New cuts for the sisters. 💇🏻
Back to napping in his bed (ok, my bed) where he belongs. #homesweethome
One last bit of magic before heading home.
Hazel's travel goals: break the rules at at least one park in each of these fine states. 🖕😂
Get it. 🍩
A quick stop on the road to Nashville means lunch for all, a little milk for the babe and some time to get the wiggles and giggles out for the girls. Since adding these chaturanga tights from @athleta to my wardrobe last week I haven't done a minute of yoga, but I've chased around my kids and spent hours road tripping to the gulf coast. I'll get around to the yoga eventually, but for now I'm loving just how comfortable I am, relaxing with the people I love the most. #powerofshe #sponsored
Finally checked this off of her bucket list. 🌴
Saying goodbye to the waves.
Our little home for the week.
Coffee date. ☕️
Pretending I have time for reading with three kids on the beach.😉
Accidental simultaneous vacations with friends are the best.
When we first put our feet in, I looked at Chris and said, Are you crying? He wasn't, but I may have been projecting. To share this with the people I love the most...❤️
Zoof-cakes vs the ice cream cone
Someone discovered dirt today.
Hasta luego, Madre! 🚵🏻♀️
Alpaca hangs with @lacystroess and her crew. ✌🏻
Apparently this is what the face of a very sick baby on a pharmacy trip looks like. Seriously, chill baby award goes to you, Nolan Daniel.
Watching them grow up together is so sweet.
We're driving out to the coast in a couple of weeks and I'm working on my vacation reading list. Give your best recommendations! I'm not typically into beachy reads so it might be helpful to know that some recent reads that really gripped me included Americanah, Tomorrow Will Be Different, Landline, The Wonder, The Sound of Gravel, and The Namesake. I tend to read dark, but ideally I would really like to read something lighthearted and fun that isn't twaddle. It is vacation, after all.
Painting our feelings today and our feelings chart just so happens to have hungover on it. Clementine had some questions about that one and I tried my best to explain it in a kid appropriate way. Now she thinks that must be how Grandma got a cold. Sorry, mom. 😆 (Bottom: optimism, right: sad, top: sad mommy and daddy suns)
On Sundays, I set up my Trello board for the week, we nap a little and eat pizza off of paper plates. I highly recommend this habit. 💯
An American Summer: Watermelon Stains on My OshKosh Overalls. 😎
Now that I'm 5, I'm REALLY, REALLY heavy. When I was 4, I was only REALLY heavy. Hazoof is only 3, so she's only kind of heavy. Mom! Did you know you're almost 30? Happy Birthday Pancakes and deep thoughts with Clementine. She wouldn't have it any other way. ❤️🎂
My house is a mess, my baby is teething, and deadlines are looming but at least my dinner was damn delicious.
5 is going to be a big year.
Monday things: working on getting my newsletter out and a new blog post up. Posting more freelance writing related content at @marysauerwrites soon. Follow along there!
This girl is so loved by so many sweet friends. ❤️
This girl giggled for two hours straight, so we're calling this splash party a huge success. 🎂
My office this morning and quite possibly the most gorgeous coffee shop in Kansas City.
Water baby 🕶
Feeling pretty great about learning to swim. 👍🏻
Messy-haired, food on her face Hazel is my favorite Hazel. Maybe because it's when she reminds me most of me? ❤️
Ramen got really popular during one of my pregnancies and I couldn't even look at the pictures because I was so sick. Finally had my first ramen experience today and it was worth the wait. 👌
Blueberry picking girls. ❤️
