Biba M Stroller

I have been on the hunt for a lightweight stroller that gives me more options than an umbrella stroller for a while and I am excited to share that all my musts are available in the Biba M Single stroller!

The Biba M Single checks all the boxes on my list: a fully reclining seat, oversized canopy, easy folding, larger basket, and it must be lightweight.

I don’t want to say I’m a stroller pro, but I have pushed my fair share of strollers around with three kids that I want to think I know a little haha. The Biba M is super easy to maneuver whether we are visiting the local shops or exploring the great outdoors.

Whether you are looking for a single or a double, I highly recommend checking out the collections from Biba M. They have a color for every personality and style. Check out more on their page HERE.

Beach days.

We had such an amazing Labor Day. We just hung out on the beach all day while the kids played and sweet Ellie even took a nap. Our smart edge outdoor blanket and toddler lounge from Lulyboo definitely made our day easier.

All my little water babies snuggled up eating snacks together was just what we needed.

Of course the easy clean up and storage options make my mama heart happy. The blanket rolls right up with a carrying handle and the lounge buckles into a backpack! Score! I’d say it was a successful day. Check out Lulyboo on IG HERE.

Hooded towels from Kindhood. Check them out on IG HERE.

Active life.

I always say I am such a city girl but I grew up in a very small town. While it’s not for me, I think kids really benefit from living a slower, outdoorsy life. It’s not always go go go. We have been exploring all that Utah has to offer us and these postpartum leggings have been amazing for all our activities! Lots of support and super comfy.

Nothing like a pair of leggings to give you the confidence you need!

Baby boot socks.

Nothing makes me swoon more than little accessories. Everything is just cuter in miniature size. I have become obsessed with boot socks this fall. They are so adorable and add a little touch to any outfit. So when I saw baby boot socks, you bet i had to have them. Perfect for the fall days when they weather is getting chilly, all the way into winter with some cute Uggs or duck boots. We are still in the in-between seasons here. Somedays it is warms and your dying because your heat was on and other days your have 3 layers on. Today I am going to share with you some cute outfit inspirations for you baby sock boots, worn by Bentleigh and Hurleigh!

Elexis Model Ogden Autumn Colors 2014-5015

I met Ryan Houston, of Ryan Houston Photography, on Facebook. Social media people, I am telling you. You can make so many amazing connections. Just be careful because there are those that try and abuse it.

He was, I would like to say, my door to the world of modeling and photography in Utah, because without his approval into “Models of Utah”, I would not have met him or any of the other amazing people I have met so far lol. So, thank you Ryan. He is truly a very kind, very talented photographer. We had talked about shooting long ago, but location has always been our down fall and his addiction to metal detecting. (:

When he ended up in my neck of the woods and wanted to shoot, I knew we had to. I wanted to do something fun and free. So, with free reign to do whatever I wanted, we ended up with this boho/hippie love that I like to call magic.

Ryan Houston Photography ladies and gentlemen, made me look like I was in the angelic lighting ever known to mankind. We tromped through the mud, and I was doing high steps through super tall grass, and ever second was worth it.

And since I wanted to share ALL of the photos with you, and of course posting every one of them to my Instagram is probably not what my followers want to see, they will go here! Thank you Ryan, you are amazing. If you are in the Salt Lake area find Ryan Houston Photography on Facebook and check out the rest of his work.

Rags to Raches

The end of summer came and we are slowly moving into fall. This is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love the layers and every fall essential that comes with dressing the boys. This amazing romper from Rags to Raches is perfect for fall layering. It is so soft and breathable. Very roomy and comfortable for all those little wild children that love to run around. Hurleigh has been obsessed with these Hunter boots since the moment he got them. He would wear them every day if I let him, cue buying my colors for fall. And everything flannel, well I’m from Minnesota and flannel has its own spot on the color wheel up there lol. It can still be pretty warm here during the day, but mornings and nights are pretty cool. Tie a sweater or button up around your little ones waist to have it on hand whenever they get a little chilly. Make sure to check out Rags to Raches for more amazing items too, they have some of the best rompers coming out that I have been waiting for very impatiently lol.

That chocolate milk face gets me every time! Say hello to grumpy cat! (:

Playground Fun

We got lucky and have a playground right in our community, but it is fun to take the boys out and explore new playgrounds. It has been crazy hot out, talking 90+ every day so our trips have been very short. We have also discovered that Hurleigh HATES, and when I say hate I mean scream bloody murder, tears whole shebang hate, the pool or splash pad. That’s making for an exceptionally hot summer. We managed to get him at least in the tiny kiddie pool at home, so that is a start. We got a cooler day so we took full advantage of it. We have been going to movie in the park on Monday nights and right next to the amphitheater is a pretty great playground that Beni has been begging to play at. We had a shoot in downtown Ogden so we took the boys over for some much needed play time.

Matching outfits can only mean one thing… photo shoot! Those pictures will be up later along with a HUGE surprise. They had so much fun. They are the best little partners in crime. Beni always makes sure Hurleigh is okay and helps him up to the slide and down. I can share with you one sneak peek from another shoot with the amazing Toni J Studios. Stay tuned for the whole shoot soon featuring this amazing tank from The Printed Palatte.
