The Scott Resort & Spa

One of the things I love about living near Scottsdale, Arizona is the abundance of incredible restaurants, shopping and resorts. We love planning “stay-cations” in Scottsdale every few months to get away! A few weekends ago, we had to go to Phoenix for Deuce’s PCH appointments, so we made a weekend out of it! The Scott Resort & Spa was kind enough to host us and we had an amazing weekend. We ate breakfast at the resort restaurant and spent the rest…

Summer Clothing For Kids {with Kohl’s}

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. Summer is HERE!! At least it is in Arizona. Temperatures are already in the 100’s and we are melting faster than you can say “let’s go to the pool!” When it comes to dressing the kids for summer weather, it’s all about balance. You need clothing that’s play-proof and durable for those endless summer activities, but still cute enough that you’re not sacrificing style for comfort. At Kohl’s, you don’t have to make that…

Our Playroom Reveal

It’s been a little over two months since we moved into our new house and we have been working on each room slowly. A little slower than I had intended, lol. But it’s coming along and I am so excited to share one of my favorite rooms in the entire house… the playroom! We didn’t really have a “theme” for the playroom. I just wanted it to be bright and fun and functional for the kids. I love how it…

Jumping On The Bed

One of my goals as a mom this year has been to be a sillier mom. That sounds weird, right? What does that even mean? Well, I’ll explain it to you. Sometimes I take this motherhood gig a little too seriously. I’m mad that the kids spilled milk on the carpet, I’m mad that they won’t pick up their toys and I’ve asked 10 times already, I’m irritated that they are fighting over the 50 cent toy from McDonald’s when…

Easy + Meaningful Teacher’s Appreciation Gift

Let’s be honest, teachers deserve a lot more than one week to celebrate how hard they work and all they do for the next generation. They deserve a million bucks and a trip to the Bahama’s, but that’s a little bit out of my price range. My mom is a principal, so I know firsthand how important teachers are to everyone – not just parents. My mom approached me a few weeks ago and wanted to do something really special and fun for…

A Little Family Update

Hey friends! It’s been a while since I posted a little family update and it seemed like the perfect time to do so. Yesterday, we took Deuce for a check up and his doctor let us know that his condition has progressed, so he will be seeing his neurosurgeon and plastic surgeon again in the next few weeks. We will also be seeing an optometrist. Besides all that, he’s literally the sweetest and we are so obsessed with him and…
