Our impulse Buy: 1970’s A Frame Cabin

January 20, 2018

I believe some of the greatest things I’ve done have happened when I’ve followed my gut. Reid, the kids, and I visited Lake Arrowhead all but twice and made an offer on a 1970’s A-frame on our second visit. The next day, we were told the sellers accepted the offer and found ourselves in the midst of the home buying process. Living in LA, I was and still am nervous about living an hour and a half away and getting…

Our Family Getaway: Rancho Mirage

January 19, 2018

  We had the opportunity last week to go as a family to The Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage in Palm Springs.  The brand ASbyDF invited us to stay for two nights and feature some of their gorgeous new arrivals. Needless to say, it was a beautiful desert getaway with so many amenities and natural beauty surrounding us. To name a few, the separate kids pool and adults vista pool, the spa (I got a facial) , Reid hit the gym and club…

What We Wore Sunday/Shopbop Sale

January 9, 2018

Sunday’s are always a mad dash to get to church by 9am, but it also happens to be one of my favorite days. Hubby usually makes pancakes or puffed pancakes, we bond over meals together, something mid week is lacking, and go to church, usually out for lunch than hang at home or take a nap. The house is usually exceptionally messy and we have popcorn for dinner, but that’s okay one day a week right? I linked our outfits…

Managing Devices for my Kids

December 19, 2017

  Every parent will face this question whether your child is two or twelve: How much screen time is too much? Reid and I have struggled with it lately with all four kids gravitating to the iPad and begging to use our laptops to play games. Its a HUGE struggle! A couple computer games like typing class, ABCYA, (and I’m open to hear your suggestions) are educational and great for kids. But countless studies have come out about the negative…

Tips: Shopping for Men Made Easy

November 10, 2017

  I’ll be honest, I usually find it terribly difficult to shop for men, namely my husband, Reid, and my dad. Something about trying to find an item they won’t already have or an idea out of the box – whereas women are so simple in this way. Give us a bag or jewelry and chances are we’ll be happy.   But I will say, over the years, I’ve realized the key is to buying something men actually use or…
