How to get your Best Nine Photos on Instagram

Saturday, December 31, 2016



I thought yesterday was going to be my last post for 2016, but then I got my best nine photos for Instagram and saw several people asking how they could get theirs. It's super easy, here's how:

2016.

Friday, December 30, 2016



The best time of my life started the second I knew you existed! We heard your heart last Christmas Eve, & the whole year of 2016 has been nothing but amazing. My body carried you and you were so good to me, through my whole pregnancy. I loved what came with carrying you for 41 weeks and it's honestly an experience I will always cherish.

Giveaway: Makeup and Tips for New Moms

How is it the Tuesday after Thanksgiving already? We are in full Christmas mode over here and couldn't be happier. I always feel a tad bit guilty about celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving, but this year we are all a little extra excited! 

I Am Thankful For Lucas

Wednesday, November 2, 2016



Happy Thursday friends! I'll be sharing a Thankful Thursday post every Thursday this month in celebration of Thanksgiving! Yesterday, I shared a post on my Instagram about sharing a Thankful Thursday post every Thursday until Thanksgiving! Join me below in the comments or on my Instagram and tell me what you're thankful for! 

on the day after Halloween

Monday, October 31, 2016



I'd like to call yesterday, successful. It was Lucas' first Halloween and we thought long and hard about what awesome costume we could dress Emily and Lucas in that would be matchy matchy. We went with Dorothy and the Lion!

The BIG 30

Thursday, October 27, 2016



I wish I would have made a 30 before 30 list, that's a thing right? I didn't, & even though I didn't, I'm feeling super accomplished right now. I'm also feeling like it's ok to not always have goals placed for a certain time frame and just go with the flow. Of course, goals are great, but it's ok if you just live. 

MIA, Outings & Breastfeeding In Public

Sunday, October 16, 2016

Hi, my name is Veronica and I've been MIA from the blogging world and very focused on my son Lucas. He turned two months last weekend and had his two month appointment shortly after, along with his shots!! Look out for his two month update soon! We are uploading a new video everyday, be sure to watch today's, I thank (a quick shoutout because Lucas quickly wanted to be fed haha) a special person for supporting our family! 

Apple Picking with a Newborn

Monday, September 26, 2016



It's official! Fall is here & with it, apple picking fun with the family, & Lucas' first time. He did sleep through most of it and spent his time in the Ergo carrier, but we did get some photos with him and Emily had a blast picking apples and a pumpkin for her and her brother. We make it out every year and this year was extra special with Lucas being here. 



My brother, his wife and daughter along with my mom were able to go as well and it was so fun to spend time with everyone. My older brother Manny tried to get apples that were rather high with the help of my husband Jose. It didn't end well. He fell and got a really bad scratch, basically on his whole back. Oh and let's talk about having to nurse while standing up in the middle of the orchard... šŸŽšŸšŸ˜‰

Other than that we had so much fun & I wanted to share some photos:









How was your weekend? Hope it was great! Happy Monday! Linking up with Biana for Weekending

One Month Update

Friday, September 16, 2016




Lucas had his one month appointment today and I thought I'd do a baby update, both in case it's helpful for other moms and just so that I have to look back on when he's older. He's doing great and we are so thankful for his health-we are blessed. 

One Month.

Thursday, September 15, 2016



One month. How? This is the fastest I felt a month go by. Can't stop time even though we would all want it to atleast slow down. Lucas has his one month appointment and am planning on posting an update on his weight, likes, dislikes etc. Also, there's a super sweet video on our channel of Lucas and daddy having a smiling fest, see that here

Happy one month to my sweet baby, you are simply amazing. The purest of loves that exists. I love you Lucas Oliver!

Happy Birthday Princess

Monday, September 5, 2016



My sweet princess, such a special little person (not so little anymore). I hope as time goes our friendship will continue to grow. You became a part of my life the moment you walked into it.

Ten Tiny Fingers and Ten Tiny Toes

Monday, August 22, 2016



He's here! It seemed like it would take forever for him to be here but here he is.

Four Days Past Due Date

Friday, August 12, 2016



Alright, I am 40 weeks and 4 days along. I had a feeling I would deliver this baby last night, maybe later, maybe tomorrow... Sunday? Ha! If he doesn't come on his own, I'm going in on Monday to get a little help.

Two Days Past Due

Wednesday, August 10, 2016



Getting to our due date seemed like a lifetime away a few months ago, even a few weeks ago. Here we are now two days past due and it feels so surreal!

Due Date

Monday, August 8, 2016



Woah! How did that happen? Today is my due date. I think pregnancy can go really fast for others, for example, maybe you think time went by really fast for me. However, when it's your preganncy, not so much. In my case anyway, I have been feeling so anxious towards the end that it has felt like an eternity.

Quick Update-Still No Baby

Thursday, August 4, 2016



Technically he's still has some time to come, but I just can't help but feel so anxious to see him, hold him, kiss him.. You get the point.

3 Weeks To Go

Monday, July 18, 2016


It's Monday already, the weekend flew by, it was a hot one, I can barely remember what we did and as I look through my camera feed there aren't many photos of videos. We didn't vlog but I'm backed up on videos so there is a new video today (if you're obsessed with Pokemon Go, you might enjoy)! 
Today, I'm sharing a little of my feelings for Lucas as we reach 3 weeks until due date. 

First Week at Home

Today, I'm sharing and linking up with Amanda to five things from my first week at home waiting for baby!!

36 Week Pregnancy Update

Thursday, July 14, 2016



You know it's getting close to due date when you set up your bassinet and infant car seat (see the fun on my snap, vero_var). Not sure if we did this too early but it was basically the last things we needed to do and just did it to get it done and ready. The reality is that you just don't really know when baby will come. 
Here's a quick 36 week update:

Pregnancy Wear: The Weekend

Thursday, May 26, 2016


I have found the perfect maternity dress, a pretty one that is. The best part about it is that it's not an actual maternity dress. 



Oh, Hello There 3rd Trimester

Monday, May 23, 2016



Third trimester is here with a punch! Here's an update of what went on towards the end of my second trimester and beginning of the third. 

Our BabyQ Invitations

Wednesday, May 11, 2016


We ordered our BabyQ invitations using the Invite Shop's app on my phone. I can't even begin to explain how I am always doing things with my phone but sometimes things like ordering custom items are easier on a PC. I thought this would be the same but it wasn't, using the app was so easy. We are so happy with how they turned out. The quality is great for the price and their customer service was amazing.

We wanted a low key event where we would feel at home, literally, and be comfortable. We're going with a BabyQ. We are excited for good food and great company to celebrate baby Lucas! 







Last minute we changed the date of out babyshower, after ordering the invitations. I wrote to them to see if I could change the date and they quickly responded yes and made everything super easy and smooth. The process of creating our cards was also very easy and there were lots of options for creativity! Loved InviteShop, wish I would have known about them sooner!
Have you used them before? Where do you get your invitations from?

Mother's Day Weekending

Monday, May 9, 2016



Oh hello there Monday. I've been up since 4am. I just couldn't sleep. I'm hoping his doesn't become a trend already. Mother's Day weekend was fantastic. We spent it together as a family, with lots of love, food and laughter.

Day In The Life

Wednesday, May 4, 2016



The other day, I read this post from Annie and thought it would be fun to do one before Lucas comes into my world and changes everything. I've always worked with kids so I pretty much know what days can be like with babies and toddlers, so no surprises there. I'm curious to see how Lucas will be, because from my personal experience, kids can be SO different when parents are present.

Baby Clothes, Yummy Food & Baby Kicks-Weekending

Monday, May 2, 2016


The weekends are the best, especially when they include yummy breakfasts. This weekend consisted of lots of baby kicks, filming a baby clothing haul (subscribe so you don't miss out), having delicious coconut treats from Puerto Rico, and visiting grandma... I also did some minor shopping and some of our baby registry gifts started to come in, which was very exciting. 

On My Radar: Maternity Wear

Wednesday, April 27, 2016



I'd love to say that I am all about that fashion life while pregnant, but I wasn't about the fancy life before pregnancy, never mind now.

Babyshower Invitations, Baby Registry and The Cherry On Top

Monday, April 25, 2016





The weekend came and went as usual pretty fast. I did get a few things done like the babyshower invitations. I'm linking up with Biana to share a little bit of the weekend. 

A Throwback

Thursday, April 21, 2016




It's Thursday! This week went by super fast. I had a five day weekend and went in to work on Tuesday feeling rather energetic.

Weekend Extended

Monday, April 18, 2016



Woohoo! Happy Marathon Monday/Patriot's Day! We get an extra day off this weekend, so currently I am still weekending. Wishing all of the runners today all of the luck in the world.
