Spring Flowers & Spring Showers

Life & Things

If it weren’t for the spring showers we wouldn’t have these beautiful flowers, so instead of being bummed our spring picnic got rained out I am going to be grateful for the amazing time we had regardless. It took me a day to come to this conclusion, I was pretty bummed that I couldn’t continue with the planned out shoot I was imaging but after seeing these kiddos embrace the weather and play together outside, it all felt so right!

My in-laws grow daffodils and whatever they don’t end up picking blooms in the field, this year we took advantage of the beauty and captured our kiddos. It was a pleasure to have Julie of Quantum Images Inc out in the field capturing the chaos of 8 kids and 5 adults playing around the flowers. We had some good falls and one of my favorite parts of all was coming in when we were finished and Sophie said, “Fun.. Mommy!…. Fun!”

  • Evelyn’s looking at me like... “really I’m stuck with you all the time now 🤷🏼‍♀️” and I’m like, “ yah girl.. triple chin and all 🤣😂” but seriously... When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

Thanks for the snap @sugarplumlaurel | Stroller @diono
  • Getting new frames soon and want to hear what you all think. I picked out my top three styles and want to put it to a vote. Comment below which pair you like the best (swipe left to see all three)

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?
•
There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
