We took these photos when Frankie was a week old and they were our first family photos together! Not going to lie I was a little stressed before this shoot. We shot with a photographer (who is amazing!) but I honestly haven’t done a family session with a photographer in soo long and got so used to shooting whenever felt right since David takes the pics – they just kind of naturally happen and we always have the flexibility of being like eh not working out and trying another day. So I was stressed having a specific time and place for a shoot for once! But Katie did amazing and is so easy to shoot with – she got natural movements of our family while also helping direct us when we needed it. Also it is just so nice to have David is more pics 😉 BUT this is more about Frankie soooo here she is..

These pictures are some pictures we took a few Sunday’s ago when the kids were swingin away in Rosie’s room. I bought this cute swing and had it personalized for Ro’s room and the kids love playing on it. They push each other and their little dolls. I know my kids fight like any siblings do but these moments when they play SO well together makes me want to have another close to Frankie because their relationship is soo sweet! (most the time lol)

Here to share my favorite nursing bras! Frankie is now a month old and I feel like I gave each bra a fair shot – even ones I didn’t like I tried to wear for at least 5 days to see if I ended up liking it. I am sharing my top 4 that are my favorites and some honorable mentions that were good but not my favorite! For a nursing bra I mostly look for something comfortable, not so much something that is “sexy” so just keep that in mind. Here are my favorites!

One of our favorite activities is picking and juicing oranges! As you have probably noticed by now. Fresh OJ is a staple of my childhood and reminds me so much of growing up and of memories juicing oranges as a kid and my dad always spoiling us with a nice cold glass in bed in the morning. I wanted to show you guys bits of our kitchen but thought it would be fun to do so through an activity that we are often doing in our kitchen, juicing oranges 🙂

We made our first road trip with Frankie girl and it was sooo fun! We went out to San Diego to my sister in laws house to see family and also to see the super bloom! Also just because it was A’s spring break and we wanted to go do something fun as a family. As soon as we got there we went to the beach. It feels like forever since we had been in the sand – even though I know it wasn’t THAT long ago.. it felt so good to have our feet in the sand. We went to Moonlight Beach and David and I sat with Frankie and watched Rosie and Atticus play in the sand. Then the next day we went to our favorite beach in that area, Seaside! We played in the sand and relaxed for a few hours or basically until Rosie and I got too cold.

Today I am sharing details for one of my favorite rooms in our home! To be honest this room I did not expect to be my favorite at all – we made this loft area with teens in mind since we plan to be in this home for a very long time. We always have talked about how we want our home to be the place our kids hang out with their friends and so we made the loft area so there could be an extra hang out space for teens one day. But after we got the piano in there (our exact same piano is linked below!) we decided to go ahead and decorate it and start using it now. We put a couch and tv in here and we have a nintendo switch so the kids can play games with cousins from other states and David’s mom has one too so they can play with their grandma.

Our girl is finally here!!!! Frankie Jane Clark – and I wanted to do a little post to introduce her! It was so much fun having the gender be a surprise because it made the whole experience that much more special! I had several dreams that I gave birth and they held the baby up and said “its a girl!” (and with all the dreams right after I freaked out and kept saying how it was too early to have the baby and asked if we could put her back in haha!) so that made me think I was having a girl. BUT everyone on insta kept saying I was having a boy – like I would get dm’s saying “You’re having a boy.” .. like literally just that. And it got to the point where so many people sounded SO sure that I thought an ultrasound tech in the office I go to had told someone what I was having and it got out!

So excited to share our laundry room today! I’ve never had a laundry room before, so it’s been fun to have this space. We actually weren’t able to have any linen closets with how our layout works so this space acts as a linen closet and laundry room. We wanted to have a lot of storage space for bedding, towels, medicine, cleaning supplies, gift wrap, the works.. all in one space. Becki designed everything (I have all specs listed below!) and I love how it turned out. We did a very soft blue for the cabinets, I love how subtle and calm the color is. We had Masterbrand do all of our custom cabinetry and they custom matched Iceberg by Benjamin Moore for the cabinets. We went with the Decora line and our door style is the ‘Harmony’ door style!

We moved into our home 4 days before Christmas! It was really hectic those first few days but we decided to do as much as we could and then just shut down and enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas without worrying about un-packing! We are about 80% moved in but still just need to wait for a few remaining items, style shelves, and put the finishing touches on each room. We have just been picking a couple projects each day to work on but not worrying too much about it and just trying to take it slow and soak up this exciting feeling of being in our first home! I am no pro at moving but wanted to share some of my tips for moving!

One of my favorite rooms in our home is our living room! It has such a cozy and peaceful feeling. I wanted to show you guys a couple peeks at night and in the morning since I can’t decide which time of day I like being in there most. At night I love the lighting and coziness and in the morning it feels so fresh!

Guys this year I turn 29 which means I am almost 30! I am actually incredibly excited to turn 30 next year and think 30’s will be the best years, but I do think a lot about anti-aging routines and protecting my skin. I have told you how I reallllly rocked my skin growing up in Arizona and being out in the sun (WITHOUT sunscreen ugh) almost every day of the year and I def am paying for it now. Some of my favorite products to help with anti-aging are hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, retinols, and moisturizers.

These are the 6 most recent reads of mine and also some of the books I have lined up in my Kindle and Audible. First is Contagious, I absolutely LOVED this book! I really was so inspired by a lot of the things said and they sparked some new ideas with projects we are working on. It goes over why certain marketing is successful and why some isn’t. But he shares some really good examples and I got a lot out of it.
