The Start Of Fall + TART Collections Fall Line

Hey ladies! Happy FALL, im loving this chilly weather this week, the wind, the rain this morning, all of it! We have been hitting every pumpkin patch in the area since October 1st and cant get enough of all of the fun festivities. Im convinced October might be one of the best months for kiddos with all of the fun activities available, there are carnivals, pumpkin patches that offer rides, games, face painting, picking pumpkins, etc, carving pumpkins, apple picking making pies, and cant forget costumes and trick or treating. Its an eventful month thats for sure. Im so excited to go into this holiday season with my two little people, Layla is old enough to get to enjoy every little bit, and Cash is already talking about Christmas! With that said i've partnered with Tart Collections to share their Fall 2016 line with you all! I love Tart, i've wore their stuff in the past and the quality is so great, it holds up even after a zillion washes because being a mom of two my clothes are always a mess at the end of they day. See below!

Summers Ending

Summers Ending:


I love living in Southern California, we have pretty smooth transitions season to season and for that im so grateful. I think it would be harder to let go of summer if i knew we were headed towards freezing cold weather where you dont want to leave being bundled up on the couch with hot cocoa. Im an outdoorsy girl and i get cabin fever pretty quickly, so the weather here is perfect for us. It gets just cold enough to wear sweaters and sip on cocoa but its also warm enough to be back at the beach by January and get away with wearing flip flops all year round if you wanted to.   Summer is now coming to an end in the next couple of weeks and Fall is just around the corner. Im excited for a new season and all thinks pumpkin and all the fun that the holidays bring, especially now having two kiddos that will reap all of the benefits.

Summer is always my favorite season and always feels the shortest. These next couple weeks we'll be sure to be soaking in the last of our beach days for a while and enjoying the sunshine.  Our anniversary is also coming up, September 22 and we are trying to think of something fun to do with the kids and also alone together.  Let me know if you guys have any fun ideas?! Also what is your favorite season and why?

Life Lately

A little Life LATELY

Life is good, really really good. BUSY, but just how you'd expect it to be with 2 babies who are less than 2 years apart. LoL. These two littles keep me going non stop all day long but they are the best gifts we could've ever asked for and im so so thankful God has chosen me to be their mama. Summer has been a blast, living outdoors with the exception of naps. I hope you all have been having a great summer as well!

 Birthday date night at Vine in San Clemente with my husbands side of our family

This past Tuesday we saw Adele at the Staples Center in LA and myyyy goodness that lady can sing. I mean her voice alone made this the best show we've ever been to.  I could feel the music throughout my body it was so intense and incredible. I highly recommend seeing her in concert if you ever get a chance.

 ^^^heartthrob.. im in trouble.^^^^

^^^ Swim lessons for this summer just began and this kid is kiiiiiiiilling it. Im so proud of him, we attempted this at 19 months and he wasnt comfortable yet, so im so glad now that hes just turned 3 he actually enjoys it now and is picking up on it quickly.^^^^

 ^^^Honestly when theyre playing together it makes me long for 6 babies. lol, not gunna happen but im just sayin its pretty much an instant heart warmer and makes me melt^^^^

 ^^^He really is wonderful with her, sharing, kissing, hugging, playing, and even tortures her sweetly, perfect big brother status right there.^^^
 ^^^sweetest and cutest ring bearer and flower girl in the universe at our friends wedding at the end of July.^^^^

 ^^^Meet Mowgli, our sweet little kitty. He was Cash's early 3rd birthday gift and we are all smitten with this guy^^^^

 ^^^On an adventure every single day with these two. At the end of our beach hike this guy insisted on being carried too, which was a hilarious sight to people passing by (see below).^^^

^^^Sometimes when packing for 3 people for vacation, mom forgets your socks (whoops)^^^

 ^^^Finding fun things to do in arrowhead, like using a ping pong paddle to play baseball^^^

^^^5 months ago.... 9 months old here. I might melt in half! ugh my heart!^^^

^^^Pretty much what summer has looked like every day^^^^
