Keeping My Kitchen Safe & Clean

This post is sponsored by Faultless Brands but all opinions are true and personal.

It is that time of year again already. You know what I am talking about. The holiday season where our homes become a revolving door of family, friends, and little ones. Isn’t it the best? If you are like me, you stress about keeping your home clean! My kitchen is where most of my entertaining happens, so it is important to me to keep that space clean. Along with that, with having littles, I love that the Bon Ami Powder Cleanser doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals!

Basement Kitchen Renovation

After 6-ish LONG months, our basement project is finished! My sister and BIL are going to be living with us for the next 4 years, so we had big plans for our unfinished basement for them.

We decided on a full function kitchen for them, and so when we sell down the road we can claim a true second kitchen/”MIL quarters”. We also decided on one bedroom with a big closet, and full bathroom, and a large living room.

I am excited to share the kitchen with you today! It was definitely a labor of love and it was exciting to see it finally get all put together. I had a specific idea of the finishes that I wanted, and I have to say it turned out perfectly!

Fun Times at Great Wolf Lodge

If you follow me on Instagram, which you should (https://www.instagram.com/robyn/), you’ll remember that last month me and Troy took Saylor to Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs. #ad – We have been wanting to take her on her own special trip, so we made it a little birthday weekend, since she was turning 6 shortly after!

I have been wanting to go to Great Wolf Lodge as long as I can remember. I have seen friends go, and the indoor water park is what convinced me I had to go. I didn’t realize until I started researching for myself that they have locations EVERYWHERE! If you live in the continental US, there is one within driving distance of pretty much anywhere! We chose to go to the Colorado Springs location, and we were very excited!

Front Room Update with Lorena Canals

We have a random room right when you walk into our house that I have never been sure what to do with. For 3 years, it has just been a catch all, eye sore type of room. We kept the girls toys in there, but I was sick of having them out everywhere, so I decided it was time for a change! I have Lorena Canals rugs in both Saylor and Remi’s room, and I am obsessed with them. They are not just darling rugs, but I LOVE that they can be thrown in the washing machine. They have held up so well over the few years that I have had them, so I love that too!

Winter in Moab at Homewood Suites by Hilton Moab

Guys…I fell in love with Moab! I had never been and we took a trip there last week and are already planning to go back ASAP. It is only about 3 hours away from us, so we are super lucky. We chose to stay at Homewood Suited by Hilton Moab and it was the PERFECT for us. The best location, best view, best room…I can’t say enough good things! Here are some photos of and at the hotel…

Another great thing they have available in Moab is called Winter in Moab. It is a program to keep people coming during the lower season (winter months), and gives you discounts on really awesome things to do. The companies they partner with range from ATV’s, many restaurants, different events, even a massage company! It is a great resource for consumers, and also helps the local community. We went and did the Delicate Arch hike during our stay, and it was about 50 degrees and so beautiful! There are so many incredible places to see and things to do in Moab, and I would not let any season deter you from visiting!

My Place Hotel St. George

I am so excited to tell you about a fun trip we took last month…as a family! It was so much fun to be able to head south to some *slightly* warmer weather and spend time together as a family. I love St. George, we have gone there a few times and always want to go back! It is only about a 4 hour drive from us, so it really is the perfect getaway spot for us. 

This trip we decided to stay at the My Place Hotel, St. George location. We loved the room sizes, the pool (which is heated!), and the location of it. They have an affordable breakfast option that gets delivered to your room, which was a big deciding factor as well! The girls loved the pool so much, it has a cute little palm tree fountain and some other water things that they really enjoyed. It has a great, large outdoor area that is perfect for just hanging out or having dinner.

#holidayyourway with Evereve!

Can you believe the holidays are here and ready to party already?! I sure can’t. Each year that has passed, I remembered feeling so stressed out about not having anything to wear, not wanting to be so fancy and uncomfortable, but not looking like a complete slob. I’m sure you can all relate. I have been following Evereve on Instagram for some time, and was excited when I realized they have not only one, but TWO stores in Utah! So last week I left my kids at home, and set out to find some clothes for ME. I can’t tell you the last time I took some time to actually try things on and interact with the employees of a store. It was the absolute best.

            

When I arrived at the store, I was greeted by their cute employees and told them my sizes and asked them to help me and pull whatever they think I would like/look good on my body type. We were able to work together and it was so fun! I learned that their store is completely mom and kid friendly. It was started by a fellow mom who just wanted a better shopping experience. All the employees are trained in body types, so they know what would look good on all our different shapes and sizes. The stores have a kid area and are designed for a double stroller to fit throughout the entire store. I honestly can’t say enough good things about them!

            

Ok back to the pieces I chose! Which are CUTE. The fuzzy camo bomber like jacket immediately caught my eye, and I knew I had to have it. I love a comfy, slightly oversized graphic tee and a great pair of high waisted jeans, and was able to find both! I also loved that this gorgeous wine colored sweater is slightly distress looking and has a hood. They honestly have so many great pieces at so many price points! I had such an amazing shopping experience, I know I will be shopping there from now on. Let me know what pieces you grab and what is on you wish list! Happy shopping…

Staycation at the Little America Hotel

Hi! Long time no talk…oops! I wanted to share a fun staycation we recently had at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. It was the perfect getaway, very family friendly, and such a beautiful hotel. We wanted to get away with the girls, somewhere close, and somewhere that would be comfortable for us as a family. I saw that the Little America Hotel had this Getaway Package, and knew that it would be perfect for us!

         

Our room had two queen beds, and was on the 17th floor. Look at that view from our balcony!

         

The main level/lobby area of the hotel is beautiful. It has a historic feel, and there are so many rich, warm colors. Saylor particularly loved the oversized chandelier and fire.

           

We were welcome with a nice fruit platter and a fun gift bag! Saylor loved that small gesture and felt very special that she had some “gifts” waiting in our room for her. We especially loved the brunch buffet at the Lucky H Bar & Grille, and had a yummy dinner from the Coffee Shop that was equally as delicious. Don’t mind Saylor’s crazy wig, it is Halloween season, after all.

     

        

Remi is teething so she wasn’t much fun, to be honest haha! She spent most of her time in the hotel room (which thankfully was plenty big), and running the halls to try and burn off energy. Saylor loved the grand staircase and touches of Halloween (see floral arrangement), and the big bathtub! The Little America Hotel was the perfect staycation for my little family, and I see us returning in the future! If you are traveling to Utah, definitely give them a stay.

         

I had a fun little photoshoot outside one morning. Even the grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very well maintained. Also never getting over this view! I am already looking forward to our next staycation there 🙂

IncrediBundles is a site full of the best baby gifts. They create extraordinary bundles, ranging from book bundles, sleep bundles, and even diaper and wipe subscriptions!

        

I was gifted an Announcement Package, which includes the cutest stuffed animal that Remi is obsessed with, and a diaper and wipe subscription! Here is a little about the subscription and how it works.

IncrediBundles.com Diaper Subscriptions…

The Foolproof Baby Gift!

IncrediBundles.com has made giving the perfect baby gift as easy as 1,2,3!

Step 1: YOU Select a Subscription Length
Choose to give a 3, 6, 9 or 12-month diaper subscription!

Step 2: WE Send an Announcement Package
Upon your purchase, we send an adorable package announcing your gift!

Each IncrediBundles.com Diaper Subscription comes with a beautiful announcement package featuring a premium plush teddy bear that holds a certificate announcing your gift. This certificate includes your recipient’s unique code which they will use to redeem their diapers. We can send this announcement package directly to your recipient or to you to present at an event.

Step 3: YOUR RECIPIENT Redeems Their Diapers

What makes an IncrediBundles.com Diaper Subscription the PERFECT gift? Your recipient gets to choose the brand and size of diapers they would like each time they redeem an installment. They can choose from all of the varieties of Pampers, Huggies, Luvs and Member’s Mark Diapers. The diapers are delivered straight to their door!

IncrediBundles.com Diaper Subscriptions are a hit at baby showers across the country! They are also the choice of hundreds of companies who use IncrediBundles.com Diaper Subscriptions as the ultimate perk for their employees who embark on the journey of parenthood.

         

-As mentioned above, activating your subscription is so very easy. It takes maybe 3 minutes total…they really do make it seamless. Especially as a busy mom, or someone who gets the gift for their baby shower, we just don’t have a lot of time to figure things out, haha. So that makes this the perfect gift. Diapers and wipes are ALWAYS a welcomed, and needed, baby shower gift. You can never go wrong!

Gifting a new or expectant mom a diaper or wipe subscription would be the best possible thing you could do for them! I know I would love to receive any of the IncrediBundles. Be sure to keep them in mind the next time you need to purchase a gift, and also head to my Instagram for a chance to win a 3 month diaper subscription!

Summertime with Swimzip

Summer is in full swing around here and that means I’m worried about sun protection. Skin cancer hits close to home in our family, so that has made me more aware of how I protect my family against the sun. I have learned the hard way, that just because you don’t “think” the sun is out enough, or you aren’t getting burnt…BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY! Enter: SwimZip.

     

I love all things matching, especially when I can participate! I love that the girls’ tops have zippers and can be taken off and put back on so easily. This palm print is the cutest ever, too. You can shop the women’s collection HERE and the girl’s collection HERE.

       

Like I mentioned, they have anything for the family. Rash guards, hats, suits, even sunglasses and towels. I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram for the next few days, for a $50 credit, you can enter HERE.

Please, let’s protect our skin and especially our little’s! Make sure you check out all that SwimZip offers.
