neuLASH Review

After I had Olivia I experienced what many new moms experience and that is hair loss! Luckily, I have always had a lot of hair so a random person couldn’t tell I was losing it. But I could tell! For what seemed like months, much of it fell out when I washed my hair. I wasn’t that upset about it because I knew this was just part of  ...

How I Lost My Pregnancy Weight and More!

Olivia is ONE and I am 75lbs lighter! Crazy what ONE year can do! I thought it would be fitting to talk about this topic now since most people have some type of fitness or nutrition goal at the beginning of a new year. Here’s a shortened up version of how I lost the weight… After giving birth, I immediately lost 30lbs. The first 2-3 months  ...

Rothenberg Christmas Market

Stefan wanted to take his family to an iconic German Christmas market and we couldn’t think of a better Christmas market than Rothenberg, Germany. When we went last year Stefan compared it to something magical like Disneyland. It’s hard to believe people actually live in the tudor style houses along the market way. It is the cutest town I  ...

Strasbourg, France Christmas Market

The Strasbourg, France Christmas market is my favorite Christmas market to attend. When we went to the market last year I was about 8 months pregnant with Olivia. About an hour after we got home from the market my water broke! Olivia was almost born in France! Not only is the market beautiful, but it will always be special to me because of Olivia! This  ...

Olivia’s First Birthday Party

Olivia’s birthday was on December 20th. We had a birthday party for her with friends and family on the 18th. I have been planning her birthday party for months! I kept changing the theme. I went from being set on a Winter Wonderland theme to wanting to do a funfetti theme and I finally settled on Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star! She would always  ...

Sankt Wendel Christmas Market

We had the best time walking around the Sankt Wendel Christmas Market being photographed by Danielle Segui. Danielle does day in the life photography which is great because you can wonder around and not have to worry about the perfect pose. Stefan is usually the one taking all of the photos which leaves him out of the picture all of the time. It was  ...

Olivia’s Nursery: Christmas Edition

Olivia doesn’t spend a lot of time playing in her nursery, but I still wanted to decorate it for Christmas. I hung tinsel around her door. That was probably a bad idea because every morning I am running after her pulling tinsel out of her hands. I strung lights on her windowsill and bookshelf, and also put tinsel around her giraffe which she ended  ...

Olivia’s Christmas Pajamas

I may have went a little bit overboard with Christmas pajamas for Olivia this year, but they are just too cute to pass up! If Olivia and I don’t have plans for the day I will keep her in her pajamas all day long. They get a lot of wear. We typically go through about 3 outfits a day, one after every meal! They are so easy to change and play around  ...

Forest Christmas Market Johanniskreuz

After our exciting outing to see Santa Claus we decided to head to a local Christmas market in the small town of Johanniskreuz (St. John’s Cross). As we approached the market there was a man directing traffic, and we were told to park alongside the road, but there was no Christmas Market in sight.  So we parked and started walking in the direction  ...
