Even though I’ve been a mother for over 4 years now, I’m still in awe of all the things that change once you become a mom. Some are good, some are bad, and some are the best feelings you could ever imagine. People can tell you all about the changes you’ll go through once you become a parent but you truly can’t imagine it until it happens to you.

Your utmost and top priority is the needs and wants of your child and not your own, there’s another human being that you are completely in charge of their well-being, and there’s no love that can be explained into words that will overcome you like the love you have for you child.

Now I wouldn’t be telling the whole story unless I mentioned the not so great body changes as well… I’ve mentioned some things in my Postpartum post about things nobody told me or warned me about after having a baby.

My feet being a bigger size and none of my shoes fitting

Swelling in my hands and not being able to wear my rings (7 months later and still having trouble with this!)

And the biggie…my body changes that have affected me fitting back into my clothes.

Some of these things may seem a little superficial to some…

But as a woman we all want to look and feel our best right??

There’s no shame in that and even though it may not be the biggest life changes, it is still something that affects us emotionally with wanting to feel and look like our old selves and that having a baby didn’t change us completely!

I’m trying my hardest to embrace these motherhood changes, and I’m on a mission to find quality clothing that is flattering on my somewhat “new body” but also trendy and chic! Clothing items that I love finding right now are cute stretchy, flowy dresses. Made with the right fabric and design, midi and maxi dresses are super flattering!

My new favorite dress is this adorable floral high-low midi dress I found at one of my favorite local boutiques. Floral prints are a big trend this fall and now that we’re finally seeing fall temperatures in Texas, I love pairing dresses with cute booties and a casual army jacket!

It’s a super easy outfit to pull off in the morning while running out the door with three kids in tow, and still look put together.

Unfortunately, another MAJOR change for me since becoming a mom is my now poor time management skills. Before I was a mom, I was early to everything, never wanted to be a person who walked in late to a meeting, to school, or even just meeting up with friends.

I (shamefully) would even turn up my nose at people who walk into a room late, thinking to myself

How rude…

Don’t they realize how selfish it is to arrive late?

What bad etiquette!

Well no longer do I have these judgmental thoughts…

Oh no.. I completely get it now!

You can ask all my friends who have labeled me as “The Late One” now.

It is almost a guarantee that I will be late to all functions no matter how big or small.

It used to terrify me showing up late all the time when Cade was first born, but not so much anymore…I’ve now realized it just comes with the territory and I’ve tried to just accept it as it is.

No matter how prepared I am, there’s always a last minute diaper change, a potty break, a missing lovey, a snack I forgot. And while I’m running around the house getting these last minute things done, I am completely unaware of the time and probably have no idea where my phone even is to check how late I am!

So here’s my JORD watch to the rescue!

I’ve never been a big watch person, but after JORD sent me this watch, I just can’t take it off I love it so much!

It’s made of wood so it doesn’t grab and pinch my arm like a metal watch would. It’s super lightweight and I love how stylish the look of the wood is. It basically goes with anything, whether I actually decide to dress cute some days or if I had zero sleep the night before and feel like wearing a big tent shirt and a baseball cap.

Now I’m not going to say this watch is going to change my running late tendencies…because, com’on lets get real people.

Those spontaneous diaper changes aren’t going to magically go away…my son is inevitably still going to misplace his froggy lovey everywhere we go and have us tearing apart every room before we can leave the house. And I’m sure there will always be something that I forget and have to run back in the house to grab.

But it is nice having a watch on my wrist while doing all these things to check out the time, and see just how late we’re going to be…and maybe one day we’ll get on track to finally make it on time places or (dare I even say it) being early!

I want you to try their wood watches too so JORD has graciously let me host a giveaway for you!!!

The winner receives a $75 e-gift card to use towards any of their amazing watches! And I’m telling you, there are so many cute ones to choose from. Besides my own Fieldcrest Zebrawood and Maple watch, some of my other favorites are the Frankie Series Purpleheart & Plum, the Cora Series Zebrawood & Rosé, and the Cora Series Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl!

I’m also loving their men watches like the Frankie Series Ebony and Gold and the Delmar Series Zebrawood and Obsidian Carbon.

Thinking one of these would be a perfect Christmas gift for Bryan!

Especially since he’s already dropped hints about how much he loves mine and wants one too…lol Not the most subtle guy that one….

And, the BEST part of this giveaway is everybody gets to be a winner! Everyone who enters the giveaway receives a $20 gift card sent just for entering!
