Today’s favorites post is some of my favorite, must have travel items!!! I will have to do a part 2 because the list was actually getting quite long so I tried to narrow it down a bit and keep these as my basic things I always bring. Here we gooo. For packing, we have used packing cubes for a couple years now and these are my favorite ones because they have a spot for labels! I love labeling who’s in who’s. I will have one labeled A’s Shirts or Swimsuits or something. Keeps me so organized.

Over the weekend we stayed at a cabin in Sundance, Utah with David’s side of the family! The cousins went sledding, played in the snow, and stayed up late (and ate too many treats). We also got to celebrate David’s birthday!!!! It was the first time we have gotten to celebrate it with his family so that was fun. David loves sour straws and sour worms so Sweet Tooth Fairy made him a sour candy themed cake! A highlight from the weekend was Rosie and Atticus singing Happy Birthday 🙂 We got back late last night and Atticus had show and tell at school today which I think was the only thing getting him out of bed early this AM! And I leave for LA today for work. I am shooting Willow and Clay’s Spring/Summer lookbook with them so I am excited! Here are some pics from the weekend.

If you follow along on my insta stories you may have seen me documenting getting microneedled! I have done it twice now and REALLY love the results of it so I wanted to share a little more on this treatment. Mostly because I had no idea what it was and had so many questions about it. I have been working with Rachel at Desert Sky Dermatology so she is going to answer all of the questions I had on this treatment! I also am posting some photos from RIGHT after the treatment, 1 day after, and 2 days after. My face is REALLY red and a few tiny dots of blood so if you have a hard time with blood at all then maybe don’t scroll down.

Sharing an outfit post today! This is a look I wore yesterday for a chill day with the kids. I took them to the office with me and they helped me run some errands. Then we went out for my dad’s birthday! Yesterday I also decided to cut my new pair of extensions to the length of my natural hair! So in these pics I am just wearing two small wefts – one on each side for a little added thickness. I think I am going to go with this more natural look for a while to mix things up.

This is the second Favorite Things series and so far I have really loved planning this series. Have you guys ever been to a Favorite Things party with your girlfriends? My friends in New York and also here in Arizona do them a lot and they are really fun. It is actually what inspired this series. At the party each girl brings their favorite thing – sometimes there is a theme like bring your favorite beauty item but most of the time it can be anything. At these parties I have seen people bring their favorite kitchen utensil, favorite candle, lipsticks, a book, a travel accessory – pretty much anything and everything.

So today’s Favorite Thing is lipsticks!!! I have had lipsticks on my mind because I just went through and cleaned out my make up drawer and got rid of any lipsticks I am not crazy about or any that I don’t wear.

Our first podcast/book club post yay! So (for those who didn’t listen) the podcast we are talking about today is Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday podcast and this one was the episode with Mariel Hemingway and her husband! Mariel is the granddaughter to Ernest Hemingway. Ernest and six other family members were drawn to addiction and ended their lives in suicide. So Mariel talks with Oprah about how she dealt with it all and created a new life for herself.

We did a fun hike over the weekend and I thought I would share some of the pictures from our phones! We went to hike Wind Caves in Arizona – it is 1.5 miles up and 1.5 miles down. We had the kids in hiking carriers but my back was instantly in sooo much pain with mine off so we took mine off and had Atticus walk with me! Which ended up being way better anyways because he LOVED hiking and checking out all the snake holes, the cacti (and making sure NO ONE got too close ha), and running from snakes – it was so so fun! We only probably got a half mile up before we had to turn back and head down before it got dark but it was so fun to just go at the kid’s pace and stop at every little thing that interested them.

I am so beyond excited to share some sneak peeks of the design of our new home we are building! We are working with Becki Owens for the second time and I am so excited with how the final designs turned out. I also just feel incredibly spoiled and grateful to even be building a home. This has always been a dream of mine and I am thrilled to have a home our kids can make memories and grow up in. I’m super excited to share the process with you all.

Once we got to Arizona we were searching for an architect and found Sean from Pinnacle Conceptions and he is really really really talented and I am so happy we found him. He thought of every last detail when it came to the floor plan, height of stairs, door ways, functionality, evvvverything. If you are in Arizona and need an architect I would recommend him a million times over!!!

This is Volume 1 of my new Favorite Things Series! Each Wednesday we will have a theme to these posts and they will be my favorite things from that category or theme! Today’s is FITNESS! I figured a lot of people probably set fitness goals for the year so this might be a good one to start with. I shared my 2 fitness goals below along with all of my favorite fitness related products!!! First up is Protein Pancakes!!! The Kodiak Cakes Pancake mix tastes sooo good. I have tried adding protein powders to pancake mix and it always tastes kinda good but slightly off.

Happy New Year!!!! This year we all went to my mom’s house and had Chinese food and played minute to win it games, it was so fun! I love that each year there is a reset button and we get a fresh start! I am constantly setting goals throughout the year and love to have goals going into the New Year! A lot of them are continuations from my goals last year because they are things I will always be working on and want to always be reminding myself of and some are new ones! So here are few of the goals I have been thinking about for myself and I have also included a few of my favorite quotes that I think will help me accomplish these goals this year.

The second podcast episode we will be listening to is Cheryl Strayed. I have also provided you with a calendar, so you can see when we will be having podcast and book discussions on the blog. You can print the calendar out and use the notes section to write discussion points that you would like to talk about.
