I can’t believe how many requests I’ve received from all of you about essential oils! I don’t really share essentials on any of my social media platforms but we do use them in our home. I had someone specifically request a list of fall essential oil combos and I thought that was a great idea! I do tend to use essential oils more in the winter so sharing our favorite combos is easy!
I’ve had a huge outpour of interest in making my DIY wooden headboard! I think most of you were shocked at how cheap it was to make yourself and trust me when I say I was just as shocked! I’ve been looking everyone to buy one including big furniture stores and even our local Ross and they all seemed extremely pricey. The cheapest one I found was still running about $145. The crazy part is, I made mine for under $55! 52.31 to exact!!!
If you’ve followed along on my Instagram account for the last month then you know we’ve turned our mother-in-law suite into an Airbnb. This has been so much better then we could have ever expected! I never in a million years would have thought that this could be a real source of income for us. We live in a small town but surprisingly we have been so busy. I came up with a list of a few items I think are a must to get your room, house, or rental property ready for Airbnb guests.
We’ve had such a busy week/weekend with both Kaizer and Ethan having labor day weekend birthdays! BUT this is my favorite time to take full advantage and stock up on some of the awesome deals that are happening. So I had some of you ask what deals that I would be shopping and I thought I would round up some of my favs that are going on!

My baby is 11 months old! Oh my gosh! It makes me want to cry just thinking about him being 1. I feel like it was just last week that Ethan and I were driving to the hospital getting ready to have him to then being surprised by a c-section with this wild child of mine. This has been one of the most tiring, trying, and BEST years of my life. Having 3 kids 3 and under is no joke but I’m glad to have these three little monkeys. So here is Kai’s 11 month update.
Hasn’t changed much because he’s been basically running around the last month.
Thankfully still sleeps all night long.
He’s a porky pig. Eats all day.
Pretty much anything at this point. He loves peanut butter sandwiches, apples, and crackers.
Kissing. He is the biggest kisser around!
He high-fives, climbs on everything, loves doing summersaults, and fights with his brothers.
Places We’ve Been:
We went camping at Oak Creek Canyon and stopped in Flagstaff.
Is is one of the biggest pains in my butt butI still love his silly smile and big teeth.
In case you missed it
Today marks a momentous time in our lives because Kellan is at his first day of Preschool! I just can’t believe it! Time is just going way too fast for me and my mama heart CAN NOT take it anymore. A very small part of me thought I was going to cry today dropping him off, I’m proud to announce I did not shed one tear. In fact, I came home and was totally fine. I don’t want to admit it but I’ve gotten A LOT done around the house because Knox is sleeping and Kaizer has just been entertaining himself.
This is how Kellan’s first day of Preschool started.
We left early to pick up some school shirts someone had given us.
We stopped at grandmas work to say hi.
We then stopped at Safeway to pick up something plates and napkins we were
supposed to bring to the class.
I wanted to take him to lunch since it was his first day and he insisted we eat chicken legs
from the deli and we ate at the park next to his school.
After eating lunch we headed over to his school and waited out front for Ethan.
We took a few pictures and walked him to class.
He got to take a picture with his teach and hang his backpack up and started playing.
Ethan and I left and we were good to go.
While we were eating lunch I asked him a few questions and these were his answers.
What is your name?
How old are you?
What is your teachers name?
WHat’s your favorite color?
Blue and red
What’s your favorite activity?
Do bike rides and running stuff
Who is your best friend?

I don’t know, a lego builder/lego master
What’s your favorite food?
Chicken legs and hamburgers
What do you think you’ll do while you’re at school?

Apple cider, carrot juice, and Kombucha
My super smart, loving, caring, and very adventurous boy, I know you will do great things and become the best master lego builder around! I love you!
Where the heck has another month gone! My baby is 10 freaking months old! We almost have ourselves a 1 year old and I seriously can’t take it! It’s crazy to think these are all of the last moments we’ll experience with a baby and I’m trying to soak it all in while I can. A very small part of me is getting that baby fever again and I have to tell myself to get real and mentally slap myself!
