Holiday Gift Guide for the Exhausted Mom

November 30, 2016 No Comments

I’m in the trenches of sleep deprivation, so this gift guide is a reflection of my life haha. Husbands, if your wife is tired (which let’s face it all moms are tired) this list will help her feel a little more rested, rejuvinated and appreciated! Everyone knows the saying “happy wife, happy life,” so this list is my Christmas gift to you… Staycation (tell her to go for one night with her girl friends) I recently did this and we stayed at the Westin…

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…

Rustic Thanksgiving Tablescape

November 23, 2016 No Comments

  In true Bethany fashion, I procrastinated and just curated my Thanksgiving tablescape yesterday. I literally just threw it together with some help from various pins. If you’re cool like me and waited until the last minute, my tablescape is totally something you can steal ideas from. I didn’t have time to fuss too much over this because I’m more focused on getting Thanksgiving dinner all prepped and ready. You can view my menu if you’re curious. So. Many. Sides. But for me, Thanksgiving is all…

Our Thanksgiving Menu

November 22, 2016 No Comments

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is enjoying family recipes that have been passed on by generations. This is the first year I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving completely on my own. However, I have a helpful husband who’s agreed to be on turkey duty, which takes a major load off my plate. He’s pretty brilliant with all types of meat, so I’m confident it’ll be a turkey to remember. I also took a shortcut by picking up a frozen apple pie last…

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…

Potato and Leek Soup

November 7, 2016 No Comments

Soup is a major staple in the Mitchell house, mostly because when Porter was about one and a half we discovered that he LOVES soup so it provided some dinner table harmony where we aren’t constantly on Porter’s case to eat his damn dinner. We eat soup literally all year long – I’ve even been known to make soup when it’s 105 degrees out. Now that we’ve reached November (when normal people start making soup) I thought I’d share a family recipe…

Healthier Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

September 20, 2016 No Comments

When I was growing up, pancakes meant getting out a giant yellow box of Bisquick. For my kids, I try to make things a tad healthier (no offense to moms who use Bisquick). I know there are a million variations of a “protein pancake” online. I’ve played around with different recipes and I feel like I’ve got one good enough to share, but I will probably continue to alter it because I just can’t help myself. I’ve made some leaner ones in the past,…

The Best Broccoli Chicken Mac&Cheese

August 23, 2016 No Comments

This is literally the best Mac&Cheese recipe I’ve ever made. Discovered on one of my fave food blogs, Gimme Some Oven, this recipe will make you want to toss out all those nasty boxes of cheese powder and never look back.  It isn’t exactly “healthy,” but the ingredients are real and it’s not loaded with butter like so many are. Plus it includes the protein and veggie, which makes my mom life easier. After posting the mouth watering picture above to my instagram, I got a…

A message for the non-moms

August 15, 2016 No Comments

As much as I hate admitting it, I’m often consumed with thoughts about how friggin’ hard motherhood is. If you accompany me on one of my rare kid free nights out, I’m likely telling you about how I haven’t felt rested in three years and how much I miss going out to dinner or leaving town with my husband at a moment’s notice and how I’m so sick of wiping asses and can we please have a sick free home for just…

  • 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 ❤️

@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 ➡️😂
