Traveling with kids can be tricky but the @marriotthotels Desert Spring Villas are the best family vacation spot. Baby is asleep in the bedroom and we are hanging out in the living/kitchen/dining room.
Game on the big screen, big nugget on her ipad and maybe a cocktail or two for the adults. .

Ever since I posted on the blog about our trip to Disneyland a few weeks ago, this has been bothering me. I talk about my Dad all the time, probably because he’s gone and we were really close. But I found this picture and it struck me that for every grandiose plan that my Dad had to make our childhood picture perfect - my Mom was the one who really made it happen. And she got little to no credit for it. My Dad was an amazing father but he had his faults. Just like anyone else. My Mom though, she’s the saint. The most caring, loyal and thoughtful person I know and the true orchestrator of that picture perfect childhood.
And no one, I mean no one, could rock a babushka like Nance. .

When I decided that I wanted to start blogging, I started following a bunch of other “Mom bloggers”. After following their insta stories and blog posts, I started to have doubts. My life isn’t curated. I don’t have the time or desire to always be put together. I don’t want to spend a day taking pictures of myself or talking about makeup sales. I was watching all these Insta stories and found myself getting increasingly annoyed. I started to think maybe this isn’t for me.

My mother in law introduced me to her cousin who has a successful blog and she gave me some great advice and feedback. Constructive criticism on my site and things she wished she had known when she started. It was motivating. I realized that I don’t have to be them. That the whole point of this endeavor was to hone my voice, stay creative and have fun while I take my professional sabbatical and stay home with my girls.

So wherever this train takes me, as long as I stay authentic, I will arrive where I am meant to be. .

Does your kid want to be a pine cone for Halloween too? No, just mine?

Well, I finally finished Big Nuggets costume this week. I'm so happy with how it turned out and she is too. Love this kiddo's imagination. I hope she never loses the courage to be original.
Full DIY tutorial and pictures on the blog today - just in case your kids change their mind. Link in profile. .

I’ve lived in San Diego for over 8 years. I have gotten used to not having four seasons. No snow? Sure. Endless summer? Ok! But one thing I will never ever get used to is wearing sunscreen and tank tops to the pumpkin patch. .

Have you ever had one of those moments where you suddenly see your baby as a kid? 😦

Time just needs to pump it’s breaks. *

We had another rough night last night. Sick kids. Little sleep. As I got up this morning I decided not to let my exhaustion get the best of our morning. Instead of snapping at our Big Nugget when she wouldn’t let me brush her hair, we made a game out of it. Hair brushing is much more tolerable after some giggles.
I realized that my attitude can change the entire course of the day for the whole family and I know that lately I’ve let it get the best of me. So today I choose to go in a positive direction, with coffee....lots and lots of coffee. Happy Friday friends!

I finally got the time to finish my post about our Disney trip. So much to share and hard to not bombard you with a million pictures! I loved comparing this trip to pictures of my own Disney trip when I was the same age as my oldest. Is that even a cohesive sentence? It’s been a long week but check out the post. Link in bio. *

With all the toys and books and art and space we have in our house, these two are most entertained by a vintage jack-in-the-box and a bowl of water. Probably means I’m due for a good you room purge. *

Midway through my 6-week health transformation challenge, I’m down 3 pounds and 1% body fat. Exactly halfway to all of my goals for the challenge. I’ve found it easy to add in the extra workouts, borrowing some mornings away from my husband’s workout schedule, but nutrition has been more of a challenge. Not because of bad eating habits, but cutting carbs and calories really hurt my milk supply. So I’m still working to find the right balance so that I meet my goals and also meet the needs of my 8 month old tank of a baby.
This sheet pan chicken is going in the oven tonight. Love the simplicity of this recipe. Chicken cubes, veggies to fill the rest of the sheet, toss with some Avo Oil and seasoning. Roast for 15 min @ 500. Nom nom nom. I’ll add some brown rice and quinoa sprinkled with flax to get some extra calories and milk making goodies. *

Going through our Disneyland pictures. ❤️ It was worth all the exhaustion. Every single ounce of it.

Reflecting on a magical trip to @disneyland and recovering from an early morning back at @thefitmill. I walked over 20k steps a day, most baby wearing, but it still felt good to be back in the gym. Even if I was exhausted. Have to make up for those Mickey Mouse beignets!!!! Pictures and a recap of what I learned while traveling with an infant and preschooler coming to the blog soon! *

She's beyond excited to get to @disneyland tomorrow. She's been practicing packing her new suitcase for a week and finally got to do the real thing. I had her approve all outfits and back ups so that she wasn't surprised while we were at the @disneylandresortandhotel, hoping to avoid any meltdowns. Any other last minute advice??? *

Little Nugget is 8 months old today. Crawling, babbling and hell bent on getting up these stairs. She's the most affectionate baby I've ever met and each day we all fall more and more in love with her. 😍 *

C asked to make cards for some dear friends who are sad. Some days I think maybe we aren't totally screwing up this whole parenting gig. 😍 *

"And though she be but little, she is fierce." This girl handled a painful run in with Hand Foot Mouth like a champ. I wrote about it on the blog today. Check it out, link in profile. *
