Combating Frizz During Summer

June 25, 2016

Nobody likes frizz, right? It's always inevitable during summer our hair tends to puff up so nicely because of the heat and humidity and it's not something I look forward to- I'm sure you don't either! It's always worse in July and August in AZ because of monsoon season so if you're an AZ local, I hope this post can help you combat it before it starts very soon for us!

Let's chat, shall we?

Pregnancy Update - 20 Weeks

June 23, 2016

I am 20 weeks pregnant so we've hit the halfway mark with our sweet girl! I feel like I've blinked and it's gone by so quickly whereas with Emery, it's all I could think about and focus on so it went so slowly. I don't have time to really mull it all over running after a toddler and keeping a 10 year old with a broken leg entertained... lol! 

Parasol Co - Diaper Subscription

June 22, 2016

Good morning! I posted on instagram last week about how we weren't a fan of the Honest diaper bundles, which surprised a lot of people (!!) but also about how we did a trial on Parasol Co which too has a diaper subscription. I thought it would be a great resource to other mamas who didn't like Honest to read through and see some pros and cons of both companies and why we did decide to start a subscription with Parasol Co.

Baby Shower Invites

My first time around with my baby shower we did a tea party which turned out so beautiful thanks to my mom and sister in law so this year I know they're already talking about throwing something again but I want to keep it clean and simple and oh, so baby!

Sweet Summa Time

It's summer time in AZ so the 115 degree days are likely spent doing some kind of water activity to keep the kids from going crazy inside the house all day long. We don't have a pool so I picked up an $8 kiddie pool from Walmart a few weeks back and she's been loving spending time in it. We have a water table too so when we don't want to fully commit to a swim session, that does the trick too. 

iPad Apps for Littles

As much as I hate to admit it, Emery gets screen time almost everyday and it was something I swore would never happen when I was pregnant. I thought putting her in front of a screen over stimulating her little mind would be just stupid but it's proven to be a great tool helping her learn while also getting time for myself and work.

Bathroom Cabinets Complete!

June 6, 2016

I finally finished the kids bathroom cabinet overhaul! It took me longer to complete simply due to life happening but the process itself was so simple and easy. I first talked about the idea here and why I chose chalk paint and the color Duck Egg Blue so check it out to get up to speed.

I shared on instagram when the painting was done so I wanted to answers questions straight from that post people had to better help you when tackling a project of this nature...
