I showed my bug-out-bag aka 72 hour emergency kit on my Instagram stories a while back and a bunch of you wanted to know what was in it. Well, I FINALLY got around to writing it up. It’s kind of a beast though, just warning you! In my defense, it’s pretty thorough. I mean, I researched this for awhile. Please, do yourself a favor and save time, by using this post instead 😉[Read more…] about 72 Hour Emergency Backpack
At the tail end of summer, we decided to fly down to Los Angeles for a week and take a road trip down the coast. We hadn’t planned any major traveling this summer so it was nice to getaway and plan some summer fun! And I’m finally sharing the trip with you guys – I know a bunch of you wanted to know our itinerary and where we visited![Read more…] about Southern California Road Trip to Universal Studios with GetAround
Remember this cute ice cream party we had at the end of the school year? My kids still talk about it…The Flower Home collection fit the bright & cheerful vibe perfectly. So when I heard that there is a newly released Flower Kids collection, I just knew I’d have to get some fun, new accessories for my kids’ room. The bright colors, pom poms and rainbows do not disappoint![Read more…] about Favorites from Flower Kids by Drew Barrymore

We decided to fly down to Southern California last week for our summer vacation and of course, if I’m in SoCal, it’s pretty much a given that I’m going to Disneyland! And with the recent opening of Galaxy’s Edge, there was no chance we’d miss out on that!
I was pretty concerned that the park would be ridiculously crowded, especially with Galaxy’s Edge just newly-opened, because July is the peak of the summer. But luckily the park wasn’t as busy as predicted. In fact out of all the times we’ve visited recently (trips in March, May and June) last week’s visit was probably the least crowded! I’d really recommend taking a last minute trip to Disneyland if you can swing it this summer!
We had a packed itinerary consisting of a road trip and some serious beach time, so we only had one day to spend with Disney (usually we spend at least 3 days there). So I went into full on research and planning-mode, determined to fit everything we needed into that one day. At the top of the list? Galaxy’s Edge![Read more…] about Disneyland and Galaxy’s Edge in 1 day
This school year really passed by fast this year. I’m still reeling, but really looking forward to lazy days and sunshine! For Arden and Conrad, the countdown is on. We only have one more week left!
I always like to celebrate with the kids by taking them to ice cream on the last day of school. I thought it would be fun to host an ice cream (and other sweets) social with school friends at our house this year.[Read more…] about School’s Out, Let’s Celebrate!
A few weeks ago during spring break, we decided to do a very stereotypical thing for spring break…We went to Florida! Where did we go in Florida? No, not Disney World, no, not Miami, no, not Ft. Lauderdale. We went to Rosemary Beach. Now you may have that blank look that most of our friends gave us when announcing our destination. Or if you’re from the Mid-West or the South you’ll know EXACTLY where. Rosemary Beach is a lesser known beach destination on the gulf coast (commonly referred to as the Emerald Coast) or inner coast of Florida. There’s a tiny little strip of a highway called 30A rolling through a bunch of gorgeous little beach towns each with their own distinct personality. We mostly spent our time in Rosemary beach and it’s gorgeous cousin, Alys Beach, just a hop, skip and a bike ride down 30A.[Read more…] about 36 Hours | Rosemary Beach Florida
I tend to veer away from getting too commercialized when it comes to Easter baskets. Gone is yearly the tradition of getting a bright, new (very plastic) Easter basket filled with fake, plastic green grass and fake, plastic, disposable eggs. I cringe just thinking about how wasteful that all was! I like to purchase items that kids will use over and over again or that I can repurpose.[Read more…] about Gift Guide | Easter Basket Favorites with World Market
Fall is my favorite season and it enjoy it to the fullest, I like to create a bucket list of things to do. Most of the items can be done for little to no dolla-dolla bills and you will be spending lots of time with your friends and family. Just how I like it! I started compiling a list of my favorite fall activities after realizing how successful our holiday advent calendar was during December. I figured why not priorities some fun fall activities as well?!
