Family fun at the Ventura County Fair


This past weekend, I was away for a couple of days at Blog Her conference. While I had a blast, I did feel bad about spending time away from my family. I declared Sunday would be family day! No matter how tired I was. That’s when we decided to take a trip to the Ventura […]

Fashionable & Safe necklaces for Toddlers from Chewbeads!


I remember walking into the PumpStation for a Breastfeeding support group class and falling in love with these colorful necklaces. As a new mom, you go from your typical fashion to at least a few days/weeks/months of yoga pants and t-shirts. Chewbeads was my way of adding a safe, fashionable item to wear. Chewbeads have […]

We’re Pregnant!

16 weeks

Hi everyone! I’ve been absent from my blog for quite a few months. Probably around four! That is because we are pregnant with baby #2! We’re all very excited but I waited to share because of the problems we were having. Also there is something about pregnancy after a year of loss that makes you […]

Marvel ties a Girls STEM contest to Captain America: Civil War

Mr Men & Little Miss collaboration with Baby Gap!

MMLM Baby Gap Banner

Pumpkin is a big book reader. We read books every morning, throughout the day, and to end the night. I love it. We recently went to a used book store because I wanted to see if they had any Mr Men or Little Miss books. Unfortunately they didn’t. I must have owned all of these […]

New Year at Discovery Cube LA


Ever since becoming a parent, I can barely stay up late enough to celebrate New Year’s Eve. I can’t even imagine trying to keep Pumpkin up to celebrate. Which is why it’s brilliant that Discovery Cube LA hosts a Balloon Drop event so that everyone can celebrate a New Year together. While this event has […]

My 2016 Word of the year is


For the past few years, I have created a Word of the Year inspired by my friend at ThisTalkAin’tCheap. Last year my Word of the Year was Fabulous. I was hoping that would be a reminder to constantly have fun and strive for the best version of myself and what I can do for my […]
