Big Girl Bed // Zinus Mattress

First off, let me say, these photos I edited with my girl Elise’s presets, and they worked magic. This room is so dark, and her presets totally brightened up the room and kept everything true to its natural color. Look out for a discount code at the end of this blog, for her presets! ONLY FOUND HERE for all my loyal blog readers!

Okay you guys, I think Im most excited about this room in the house, because we have NEVER had a nursery. Both girls slept in our room up until this move to Indiana. And honestly, Claramae still sleeps in our room because I can’t bring myself to sleep train just yet. But Adaline was definitely showing signs of being ready for a big girl bed, so we took the plunge and didn’t even bring her crib with us from california. SO when her mattress from Zinus showed up at our front door in this box I couldn’t wait to open it. So much so i didn’t even record the opening of it. Ive always wanted one of those mattresses that shows up in a box and you unwrap and it just expands, and i’m kicking myself for forgetting to record it! but oh well, these pictures definitely make up for it! SO enjoy the girls new room! Im in love with it, and I can’t wait to paint the walls and get the major wall covered in floral wall paper!

They have never had their own space before so this is HUGE. Adaline wakes up in the morning and plays in her kitchen! I can’t wait till we turn Claramaes crib into a toddler bed and they can wake up together and play and maybe I can sleep in! haha Okay, just kidding.

Claramae Turns 1

I can’t believe its been almost 4 months since Ive written a blog! I have been so busy with the move! Im sure you’ve seen on Instagram, but were setting in! I hope to get a house tour up on the blog soon! So sorry i’ve been slacking!

Before we moved in, we celebrated Claramaes birthday with friends and family back in California. So here are the photos that Everglow took and a video I made on the day! I can’t believe she will be 1 in 2 days. Im crying! It went by so so fast!

Since I always say Claramae is the season Fall wrapped up in one beautiful tiny face! So we had a super fall themed party! Carmel apple bar, popcorn bar, potpies (not pictured) Apple Cider, Hot chocolate and other fall treats. As always, my mom took my vision and ideas in my head and made them happen in real life. Not sure what I would do without her! And the rest of my family. We miss them so much and are counting down the days until we are reunited with them all! <3 Love and miss you guys.

Coffee Shop Dates || #TheDailyMoments

My last blog post was almost 2 months ago, and it was one of "The Daily Moments" posts that Stephanie Pollock started. You should check out her blog to see her weekly photos. They are simply beautiful and a great reminder to turn your normal daily moments into memories. You can check them out here. Im hoping once we get settled into our new place that we will be able to start these weekly! They are such a special treasure to have. 

These photos are actually taken by my friend Tarynne ( Everglow Photo) . We Went to Lido Village in Newport Beach. If you havent been you need to go and you need to go to Honor Coffee. The most beautiful coffee shop EVER! and INCREDIBLE mouth watering Chai Tea. Like the best Ive ever had...in my entire life. Go get some. 

Also the photos of Adaline in front of the VW bus are my favorite ever. Tarynne just took her over there and she straight up posed. Like she knew what to do! I need to get her into modeling. No joke. Girl can work a camera. And also the impromptu photo shoot of her at the flower market with The French Bucket was adorable! I Die! Tarynne, you are incredible. And I love you, and I cant wait to have you visit. 

Now Ill stop rampling and let you enjoy these timeless photos.

Custom Made Sandals by Sseko

You guys! This is by far one of my favorite products I'm sharing about. But if you don't mind Id like to give a little back ground about how I got involved with Sseko. About 8 years ago I attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta. My two best friends during that semester was my girl Jessica who I drug with me from Indiana and this guy we met named Patrick. Now if you knew Patrick, then your life was so enriched by his goofy smile, his love for everyone, and those Toms that he wore until the fronts had ripped off and his toes were hanging out. They were pretty much inseperable and I was forever third wheeling it. Unfortunately a little over a year later, Patrick went home to be with the Lord. His death was unexpected and shook the campus. He truly caused a revolution in so many hearts and lives. When his family came out for the service and to meet all of us at the bible college, I connected with his sister in law Eliza. We became friends on social media and have virtually share in the trials and joys of motherhood together. 

Eliza reached out to me and shared the mission statement behind Sseko. Listen to this, 

5A9A6070.jpg
Sseko Designs provides employment to women in Uganda during the 9 month gap between high school and university where high potential young women are able to earn and save enough money to pay for college tuition. 50% of their salary each month goes into a savings account that is not accessible until tuition is due. This ensures that their income goes towards education. This also protects the women in our program from the social pressure they often feel from their families to give away the money the are earning which can perpetuate the cycle of poverty. At the end of each term, Sseko Designs grants university scholarships that match 100% of the savings each woman has made during her 9 month session with Sseko.

HOW FLIPPIN COOL!  Patrick and I had gone on a few mission trips together and we had actually talked about both of us wanting to go to Uganda. So in a way this kind of feels like he is apart of this. Leave it to Patrick to still be causing change and empowering people through his death. Cant wait to rock out to T-swift with you again man. <3

Back to the Product

Adaline's lace up sandals were a big hit and I still get messages about them. So if you're wanting to custom make your own babe sandals or just spoil your self then this is for you!. 

5A9A6064.jpg

 I struggled long and hard on which design I wanted to bring to life. And i have to say these sandals are inspired by my girls. Eliza helped me immensely since we are on different sides of the country. Countless texts and face times to show me the swatches and what colors compliment each other.  * Side note, if you have a fellow in your area you can meet with them in person instead of FaceTime. So after about weeks of brain storming ideas and picking colors and platforms and designs i settled on these beauties. The top foot strap is a rose gold for my newest little rosy girl. And the pink base is a blush color for Adaline because 1. Its pink and she's everything I dreamed of for my first girl, and 2. because her love for life and people truly makes me blush. Cheesy? probably but i don't care. 


Picking this design was so hard because there are sooooo many options. I went with the wedge because I'm 5'3 and can use the extra height.  But I'm definitely going to buy the original cross over sandals, and the travel bags, and the purses, and well everything. 

If you're interested in checking out any of there products you can do so here. And make sure to follow them on Instagram here 

As always these thoughts and words are my own, and I'm so grateful to stand behind such an amazing company and help support other women. All photos taken by Everglow Photo
