I have so many things I love about Corey, but perhaps one of the things I love and appreciate most: He is constantly planning what our retirement will look like. While I’m scheming for our next vacation he is getting giddy over what we’ll be doing together when we’re retired and our kids are out of the house. Truthfully, I am more sad than excited thinking about that time, but when I have someone who is simultaneously so present and joyful in the trenches of parenting young kids, but also looking ahead with such excitement to growing old with me? Well, I can’t think of anything that makes me feel more loved.
We aren’t big on Valentine’s Day, so we won’t be going on a hot date or exchanging sappy love notes today (unless you count this as one 🤷🏻‍♀️), but I do love an opportunity to reflect on how lucky in love we are. We’re 10 Valentine’s Days in and I can’t wait to not celebrate 60+ more together @cdenfeld 😋 📸: @jennikupelian

When you #canteven with your daughter’s outfit. Listen, I know I buy all her clothes and basically tell her what to wear, but she rocks these looks and I just want to eat her up (and look half as cute as her 💁🏻‍♀️). She’ll be four in 2.5 months and all I can think about is how we really lucked out with this one right here. She is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy 💗🔥 P.S. She has already asked if we can come back to Sunriver and we haven’t even left yet. Girlfriend likes a good vacay, just like her mama 😂 { Screenshot or 'like' this pic to shop the product details from the LIKEtoKNOW.it app or get the details sent straight to your inbox!} http://liketk.it/2ueC5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Well, when we planned this Eastern Oregon getaway we assumed there would be snow on the ground (there was at least 5+ feet on the ground this time last year!), but instead we got 50s and sunny. I guess complaining about that would be blasphemous!? Enjoying our time in Sunriver nonetheless 🤗 Hope you’re all having a great weekend! {Linked up my coat, jeans, similar boots and stroller here 👉🏼 http://liketk.it/2uemw } #liketkit #ltkfamily @liketoknow.it

First photo: Genuine laughs/smiles courtesy of Uncle Trevor showing us his abs 😂 Second photo: Can’t even deal with Elodie’s perfect little head tilt. Who is she?! Words can’t explain how happy this little crew makes me! Can’t wait for many more happy memories with them in 2018 ❤️

I have dreamed of taking Elodie to the nutcracker pretty much since I found out we were having a baby girl, and yesterday we got to make that dream a reality. We put on our fancy clothes, had a swanky lunch at Q {which was decorated impeccably for the holidays and just felt like a festive meal right out of the movies!), then walked over to the Keller to watch the show. It was just as magical as I had hoped it would be and it is a day I won’t soon forget (and I hope Elodie remembers forever!). For those that have been asking for details on my dress, I put a link in my profile! You can also get the product details for this look and others by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and/or just liking or screenshooting this image! My advice is to size up in this dress - I am wearing a medium and I am typicall a size 2/4! ❤️ http://liketk.it/2tYyh #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkfamily

Can’t believe it’s only four more sleeps until Christmas! We did an advent calendar for the first time this year and it has been the perfect motivator to do all those Christmasy things — we’ve done Zoo Lights, PIR, the Grotto, decorated gingerbread houses, made salt dough ornaments and so much more! Every year just gets more and more fun as the kids get older; I wish all the festivities could last just a bit longer! Going to spend the next five days soaking up alllll the magic. Hope you are doing the same with your families ❤️🎄✨

THIS PHOTO WAS NOT STAGED! 😍 These are the sweet moments between siblings you envision from the moment you get pregnant with your second baby. And when they happen, they are so heart-melting you ALMOST, ALMOST forget all the whining, bickering and crying between them (mostly over wanting the exact same toy, because we obviously don’t have a house full of them!). Any tips for handling all the fighting?! James is more often than not the instigator and has been known to throw a punch or a swift kick to his poor sister 😞 Linked as much as I could here ➡️ http://liketk.it/2tKIG, the rest is tagged! #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkhome

Yesterday’s cure for a REALLY long week and a nap-striking toddler {I’m looking at you, James! 👀}... A downtown adventure to see Christmas lights, a Christmas tree and pick up pizza for grandma and the kids {‘cause mom & dad had a double date night 🙌🏼}. Fresh air is always the answer, even if it’s cold & grey 🎄❄️🌟 {I’ve linked up our absolute favorite stroller and the kids’ outfits for your here! http://liketk.it/2tHkG } #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkfamily

Let’s just say this isn’t my typical view for lunch 😍 There were moments I found myself almost forgetting I was in Portland and not tucked into an unassuming alley in the Jordaan District in Amsterdam enjoying a delicious Italian meal of assorted antipasti and simple, house-made spaghetti. This place is such a gem! Thank you for the recommendation @carly.e.diaz! You never steer me wrong ❤️ Now back to regularly scheduled programming of picking Cheerios up off the ground and trying to make sure our toddler doesn’t tear our Christmas tree down 😅 This was nice while it lasted!

This is literally the best we could do for a family photo yesterday. I have a spoon in my hand, James has whipped cream on his face and looks like he’s about to vom (that’s just his pouting face 🤷🏻‍♀️). This is what happens when you’re trying to bribe a 1.5-year-old with whipped cream. Not the best idea I’ve ever had 😂 But look at Elodie — she’s got this angelic posing thing down 😇 I couldn’t love this crazy crew more!! 💓 Hope you all had the most wonderful day yesterday! We’re so excited to go cut down our Christmas tree today and start getting our house super festive!! It’s FINALLY the most wonderful time of the year!!🎄

I want for nothing. So thankful for these three that fill my life with ultimate joy and love, even on the hardest of days. Wishing you and yours a day of full bellies and full hearts 💗 Happy Thanksgiving! 📸: @jennikupelian

Sundays are mostly spent trying to catch up on cleaning around here, because if we go into the week with a messy house .... Well it just keeps getting messier and messier until the next weekend rolls around. At least this way we start with a clean slate that we can slowly trash by the end of the week 🤷🏻‍♀️ Seriously, trying to keep a house clean with two kids around is nearly impossible (how all of you with 3+ kids do it is a mystery to me!)😫 And so many people tell me to let it go and lower my expectations ... Trust me, I have. When I say “clean” I really mean “tidy”. Don’t look too close or you’ll see weeks of dust in the corners 🙈 Planning to reward myself for my hard work with some Mexican food tonight 💃🏻 Hope you’re having a great Sunday! 💗 {sources linked here http://liketk.it/2tvUx } #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkhome

Just saw this photo of James on the product page for this onesie on the @cheerily.co site and it reminded me how much I love it! And of how much I miss nursing this chunk of love 😭 There are so many times I wish I could transport myself back in time to get another moment with my smaller babes ... All the more reason to remember to soak up all the precious moments in the here and now. Can be so much easier said than done, especially in the midst of the tough days, but I am committed to giving it my all because #babiesdontkeep 💔

G R A T E F U L ... For my mom, who literally dropped everything and jumped into her car to save the day when I came down with the flu while solo parenting this week. These things have the worst timing don’t they?
I am so lucky I have so much help here in Portland, especially now with Corey’s new travel schedule, but I’ll admit it is still really hard for me to accept help without guilt. I think about how I am inconveniencing people. I feel weak for not being able to handle things on my own. It’s been a process for me to take the help I need, but I’m definitely getting better. It’s so humbling and really makes me want to help others when I have the capacity.
Anyway, happy hump day. Today I am especially thankful for my health and all the wonderful helpers that help me get through the tough moments life throws at me! 💗

S U N D A Y mornin’ rain is fallin’ ... 🎶 My #basic breakfast, pretty much every morning: Avocado toast topped with a fried egg and a sprinkle of @traderjoes Everything But The Bagel Seasoning (how I lived the majority of my life without this seasoning is beyond me, it is soooo good!). And don’t forget the big cup of @stumptowncoffee, since these crazy kids (talking about me and Corey not my ACTUAL kids 😅) were up until midnight after a fun double date! We just don’t recover like we used to 😴😒 #wereoldnow

Look at my mini budding fashion blogger 😂😍 I get asked all the time where I shop for the kids — both of their closets are 85% Old Navy or Gap! The rest would be Zara, H&M or Carter’s, but I just love the price (NEVER pay full price — they always have a sale online, especially for CC holders), quality and style that ON and Gap offer so we hardly ever stray! Popped into Old Navy yesterday because they are currently doing 50% off ALL jeans, sweaters and outerwear! Now the kids are all stocked up for winter 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Linked this outfit and a few of our other favorite purchases here 👉🏼 http://liketk.it/2tpzk #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ltkfamily (hat is Zara, everything else @oldnavy!)

home sweet home 💙 made it back late last night after a really long day of travel! Today it’s cold and rainy in Portland. Daddy is back at work, E is back at school and I’m home working on a trillion loads of laundry and hopefully grocery shopping later since we have no food in our house! so glad tomorrow is friday already 🙌🏼 {p.s. our dining room needs a little love — thinking a frame wall on the right. I wish we could do curtains but there’s no space! sources tagged!}

Farewell, Charleston and all your pink, flower-boxed cuteness (and really, really ridiculously good food!). Our family really enjoyed getting to experience the southern hospitality we’d heard so much about, and never tired of the sweet strangers who complimented us on our “beautiful family” —� even though our children were most likely acting like complete hooligans at the time! We will most definitely be back (probably without said hooligans 🙃) 💓

A beautiful end to yesterday’s beautiful day 🌅 I’ll never forget the way the kids stared at the gorgeous sunset in awe and wonder.

Traveling with {small} children: Walking four miles feels like forty. Trying to get good pictures is a lost cause. They don’t care about sightseeing, only parks and trying to jump into large bodies of water and changing their minds 50 times on what they want to do (horsey ride! beach! park!). Announcing loudly that they need to poop. Dance parties in restaurants (and almost bumping into many waiters). Long naps in hotel bathrooms when you’d rather be out doing things (and interesting how a certain 18-month-old hardly ever takes long naps at home 🤔). Knowing that no matter how hard and crazy it is, you wouldn’t want to be here seeing and doing it all without them 💗 {p.s. my already big hair is even bigger in Charleston — it’s clear I’d never survive the summer here!} #havebabywilltravel #travelingwithkids

Had this entire rooftop all to ourselves to take in a beautiful sunset 💗💜💛

Just as beautiful in person as I imagined it would be. Now if only my kids would’ve let me hang out in here longer than four minutes 🤔 Will have to pop back in while the kids are napping one day so I can really soak it all in! 😍 #travelingwithkids #charlestonsc

We made it to Charleston! It was a long day of travel yesterday, but all things considered the kids actually did really great! And keeping them on Portland time for daylight savings was actually pretty genius — we all got a full night of rest and weren’t up crazy early 🙌🏼🙌🏼 We just finished a crazy good brunch at @butcherandbee (thanks to all who recommended it!) and now we’re off to explore downtown! So far we are loving this adorable city! 💗 {p.s. a picture with all of us smiling at the camera?! can’t believe it!}

We’re hanging in our jammies all day and finishing up packing for Charleston tomorrow!!! As I was organizing tiny pairs of socks and underwear and reviewing my master checklist for the millionth time I was reminiscing on what prepping for a trip used to mean ... Shopping for the perfect outfits for the destination, getting a mani/pedi and finishing my prep with a spray tan. HAHA! Oh man that makes me laugh. Now I’m just happy if I remember to pack myself underwear and a toothbrush 💁🏻 My nails are a chipped mess and I am looking pale and haggard after a couple crazy weeks. But you know what? We’re going to be in a beautiful place with nothing to do but soak up time with our little family. So I really couldn’t care less about any of that other stuff (but I mean, if any of you wanted to come over and babysit while I went and pampered myself I wouldn’t turn you down! 😜)! Cheers to the weekend fun ahead 🥂
