If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that we started a fun series earlier in the year called “Favorite Finds”. It was a series of blog posts that we started to both answer your most asked questions, as well as highlight some of the things I’m currently loving. Most week’s have a theme to go with them. I’ve shared my must have basics…favorite recipes…snack prep…baby favorites and more! With such a crazy busy and FUN summer, we took a bit of a hiatus from the series, but it is coming back with a bang today, full of all things I’m loving right now!
Today is a pretty special day over here in our little world! It is my birthday! 🙂 While I’m off celebrating somewhere that is completely unknown to me as I write this, because its a birthday surprise from Joe, I thought it would be fun to share 35 super random + fun facts about me with all of you, in hopes of helping you get to know me just a little better! I’m not a big fan of the spotlight, but I tried to include things from my childhood, favorites, funny memories, and even some embarrassing ones, so you can learn a little more about me! I think a few of them will come as a complete surprise, and I hope we can still be friends! Haha ! Enjoy!
Somehow this Summer seems to have come and gone in a flash, so I’m sitting here wondering how in the world we are wrapping up August?! We are in full on Back to School mode but also wrapping up as many things as we can on our Summer Bucket List! While I’m actually pretty bummed to see my older 3 little people head back to school all day, it will be nice to get back in to a routine and have a little more structure in our day! Since we have been so busy cramming in as much fun as possible the past month, I thought it would be a great time to do an August Update!
Summer is quickly coming to an end. As crazy as it can get, I’m going to be so sad when my big people head back to school. It has been so nice to have them all around! We are soaking up every minute of this family time we can get! With Back to School season upon us, my mind is starting to think all things Back to School Traditions! I love trying to come up with a few simple things that will make this time of year extra special for my people, and remind them how much we love them! Since I know we are all trying to make our little ones special through easy fun memories, I thought I’d share some of our favorite Back to School Traditions with you today!
I don’t know about you guys, but this summer has flown by so so fast. I swear we were just getting excited for our first summer in our new home, and now we are in August!! Back to School season is upon us, which means it’s time for Back to School Shopping!! I know as parents this can be something we often dread. Kids aren’t ready for the summer fun to end, and forcing them to go shopping for clothes does not help!! Over the years I’ve figured out a few hacks to simplify our Back to School Shopping. It helps us tackle it quickly + easily with limited complaining from anyone! So I thought today I’d share them with you!
Summer is such a busy but oh so fun time for our family! We, like I’m sure most of you, try to pack in as many fun items on our Bucket List as we can! The family time is just so good!! One of our families favorite parts of summer is celebrating our sweet HUDSON on his birthday!! Somehow he is already nine and I have no idea how that happened! To help celebrate him, I thought I’d share some fun facts + my favorite things about him for his special day!
Summer is flying on by and I can’t even handle it! We are weeks away from the little people starting school again and I’m not even close to ready to lose all this extra time with them!!

If you haven’t had a chance to shop it, or just need to check again before its over, I’ve put together a list of my top 6 things I recommend snagging before the sale ends!!
One of my go-to wardrobe staples for Summer are dresses! They are a great way to beat the heat and stay comfy! I always get a little bummed when I realize Fall is coming and some of them won’t really work with the cooler weather. That has always bugged me, so I decided to do something about it! I realized with a couple simple steps or additions, you can transition dresses from summer to fall and I love the look! Today I’m sharing those simple steps so you can keep those favorite staples in your rotation a little longer!
When it comes to my beauty routine, I would say I keep things pretty simple! I am a mom of 5 and nobody has time for a lot of extra prep in the morning. I’ve shared my beauty routine + my hair routine recently here on the blog, and if you check them out you’ll see I’m all about what is going to protect + strengthen while being quick and easy! I realized I’ve never shared my top beauty tools that go along with those routines!So today I’m sharing my favorites, and bonus, they are on SALE!

I love finding the perfect pieces that make it possible to take pieces from your summer wardrobe and transition them to Fall. I’ve put together some of my top must haves to make prepping quick and easy.
