A Full Recap of Los Angeles with the Littles

I can’t wait to share more about why we were in L.A. in the coming months but it was such a treat to take the kids to L.A. twice in the past year (you can see our trip this past summer right here.) Stepping out of the airport to see that periwinkle blue sky and dry heat on your skin is pure gold. This was a bit of a work trip but we always manage to sneak in trips to our favorite spots.

February Favorites Video

Here we are, friends! The first monthly installment of my favorites videos is live and I’m giddy about the fact that I’m jumping into video with both feet. The sound quality is pretty poor, it’s not edited all fancy and I’ve got some work to do but man does it feel good to just start something new-even if it’s imperfect. You can find everything I discuss in the video in the description box below it right here. 

The Best Sneakers for Spring



You don’t have to be a long-time reader to know I love me a good pair of sneakers. This is for three simple reasons: 1. I wear a size 12 shoe. The cute flats and cute shoes in general are rarely ever made in my size so years ago I just started buying mens shoes instead-specifically sneakers. 2. I have herniated discs in my back as well as intense varicose veins which make heels super painful and technically, I’m not supposed to wear them at all. 3.

Sure, we all need a good sneaker to workout in. But I mean one or two really cool pairs of sneakers to wear with everything. Here are my favorite picks for Spring:

How to Get Out of the Lunch Rut



Lunch. There was a time in my life where I just ate a bar and called it a day but the more I learn about my health, the more I realize how important it is to have a balanced meal midday. This is, of course, easier said than done seeing as lunch either falls in the middle of my workday where I’m running around and hustling to get it all done before school pickup OR I’m homeschooling and the kids are underfoot asking for their own lunch as well. Here are the tips I’ve implemented over the past years of motherhood to make sure lunch happens and that it’s simple, easy to grab-and-go and delicious every time.

Updated Day in the Life



“What does your daily routine look like?” Quite possibly the number one question in my inbox and, to be honest, the question I want to ask every mama I meet. I started the series Day in the Life for that very reason-because there is something almost thrilling about getting a peek into the schedule of women who work for themselves. You can catch up on all past guest posts in this series here but for now, this is what my routine looks like on a day-to-day basis.
