So excited to share my closet with you today!!!! I feel like it is very me so its a space I love to be in when it is clean ha ha, which we all know how closets get so yeah it doesn’t always look like this! Often there are clothes piled on that couch. I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces and a bit about the space so keep reading to hear more about that. But I do want to share some of the overall details before I get into all that! I collaborated with Classy Closets for my closet – I had quite a few people recommend them so I reached out to them and they were soooo wonderful to work with. In building a home you really realize how hard some companies can be to work with but they were super on top of everything.

We took these pictures for a Boll and Branch campaign we did and I wanted to share them on here too! This is our guest room – I have since added some more to the room – a little console from Target on the other end with some art on it but I don’t have those pictured yet! It has been so nice to have a guest room – in the past we have always had guests on a blow up mattress lol so this is a definite upgrade. I wanted to keep the room pretty clean and simple so that is exactly what it is. We have a bench at the foot of the bed for guests to put a suitcase on and then we have a little bathroom attached and a closet too. Which has actually become some of our Christmas decor storage haha.

Remember butterfly clips from when we were younger?! Or maybe you are younger and don’t remember haha but let me fill you in.. we had these butterfly clips that were attached to springs so the wings could bounce.. super cool right lol. I never thought the day would come but here I am with butterfly clips!  These were gifted to me by Jennifer Behr – I have purchased a few of her pieces in the past! All of her pieces are absolutely stunning. Nothing better than braids and butterflies.

Geez I have been so MIA here on the blog! I can’t wait to share why 🙂 but I also wanted to share some pictures from our California trip! Frankie is 5 months today and it’s crazy how fast time is going. Can you believe that 5 months have flown by?! We are headed to California again today for my nieces farewell – she is going on an LDS mission to Chile so everyone is headed out to celebrate before she leaves! After our cali trip, we are home until October which will be sooo nice. Unless something work related pops up which could very well happen too, but I am looking forward to just having our normal routine at home for a while. This will be our new reality with Atticus in school! We always knew the day would come when he would start school and we wouldn’t be able to travel quite as much, so we did a ton of traveling while he was young and we got a lot of our travel bug out.

I feel like the pearl accessories trend came on so strong and fast ha but I am all for it and definitely hopped on board and bought a few new pearl accessories including this hair clip. These pics were from maybe a couple months ago right after I had cut my hair and looking at these pictures now its crazy how much my hair has grown since then! We are in Idaho right now just soaking up summer 🙂 hope you’re having a good day!

A couple weeks ago we had Frankie’s blessing at church! David gave a really beautiful blessing and he said she was smiling up at him during it 🙂 she is such a special girl and it was so fun to have a day to celebrate her! There were a lot of special things said in the blessing but a couple that stood out were that she will always remember that her family is what is most important and that she will always remember she is a daughter of God. We had family over for brunch afterwards and it was deeeelicious! I didn’t end up getting any pictures of the spread we had but it was so yummy. Frankie wore the same dress Rosie wore on her blessing day! Her cousins, June and Blaire, also wore it on theirs 🙂 hopefully it will get passed around and down throughout the years.

Here are some pics we took at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad!! I love going there during springtime, it is so beautiful and there is much to do for the kiddos. They had little scavenger hunts, a playground, food, and other fun things for kids to do. If you’re ever in that area during spring time definitely go! You can also see our family trip to see the super bloom here.

One of my go to curls is my straightener curl! I have done these curls for years and wanted to show you guys because there is a little technique you can do that will change the shape of your curl to make them more like waves instead of bouncy curls. I love good bouncy curls too but prefer more wave like curls for my everyday look.  I used my Hot Tools 1 inch straightener and I usually keep mine at 380 degrees but no hotter than that.

You can view a few of my other recent “favorites” posts here and here.

I totally forgot I had these super bloom photos to post! We drove up to California for A’s spring break and it was perfect timing because we got to see all the beautiful blooms! We went to see the poppy fields in Lake Elsinore and it did not disappoint it was so insanely beautiful. We got there just before they closed it down for the season because of all the traffic it was causing. We woke up really early to go and still got stuck in so much traffic so I can see why it was becoming a problem for locals. Glad we got to see it though and it was fun to see SO many people out there enjoying it too, there was seriously thousands of people! The kids loved it too and we walked the trails and it was a fun morning hike/walk. Even on the slightest incline when walking on dirt or rocks I get so nervous I am going to fall when I wear Frankie in these wraps haha I am so paranoid about stuff like that.

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 Frankie’s newborn photoshoot. 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..
