I know it has been So long since I have done a blog post! If you follow me on Snapchat (Jadealisonscott) then you already kind of know what has been going on. But today I just wanted to share my most recent Instagram pictures and give all of you a little update on life with two kids under two and what my future plans are for A Spoonful of Style. 

So Since my last blog post (over a month ago) I decided that I was going to take a break from the blog. Mainly because with two kids and no help (we don't live by our parents) accept from Matt of course it just really was not realistic of me to be able to get at least 3 posts up a week. The only time I really had to work on posts was at night and I can not keep my eyes open. I would fall asleep at my computer every night and then I would get upset with myself for not getting it done. So I decided it was best for me to just not put the pressure on myself and just accept that right now I can't blog and that is ok. 

So that is what I did. Also let me say that I love being home with my kids and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be. My kids come before anything and everything no matter what. But with that being said I personally think it is important as a wife and mother to still have something that I love doing. I don't want to completely loose myself. I feel it makes me a better wife and mother if I able able to keep doing something that I want to do and that makes me happy. Obviously it might not be exactly like it used to be and I am fine with that. 

Over the past month I have decided that I want to keep blogging. So today is my first day back. I planned on shooting some outfits this weekend but that didn't happen and that is Ok. But since it has been so long since I did a Instagram post I just thought I would start with that. 

I don't know exactly what blogging will look like for me in the future. For now I want to shoot for 2 to 3 posts a week. I am not going to set un realistic expectations for myself. Im just going to start slow and see how it goes. 

Since my life has changed so much (for the better) since I started A Spoonful of Style, I want to incorporate more of my daily life with two kids under two. So once a week or so I will be doing more of a lifestyle/mom post. It might just be my daily routine or some favorite products or even just what we have been up to. But I think it is important to share that part of my life as well. 

Fashion is the reason I started my blog and I still want that to be the main focus but I also want to add some other things. I am very excited to sort of re launch A Spoonful of Style. So within the next few weeks I am planning on doing just that. I am going to get a whole new blog design and kick this off with a really big giveaway for you guys as a way of saying thank you for all of the support through this journey! So be on the lookout for that. I don't have a date yet but it will be soon. 

Life with my family now that Lincoln is home, healthy and growing like a weed has truly been amazing! Don't get me wrong I have hard days where I just feel like I am doing everything wrong and I just want to give up. But no one said it would be easy but they did say it would be worth it! And it is. My life is crazy most of the time but I wouldn't change it. It has taken me some time to get into a routine but now that we have one things seem much easier. Lincoln is changing so much so I am sure our routine will change again soon! and that is ok. Sometimes it seems like as soon as I think I have some things figured out they change. 

Lincoln is almost 5 months old (3 month adjusted). I just can not believe it. He is huge! He is over 16 pounds which is bigger than Andi was at his age. He has totally caught up as far as size goes. We still have some work to do before he his caught up developmentally! But I am so proud of him. We are doing physical therapy and we are seeing huge improvements. 

Andi just loves him to death. The first thing she says in the morning when we go to get her is Lincoln. It seriously melts my heart. She is the best big sister! I just feel so incredibly lucky to have two thriving healthy children. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. 

Thank you all so much for all of the support! I can't wait to start blogging again! I have missed it. So I am really looking forward to it.

  7. You are an amazing mom! I follow you on snapchat and it is so obvious how much you love your babies!! I'm so glad to see you blogging again! As a mom, I know how important it is to keep the things that made us happy before kids still play a role in your life. My daughter is my number one priority and she makes my heart so full, but I never want to lose who I am and what made me happy before she was born. Cant wait to see more posts!

  11. I am so excited for you! And I look to you to see how you are getting by as I have a 2 1/2 year old with another on the way! I am nervous for life with two, as I am home as well, but hope I am up for the challenge. I am still searching for that special part of me that I can do while I am home. So you are so lucky that you have found that even if it's on a slight hold at times. I follow your posts and snaps and love them all! Goodluck on the next version of your blog, can't wait to see it up and running! :)

  19. Hi from New Zealand Jade. You're doing so well, and it's OK to cut back on your blog posts. We'll be here to read whatever you decide to post (and whenever).

  20. I would love to see more of your daily routine, mom life and how you manage it all... As much as I love fashion I would love to see more of what you would wear for a trip to Target or the market bc as a mom myself I don't have time to glam up or even the energy to look cute... sometimes it is nice knowing that the jeans and sneakers and sweats I throw on to wear are just as common amongst other moms. I am a loyal follower and was always saying little prayers for Lincoln! :)

  26. Finding time when you have little ones is so hard, but regardless of whether you post once a week or once a month I'm always so happy to have your posts in my bloglovin feed! Every time I end up clicking and buying so many of the items you wear! So thank you because I don't have time to shop with two little boys and use blogs like yours to shop online and order my clothes that way. Now off to finish my order at Nordstorm........yay thank you!

  27. So glad to have you back! I've loved keeping up with your daily style on insta & snapchat, but it'll be great to see more of how you're making it work with two young kids.
