CHD Heart Awareness Day

With it being Congenital Heart Disease awareness month, and most specifically DAY today, Valentine’s Day we wanted to have Heart Mom Kierra here to share her story. Welcome, Kierra! Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect, with nearly one of every 100 babies born with a congenital heart defect – ranging from a small hole, to extremely complex. Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths, and the leading cause of all infant deaths in North America. More than 50% of all children born with congenital heart defect will require at least one invasive surgery … Read more

FRYday

So happy to see the weekend here! With Monday off + Valentine’s Day ahead we have no plans but taking it super easy. Here’s what we’re thinking about this week: NICOLE: I used to snowboard quite a bit when I was younger, but making the switch to skiing this season! I am loving it! Such an exciting way to get through these tough post-Christmas Winter months! WEARING: These overalls are slim fit and tuck right into my boots. Love the zipper options, too! I know I’ve shared it before, but this jacket is still perfect for all Wintry occasions. MOMMING IN: Loving … Read more

What I’m Taking With Me: Nicole

Last stop on our 2015 recap and what we’re bringing with us into 2016 is Nicole! For My Face: You can read up all about my nightly routine in this post, and taking that time for myself will be something I continue to do. I look forward to it so much! A few reminders, Riiviva’s Microdermabrasion Kit does absolute wonders and I love to cap it off and sleep in this Korres Rose Night Mask, smells amazing and is so great for dry Winters. For My Body: It might sound silly but an at-home Spray Tan Machine has been one of my favorite … Read more

FRYday: Taking It With Me 2016

Good morning! To sort of recap the last year for all of us, we are focusing the next few Frydays solely on things we discovered in 2015 that are so wonderful we’ll keep on using them in 2016. Whether it’s material or a more figurative gem, this is the best of our two thousand fifteens. Emily is up first! In 2016 I’m taking these things with me from last year … For my face: Proper exfoliating, something I hadn’t been doing often enough but have seen awesome results last year! Love this all-natural one, and if you don’t like it … Read more

FRYday

An especially happy Fryday to you all today! Today is the last day of school for Nicole and Emily’s boys which means the Holidays are officially beginning for all. Jenna made it yesterday to Turkey with her crew to see her parents who live in Istanbul and we couldn’t be more excited for her! Can’t wait for her recap! Here’s what’s on our minds this week: EMILY: Wearing: There are few times I love the internet more than when I am announcing a pregnancy. It makes it so fun! Thank you ALL for such kind congratulations and well wishes. It … Read more

fresh wave

By Emily. Now that the news is out (scroll down one more post!) I can finally write this post! I’ve been using these Fresh Wave products like crazy the last few months and had to share. Fresh Wave is a line of odor eliminiation products, but the best part is that its non-toxic and is just plants, oil and water. So instead of trying to mask smells with fragrances that can be harmful, it eliminates them with molecular science. I don’t pretend to understand that, but I do know that they work!My pregnancy nose is no joke. People, places, things, … Read more

mean tweets, kids style!

We are back with Hulu this season to highlight some of our favorite Fall TV! We love that Hulu segments Late Night TV like this because watching the full hour feels daunting sometimes, and we love that we can catch our favorite highlights or watch the whole program, too! We’ve thought countless times how amazing Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets segment would be with the crazy things people say anonymously online, but the more we got thinking, we don’t even need to reach that far – our kids can be pretty brutally honest as well!  We whipped this one up with Collin Kartchner Films – … Read more

Philips Sonicare for Kids

Philips Sonicare for kids challenged us to test our their awesome power toothbrush to help bring some peace to our morning rush and who better to test it out on then our resident wild man, Sunny? He has boundless energy as you can see throughout but giving him that independence of getting ready makes all the difference! We filmed his very first time using the power toothbrush and laughed so hard. He was so surprised to see it working for him and he intuitively changed his brushing style to let it do the work for him mid-brush. We loved seeing … Read more

gift guides: land of nod!

No secret here how much we love Land of Nod year ’round, but especially for the Holidays! We look forward to their Holiday catalog each year and seeing the wonderful, whimsical collections. We wanted to share a few of our own collections of things that caught our eye this year! Our boys love to pretend to “camp-out” any chance they get with sheet forts and binoculars. Any of these gifts would ramp up their playtime or add a touch of that old time camp feeling to their play space. Sleeping bag in the perfect plaid and retro camp pattern // … Read more
