Mitchell Family Holiday Photos 2017

November 1, 2017 5 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…

How MomFriends Make or Break your #Momlife

August 18, 2017 18 Comments

Momfriend: A friend you make with the common bond of both being moms The term “momfriend” didn’t enter my vocabulary until I had my first baby. Before that, I just had “friends” or “girlfriends.” Fast forward four years and my “momfriends” are just my friends, because the only friends I have left are moms (with the exception of a few). “A good momfriend is a lifeline when you’re drowning in a sea of crying babies, unfolded laundry and cranky husbands.” It wasn’t…

A little House of Mitchells update

August 2, 2017 1 Comment

We are officially Arden Park residents! After selling our Roseville house and then living with Ryan’s mom for 2.5 weeks, we pulled the trigger and moved into our fixer upper home in our dream neighborhood about three weeks ago — I seriously cannot even believe it’s already been that long. We had originally planned on doing major renovations prior to move-in, but plans changed for various reasons: Living with Ryan’s mom proved to be less comfortable than we had originally envisioned; if…

SOLD: My Feelings on Selling Our First House

June 12, 2017 No Comments

If you follow my Instagram stories, I’m sure you’re aware that we sold our home and are getting ready to move. I have mixed feelings about this, but I’m surprised at how numb I’m becoming as the move out date gets closer. Is it an emotional defense mechanism? Will it finally hit me as we drive away for the last time? After all, this is where I brought my babies home from the hospital; it’s where they both took their first steps;…

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…

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…

Girl Boss Feature: Home Décor Signs by Sarah Phulps

April 4, 2017 No Comments

Sarah Phulps, aka @shes.scripty (go follow her!) makes and sells the CUTEST décor signs for your home and recently ventured into drinkware. With a million little shops out there, I felt it was my moral obligation to share her with you all because there’s something special about her lettering that sets her apart from the rest. I’m not even kidding when I say that looking at her handwriting puts me in a good mood. Is that weird? Her lettering is like art so I…

Super Cute Shirt Under 15 Dollars

March 27, 2017 No Comments

I stumbled upon the cutest shirt yesterday while shopping at H&M and I just had to share.  It’s so convenient being able to go to ONE STORE and buy stuff for my boys and for me. Plus, everything is so reasonably priced! I’ve been known to find a top and buy it in every color, so I stayed true to form and did that yesterday with this shirt (I only bought three though). I’m rarely able to shop for myself sans kids and I rarely…

How I got my Baby to Take Naps

March 24, 2017 No Comments

I cannot believe I went through one full kid without knowing about these magical inserts that make babies sleep. I’m legitimately amazed at how it has transformed my afternoons. A couple of weeks ago, Preston would NOT take two naps and honestly, I was lucky to even get one (besides the lame 30 minute cat or car naps all moms just love). Fast-forward to today and he’s a napping pro and it really did change as soon as this bad boy arrived;…

Hey Diddle Diddle 1st Birthday

March 20, 2017 No Comments

First birthdays have always been a big deal, but millennial moms have taken it to a whole new level if you ask our Baby Boomer parents. What can I say? That’s just how we roll… Preston’s first birthday was definitely not as detail oriented as his big brother’s was because it’s just harder to plan parties with two kids in tow (second child syndrome) and also, Preston had Croup just one week earlier so we were a little distracted. Still, I wanted Preston to have a special…

  • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety
  • Happy birthday to my sweet 3 year old Preston Henry. You have always and will always have your mama’s heart ❤️
  • Weekend highlight: celebrating sweet baby Erickson due so soon! 🥰 Can’t wait to love on him or her! Can you believe @laurenerickson1027 is waiting to find out the gender? Love her, but she be CRAY 😂

@edwardsfamily4 curated the most gorgeous baby shower, no surprise there 💖✨ #babyshower #babynumber3 #boyorgirl
  • Belated Valentine’s celebration with this guy 😍. Staycation perks: staying out late with zero accountability followed by sleeping in. Also, having uninterrupted conversations; that’s always nice too 🤪 #boglevineyards #sheratongrandsacramento #forevervalentine
  • There’s nothing I love more than watching these two love on each other 🥰❤️. What is everyone up to for Valentines Day? Personally I hate going out the day-of, so Ryan planned a little night away this weekend and he made dinner reservations and I DON’T KNOW WHERE. And I didn’t wife-cromanage this; he made these plans all on his own 😂🙌🏻 #valentinesday2019
  • In case anyone was wondering, I’m still obsessed with having a sun room, and @boglevineyards wines. #rainydaydontcare #californiamom #needtobeoutside #sacramentoblogger
  • I truly do cherish our Costco lunch dates, even though it was freezing cold today. My baby is almost 3 and it’s kind of making me sad. Time really does speed up the older you get, especially after you have kids 😢. #cherrishthemoment #prestonhenry #secondborn
  • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
  • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
