Small Fry Films: Theme Park Adventure with Ergo!

by Jenna:

For the second video in our series with Ergo we knew we had to show you how the organic cotton carrier is the VIP at one of our favorite family spot’s, Disneyland. I love the breathability of this carrier as we walk through hot days at the park. It’s so comfortable, easy and Lolly girl LOVES to sleep cozy in it.

This video seems like yesterday but she’s so much bigger now, I am so grateful to Jenner for capturing this special time in our lives.

As you can see from the video our favorite thing to do at Disney is….eat! Here are some of our family favorite’s:

1. Dole Whip from the Tiki Room — trick is to go around the back of the line where there is patio seating and get yours there. People don’t know they can purchase on the other side and it’s usually half the wait.

2. Corn Dog from the Little Red Wagon — to the right of the end of Main Street is the cart where all your dreams come true. Usually a corn dog feeds several of the family and comes with chips and a heart attack too! Worth it.

3. Gumbo Bread Bowl at the Royal Street Veranda — this is good on a chillier day or for brunch. What I love is it’s the most filling lunch money can buy at the most expensive place on earth :)

4. Jalapeno & Cream Cheese Pretzel — these are sold all over the park and are d i v i n e. The Cinnamon Sugar one is also on point…you really can’t go wrong with a pretzel stuffed with cream cheese.

5. Apple Freeze at the Cozy Cone Motel — in Cars Land follow the big orange cones and get yourself an Apple Freeze and maybe anything else on the menu. So so so good!

quick zip sheets

Between today and yesterday’s posts we are feeling on top of the world! Finding products that fill a need, or solve a problem, or make our lives easier is always exciting, even all these years later. Ready for the next game changer? Quick Zip Sheets! They have created fitted sheets for beds and cribs where all you have to do to remove and launder a sheet is one quick zip. If you have bedwetter, or are just tired of the absolute struggle that is removing and replacing a fitted sheet, this is for you!
Quick Zip SheetsNothing is worse than waking up in the middle of the night with news that you need to change a sheet. That bleary eyed movement always leaves us wide awake after and totally disgruntled. With the Quick Zip Sheet you seriously just unzip it and toss it into the laundry. The zipper goes around the edge of the sheet with a nice hemmed flap to cover it, no chance of irritating the skin.IMG_9002 The crib sheets are especially helpful, thinking back to how many times we changed sheets from a blow out or spit-up. This one is a must have addition to everyone’s baby registry or shower gift line-up! If you’re wondering where you can buy these brilliant sheets, they’re on Amazon online, and you can check by zip code here!

Comfort Cam

By Jenna.

Before I had Lolly I knew I wanted a new video monitor and so I took to our Facebook page to ask moms what they’ve liked and it was honestly crickets. Not a single response! And I think it’s because there really hasn’t been one that I’m aware of that is worth the price of what a video monitor takes, until I found the Comfort Cam.IMG_4256Isn’t it so pretty?IMG_4257This thing is legit, you guys. It’s reasonably priced at $150 which the others I looked at were twice that much. The quality is picture perfect and you can access it from your phone ANYWHERE you are! It’s secure and password protected so only you can see it. IMG_4266You can buy more than one camera (up to 4) and they discount it so I think I will get another one for the boys’ room to peek in when they have a babysitter! Did I mention you can talk to them through the app?! Maybe creepy, maybe genius, either way I love it.IMG_4279Andrew loves too that he can peek in and see the baby at work also, it’s fun to feel like he can be involved a little bit on long work days

Another great addition is the digital clock, so easy to track late night feedings with a new baby. The best part is its all free if you use the Wifi in your home or $10/month to have access the feed anywhere! Our family is definitely pleased with this purchase and I would highly recommend it if you’re in the market for a video monitor!

petite + pois

We’re always happy to find local artists to share with you guys, and today we wanted to give you a peek at Petite + Pois! This shop is a curated collection of original art and custom commissions put together by Holly Addi and we loved adding these pieces to our collections! Here’s how we incorporated them:

This bright, graphic piece “Coeurs” adds such a pop of color to any room, but Nicole loves it amongst her own original photography, pictures of her boys, and greenery.
Petite + Pois Petite + Pois Petite + Pois

For Emily’s piece, this “Tout Va Bien” fits the color scheme of her kitchen and living room perfectly. The metallics and peaches compliment the other decor elements already in the room just right. And the French saying for “All is well” is a perfect reminder for the room they all congregate in most.

Petite + Pois

If you’re looking for a local artist to support and add to your own home art collection check out the brand new shop Petite + Pois here! Jenna is working with P+P to do a custom piece so we’ll be sure to share it when it’s all complete!

30th at The Montage Deer Valley

Well I did it. I went and turned 30! It wasn’t as hard as awful as I anticipated…mostly because my friends & I met in the mountains at The Montage Deer Valley–and well everything is right in the world when you’re there! montage1

We had the MOST incredible room. I definitely recommend the King Suite when you go–it was a perfect space for all of us plus two babies to pile in to!! The hotel staff greeted us with chocolate cake which coincidentally is also the way to my heart.montage2

THE POOL. Guys. We were only there 24 hours and it was simply not enough time to enjoy all the amenities but especially not the pool! I could be there for DAYS. It was so stunning nestled in Deer Valley. I know The Montage gets lots of play in the Winter because it’s a ski in resort with a lift but…summmmmerrrrrrr. WOAH! montage3

We enjoyed a couple hours at the Spa laughing our butts off and I’m sure disturbing the peace. I had THE BEST massage of my life a couple years ago at The Montage but this time we just enjoyed the complimentary spa amenities without even receiving a service and it was sooooo relaxing. Just what this old tired Mom needed.montage4

We ate dinner at Burgers & Bourbon which I actually didn’t get any pictures of because I was too busy STUFFING.MY.FACE. Everything is excellent. Even if you’re not staying in Park City it’s worth the drive up to eat. So so so good and I’m embarrassed to admit that the Fried Pickles are part of my daily conversation with anyone I come in contact with. “Hi, I’m Jenna…have you by chance eaten the fried pickles at Burgers & Bourbon?” Seriously they’re that important to me.montage5

Breakfast we ate on the patio at Apex in the Hotel. Just FYI I had the best Omelette of my life and an Eggs Benedict that rivaled my favorite one from Pastise in NYC. montage6

I love staying at hotels now and really seeing how they work for everyone and anyone. There were couples celebrating special occasions, single career folk looking for a break and kids running on the lawn. It’s a luxurious spot that invited anyone from anywhere. Lolly came along with and I can’t wait to take my kids back. They had real cribs brought in for the babies and Noodle & Boo for them to bathe in. We introduced Lolly to the Robe Life and all it’s luxuries. I’m sure this is the many of her girls trips to come! montage8

Last but not least after dinner we enjoyed a complimentary s’more roast with the most incredible handmade marshmallows. I’m thinking of hopping the fence every night and helping myself to the Mocha flavored ones–they were insane.

Now on to the good stuff–what we (more importantly what Nicole & Emily) wore.montage9

Nic loves a hat and I love her in this Yankee one she has. So simple and so good. Okay and this linen dress stop everything you’re doing and buy it. It’s long enough, pretty enough, amazing enough. It’s incredible. She wore this dress as a cover up and to breakfast and it was simply stunning. Also who doesn’t love a Sonnet James? Every Mom needs one in her wardrobe. Gold Ray Bans complete any look and these ones are ON SALE! Madewell Bag & Shoes are Summer staples too.montage10

Emily babe showed up in this lip color and I dropped dead. I’ve been looking for the perfect orange-coral for Summer and look no more cause Morange is it. Em looks killer in anything but this dress and chambray around her waist blew my mind. Also live in leggings, Nike Hoodie and shoes are a girl’s best friend. Emily always impresses me with her flawless but casual taste.montage11


Um I obviously was gong most casual here but like I said…Athletic Gear for LIFE. First of all these sunglasses. They are PERRRRRFECT. And $20. Yes t w e n t y dollars. I’ve had a lot of expensive glasses in my time and these ones are just the best-I’ve bought every color. This sports bra is my favorite right now. It’s got enough support for my nursing self and is adjustable so it’s comfortable. Love it. These pants are incredible and I don’t know kind of sexy in a leggings sort of way. Really love them. And this jacket is so great, lightweight and can fold in to itself in some kind of magic trick. And everyone needs a good striped swimsuit–here’s a great one for you.

And you’ve gotten to the end of the longest summary of a birthday getaway ever but it’s not every year you turn 30! Thanks to all of you who left comments and sent messages-I felt so very loved.
