As a mom of 5, it’s rare that I come across something new in the parenting world – especially in the baby years. I’ve been to this rodeo five times over now, so coming across something new with Harper or Houston that I haven’t already experienced with one of the others is rare. I was thrown for a loop when both Houston + Harper came along with such sensitive skin. Since their skin was so sensitive I wasn’t willing to compromise on whatever touched it. After searching and finding the things that worked best for us, I’m sharing what I’m loving most for my babies and how I care for their sensitive skin.
Lately I’ve been getting so many questions on different details of my daily beauty routine. I thought it would be nice to finally get it all down in one easy to refer back to place. Sticking to and actually even having this whole routine has not always been the case. When we moved to Utah + Joe started his job, I felt like we were finally in a place financially where I could invest in really taking care of my skin. I haven’t always used these products, and know what its like to be in a place where drugstore products is what you can afford. So I’ve included a few on a lower budget that I loved using too!
Friday is here which means it’s time for another round of favorite finds! If you have been following along lately, you saw that Joe + I just celebrated our 14th Anniversary in sunny Arizona! It was honestly just what we both needed! A few days of sleeping in, zero schedule, and lots of yummy food! I shared a lot of the fun details over on my Instagram Stories, but had so many requests to put everything in one spot, so for today’s Favorite Finds I’m sharing allll of our Arizona Favorites!
Easter is just about here and it has me so excited! It always means Spring is just about here and good weather is coming! Like any holiday, I try to incorporate some fun Easter traditions to make it special for my little people! Since I love hearing what you guys do to celebrate, I thought I’d share some of our favorites, as well as some new ones we are thinking about starting this year!
Spring is in the air and it has me so excited! Finally seeing the sun + the trees start to bloom again is my favorite time of year! I’m learning the hard way that Northern Utah weather is kind of a tease with spring one day and snow the next, but we have high hopes spring will come for real soon! With the weather changing, so are our wardrobes! Since Easter is usually one of the first signs and celebrations of spring, Spring Dresses are usually the first thing we think about! Normally I like to do a roundup of what I’m loving for myself, but since I’ve been getting a lot of requests for kids options too, I thought I’d switch things up and do a roundup of favorite Spring Dresses for the Family!
Happy Weekend! I hope you all had a great week! It’s time for another weekly update + for us it was a fun one! So Joe + I spent the first half of it celebrating our 14th Anniversary in sunny Arizona! It was honestly the first time we have gone on vacation together and I didn’t spend the entire time just thinking about our little people, so I’m making progress! Haha mom problems! But it was seriously the exact trip we needed! The weather was perfect and we had zero plans. We did a lot of eating…sitting by the pool…movie watching…and eating again. It was so great to just be together so we could just talk without any interruptions and relax. If you wanna know a little more of the random about us, head to this post because I shared 10 fun things you might not know!
Ever since I mentioned that Joe + I are from St George, I have been FLOODED with requests to share all of our favorites! It is seriously the best little place to escape to and enjoy the sun, especially if you are a few hours away in Northern Utah! It’s safe to say we are experts + definitely have some tried and true favorites! Since we (well not just joe + the boys) are visiting this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share some with you for today’s Favorite Finds!
Today we are continuing our home tour, and taking you inside the other half of my favorite area in the house, the Family Room! Our little family spends so much time together in this space. I wanted to share all the details that went into designing it and how we made it feel like home!
As I mentioned in our kitchen reveal, I really consider this main room as the heart of our home. Most importantly I wanted it to feel comfortable and welcoming. I wanted it to be a place where my people wanted to come together and just talk about their days. Since it is a statement area of our home, I also wanted it to reflect our modern + unique design aesthetic. So I took this wish list and went straight to the master mind, Ashley, and together we came up with a space I love!!
Today we are celebrating our 14 year Anniversary!! I seriously can’t even believe its already been 14 years! I swear we were just young and in love! haha! In honor of our anniversary, I thought it would be fun to tell you more about us, so today I’m sharing 10 fun things you may not know about Joe + I!
1. We’ve known each other for 22 YEARS!! … Yes you read that right!! 22 YEARS! We met when we were 12 years old!! Haha such babies but we’ve pretty much been best friends ever since! I shared more of the details as well as a few funny stories over in this post on Valentine’s Day.
Today’s weekly update is coming at you from SUNNY Arizona, so you can imagine its a happy one!! Joe and I escaped to celebrate our 14 Year Anniversary so we are in heaven! We can’t wait to have a few days of sleeping in, with no schedule, as well as not having to share our food with anyone! Haha! So far the only thing on our agenda is a couples massage + dinner over at Omni Scottsdale Resort + Spa at Montelucia. The pictures look gorgeous, especially the spa! This girl needs some pampering so we can’t wait! Haha! Really, our schedules are so crazy, so any time I can get with Joe is my favorite!
