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...

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 not only … read more...

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. … read more...

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 it's not like this each and every week, duties change, he may cook while I may get to all the laundry that week, but at the … read more...

3 Jeans, 10 Days, Choose Wisely

Hi, my name is Tairalyn and I over pack for all vacations! If their were such thing as a OPA (over packers anonymous), no doubt this would be my opening line. The one I would say right before I burst into tears giving my irrational reasoning for packing my entire wardrobe (all 4 seasons of it) for a week long tropical vacation. Over packing is just something I come at naturally, deciding in advance what I will wear each day sounds like torture to me, it's just something I can't wrap my mind around, I like the idea of having options. This weekend our family leaves to California for 10 days and although I managed to fit me and the girls in 1 RATHER LARGE suitcase I didn't … read more...
