House Projects to Consider in 2023

We are nearing the end of the year and one thing that is on my mind for 2023 is house projects and renovations. When you do house projects and/or renovations, you could go big or you could go small. Even the smallest project (like decluttering) is still a home improvement! Whatever you need or want, focus on that. But, if you are not sure where to start, here are some house projects to consider in 2023. These should help improve the re-sale value of your home which is definitely something to keep in mind!

Surviving Our Season of Hectic Schedules

Surviving our Season of Hectic Schedules

This post is sponsored by Sahale Snacks but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Our schedule this fall is a doozy. With both Kurtis and I working full time, the kids splitting their time between their nanny, their grandmas, and us, and Sawyer starting Pre-K, I essentially had to jump through a lot of hoops to make our scheduled work for everyone.

Our New Normal

Hi friends ❤️ Long time, no post. I’m still figuring out how this space and this little business fits into my new life as a full time working Mom.

I’m over 90 days in now and I’m finally starting to feel like I have a handle on our new schedule. I’m really happy and our family is thriving within this new normal. I never want to give up this creative space of mine, or the backup source of income that comes with blogging, I’m just still trying to figure out how to do all the things with only 24 hours in a day ??‍♀️June is looking EXTRA crazy. I just finished up a 3 day event for work that is our biggest of the year, I have a business trip next week, our boys birthdays are at the end of the month, and we’re MOVING on the 1st!

The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE

Thank you to Toyota for loaning us this Camry and hosting us for this incredible trip!

If you follow my Instgram, you know Kurtis and I recently went on a road trip in a Toyota Camry XLE. When we got invited on this trip, I couldn’t believe it! Toyota loaned us a Camry to road trip from Denver to Scottsdale, hosted us at the Talking Stick Resort for 3 nights, took us to Spring Training baseball games, and flew us home! We had a complete blast.

how to save money during a weekend in Las Vegas, featured by top US travel blog, All Things Lovely

A Fun Weekend in Las Vegas

Visiting Las Vegas can often be a fun, relaxing, and often inexpensive getaway for couples, girls weekends, even family vacations! Vegas is the perfect place to spend a few days unwinding. While it’s often known as “Sin City” there are also plenty of wholesome and family friendly things to do too!

Kurtis and I spent 2 days in Vegas a few weeks ago and had a blast! It was great to get away just the two of us for a few days. Kurtis was going for a work convention and we decided I should tag along so we could make a belated anniversary celebration out of it. It was a great way to ring in the 5 year mark!

Let me apologize in advance for the photo quality, this was a personal and quick weekend trip and we opted to pack lightly and not take our big camera so these are all iPhone only!

Parenting on the go with Cybex

Thank you to Cybex for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

I have a confession as a Mom of two. I think one of the hardest parts of my life is taking my kids somewhere. Not just being out in public with them, but the physical act of leaving the house.

The Best Facial in Denver

Thank you to Pure and Lovely Skincare for hosting me for a facial! All  opinions are my own. 

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a facial at Pure and Lovely Skincare and it was incredible. Brianne is an old friend of mine and the best esthetician in the game. She recently ventured out to start her own business and boy, is it a smash.

Pure and Lovely Skincare is a relaxing oasis just outside of Denver, worth the drive from wherever you are. It was just the mental escape I needed from my screaming kids, and my skin needed it too.

bath time with Triple Wash and Triple Soap featured by top US lifestyle blog, All Things Lovely

Bath Time Every Night with Triple Wash and Triple Soap

This Triple Wash and Triple Soap post is sponsored by Summers Laboratories on behalf of Everywhere Agency however; all opinions are my own.

It’s no secret that my kids have had a rough time sleeping. Sawyer was a great sleeper as a baby but for some reason, as soon as he turned 2, he was up almost nightly. And Oliver has almost never slept through the night!
Recently, we started using a sleep coach to help them sleep through the night. While I can’t share our specific plan, I will tell you that one of her biggest tips was bathing the kids every night. At first I thought that was crazy! First of all, it takes a decent amount of time and effort to bathe the kids. Second, I had always heard that bathing them every night was bad for their skin.
