Mom Approved Swimsuits

After having two babies in less than two years, it's safe to say those tiny bikinis I have from my younger days had to be replaced. While I am beyond grateful for my body and the tiny humans it's given me, I certainly don't feel as confident in a swimsuit as I did in my pre-baby days. However, I love the beach, and we spend a lot of time by the pool, so like it or not, I'm in suit often. Before our recent beach trip, I went on the hunt to find a few new suits. I ordered a ton and narrowed it down to the ones I loved the most. I wanted a suit that made me feel good about myself, hid my problem area, and provided excellent booty coverage. Here are my six mom approved swimsuits: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 /

Planner Palooza Day 3- My Favorite Planner Supplies

Welcome to DAY 3 of my planner series! In case you missed it, you can find Monday's post (Why I Love Planning) here and Tuesday's post (My Favorite Planners) here. Today I'm talking all about my favorite planner supplies. As I said yesterday, planning is more than just an organizational tool that I use to keep my life in order. It is also my creative outlet and how I de-stress. I use lots of items when I plan that are both cute and functional.

Full transparency, I got most of these idea from some of my favorite l

Planner Palooza Day 2- The Planners I Use

It’s DAY 2 of my week-long planner series. If you missed yesterday’s post about why I love planning, you can find it here. Today I’m talking about what planners I love to keep my life on track. There are hundreds of planners on the market. I’ve tried TONS of them, but I always come back to Erin Condren. In my opinion, her planners are simply the best. Over the years her company has expanded to include so many different options and customizations that there is bound to be a planner for everyone. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but the quality is unbeatable. Also, knowing I will use it every day for an entire year helps me to justify the purchase. I put aside a little money each month, so I can ge

Beach Essentials

We just got back from a wonderful week-long trip to the beach. Jason and I went a few days early to get some alone time and to celebrate his 35th birthday, and our parents and the kids came for the second part of the week. Packing for a week at the beach is no easy task, especially with a baby and toddler in tow. I've compiled a list of my top 10 beach essentials, as well as 10 necessities for a child's beach bag. I've also included miscellaneous items that I take with me anywhere we go for "just in case" situations. First up- here are 10 items that are essential for ME when I'm at the beach (or pool): 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 Beach Bag My newest obsession is my Bogg bag. They
