New Favorite Pair of Born Shoes!

When shoe shopping, I’m needing comfortable but cute these days!
My favorite wedges are Born shoes and I’ve shared them before because I’m obsessed!
Today I teamed up with Born to share another style of theirs
that I love— both for me and my hubby!
I won’t buy another brand when it comes to wedges for me! If you’ve been wanting shoes
that you can comfortably wear, wrangle kids in, and are still pretty, these are for you.
You can find your own pairs at Dillards!

Ben was excited to get in on the shoe action.
His shoe is the ALLAN in color, Ebano
I think he looks so cute, but I’m biased.
They are a great shoe style to have!

The style I’m wearing is the HENNING in white.
They are SO cute and comfortable! I could do a light jog in these babies. If I wanted too. haha.
Or…like if I had to chase Asher in the back of church..these are good for that. ;)
The rubber sole helps grip to the ground more than a traditional leather bottom and makes it easier to move.
I’m in a season of motherhood exhaustion. with baby bumping and four big kids to take care of,
but I still want to feel pretty and enjoy dressing up!

When I look at the sandals I see that there is a unique stitching around the toe up to the heel that is sewn by hand.
This hand sewn construction technique is unique to Born and allows the shoe to flex and move with the foot for a natural feel!
Glue isn’t what keeps the bottoms of these shoes together, but carefully placed stitches.
This means the shoe will be way more flexible, and last much longer than shoes that have been glued together.
This is why my shoes that I’ve gotten from them over the years are still holding up great!
These shoes can keep up with your  busy schedule… whether your running errands,
chasing kids or enjoying a night out with your girlfriends!
Born is the shoe you can rely on from 7AM to 9PM.
When I go to pack for trips, I always bring my Born shoes.
And when I know I’m going to be out with the kids but still want a pretty wedge…
I always go for my Born shoes!athomewithnatalie-born shoes3
Today’s post was sponsored by Born, but as always, thoughts are my own.
I genuinely love these shoes and hope you guys try them!

Easter 2017

I captured some Easter 2017 memories and finally got a chance to put together a video!
Sharing our traditions and family time from the day.
We always love looking back at the Holidays as the kids get older and remembering the fun.
Jesus is Risen! Alleluia Alleluia!
With me being nauseas/tired still, we stayed home and had some fun family time.
Played, ate a lot and went to Mass in the evening at our Parish.
Sorry it’s kind of bumpy, was trying to get each kid’s reaction but was all over the place!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter with people you love!

Blueberry Buckle- A Family Tradition Recipe!

I never properly blogged our family tradition recipe…Blueberry Buckle!
After making it for Easter morning, I snapped some photos to share.
You need this recipe in your life.
It’s incredible…and if you want you can use it as a base for a coffee cake recipe.
We went with 2 cups of blueberries but you could do one cup and be good.
My Mom passed this recipe on to me when I got married.
She would make this for Easter and Christmas Morning… amazing! 
If you like something fruity and sweet with a little crunch… this is for you!
This past time I roughly doubled the toppings because we wanted extra sweet crunch on top.
But if you want to make it how we always make it, try the recipe below!

We typically make the buckle the night before…
so it’s ready to dive into the next morning!
The smell of it takes me home!
It’s been a staple in our house all the years and I hope you try it out.
I’m sure your loved ones will be begging for it every year!
Not that you have to wait for a Holiday… It would be great for a brunch recipe!

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Sorry it’s been kind of quiet around here lately.
I’m 10 weeks and hanging in there through this rough patch of all day sickness!
Baby is the size of a strawberry… I should have done a strawberry recipe. ;)
