Truman wore army pant joggers, so I wore army pant joggers 😜 He’s a total trendsetter (haha!) But really… How fun it is to match your babies?! I’m pretty much obsessed. I’m also obsessed with camo pants and am so excited they are making a BIG comeback this fall. I snagged these joggers about a month ago and seriously had the hardest time deciding which pair I wanted to get! They are all so cute, but I ultimately loved the relaxed fit of these. They are super comfy yet extremely stylish and a serious STEAL! I love how they look paired with a heel, but have also worn them with sneakers & love that look, too! I will have to post that look soon so you can all see how truly transitional these pants can be. I think they are a must have to add to your wardrobe and a fun change to the traditional jean. Thanks so much for reading and for your constant support! Xoxo
It’s official… I’m totally craving fall! It’s still so freaking hot, so I can’t totally transition to fall yet… BUT a little layering here and there doesn’t hurt and gives me my fall fix for now. This dress from Ivy City Co is so comfy & easy to pair with different items to create different looks. I chose to keep it casual yet put together with a wedge. I love how it turned out & hope you do, too! I have been so sick this week and am finally feeling like myself again, so I’m headed to go meet up with some girlfriends for lunch. I hope you all have a great Thursday & remember, tomorrow is FRIYAY! Woot, woot! Xo

And just like that my baby is nearly 14 months old… & has an opinion (& attitude) of his own! He’s definitely not a baby anymore. My toddler(😱) is going through a funny little stage where he wants to eat what he wants when he wants it. He loves to tell me “no” and shake his head when I try getting him to eat something he’s just not feeling that day. It’s pretty hilarious, but not so funny after I’ve spent a good 20 minutes preparing his healthy little meals! Well, for this shoot we picked up a mid morning treat and obviously he had NO problem whatsoever eating those delicious donuts.. But really, can you blame him?! I “donut” think I need to guess your answer to that question😉 Although I want to pull my hair out at times, I love how expressive, fun, and busy Tru is! I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Plus, I’ve always heard that naughty babies are the cutest ones (we’ll keep telling ourselves that!). #thestruggleisreal ….Seriously.
Hi loves!! I’m sure many of you have heard of Brickyard Buffalo– I have been a big fan and reader of them for quite sometime now! So, needless to say when I was contacted about being a guest editor for them, I was ecstatic!
Brickyard Buffalo is an online pop-up market that showcases on trend items at budget friendly prices (can you say #ballinonabudget ?!) Guest editors work with BB to share some great products! Below I will highlight a few of my picks, but the rest can be found on Brickyard Buffalo, so definitely make sure to check them out! There’s so many fun items from things to wear, baby/toddler items, accessories, decor, & so much more! I hope you love what we’ve come up with & definitely let me know what your fav items are from this week!. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a fabulous week! Xoxo
1. Shopbando. Tumbler – I am such a sucker for cute tumblers, water bottles, or mugs! This one is seriously SO dang cute- I LOVE IT!! #kittensgetthirstytoo
2. Sweet T’s Designs Weekend Baseball Tee- There’s nothing better than a comfy baseball tee & this one is perfect for weekend wear. I love all Of Sweet T’s tops, but this one is definitely my favorite!
3. BB Grid Top- I love this modern grid top from BB this week! The black and white pattern is perfect and I love that I can pair this top in so many different ways. It’s also a perfect transitional piece for fall!
4. Chevron Taudrey Necklace- It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Taudrey jewelry. I love all of their dainty necklaces. They look beautiful alone or stacked to create that super fun layered look! This one is a perfect addition to add to your jewelry collection.
5. nena + co Vintage Beach Bag & delmex Mexican Blankets – These items are so awesome! I love nena + co bags and this one is the perfect and unique “throw everything in” bag! Also, the patterns are just absolutely beautiful! I especially love this company because they employ artisans from Guatemala, (where my baby brother is currently serving a church mission) providing Guatemalan mothers with honorable incomes and time to care for their children as they work from home. This company truly has a special place in my heart! Another favorite are the delmex blankets, they are soooo pretty! We love them to throw in our trunk to take to the park or beach. We use them in so many different ways and they are definitely a family favorite
A few things on my mind:
Lately everyone has been asking when we will start trying for baby #2… Um what?! I still have a baby. He’s only one! So for all of those wondering… No plans for another baby any time soon😜. I love what Tru & I have going on and I have no intentions of changing that for a while.
I had to get that out of the way before I mention that our little family has some exciting things happening in the next month! I hate when people say that & then don’t say what the actual news is, buuuuuttt… I don’t want to jinx it! So, for now, my lips are sealed. 😁
Today Truman and I are off to SLC for some work for me! I feel so lucky that I can take this cute boy everywhere with me. Truman will get to see his grandparents & cousins and have so much fun while I am working. We also get to see my sister, who just moved up to SLC where she will be attending the University of Utah! I can’t believe she is in COLLEGE… I still think of her as my teeny baby sis! After our visit to SLC, we will road trip it to Vegas with my mama and spend a week there! I love seeing family and can’t wait to share some of my trip with all of you! Xo
Sunday’s are one of my favorite days of the week! I love getting dressed up and going to church to be spiritually uplifted, inspired, and prepared for the new week. I also love getting Tru all dolled up and ironing his little clothes. Church is not easy with a one year old, but so very worth it! Also, I die at how cute he looks in these pics! I love those baby blues of his.
I am in love with my pretty dress from Chicwish. They have tons of gorgeous dresses and skirts! I especially love this one because it is not only beautiful, but so comfortable. If you are in need of some new dresses, definitely check out their site! Aaaand a major plus is that their clothing is super affordable–double win!! Now I’m off to take on my busy Monday of packing and preparing to leave town for a couple of weeks! I’m so excited for this trip and love getting travel with my little besty, Tru babe! I hope you all have a wonderful day! Xoxo
First things first- how cool is this wall we found in downtown Houston?! We’ve been going exploring around our new town every weekend & find awesome stuff each time. We are starting to really get into our routine here and are loving our little life here.
Now let’s talk about this skirt + tee combo! Since it’s still SO freaking hot, I love wearing easy, breezy skirts or dresses. I absolutely LOVE this one, especially because you can easily dress it up or down. I paired it with my fav simple white tee(seriously the best and on SALE now so I & just ordered a few others in some different colors)! It was the perfect easy outfit to go out exploring with my family & it kept me cool & put together. I hope you are all having a wonderful and cool week! Xxx
I am a total product junkie & absolutely love to try out new products! I was delighted to be able to try out Hair Shots and guys, guess what?! I absolutely LOVED them! So I’m guessing you’re wondering.. “What are hair shots?!” Hair Shots were created by a woman named Amy Lance who was inspired to create something in which would keep hair smelling good & fresh! Hair Shots are perfume fragrances which are heat activated. This means that as you are active, the scent intensifies. Ummm, hello #GENIUS !!! I am always on the look out for products that keep my hair fresh and clean feeling AND smelling delightful. Not only am I very active, but I also live in Houston where it is hot and suuuuper humid. I’ve tested these out for two weeks now because I really wanted to give my honest opinion on them and see how they worked for me and they are now officially on my list of must-haves!
Hair Shots come in 9 amazing scents. My personal favorites are cotton candy & coconut mango- they smell SO divine! I also love that I can choose a scent to match my mood. If I’m not feeling fruity or sweet, something like Bamboo or Asian Green are a nice change. After getting out of the shower, I spray in my normal leave in conditioners + three sprays of a Hair Shots scent and then let it air dry. I also spray a few times on my dry hair before the gym or going out. I was so impressed with how well these babies work! The scents are so yummy- not overwhelming, but strong enough to give your locks a fresh delightful scent. Hair Shots are now definitely a staple in my beauty cabinet/gym bag and I’m so extremely happy I was able to test it out and share the great news with you! This product is growing popularity fast and has been featured in many of my favorite magazines like: SHAPE, US WEEKLY, & FITNESS ! I highly recommend that you try this product out, so that you can have delicious smelling hair all the time too! Cheers to Head Shots and amazing smelling hair!! Xoxo
Days like today make me realize how truly blessed I am! I have the best job in the world- being a mama to the sweetest soul. Truman is the best baby and I could not be luckier! He is always on the go and such a busy boy, but today was different. He is teething and the only thing that made him happy was cuddling with me all day. He literally did not want to leave my side and was totally happy & content just sitting with me, occasionally holding my hand. It was heart melting and I couldn’t help but just feel completely happy. My heart is so full today! I love this boy so much and thank my Heavenly Father every day for sending me the sweetest blessing. When Sid got home from work, we ran a couple of errands & ended the night at the park. Truman loves the park and leaves exhausted, ready for a bath + bed! Sometimes the simplest days make for the best ones… I was able to truly enjoy and take in every moment with my son and it was the best ever. I love you Tru babe!

Last weekend we decided to go somewhere we hadn’t been to in Houston! We visited The Biscuit Paint Wall and it was so fun! Truman was LOVING all the colors. He also couldn’t help himself and flirted with all of the girls there taking pictures 😉 it was pretty hilarious!
We also had the chance to try out these Líllé Baby carriers! We had been looking for a better carrier and these are seriously so awesome! Truman was soo comfortable AND so were we. The wide and padded shoulder straps and waist belt help distribute the baby’s weight evenly, making it super comfortable to carry. I also love the Líllé Baby COMPLETE carrier because it can be used 6 different ways to carry your baby safely and it grows with your baby. These carriers can be used from 7-45 lbs. I am also LOVING their new embossed collection and am obsessed with this fun citrus color. It’s seriously such a pretty carrier and so easy to use, which is a MUST! I definitely recommend these carriers and wish I would have found them sooner. Also, how attractive are babywearing dads?! I am obsessed.
After exploring and driving around, we decided to try a new place to eat! Niko Niko’s was SO GOOD guys! If you are in the area, definitely try it. It is a new fav of ours for sure! It was even #TrumanApproved Hope you are all having a great week. Thanks for reading! Xo
