Romy + Piper’s First Ski Day

Romy and PIper Skiing | Roxy Baby Snow Suit
We’ve been dying to get to the mountains with Romy and Piper this winter, and we finally made it. Blake’s been joking about how he wanted to ski with the girls – one in front and one on his back – and he got to make it happen! Saturday we took them up to Sundance Resort (if you’ve been a reader for a while you know this is one of our very favorite places –…

Food Ideas for Babies and Toddlers

Baby Food | Food ideas for Babies and Toddlers
I’ve been hesitant to post about this for multiple reasons. One main reason is that I don’t feed my babies perfectly, and I don’t want you to think I pretend to! I have to admit there are days I’d be a little embarrassed if someone knew what my babies had eaten ;). Another reason is that it’s tough to open yourself up for criticism, and I know there’s a lot people could say about this…

Battling a Baby Cold

One of my biggest fears since bringing the girls home from the hospital is that they’d get sick, particularly Piper. What could be a normal cold for someone else can be much more serious for her with her lung issues. Both girls are still at risk for RSV this year, but don’t qualify for the shot that would give them the antibodies to help them fight it. I’ve been a crazy person trying to keep…

Weekly FAQ | High Chairs, Baby Monitor, White Henley, Milk vs. Formula, etc.

micuna ovo high chair
I said I was going to make this a weekly thing back in May, and then I only did it once (insert eye roll here). Someone tell me HOW is it already October?!?! Here’s another attempt at doing this weekly, starting today! I’m going to answer the most frequent that I get in emails, comments, and direct messages throughout the week in hopes that it helps others who might have the same questions! These might…

Little Things that Make Me Feel Like My Own Human ;)

DSTLD Black Silk Blouse | Womens Destructed Mid Rise Skinny Jeans In Medium Vintage | Palms to Pines
Since having the babies, my world revolves around them. Sometimes I’m just happy that way, and it really can be easier to lose myself in that than to snap out of it and do something for ME. I’ve found a few little things that help me stay sane and present, and make me feel good and human (and therefore better as a mama!) This might sound pathetic to some of you, but to someone chasing…

Some Favorite Diaper Bags from MZ Wallace

I don’t know why I think it’s so funny that I find myself out (without the babies) but still carrying the “diaper bag”! I’ve just found some bags that I really like, so I love to throw my stuff in them as a carry-all, too. I think I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a normal (smaller) bag that’s just mine ;). Since I get lots of questions about the diaper bags I love for…

Cute (Not Cheesy) Disney Outfits

Cute Disney Outfits
A lot of readers were asking about where we got our Disney apparel, so I decided to throw up a post to share some of my favorites. While you can find some really cute stuff in the park, it can be pricey and the fits usually aren’t great. There’s so much good Disney stuff to be found at places I love to shop normally, and if you’re wanting to wear Disney stuff to the park…

DIY Balloon Installation from Witty Bash

First Birthday Party Ideas | Cowgirl \ Farm theme first birthday
I decided last minute that I wanted balloons, and contacted Witty Bash about it. Because of the short notice they weren’t able to come install it, but they assured me I could do it with a few simple items and instructions. I was super skeptical, but we gave it a try. I actually couldn’t blow up the balloons the night before because they wouldn’t have fit in my car, so we did it all on location.…

Romy and Piper Turn One

First Birthday Party Ideas | Cowgirl \ Farm theme first birthday
After lots of celebrating with our family and friends, we had one final party to celebrate Romy and Piper. I honestly never thought I’d have a big first birthday party for my kids, because as everyone says, “They’ll never remember it.” But it just felt like there was so much to celebrate this year – our nurses and doctors from the NICU who cared for Romy and Piper in their first three months of life,…

Luau First Birthday Party for Romy and Piper

We planned a trip to visit our family in Utah, and when my sister (Tahni) realized it was close to their first birthday she insisted on throwing them a party. She is THE best host, so good at parties, and always makes it look easy. She threw this party together so fast for the girls and it turned out amazing. We got to see old friends, Blake’s family that lives in Utah, and were so…
