How I got my Body Back After Twins…for the Most Part ;)

L*Space Yellow Swimsuit | The Shop Laguna | Palms to Pines
Ok guys, you asked and I’m answering. Here’s how I’ve (almost) got my body “back” after having twins. Let me start by saying that I’m NOT an expert. I’m actually notoriously horrible at sticking to anything, have way too many weaknesses, and way too little will power. But I do think I’ve gotten in to my own little groove that’s worked for me, so I don’t mind sharing it with you on here. I also…

With one baby, you’d be able to take more to the gate, but here’s how we do it with twins: we check the car seats and then use our double umbrella stroller to take…

Preparing to Transition the Babies to their Own Room

Transitioning from bassinet to crib
Ok – so I’m admittedly having a hard time moving the girls into their own room at night. At first I thought it was just because I’m still traumatized from the girls spending their first three months in the hospital. Leaving them at night was one of very hardest parts about that whole experience. I just wished and wished for the first night I’d have them in our room with us to come, and there…

The Big Fix

Dr. Scott Harris | Dental Before and After | Impacted Tooth, Receding Gums
So I think everyone has that one thing they’re the most self conscious about, right? For me, it’s always been this one stupid tooth! I literally think about it every time I talk to someone, and it’s the first thing I notice in photos of myself. At work, I would find myself trying not to smile unless my head was turned to cover that tooth! This Freakin’ Tooth… I’ll spare you the long story, but…

Teething Recommendations

Teething Tips | Homeopathic Teething Remedies
So the girls are officially teething! When they first started, I was in denial because it felt so early. I’d also been dreading teething, because I knew things would get tougher for all of us. I think a lot of people didn’t actually believe me, but I knew their teeth were close. Sure enough, after a couple weeks of struggle, Romy’s two bottom teeth poked through. The very next day, Piper’s came through! Must be…

Taking the Babies to Humboldt

Visiting Grandma | Palms to Pines
The babies had their first flight, and were able to meet my Grandma for the first time! I can’t even explain how much this trip meant to me. I’m posting it on here for no reason other than to document it in some way. And also to remind all of us how special and important these moments are, because it’s easy to forget. It wasn’t easy getting there – flights are so expensive that we…

Easter Sunday 2018 at the Montage

Easter Brunch at the Montage in Laguna Beach - Orange County
The past few years, Blake and I have spent Easter on our own. I hate spending holidays away from family, so you can imagine how excited I was this year when I realized that not only was it our first Easter with Romy and Piper, but my sister and her family would be in town for it! And an added bonus – it also happened to fall on my sister’s birthday! She’s an April Fools’…
