So, I have been all about convenience lately. And I'm discovering more and more ways to never have to drive anywhere (haha). Groceries delivered to my door, walking to the beach, walking to the mall, and now Fiji Water delivered to my door! I hate driving, so any excuse to never have to drive again, I'm all for it! Especially driving to buy water. It's hard enough lugging groceries from the car to the house with a toddler, but water is just absolutely impossible.Read More
So we were planning to go to Santa Barbara to celebrate Jesse's mom's birthday. It's about 2.5 hours from us, so we thought we could leave early and get there to explore for the whole day. Well, being the procrastinators we are, we didn't get there till 5:30pm... So, we got to explore a little but I was super bummed we didn't get to do more. So we'll definitely be going back. Ever was in the worst mood, and screamed her head off anytime we said "picture" or brought the camera out. But I might too if someone was trying to force me to hold still when my gums hurt like crazy and all I want to do is run wild and free like my older cousins.Read More
Now that we've used Evivo, I wanted to do a follow-up post on what we think. If you didn't see my first post, you can find it here.
We still love Evivo and are so thankful for their product! Oviously, we have no way to tell if it's working unless we were to get Ever tested, but I trust this brand and their research statistics of a 99% success rate.Read More
We are the biggest procrastinators when it comes to pretty much everything. I think it's because we don't like to commit until last minute. So Jesse took the weekend off for our anniversary and it snuck up way too fast and we hadn't planned anything. So searching for hotels, everything was way too expensive.Read More
Did you know that 97% of babies in North America are born without the beneficial B. Infantis bacteria? I didn't know that either. But it's true. B. Infantis is a bacteria that is passed from mother to baby during a vaginal birth, but if the mother doesn't have it, the baby won't get it either. Over time, because of the use of anti-biotics, c-sections, etc, the B. Infantis bacteria has disappeared from many women's guts, causing a chain reaction so our babies are no longer born with it, except in rare cases.Read More
Have you ever been so hungry but you're like "ugh, I don't feel like preparing a huge meal" or "ugh, I haven't gone grocery shopping and we have nothing!" or "ugh, nothing I make tastes good!"
Well I have. Pretty much every day. So what do I do? I end up eating junk, snacking on whatever I can find, or something going out to get something that's fast and easy.
That was before Model Meals, however. Model Meals is an organic, locally sourced, paleo and whole 30 approved, meal delivery service in Southern California. You order your meals online, and they come to your door ready to pop in the oven or on the skillet. Easy. Fast. Healthy. AMAZING.
My life has been changed.
For $125, I was able to order 8 meals, 3 RX bars, a jar of ghee, and some chicken jerky.
Instead of going out to buy a meal at a restaurant that may or may not be organic/healthy, i'd rather spend the same amount or less on a meal that IS organic, that I can make in the comfort of my own home.
Seriously delicious. I will definitely be ordering from them in the future.
they have a referral program. So if you refer a friend, they get $25 off their first meal, and you get $25 off your next meal.
Here's my referral link for $25 off your first meal: https://www.talkable.com/x/LFAH3y
I love getting a little workout in during naptime on the days I'm not teaching barre, even if it's only working one are of my body, it's better than nothing. so here's a fun glute workout that I've been loving.
Remember to keep your core tight, and squeeze your glutes everytime you lift. If done right, you'll feel this in your glutes, hamstrings, inner thighs, thighs, and even abs!
Do 10 of each (lifts, pulses, squeezes).
let me know if you try it!
bra: here (on sale!)
leggings: here (use code MORGANSUA50 for 20% off at carbon38!)
Do you ever discover brands and then become completely obsessed and you know you just have to have everything (or at least one or two things) and then once you buy something you're not obsessing over it anymore?
No? Just me?Read More
What is it about the ocean that is so refreshing? It's the perfect end to any day. Busy days, slow days, hard days, good days... I can't think of any day that wouldn't end perfectly by staring at the ocean, being reminded just how small and fragile we truly are.Read More
Diapers are so very wasteful. Can you imagine a landfill full of dirty diapers? Laying there for eternity, never decomposing? Naaaasty. So we've been trying to use eco-friendly diapers so that we can make a tiny little difference in this world.Read More
The post is entitled "Palm Springs Flings" because whenever we go to Palm Springs it's always for a very short while. Like, just a day. Which gives us just enough time, usually, to swim and explore a little. We like to do Hotel Tonight to find our hotels. This trip we decided to stay at The Saguaro, which is a really popular hotel, and we quickly regretted it as we walked into our room to hear music blaring outside and a pool full of drunkards. Not exactly kid friendly. So we found another pool and all was well.Read More
Jesse had the whole weekend off, Saturday through Monday, so we got to celebrate him lots and lots. We had a date night, found a super fun park, went to LA, and took naps.Read More
I've talked quite a bit about our nursing journey on social media and my blog, because it had a really rough start. And I like to think that the next baby will be easier, but who knows, I may have a whole new slew of issues to deal with, and that's perfectly fine. I've learned that it's all worth it. In the beginning, we didn't get much help from the lactation nurses at the hospital, and I was under the impression that it would just come naturally (which I think is the case for most moms). So when it didn't come naturally I had no idea what to do. It seemed so easy for everyone else. I felt so alone and lost in the midst of trying to figure out our rhythm, that I wish I had something like the Happy Family Infant Feeding Support. They offer countless resources to help moms (and dads!) navigate their way through infant feeding, whether their baby is breastfed or formula fed, there's a Happy Mama Milk Mentor there to answer all your questions, as well as countless articles you can read. And what's even better is it's absolutely free. Thought up by moms themselves, they know the struggle and are passionate about helping other moms figure it all out together.Read More
I have always loved jumpsuits. When I was in high school I would thrift the ugliest but awesome-est vintage jumpsuits, sometimes cutting them into shorts, sometimes leaving them long. And I still have a few of them. Not to brag or anything but I did wear them before they were cool ;)
But, that's beside the point. This jumpsuit by The Bare Road is what dreams are made of. It's super comfortable and can easily be dressed down with some sneakers or up with some heels. I'm not big into heels myself, but I know it would look super cute.Read More
My little sister just graduated high school, as I stated in my "Utah in May" post. So a few days after we got home, she flew in to stay with us for almost a whole week! It was so much fun. I hardly ever get one on one time with my younger sister because the rest of my family is usually there, so it was super fun to get to know her a little better and show her all my favorite places (and try to convince her to go to art school here).Read More
I've come to the conclusion that everything Australian is better. I'm not gonna lie, I've even googled their immigration policies to see if we can move there (we can't). I don't even care if that makes me a bad American, because their brands are the best. Australian style is amazing. So effortless and low maintenance.Read More
I love finding new brands that offer a healthy alternative for my daughter. I recently discovered Sprout, and I think I'm in love. Sprout provides premium organic snacks for babies and toddlers to help parents raise healthy and adventurous eaters. Sprout has a broad range of choices including only USDA certified organic, non-GMO ingredients, with a mix of whole fruits, vegetables and grains. Sprout’s products are designed to expand baby’s palate beyond sweet and establish a love of nutritious foods early on.Read More
Prepare for yet another photo dump. We went to Utah for my younger sister's high school graduation, and it was so good being with family. Every time we go to Utah it's always for some sort of event, so we don't get to really explore or go on any adventures. But spending time with family is much more needed than adventures.Read More
Summer is my favorite season, always has been, always will be. Especially when it comes to fashion. My style is pretty basic, I love neutral colors and casual, laid-back looks. If you're like me, you'll love these looks as well.Read More
