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.

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..

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)! You can find more home posts here.

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.
