How I’m Staying Sane this Holiday Season

I think every mom can agree that we wish we had a second set of eyes. I could rattle off a list of about a hundred reasons why they would come in handy. I am even more aware of this need during the holidays though. Find a mom during the holidays and I can almost guarantee that she is multitasking about 5 things at any given moment. Things get CRAZY. Out of town guests, cooking elaborate meals, organizing holiday cheer, shopping for gifts, decorating to the nines, and all of that on top of the normal never-ending to-do list. I’m tired just thinking about it. That’s where my secret weapon comes in, my extra set of eyes if you will. I’ve partnered with Logitech to tell you all about how I’m using their new Circle 2 camera to stay sane during the holidays, and it’s really good.

Happy Holidays to You

Call me crazy, but I am like 90% in Christmas mode already. Honestly, the only thing stopping me from being 100% there is the fact that we are planning for Sully’s birthday party on the 11th so I have to hold off on decorating with Santa and reindeer because it doesn’t really go with the dinosaur theme. One thing we did already do was bust out our matching Christmas PJs and snap some family photos. I just might send a Christmas card out this year, although the stack of unsent birth announcements from Elouise still haunts me a little bit. So, just in case they don’t get sent out, I’m sharing the goodness up here on the blog because the cuteness factor is on another level!

Baby Food Made Easy

I get a lot of questions about what we did and are doing to feed Sully as fas as starting solids. The answer is, there is no one answer. We have done almost every option of feeding with him. Is it a second child thing? We’ve done store bought organic baby food, pre-made food delivery services, baby led weaning (aka giving him food from my plate) and then whenever I can, I’ve made him fresh baby food. I will say that this is by far my favorite option, simply because I can control exactly what he eats and how fresh it is. It always felt really daunting though, until I discovered Raised Real.

#MomsDoPalms

Yup, a bunch of Moms did Palms really good, Palm Springs that is. We had SO MUCH FREAKING FUN. With the exception of one of my IRL besties, Ashley, I had not met any of these ladies. 9 women, who are basically strangers, in a house would typically be a recipe for disaster. Like, they film reality TV about stuff like this because it’s usually pretty juicy. However, we knew we liked each other from connecting on Instagram over the course of about a year and the results were magical. It was SO fun, we laughed and ate, and laughed so more. We were hosted by The Weekend House and it could not have been any more perfect. Since I don’t want to bore you all with every tiny detail, I will just share all of the fun photos.
