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 […]

Let the VLOGGING begin

After much deliberation and anticipation (on my end; sorry) we finally got the ball rolling and our YouTube Channel, Delightful Chaos, and things are on a roll! We vlogged our ENTIRE TRIP from our days at Disneyland, to California Adventure Park and even a little visit to Santa Monica Pier.  Vlog 002 //Disneyland Adventures (napping in Disneyland) Vlog 003 //California Adventure Park (flying high without telling dad) Vlog 004 //Santa Monica Pier (burgers for babies) Vlog 005 //Disney Adventures (picky eater breakthrough) We made memories that will last a lifetime, and thankfully I made a point to pull out my video camera at every moment I could so that […]

We’re in Disneyland {brb}

It’s true, we’re headed to the happiest place on earth… DISNEYLAND! I cannot even begin to tell you how important this trip is for our family, the weather here in Vancouver has been far too dreary for us and we’re aching to get away for some fun in the sun.  We will be updating our social media daily so be sure to check for us there; Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Husbands Doing Laundry {+free printable}

There is nothing hotter than a man who cleans; am I right ladies? When it comes to husbands, I know I won the lotto and I don’t even have to split the winnings (hello! sister wives). 10 years together and it’s safe to say that we’ve finally found our groove as a couple, and YES that means my husband cleans and does the laundry.  I cook all meals, make all lunches, keep the house tidy and the kids alive and on weekends he does a deep clean and any dirty laundry that still needs doing. It’s not for everyone, but it works for us. Don’t get me wrong […]

Tiny Happy Tuesday

So my girl Hillary over at Hillary with two L’s Please has started a movement, Tiny Happy Tuesday’s and I wanted to get involved; mostly because I need some tiny happies in my life, and because I love this girl! So let’s do this people, let’s share our tiny happies and have a warm tingly feel good moment together this Tuesday (one that’s not brought on by caffeine)… Tiny Happy Tuesday is a prompt to acknowledge the good, no matter how small. Acknowledging (and sharing!) tiny happies can lead to bigger happies as we train our brain to find the good.  Tiny Happy #1 // Sissy Sofia has made it very […]

Disney Details (where we’re staying and rentals)

This always seems to be a post that readers who travel, and especially those with children, request; Do you mind telling us all the details of your trip?! Do I mind? Goodness NO! I’d love too! I totally get it, it’s nice to learn of new cities to visit, places to stay, and rental companies worthy of our hard earned money. I’m not one to disapoint, so why start now right… here you have it, all our details thus far for where we’re staying, how we’re getting around and what we’ve rented to make our lives traveling with a baby much much easier. If you have any […]

Why Disneyland is MORE than magical for kids!

So this morning my news feed lit-up with tagged images and videos, connecting me to Johnny Depp. Although a fabulous connection to have (Hello! Mr. Depp) my friends and family knew I needed to hear the news. As he has been known to do, Johnny Depp surprised Disneyland guests by putting himself INSIDE the Pirates of the Caribbean ride surprising all that rode it yesterday (see it here)! What an experience eh?  WE MISSED HIM by 10 days! I mean, HE MISSED ME by 10 days (too bad for him, he’ll be losing sleep over this one tonight)! After reading the articles I was tagged in I got […]

Vlog001 (this is not a test)

WE DID IT. We finally took the jump, recorded and posted our first vlog and you can watch it here… YOU GUYS we did it! …PSSSSST this is when you chime in and tell me how proud you are of me! It’s not perfect, it’s not how I imagined our FIRST vlog going, but I couldn’t continue to wait any longer. Life was happening and moments I wan’t to capture were passing me by. No more waiting for the perfect time; a better camera will come, better audio will follow, getting better at using the editing software comes with time, I’ll learn to always shoot horizontally and better […]

Baby Products That Last (the test of time)

When it comes to baby gear I am all about LONGEVITY. Whether it’s to keep for future babies, for friends with future baby plans or to sell and recoup part of my investment back. For me I look at the company and brand, are they reputable, do they make a quality product and have they lasted the TEST OF TIME? Just off the top of my head, a few brands that come to mind when I think quality baby gear, I think Fisher-Price, Graco, Britax, Peg-Perego, Munchkin… all these are companies that have been around the (baby) block. They have lasted the test of time through not only […]

Baby Monitor Bliss

I like to sleep next to her, without having to sleep in her crib.  I like to have my eye on her at any given moment, but also giving her space. …and I can with a video baby monitor.  Why steer away from a brand you love and trust between kids, right? When we were on the hunt for a baby monitor for Stella I did search around to see what was new on the market, but at the end of the day I knew I would end up with a Levana Baby Monitor. We had one with Sofia, we bought ones for our friends who were […]
