She may be Taylor’s mini twin, but she is equal parts goofy like the both of us. She’s my best little bud. Growing every day into her own. Thoughts, opinions, likes, dislikes. This little lady will be experiencing Palm Springs for the first time! Shoot - we both will! We'll see where SoCal falls on her list of likes and dislikes. Until then, you can find us living the easy California lifestyle wherever we are. Practice makes perfect right? I managed to snag a spot to @altsummit in February! Is anyone else going?! β€’ #ad #MyLuckyBrand @LuckyBrand

It was opening day at our farmer's market this morning. We loaded up the little ladies and decided to stave off our hanger with a little brunch action. Taylor looked up at me mid family brunch date and said, "this reminds me so much of France". And, I couldn't agree more. We were both feeling the same wavelength this morning. Always seeking new places and experiences, even if they're in our own town. #butreallythough #iwontturndownatriptofrance

Q U E S T I O N  F O R  Y O U β€’ Hey there, good lookin'! I don't think we've officially met. You see, I've told you random stories of my day here and there. The type of stories that hopefully make both of us feel normal in the my-life-as-a-mom-is-cray kind of way. At least that's what you've done for me. When I told you that one time Isla threw her turd ball at me, I wasn't alone. When I told you this mama gig was far more blood, sweat and tears than anticipated, I wasn't alone. When I told you I only speak in movie quotes, you replied "You go, Glen Coco!" β€’ So here are a few extra facts about me that you may or may not have picked up on: 1. I'm a half Puerto Rican that doesn't speak espaΓ±ol. Unless it's guacamole. Then, I'm fluent. 2. I graduated with a degree in Art & Art History. 3. I studied abroad in Perugia, Italy and am trying to find all and every excuse to take my family. 4. I just joined my gal pal @maskcarapartywithtauri and am SO EXCITED to announce I'm now a maskcara artist!! 5. I was born on July 5th aka 50% off fireworks 6. I was born a military babe in South Dakota and have come full circle to marry into the Air Force. β€’ I want to learn more about you! How long have we been frannds? What's something you want others to know about you? Let's make this world just a little bit smaller! β€’ and if you entered my maskcara giveaway with @tauritucker, the winner is *drumroll* : @lindseytrauger πŸŽ‰πŸ’• DM with your email 😘

Totally busted Isla digging into all of the breakfast biscuits - that's probably a sign that I need to have a more structured breakfast plan. But when @puregrowthorganic are organic (spoiler - bet you didn't see that coming) and give me a reason to go to Target, (You guys knoowww I love me some Target time) I have zero qualms about it. Not to mention, Marlowe is freaking hilarious when her big sister sneaks her a handful of Biscuit Bites (that her only two little teeth shouldn't have). That kid acts like she's stepped foot into an all-you-can-eat buffet for the first time and at the same time she heard this will be her last supper. She finds the will and a way to nom her heart out (with motherly supervision πŸ˜‰). And please tell me I'm not the only one who covers every square inch of things I want to keep nice (aka our couch) with blankets. I need plastic couch covers like my abuela had!

Happy Father's Day to the man rocking paisley since the 90s, teaching me how to tell cheesy jokes, staying up late to lay down some encouraging words, being an example of love, loyalty and diligence, and never missing the opportunity to break dance at all celebrations. So grateful that YOU are my Padre πŸ’•

Things I don't want to forget about you, Mar (especially since you've been blessed as the second child) :
- you crawled for the first time a week before you hit seven months
- you love looking at the world upside down (most of all when you catch yourself as we pass a mirror)
- you have zero aversion to any food. You will literally eat anything. You are the dog we've never had. - your face lights up every morning when your sister wakes up and it's your favorite when she greets you with a good morning hug and kiss (even if it's borderline too much)

In typical insta-fashion, gotta make use of throwback Thursday and the fact that Father's Day is on Sunday and the fact that I can upload more than one photo at a time. Same daddy, different baby. My three greatest loves πŸ’•

A list of things I've found stashed in her @triokid wagon: blocks (normal), dolls (normal), a bag of missing apple slices (they we're MIA for at least a week.. who am I kidding -- probably longer), her little sister (okay, that was my fault and probablyyyy not advised πŸ™ƒ). β€’ #aframehaus

#ad β€’ It's windy and rainy and super overcast. But that cute bed head brought me her swimsuit and asked for "wah". So we're "play" applying on our sunscreen (practice makes perfect πŸ™ŒπŸΌ) and she's going to swim in the bathtub. Lawd knows that hair needs some TLC. β€’ #mimicmommy @neutrogena

This man doesn't need gifts, or praise, or any of the typical Hallmark holiday gifts. All he wants is to spend time with his girls. I have no idea how I got so lucky to call this man my husband. How blessed these girls are to have him as their "DAAAAAAD" (as Isla would yell, ahem, I mean say). He plays with them until they pee their pants (literally). Has an unreal amount of patience for every situation. Reads and sings to Isla girl every night. Loves through the sweet times and loves harder through the rough times. What do you get someone so content with "time"? My first attempt was a print from our trip to France when we were first married. It was of just his handsome self with the backdrop of a Paris side street. Apparently, men don't want a portrait of themselves printed out (no matter how good quality it is). Second and third times a charm. Our second @shutterfly delivery was a compilation of photos (4 x 6 this time) of his first days of fatherhood to present day. And then the third delivery. Man, the third time is the real sweet spot. A rare family portrait of all four of us. (Thanks @maddiebroderick 😘) Framed AND hung. That is exactly what this man wanted for his Father's Day this year. What are your go-to gifts for Father's Day? β€’ #FathersDay #ad #shutterfly

The family that location scouts together stays together. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§πŸ“πŸ—Ί β€’ but most of all, the husband and wife who take turns passing their 7 month old across the table so the other one gets both hands to eat.

Hear ye, hear ye - it is time for another #skincareaddictsanonymous meeting that is not-so anonymous. Like all previous meetings, I slap on some new products I'm trying and let you know what I think. This meetings topic: @elemisus. First of all, they had me at QVC. If you aren't a QVC watcher, once you start.. you just. can't. stop. I feel comfortable passing all the credit to my mother-in-law for getting me hooked on phonics (and QVC). But to the point, this simple day/night routine is sort of magical. The cleansing balm starts off like the name suggests...it's thicker than I expected. You spread it onto your skin dry and then massage with warm water until it transforms into a hybrid cream/foam cleanser (←the magical part). Words of caution: the cleanser and cream are in a pot - which makes my previous acne suffering self a wee bit hesitant. Just make sure you have surgeon level clean hands before double dipping (per my safety measures πŸ˜‚) If you're not a fan of scents, this may not be a match made in heaven but in my book it reminds me of the luxurious women in those old movies. Or maybe just Lucille Ball in "I Love Lucy". That's about as close as I'll get to luxurious. (Side note: binge watched that throughout my childhood, explains a lot of my domestic techniques). All in all, these three reinforce my no make up days by keeping my skin looking well rested. #ad #ELEMISEVERYDAY #wakeupbeautiful

May my previous phone rest in pieces. Seriously. I dropped the dang thing last week and went off the grid for a solid three days. Talk about a bundle of stress and relief all in one crinkly ball. Solution: stop dropping my dang phone πŸ˜‚ As soon as I got my new life (ahem, phone) ordered I made sure I had a @loopycase as soon as humanly possible. If only these loin fruits of mine came with a loopy case πŸ˜‚ I guess every bump just makes them stronger, riiiight? Or traumatized.
