Life Lately + 4th Trimester Update 

Posted in Life Lately, The Pregnancy Diaries
on August 8, 2017

Oh my stars has it been forever since I’ve written something for the blog! I literally have a pit of sadness in my heart because our new home in the country isn’t quite equipped with wifi right now, therefore Stringfellow + Co has been on a little break. 

Tear. 😢

You can see way more life updates on my Instagram, so I’d love it if you hopped over there and turn that follow button white! 

Since my last entry SO much has happened. I’M NOT PREGNANT ANYMORE! I had planned a ton of final pregnancy posts but the reality of it all was THE LAST WEEKS OF PREGNANCY ARE SO HARD. I found myself planted on a couch or a bed 95% of the time. Between moving, unpacking, planning for our 3rd boy and planning a million times over I’m not sure how we even found time to eat. 😂 

Just kidding, Stringfellow’s love their food. 

On July 23rd we welcomed our newest little boy named Wade Roy Stringfellow. I was dealing with contractions for a week until he decided to show, labor was quick but we hit a stressful speed bump, and the first week home was BRUTAL, but that’s a story all it’s own that I’ll share soon!

God helped us through it and we’re all one big happy healthy family! We’re preparing for the next glorious school year starting in the coming weeks so life hasn’t quite slowed down enough yet.. beginning to think it never actually does!

I have great things in the works for ze blog in the coming months. And by great things I mean more content, awesome product features for baby and mama and a view into our cute new “farmhouse” and all the goodies my husband let me buy for it. Just grin and bear it, babe. 😘 

I hope you haven’t forgotten about our cute little clan & I especially hope you’ve had an awesome summer! ☀️

Hey guys!! It’s been a while since I’ve checked in on this blog of mine.. Im usually over on my Insta-blog and from there you can see what’s been going on daily!

The past few weeks have been such a whirlwind! Of course I need to start by saying Wyatt is registered for school! I can’t even fathom how crazy our lives will be when he starts school but I’m expecting the worst and hoping for the best.

I realize now that my job as his mother has only just begun. I have a huge weight on my shoulders because I know that the rest of his life will flourish as much as he thrives in school.. If that even makes sense. What I’m trying to say is, I hated school growing up, I moved a lot and I never had a tight group of friends with me from grade to grade. I quickly became awkward and not motivated to excel in most things. I want need Wyatt to love school, make tons of friends, and know what he is capable of doing. Because that attitude will morph him into a successful young man.

And what mother doesn’t want a successful, handsome, charming young man??

I am super excited that I’ll get more one on one time with my toddler, Westin. We’ve never been able to get out and do things together because I never wanted Wyatt to feel left out. So I’m ready to see who Westin is without his brother around. Maybe he’ll be as lost as I am.. then we will realize how much we need each other in this time of need. (insert laughing crying emoji)

This weekend is looking to be quite busy as well! I hate being busy. It stresses me out and makes me sleepy. Tonight we have a sitter lined up just so my Husband and I can go shopping in peace. It’s sad when you kids make you avoid malls all together.

Sad but true.

We I will be putting together some fun colorful outfits for our family pictures tomorrow! As stressful and that makes me the end results are always amazing. Our photographer is the bomb.com and I don’t know what I’d do without her.

We’ll be headed to the newest color wall in downtown Houston and I cannot wait! It’s so different than anything we’ve ever done and Im excited to see how downtown looks on us.

And last, but certainly not least. I will be headed to my very first Houston Bloggers Meet-Up this Sunday and I am ecstatically nervous.. Yes, thats a thing. The Houston Blogging community is so big and it really is such a tight knit group of friends. I can’t wait to meet up with some of ladies I met at the Thrive Blog Conference in February, here’s to finding my tribe!

The meet-up will be held at the Sugar & Cloth studio and if you don’t know Ashley and her amazing blog where have you been hiding all this time? She’s a nationally renowned DIY and lifestyle blogger and the epitome of all things awesome! Ashley will be talking about turning a blog into a business, so I’ll be all ears.

Also.. MUFFINS.

Carbs shmarbs.. We’ve been enjoying the taste of fresh blueberry muffins! The brand is Duncan Hines Simple Mornings and we are obsessed y’all! They are made with fresh wild Maine blueberries that come in a can and ARE NOT dried up and sad.

And that makes me happy.

I’m also pretty happy its Friday!

Theres some exciting things to come next week on the blog as I have partnered up with Nuby! Keep checking in!

Have a fantastic weekend y’all!!

2015 has been a whirlwind. I refuse to believe I haven’t grown this year. Our year started out rocky, seriously from January 1, 2015, obstacles have been thrown our way but we have overcome them ten fold.

As the saying goes, you cannot expect growth without being knocked down every once and a while. Continue reading

Its My Birthday And I’ll Blog If I Want To

Happy Birthday to me! 25 whole years of living and boy do I feel like I should be a tad bit older by now! The first 19 years of my life were all fun and games, then I became a Mother at 20 and I learned a new, equally tiring, form of fun. However this Motherhood fun seems to age my mind quicker than my body. It’s give and take right?? Continue reading

Quick update on the blog: Okay, my 7 day leave was a bit much. Don’t you think? In the back of my mind I’ve been rethinking my vision for this blog of mine. If you haven’t already noticed I designed myself a brand new banner. Pretty, huh? As far as my blog’s content, I’ve reorganized it a bit, and decided to delete some worthless ramblings that don’t really contribute to my vision for Stringfellow and Company. It’s a work in progress and probably will be for quite some time. I am a nit picker, and I’ve finally accepted that. Continue reading
