Vroom Vroom, Liam is 3!

  How is my littlest baby 3 years old?!? Literally crying, omg. Liam AKA Chunks has been going 100mph since he was born (I'm not kidding, read his birth story here) and he hasn't slowed down since. He is my craziest kid who keeps me on my toes 24/7 lol. Even though he is the cause of a lot my stress and new white hairs, I love him so much it hurts! <3 Also, I'm gonna keep it super real with you guys. I absolutely dread birthday photo shoots and family photo shoots because it's so stressful with kids lol. But I'm "that mom" that loves to have cute pictures for memories (and insta) ...

Kindness with Madame Alexander

Scarlett has had her Madame Alexander Baby Doll for a couple weeks now and they have been inseparable! When she first laid eyes on her doll, whom she named "Rae," she was in awe with how realistic it looked. I mean, I was too! You can just tell that's it made really well. I also love that the doll had different skin tone options. The doll came with a beanie, pillow and blanket. Since the doll didn't come with too many accessories, she was really able to just play and bond with the doll itself. I did get her a stroller for it because she loves to have her doll with her around the house at all ...

Family Day Trip to Cabazon Dinosaurs

My boys have a HUGE obsession with dinosaurs (Scarlett still kinda likes them too haha) so we for sure needed to take them to Cabazon Dinosaurs! I mean we live only an hour away so there's no excuse. I didn't want this stage to pass without us taking them there. I did receive questions about it after sharing a few stories on Instagram so I thought I'd share info here :) There are 2 big dinosaurs by the parking lot that you don't need to pay to see. To enter, you do need to buy tickets! It's $13 per adult and $11 per kid. Our total for our family of 5 was $59. It does sound a little ...

Tips on Working Out While on Vacation

Yes yes, I know a true vacation means unlimited guilt-free meals and complete relaxation without working out. For those of you that have fitness goals you want to accomplish by a certain time, getting your workouts in while on a vacation is a must. I spent a week in Vegas recently and still made it a plan to get my workouts in. It was challenging but doable. Did I have cheat meals? YUP. I literally ate everything my heart desired, no regrets lol. It's all about balance right? I felt less guilty eating where cause I knew I still completed my workouts. Not gonna lie, I did miss one though. Tips ...

ROAR! Landon’s Four!

This is late but better late than never! I love doing birthday posts for my kids because it's always nice to look back and have them for memories :) This year he has been completely obsessed with dinosaurs and has even learned to say it pretty clearly this past month. It was only right to have a dinosaur themed birthday. It's funny that it's actually a common theme for 4 year olds, hence the "Roar! I'm Four!" theme that's seen everywhere lol. It's been such a special and growing year for Landon. He started school last August and he LOVED it. He got into a groove of being a little school ...

No wrinkles yet please!

I get this question a lot on IG... "what products do your recommend for anti-aging and wrinkle prevention?" It's crazy to think that I'm literally in the stage of worrying about wrinkles. I mean I still feel young?! But the slow appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reminds me that I am aging. I have nothing against wrinkles because I know they are inevitable but if there is a way I can prevent them or slow down the process, I definitely will. I have yet to get botox but I have considered it. Those are the products that I use to help prevent wrinkles: Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid ...

10 Shows To Binge Watch During the Quarantine

So I'm sure most of you have already seen some of these shows but for those that haven't... add them to your list to binge watch while you have more time at home! This is in no specific order btw :) All American (Netflix) - Leo and I watched the 2 seasons of this show in just a few days! O.M.G. Soooo good! I'm glad I didn't get into this show earlier when it was just shown on TV because I would've hated waiting a whole week to find out what happens next. Each episode is jam packed. I am pretty bummed that we now have to wait until Fall (maybe later) for Season 3. Gossip Girl ...
