Family Photoshoot by Karlie Colleen Photography

Yesterday my family met up with Karlie, who is going to start renting out dresses for photoshoots & events. She needed some photos done in this beautiful grey Jenny Yoo dress, and I happily volunteered to model it! She suggested we do a family shoot, which I was so excited about because we haven’t had a family photoshoot done in forever!
I am so obsessed with how these turned out. Thank you again, Karlie! If you are in the Phoenix area be sure to check her out!

Rad Dad Tees

Mom-life tees have become a very popular fashion trend among new mamas. There definitely isn’t a lack of designs or styles out there to choose from. Dad tees, on the other hand, are a little bit harder to find. My husband is pretty stylish, if I do say so myself. He has a “rocker-vibe”, and has tattoos from his chest, down to his feet. Finding dad-tees that he will actually wear is tough, as he’s pretty picky about his t-shirts.
With that said, I have found a few that he really likes.
I wanted to share some of his favorites with you today!

Logan’s Favorite Dad-Life Tees


Father-Hood: Takin’ Care Of Business by Root Avenue
This is Logan’s all time favorite because, well, he helped design it! He has wanted a TCB dad-shirt for a long time. I actually made a design over a year ago & had one printed just for him and it became one of his favorite shirts. I wasn’t completely happy with the design & kept messing with it until I finally perfected it. It’s now his favorite tee!

Daddin’ Ain’t Easy by Little Hooligans Co.
Logan likes the simple design of this t-shirt and the fit of the garment. It seems like every time he wears this he gets a funny comment from someone about it. Plus, it’s true, ya know…daddin’ really ain’t easy.

DAD by The Blue Envelope
This is actually one of my favorite “dad-tees” that Logan has. This is one of The Blue-Envelope’s signature descriptive word designs. Each letter is filled with words that describe a dad. This garment is really soft and fits Logan perfectly.

Livin’ The Dad Life by Hazzard Lane Clothing
First off, let me say that this was one of Logan’s favorite tees but he gained a little weight over the summer and it doesn’t seem to fit him as well as it used to haha! Logan likes this shirt’s design, color, & style. There aren’t a lot of v-neck options for dudes, so it’s nice to be able to switch it up a little bit from his regular, black, crew neck tees.

Trouble Maker by Root Avenue
Logan’s second favorite Root Avenue tee is the Trouble Maker tee. He wears this one at least once a week. It really is the perfect tee for him to wear, while Cash wears his matching “Trouble” tee. This design is on a few different garments. Logan’s favorites are this black one, and the charcoal grey one.

We love to shop small and support small businesses. Make sure to browse the websites all of the shop’s mentioned in this post. They all have some great items for moms & kids as well!



Photos with Sawyer

I rarely have my photo taken with my babies, and when I do, it seems like they all turn out terrible!
Today we planned to go out and get some photos taken of Logan in some small shop tees. I decided to do my hair, makeup, put on my favorite romper & make sure Logan took some photos of me also.
Cash isn’t the most cooperative when it comes to pictures. (Or most things!) So I only managed to get some of Sawyer & I. I love how they turned out. This is rare for me…ha!

My hat & romper are from Forever 21. This romper is my favorite because it has a little snap in the front which makes it incredibly easy to nurse!
My shoes are from Wet Seal

I love this babe. Sawyer is 10 months old, just started walking (she hasn’t perfected it yet), loves her mama so much, & will not let anyone hold her besides myself or Logan. This is such a fun, and exhausting age.

Our brand shoot featuring small shops will be up shortly.



Children’s Museum Of Phoenix

My family is always looking for fun indoor actives here in Arizona, since it’s usually too hot to do anything outdoors about 6 months out of the year. The Children’s Museum Of Phoenix is one of our favorite places to take the kids. It’s perfect for both Cash & Sawyer, which is hard to find! Sawyer is 9 months old and hasn’t started walking yet, so it’s difficult for us to find places that I’m able to set her down to play. They have assigned “Baby Areas” all through-out the museum, which makes it so easy to keep an eye on both kids. The building consists of 3 levels, each full of fun and educational activities. When you enter the museum you are greeted by the front desk associates, and behind them is the gift shop which is full of kid’s stuff, of course. After you pay, you walk into the first room which has their amazing jungle gym. This is NOT your typical jungle gym, it looks like a piece of art! And it’s pretty intense for parents to maneuver through (lots of crouching!). I attempted it once, and ended up turning around!
Some of Cash’s (age 2) favorites on the upper two levels are the foam noodles, which he likes to run through, and the drums. We love taking them in the baby room which is for ages 0-4 (Or 3, I can’t remember!). Cash likes the slide and pretend kitchen in there, while Sawyer likes the “kid-cave” as I like to call it, which has little pictures, & buttons for the kids to push.
I really like the dark room behind the foam noodles, it plays eerie music that reminds me of a Disney ride, and there’s books with cozy areas to sit and relax.
There’s also a little nursing room for mom’s which is always great, but of course you can nurse anywhere in the museum.
They also offer different classes, such as art, which is something we haven’t done yet since Cash is probably a little too young to enjoy it.
I definitely recommend the Children’s Museum Of Phoenix to anyone with kiddos between the ages of 0-10!
Make sure to check their calendar before you go, I try to avoid field trip days.
Also check Groupon to see if they have any deals!
Wear cozy shoes with socks, if you plan on going in the baby room you’ll have to take your shoes off.
There’s a kitchen on the second floor, with a pretty large variety of options. You can also bring your own food, you just have to eat it in the dining area.

Here’s a little video of our trip today. Enjoy!
