• My forever Valentine. 💗 Love of my life. Man of my dreams. Baby daddy. 😉 I love you, I love you, I love you. || Spent today dropping the big kids at school, breakfast in the car, a dentist appointment (and two fillings, yay! 🤪), shopping at Marshalls, praying for car naps (2 out of 3, not bad!), dinner at home with our wild little ones, tag teaming bath time and bedtime. It was terribly mundane, shouldn’t have been that exciting or fun, filled with lots of little stressors. But somehow, it was really fun. (Maybe not the dentist so much, but... 😉) And it’s because we were together. So that’s the thing. Find someone who you can have fun with, even when what you’re doing isn’t supposed to be fun. Because life is full of un-fun moments. But when you can find someone to enjoy the heck out of every aspect of life? Well, that, is something. 🥰
  • Can we talk about how BIG Ollie looks here?! 😭😫 Who told him it was okay to get so big, huh?! 😉 Love him. 😍 Speaking of love, V Day is tomorrow- I’m going to the dentist (hooray!) and then we're just staying in and having a dinner at home after the kids are in bed. 🙌🏻 Try to avert your eyes away from the cute baby for a second (I know, it’s impossible) to see my gorgeous new @victoriaemersondesign bracelets ✨ I shared my favorite picks from their Valentines Day sale in today’s blog post (link in bio) and in stories! 💕 (ad) #victoriaemerson
Do you have any fun V Day plans? Staying in totally counts. 👌🏻 http://liketk.it/2Kjp4 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • 9 months of Oliver. 🌿 He is officially army crawling alllll over the place. Pulled himself up to stand for the first time this week! Smiles all the time and is such a cheery happy little guy- but he makes you work for the giggles! 🥰 Looooooves to eat (peanut butter sandwich, snapea crisps and bananas are his favorites), is on a good nap schedule (and even does well when we have to skip his nap or prolong it... #3rdbabyprobs). Still has the best cheeks, chunky thighs and irresistible blue eyes. Says “dada” all day long, and loves to growl back and forth with us. 😂🐻 His favorite toys are blocks, the shape sorter and he loves his “baby faces” book. Can’t believe he’s 9 months already! 😭😍
  • Sophie’s new thing is to request that we “read a book we haven’t read before.” Every night. Thankfully, miraculously, and thanks to my generous retired-preschool-teacher aunt, it hasn’t been a problem, buuuut soon we are going to run out of “books we haven’t read before.” So. We’ve been checking tons of books out at the library! And it’s so great!
I took a hiatus from going to the library. Sounds silly, right? Last year some time, I was reminded about how amazing the library is. It was like a lightbulb moment- you can get endless free books! Always something new! Did I mention, it’s FREE?! And I was literally addicted to adding books to my holds list and taking Sophie to hang out in the library and check out our books. It was great. And then... I don’t know, I guess life got super busy and I stopped. 3 little ones can do that to a person. 🤪 And now, I’ve been thinking a lot about things that make me happy, and things I enjoy doing, and I was reminded: the library. I was also reminded of how long it’s been since I actually read a book for FUN. Which, seems sad, doesn’t it? So I immediately logged into my library account and added 50 books to my list. 🙃 Feels good. Lots of children’s books and some books for mama too. 🙌🏻 I’ll be adding my read to my “books” highlight if you’re interested? Have you read any good books lately? I’ll go first: I just finished To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before- it was super cute and a quick read. Bonus: there’s a movie on Netflix (also cute!) and it’s a trilogy! Currently reading the 2nd book. Okay, your turn! 💗  http://liketk.it/2Kci5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Kings game with some of my favorites! Such a fun night with my boo and BFF ❤️👯‍♀️🏀
  • Confession: just made my very first purchase from Athleta, and I’m now hooked. I’ve officially found my new favorite pair of leggings ever!! Think: Lulu Aligns, but slightly thicker and a bit more compression and POCKETS! 👯‍♀️ Did a little try on in my stories, and everything is saved and linked on the blog! Link in bio. 💗 My shoes are amazing too and currently on MAJOR sale for just $35! 🙌🏻 Oh, and I’ve been saying it wrong: it’s pronounced “Ath-letta” in case you’re wondering too. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ http://liketk.it/2K2oR #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • 38 weeks in/ 38 weeks out. ✨ I cannot believe it. I’ve carried you in my arms as long as I carried you inside of me. And the immense blessing and magnitude of both of those does not go unnoticed by me. 💛 So grateful to be your mama, little Oliver Lucca.
