This DIY growth ruler has been on our to-do list for a while (it’s a bit tougher with a baby to do projects!) but SO happy that we finally got it done! Will be a family keepsake for sure… [check out the rest of Bryce’s nursery here] I actually moved it in this corner of his nursery—looks so great!
It took several weeks and careful orchestration with Bryce’s feedings and long runs, a gum surgery, and a cold at the very end, but I did it! Finished my third ever half marathon in 1:45:57, a PR by over 8 minutes. I never, never imagined that would happen…and the weekend of my 30th birthday to boot. Huge thanks to my hubs for his support and our 6 month old little love and motivator, Bryce! Woo hoo!
I’m a huge fan of CVS as it is, but this haul of products from the Gold Emblem line has me loving them even more! (The gummies came along with me for the half marathon as race fuel…) Oh, and if you share your CVS pics on Insta with #CVSFallFun, you have a chance to win a $25 gift card!
Do you know the muffin man? You know, the one who lives on Drooly Lane?
And for Bryce’s 1st Halloween, he went as Charlie Brown. Perfectly fitting, considering he is so blond he almost looks bald. Adorable!
And some links to share…
Do you love Chip & Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper as much as I do? Then you are going to drool over her home collection…
Was thinking about trying Madewell denim after hearing reading reviews from Madison and Kate. Has anyone else tried it? Worth the price tag? While I’m at it, I’ll throw this adorable top in my cart too.
This blog post on giving yourself grace and this one on how marriage matters really hit home for me…
Are you a planner freak like me? You’ll love this ultimate planner review. And when I say ultimate, I mean it!
That’s all for now- have a great weekend!

I hadn’t heard about Joanna Gaines’ home collection… Awesome!!!
I love her style and personality (and the couple’s chemistry too). Such a standout family with an eye for great design! I wonder if I can have her come over to my house? Hmmm….
Congrats on the half marathon PR!
I love the ruler! Our dining room wall is our current marker… haha!
Thanks so much Kristin! And we totally would have used a wall in our house, but in the chance that we move, we knew we wanted to take it with us! It’s a fairly easy DIY (and there are tons on Etsy too)!
Congrats on the half marathon! Way to go!
Thanks Laura- still can’t believe that happened!

Congrats on the half marathon! And yes, the Madewell denim is WORTH IT. I’ve worn my new pair about 10 times and they still hold their shape without washing. Um, amazing! :)
So glad to hear it! How do you recommend washing them?
