First day of Kindergarten


So I know it’s not a Mom Monday but I just had to share. Yesterday I dropped Piper off for her first day of Kindergarten. Wow was that emotional. We pulled up to school playing Katy Perry’s Firework, to get her pumped up and we all sang at the top of our lungs. Cue the tears. To make the day special for her we let her pick out her first day of school outfit from her/my favorite store, Cotton On. We also made a special breakfast which consisted of buckwheat pancakes and energy Chocolate Peanut Butter smoothies. Overall it was a success. She loves her new class and her new teacher so far, which makes it way easier. But how is she getting so big so fast!?


Friday Fun {Beer and Shakes}


Today’s inspiration to-go image is from a brewery we visited in San Diego this past weekend, Fall Brewing Company. I know you are thinking that can’t be much fun at 30 weeks, but I found the beauty in the design details. For some reason breweries seem to really have it going on when it comes to design, so it was actually pretty fun visiting the different breweries and checking out their branding and cool spaces.


Mom Monday {Healthy Sweets Ideas}


When talking healthy food with other moms, the constant question I get is, “but what about the sweets? I can’t give that up. It’s too difficult and my child just loves sugar.” Well here are some great ideas for sweets for your kid, refined sugar free…I can’t wait to try some of these. Let me know if you try them!!


Friday Fun {lettering and coconuts}


Today’s inspiration to-go image comes from my birthday dinner last weekend at Social. I really wanted a coconut with a straw in it…low and behold they had a cocktail served in a coconut so they made me a virgin one and voila! Birthday dreams come true!
