We both played hookie yesterday. It was Hadley’s birthday so I let her take the day off from school. We had a nice lunch, did ceramic painting, and got lots of one-on-one time together. I asked Hadley what’s her wish for her birthday... her answer was she wished she has a TV in her room. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #5goingon15 #wheredidmybabygo #momlife

Noodles for din din last night at the new hot spot @marugame_udon 🍜😋 So excited to finally have a fast-casual Asian eats around here that’s tasty, authentic, clean, friendly, and not 💸. Everything on the menu is under $10 and I love their tempura and musubi bar! I asked Hayden and Hadley to rate this place from 1-5, see their answers on the last slide 💁🏻‍♀️ #mediapreview #sstlocalgem #sf #parkside #stonestown #marugameudon #asian #asianeats #sfeats

What a difference 3 years make. They are so grown now. 😭 Every time I see their old pictures, it makes me want to add another one in the family. (Thanks Facebook.😏) So every now and then, I still question whether or not we should go for a third. My brain says no, my age says no (when I’m binging on Netflix I also say no 😂)... but my heart says yes. Obviously we’re still undecided, and we’ll be totally happy as a family of 4. But I’m just curious if this feeling will ever go away? How do you know when you feel like your family is complete? Is that a feeling you just get? Is this what a soon-to-be 40 year old ask herself? #randomthoughts #momlife #kids #family

Goal for 2018 - more date nights! // I sooooo miss exploring and dining out with the hubby. I’m hoping we can fit more of that in this year. Plus, I miss dressing up, putting makeup on and feeling like our old selves again. It feels good to relive the days when it was just the two of us. 💏 (Though by next morning, we miss our kids like crazy lol.) #sstlocalgem #sf #hayes #datenight @theriddlersf

Best place to kill time when you got a 45 minutes wait at Outerlands. My little 📚🐛 enjoying the space at @blackbirdbooksf. #sstlocalgem #sf #outersunset

Tonight, we are hosting our 3rd party of the week. I’ve never hosted so many gatherings in my life, and now that we’re in our new home, we are having parties back to back to back! We held a party for George’s co-workers, a party for my high school friends, and tonight a pajama party for my cousins, nephews and nieces. Never felt so blessed in my life — and for chic party supplies so I don’t have to do dishes 😂. Beautiful wreath by @matildasmagnolias. (TY @rubypress!)

I just wanna put it out there that @harlowandgrey had dreamt up of doing a purple line even before Pantone called it the color of the year.😉 A sneak peek of our new #AmeythstCollection for #SS18. Designed by @gloriawdesign. I’m normally not a purple fan but this is changing my mind.🔮🙋🏻‍♀️💅🏻💜
Celebrated another year of #coolmomsclubsf holiday party last night! ❤️ It all started 5 years ago when @katiehintzzambrano and I exchanged emails about baby stuff and how we were both not into the idea of joining “moms group”, and then ironically started our own private moms group - 😂 💁🏻‍♀️ Cool Moms Club. There were only a few of us then. It now has 400+ members (!) // It has been so rewarding to see connections and friendships made here and how much this club has grown since. It also helps when your wing-mama is Katie HZ of @mothermag and @beingoodcompany - possibly one of the coolest mother/connector/community builder/writer/business owner/friend I know. // So very fortunate to have started this support group with Katie and have a space for creative-moms to connect, share stories and trusty (baby and non-baby related) resources. Not to mention - sharing the latest cool labels and trends is pretty awesome (like a super-chic-vegan-leather-purse-made-in-Italy that kind of cool.) // I wish I could take credit for last night’s party but I probably did the bare minimal. Major THANKS to CMs @jessicaengelman @katekittredge_ @stylenik for coordinating all the help and details, @littlefund for letting us host, @chairsandcups @harlowandgrey for tablescape and partyware set-up, @lilahbeauty for the beauty touch-up station, and @shinola for donating a very generous gift up for raffle! Money raised will be used towards non-profit Compass Family Service’s “Adopt-A-Family” program to provide holiday gifts for homeless and at-risk families. (TYSM for coordinating, Jessica!!) And um, I didn’t even get to the gift bags yet, but I think you get the idea. 💥💥💥

This may be the last year that Hayden thinks Santa is real, so I’m hanging on to these “magical” moments for as long as I can. 😭 As for Hadley, she’s still scared of Santa so no picture for her this year. But the Santa at @stanfordshop was so nice that he came out of his chair to meet her. And that made her super happy! More on our Santa experience on da blog + find out how you can skip the line this year! Link in bio. #foundatsimon #spon #stanfordshoppingcenter #paloalto #holidays #xmas #family #kids #🎅🏻 #momlife
My home was filled with so much love over the weekend from my housewarming party. ❤️ Now that we have the space, we LOVE having family and friends over! And thanks to @matildasmagnolias, I was able get these beautiful flowers delivered to my door the day before my party. And believe it or not, I arranged it myself! (with a lil’ cheat sheet by @matildasmagnolias, 😜). The ones here are called #alaskanpeonies. It totally saved me a trip to the flower mart and I was still able to get specialty flowers sourced from local farms. Def keeping this resource on my list now that I plan to host more parties and gatherings. 🌸🌸🌸 #homesweethome #sstrenodiary

Who would’ve known that our home buying journey would land us on the cover of @sfmagazine and in a 12-page real estate story! // If we count from the beginning, it took us nearly 7 years to (sorta) save enough money to buy a home in SF, all the while living in a dorm sized, rent control apt with two kids in order to compete in this crazy SF/Bay Area market. There were lots of disappointments and discouragements along the way, but it only made owning our new home now THAT MUCH SWEETER! We are so grateful for how things have turned out for us. And for the record, our seller had turned down an all-cash buyer, so people, there is HOPE! (Oh, and don’t forget to ask your kids to write a letter to the sellers. It’s called teamwork. 😜) // Thank you @erinfeher for writing our story and @tim_fong for being our super agent! Don’t be surprised if you see our faces at your local grocery stands. #proudhomeowners #sfmag #therealestateissue
Beautiful delivery by @nataliebdesigns and @guittardchocolate! Thank you so much for the sweet surprise, ladies!! Might just have to open a bar of 🍫 to go with my ☕️this morning. #thebest #sundays
Got any weekend plans? My party biz @harlowandgrey is hosting a Pop-Up this Sat. at @westelm_bayst Emeryville, from 10a-5p! Come visit me and my team, and stock up on holiday partyware & decor! // This setting is a throwback to a girls brunch H&G did two months ago in collab w/ @ruemagazine x @katiedeanjewelry at the @westelm store - which you can easily put together for a pretty Friendsgiving brunch or dinner. Hope to see you this weekend! 👋 #HGpartywell #mywestelm #holidays #harlowandgrey #shopping #popup #sf #bayarea #eastbay #oakland #emeryville
Things that keep me going on a Tuesday. Plus, a new meditation that I’ve just started practicing. They say it takes 6 weeks to form a habit, so that’s what I’ve been working on.
