A GIVEAWAY WITH OLIVIA + OCEAN

Packing up the kids and heading to the beach, lake or pool, is one of my favorite ways to spend a summer day. While it might not be swim season in the PNW yet, it is the perfect time to pick out new swimsuits for my beach babes! Olivia + Ocean makes the cutest swimsuits around […]

LITTLE BITES: OUR 5 FAVORITE SMOOTHIE RECIPES

Smoothies might just be the best culinary creation ever to happen to motherhood. (Either that or baby food pouches, amiright?) The refreshing, slushy, delicious and lightly sweetened concoction is the best way I know to stuff my kids (even the pickiest one!) full of whole foods, healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and fiber.

HAPPY FAMILY TRAVEL: A SEAESTA IN SEABROOK

We’re back from our long weekend away with our friends Ryan and Emily and their 4 kids, in Seabrook Washington where we played and ate our way through a self-declared long weekend.

OUR VERY HOPPY EASTER WEEKEND!

The few weeks leading up to it, my mind and energy was being used for other life happenings… (the sorta things that come up when you have kids and careers and people in general in your life, but nothing earth shattering!) We unintentionally skipped egg […]

DIY EASTER BUNNY FACE PAINT + EARS

Aside from the spiritual significance of Easter, fluffy bunnies and egg hunts are my absolute favorite parts of celebrating the holiday. However, my kids are terrified of grownup sized bunnies with neckties and baskets (who could blame them) so this year I figured we could make our own simple costume using card stock, headbands, and a little face paint. […]

SPRING BREAK RECAP…

So, last week came in like a lamb and out like a lion which I guess is appropriate for Spring break :) We had lots of rainy days in the beginning so took it slow and had a lot of dance parties. But then the sun decided to join us so we were able to […]

SHARED SPACES: HOME OFFICE + PLAYROOM IDEAS

We’ve been loving and using our dining room so much since the room refresh that I’m feeling ready and inspired to start another one! This time we’ll be sprucing up my office while bringing in a few more of the kids’  toys and turning it into a shared office and mini playroom. The office has a couple things going […]
