FRIDAY FINDS | BOO-TASTIC EDIT

Halloween is almost upon us and I can’t wait. Last year was fun as a family of 4 but the babes didn’t really get what was going on and were even a tad worried when they saw others in costume … So far this year, they’ve been amazed at all the Halloween decor in the stores, just the other day at Target, they laughed so hard when I put on a scary mask. We have two costume parties this…

FALL FAMILY BUCKETLIST

This past weekend we journeyed up to a favorite little fall mountain town near San Diego, Julian. It’s best known for it’s apple pies and tasty wineries and that was our plan until the apple orchard closed early thanks to the drought. We headed into town to explore but saw a cute little pumpkin patch on the side of the road and decided to stop by. Much to our surprise, they had a cute little petting zoo, pumpkins on…

TWIN TALK | LIFE WITH TWINS AT 20 MONTHS | THOUGHTS BY B.COM

TWIN TALK | 20 MONTH UPDATE

Ah, I’m so behind with these updates… I just noticed our last monthly update was at 17 months (oops) and so much has changed since then. It’s funny how life can get a hold of you… People are constantly asking me how old the babes are and sometimes I have to sit there and count the months on my fingers before I can answer. So yes, they are 20 months old now. That sounds crazy to say!

Yesterday, the twins…

MOMS TAKE PALM SPRINGS | A GUIDE

This past weekend, a few of my mama friends and I road tripped to Palm Springs. We stayed at a quintessential mid century modern Palm Springs style home and did a few of the “touristy” musts. Even though it’s just a little over 2 hours away from San Diego, the vibe of the city feels like you’ve traveled back in time. The perfect weekend getaway!

With R being away for an entire month, I was feeling really rundown and overloaded….

TODDLERTRANSITION-8

FRIDAY FINDS | TODDLER TRANSITION

Right before we headed to Texas for 10 days, we discovered that Easton is part monkey as he mastered the art of climbing out of his crib AND back in… this brought on the transition to the toddler room much sooner than I had anticipated. Much to my surprise, he LOVES his new bed and all the updates I’ve been making to their space.

I don’t have any “good” sleep tips yet because we’re only 1 week into the transition,…

BOWS BOWS BOWS | GIVEAWAY

I’ve had a slight bow addiction ever since Ev was born and am always on the hunt for new ones! Ev went through a phase of taking them off so we had to stop wearing them for a while and I was so sad. I recently started putting head band bows back on to see if she would keep them on and much to my surprise, she did great. Easton is now the problem ? he’s so interested in…
