Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us! It’s just over a week away so I thought I would get some ideas out there for those struggling for a gift. Whether its for your mother, your step-mom, MIL, grandma, great-grandma, we celebrate ALL the moms out there next week! Momming is the hardest job I have ever had, and I always knew it was going to be hard, but I have a new level of respect and appreciation for my own mom now that I’ve become a mom myself. Here I am, 31 years old and I STILL call my mom… Read the rest

Baby Registry Checklist

Are you expecting? Are you feeling overwhelmed with what to register for? Gosh, I remember with my first pregnancy I walked into Buy Buy Baby and had a breakdown because I felt so overwhelmed with all of the different options, brands, and items to register for. It honestly felt like the most daunting task and was looming over my head as a to-do item on top of everything else (for example, getting the nursery ready, working, morning sickness, baby safe classes, the list goes on.).

Easter Basket Ideas

Calling all Easter bunnies 😉 If you are like me, you are always looking for fun, new, or original ideas for your kiddos Easter baskets.

Successful Traveling with Kiddos

Selfie shot! Not the worlds best picture, but hey, we had a successful travel day so I’m not too worried 😉 This post title will probably make a few of you cringe 🙂 Definitely not the easiest task traveling with kiddos, but definitely worth it as the memories won’t be forgotten (for us anyways, neither girl will probably remember this trip). For those of you who don’t know me, we live in Denver and just last week took our two girls (ages 1 and 2.5) to Key West, FL. We were so paranoid about how the flight was going to… Read the rest

Raising Little Girls Into Strong Women

One of the most amazing speeches I’ve heard in a while! #girlpower Happy International Women’s Day! What an exciting day to celebrate for all the women out there- cheers! I have many influential women in my life, but this year I am seeing an even deeper meaning in this day as I have two little girls I am raising to become strong, confident young women. I will never forget Pink’s VMA’s acceptance speech in 2017 about her daughter and to her daughter- to love yourself! It was beyond empowering and I strive to be the example Pink is for her… Read the rest
