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 –…

Rylee + Cru SS19 | The Latest from my Favorite

Rylee and Cru | SS19
When someone asks me where I get my favorite baby clothes from, I immediately say Rylee + Cru. Literally everything is so good, and I genuinely look forward to seeing each new season come out. Today is the day that Spring/Summer ’19 is available. This time, I was lucky enough to see the season a little early because the girls and I got to shoot with Rylee + Cru. I’ve seen it all and I’m…

There’s a Delivery Service for That

Favorite Grocery and Diaper Delivery Services
When we found out we were having twins, I immediately went to work planning. I wanted to be ready, and have systems in place when they came that would make life as easy as possible. Blake helped a lot with this, and we’ve had a few conversations lately where we pat ourselves on the back for the things we’ve done well in this area. One thing that’s been a HUGE help is organizing deliveries of…

Winter Sweater + Spring Skirt

Colorblock Sweater Free People | High Rise Denim Midi Skirt | White Sneakers
For those of you who have been dying to know what concerts Blake and I picked for each other (this is our new Valentine’s Day tradition in case you missed it) here you go… For Blake, I picked Ryan Bingham. He loves him, and I feel like it’s someone who we will love even more after seeing him. We’ve also loved watching him in the show Yellowstone. It’s a smaller concert/venue and just general admission,…

New Valentine’s Day Gift Tradition

Valentine's Day Gift Idea
Ok, so Valentine’s Day has never been a huge deal in our relationship. I made a joke a couple of years ago about how no one (including Blake) has ever taken me out on Valentine’s Day, and that’s still true ;). But honestly, that’s ok with me! Especially now that we have the girls! We all know there’s a lot of hype/expectation around Valentine’s Day, and more often than not it’s easy to end up…

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…

Our New Guest Room

Guest Room Vintage Beach Vibe | Boll and Branch
Like most of our friends living in Orange County, we live in a small house ;). It’s a track home built in the 60’s, and the bedrooms are pretty small. However, small house and all, we LOVE having guests stay. We’re actually in the process of re-doing our room, which meant we moved our old king-sized bed into the guest room. That triggered what Blake likes to call the domino effect, and of course the…

Faux Fur Favorites, Manly Diaper Bags, & the Girls’ TV Show

The girls’ TV Show Ok, so if you didn’t catch it on my Instagram stories the other day, a bit information about the TV show the girls have been filming was finally released, including an IMDB page. And that IMDB page includes Romy and Piper! Seeing their names/photos on there is one of the cuter things I’ve seen! As for the show, it’s called Paradise City and is a spinoff of a movie that came…

The Inevitable New Year’s Budgeting…Oy

New Year's Budget | Black Sweater Dress | Over the Knee Boots on Sale
I was on a group text with some girlfriends the other day and we started talking about budgeting in the New Year. We were all joking about it, but I realized that it’s not just Blake and I who have been sitting down to talk about finances. THAT was comforting amidst the stress of budgeting/planning for the New Year  – I meeeeean, that’s what girlfriends are for, am I right?! So I got to thinking…

Nyman + Hawkins Christmas Card 2018

We did it! We got our Christmas cards ordered! I had such good intentions to take our photo the end of November, but we’ve been so busy (but really, who hasn’t!?) that I realized we were less than 10 days away from Christmas and I’d done nothing!! Thanks to our good friend Aaron of Wolf Camp Studios/Foxes and Wolves, we were able to take a last minute photo, edit it, design and order our cards…
