Jewelry & Jeans: June 2018

Casual or Dressy; A Dress for Either Occasion

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

It's summer and around here that means HOT.  Pregnant and hot temps mean one of two things; feed me all the popsicles and let me buy all the dresses.  Throwing on a good dress whether it's for everyday things or a special event is my current go-to.  I just grabbed two good ones and wanted to share.

THIS first one is soft, comfortable and so effortless to wear.  The fabric has a lot of stretch and flow to it.  I've been loving and living in sneakers and dresses lately.  I think it's a fun way to add a sporty look to an otherwises thought dressier piece of clothing.  The black and white stripes add interest but keep the look flattering and the ruffle sleeves are my favorite detail. I did size up but not because it was tight around the middle, rather I did it to add length as it falls over my ever growing belly this summer.


THIS off the shoulder number has pretty laser cut out details along the top and bottom that definitely catches the eye. You can wear it up on your shoulders but the cut is perfectly suited for the off the shoulder style. It has a great length even after going over the bump. Not maternity but it has stretch to accommodate. Fits true to size and the color is a pretty merlot.

Whether you're looking for a run errands in kind of dress or a guest of a wedding type, both of these options are great and definitely won't break the bank.



We're Having A ....... {How We Shared The News}

Ecstatic: a state of overwhelming emotion; especially rapturous delight. It is truly difficult to put into ones the feelings and emotions of the past 24 hours. For once in my life I am actually, honestly, at a loss for words. Yesterday we hosted a BBQ with some of of nearest and dearest friends and family (missing a few loved ones who were definitely there in spirit and texting incessantly) and held our gender reveal for Baby No. 3. 

Disneyland Family Vacation 2018

Friday, June 1, 2018

Nothing's sweeter than a little escape to the happiest place on earth, right? For us, our week away enjoying all things Disney and beyond was actually, just that, sweet. We spent a few days at the Grand California with the grandparents and Uncle D, Auntie Bri and our sweet niece Kylie.

If you're never been before the Grand is literally in downtown Disney and as direct access to California Adventure.  Because its a Disney hotel you also get free magic hour which means you can access the park an hour before it opens for free. Those two factors alone made it so incredibly convenient for us that we would go back a hundred times and still want to stay there but in addition, it's really nice to be able to walk quickly everywhere you want to go and head back to the room for something in just a few minutes. When we went to California Adventure we had no wait for security check and we only waited to get into the park because we were early.  Once our magic hour started us, and about 20 others got to just walk in. We were able to capture 3-4 rides back to back with absolutely NO line. It was a dream.

Colton was at the perfect age and height and has absolutely no fear so he enjoyed every rollercoaster or "scary" ride he could possibly get on.  Space mounting and the Matterhorn were a few of his favorites. It really is something beyond special to watch your kids light up when they experience something that truly excites them.

His face says it all.

Bronson was excited to try some big boy rides as well but boy was he even more excited about the characters. My normally wild boy was happy to wait in long lines if it meant a chance to hug Woody or kiss Mickey. I've never seen a bigger smile on his face.

Look at Colton's face!! 

If you're looking for some cute mouse ears that you won't see every other person wearing you have to check out Metal Mouse.  She is local to Fresno, has the most killer style and her ears give you a little edge which is great especially as a mom of 2 boys!

How cool are these ears?!

We definitely didn't sell our selves short on enjoying all of the yummy goodness Disneyland has to offer.  From the funnel cakes and flavored churros to the turkey legs and beyond, we indulged in it all.  Or at least my pants felt like we did! But I have no regrets.  It's vacation after all and life is about enjoying those special little treats every now and then.

This kid can down a corndog about as good as daddy demolishes a turkey leg.

So good. Definitely recommend. 

Even though this wasn't Bronson's first visit it was his first time really taking in all the sites and enjoying the experience.  He eyes lit up after every turn and it was pure magic to watch.  Plus, kuddos to him for being only 2 weeks potty trained when we went and killing that job the whole time we were there! Even in the long car rides down and back. So nice to be out of diapers even for a few months before Baby #3 comes along. 

My little ham.

The fam bam.

 We really did have the best time with the family. The boys don't get to see their cousin often so those special days watching them smother her were precious.  Can't wait until the next time.
