Best Time Ever

20 June 2024

Life update: I lost my job. Here's the story. Days before I came back to work from maternity leave, I learned the company I worked for was closing it's CA office and moving to the East Coast. Yeah it was bittersweet because I loved the brand I worked for and I really loved my co-workers, but the reality of it all was this was the best thing that could have happened. I was genuinely sad this time around to go back to work because I had such a great time on leave with my two littles. We enjoyed our daily park trips and doing all the relaxing things having a job didn't allow. So really, when I found out about this, it felt like I had another chance to leave again in a few months to spend more time with my babies. Flash forward to the last day of April, I wrapped up work and kicked off my funemployment. It has now been just over a month of not working, I just turned 34 a few days ago and it all just feels like an awesome time to refocus my personal goals. 

Orange Creamsicle Toddler Pouch Recipe

30 July 2023


Okay, I took a much needed hiatus but obvi worth it because have you seen my kids!? I'm full on momma of two and when I tell you this new life is incredibly challenging yet fulfilling, it's 100% all of that and more. I once heard that when you become a mom, you immediately become green which is actually really funny because I definitely fit the bill long before I became a mom. Getting my kids the best to keep them healthy is my forever job and that starts with nutrition. We've been there and back with food making sure to fork up a big bill on their food and still, there's always a little voice inside me that constantly reminds me nothing is actually fresh unless it's homemade. Anyway, long story short, we're cool to balance freshly made and as good as it gets snacks because there's also this thing called time that we don't have enough of - oy. 

Embroidered Valentine's Day Shirts

13 February 2023


It's our first DIY of 2023! So excited to bring this content back and in such a fun way. My goal for this year is to post at least one DIY every month and honestly was jazzed about this one in particular. I love Valentine's Day and the season of hearts, pink, red and all the cute things. Now having a child and tons of nieces and nephews around, it's fun to think of little crafts to put together on a whim, like these conversation heart t-shirts for Valentine's Day. Let's go over what you need! 

Apple, Peas and Spinach Baby Puree

28 January 2023


'Tis the start of #xobabyeats! If you follow me on Instagram, you know #XoEats is my thing. Now having a baby that's fully eating solids, it's so fun to experiment with blends and textures. Daniel had a little bit of a slow start with solids and was absolutely not into the first blend of veggies we gave him. We tried food our pediatrician recommended (Beechnut brand) and that worked so great. If I wasn't going to make it myself, I at least wanted to make sure we were giving him an option that was a trusted brand free of icky ingredients. Still, I'd look at the blends and couldn't get past the fact that we were giving him something I could blend up lol. For as much as I love hitting up the farmer's market every weekend, I just always envisioned myself picking fruit and veggies up for my kid and making their food. Long story short, we're there now and I'm so excited to be able to share some recipe's here! First up, apple, peas, spinach oh my!
