Party of Five

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen the news, but I wanted to share on the blog too. Our family is growing! This summer we will go from a family of four to a family of five!  



I’m due on the 4th of July, and it’s a running joke in our family that our kids must really love the holidays. My son’s original due date was Christmas Eve, and my daughter was due the day after Halloween. Neither was born on the actual holiday, and I don’t expect this one to be either, but you never know!


24 weeks

I’ve posted about my pregnancy a few times on Instagram, just not on the blog. It’s harder for me to share personal news on the blog, it just seems so permanent! But this week, I’m entering my third trimester and feeling great, so it’s time to make it official! Our kids are really, really excited, and we are all looking forward to meeting our sweet girl! Oh yeah…it’s a girl!




PS –  I have a great new slow cooker recipe to share tomorrow, so check back. It’s perfect for Easter!






  1. I am so SO thrilled for you and your family Melissa! XO
