• Surviving Summer at Home with Kids – Toddler Activities and Daily Routine Included!

    Heyyy, y’all! I’ve been home for summer with the kids and WHEW! Obviously, I parent my kids every single day no matter how much time I spend at home with them BUT it’s a sh*t ton of work to actively engage them all day. I’m pretty sure that most days it’s 200% more work than my 8-4 job. I set myself up for success this summer with a daily routine and toddler activities for at home. Some activities take more effort, some are easy-peezy, some are messy – ALL create memories and keep those little minds curious. Daily Routine for Summer This is a LOOSE schedule. Actually, I wouldn’t even…

  • Weekend on the Bay and in Galveston

    Hi, y’all! I hope you had an amazing weekend! We spent the weekend with friends on the bay and it was amazing to hang out by the water with a Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® (literally my new favorite summer beer) in my hand. My Summersalt swimsuit arrived just in time for the weekend and it was so cute. I was nervous about the one-strap style since that doesn’t always work for a larger chest and I give it an 8/10 after wearing it all day. The swimsuit doesn’t get a perfect score because I had to readjust multiple times… and it also came down a bit when I dove into the…

    An Exhaustive Father’s Day Gift Guide

    Hi, y’all! Father’s Day is in just over 10 days. That means it’s time to order a gift ASAP.

I’ve looked through different gift guides, Bryan’s closet and things I gifted him in the past to make this long list of ideas. HOPEFULLY IT HELPS YOU OUT A BIT! Below is the 2022 Father’s Day Gift Guide for your husband, dad, uncle, gramps or any other guy that’s been especially supportive to you. Happy shopping, y’all! THE 2022 FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE…

  • PAW PATROL PARTY // Happy 3rd Birthday, Emmett!!

    Hi, y’all! Last week our girl turned THREE and we got to celebrate her this weekend with friends and family. This birthday has been extra special because it’s the first birthday that she has been SUPER aware of. SERIOUSLY. She has been talking about her birthday since February! I have no idea where she is learning to be a diva about her birthday hahaha! This was not our first rodeo for at-home birthday parties and every one has been pretty simple and similar by decorating with a balloon garland, creating a spread with food that’s both easy to eat and kid-friendly, stocking up the beer and wine, throwing on some…

  • Happy New Year!

    Hey, y’all, heeey! Happy New Year! I hope you had the best time with your family and friends over the holiday break. I was off for two whole weeks and just stayed home with the babies. No daycare. No traveling. Just us hanging out and recharging – it was glorious, chaotic, a headache some days and the best thing ever all wrapped into one. My parents visited with us and we still have a couple more Christmases to go with Bryan’s side. This time of the year is truly the best. I mean don’t get me wrong, it makes my head spin but I love the festive fellowship that comes…

  • Happy 2nd Birthday, Emmett!

    Emmett’s Cream and Peach Plaid Jumpsuit | Emmett’s Blue Birthday Dress | Emmett’s Nikes RAISING KIDS IS BITTERSWEET WACKADOO, EMMETT IS 2!! This weekend we got to celebrate our sweet baby girl, Emmett June, with a Bluey birthday party! *cue mixed emotions* I’m so happy to celebrate her. That’s obvious – especially since she grew from a helpless newborn to wannabe-independent toddler before my eyes. I’ve been there for the firsts – crawling, standing, squatting, standing followed by squatting followed by standing, walking, jibber-jabbering, running, talking and so many more. Watching a child grow is an amazing thing and the biggest blessing I’ve experienced. On the other hand though, this…

  • Weekend Getaway in Round Top, TX

    WHAT I PACKED Hi, y’all! A couple weekends ago Bryan and I drove to Round Top, TX for a much needed weekend getaway. I won a 2-night stay for myself and a guest from a giveaway hosted by Katy Moms’ Network and The Frenchie… back in NOVEMBER! Y’all, I was so damn excited and knew that my future self would need this 😉 We took the scenic drive and loved it. There are a few small towns, a ton of ranches and lots of animals in between here and there. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the scenic route if you’re not on a time crunch! WHERE WE STAYED We pulled into the…
