Life Lately: Scottsdale + JT


Oh Scottsdale! We escaped to the desert over the kid's ski break to get away from the snow. And well...it SNOWED there too! It was really wild, but still nice to spend some time with friends and family!


Thank goodness for a hot jacuzzi...it was about 50 degrees in this photo though! 


Also thank goodness for yummy cocktails! We love Tonto Grill in Cave Creek in case you're in the area! Shop my sweater {on sale!} + camo shirt + ring!



Due to the cold weather, we decided to check out the aquarium one day. It was a good little energy burn for the boys!



And the boys all went hiking, while the moms went shopping!


How most of our nights looked...thank goodness for Uggs and blankets {and wine!}!


No snow was going to slow us down! ;)



Also thank goodness for indoor bowling! Bowlero is definitely somewhere we'd go back!


Last, thank goodness for good friends who fly in from the snow...only to put up with more snow! We need a re-do!


Just one night after flying back from Scottsdale, a couple of us mamas went to go to see JT! I also just got this top, and love it for the spring!


We had seats on the floor and it was SO neat seeing him up close and personal. He puts on a great show!


Last, I couldn't sign off without telling you about my new coat purchase. It's the coveted "Amazon Jacket" and it's worth all the hype! You cannot beat the price point and it is SO warm! Like Tahoe snow warm! 100% worth it!

Stock up for Spring!


Pants + Sandals + Swimsuit + Ear Cuff + Blouse + Earrings

The Shopbop Spring Sale event is here and it's always a good one! I feel like it's the best time to stock up on spring essentials like swimsuits, sandals and sunglasses! Also, if you have upcoming weddings, it's definitely worth scoring a dress. I have my eye on this one for an upcoming wedding!

Happy Shopping!

Pretty Things for Valentine's Day!


Valentine's Day is less than 10 days away! We usually do something low key, like cook dinner at home, but I always love the sentiment of letting our loved ones know how much we love them! Ethan and Wyatt will be passing out Valentine's Day cards to their classmates and I'm sure I'll put together little goodie bags for them to wake up to.

If you're the "going out to a fancy dinner" type, then you should definitely check out one of these cute dresses or blouses! So fun!

Shopbop Sale Picks



Shopbop is having a huge sale right now {up to 70% off} and I combed through all 22 pages...TWICE! to pick out my favorites! These are all items I would buy today...or have already bought! In fact, these are my favorite jeans {they fit me so well} and I just bought these boots! They're so cute with wide leg pants or tights and a dress! They're so comfortable, I wore them all day today and had no issues.

This duster is in my cart...I just don't think you can ever go wrong with cashmere! And I love this dress for Valentine's Day! Also this is so sweet for spring...I'm actually loving this whole brand!

Happy Shopping!

Lately


+ We celebrated Wyatt's FOURTH birthday a couple weekends ago...you can see more photos here. Shop the donut stand and candle.

+ I started a new tab for Schue Casa at the top labeled "Our Home" so you can find resources for our new build.

+ Speaking of Schue Casa, I recently ordered this, this and this for the new house!

+ Are you watching The Bachelor this season? I always read these recaps!

+ We made this bolognese the other night and it is REALLY good!

+ For me, I recently purchased these workout leggings {size down!}, this face serum {I've heard amazing things about how it helps with pores and acne scars} and these versatile pants {in golden brown}!

+ Loving all the cute Meri Meri Valentine's Day decorations right now!

Recent Random Amazon Buys


It's been a minute since I last shared my most recent Amazon purchases, and I always love seeing what others buy, so I thought it was time for an update! Past posts can be found here, here and here!

Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls: Kind of random, but we kept finding that we were short mixing bowls over the holidays. This set is super functional, durable and affordable. Win-win all around!

Memory Foam Dog Bed: Wilson definitely got an upgrade with this bed! For sizing reference, we got the biggest size and we definitely could have sized down {he's a 90 pound golden retriever!}. Again, the price can't be beat!

Bathroom Scale: How pretty is this scale? Our last one took a nose dive so we were in need of a new one. This one is sleek enough to leave out!

Fur Collar: Want to take your wool coat, leather jacket or long cardigan up a notch? This is such a fun way to add a little something extra to your wardrobe! And the price, once again, makes it totally worth it! I got the "raccoon" color in the 120 cm length. I've also heard good things about the "deep khaki color".

Shun Chef's Knife: For the chef in your life...good knives make a HUGE difference in the kitchen! This is 100% worth it! Trust me, once you have a good {sharp} knife, you'll never go back!

Modern Trash Bin: Who knew trash cans could be so pretty? We have two of these and love them!

Tinkle Sticks: I've talked about these before, but they're worth mentioning again! Say goodbye to peach fuzz and dead skin and say hello to super soft and glowy skin!

Rose Gold Eyelash Curler: I don't normally curl my eyelashes {they're naturally pretty curly...as are my eyebrows, which is super annoying!} but when I do, I use this curler. Check out those reviews!

Stemless Champagne Flutes: Perfect for large parties where you have something special to celebrate. Or you just want a mimosa!

Wine Markers: And since you can't add charms to stemless wine {or champagne} glasses, this will totally do the trick! And they wash right off in the dishwasher!

Wyatt Turns 4! A Gift Guide


Happy New Year! I'm back because...

Wyatt turns FOUR this weekend! I can't believe it! I swear I was just talking about potty training and pulling pacis from this guy and now he's practically an adult! I just can't believe my baby is turning FOUR!

You can see Ethan's gift guide here!

Wyatt really loves reading and building things so we wanted to make sure to add some fun books to his collection. We also got him this and this! Oh! And since he's obsessed with Magna-Tiles, we got him an extension set to add to his fun!

Last, he still enjoys his play kitchen, so we thought we'd add some fun food to whip us for us! We also got him this cute dessert set.

PS...here's a hint at the theme for his birthday party!
