Hey parents! Get ready... @Pamperspure is releasing NEW prints to their diapers collection and we couldn't be more in love! Designed by Mrs. @chrissyteigen herself, they are beyond adorable... head over to my IG stories and get a sneak peek of what's to come. Currently all about this Taco print! Are you in love? #pamperspurepartner
I am SO excited to share that I will be attending @citrinenaturalaz GLAM BAR event in Los Angeles on July 20th at The Riveter from 12-5pm and I want YOU to join me! Come get the full Citrine experience, with the choice of a VIP or GA ticket, and get pampered for the day with facials, makeovers, and being face to face with some of Melissa's amazing vendors and products. Want to learn about facial sculpting and massage? There will be two opportunities to attend this class with May Lindstrom herself! Want to keep that vacation glow all year round? Leah Klasovsky of LeahLani is coming from Hawaii to bring the knowledge! This event is going to be epic and there will be SO much more to look forward to. Head over to her website to see the full list of vendors attending and ticket opportunities. Since I will be attending the event, I wanted to do something special for my followers, and for THIS WEEKEND ONLY, Melissa is offering you BUY ONE AND GET THE SECOND TICKET FREE! Pretty amazing! Use code LOLAVIP or LOLAGA when you purchase two tickets together for a price of one! See you there!
I've been asked a few times how I prepare for going out alone with the girls. It's not always easy yet I've found carrying the @miamilybabycarriers HIPSTER PLUS with us at all times has honestly saved me on many occasions. The carrier is easy on my back, has enough storage space for all necessary items, and the best part... leaves me hands free to grocery shop or unexpectedly chase after a toddler. They recently came out with the Binkster pacifier clip toy (what Alice is holding) that helps entertain the baby as well as clips a pacifier. Oh and snacks... lots of snacks! #ad
“Do it again!” - Vivienne. All summer long.
Yesterday was gold 💫
Happy Monday friends! Catching up from the whole house being sick last week and preparing for an even busier week ahead. I may have chipped nails and not a thing packed for an upcoming trip but I DO have my name in my coffee. It’s called balance. 📷 @amaes_photography
Happy Father’s Day to @thevacationjj aka dada aka cowboy dad. Thank you for everything you do, for always making us laugh, and playing chase a little longer than you want each day. These girls are so lucky to have you! We love you!
Vivienne did so amazing at her first dance recital! So proud of her. Grateful for amazing family close by that made it even more special for her. Missing Gaga, Grandpa, Uncle Bran, Uncle Bryan, Uncle Robert and Auntie Nicole!
Moms not allowed to help hold Alice up, that’s big sissy’s job ✋🏼
Self-care is a phrase we often say and acknowledge as important, yet most never follow through. As people, we have other things to do. As women, we often take care of others before ourselves. As moms, we feel guilty taking time away. There are a number of excuses we tell ourselves on a regular basis and the pattern stays unchanging. Then what happens? We grow exhausted. We resent our spouses and kids. We break down. I want to help change this pattern. Head to the blog to read my real talk post on self-care, how I incorporated it in the recent @barre3scottsdalepv event, and ways to add it to your daily life. link in bio 💕
As a busy mom who is always looking for new, inspiring and educational ways to play with Vivienne... I am so excited to have found @kiwico_inc. KiwiCo is a monthly subscription that follows the STEAM method and was created to inspire kids imagination and thinking. Vivienne absolutely loved this month's Tadpole box, being able to make dough with mama and pretend cook in her pop up play kitchen. If you want to try this for your little one and see how he/she likes it, use code LOLA to get a month free! (just pay for shipping). #ad #kiwico

Recital photos for dance class today. Can’t handle!
Yesterday, 23 local followers joined me for a complimentary @barre3scottsdalepv class with @kerri.a.foster. I LOVED meeting so many new faces and expressing the importance of self care. Whether it’s an exercise class or quick face mask, I challenge everyone to do a little something for themselves daily. I’m sorry that we couldn’t have more people at this event, I promise to do something bigger next time but also loved how intimate it was as well. Thank you to @nekterjuicebar @proseboutiques @kimberlymillerskin @kbecktheexplorer @hainsworthcosalon @meltbymelissa @citrinebeautyaz for donating to this event and adding to the conversation of self care. Xo!
I don't know who is more excited for Vivienne's first movie... mom, dad, or Vivienne? Today, JJ and I are getting some one on one time with V and going to see The Secret Life of Pets 2 at @harkinstheatres. It's the perfect animated film for the whole family! I'd love your feedback on how your first movie experience went with your toddler? #harkinstheatres
A couple who masks together... showers together 😆 But for real... today, JJ learns why masking is my favorite while we detox with Kypris Deep Forest Clay Mask (can be purchased via @citrinebeautyaz) Do you mask with your spouse?
Love every freckle.
The good life.
Quality time with mama
Starting this Monday off with a sneak peek into what a typical day looks like and answering some questions for you on IG story! 📷 @amaes_photography

“If you’re lucky enough to be different. Don’t ever change.”
Nothing makes me happier than being able to share something I love with all of you. It took me some time to get back into working out and I owe a big part of it to @barre3scottsdalepv as I fell in love with the workouts. I’ve added a post to the blog on what BARRE3 is and how it differs from the others yet I realized... why not come out and try a class for yourself? On Saturday, June 8th, at 10:30am I will be hosting an event at the North Scottsdale BARRE3 location, giving you a chance to come take a class with me and have the opportunity to win an unlimited month of @barre3scottsdalepv. Unfortunately, we can only allow 23 people to attend this event with 10 available spots for daycare ($5 a child) but I promise if this is successful, I’ll plan something bigger! To enter for a chance to come take a class with me, comment below and DM me your email address, full name, and if you are wanting a spot for childcare. If you receive an email from me by tonight than you are in! SO excited to meet you and introduce you to BARRE3!

Holiday weekend vibes 🍦
When four moms take time away to enjoy the spa, each other, and delicious food and wine... amazing things can happen! They come back home ready to conquer the world! (and kids) Cheers to girlfriends, relaxation, and nights away at @talkingstickresort. #talkingstickresort #ad
I’m a believer in all things 90s. Especially music. What’s your favorite 90s song?
Baby girl snuggles all day every day (until she no longer lets me) 💕
Working hard on my new website, with priority for easy navigation and being able to find exactly what you’re looking for! I’ll also be including a few new things to the blog and bringing one special post back. So excited for this ...bring on the coffee!
Other than nap and bedtime, Vivienne is out of her @pamperspure diapers and SO excited to show off her big girl potty to whoever comes over! Sharing our latest update on potty training on the blog and answering some frequently asked questions with Chelsea Kunde of @buildingblocksaz (who helped us so much!) | link in bio 💕
These are the days.
Perfect. (Not pictured: super painful to nurse on this side right now after Alice took her two teeth to my nipple a few days ago. Yet, we carry on and nurse anyway. #motherhood)
Happy Family Day, Friday! JJ and I both work from home and since having Alice and being home full-time, we have made Friday a day to be together and venture out as a family (that’s not a busy weekend day). It’s a fun tradition that I know the girls appreciate, love, and will appreciate even more when they get a little older. Not to mention, the night ends with Pizza so... 🙌🏽
This is how we roll now | @lilyjadeco #diaperbag accompanied by a potty insert 🚽 ....always! Potty training update coming soon!
So many of you asked for a hair tutorial on this style, so I went ahead and filmed a quick one for you- as it’s actually really simple and doesn’t take a long time to do (🙌🏽) link in bio and highlights 💕
I’ve waited my whole life for you and couldn’t be more grateful to wake up and be your mom every day. I love you Vivienne and Alice!!

So happy to be apart of this amazing event and organization for a second year. Thank you for having me @myvsuw | Follow along via IG stories and see how you can get involved and help support ending hunger in the classroom for children in Maricopa County! #unitedphx
Imagine waking up on Sunday morning in a dark room with no baby monitor, to a breakfast cooked by your partner, handmade card delivered from your kids, and a perfect cup of hot coffee waiting for you to sip alone on the patio. Maybe you have brunch plans with your family, or your partner gives you a gift card to the mall or spa, but today… you do nothing but relax, drink a mimosa, enjoy the restroom alone, and bask in the joys of YOU! Whatever the perfect day may be … don’t’ be afraid to ask for it! Or tag your partner for a little hint hint. Worst case, a @mayabrenner letter necklace was a top contender via IG story from you 😉 hint hint.
I think I’ll always miss the bump | May 2018.

This past weekend, we stayed home and took on the task to potty train our 2.5 year old. It’s been a process to say the least and I’m chatting about our beginning thoughts on how it’s been going on today’s blog post. If you’ve been following along on IG story then you already know... insert all the wine over here! Thank you to @buildingblocksaz for helping us every step of the way.

It is SO important to make one on one time with your partner and go out and enjoy the amazing opportunities your local city has to offer!
