Tulle Skirt Round-up

December 5, 2017 No Comments

I’m what society  snarkily refers to as a #basicbitch. I love Christmas, I’m a sorority alumni, I have fake blonde hair, I enjoy Louis Vuittons paired with everything (including my Ugg boots when I feel like being cozy, which is often), I wear leggings as pants, Nordstrom is life, I sometimes hit curbs while driving my Chevy Tahoe mom-mobile, I like white subway tile, I listen to gangster rap when I’m driving without my kids in the car, you get the idea. So I’m sure it’s a big shocker that I LOVE any excuse to glam up in some…

Mitchell Family Holiday Photos 2017

November 1, 2017 No Comments

Photo shoots are HARD when you have a four year old and a nineteen month old. With Porter, we were dealing with smile refusals and attitude problems. With Preston, we were dealing with just general crazy behavior that mostly included running away when we put him somewhere to stand or sit or even heaven forbid we hold him and he isn’t diving head first to the ground. I tried bribing with food, but it was ineffective. Somehow our photographer managed to capture some moments that made it look like we have our *ish* together, so thanks for that Jacki…

10 Dollar Summer Dress

May 21, 2017 No Comments

I’m sure you all know by now that I love a good bargain, so when I saw this ten dollar dress at H&M I thought it was almost too good to be true. I had Preston with me, so I just took it home and hoped it would work and it did! The temperature has been pushing into the 90’s in Sacramento lately, so this was the PERFECT date night dress. I paired it with a blazer and wedges since I was out at night, but you could easily dress this down with some sandals sans jacket for the daytime. I…

Treat Yo-Self this Mother’s Day with JORD

May 11, 2017 No Comments

Giveaway Alert: see at the bottom of this post Mother’s Day is around the corner, as you’re all well aware. While I typically do not expect any sort of Mother’s Day gift aside from a card that talks about what a fantastic mother I am (Ok, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t also want a pretty bouquet), I was wanting to treat myself this year since being a mom of two has proven to be much more of a challenge than I anticipated – so much so, Ryan and I have both agreed that we are waiting…

All you need is Love and a JORD Wood Watch

January 19, 2017 No Comments

Valentine’s Day has always seemed a little silly to me. I never understood why society needed a designated day to celebrate love. After all, Ryan and I celebrated each other all the time with dates, sweet notes, random flowers, and just laughing and enjoying life together. It sounds like it was all sunshine and roses because for the most part, it was. We very rarely had any sort of an argument and we did everything together! We wrote love notes; he brought me random bouquets of flowers; we had date nights every single night, even if that just meant…

6 Red Lipsticks to Rock this Holiday Season

December 8, 2016 No Comments

Guest post by my dear friend and talented make-up artist, Gina Marie Wheeler. You can read about her background in Voyage LA Magazine. *** Nothing says holiday makeup like a red lip moment. Everyone looks good with a red lip, which is why new and seasonal collections always include the timeless hue. There are a few common reasons why some people avoid the bold color and I’ve found that most of the time it’s just intimidation. I’m here to tell you, it’s all in your head. You can and should rock a red (especially during the holidays). MAC Cosmetics is my go-to brand…

Black Friday Picks from Nordstrom and Anthropologie

November 25, 2016 No Comments

              Black Friday gives me major anxiety because there are so many deals out there that I have trouble making decisions. It’s like too much pressure. SO. MANY. STORES. I decided to keep things simple by only checking out the two stores that I shop at the most, Nordstrom and Anthropologie. My picks are below…hurry up and check out the sales before everything’s gone! I’ve already had stuff in my shopping bag sell out before I could buy! Nordstrom Tory Burch Mini Robinson Convertible Leather Shoulder Bag Was: $275.00 Now: $192.50 TopShop Moto Leigh Ripped…

Fall Fashion Must Haves

November 18, 2016 No Comments

Top Picks from NYC Stylist Phoebe Elizabeth   I’m definitely late on the blogger train to do a fall fashion write up, but it literally JUST got cold here in the Sacramento area so I’m just now finally thinking about dressing warmer. I’m also not one to flaunt my fashion sense and I do NOT consider myself a “fashion blogger.” The thought of taking daily selfies in my mom getups makes me laugh hysterically. My body has changed since having kids and I’m definitely guilty of wearing leggings too often. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t like to feel…

Dressing for Pregnancy and Beyond

April 5, 2016 No Comments

When I was pregnant with my first, I had this weird ambition to not buy any “maternity” clothing. Most of what I saw in the stores were expensive, not THAT cute and I didn’t like the idea of filling my closet with clothes that had an expiration date. I spent the latter half of my pregnancy in maxi skirts and stretchy tank tops (summer pregnancy obvi). This time around, I went about things a little differently. I recently gave birth to my second sweet boy on March 9, so I spent the majority of my larger days of pregnancy in…

  • Had the best Sunday celebrating the birthday twins 👯 🎂 Today @ktrec and tomorrow, @laurenerickson1027. I’m sure glad these two babes were born 34 years ago...these girls are my sunshine on a cloudy day ❤️ ⛅️ swipe for some major throwbacks ➡️
  • Fridays are for flashbacks, so here I am 26 years young after I had just said my vows to the love of my life @ryancurtismitchell. My bouquet was so heavy, my forearms were sore for days afterwards 💐🏋🏻‍♀️😂
  • “The days are long but the years are short”
💫
Today I’ve been reflecting a little bit on time as we approach the year 2019; just one year shy of the year 2020, which kind of boggles my mind when I sit and really think about it. 💫
How has it really been that long? I had Porter in 2013 when I was 28 years old and in so many ways it feels like yesterday. How am I in my mid thirties already? How was college graduation literally 11.5 years ago? How is it that Ryan and I have been together for 10 years and married for 6? 💫
My 92 year old grandmother often tells me she doesn’t feel 92 and I’m really starting to understand. I guess all we can do in this life is appreciate every moment because in a blink of an eye, we will wonder how that said moment was so long ago. 💫
This also makes me think about how life is too short to spend time with negative people or drink bad wine. And also I need to get some Botox. 😂🍷💉
  • I graduated from high school in 2003, so I vividly remember the days of film/photo albums. As digital cameras and social media took over, printing photos became kind of a rare thing for me to do. I’ve had so many scares where I think digital photos have been lost forever and I personally know people who have tragically lost precious baby/wedding photos 😭. So when I got the opportunity to partner up with @google using Google Photos, I was intrigued! On my phone and within literally FIVE minutes, I was able to create this album of our trip to Maui from over the summer. It was the easiest thing ever using the Google Photos app, cost about $20, and they have free standard shipping until 12/12! This album has already been a coffee table conversation piece and my kids have been fondly reminiscing our trip 😍. My new normal is definitely to have Google Photo albums! These are also awesome Christmas gifts 🎁🤩#googlephotos #photobooks #googlepartner
  • Christmas magic through their eyes ✨🎄🎅🏻
  • Yesterday we had our first parent-teacher conference for TK and it turned out to be much more thorough than I would have imagined. It was so amazing to hear feedback from his teacher about this boy we’ve been trying to mold & raise for the past 5 years. So many things said about him that made me just beam with pride, but the most profound praise was that he exhibits an unusual sense of empathy and compassion for others. If there was any one trait in this world I could hope for my kids to have, it would be that❤️ #portercurtis
  • Porter: I wish it was Saturday.
.
Me: Why?
.
Porter: So I can be here and do hugs with you all day.
.
Porter said this to me as I was hugging him. He went from driving me crazy (arguing with basically everything I say all day, urrrday) to making me cry with his sweet words. Hello emotional roller coaster 🤪😭😍❤️
  • When you rush into your toddler’s room because of the silence and find this 🤷🏻‍♀️. I don’t even know who you are anymore Presto 😂 #prestonhenry #thisistwo
  • Thankful for these goofs today and everyday 💙💙 #porterandprestonm #builtinbestfriend @dianaelenaphotos
