How cute are these mom jeans?! So cute right?! I also just saw that they now come in a light blue color here. I am wearing a size 4 short and they fit great! I am wearing a size medium in the top but I would recommend sizing down in this top as it is already has an oversized fit. I am probably going to grab a size small too!
I shared this designer dupe bag on my Instagram last week. The quality is so great you guys and it came with 2 scarves. All under $40!
Did you all have an amazing weekend! I sure hope so! We got to hang with our church fam and also celebrate one of my dear friends at her birthday party! Since she is a mama too a ton of her mom friends were there with their kids and it got me thinking…
You know that saying “real friends will accept you for who you are”? Well now that I’m older and a mom the saying should really be “real friends accept you no matter who you kids are.” LOL am I right?! As adults we are in complete control of our emotions and reactions. As a tired and hungry toddler? Not so much! 🙂
I’m going to be honest, these past couple of days have been rough. Baby Weaver is a very opinionated little one and is not afraid to tell you when he doesn’t want something or want to do something. He’s actually always been like that but lately he’s been communicating in tantrums. It’s super fun. 🙂 I know it’s just a phase but one day I was running into the grocery store with him and he had a major meltdown because I couldn’t find the car grocery cart. You know the one that looks like a race car with a steering wheel? The one that apparently ruins a child’s life if you can’t find it? LOL. Yeah, that one. 🙂 Well, it took him a good 2 aisles to calm down but during those 2 aisles I was receiving some major judgey eyes from some people. I’m guessing they were not parents.
This weekend, at my girlfriend’s house, baby Weaver started crying because he wanted something like to be both inside and outside of the trampoline at the same time LOL. Literally I have no idea why he was having a moment but my friend Marget walked up and was like “omg, him and Sofia are just alike” and literally that just made me feel a million times better! I know my child is not the only one that is going through this phase but sometimes it feels like it! It’s so nice to be surrounded by mama friends!
At about 7:30pm all kids of all ages were beginning to have the tired meltdowns and to be honest, that made me feel really good too LOL. Ahhh, it’s not just us. And if you needed to hear this today, it’s not just you. It’s okay that your sweet baby boy (or girl) goes sour sometimes. Well, it’s not really okay but it’s normal LOL. Surround yourself with a mom tribe who gets it! That’s what helps me at least!
So excited to be sharing not one, but two looks today that are both so cute and both under $60!
Thank you Walmart and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post!
So happy to be continuing this partnership with Walmart to help promote their#WeDressAmerica campaign. This campaign is really about celebrating fashion for every person, body type and price point. It emphasizes on the fact that no matter where each of us are from or what our sense of style is, Walmart has something for each one of us. Shop the latest women’s trends here.
Oh what do you know? There’s that straw bag again! 🙂 Liked it so much I had to get it in two colors! I love the pop of coral with the navy shorts. These shorts run a little big so I would recommend sizing down one size. These tie waist shorts come in 6 colors and at the price of $13.92 I may need them all!
These tan wedges are going to be on major repeat this summer I already know it! They are really comfortable and seriously go with everything! They run true to size and I am wearing my normal size 7.
This peasant dress is so comfortable, so on trend, it comes in 5 other colors and oh did I mention it’s $16.94! I had to do a double take at that price tag. I am wearing a size small. You can wear the dress as it comes or you can snag this braided belt and style it just as I did.
Hopefully you aren’t tired of this black straw hat and tote that I have been wearing like crazy because I have plans to wear them both a lot more. 🙂 These ruffle sandals are already sold out but I was able to find similar ones on the Walmart website for around the same $15 price point that I paid for mine. You can find the similar sandals here. If you really love these ruffle ones I would try visiting your nearest store to see if they have them. I went into my Walmart last week and saw them in store!
I hope you guys are loving the Walmart finds as much as I do! As always, let me know if you have any questions about the products or sizing!
Hey babes! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! The family and I enjoyed a little family staycation just outside of Houston at The Woodlands Resort. We seriously had the best time and I am feeling refreshed and ready to take on another busy week!
Although my family and I had an amazing weekend I still had a little #fomo because some of my friends were at Coachella and the Revolve Festival lol. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was planning on going with my girlfriends Dawn and Sarah but well #work. However, when I did think I was going to be able to make it I immediately made my festival outfit purchases! So bummed I didn’t actually get to go but I sure did have fun getting to wear my outfits anyway! Today I am sharing 3 festival inspired looks with you and most of these items are on sale today!

I cannot believe our baby boy is already 2 years old! Like HOW?! Sometimes I wish time would just slow down for a bit because I am seriously loving this age SO much.
Our hearts are so full after being able to celebrate another birthday with our sweet friends and family but this year was extra special because baby Weaver’s Papa & Lola (my Mom and Dad) were in town for his actual birthday and his birthday party. My Dad being the amazing cook he is, made 90% of the food and my Mom was up late with me the night before the birthday party setting up all the decorations. Having them in town from California along with our closest friends and family is what really made this birthday so special. I am so grateful.
Seriously Dad of the year coming out in this outfit!! He did that all on his own you guys! He honestly wasn’t even into my theme at first but clearly it rubbed off on him! 🙂
This year we decided to do a carnival theme and I when I say we, I mean me 🙂 but I am so glad we did 🙂 It was actually super easy to find the carnival decorations and my friends at Sky High Party Rentals really helped bring the party together with the perfect carousel bounce house and backyard carnival games!
Bounce House, Carnival Games & Balloon Artist
So many of our friends asked if I based the theme of the party around the carousel bounce house and the answer is no! Haha! But I am thankful that Sky High Party Rentals has the most amazing, unique bounce houses that really helped take our carnival party theme to the next level! Last year, we did a Candy Shop party theme and Sky High Rentals ended up having a candy land bounce house! I mean how perfect! You can check that post out here.
This year I had my mind set on the carnival theme but I figured any color bounce house would go with my theme and when I started searching the Sky High Party Rentals website I saw the carousel one and almost fell out of my chair, it was so perfect! Not only do they do bounce houses but we also were able to rent the carnival games, balloon artist, table and chairs through them too! It is a one stop shop for all you busy party planning mama’s out there! They also rent out popcorn, snow cone and cotton candy machines which also would have been perfect with our carnival theme but I told Brandon I didn’t want to go overboard. After boxes and boxes of decor he asked “your definition of overboard is 5 times beyond a normal person’s overboard, just saying”.. LOL I guess I can’t disagree..but anyway I cannot say enough good things about Sky High Rentals. They have such a great variety of party rentals and they also have really great service which is the most important. We have used them for 2 years now and they always deliver earlier than planned which is awesome because I hate setting up last minute and feeling frazzled as guests arrive.
To me, food is basically the most important thing about a gathering aside from the birthday celebrant! I’m so happy the chef of the family, my Dad, wanted to cook everything for the party! We had all of our favorite Filipino dishes; fried rice, chicken pancit, lumpia and my personal fave chicken tocino. We also had chips, Chic-fil-A nuggets and cheese and crackers. After the party my Dad told me he ended up frying 500 lumpia’s and there were only like 7 left so needless to say I think that was a crowd favorite!
Well, let’s just say we had a sweet treat about everywhere you turned. Our mama friends were thanking me all week for the candy that their kids left with LOL. I also bought sprinkle covered donut holes from the grocery store and plain cupcakes and topped them off with animal crackers. Getting them store bought and adding the animal crackers for the custom touch was such a great, less expensive option to stay on theme with the cupcakes. You could also get inexpensive carnival themes cupcake toppers like these.
I know technically this should fall under the dessert section of the blog post but this beauty of a cake deserves a section of its own. Ummm….HELLO how cute is it?! Gali’s Goodies is local to Pasadena residents and pastry chefs are Cindy’s aunt and cousin . I sent over my Pinterest inspiration and her aunt killed it! I mean look at that marshmellow popcorn detail! But wait, the inside of the cake ya’ll! NEAPOLITAN! What?! It was as delicious as it was cute! I would highly recommend her. I know i will be ordering from her again. Like I’m really trying to find any reason to get another cake made, haha! She’s also reasonably priced! Check out her Facebook page here and their Instagram page here.
Thank you all for letting me share our sweet boy’s special day with you. And a trillion thank you’s to our sweet friends and family who came to celebrate our sweet 2 year old!!
I know a few of you were wanting to do a carnival theme party too and had some questions about where we got everything so I hope I covered it all in today’s post. If I missed anything please feel free to comment below or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
