• What's in Our Diaper Bag

    I’ll start out by saying we love our physical diaper bag (here’s a similar one). We initially got it because Myke wanted a neutral looking one so it wouldn’t look too weird with him carrying it. I didn’t mind what the diaper bag looked like, as long as it had all the components I needed. Currently, Olivia doesn’t require much when we go out, but Meghan still needs a few extra things. So what do…

  • Mini Adventure: California State Railroad Museum

    “We’re going on an adventure!” Allison said as she opened the door to the girl’s room on a Saturday morning. Still a little sleepy from their nap the girls looked at us and smiled. Olivia started bouncing in her bed and Meghan pointed at us repeating her current favorite phrase “Dada dada dada”. After getting the girls dressed and shoes, we gave them a quick snack/lunch and had Olivia get the jackets. It was time…

  • Christmas Stockings for the Girls

I’ve always been big on family traditions and “go-to” recipes to make whenever we’re in the mood for something delicious! Saturdays have been a very special day for us. When we were in our…

  • Thanksgiving 2019

    Even though we have lived in Sac for over a year now, it still feels weird to not travel so much the week of Thanksgiving. Last year Meghan was only a week old, and it was difficult to really go anywhere, but I’m happy I was able to make the trip to Lodi, especially because my brother and sister-in-law were in town. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to make the trip out this year, so we…
