The Magic of Nature’s Care {Miracle-Gro}

We're no strangers to getting dirty in this house, we've been playing in the dirt and caring for our own garden religiously for the last 4 years, and with each passing year Sofia gets more involved, and exponentially dirtier.  With how long and drawn out our Winter was this year we were unable to start the garden outside when we normally do, YOU GUYS we still had a massive amount of snow on the ground at the end of February! It was far too cold outside to start our little seedlings, poor things would've never made it. This year, for the first time, we started our seeds inside. Using cleaned out eggshells and carefully chosen soil and plant food, Sofia and I did … read more...

Bringing the Spa Home {Signature Mobile Spa}

Do something today that your future self with thank you for Treating yourself is something mother's tend to let go to the waist-side. It's not that they don't think about it, it's just not a priority. However what I have learnt over the 6 years of motherhood is if you don't take care of yourself you just can't expect yourself to be able to care for others.  I mean you CAN, but it's not pretty (or fair) to that body that's done so much for you already. Priorities have changed, expenses have increased (hello diapers and dance class) and overall you just don't have the time anymore. Just like every other mama out there, I wear myself thin; I do it, I know I do it, and … read more...

Best Father’s Day Gifts {are free}

  It's going to take you a little more time than say building him a new BBQ or cleaning up after an afternoon of daddy DIY's but if you ask Sammy, he will tell you this is by far his most cherished Father's Day Gifts he's ever recieved.  I had this wild plan in my head to make Sammy a video with Sofia for Father's Day, but I had to wait for the perfect moment in time. That moment that she started to talk, make decisions of her own (not necessarily good ones) and had her own opinions (oh... the opinions!). Sofia was 3 and it was only a few weeks until Father's Day, I'd wait for Sammy to leave for work and I would set Sofia up with her breakfast and ask a … read more...

Grab your Sunnies! {SmartBuyGlasses}

When it comes to sunglasses Sammy and I have always been ones to go for quality over quantity; naturally we gravitate towards sunglasses that are classic and timeless vs trendy and seasonal, so we're okay with the investment. Even though we know in advance we will have to pay a little more, we will still make an evening of it and research the best deals online. Quite possibly my favorite feature on the SmartBuyGlasses website is their VIRTUAL TRY ON; and it's not what you think. Throw away what you once knew of testing glasses or sunglasses on an uploaded photo of yourself, they've taken this one step further. Think Snapchat filters or Instastories when you test out your … read more...

We caught a HUGE tadpole {vlog}

We did it, WE VLOGGED AGAIN! After what feels like a GIGANTIC break since our last vlog (really only a week) I'm feeling good about this vlog. We got hit pretty hard with a virus since getting back from holidays and really have been just struggling to get through life without tears. BUT that's over, back to life again... We headed out to catch Tadpoles, and learnt a very good lesson which kept us out of jail. Thank you PetSmart lady for strongly advising us not to take home said Tadpole.

The Best of Our California Vacation

I wanted to make sure I got something out to you all RIGHT AWAY (because who likes waiting?). I went through the 1,089 pictures (not at all overboard) and chose 30 fun shots taken from the 10 days away that should give you a good idea of how the trip went overall. We visited Disneyland, we tackled California Adventure, we outlet shopped, made our way to Santa Monica Pier, had a few pool days and even a down day (or two). I think we made the most of the California sun and are looking forward to the day that we can return.  I've made a few notes on the images that I think may bring up some questions from you all however if I have missed anything, please don;t … read more...
