I am asked a lot about my bangs and if I liked them or if I would recommend them even though I don’t have them anymore so I thought I would do a post about bangs!! When I cut mine I had hair falling out left and right after having Rosie so I felt like bangs would help cover some of the spots that looked like they were balding. I am glad I had them and tried it out but I wouldn’t get them again! Below are some reasons why.

The other day I was at the dermatologist and she said “SPF is your BFF” and I thought it was catchy and it has stuck in my brain. I grew up in Arizona basically lounging by the pool with zero sunscreen my whole life. I was trying to get as tan as I could and now my skin is definitely paying for that. BUT never too late to start caring about SPF and taking care of your skin!

I wanted to share today how we plan activities to do with the kids and also some tricks I have found give me some follow through so I actually do activities with my kids! I think it is really easy just to stay at home most days with the kids – and don’t get me wrong it feels gooooood to stay home and nothing is wrong with it and I actually think it is really healthy to have those lazy, unplanned days. But even if the kids aren’t bored I get a little bored and anxious to get out – and even if we don’t get out we do try to be as intentional with our time as we can. So here are my tips and I want to hear what works for you other moms as well!

Wow yesterday was absolutely the best!!!! We woke up and the kids were so excited to see their baskets and do the egg hunt. Rosie would say “dada, right there!!!!” every time she spotted an egg. And it was so sweet to see Atticus find eggs and give them to Rosie. They especially loved opening their Easter cards .. We got Atticus a Paw Patrol card that he thought was so cool and Rosie a bunny card that she kept hopping around with and saying how “cuuuuute” the bunny was. Then we had…

Since today is Tuesday I figured it would be appropriate so share these taco pics from a little while back. First I wanted to say thank you for your comments on my last post! Love hearing what you other mama’s do and you guys always have good advice or just the nicest comments that brighten my day. I always read all comments even if I don’t have time to respond. I started writing a draft of a blog post for next week – it is about things I want to do or see before I turn 30 and it got me thinking that I would love to hear what your things are too. So be thinking of that and get ready to share in the comments next week. But it could be any number depending on how old you are – things you want to do before you turn 20, 40 or 50 or whatever milestone is next for you.

How was your weekend?! I hope it was good! These photos are from a couple weeks ago. Since we have the studio at our BFBH offices I quickly had David snap a pic when the kids came to visit me and they ended up being some of my favorite pics ever!! Lately I have really been struggling getting mentally ready to leave for our Europe trip. I am going to Europe for 12 days without David or the kids. At first David was going to come with me but we were both feeling really uneasy about leaving the kids for that long.. and David said he wanted to be home for a project we are working on so he volunteered to stay home. It instantly made me feel so much better but I am still having a hard time knowing I am leaving them for so long…
