If you didn’t know already, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. As someone who has battled depression and anxiety their whole life, I’m appreciative that discussions surrounding mental health have become more prevalent. However, I still think the topic is a bit taboo (and systemically doesn’t have enough support in place). Because of this, I […]

My Story of Mental Health

read the blog

Ok, honestly I haven’t really changed, just became a better version of my “old” self. Over the past year I have been really focusing on my own mental health, personal growth, and figuring out what is next. After 3.5 years, this Fall semester I will be defending my dissertation and becoming Dr. Blair Stamper. In […]

I’m sure you’ve heard the huge hype of the Netflix Original Movie, Bird Box.  I’m not normally one of the ones to jump on the bandwagon of watching shows just because everyone else has seen it.  But, of course, I got sucked into it when my husband started watching it one Friday night.  You may […]

Oh my goodness does time fly.  I feel like I’m going to have to do weekly blog posts just to catch up with all the amazingness that has happened in the past 8 months.  Yes, that is right.  Bailee is 8 months old.  Um, what?! Since, I am so behind in posting anything about Bailee […]

We have had Miss Bailee for almost 6 weeks now.  As I sit down to write about our first week with her, it feels like ages ago.  She has already grown, developed, and changed so much since that first week.  We, as parents, have also changed and I would like to say we have gotten […]

Our First Week as Parents

Before I was pregnant, I told myself “we don’t need the most expensive things for our baby.”  HA, well that went out the window when I became pregnant.  To help other moms, I decided to start a review of the baby items that we have bought and used with Bailee. The first review is on […]

It was Wednesday, September 13th.  I was 39 weeks and 4 days.  My last day of work was going to be that Friday.  My boss had bought me a Spa Package and I thought it was the perfect time to use it since my due date was fast approaching.  I took the day off and […]

Bailee’s Birth Story <3

read the blog

Ever since I announced I was pregnant, it is like people foam at the mouth around me.  They don’t understand the idea of “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.”  OR they think that because I’m pregnant, that means they don’t have to have a filter around me.  Either […]

I suppose I spoke too soon!  Last week, I wrote about how Hershey was a star at our weekly trainings.  That SAME day, Domino became a star as well! Let me back up a bit.  That Wednesday, I was having an off day.  I already didn’t feel like going out in public, but pushed myself […]
