This post should have been published a lot sooner but for various reasons (which I will soon explain) I am just now getting around to it. Honestly, I debated writing this post at all but now, in a sense, I find it therapeutic. 2017 was filled with a lot of ups and downs and was one of the most difficult years for me. But after going through all the photos from this past year and reliving some memories, I felt it important to share. Nowadays, especially with social media, it’s easy to think that everyone has their life together. But in reality that isn’t always the truth. Case and point: my life. Yes, I am very fortunate and have so many things to be thankful for but my life is far from perfect. And you know what? That’s okay. And while I enjoy sharing the fun and exciting moments in my life I feel it also necessary to talk about the not so good times.
So with that being said, here are all the ups and downs of 2017… Read more
This one is for all my last-minute shoppers! But seriously, no judgment because I am in exactly the same boat as you. It seems like every year I promise myself I won’t wait until the very last minute and every year I end up in the same predicament. Oh well, a little bit of pressure never hurt anyone, right?

Believe me when I say I am no fashionista or style guru. In fact, as I write this I am in grey sweats and an over-sized sweater. Don’t get me wrong, I love shoes and clothes as much as the next girl but comfort and ease take priority in my life. Plus, with the holidays coming up I don’t necessarily have the extra funds to spend just on my closet. Luckily, I may have found the perfect solution to my fashion dilemma. Read more
I have been totally dropped the ball. My social posts have dwindled and I can’t remember the last time I wrote a decent post. Especially considering I have my very own site now (insert palm to face emoji.) Granted there has been a lot going on in my life (a big move and even a new job) but I feel like I could have done a better job of staying focused on this dream of mine. Read more
Sorry about my absence, it was not intentional. I had a bit of laptop drama. Luckily the problem was easily taken care of.
Anyways, I feel like SO much has gone on since my last post (which was one of my most read posts to date! THANK YOU SO MUCH!) Most notably, my shoot with PinkBlush! CHECK US OUT HERE! I still can’t believe that it actually happened. I guess it’s not that big of a deal, but for me, it was a little dream come true! Read more
If you read my post 20 Things About Me, then you already know that I love interior design. For me, home decor is what truly makes a house a home. One of the best compliments I receive is when someone enters my home and comments on how welcoming/homey it feels. And while everyone’s design aesthetic is different, my goal when decorating is to make my home feel warm and welcoming. That may be attributed to the fact that I only fill my home with pieces I absolutely love. Read more
We are back from our little vacation in Palm Desert and we had the absolute best time! If you follow me on Instagram you already know that we did nothing but hang out by the pool, play, and watch movies. But seriously, if you are looking for a fun getaway for yourself and the kids check out Shadow Ridge Marriot- The Enclaves. They not only have an amazing facility with tons of pools and even a waterslide, but they have a whole staff dedicated to family activities. From poolside bingo, scavenger hunts, tie-dye shirt making, lawn games, and even a ‘dive-in movie’ every night by the pool, the number of activities are seriously endless! Plus when you add in the mini movie theater, arcade and video games all located on site there is not much more you could want or ask for. Read more
Hey, guys! So I have completely MIA this month. Between life and motherhood this month I haven’t gotten much time to tend to the blog. Hayden recently started Summer break and I am still trying to adjust to having both kids with me 24/7. That being said, I don’t get much me-time, which is when I usually write my posts. So instead of writing about one of our little adventures or about the girls like I usually do, I figured why not make this post all about ME! Here are 20 things you might not know about me, Krystal, or as most of you know me as, Hayden and Holland’s momma. Read more
