Isabella's Luau Birthday Party

I honestly can not believe that I am already writing a post about Isabella's second Birthday.  It is unreal how fast the time has gone.  Isabella has been such a blessing in our lives and I am wondering how on earth I ever lived without her!
She is such a sweet girl, for all of those that know her personally you know how kind she is, and that she is also sassy and super hilarious! 
She is really smart! Already talking in sentences, counting, and knows some colors! We are proud of her can you tell :)
I love planning huge events and going maybe just a tad over board… But I am a huge believer that birthdays are a BIG deal :) We celebrate Birthday weeks and maybe months over here… 
I asked Isabella what she wanted for her Birthday a couple months ago and she said, Car… Jump… Red… and Candy..
So I got looking into bounce houses and decided that a Luau would be perfect with the Palm Tree bounce house and just ran with the idea!
 
I wanted to have the Luau outside with lit tiki torches all around but we had a super windy day and had to move the table and food inside, which ended up working out fine!
The Party ended up being a blast, babies and adults had a blast with the bounce house!
The next day was Isabella's actual Birthday so we had Princess Pancakes for breakfast, went to a water park, and finished the day out with dinner and bowling! I would say birthday #2 was a HUGE success!

Boho and Bows


I am excited to post about this beautiful Nena & Co. bag today!
If you haven't already heard of them, they are company that takes the beautiful dresses and skirts from the women in Guatemala and makes them into an amazing one of a kind masterpiece for you!
How incrediable is that? Not to mention your purchase also goes to giving back to these amazing Mayan families and cultures. 
I always feel when styling this bag that I can go super simple because the bag just has so much beautiful detail.
Isabella is wearing this adorable new fall floral printed bow by To The Moon Kids. I am a Floral LOVER and to come across a fabulous neutral one and one that looks amazing for fall makes me super giddy :)
We are starting to transition our summer fashion into a bit of fall as well with some layers and such… But.. Don't forget we are in Utah so who knows, we could be in a swimsuit tomorrow!! :)

Bear Lake


So it has been a few weeks since we went to Bear Lake and I am finally getting around to putting up this fun post!  I have been consumed with flamingos, pineapples and grass skirts for Isabella's 2nd Birthday party therefore the blog had to be put on a tiny hold! (Post on the Luau later!)
Back to Bear Lake though.. We had a blast! It is rare that the 3 of us get to go on a little family vaca all alone! It was so great just to have all of our focus on Isabella and get in one on one time with her!
It was a spur of the moment trip and sometimes those are the best! 
We ate our fair share of strawberry shakes, and cheese fries, played frisbee, tubed, and just bummed on the beach! All in all it was just what we wanted and want to make it a tradition for our little fam!
I snagged this adorable Pineapple tank from Style Lately and even though we weren't at the ocean this beach was pretty darn close and I felt even more tropical sporting this! 
They say that Bear Lake is the Caribbean of the Rockies and I would have to agree!

DIY Beach Water

I have been using my DIY Beach water all summer and decided I should definitely share the recipe with all of you!
I have a natural wave to my hair and can get a good beach wave going on most days by just letting it air dry. But some days it will dry more straight then others, or if slept on it could use a little boost the following day! This mist refreshes and moisturizes the hair while giving it more of a wave as well.
I do not like my hair to have the gelled or mousse look to it. I like the waves to be soft and relaxed and literally like they are from the salty ocean breeze!

Casual Comfort


Today's post is just a good casual look for the both of us! It has been a stormy week and I always love pairing booties with shorts when I get the chance.
And on top of that when I find a good baseball tee I am practically in heaven!
Isabella is looking so adorable in this fun little sun suit! I love any outfit that shows those precious little baby legs! Who doesn't love some baby rolls?!
And this headband by Hello Little Valentine is to die for!! I love the combo of the felt flowers and the Metallic Leather leaves! A definite must have for your littles!
