VEGAMOUR - Ready, Set, Gro Kit


If you know me you know I'm obsessed with hair & scalp care. Nothing is better than a product that gives you good hair day after good hair day! I was a bit worried after all the IVF drugs & hormonal changes that my hair would take a hit, but back in March I started using Vegamour Gro Kit and my hair and scalp have actually improved over the last few months. It's grown like crazy and the little baby hairs on top of my head have to be tamed. I think a lot of people only think about taking care of their hair, but just like your face your scalp needs love too. I apply the Vegamour Hair Gro Serum to the crown of my head and above each temple where it's always a bit thinner, after shampooing and conditioning with their revitalizing set. I've also been using their detoxifying serum on the same areas that I apply the serum. The detoxifying serum goes on BEFORE washing and helps remove buildup which is important for me because I use lots of styling products and go 4-6 days between washing. 

For this post I went back to look at my hair over the last few months and I'm definitely happy with this product. With all the fertility treatments and endometriosis, I'm always very concerned about clean ingredients and Vegamour uses plant based phytoactives instead of silicone and sulfates like many other beauty companies. 

I could not give a more glowing product review! Truly love this stuff. Oh, and I have to mention the SMELL. It smells amazing, my niece smelled it and now she is planning to get the set soon. Go to their website and look at the BEFORE & AFTER reviews. It's really amazing how much new hair growth others have had with it.

Just Breathe


I had an ultrasound and blood work today as we get ready for our frozen embryo transfer (FET). This morning as the phlebotomist was taking my blood I noticed her tattoo "JUST BREATHE!" The prayer Ryan said before we left our house on May 17, 2016 for the FET of our Magnolia, was "JUST BREATHE!" It was a simple prayer, and the song "Just Breathe" by Willie Nelson was our song for our journey to her. After our transfer in 2016, I was wheeled back to our room & the doctor's office music started to play "Breathe" by Anna Nalick. Our prayer played above our heads the moment we got back to our room!!! I'll never forget how Ryan's eyes instantly teared up as we felt God working miracles in our lives and sending us signs of peace + hope + love.

Mandee Reid Photography


My friend Mandee, with Mandee Reid Photography, came over Saturday afternoon to take some photos of Magnolia in our home. The sun was shining bright, Mandee was working her magic behind the camera, and Magnolia loved being the subject of the day. It was a BEAUTIFUL DAY. Now I have all these incredibly special photos to cherish forever. I love them all so much, but the detailed shot she took of Magnolia's six year old hands - still with dimples in them - will forever mean so very much to me.

*** NOW TO THE GOOD PART ***

Mandee is offering $200 MINI SESSIONS for the month of April! You can book now and schedule anytime in April at a place of your choice, including your home. Highly recommend YOUR HOME where all the love + magic + memories happen. You will get 10-12 high resolution photos.

Magnolia is SIX!!!


Magnolia turned SIX years old on the third. She had a Ballerina Bath Bomb birthday party at Buff City Soap with her cousins and dance + neighbor friends. It was the most fun party we have ever had. On her actual birthday she wanted to control the day, basically a YES DAY, and from the moment she woke up until bedtime she was in charge. It was a blast for me too and I made a reel on Instagram if you want to see little pieces of our day. I feel like so much has happened in this month of February. She went with me to almost all of my IVF appointments and we are so grateful to have one frozen embryo. Her very first tooth fell out! All three of her dances took first place at her very first dance competition of the season. It's been a very fun and blessed month!!!

IVF Miracle Update


We got the call yesterday afternoon while the whole entire city was celebrating our Chiefs THE World Champions. We have one PERFECT frozen embryo!!! Imagine all the confetti thrown at the parade and multiply it by one million, that's how much our hearts are celebrating. 

The embryologist referred to our embryo as high quality and perfect several times. It was so hard to hold in the tears as my voice was trembling talking to her about the next steps.

All the HEART Eyes


Magnolia shares my love for VALENTINE'S DAY! The night before our photos with Shelby Lynn we were at dinner, and she said "we need to hurry home and get to bed" because she had to get up early and get ready! And she woke up at 4:30 am, we definitely did not need to get up that early, but she's an early bird and was excited to start the day. She had so much fun at the studio and loves the camera, she also adores Shelby! Doing mini sessions with Shelby is always the best time because she can work her magic in 15 minutes or less and the kids stay excited and into it the whole time. If your local to Kansas City, you just have to do a session with her. Photos to CHERISH FOREVER! See other photos we did with Shelby here, here, here, here, and here. Every single time I open an email with photos from her it will literally take my breath away. Talent, passion, magic, love, timely, creative - you name it - she's got it!
