We were planning to spend the day in San Diego, but I suggested last minute that we go to Tijuana. We've been wanting to take a day trip, but hadn't had a chance. When we were talking about it, we figured out that the last time we went to Mexico was 5 years ago, before we were even married.Read More
Can it just be summer all year long?
I feel like just when I’m starting to really enjoy a season and get used to the change it comes to an end. But thankfully in California it will be 80 degrees well into September. We even had some 100 degree days in October last year so I’m not worried 😉
I finally jumped on the homemade popsicle bandwagon, and, besides Evvie asking if they were done yet every 5 minutes, they were a success. We made yummy kombucha popsicles.Read More
Summer, oh, summer. You make us do crazy things, like Denny's at 10pm and ice cream for breakfast.Read More
This week was my first official week teaching 8 classes (for the next 5 weeks) and I got pretty overwhelmed at one point. I know I've got a little too much on my plate when everything starts to fall apart haha. When I get overwhelmed with all the things I have to do I think about it constantly and don't pay attention to real life in front of me. I'm trying to learn how to balance my time and well as my brain power on one task at a time, instead of thinking about all of them all the time and getting stressed out.Read More
Another busy week for us here. Not doing anything super exciting, just living our lives. I taught 8 classes this week and I’m prettyyyy exhausted. It’s funny that my work week is equivalent to a normal person’s average workday, but they’re not usually sweating and yelling and exhausting their muscles for 8 hours straight so that’s the difference 🙈Read More
I always know it’s a good outfit when my husband doesn’t approve 😜
just kidding, he liked the outfit but just doesn’t like how these pants make my butt look, which is totally fine because I’ve alresdy got him tied down and don’t necessarily need to impress him anymore, right? Kidding, again. But in all seriousness, most of the time I just don’t really care if he doesn’t like my outfits, bonus if he does, and he definitely always has a strong opinion about them.Read More
Welcome to the first post in a new weekly series!
This series will be mostly for me, to help me remember the mundane things that happened throughout the week that didn't seem to matter at the time, but it's always those things that I look back and wish I remembered.Read More
These beach mornings are becoming a regular thing, and it makes my heart so happy. We get there early, before the crowds, and leave just as there arriving. It's quiet, peaceful, and the sweetest family time that I'll forever cherish.Read More
Warm weather has finally arrived (for now) and June gloom lasted about a week (for now) so we’re soaking up all the sun we can because California weather is quite unpredictable.Read More
Since living in California, I’ve missed having seasons. I miss the crisp air of fall, and the coziness of winter snow. But at the same time I hate being cold and I don’t think I could handle it ever again.Read More
We stumbled upon these lemon groves Easter weekend while searching for something to do. Jesse was driving, I wasn’t paying attention, and he said “oh you’re gonna love this!” He pulled into a parking lot with a playground, and above the playground was this gorgeous grove of lemon trees. He was right.Read More
This neighborhood might be my favorite. The tree lined streets, cute little houses, and all the picket fences. Some day we’ll have a little house with a white picket fence, but until then I’ll have to take pictures in front of someone else’s.Read More
Hi, can I just live here? Please?
This was our first time at the flower fields in Carlsbad, and it was everything I dreamed it would be. And the pictures Jesse got were everything I dreamed they would be, too 🙈Read More
I’m so grateful to my mom for many things, one of them being that she saved my baby clothes.
This little dress is one of the many gorgeous totally 90s pieces that my mom saved, and it looks soooo cute on Ever. She also cut up a couple of my old dresses and used pieces of them in a quilt she made for Ever. So so sweet.Read More
The Santa Ana zoo is a little pathetic, but it’s always a good outing for Ever. She gets to ride the train and see some farm animals and monkeys. And it’s fairly cheap, too, not like San Diego zoo or the LA zoo. So I guess you get what you pay for 🤷🏼♀️Read More
The trendiest place right now on instagram has to be the Malibu Pier. Which I didn't quite realize, but that's okay. I, too, was smitten by the pink hues and organic restaurants!Read More
Confession: I’m always in search of matching outfits for Ever and I. I mean, what’s the point of being a girl mom if all or outfits won’t be matching or coordinating? So when I came across Indah Designs, I was immediately obsessed. The simple, effortless, Australian style, and, of course, the overalls that came in kid size AND mommy size!Read More
I always have so much fun coming up with outfits. Imagining how I'll style certain things and then watching git come to life, either the way I imagined or not at all.
It's taken me a long time to find my own personal style, and I think I'm still kind of trying to find it. A lot of times I'll just copy other people's style, but I'm most happy when I just wear the things I like, whether or not it's trending, and even though my style cannot be categorized.
These shoes from Sandgren Clogs are one of those that you can pair with pretty much anything. They're not too dressy, and not too casual, but can be either. Perfect if you need to dress something up, or if you need to dress something down. I'm wearing the Morocco in black. I love the cross strap, different from your typical clog.Read More
AS YOU ARE.
That's Avocado's motto, and I couldn't love it more. It's one of the reasons I first fell in love with this brand. You don't have to be anything else, just come as you are, because you're perfect as you are.
These leggings feel like butter, and I wanna wear them all day long. I also thought this bra wouldn't really work because of the one shoulder, but it actually does, and it holds everything in, and it's SO comfortable.Read More
I've been planning this post for a while, and I finally feel like her room is "finished" enough to finally post it. It's been a work in progress, but so fun. I've never gotten to decorate a kids' room before, so this was new but also so exciting to me.Read More
