A Working Mama’s Guide to Pumping

I am very behind in writing this post because I finished pumping at work last October – shortly after my little lady turned one. I pumped at work for over nine months after my maternity leave, so I know firsthand that pumping at work (and breastfeeding in general) can be super daunting. I wanted to share any advice I could….. better late than never, right?

Prime Day!

First of all, if you don’t have Amazon Prime, what are you waiting for? I honestly don’t know what I did before Prime. It is so nice with our hectic lives to just get things delivered in two days, let alone the subscribe & save discounts on diapers, snacks, etc. We also love Prime Video! Click here for a free Prime trial to enjoy Prime Day and all of our other favorite benefits.

First, let’s address the elephant in the room: Amazon totally dropped the ball on having their site working today. So, *if* you are able to get through to Amazon, I wanted to share some of my favorite Prime Day specials.  If you click through on any of my links, I may receive a small commission, so thanks in advance for your support 🙂

Before I launch into today’s deals, I wanted to share about our new bedsheets. I came across these sheets from another Instagrammer and they. are. amazing. The best part is they are only $25!!! They have a zillion great reviews on Amazon, and so far we have loved them!!

Okay, here are some 2018 Prime Day Deals!

Here is my first update, which encompasses everything about this pregnancy so far!

Seize the Day! 

Can you believe there isn’t a single filter on this picture?? The first morning of our Colorado vacation, Charlie woke up at 5:45am. (Thanks for nothing time zone change) Rather than throw ourselves a pity party, we brewed some coffee, packed her up, and walked to catch sunrise by the Frisco marina.  We were legit the only ones out there, and it was actually quite cold, but God provided us the most magical morning.  It is crazy to think that if we stayed in we would have missed this.  We even went again the next morning and it wasn’t nearly as beautiful. You just never know when a moment like this is waiting. Moral of the story? Seize the day (and God is so good!)

Here are some more pictures from that morning.
