Here are some photos and a vlog (watch it HERE!) from our sledding trip up in Stowe! I never knew Vermont was such a cute place, we loved it! When we were packing for this trip I knew it was only going to be a couple days but I somehow filled my suitcase with the least important items needed for a snow trip (I only brought one pair of LEGGINGS – not even jeans – who am i? I was a little too tired while packing) so when we got there we did a trip to a ski store to get some snow pants for all of us and some mittens that would actually stay on Atticus. I overpacked for a two day trip but it was our first time using packing cubes (I ordered these) and I am kinda obsessed with them now. We got a different color for each family member and it definitely kept our hotel cleaner. We stayed at the Field Guide and all the rooms had fireplaces which is a must for a snow trip. I so wish we had a fireplace in our apartment at home!

I am so happy its the weekend! I am meeting up with some girlfriends and their babies today, we are hanging some new shelves in the nursery, we just got our DINING table in (first time David and I have ever had an actual table to eat at ha) so we will probably have some family dinners finally, I will be organizing my closet, and Sunday we leave for DISNEY WORLD! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! xo

  15. Hey girl! Not related to this post at all, but can you tell me if you liked the waist trainer you were thinking of getting for post baby?? And what size you got??!! I’m trying to do some research and would love to know your thoughts! xoxo – elissa

  16. Sorry to leave another comment, but I keep trying to fill out your contact form and I can’t seem to get the message to go through because of a validation error. Every time I answer the math question I can’t type in the box. Would you be able to give me your email address? I just had a couple of questions 🙂 thanks!

  17. I’ve been so crazy busy lately that I haven’t been able to sit down and read your posts for weeks! Which is depressing to me because I love reading what you have to say haha I finally got all caught up, I definitely missed reading. I’m so glad to see that you guys are doing well. Oh and I am SO JELOUS that you’ll be going to Disney World. I’m obsessed with Disney everything. I wish I could afford a spontaneous trip there so I could meet you &be in the best place ever! You’re probably be so creeped out by me now, I am so sorry haha I hope you guys have tons of fun!

    xo, Jany

    1. Aww you are so cute!! I am so glad you got to catch up 🙂 And yes!! We loved Disney World!! So so fun!!

  18. What a fun trip! All the little kids in the snow, how exciting and how cute!!

    1. Thanks so much!! And yes! They loved it 🙂 Thanks for reading!! Have a great week!! xo

  19. Amber I love all the pics of your sweet kids and all the adventures you have! But I can’t help but notice the forward facing infant seat in the last pic. Maybe it’s not installed, at least I hope not! Actually both car seats are forward facing. Did you know its 502% safer to keep kids under 2 rearfacing in their car seats. Also infant seats aren’t designed to face forward. I just had a friend who lost her fiancé in a car accident, the first responders said no one should have survived, but her 15 month old was unscratched and they said it was due to proper car seat use and still rearfacing him. Please please please look into the manuals for their carseats, make sure their straps are coming from behind them for rear facing and above their shoulders when forward facing. Also make sure the chest clip is at shoulder level as to protect their organs in a crash. Car seat safety is so important and youre such an advocate for young families! You would be the perfect spokes person for car seats. You’re babies are adorable.

    1. The carseat was just set in there and not installed yet! He is always rear facing 🙂 thank you for your concern though! xo

  20. So much adorable-ness!!! I loved the VLOG…it’s so fun to see you all on trips and see how you all making the best family moments ever!! SO glad it ended with a snowfall…way cute! Enjoy Disney and hope to see more VLOGS! 🙂 All the best!

  21. When I studied abroad in Italy, my family came to visit and we somehow ended up with a Sprinter van from the rental place, ha! It was completely frightening trying to navigate tiny Italian streets with that thing, but we all fell in love with the vehicle! It’s the ultimate road tripping car. Let’s just say that my father was extremely excited when they recently came to the US market 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh I can only imagine!! That van would be so hard on tiny roads haha! But I bet it was so fun to have everyone in one car road tripping 🙂

  22. Wow looks like an awesome trip! You are definitely pulling off momma of two!! A and Rosie look sooo much alike I love it!

  23. Such a cute post! I’ve always wanted to go to Vermont, it looks so pretty! Definitely a spot for a blogger haha 🙂
    BTW where is your lime green jacket from, the one in your Vermont vlog? It is super cute! I couldn’t find it linked here on your blog, sorry if I missed it!


  24. aww amber these pics are perfect!!! totally feel your overpacking, I went to Michigan this weekend with some friends and probably packed 7 pairs of leggings for 3 days haha it happens!! have fun in Disneyland 🙂

    1. Thank you Sara!! And haha that is hilarious!! Glad I am not the only one 😉

  25. Hey Amber! I’ve been wondering…. What do you use to whiten your teeth? I’m a BIG fan of your blog! You and your sweet family are perfect 🙂

  26. What do you whiten your teeth with? Also, big fan of your blog! You and your sweet family are perfect 🙂

    1. Thanks!! We had a great time!! And I know huh?! She is such a good sleeper!

  27. Wow, this looks like tons of fun! I really love your account! Every time i look at your pics it reminds me to just explore and have more
    fun with my two little kids. I absolute adore your attitude of not taking everything too serious, making the best of yourself (especially as a mama) and every day you spend with your family! Thank you for being so inspiring!

    1. Thank you so much!! I am so glad to hear that 😉 You seriously are too kind and totally made my day!! I love hearing from other mamas! xo

  28. HI AMBER,

    1. Thank you so much!! How nice of you 🙂 I am so glad you follow along!!

      Oh and I use a program called Lightroom to edit my pictures!! xo

  29. This looks like such a fun trip! So sweet, and I love your Northface jacket! I’m been trying to decide between one just like that or a puffy Patagonia one … Love the color of yours!

    Chelcey |

    1. Thanks so much!! We had a bast 🙂 And I don’t think you can go wrong with either jacket!! I hope you find one you love!

  30. OMG so many activities! You are always on the way to somewhere hahaha
    For your tires arms I recommend a good ergo carrier. They are super comfortable because the weight is so evenly distributed. And when they get to big you can always carry them on your back! Hope it helps


    1. Haha yes! We love to stay busy and explore new places! 🙂 And yes! We have an Ergo, thanks so much!! xo

  31. So adorable! You and you’re family are breathtaking!
    I was wondering what you use to edit your pictures? Ive been trying to find a good pic editor website and I love how you do yours! thanks so much xoxo

    1. Thank you so much!! And I use a program called Lightroom to edit them 🙂 I hope that helps!! xo

  32. This looks like so much fun! Might have to get one of those vans next time we go on a family vacay with the extended family, they look awesome! Super jealous you are going to Disney World – can I come 😉 😉 <3


    1. Thank you so much!! 🙂 And yes do it!! The van is a game changer for sure!

  33. You are such a down to earth, happy gal! It’s shows in your family and everything you surround! It’s so refreshing to see this especially with the social media now days. Awesome pictures and definitely a beautiful family! You bring tons of sunshine to my days! ❤️????

    1. You are too kind!! Thank you so much for making my day 🙂 I appreciate it!! xo

  34. Your going to love Disney world! We live down in Jacksonville now! Make sure you go to the safari at animal kingdom! Atticus would totally love that!

    1. We are so excited!!! Thanks for the suggestions!! I am sure he will love it 🙂

  35. GOODNESS GRACIOUS THAT PICTURE OF ATTICUS BY THE FIRE PLACE. I cannot even handle it. I think I watched the vlog 3 times because of so much cuteness. The cartwheel, particularly, was my favourite part.

    You should definitely look into getting a fireplace that you just plug into the wall, it’s pretty much a faux fire place (faux makes it sound fancier, ya?). That’s what we’re looking into! Cause fireplaces are just so dreamy.

    Anywho, another lovely post! Hope you’re doing well, lovely!


    1. You are too cute!!! Thanks so much!! I am so happy you liked the post and vlog yay!! And I have heard of those faux fireplaces, I would totally love that. I will look into it!! Thanks again for the comment!! xo

  36. These pictures are just so sweet!! I love that beanie (toque)! I got my girlfriend the mitts for Christmas and she loved them I may have to go back and surprise her with the matching toque!
    Thanks for sharing and have the best time in Disney World… your kids are going to be sooo excited!

    1. Aww thank you Holly!! We are excited for some sunshine in Florida 🙂 And yay! So glad she liked them! What a nice friend you are!! xo

  37. Amber! This looks like so much fun and you look absolutely gorgeous! 🙂

  38. What a fun adventure, here in the south(Atlanta) no snow but I do miss it some days lol.

    1. It was so fun!! We loved it 🙂 And I hear ya but after a few weeks of winter we are wishing we had your weather 😉 Isn’t it funny how that works?! haha

  39. Your energy inspires us, the color and always get love in your life ❤︎
    Lots of love from Turkey!

  40. I love how cute your entire family is! My favorite picture is of you laying on the ground with rosie on your legs! You are such a precious mama! I can’t wait for you guys to go to Disneyworld- we went once a year when I was growing up and I have the honest childhood memories!
    Xo, Tara

  41. My friends in NJ have 7 kids and drive a Sprinter van. I call her The Bus Driver.

    1. Aww thanks Emily!! I love seeing them all bundled up, it’s my favorite 🙂

  46. Hi Amber, hope all is well with you. Seems like you and your family had a fun trip! Love watching your vlogs.. I definitely laughed a little when you were trying to stear the little wagon and you finally got it and David was like wrong way haha 🙂

    Have a great weekend xo

  47. Looks like you went to Burlington also! I went to college there and it is still one of my favorite places to visit! Love all the cute snow gear. Can’t wait to see pictures of you and the family at Disney. Enjoy!
    xo Hannah

  48. Your whole trip looked like so much fun! I LOVE that van!! I need a car with more room. I always say this but you really do have such a cute little family! It makes me so excited to have my second baby. 🙂

    Simply Rachel Nicole

  49. Absolutely Flawless my friend!!!! ???? Vermont is a great place!! You all look amazing! Your children are absolutely beautiful!!! And the video? Amazing!!! What a great memory to have!!! Enjoy Disney!! Can wait to see all the posts!!! Have fun love!!! ❤️????

  50. How adorable could Stowe be an prettier never visited there, but on my list. Your kiddos look like they’re having fun! Enjoy Disney!
    P.S. Let me know how you like the food prep I’ve never tried it, but I could be inspired. XO

  51. “Will you end this? because I can’t with my mittens on.” Haha, i loved the vlog! Vermont is somewhere I’ve never visited. I’ll have to go sometime! Here in Arkansas we get our fair share of cold, but rarely snow! Hoping for some snow soon! Really enjoyed watching this sweet family video!

    xoxo, Caylie

  52. Love the pictures from your trip especially the one of Atticus next to the fireplace. How cute is he??!! Hope you have a great weekend, and I can’t wait to see your pictures at Disney World!!!

  53. Looks like such a nice vacation!!

    1. It was so gorgeous there, we loved it! 🙂 Thanks for the comment and have an amazing weekend!! xo

  54. Looks like such a fun trip! Little kids bundled up in snow gear has to be one of the most precious things!

    And growing up one of my friend’s family had a basically sprinter van (it wasn’t quite as big but maybe things have just gotten bigger over the years haha). They had a big family that all did sports and whenever we got to go in their car we thought it was the coolest thing EVER!!

    xo Mary-Katherine |

  55. Oh girl, I know you’re probably hearing this enough but why is that carseat facing forward? Eek! Besides that, looks like an AMAZING time! The kiddies all look so cute in their snowsuits haha

    1. Hey girl, those are actually front facing car seats belonging to our friend’s older, larger children;) Thanks for your concern though!

    1. No way!!! If you see us come say hi!! We would love it 🙂 And have a blast!! xo

  56. I am sneaking into the bathroom to watch your vlog at work right now LOL ps. You can get portable fireplaces from target or costco that you just plug in. They sound so tacky but I wanted the fireplace upgrade in a house we are looking to build and it is SO expensive so I checked some out at target and they are actually really cute and its real gas fire and so much cheaper. Perfect for apartments!

  57. I’ve never been to Vermont but it looks like both of your families had an amazing time! Just too cute. And AMBER, I am going to Disney World next week! I hope you have an amazing time – I know we are so ecstatic over here 🙂


  58. Vermont looks amazing! I’ve never been, but it seems like both of your families had an absolute blast! And AMBER, I am leaving for Disney World this week too! Too funny. I hope you have an amazing time! We are so excited over here too 🙂


    1. It was so charming, we loved it!! And no way!!! How fun! I hope we see you there 😉 When do you get there?! xo

      1. YES! That would be amazing. We’ll be there at the end of the week! I hope the weather will be warm for all of us 🙂

  59. AHHHH your life is future goals! Glad you guys had a wonderful time, love the pictures! Have fun in Disney!! I was just there for New Years and it never disappoints!

    1. Oh stop!! You are too nice!! Thanks for being so sweet 🙂 And thank you! We are excited for some Florida sunshine!!

  60. One of my favorite posts!! Loved all the bright snow gear from you Atticus and Rosie. I love her leopard slouch beanie so much, if I ever have a girl I have to get that! My son has two slouch beanies and we love them so much!

    1. Thanks so much!! I love hearing that 🙂 And yay! SO glad you love Slouch!! We are obsessed! xo

    1. Thank you!! We loved our time there 🙂 And aww you are too cute!! Thanks love!! Have a great Saturday!
