trimester ever. It’s been a crazy week full of weddings, new clients, packing, fun collabs and our gender reveal with my love Joleen Pete Photography. And before you have to ask this gorgeous
I know I’m late on this! Lots of craziness going on over here at the Hughes’ household. Good craziness though. If you remember last weeks post, we thought we were going to lose the house we bought. Well thanks to all those prayers ya’ll sent up for us, we’re moving

I had never heard of a busy bag until my friend Joleen did this post on The Ultimate Guide to Summer for Toddlers. Which, by the way, has saved my sanity numerous times over. But I digress, back to busy bags. As soon as I read what they were, I
Ok just writing “10 Week Bump Update” is so surreal to me. There’s a human growing inside of me? WHAT?! I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t heard bump-bumps heartbeat last week. Oh my is that the sweetest sound. Also, if you’re wondering the context behind the picture above, we
Before anyone gets upset, don’t worry the wine wasn’t for me. Hahah ok now that we have that cleared up, here’s how we celebrated Baby Number #2! My husband and I have a tradition whenever something exciting happens for the family, to do a late dinner just us two. We

Well yesterday was just the sweetest. We had a fun filled day, including a little party at the park for Hudson. I may have teared up (just a little) over how happy he was! We’re pretty blessed with some awesome friends that made his day extra special. P.S. This and
Today, my sweet boy, you are two. It’s so cliche to say, but I swear you were a snuggly newborn just yesterday. However, those days are long gone. You are a vivacious, charismatic, and hilarious little human being. I take such joy in watching you learn and explore your world.

After several trips and amusement parks, I have perfected the “survival bag” of being a toddler mommy. If you have ALL of these things in your possession during a trip or an all day outing, you will make it out alive. I promise. From Disney, to Universal Studios, to
