Datebox – Growth

I am much more me when I’m with you. – Datebox

For our 8th wedding anniversary, I wanted to share a special date with my husband, but I was looking for something a little outside our box.  Ironically enough, a friend of mine recommended something inside a box: a Datebox.

Datebox is a subscription box company that you pre-order online and every month a unique box containing everything you need for a fun and creative date is delivered to your door step. Each month the box has a different theme and activity inside that allows you an opportunity to create a special memory.

Raising Girls

If I could have asked my younger self where I would be at age 31… I promise you I never would have imagined a mom to two beautiful girls! I always thought that I would make a great boy-mom, and truly anticipated having a home full of dirt-covered little dudes and a family room covered in sports balls and legos!  BOY was I wrong! God has a great sense of humor.  Instead I have a home full of princess dresses, an over-sized bright-pink Barbie Dream house, drawers of bows and headbands, and baby dolls around every corner… and the crazy part is, I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

It is true when they say Jesus has you exactly where you should be. I have never felt so blessed for my family and my surroundings.  Continue Reading

{GIVEAWAY details at the end of this post}

As my family likes to jokingly point out, I am one fair-skinned mama!… So naturally, my poor kiddos inherited fair skin too.  As residents of Arizona, it is a daily challenge to keep us all protected from the sun while doing life outside.  But when I came across the brand SwimZip, I was thrilled to learn that their adorable swimwear products protect from harmful UV rays with SPF 50+ sun-protected material and is fashionable enough to be worn anywhere.  This company is my dream come true!

Mommy Break { Featuring : Lucy & Leo – Organic Children’s Clothing }

:: Clothing on a Mission ::

Today’s Mommy Break Feature was inspired by a cute pop-up-shop I found while visiting the concrete jungle where dreams are made of (…Que Alicia Keys and Jay-Z), on a girl’s trip to NYC last Christmas.  I literally stumbled upon this sweet children’s clothing shop while doing some Christmas shopping in Bryant Park.  Side note; Bryant Park at Christmas time has got to be one of the cutest outdoor boutique shopping experiences I have ever visited.  It’s holiday charm meets hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, and it’s filled with the most adorable small businesses.  If you are ever in New York in December, visit Bryant Park, it is straight out of a movie! … Sorry, back to Lucy & Leo. 🙂 Continue Reading
