This + That

I turned 30 last October and as my gift Dominic promised me a fancy day in Seattle. Together we chose to go see King and I since it was coming up at the Paramount and it did not disappoint! Well, for me at least, Dominic wasn’t really familiar with the storyline (which is partially true!) and […]

Breastfeeding Essentials Guide

My mama resume boasts 5 years of breastfeeding. FIVE. YEARS. There was a break when I was pregnant with Max and then a few weeks between Max weaning and Reid being born. So, for the most part, this whole nourishing another person with my body has been a full time gig for a long time. […]

There’s no better way to begin my lazy year than with a round up of all the fantastic things other fine folk are up to, right? Technically, I’m not being lazy AT ALL. Our house has a closing date, we’re packing to move, I’m still homeschooling Jem, and juggling a work from home schedule. Every […]

  With a new baby in 2016 I didn’t quite finish my entire book list from last January, but hey, can you blame me? New babes are busy and unpredictable! I did LOVE many of the books from my 2016 list so if you’re looking for recommendations, definitely check out this list! I’d say my […]

Last week we had snow. The first snow Jemma and Max really remember! It took almost a half hour to get them bundled up and within 10 minutes or so Max was telling me it was too cold. That boy! Mimi swooped in and distracted him with plans to make a trio of little snowmen while Reid and […]

Check out the first round here! Lillian & Co. Bracelets — Um, hello! Aren’t these the most classy chic bracelets you ever did see? Such a subtle nod to Disney phrases and something you can easily wear to Disneyland and beyond. Anthology Candles — So these aren’t technically an accessory, but I’m going to say […]

Holiday Gift Guide For Kids

Christmas shopping catalogs have been arriving left and right and the other week I let the kids create a cut and glue Christmas wish list as a simple craft. It was pretty fun seeing what they chose and hearing their reasoning. The stuff that catches kids eyes, I tell ya! Jemma had some odd choices glued to her […]

Holiday Gift Guide For Mamas

gift-guide-for-mamas

Ever since the want/need/wear/read philosophy for gift giving was born, I’ve tried to follow suite. It just makes sense! Especially for kids (and that gift guide is coming later this week!). Want/need/wear/read (with an extra category of “do” for experiences!) works well for mamas too, and in my case, just goes to show that I’m […]

The Star of Daddy’s Christmas Stocking

Raise your hand if your husband is the hardest person to buy gifts for. That’s me … raising both hands. Because, ya’ll, Dominic is THE hardest person to shop for. Christmas makes me cringe and birthdays and anniversaries aren’t any easier. And, I’m totally a gift giving person! I love giving gifts! He’s just a […]

Bring On the Milestones, Baby!

Reid is such a good baby. The kind that gives you baby fever much too early. He’s easy going and happy go lucky. Always smiling and quite the little crawler … and one-handed balancing stander as of late! He’s a good little sleeper, comparatively to his big siblings at least, and this boy can gobble down a […]
