If you guys have been following for a while then you know that David is most definitely the chef in the family and is the one who cooks daily! It is funny because his dad loved to cook growing up, my dad loved to cook and did all the time, and now David and his brothers all love to cook. So definitely not the norm over here. (or maybe it is?! Does your husband cook too?!) We have been doing Blue Apron off and on for a few years now! (Does anyone remember our first post with them when I was pregnant with Atticus?)

Hope you all had a great 3 day weekend! We really had the best day today with our kiddos! We played at playgrounds, went to the legoland here in Arizona, played about 100 games of hide n seek, went to costco, and relaxed at the house! Super excited for tomorrow for work because we are working on really fun projects…

Happy Friday!!! I am actually writing this on a Thursday while we are at the airport. I am soooo excited to see the kids. We just facetimed them and they were so excited when we said we are coming home right now! Eeeeeeeek! Tomorrow morning the kids have dance and gym class and I am super excited for a 3 day weekend (Atticus has school off on Monday!!!) My brother is coming in town from Utah and my niece, June, is getting blessed so they are having a blessing for her Sunday! We will probably go to this Balkan bakery we found online – its in Phoenix and I am hoping they have my favorite pastry. What are you guys doing for the long weekend?!

Hello from Palm Beach! It is my first time here and it is so beautiful! We are out here with the Lilly Pulitzer team shooting their swim collection that launches TODAY!!! The swimsuits are all so beautiful and made so well – you feel really held in, like you could go run around and be active in them. Which is nice for me when I am at the beach with my kiddos. Speaking of kids, Lilly Pulitzer also designs mini swimsuits, ah they are so precious.

The podcast for this month is my other favorite (next to Super Soul) which is How I Built This! I have listened to every single episode and have loved every single one .. of course some more than others but have taken something away from each one. The podcast is hosted by Guy Raz and I think he does a really good job with the interviews and getting them to share their story but also share helpful tips or parts of the story that could benefit other people. He has episodes with a bunch of different companies like Starbucks, Kate Spade, Instagram, and a lot more. My dad started a business when him and my mom were first married and that is the business he still runs! I remember him telling us a lot about his business and how he started it and I remember hearing all of these business terms from a young age because of him.

Sharing some photos from Venice, California today! In January I shot the Spring lookbook for my curated collection with Willow & Clay and I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces, since the Spring #WCxBarefootBlonde collection just launched! They have the cutest spring line with floral prints and some hints of western. When we shot I was nervous it was going to be cold since we were shooting a spring line, but it was perfect weather! Minus the wind that kept making my eyes water like crazzzzzy! Pretty sure the makeup artist had to redo my eyeliner about 20 times – not an exaggeration ha ha. Below are some pics of the pieces! Let me know what your favorite is!

I have talked to you guys about how I have been using a retinol cream – well they are really good but also dry your face out if you don’t use a good moisturizer with it. That is why I am so excited to partner with Olay! I’ve been using Olay Total Effects Whip and i’ve been loving the results. It helps hydrate skin, even skin tone and even offers several anti-aging benefits.

I wanted to share all of our Banff photos with you guys! This is one of our favorite places ever and last time we were in Banff I was pregnant with Rosie. We always talked about going back again with her. We visited all the places we went last time and showed her where we had been! This time Lake Louise was frozen over and we got to ice skate on it! Well, Atticus and David went ice skating while Rosie and I searched the ice castles for Elsa. Rosie walked around asking “Elsa, where are youuu??” “Mommy where is Elsa?” Actually she says “Helsa” ha ha.

I am doing my Favorite Things series today instead of tomorrow since my schedule changed! Today’s our favorite kids books right now! My kids get obsessed with books and ask to read them over and over again so these are the ones my kids are currently really into. I love to read to them when they are eating a meal or before bed or during “quiet time”. I love finding books that I enjoy too so I don’t mind reading it 100+ times 😉 I really enjoy all of these.

It is officially February and I am so excited for this month’s club selections. For the podcast this month, we will all be listening to an episode of your choice from the How I Built This podcast. Pick an episode and when we meet for our discussion, you can talk about the episode you listened to. I was going to pick a specific one but there are soo many good ones so I figured everyone just pick one that sounds good and then tell us which one you picked! This is my favorite podcast next to Super Soul!

For our book of the month, we will be reading Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist. I wanted to do Present Over Perfect even though I know I have already read it!!! It’s one book I REALLY wanted to talk to everyone about so I thought it would be fun to do, so all of us could chat about it.

These are some pics from a walk around the neighborhood with the kids!! Rosie couldn’t help but stop to twirl every two feet so the walk was very short in distance but took a very long time ha ha. Atticus was busy racing ahead on his bike. He has a Paw Patrol bike that his grandma got him for his birthday last year. He loves it so much that I actually have to put it in the trunk everywhere we go,he has to know it’s with us! (Sometimes I pretend to put it back there but no one tell him that 😉 ). I hope you guys are having a good day! Tomorrow I’m posting the February Podcast & Book Club calendar so check back tomorrow for that!
