I have basically been waking up every night around 3am for a while now. If you follow me on twitter (HERE),you may have seen me tweet during these times. Is this my body preparing me for night feedings once the baby arrives? I also get these crazy leg cramps. I know it's normal, but it doesn't seem normal in the middle of the night when the pain wakes you up. It's like a charlie horse on crack. I'm keeping active during the day and trying to remember to stretch, but they still sneak up on me! Needless to say, the lack of sleep and leg pain can leave you feeling sluggish the next day. Unmotivated. Slightly depressed. It's nice to have something easy and bright to wear like thisWRAP DRESS HERE. I am obsessed with wrap dresses in general (thanks to DVF), and this one shows a little leg with a slightly higher cut in the front and lower in the back. It elongates the silhouette nicely. And it's under $75. It's not maternity, so I can wear it throughout the summer. If you click on the picture OR HERE and see the model wearing the dress, it looks so effortlessly chic on her. Seriously thinking of wearing this to my shower Saturday and calling it a day. I'll pair it with these heels HERE on salethat I'm wearing in the picture below (and bring THIS pair of flatsthat have been my go-to so far).
And I feel girlie and alive and ready to face the day. What are your tips for feeling and looking fresh? I hear this only gets harder, not easier, with kids. Especially newborns. Do you have your own tricks to share? I know it's always good to remember gratitude. Grateful people are joyful people.
Surrounded by overachievers today! Never a dull moment with @Erinoprea & @Dr_oz.

First day of kindergarten for Huck... We're proud of this kiddo and cheering for him! Especially Hayden!! What a great big brother! 😘⭐️ Good luck to all the families out there starting school this week. #imabigkidnow #brothers #huckandhayden #firstdayofkindergarten 📸: @day.artist / @ographr
We moved in this house a little bit ago and life has been hectic. Something pretty special happened when our @HelloFresh box arrived…we finally did what we have been wanting to do since we first moved in…use our kitchen to cook as a family (or in Hayden’s case, play with the box) and sit down to eat together. @HelloFresh makes us feel like gourmet cooks! (Have you checked out instastory?) Follow the very easy recipes and you can be, too….Plus, I love knowing every single ingredient going into my meal and the food I feed our children. This is easy, fun and informative (Huck loves it) #thatsBIG! Can’t wait for the next box. Check them out at hellofresh.com and use my code "AshleyJones" for $30 off your first week #hellofreshpics #hfpartner #ad #getcooking
