This summer has been nonstop, and I’m happy to say that much of it is due to my growing niche of travel blogging! I love finding business collaborations so we can review hotels, places to play and other destinations for kids (or a parents night out!). Here’s a look at what I’ve done so far in this niche. I’d love to do more.
This is mom life. REAL mom life. It’s hauling all your kids sh*t through the hot sand back to the car, exhausted and hungry after a beach day.
Real talk:Why did no one ever warn me about the summer after your oldest goes off to school for the first time?? It’s not like being a SAHM of two again. Because the dynamic of each child’s personal freedom has changed. And it’s driving me crazy.
I want to talk about my husband for a sec. There’s no special occasion, it’s not his birthday. I just thought you might like to hear the story of how we met. It was in college, at Cal Poly SLO.
This is probably the shortest blog post ever. But here are some frost pics from Paso Robles, California. Taken with an iPhone in 35 degrees.
I recently asked our readers what their fave shows are to watch with their hubbies after the kiddos go to bed. Most said they break out all the secret snacks and stream some good ‘ol Netflix. So, I decided to make a list. In no ranking order, here’s the best shows to watch with the hubs.
The story behind this playhouse is it’s one of the first things I bought when I left my job to be a stay at home mom. I bought it for something crazy like $30 from another mom on buy/sell/trade. It was supposed to be my super cute Pinterest project to work on “when I had time” while I was at home with the kids. Cue the laughter.
In the beginning, I had structured the blog on reasons to get out of the house: and that was legit. Because inside the house, baby Wyatt would cry anytime I would try to finish ANY task if I wasn’t holding him.
I’m happy to share that the fine folks behind PASO Magazine (where we have a column) have created a second publication called Colony Magazine for our neighboring city of Atascadero!
And I’m absolutely honored for our Two in Tow column to be included in its inaugural issue published July 1, 2018!
In the last couple of weeks, I had three major deadlines to meet, a dislocated shoulder on the mend and a little boy who is bolting everywhere we go lately 🤗.
And I gotta say, all this with the other general everyday chaos of raising two littles and summer activities and basically five years without sleep …. I’m def feeling “my age”.
