Our Top Ten Favorite Children’s Books

Reading quickly becomes a very big part of a babies routine. Both Katelyn and I started reading books to our babes at bedtime around 2 weeks old. What you figure out quickly is there are some really bad kid books out there! Some just say the same thing over and over again, others really have no story line. We found that our favorites ended up being the same ones our kids responded to the most as well. The books below are our absolute favorites that we adore and both Caroline and Luke love as well! Classic and really helps them learn the alphabet, plus the bright colors really keep them interested… Chicka Chika Boom Boom  Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes  Love these series, great pictures and it’s fun for them to learn about different states and places. Good Night Denver Blue Little Truck I Love you So  Another series we love, these books are so fun for the babes to touch and feel. They also can be purchased with a stuffed animal that matches. Caroline loves reading them, touching them and then hugging the stuffed animal that goes with the book… If I were a bunny… This is a great book for having them find the animals and being interactive while reading.. Each Pear Plum Pear  This book is so GREAT and how fun for them to have a book with their own name in it. This site has a ton of different options for customizing books. We […]

Laguna Beach Travel Diary

I love getting to the ocean, it is the only thing CO is lacking. Therefore, we try to head to the beach every time we go on vacation. My husband and I went to Laguna a few years back and we really fell in love with the area. We were excited to get back and to bring little Caroline along this time. The first time we went we stayed at The Ritz, it is a gorgeous hotels with one of the most beautiful views, but it is very commercial. For this trip I wanted a more boutique vibe and while doing research I came across The Ranch. It is nestled in the hills, but they have a golf cart that can take you down to a path right to the beach. Although I usually want to be right on the beach, I felt like this hotel looked like a perfect mix and still had pretty good beach access. I was so glad when we arrived that it was just that and more. The communal area is where we spent most of our time, very serene and very relaxing. The food was DELICIOUS and the staff was great. I also loved the interior design of their restaurant, lobby, bathroom etc. They have the cutest bistro lights out on their patio along with live music and beautiful succulents everywhere. I adored this place and will sure stay there again. I will say if you make a trip to Laguna for sure visit the Ritz […]

Outfit of the Week

Happy Thursday! Okay friends, I cannot get enough of these pants. They are beyond comfortable, light weight and a great fit (high waisted, momma style). I love that I can wear them around the house while I’m running after Caroline, cooking, cleaning or just relaxing since they are so cozy. I can also jet out of the house in them and feel put together unlike sweats. You can basically wear them with any top too which is a bonus! I like tucking my shirt in with them because of the high waist and feel like it looks better since the pants flow. My go-to pairings are our favorite target tees, a bodysuit or just a simple button up like the one below (of course from target and only $17.99). And these Tory Burch sandals are a must for summer, I wear them almost everyday! They are a little pricey (I know sister!) but they are comfortable and last for a long time. I feel like this outfit is very Hamptons Chic, almost like I am prancing out of one of those gorgeous houses in Revenge. This look will be a staple all summer long! Cheers, Meg

Bedroom Reveal

As most of you know we completely renovated our new home. My husband and I made all the design decisions, so it was a lot of work, but it has made the final result that much more special. Our master bedroom is one of the rooms that looks the most drastically different. We were able to take out all the built ins (which allowed for extra space), added wood floors and a fireplace. Here are the before… And the after… We still need to finish decorating the room, but the bigger items are complete which I consider a win for now. I have a bed to sleep in and dresser drawers for my clothes so it is live-able. With the wood floors, I knew a rug was a must so that was one of the first decorative items I was searching for. I fell in love with this rug because of the vibrant colors and the design was fun. With the dozens of colors, most sheets and throw pillows will match. Also, this is the bedroom set we got which was super affordable and the headboard is gorg! I like to live in space awhile before I finalize all the decorating (it feels so final to me) so now I’m on the hunt for unique bed side table lamps and cozy sheets. Anyone have any good suggestions? Where do you like to shop for home décor? Cheers, Meg

Lord & Taylor sale finds

I try to visit Lord & Taylor every time we are visiting my husbands family. They have the best deals and then always have extra discounts when you get to the register. It isn’t the best shopping experience but if you go in ready to hunt, you will find some great deals & leave so happy! This last time I found some great staple pieces! Since having little Caroline, I have noticed my clothes just don’t fit the same and a lot of them I am not very comfortable in. So I am slowly building up a new wardrobe, everything shifts just a little here & there after a baby and the boobs…don’t even get me started. Nothing fits the same on top! All these pieces provide me the coverage I want with the cute style. More info & videos on our insta story. If you head over to shop these or any items from L&T online make sure to use code JUNE at checkout to get an extra 30% OFF!   Bell Sleeve Shift Dress   Cutest overalls Stripped button down tank Stripped Cotton BCBG Blazer Distressed Long Denim Jacket Happy Shopping!

Guest Blogger-Momma, Oil/Health Guru…Lesley Meyer

Becoming a mom has without a doubt been the best thing I have ever achieved (and am still working to achieve everyday). I say “achieved” because it is something that has taken a lot of effort, courage and patience. Without even considering the additional challenges that come with parenthood, like the ones that can come along with getting pregnant, not to mention LABOR; just being a parent that you are proud to be is an extraordinary challenge and achievement. Before I had a baby, I never really understood why everyone said raising children is the hardest job in the world. When I thought of something being “hard” I would think of something extremely physical or that required hours of studying, practicing, or learning about in order to achieve. While parenting does present some physical and mental challenges, I think the thing that makes it the hardest job in the world (which I now agree with) is that it is constant. You never get to walk away from it. Balancing the life you used to live before kids and your life now with kids can be tricky. Worrying about your kiddos every day hoping they are well fed with the BEST food, praying they don’t get sick, making sure they are learning and growing and happy while also trying to make sure you still get some quality time with your spouse and friends and family….it’s a lot. And for the working moms, that is a whole other ball game. It is […]

Saturday Snacking

As most of you know, we love our sweets! I (Kay) am also world’s biggest snacker. Skinny Dipped Almonds are my new sweet/snack obsession. Not only are they delicious and hit the spot for my sweet tooth, but they are also healthy. Who doesn’t love that combo? Made with real ingredients they have protein, fiber, organic finishes and dark chocolate. I’m starting to consider myself a health nut now that I’ve added these to my piggy habits ha. The story behind the brand is also amazing. Check it out here. The company was founded by a mom and daughter (any mothers dream) after a simple discussion on a long road trip about why chocolate covered almonds have so much chocolate on them. And, just like that – their company was born. They set off to create an almond that was lightly dipped in chocolate hence the name skinny dipped. The almonds are also dusted with either cocoa, raspberry, and dark chocolate. My favorite is the raspberry, Meg’s favorite is the dark chocolate and Chet loves the cocoa (Dewey is allergic to almonds so he couldn’t give his opinion). Clearly, all the flavors are so tasty! As we are running around each day, Skinny Dipped Almonds are something we always have in the diaper bag, in our desk drawer, car and/or purse to quickly eat on the go to satisfy our hunger. Check out the site here and purchase yourself a few packs to get you through your busy day –  so […]

Must Have Baby Items- Add Them to Your Registry NOW!

Katelyn’s Must-Have Baby Items (That Meg, Luke & Caroline 100% agrees with, pics are the proof) When you are having your first baby, the list of items that you need can be pretty overwhelming! I remember trying (key word trying) to do my registry and I didn’t even know where to start! Luckily, my sister and bestie Lesley took over per usual and did my registry for me. In hopes to help those soon to be mamas out there that don’t have a sister or Lesley to knock it out for them, here are 8 items I could not live without since Lucas has arrived! The Julien Canvas Set – Leader Bag  Price: $195 Why I Love It: Not only is it a cute stylish diaper bag, it’s super practical when it comes to the design to help you be as organized as possible. It has various compartments (who knew you would need so much stuff for such a small human when on the go) to easily and quickly find what you need. It also includes a little clutch for the changing pad, diapers, wipes so you can just grab that for a short walk, etc. Lastly, it has straps that allows you to safely hang from your stroller. 4moms® mamaRoo® Baby Swing Price: $249.99 Why I Love It: Because it gives my arms a break!! Lucas loves to be moving so this has been our saving grace when he needs to nap for more than 10 minutes or I […]

The Perfect Little Flower Top

I ordered this Free people top not too long ago from Revolve, they are currently sold out of most sizes! But I found it on major sale, here and here (about 50% off) and they still have a size small (which is what I am wearing in the pics). I love the flower pattern and the dainty details of the cut. The only thing with this top, is it is short so I have to wear something high waisted with it, otherwise has a crop top feel to it. I paired it with a high-waisted maroon suede skirt (similar), a denim skirt would be super cute too or high-waisted jean shorts. Anyways, the top is light weight but you don’t have to wear a tank underneath which is nice & perfect for the summer months upon us. Lastly, I threw on my favorite  everyday sandals and was off for some errands. I bought this shirt full price and still think it was worth it but so glad I found it almost 50% off…yeeehawww! Cheers, Meg & Kay

Flowers for Momma!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Mommas out there! Cheers to you….we hope you have a relaxing weekend planed for yourself! If you are anything like us you are focusing more on spoiling your own mom and making her day special and forgetting that the day is also about you. Our mom loves loves flowers…they make her super happy so part of her gift is always a huge bouquet. We use to always spend $$$ at florists until we realized that we could do it ourself & they still look pretty damn good, for less that half the cost! What we do is pick 4 bunches of flowers from Trader Joe’s, usually two larger flowers (roses, hydrangeas, peonies etc.) & two bundles of fillers (small daisies, baby breathe, leafy greens) and we like to make sure all four are different but coordinating in colors. Pick up a cute cheap clear circular vase at target to put them in (or this metallic one is super cute too), therefor it matches with everything and the big bundle will fill it out well. Cut them all around the same length and then just start filling in , we usually mix the two larger flowers together first and set them in the center then slowly fill in sides will filler flower and mix in. Other option is making a few smaller bouquets so your mom can put them all around the house, we use ball jars with the same technique! (see below). We […]
