Ethan and I are coffee lovers. We love going out to get a latte, drinking coffee at home, and even going on morning coffee dates when the kids stay the night at the grandparents house. One of the best purchases we have ever made was our Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine. I’ve talked about this glorious machine before and totally recommend it to EVERYONE! It’s saved us so much money and all of our family and friends love it when they come over. Read more
Thank you guys so much for participating in my Q&A! I got a lot of fun questions and I love getting to know everyone so it’s a different and exciting being on the other side of it. If you missed being a part of this Q&A series I think I’ll start doing these quarterly to get some of the messages and DMs I get pretty often out there for everyone.
What a great way to start the New Year! Talking about my littlest little! 2017 has been one wild ride for this family but I wouldn’t change a thing. Especially this little guy. Kaizer has been so fun and sweet. Everyone just loves him. He’s a big boy with a big personality. He’s trying to talk and thinks it’s fun to stand. Here is his latest update.
Weight: 14lbs 8oz
Height: 23 1/2″
Sleeping Patterns: I’ve noticed he’s been waking up quite a bit more but I can’t tell if it’s because he has an upset stomach or if he’s really hungry.
Eating Habits: Still just nursing but will probably be introducing solids here soon
New Foods: Just breastfeeding still.
New Discoveries: He’s been talking up a storm and has found his voice.
Accomplishments: Kaizer has been holding his head up and trying to sit up from laying down. He’s rolling over from from to back.
Places We’ve Been: We went to Prescott. Stayed over night in Las Vegas.
Special Memories: Just his sweet little laugh and lots of big snuggles!
From starting the year off finding out I was pregnant to celebrating a 1st birthday, a 3rd birthday, my 27th birthday, and Ethan’s 31st birthday, to having my third boy. Really diving into blogging, after I wasn’t as tired anymore, to just loving my family. We have truly been blessed with another healthy year. So lets start this off with my top posts of 2017.

These little guys right here are the most important things to me! It is NEVER too early to start thinking about our childrens education. I know for us we want our kids to go to school and putting money away now is our best bet. If we want to someday be able to afford to put all three boys through college this is where we need to start. If you don’t know what to get your kids or grandkids this holiday season, think of their future and helping them put money away for for their education! Read more
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a gift guide for toddler that aren’t toys and it was actually a big hit. I had a lot of DMs, texts, and comments about what a great idea those were that I thought I would do a little stocking stuffer list because I mean come on. I still don’t want toys in the stockings either. This year we already purchased one toy for each kid, and that’s it! So what else can you give them you ask? I compiled a list of small items you can put in their stocking as well that are still going to be useful and not extremely clutterly.
Every kid needs a new pair of shoes. Mine run through theirs like they’re going out of style so they get new shoes at least every six months. (and sometimes every month in between.)
For some reason my kids love getting sunglasses but ALWAYS, with out fail, break them! So I always have extra on hand and they love them!
A fun or silly pair of socks
My boys love those crazy socks! They think it’s so funny to see dogs on their toes and bulldozers pushing dirt.
I know, I know..who really wants a toothbrush for christmas! But what if you got a fun one that was their favorite character that literally had all of the bells and whistles that made them excited to brush their teeth.
This sounds funky but my kids love wearing theirs. It also is perfect to keep next to their bed if the power ever goes out they have their own light to get around.
We call these “Kellans School Work”. Tracing the letters and numbers is something he’s really in to right now. He loves practicing his school work and learning
My kids love taking their vitamins everyday. They actually remind me that they need them! Getting a new one in their stocking is the perfect idea and it’s practical that I know they will love!
I’m so excited to post this but a little nervous! I had a lot of awesome feedback about my makeup that I did for our Christmas pictures. If you haven’t seen them and don’t know what the heck I’m talking about you can go check them out right here. So I filmed my very first makeup tutorial! If you’re interested in learning how I did my makeup click the video below and if you’re looking for what items I used I have them all linked below! Read more
