Super Easy and TASTY Stuffed Bell Peppers

June 3, 2016 No Comments

June is here and it’s a disgusting 99 degrees today in Roseville, so in my book it’s bell pepper season. I love a good recipe using ingredients I already have AND is quick, yet still delicious! We buy grass fed ground beef from Costco, so I pretty much always have one frozen on hand. Plus the veggies included in this are kind of my weekly grocery shopping staples. And I always have fresh mozzarella in my frig because I’m a caprese addict….

10 Tips to Avoid the “Baby Blues”

May 9, 2016 No Comments

In my eighth week of being a mom to two boys, I’ve been reflecting on how much smoother this postpartum period has gone in comparison to my first. I was truly traumatized after giving birth to Porter (you can read more on my first birth experience if you’re curious). My OB literally thinks I was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. During the immediate months after I gave birth, I would wake up in complete hysterics. I had sudden flashbacks of lying…

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…

Preston's Nursery

March 8, 2016 No Comments

I was deprived of the pleasure of decorating Porter’s nursery since we moved into our house less than two months before he was born and were undergoing multiple larger scale house projects at the time (first world problems, I know). It felt like torture with him being my first baby. I wanted so badly for him to have the perfect room, but I just didn’t have the physical energy to pull it off AND unpack our house. Once I adjust to being a mom of…

The Valentine’s Day Spectrum

February 10, 2016 No Comments

Valentine’s Day is this coming Sunday and I’ve been thinking about how different this holiday is for so many couples. There’s definitely a spectrum when it comes to celebrating this “Hallmark Holiday.” For some, this holiday means THE WORKS; a night out at a crowded restaurant with a fixed “Valentine’s Day” menu (which happens to be marked up three times what it normally would cost). Date goers are likely wearing some sort of red/pink ensemble. There’s probably some sort of jewelry gift…

#SecondPregnancyProblems

January 27, 2016 No Comments

“Every pregnancy is different” – a common phrase thrown around by experienced mamas who know how things work. In theory, I knew this to be true. But in reality, I find myself constantly comparing this pregnancy to my first. I actually thought this pregnancy would be easier because I had done it before…I was wrong. In hindsight, my first pregnancy was actually a breeze. My first trimester nausea was mild and I didn’t start having back pain until my third trimester. Really,…

Prepping for the second kid

December 30, 2015 No Comments

  “One is none, two is ten.” My mom always used to say that and frankly, this terrifies me. In ten short weeks, I’ll be a mom of two and I’m not quite sure how the hell I’m going to pull this off. I know it’s possible – I see people do it. One of my best friends just had her third! I know it’s not a big deal to society to have two kids. But in our house, I feel like…

Kitchen Remodel Update

December 9, 2015 No Comments

Our holiday season started out in an ideal way; the day after Thanksgiving, we made the trek up to Apple Hill’s Smart’s Tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree. We got apple donuts and met up with family – Porter had a blast. That was our first real break from working on our house in weeks. Back to reality on Saturday morning as we pawned Porter off to Nana and continued to frantically try and finish the kitchen remodel before the…

Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Casserole (my secret family recipe)

November 23, 2015 No Comments

Five years ago, I was a writer for Sacmidtown.com. All my content can still be viewed there, but I decided to pull from it to share my fabulous secret family Thanksgiving recipe with you all. You can view the original post here, or see below (I tweaked it slightly as my writing style has changed). I’ll be making this on Thursday FOR SURE and so should you! In my family, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t necessarily all about the turkey.  I mean sure, I like turkey….

  • 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

  • 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 ➡️😂
