Hi there! My name is Megan and I’m a mama born & raised in the midwest. This is my personal blog where I share a little bit of everything from life as a #boymom of 2 wild ones, DIY home ideas & decor, as well as some cute & always reasonable style. Let’s be real, mamahood is no walk in the park, so let’s pair it with a cute top and talk about it! I’m also a 2nd grade teacher who loves inspiring little people to learn and encouraging them to dream big. Next to me in the picture is my handy husband & love, Mike. Anything we do to our house is done by him, while I pick the finishes and style. Our wild boys are Knox & Mack, and of course our first fur-baby is Nash (not pictured here). The boys were 2 under 2 when Mack was born, so the last couple years have been just a bit wild to say the least. We live in the Chicagoland suburbs, where everything is very suburban-y and weather is the most unpredictable thing (if you know what I mean, you know what I mean).
In this blog, I’m going to share a whole lotta mama, with a little bit of style, home decor, and honestly whatever else comes up. It’s going to be casual, my writing will be far from perfect, and you might not like everything I post and that is OKAY! My goal is to inspire you all that mamahood is a blessing that can be messy, humorous, fun, & stylish all at the same time and it’s okay if you are just surviving. Although being a mama is a VERY important job, I encourage you to not take yourselves too seriously. Once you are able to find humor through the overwhelming times of parenthood, I think you’ll find yourself enjoying it so much more.
I’m a sucker for a good quote, shiplap, photography, overalls, birth stories, sunshine, deep dish Chicago pizza, matching outfits, & most of all- making my boys smile. I always find myself looking for the bright side of things & will always choose kindness, inclusivity, and love.
SO give yourself a little grace today (& everyday), grab a drink, sit back & let’s chat all things mamahood… because there truly is no hood like mamahood!
