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.

#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.

Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

I am SO excited that it’s October!! To me, it’s the start of the holiday season. I honestly never felt this way before I had kids, but I basically find a way to celebrate everything now. Wait, you mean you didn’t give your kids a basket of Halloween themed goodies on October 1st? And yes, that includes all sorts of things for my 10-month-old. Duh, I know I’m crazy and that he (and probably not Elouise either) won’t remember his jack-o-lantern sippy cup when he’s in his 20’s but it sure made him happy today! Long story short, I go overboard for holidays now, it’s just who I am. For Halloween costumes this year I wanted to make it super fun since I have two tiny humans to dress. I am totally down for the family costume but my hubby doesn’t love them and the 31st is also his birthday so it’s only fair for me to let him off the hook. It was so fun for me to come up with ideas that I decided to put together a whole blog post. Now, these costumes aren’t the pre-made store bought ones (and there’s nothing wrong with those, the stores just don’t sell these ones) and they also aren’t the crazy DIY kind with sewing and paper mache. In fact, every one of these starts with clothes from one of my favorite brands, Primary. Solid colors, no logos, cozy, and totally going back into my kid’s dressers after Halloween. The rest of the details were all things I grabbed from around my house or super cheap do-dads, I’ll link as much as I can for you guys!

The One Thing I Can’t Leave the House Without

Cups. Water cups. Specifically the kitty cat doctor cup from Dr. Brown’s because my toddler is really specific. I hate to disappoint if you thought that this was going to be some hot new must have, mom-hack item, but it’s something that’s been around for ages. If I don’t at least bring one cup with us when we leave the house, it’s bad. Like, I will have to buy water somewhere. Let me share with you our current faves, and a few photos of my crazy kids at Target. You know, just in case you were worried you were the only one with a toddler who takes over the bedding aisle for an unprompted runway show. Thanks to Dr. Brown’s for sponsoring this post so I can share our favorite cups with you!

The Pixie Dust of the Disney Social Media Moms Conference

You know that infamous quote from Peter Pan “all you need is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust”? Well, I am here to say that there is a whole lot of truth to that. Your pixie dust might look a little different than mine, but I think that we can all find a little extra sprinkle of magic in our lives if we look for it. Yesterday I got to experience my own encounter with some pixie dust at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland! I got invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Conference held at the resort and it was nothing short of magical. I had SO many of you lovely folks asking questions so I thought I’d share a bit about the day over here!
