#ad Shane is currently studying for his next belt in taekwondo and he’s so nervous about it! The test is next week and while I know he has it in the bag, he’s not so sure. I love that with the new writable wrapper on his favorite lunchbox addition, Rice Krispies Treats, I can remind him even when we’re apart that I believe in him! What would you write on a Rice Krispies Treat for your child’s lunch? @KelloggsUS #SoMuchToLove #RKT

These boys have a new favorite iPad game! They are loving the new Osmo Hot Wheels Mindracers game. It’s a fun racing game that requires strategy, timing, and of course- some really cool Hot Wheels cars. They play it together but when Shane’s at school, Zac and I will play together- or he plays against a robot! I love watching them think of the best piece to use next and try to out-counterattack each other! It would make an awesome holiday gift too. Have your kids discovered any cool new toys lately? #PlayOsmo @playosmo #ad 🏎

Boys and their toys! Justin had a blast the other day teaching the boys how to use their new Hot Wheels Ballistik Racer Vehicle! It’s all-terrain, can drive upside-down, and charges in only 30 minutes so it’s pretty much the perfect present. Read more on the blog! #WalmartHotWheels #ad 🏎

#Ad It’s been a crazy month here- home renovations, getting sick {multiple times} and finally going out of town. It’s good to know that Bella Notte is in good hands and is comfy at home even when I can’t be there to take care of her myself! When you use you can have someone come stop in to let your pup out, refresh their food and water, and even play with them. And don’t worry- she’s allowed on the couch!! Have you ever hired someone to help take care of your pet? If you’re thinking about it for the holidays, check out the link in my profile! @RoverDotCom #TheDogPeople 🐾

Now that the weather has finally started to cool down, we’re getting outside as often as we can! AD One of our favorite ways to enjoy the outdoors is to bring a picnic blanket to the park across the street from Shane’s school to enjoy an afterschool snack. Lately the kids {and I!} have been really into Stonyfield® YoKids® Organic Squeezers- we all love the taste, and I especially love that the YoKids® line of yogurt contains no high fructose corn syrup and 25-40% less sugar than the leading kids yogurt! I love that they contain organic ingredients and their portability makes them the perfect afterschool snack, whether we’re stopping to enjoy a picnic or rushing off to martial arts right after school. It’s no wonder that Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® is the #1 organic kids’ yogurt brand! Learn more here: #StonyfieldYoKids 🍓

Zac is loving his new Cars 3 Jackson Storm Pillow Pets friend! He recently switched to a big boy bed and he is all about a good snuggle buddy.
Now that Cars 3 is out on digital, we're getting ready for a movie night this weekend with Zac's new stuffed friend. It switches from a cuddly friend to a pillow that's perfect for watching movies on the couch!

You can get your own Cars 3 Pillow Pet- including Jackson Storm, Lightening McQueen, Mater, and Cruz Ramirez- at! {affiliate link} #AD

This summer was crazy, so I thought Shane going back to school would calm things down around here. Ha! Things are crazier than ever and it’s totally fine but man can it be exhausting. One of my favorite shortcuts is keeping easy meals like #TaiPeiFrozenFood in my freezer for those nights when I just can’t even with dinner. Read more about why I love them today on the blog! What are your time saving tips for busy days? #IC #ad 🍜

{Ad} The last month has been total chaos at our house. We had a major water leak that caused weeks of demo and reconstruction, we lost a tree and now have people trying to repair our backyard. Having everyone here fixing our house has been stressing Bella Notte out so I am SO excited to be working with @RoverDotCom! I haven’t used them before but they’re a super simple way to find dog walkers and doggy daycares in your area, so I’m going to schedule her a special walk to give her some time out of the house even though those of us who walk on two legs are all stuck inside! Have you ever used Rover? Learn more at the link in my bio! #TheDogPeople 🐶🐾

The highlight of Zac’s day is usually when we go pick up Shane from school. He’s always so excited to be reunited with Shane but he also loves getting to play! The boys always chase each other on the field and even get some playground time in. Lately Zac has been wearing his “bright orange” shoes from @m.a.p._footwear- they’re perfect for everything from running to climbing to hugging brother after a long day apart. #MAPFootwear #MotionAdventurePlay #ad 💕

Have you ever heard of @eBay for Charity? [AD] It's a platform that enables members of the eBay community to support their favorite charities- sellers can donate up to 100% of the proceeds to a charity of their choice, and buyers can also add a donation during checkout.
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of that, you can head to eBay for Charity to purchase one of these fun pins! My grandma was a two-time breast cancer survivor and my aunt is fighting it right now, so I'm wearing my pin in their honor. Who will you wear yours for? #PinsforPrevention #BreastCancerAwareness 💗

Today the weather was absolutely beautiful so I took Zac to the park and we had a picnic! I've been sick this week so this poor kiddo has been stuck inside- but we made up for it today! He loved wearing his "new bright shoes" from @m.a.p._footwear to the park, too- they're perfect for running, climbing, and playing! #MAPFootwear #MotionAdventurePlay {ad} ☀️

Last weekend, we went to visit our favorite model home- the one we are hoping to buy in a couple of years. Shane is not a big fan of the idea of moving- or at least, he wasn't, until he saw this skateboarding themed room, complete with a built-in half pipe bed!! Seeing him in this bed made me realize how big he's getting- we are dangerously close to the teenage years here! Have your kids ever had to move? How did they do? 🏠

So I've been around on Instagram Stories here and there, but otherwise I've been a little quiet around here. I live in Vegas and after the terrible tragedy that happened last week, it was just too much. So many people have recently faced hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, and senseless violence- my heart has been hurting and continues to hurt for those who are suffering. But we must go on as best as we can and for me, that means remembering that for there to be darkness, there must also be light. I've been so amazed as I see my community come to together with blood banks booked for weeks, donation centers overflowing and sending supplies elsewhere, and so on. I've been cuddling with my family and taking some time to reflect and while my heart is still hurting, I'm finding strength in them. Where do you find the light in times of darkness? #VegasStrong✨
