Summer Bucket List with Reef X Zappos

Summer Bucket List with Reef X Zappos

It’s almost summer! Living in Southern California practically my whole life has made me love summers. Yes it can get pretty hot, but the sunshine does good things for the soul! We have actually had a ton of rain this year so whenever it’s sunny out, I take the girls outside and we just enjoy it. We love driving to the beach, the river or swimming in our backyard. And seeing how much these two little girls love to be outside makes me appreciate it that much more. Today I wanted to share some things on my summer bucket list with you! We will have a newborn baby so it will be very interesting but I’m going to stay optimistic! And I’ll be sharing why Reef sandals from Zappos fit in perfectly with our family during the summertime!

Life Lately with Toddlers

Life Lately with Toddlers

Hey guys, I hope you are all doing great! Today I wanted to fill you in on what’s going on in the Atkins household. A lot has changed with the girls, I’m now in my third trimester of this pregnancy and I thought we could just chat! I’m actually typing this in the air as we speak. I’m heading to Miami, believe it or not, on a work trip. I can’t talk about details yet, but you’ll find out soon enough! One of my good friends, Summer, is joining me since I’m pretty far along in my pregnancy. I didn’t feel comfortable traveling across the country alone so she is with me for moral support! I am going to do a post soon on traveling while pregnant and traveling without your kids. I’ve had a lot of questions asking how I feel leaving the girls and what-not, so I’ll have a post on that soon.

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

Similarities and Differences between my Twin vs Singleton Pregnancy

What is the difference between your twin pregnancy and this pregnancy?

That is the most common question I get asked these days so I decided to write a full post on what has been the same and what has been different. Sometimes it feels like I was just pregnant and then other days that time in my life feels forever ago. I even started watching some of my old pregnancy updates to compare the two and also see how big I was at different times. Now, I’m not quite in my third trimester yet, almost, but here is what I’ve realized about the two pregnancies up until this point. *And after finishing this post I am seeing how different they have been! I have been telling most people they have actually been a lot alike but now I’m realizing they have been pretty different.

Toddlers and Sleep

Toddlers and Sleep

I wanted to talk about sleep because it’s something I care A LOT about. I take naptime and bedtime pretty seriously for a few reasons. 1. The girls are in a much better mood when they get good sleep, it’s good for their development and physical growth. 2. It’s my time to get stuff done! But for reals, I really do count on their naps to film and edit videos and just get the important things done that need all my focus.

Rainbow Rangers

Rainbow Rangers

Hey guys! If you have little ones, then you are probably up-to-date on the newest children’s shows. I have to let you know about my favorite new children’s show called Rainbow Rangers airing on Nick Jr. weekdays at 3pm/2pm Central! It’s an adorable, colorful show centered around 7 girls each with their own super power. I love that they aren’t fairies or princesses – they are superheroes responsible for saving the earth. In the show, they are called “Earth’s first responders”!

Travel Tips with Toddlers: Visiting Texas and the Silos

Travel Tips with Toddlers: Visiting Texas and the Silos

So if you follow me on instagram you know we recently went to Texas! My oldest brother and his family live outside of Austin and just moved into a new home, so we wanted to visit them and also make a trip to Waco. Andrew and I are huge fans of Fixer Upper, so sad it’s over, so we’ve always wanted to see everything they’ve built out there. My parents came with us and that was SO much help. Flying with two toddlers is not easy and having two extra sets of hands was so so helpful every step of the way. Even though trips these days feel more like work than vacation, we had a great time. So I’m going to share what I thought of Magnolia Table, the Silos and give you some traveling tips with twin toddlers!

Honest Thoughts

Honest Thoughts

Hi guys. So I wanted to just sit down and write. Tell you what’s going on in my life and just how I’ve been feeling lately. Sometimes I bottle everything in and try to handle a million things all by myself and deal with it. I don’t often ‘share’ what’s on my mind. It’s just how I have always been. But the downside of that is eventually it comes out in some way. These past two weeks I’ve been off. Today has been one of those days where nothing seems to go right and you are just in a slump and want to curl up on the couch.

Summer Recap

Summer Recap

Hey guys! As summer comes to an end I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from these last few months. This summer felt like the busiest summer of my life. We really went on a ton of trips and each one was equally exhausting! Vacations with kids are definitely work, but looking back I'm so glad we did so much with the girls. We spent a lot of time in our bathing suits, at the beach, at the river and in our pool. I definitely got my fair share of vitamin d and am ready for colder weather, sweaters and football season!

Beach Babies

Beach Babies

Let's be honest, sometimes I get a little jealous of how cute my girls are in their matching outfits all the time. Sometimes I want to be in on their little pact! Their bond is growing by the day and I can't get enough of their twin connection. So to fit in a little, I decided to match them at the beach.
