Little Runts
Monday, February 27, 2017 5 Comments Images

Good morning! Today I am going to be talking more about my favorite little humans in the world...my boys! I know I share a lot about them, but I just can't get enough! There is nothing better than being their mom and nothing that makes me happier than spending time with them! One of their absolute favorite things to do is play and explore outside. This particular day was perfect for that because we happened to be staying right near the beach. So the boys not only love to play outside, but more specifically, they love, love, love, love playing in the sand at the beach. Like for reals, they could do it for hours and hours, and we pretty much did that on this beautiful morning in Santa Monica.

It's so funny to me, how Hanes and Arrow, once they find something they enjoy doing, they will want to do it over and over and over again. I swear kids sometimes have longer attention spans than adults, or they are able to find moments of joy in simple things for much longer periods of time. Brod and I talk about it all the time because our boys will find something they like to do (like run from the waves or race in the sand) and they want to keep repeating that same activity for as long as we will let them! I think we as adults could take a lesson from our children in remembering to enjoy the simple things for longer periods of time and choose not to get "bored" with them so quickly. Sometimes the best memories can be the most simple ones, as long as we are with people we love. Anyhow, as you can see in the pictures, we had a great time at the beach. Hanes and Arrow found these truck/tractor marks in the sand and they spent all morning racing inside the track marks haha! We were laughing because the tracks went all over the beach and they kept running and following them until their legs practically gave out. For this beach day, they wore their comfy clothes from the Jumping Beans line at Kohl's! They both loved the basketball t-shirt so much because they know daddy loves basketball and their tights and shorts were a great fit for a day full of running and playing. Jumping Beans collection is so easy to pair and comfortable to wear for the little guys. I love knowing they don't have to worry about their clothes and can focus on playing and exploring! As I have said before my boys imaginations can amaze me sometimes, and this beach day was no different as they spent a good hour pretending to be race car drivers running around in the sand tracks. One aspect of the Jumping Bean line that I love is that they celebrate kid's with big imaginations and encourage them to dream and create, and that goes hand in hand with my boys! Finally when it comes to comfort and value, the this collection nails it on both counts! If you haven't checked out the Jumping Beans line at Kohl's, do it! Thanks to you all for following and have a great rest of your day!

Tommy x Gigi

Hey gang! Happy Friday to all of you! I am so excited to share today's post with you because I get to give you a glimpse into one of the most fantastic shows I have attended, that being Tommy X Gigi! Seriously, it was unbelievable! I don't know if you remember but I had the opportunity to attend the first Tommy X Gigi show in September at NYFW and it was fantastic, and now to be able to attend the second Tommy X Gigi show in LA was a dream come true!

The show took place on Venice Beach in California, and when I say it took place on Venice Beach, I mean that Tommy Hilfiger literally took over Venice Beach and turned it into "Tommy Land." It was like being at an amazing and giant carnival. Food trucks, fire throwers, treat booths, t-shirt booths, ferris wheel, and enormous balloons filled what once was Venice Beach. It was so rad! And of course there was a super chill and cool runway space where the show actually took place. Brod got to come backstage and also attend the show to capture some of the amazing moments we had there. This is my favorite show of the year, not only because of the atmosphere and attendees, but also the line. Tommy X Gigi collaborated to create a wonderful, classy, and fun collection once again and I was blown away by the looks that came down the runway! I also adored my look for the show, which was Tommy Hilfiger and had me smiling as I wore it all night long.The jacket, dress, and cap all meshed together in a such a beautiful way and I felt so confident and happy to be wearing it. It was a look that I was so excited to be wearing and rock at the show!

It's hard to describe, but there is something about the vibe and atmosphere that this Tommy X Gigi collaboration and show bring to the table. It's got swag and magic and class all mixed into both the clothes, atmosphere, and people that are part of it! I am forever grateful for the relationship I have with great people at Tommy Hilfiger and I look forward to what they have in store next. The creative minds of Tommy and Gigi produce some amazing stuff, and I can't wait to see what they come up in the future. I hope these images give you guys an idea of what an awesome night it was and help to show a little bit of what Tommy X Gigi is all about! Thanks for following and I hope you all have a fab weekend!

Beach Days
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 25 Comments Images

Good morning ya'll. Happy Wednesday to all of you and I hope this post finds you all doing well. I am taking it back to our trip to LA/Santa Monica because I think it is supposed to snow here today and so I am going to live vicariously through these pictures of the beach haha! Seriously more snow Utah? I mean I thought we were in the clear and heading for Spring and now more snow? Boo! Brod is depressed too because he has been out golfing a few times (of course) already and now he is going to have a to wait awhile again before he can. If there is one thing that is positive about having snow this week, it would be that he can't golf haha! Jk, well sort of jk...I only kind of hate golf.

Anyhow, these pics are from one of our days hanging out at Santa Monica beach. We chased the waves and wandered around in the sand and it was a good day. I sometimes wonder if I lived near a beach. like walking distance, if I could ever get that mad or down about something?! I don't know if I could because the feeling I get when I am on the beach near the ocean is one of such peace and calm, and I get to this level of happiness that comes from just being there. Does anybody else feel this way about the ocean and beach? Brod and I have talked about it before and we decided that if we were ever to move, it would have to be near a beach somewhere. If we were going to be away from our families and those we love most, the beach and ocean would have to be part of the equation. As I look at these pictures I can't believe how old my little guys are getting. Time is the most deceiving thing, it passes so quietly and quickly that you forget it's happening. I love these dudes of mine so much and I am so thankful for days like this one, days we can be at the beach together and chase waves together.

I am wearing one of my absolute favorito sweatshirts I own. Tommy has my heart and I could live in one of these sweatshirts day in and day out if I didn't have to wash them haha. The quality and comfort level of it is quite remarkable and the Tommy Hilfiger logo is pretty much effortlessly classy. Am I right? Anyways (not grammatically correct I know), I hope you all have a fantastic day. Be kind. Enjoy the day in every way you can. Love you all.
