Who has been to @wearehappyplace pop-up?! Mason’s favorite part was jumping into the huge ball pit. Swipe thru...the look on his face is pure joy! #WeAreHappyPlace leaves Chicago September 3rd so either go back or check it out ASAP!
What was your favorite room⁉️ 🤩

POTTY TRAINING #thestruggleisreal 🚽Today was Day 1 of our 5 day Potty Training Bootcamp with Mason. We ditched the diapers, stayed home, and celebrated every pee and poop in the potty. I'm pretty sure I've said “pee”, “poop”, or “potty” over 3,000 times today...along with cleaning it! 🤭
Wish me luck for Day 2! Parents/nannies, preschool teachers, please share 👇🏽any advice and tips! What worked for you?! 📷: @hannahschweissphotography

15 years together! Today marks our Dating Anniversary 🖤 I can’t believe how long it’s been, and all the funny memories. Like the time when we were making out in your car and a cop shined his flashlight through the window 💋 What’s YOUR funny/crazy dating moment⁉️

BIRTHDAY TRADITION🍜 Long noodles, long life. It’s a Filipino tradition to eat noodles on your birthday for longevity. Last night I slurped on #glutenfree noodles thinking of all the reasons why I’m grateful for the year I had. What are YOUR birthday traditions?! 🖤 Would love to know! 👇🏽#leoseason

✌🏽weeks until I guest teach at @yogaonthelakekohler 🖤Sweat with me on Thursday, August 23rd 8am for a Soul Sculpt Hot class! Grab your squad, and take a quick trip to Kohler, Wisconsin! Have you gone?! I haven’t been there in years. There will definitely be a #KohlerWaterSpa treatment happening. What are your Kohler recommendations?! #DestinationKohler 📷: @hannahschweissphotography

“Don't take any pictures of me" is what I requested during Mason's newborn photoshoot. I didn't want any evidence of me exhausted, swollen, and not having a clue of what I was doing. Thank you for not listening to me, Heather! This is one of my favorite photos with Mason. ✨
In honor of #WorldBreastfeedingWeek I'm sharing this as a reminder that it takes a village to raise a baby. Whatever a mother's feeding journey is, she needs support. Exclusively breastfeeding, pumping, or formula...doesn't matter, support her. Check in with how she is feeling, offer her water/food/wine, help with washing bottles, and don't care if she decides to feed without a cover. 📷: @vavoomstudios

I was MIA on Instagram last weekend for the BEST reason...I was co-hosting a baby shower for my little sister!  This soon-to-be Colorado mama was surrounded by all her favorite Chicago family, friends, and food at @evolveher. Congratulations @sheila_marie12 and @whosalex86 You two are going to be the coolest family rocking your Jordans. 👟😎
A huge thank you to the other fabulous co-hosts @c.cabasa and @zaybaebay_ , you ladies went above and beyond 🙌🏽, @isabelbythepark for the amazing cake and infamous lemon-pistachio cookies, and @tonipatisseriecafe for whipping up the cutest rainbow cookies in a pinch! 🌈 Sheila + Alex we can’t wait to meet your baby girl!

My 2 favorites activities. How can you not #hydrate with these delicious @wtrmlnwtr flavors?!

Mid-week Mood Boost:
✨ Schedule a fun date mid work week with your squad that lifts you up and makes you laugh until you snort.
✨ Get dolled up with said squad because if you’re stressed, put on a dress.
✨ Devour food with a view at @devereauxchicago rooftop. My faves are the hummus plate and buffalo cauliflower.
✨ Post a picture from that ladies lunch a week later then let the planning begin for the next one!
😳 The past several weeks I’ve been quite anxious waiting on some news (everything is good!), traveling, planning an event, and now getting back into work mode. What are your fave mood boosters?!

How I dressed up an old pair of @lululemon sweat-wicking shorts to stay cool at @disneyland is all linked for you! This $13 boater hat is adjustable too. 🙌🏽 I also linked the UPF 50+ umbrella I used when walking around. It literally kept me 10 degrees cooler. Who else loves dressing up #athleisure pieces?! #liketkit .

THIS IS 3. I had to bribe Mason with a Buzz Lightyear action figure to take a picture with me. I should have negotiated smiling and facing the camera part of the deal. How do you get your toddler to take a pic?!
