Sunsets & Palm Trees

Family + Baby, Food + Drink, Travel

Because me and Aaron just can’t seem to sit still, we decided to do a little staycation in good ole Palm Springs! This was out first trip together with Callan so it made it extra special and so much fun!

We kicked off our getaway off with non other than The Cabazon Dinosaurs, I mean it would just be wrong if we didn’t! Of course, there are is the giant Tyrannosaurus and Apatosaurus you can see when you drive past, but what people don’t really know is that it is actually a whole attraction!


Inside there is a pathway full of all kinds of dinosaurs and alligators, fossils digs for the kids as well as mining for gold! The best part though, is the gift shop. It has a bunch of robotic, moving dinosaurs inside and all kinds of goodies. Not to mention its AIR CONDITIONED! *praise hands*


By the time we were done with the dinosaurs, we were all pretty hungry and ready for dinner. We showered, got cleaned up and headed to the cutest restaurant downtown named Birba.


We shared a couple of pizzas and pastas which were all really good, but I highly recommend the Margarita pizza and the Tagliatelle pasta.

After, we ended the night with a little dip in the pool!


If you guys haven’t been to Kings Highway located in the Ace Hotel, you are missing out my friends. It was so cute, and the people were so friendly!


Being the ice cream lover that I am, I needed to get my fix at Ice Cream & Shop(pe) just next to Arrive Hotel (another one on my list of places to stay).


But let’s be real, the only real way to heat that desert heat is the pool!


We stayed at The Saguaro, where the colors are everywhere and pool floats are welcome!


Killin’ time before dinner and wearing out the little miss…

Callan would not go down for a nap, even after all day playing in the pool so we decided to just let her run around and really tire her out. We hit the big grassy areas by the pool and played around for a little. We wanted our last day there to be super mellow and not have to go anywhere for dinner, so we eat at the Mexican restaurant El Jefe in our hotel. Which ended up being a good decision because Callan passed out right after we got our water ha! So, we took our food to the room, and watched the bachelorette. It was perfect.IMG_1091

Remember how I said the King’s Highway was really good? Well, it was so good we had it for lunch the next day! Callan wasn’t opposed either, i mean look at that happy face!

& those little photo bombin’ peace sign fingers…


Grabbed some Koffi an strolled through down town before we headed home!


& that’s how we do Palm Springs! We had such a great little staycation, when we were packing up our stuff Callan asked if we could live there forever! I would say that’s a successful trip haha! & we already can’t wait for many more to come this Summer! Where do you think we should we go next?!

Project Me & You

ME: Working more hours than I have in my entire life between two jobs and being a mom. Ironically, trying to slowly cut coffee out of my diet even with the lack of sleep I get, just because I think it would be better for my health. Really considering going back to school, just trying to work out the scheduling. Trying to get outside and travel as much as I possibly can because life is about freakin’ living my friends! Hustled to get a passport in time for an upcoming trip because a new law required it for all flights including domestic, only for the effective date to get pushed back until 2020. Awesome. Chopped my locks and go back and fourth between if I should keep it short or grow it back out because I kind of miss it every now and then. Also, go brown?? Can’t decide. Upgraded to Spotify premium and wondering why it ever took me so long, especially with my music ADD. Thinking about upgrading my car as well. Can feel it in my bones that 2018 is going to be real good to me.

YOU: Cooking up a storm in your play kitchen on the daily. Rearranging all your toys and putting them around the house in very specific, random spots you think they should be. Talk about baby brothers and baby sisters all the time and asked if we could get one from Target. Collects boxes and needs to bring at least one with us where ever we go. Most of the time you start your sentences with “Sometimes I…” and tells me “that’s enough” when you want me to stop doing something like brush your hair. When you get caught doing something you’re not supposed to be doing you immediately say “nothing.” and hide the evidence. Still a picky eater but starting to really take a liking to chicken and fancy cheese plates. Will sit and watch the bachelor with me and during the rose ceremony will call me up to except a rose from you…of course I accept every time. Decided you didn’t want to wear diapers one day and potty trained yourself like it was nothing. Will call me from the other room just to tell me you love me.

Family + Baby

Last weekend, I attended the very first ever Babychella. It was so nuts ! Adorable babes in flower crowns and lots of activities everywhere you looked. It happened to be on one of the hottest days and was packed so I was happy I decided not to bring Callan. Plus, I actually had a chance to stop and look at all the cute shops and booths without worrying if my little boho babe was off chasing bubbles or something haha ! Anyways, I scored this adorable little handmade wooden camera for Callan and I got to meet the women who made it! That’s one of my favorite parts about shopping small businesses, because you really get to see who is behind all of it, its way more personal and meaningful.

When I saw this camera I knew Callan would love it, she’s always using our phones or something similar to pretend taking our picture, so I knew I couldn’t leave without it. If you want to get a camera for your own little one or someone you know might want one, head over to her site here, and check them out !

Also, I’ve received lots of messages about where Callans blue and white stripped shirt (worn in the pictures below) is from and it’s from a shop called Tot Mart, also a small shop we meet at Babychella. They have a ton of the cutest clothes, it was hard to narrow it down. You can shop them here.
