Hi everyone!

As most of you know if you follow me on Instagram, my husband started a new job last week. We are a one car family and Jake having a job an hour away really made it hard for Lila and I to get around town. We made it work but we knew eventually we were going to have to get a second car or Jake was going to have get a job closer to home.

An amazing opportunity came up for him to work just a few minutes away from home and it has been such a blessing so far. We now drop him off and pick him up from work, which leaves us with the car all day. It has worked out flawlessly so far and we get an extra three hours a day with him. You read that right, an extra THREE hours a day with him. Before his commute was an hour each way, and he would leave an extra 45 minutes early in the morning to pick up breakfast and find a parking spot. Then on his way home, traffic would make his drive take an extra 10-15 minutes longer.

Besides having all this extra time with Jake, which has put us over the moon with happiness, we also get to explore more of our city. We have made a point to keep active and explore everyday even if it’s just going to get a smoothie or going to a park.

I hope everyone is having a great afternoon!

Baby Bjorn’s Fall Party at Mr Bones Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday we attended a lovely fall party showcasing Baby Bjorn‘s new line The Woods at Mr. Bone’s Pumpkin Patch in Culver City. The colors of their new line are spot on for fall, but timeless enough to wear all year.

Ever since I was a young girl I have developed hay fever almost instantly upon arriving at our local farm. I haven’t been to a farm or pumpkin patch in years and I decided to brave it. Unfortunately I did not outgrow my hay fever allergy so we had to cut the party short.

There were pumpkins to paint and decorate for the kiddos, and we did not leave without our fair share of glitter glue and pom poms on our clothes. Luckily we got there before the event started so I was able to take some photos on my phone before guests arrived.

One of the best parts of this event was catching up with some of my favorite mommy friends. You can see all the photos of the event on Instagram searching hashtag #FallForBabyBjorn or by clicking here.

There were pumpkins of every size, shape, and color. It was so much fun seeing all the pumpkins and to see Lila play at all the activities they had for the kids to do.

We will definitely have to come back again before Halloween. Thanks for having us Rachel Pitzel! You’re one heck of a party planner.
