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

Tuesday, November 29, 2016


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! 

Makeup for New Moms & Giveaway

Thursday, November 17, 2016



If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I posted my current go to makeup products I have been using lately. When Lucas was first born I didn't even attempt to use any, but now that we are all getting into a little bit of a routine I've been able to cover up the signs of lack of sleep. Ha!

Freedom.

Thursday, November 10, 2016



With the election being behind us and without getting too much into politics, today I wanted to share how thankful I am for my freedom. Thankful for my right to vote. Thankful for freedom of speech. 

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!

Birthday Celebrations & Weekending


I've always loved the month of October, not only because it's my birthday month, but because of the change in weather, and all that comes with that. 



I'm excited about all of the fun Lucas is going to experience with us as he gets older. For now he's been eating and taking his cat naps as much as he could.

I've tried on his Lion costume a few times before today to see how he looks in it but so far he's hated it. I don't think he likes how fussy it is. It will do for some pictures with his older sister Dorothy (I'll share photos tomorrow). 

In the mean time, I'll share some birthday celebration photos and from the past few days. 








  















 Have a safe and Happy Halloween! Look out for Halloween pictures tomorrow or on my social media-links below!

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! 

Fall 2016 Bucket List

Wednesday, September 28, 2016


Fall is in full swing over here in Boston and we took advantage by knocking one of our Fall Bucket list items off our list. 

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... 🍎🍏😉

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!

Practice Self Care

Friday, September 9, 2016



Now that I am a mommy and my life revolves around my little guys needs and wants, I can tell I won't always get to fix my hair, or do my nails. Honestly, I don't miss those things much, although I was able to straighten my hair a week ago and everyone noticed it and commented how pretty I looked. Ha!

End Of Summer Bucket List

Wednesday, September 7, 2016



Although everyone is going crazy about PSL, boots and scarves, it's still Summer. Baby boy was born in the middle of Summer and I didn't do anything really exciting with being in my third trimester and all. I did go on daily walks which I think helped during delivery.

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.

Still On Baby Watch-Five Favorites

Friday, July 22, 2016

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:

90% Done

Still Weekending-The 4th of July

Tuesday, July 5, 2016


The weekend was super busy and warm, I am currently still weekending as today is a vacation off day. This week is actually my last week of work as I wait for baby boy to come. I'm thrilled that I was able to keep working until my original end date, July 7th.
