Rosie Belle! Some of those faces she is making in the photos just show her personality so perfectly. She is a happy and giggly girl with a lot of sass haha! She learned to roll her eyes at me and does it and then giggles – its so funny. My kids are obsessed with lipstick – are anyone else’s?! They always want to help me put it on and then put it on themselves. We all know what happens with Rosie and lipstick though (see here if you missed it) so I have to keep my eye on that one.

The kiddos and I had so much fun swimming tonight. It was cloudy and really nice weather this evening and the pool was perfect temperature. They are super comfortable around water now too which makes it fun because we can jump off the diving board and play fun games.

It is Tuesday already!!! Ah. I am so mixed up on my days this week I don’t know why. David left town yesterday and will be gone fishing all week in Alaska! He went with my dad, brother, and bro in laws. So just me and the kiddies this week! Kinda excited because my sisters and I just wanna have sleepovers all week haha ­čÖé I might take the kids on a mini road trip to the mountains too. Atticus won some points tonight when I was editing photos and he kept kissing my face on the computer screen and tickling my back — that boy knows how to shmoooze it up ­čśë

The other day for a Barefoot Blonde Hair photo shoot we got popsicles and this is what I wore! My sister married into this awesome family and a couple of the boys and one of their wives started this fun popsicle truck and they make homemade pops.

One of the reasons I am happy to be in Arizona is because I get to see my grandma a lot! She is such a ray of sunshine. She is so happy all of the time and I always love her little bits of advice on how to be happy. I want to get her on a vlog one day so you guys can hear some of her thoughts because I think you guys would love her too! She always comments on the clothes I wear and shows my blog to everyone haha! Anyways, one thing that makes me happy is anything colorful – I love adding bright colors to my closet. That is why I love Kate Spade pieces – I love all of the color!! How fun are these shoes? And I love to have a red bag because I love to match it to red lipstick as a fun accent.

Hope you all had a good weekend! Today we had dinner at my parents with everyone and both tortoises came out to say hi! We got these tortoises when they were babies forevvver ago and now they are huge! They mostly hide in their big hole they duck in the backyard so the kids were excited to see both of them out. Their names are Chuck and Garson! And today I have a 12 things for ya..

Obsessed with Trader Joes. I know I am late to this obsession but it was never close to us and always crowded in NYC and they don’t have one in Hawaii. So now I get to experience the greatness!!!! I love their pre made meals in the fridge section! also their instant oatmeal is soooo good and way better than the Quaker stuff I have had my whole life. Continue reading

I know I posted this shirt in yesterday’s post but I wanted to share the whole look because I loved it and obviously that price point can’t be beat! A lot of you asked about shopping at Romwe — it is a Chinese company (from what I gather) and that explains why it takes so long to ship. The quality is comparable to Forever 21 or ASOS in my opinion. I ordered about 20 things (they also have a 60% off coupon code so check the site to see if its still there!) and I loved all of mine. What I would say about this site is don’t expect to return anything .. I am pretty sure you have to pay for shipping if you want to return and obviously it isn’t cheap getting stuff to China. So just keep that in mind I guess. And again this is not sponsored but just wanted to answer those questions you guys had!

We are back in Arizona after our week with family in Utah. I want to do a post from the weekend but don’t want to rush it so today’s post is a round up of some of the outfits I have worn on social media lately. I did a big haul and got tons of stuff $25 and under so I am going to try to include all price points more often! I think investment pieces are good but its also fun to just get cheap, cute stuff sometimes! Everything I ordered I loved. I hadn’t ordered from Romwe since college – it takes a long time to ship (over two weeks) but I loved all the pieces. (this is not sponsored btw).

Hope you guys had a great Fourth of July!!! Full of BBQ’n and family fun. Thanks for all your sweet messages over the weekend.

Happy hump day!! I feel like an actual camel lately because we have been trying to drink a gallon of water a day and it is more challenging than it sounds, at least for me. Mainly because I forget to …

Fourth of July is one of my all time favorite holidays!!!! All of the traditions that come with it are so fun. We usually always spend it with David’s entire family in Utah. All the nieces and nephews go do summer camps at BYU, we go to Stadium of Fire (Brian Regan this year and I am SO excited because he makes me belly laugh soo hard!), do a massive slip n slide, and of course watch the fireworks. I always love to have fun outfits for the Fourth so thought I would share some pieces above and some other favorite pieces for the Fourth in the widget above. I have this swimsuit and this one! I am so excited to wear them.

Hope you guys have fun Fourth planned!!!!! xoxoxo

Photos from Fourth of July

Guys I love my shorter hair!! I know I only cut around 3 inches off but it just feels so good.┬áRemember a while ago when I dyed my hair pink? Well the pink wouldn’t fade out so I had to bleach it back – and it really damaged my hair in the process. It felt so dry and dead on the ends. I gave myself a little trim then and have been really good to it since but I still needs those three inches gone and I am so glad I finally did. In addition to cutting off my ends I decided to challenge myself to a little summer hair rehab. I was telling my sisters about what I have been doing the last few weeks and they were like, you should make it a challenge and tell your readers! And I thought it was a cute idea so here I am!
