Hey ya’ll! Wow, we are already having temperatures of 100 degrees here! So we are trying to enjoy being outside in the mornings before it gets to 100. I’ll have to look at a few ideas to do with my son when it is super hot outside. But I usually try to keep his preschool time in the afternoon so we have things to keep him busy during the hottest part of the day. Anyway, moving on.
A few weeks ago, we were able to escape for a short ocean-side getaway. My husband and I have always felt that traveling in the car for long distances always ends up bringing us closer together. Our first anniversary trip was a week long of driving up the coast and stopping at new places each night, so any long trip (especially near the ocean) always reminds me of those days. We gathered up our things when he got off of work and we were on our way.
This was the first long road trip that our son had been on now that his car seat is forward facing, so we were curious to see how he would do. By the time we arrived to our hotel on the beach,READ MORE
Good Morning! Remember how I told you all that I am going to be more intentional with going out on dates with my hubby? Well we had our first date (in a long time) a few weeks ago and we seriously had a blast! I wanted to go again the next day, haha. I seriously do think it is so good for couples (especially if you have kids!) to have some time together, away from the house, without your precious little one. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing things together as a family, but it really is so important for you to get that one on one time with your husband.
Anyway, since Valentine’s Day is less than a month away (wait, what!?!), READ MORE
Mid December of 2015 I sat in front of my closet, frustrated because I had so much clothes but always felt like I had NOTHING to wear. That same day, I pulled everything out of my closet and my dresser and everything I had in storage and threw it all on my bed and began sorting through it. You can read my exact steps on how I created my capsule wardrobe here.
And that began my love for having a minimal capsule wardrobe. It has now been a little over a year since I created that first capsule wardrobe and I am still loving my clothes and best of all, I am not feeling overwhelmed every time I look at my closet. Each item that I chose is something that fits me well and is something that I love to wear! Creating a capsule wardrobe was the best choice I made regarding my wardrobe!READ MORE
Happy Friday! I was hoping to have this post up sooner this week, but I have been trying very hard to be more present with my son during the day… so that means not working on blog posts while he watches Curious George Christmas for the 400th time. (That show is seriously on repeat for him, haha, he can’t get enough of Curious George). We have been spending our days doing Christmas crafts, reading his three Christmas books over and over, baking, listening to Christmas music, taking pictures by the tree, and playing. I wish this month would slow down because I am seriously loving this season with my little guy. Anyway, on to todays topic!READ MORE
Happy December! I still can’t believe it’s December already. I finally decorated the house for Christmas yesterday with the help of my amazing little helper. Ha, I wish…he actually just got completely distracted by the lights on the Christmas tree. I am so excited for this holiday season! My son is READ MORE
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? I mean I knew it was coming soon, but I didn’t realize it was next week until yesterday when I was looking at my calendar, haha.
Today I am sharing a cute and comfy Thanksgiving outfit idea. READ MORE
When you first get married and are still in the “honeymoon phase” it is really easy to date your spouse. It’s just the two of you, so you can go wherever you want, whenever you want. And that’s great! There is nothing wrong with that. But then you have kids. When you have kids, it can be really hard to get out of the house for a date. You have to think about your baby now too. But getting out, just the two of you, is even more important now than ever!READ MORE
Happy Monday! I was able to get in a good nap yesterday, so I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to start my week! (Sunday’s are the only day I am able to relax enough to actually take a nap when my son naps, and I look forward to it all week! Haha). We’ve been checking off items from our fall bucket list! Last week we went to the pumpkin patch and I got some adorable pictures of my son NOT looking at the camera because he was too excited to stop for pictures! But that’s ok, I’m glad he had fun!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently did a 10 day fall wardrobe challenge. I mentioned in my last post that I was not going to be posting about my fall capsule wardrobe. I am still doing one this fall, but I was much more lenient about the typical capsule “rules”.
Anyway, I spontaneously decided to join Carolyn, from UnFancy, in her 10 day wardrobe remix challenge. Basically, you choose 10 items that you will make 10 different outfits from over the course of 10 days. I saw this and thoughtREAD MORE
