In the last week, all of our smoke alarms have sounded letting me know they had low batteries. All conveniently chirping at different times throwing me into a full blown scavenger hunt to find the one that needed replaced. A logical person would refresh the batteries in all of them... Nerp, not this girl. Instead, I wait for one to go off juuust after I put Mar down for bed. You would’ve thought I was a part of a bomb squad slowly turning the door knob, easing up and meticulously taking down the alarm. BTW, I would have failed miserably at the bomb squad. Mar woke up just as I inched out the doorway. 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 welcome to the grown up version of Operation.🚨🔊• side note, I title this “The closest thing I could get to a photo of the three of us” 👩‍👧‍👧📷

Heyo, SAA! (Skincare Addicts Anonymous 😂) I broke the holy grail rule and dramatically changed my *entire* skincare routine. Note to future self: SLOWLY ease new products into your routine ONE bugger at a time. This unretouched mugshot is about five days post @utahfacialplastics chemical peel and (*gasp*) my skin is looking 100x better than what I was working with beforehand, about a week ago. Back to using what works for my skin and not screwing around with it. 😂 hopefully this reminds those struggling with acne that you’re not alone in this beautifully, edited world 💕 #gottastatetheobvious #fakeeyelasheshelpingthissistertoday

SOS : these babes climb everything 🙈 I’ve resorted to pulling our side tables into the center of the floor when I step into the next room. Otherwise, they will push chairs over, climb the couch, scale their Lincoln log bin, whatever they can find that gets the job done. I’m partially impressed by their ability to improvise. And partially convinced they just want a trip to the doctor. (Isla is on a major doctor kick). So is there anything I can do besides bolt everything to the wall/ground? Because I’m about to throw these two in a bubble and call it good. 👍🏼

Isla attempts to FaceTime everyone in my favorites about 17 times a day. 😬And twelve of those are for her pops. *Ahem, daddy’s girl* But majority of the time, it’s mid morning and he’s hard at work. I have to do some fast work when the girls realize he can’t answer the phone. So to keep the crocodile tears at bay, I take turns throwing them up in front of our @ring security cameras to leave a little virtual love note for their dad to watch later. He may be miles away, but it’s just like he’s #alwayshome thanks to our partnership with @ring. 🏠

Just over here living my Italian dreams in these booties and trying to keep isla from stealing them. I thought she wasn’t supposed to raid my closet until she was at leeeast 13. • Also, you all loved these when I shared them on my stories so PSA: today is the last day to snag them from the @mgemi shop & use code SAMANTHA50 for $50 off your first purchase 🙌🏼✨ Can we just talk about how sweet it is that they personalize each box with your name?! 😭

Scrolling through my feed being inspired by all you healthy folks! 😍But the only thing getting detoxed over here are these locks. I may not have mustered up the courage to say “farewell” to my favorite drive-thrus🍟, but I can happily bid adieu to last year’s haircare and hello to a little #EverydayPhyto TLC. I partnered up with my friends @phytousa to test drive theit detox kit and it has me on cloud nine. 💫☁️ you know that clean, tingly, refreshing feeling. A total exfoliating, clarifying, and balancing at-home spa experience for your scalp. Yep, rocked that luxury feeling the entire evening after my detox shower 🙌🏼 Definitely going to pencil that into my schedule once a week. Even if I never get out of the house to whip these hairs back and forth. 🧖🏻‍♀️

Brb while I sing Christmas songs to get this toddler to sleep. Apparentlyyyy she thinks if there’s snow on the ground, then it’s still Christmas. 🎄 I wish, kid. But mama is gunning for some summer sun at this point. ☀️

We’ve been flying solo for about a week while Dad is out of town for work and I’m fully relying on Costco meals, ✌🏼nap✌🏼time (emphasis on air quotes because both girls are choosing to boycott day sleeping) and our @ring security cams for keeping me sane. Thankfully, Taylor made it top priority to make sure I was at peace with the concept of being the woman of the house. And because of our partnership with @ring, he was able to install these security cams before he left. Plus, it’s total comedic relief when he talks to the girls thousands of miles away through the cams and totally catches them off guard. Screenshots on screenshots, I tell ya. #alwayshome

She’s in this cute phase of high five-ing strangers. And I’m in this cute phase of stashing hand sanitizer in every place imaginable. Be gone, flu season! ✌🏼 Is everybody else down for the count? Just us? 😷

Praising the heavens above that rompers exist on days that pants are not an option. I can manage two babes clinging to me... barrreelly (in my What About Bob voice) but pants? Just won’t do, my good sir.

There are days when the girls take a tumble and I regret not having a rug. 🤕💫And then there are days when I think buying play dough was a grand idea. On those days, let us rejoice in our rug-less living room. #thosetoesaredodgingplaydoh • also, let me introduce you to the beatnik version of Isla Quinn *snaps*

My whole world, just as it is. Messy, fast-moving, and wild. 💕💫

There’s apple cider on the stove and Taylor is mulling it to per-fec-tion. Meanwhile, I whipped up some festive (baby) moscow mules with @zevia Ginger Beer, fresh orange, cranberries and a cinnamon stick. Because, mulling cider takes forever and a year. And we have the patience of 👌🏼combined with bed time being stretched and tested this fine Christmas Eve evening. (Say that five times fast). What’s your favorite holiday drink? ✨🥃🎄 • #christmasspirit #holidaydrinks #ad

Auntie Maddie fulfilled all necessary “cool aunt” duties and not only let isla girl open her Christmas presents early but completed her “pwincess” dreams by adding this @tortoiseandthehareclothing crown to her wardrobe. She immediately “Garçon!”-ed me to fetch her @shoplilylily dress so she could get jiggy to some “christttas” jams. Which apparently, if they don’t have the word “Christmas” then it’s not meeting her standards. Although, I’m pushing hard for my main man, Bing and his classic Happy Holidays 🙌🏼

We got our Christmas cards back from my oober talented, sweet friend @emmylowephoto and I’m about to post every. single. one. So incredibly grateful that she captured us during this time in our life. Taylor heads off in quite a few short days. For months at a time 😭 which means I’ll need to have one of each photo hanging in every room 💕 But on a completely random but slightly relevant Christmas note: do you do Christmas breakfast? I’ve always done scrambled eggs with Italian sausage mixed in #insertYUMemoji but I feel like i need to expand my menu. Any suggestions? 🍳🎄😍
