Husky Chili Recipe

October 14, 2018


We keep getting requests for what we feed our big family, so we thought it was time to bring back recipe posts! We are always experimenting with clean ingredient recipes, and finding things that are relatively low cost that everyone will actually eat. Gabe is a master at working with flavors, so today his is sharing his husky and hearty chili recipe we used this weekend that fed over 25 people! We had a bunch of family over for dinner, so we doubled this recipe for an extra large batch. Scroll to the bottom to copy the recipe!


Family Halloween Costume Ideas.

October 12, 2018


We know many of our readers don’t have facebook or instagram, so here is a compilation of all of our past family costumes, and a plea to help us figure out this year’s! Any votes?? My mom and dad always made every holiday come alive for us, and I hope to continue this with my own family. I don’t know how long they will be on board for family costumes, but so far they have loved it…..


8 Pieces, 8 Fall Looks (+ Video)

October 10, 2018

As the mornings get cooler here in Atlanta, I am starting to slowly swap out my wardrobe for more transitional pieces I can mix and match. The afternoons are still really warm so it is the trickiest time of year to figure out what to wear! I asked my stylist Amanda from Trunk Club to help find some good options for the fall season, and she hit the nail on the head! These are 8 looks I created with 8 pieces of clothing (and two pairs of boots!)

10 Couples Costume Ideas.

October 5, 2018

Gabe was always a good sport in college for theme parties, and we just kept finding ways to keep the humor going over the years. We rounded up 10 relatively easy couples costume ideas for you today, and I am super impressed with how legit some of these look! Read on for all 10 ideas.

Luke and Leia – For our family costume last year we did a Star Wars theme (more on family costumes soon!), so after all the kids chose their characters we ended up as Luke and Leia. (Gabe switched to Hans for trick or treat night – ha!) I couldn’t find a costume so ended up wearing a robe backwards with a pair of boots. Gabe decided to do the look from the Yoda and Luke training scene, and sweat stained an old tee to pair with some Khakis. If you have a little one, we used an Ergo Baby carrier to put yoda on his back.

Easy and affordable ways to decorate for fall.

October 1, 2018


I tend to over do it with Christmas decor, but I keep it pretty minimal for Halloween! Because my children get SO enthused if I so much as put out a pumpkin, I try to at least put a little in each room for October and November:) Here are a few easy and affordable ways to decorate for fall.


A lighting solution for better sleep schedules.

September 28, 2018


(Today’s post is written by Gabe.)

We recently stumbled upon Philips Hue smart lighting while researching creative nightlight solutions for our children. Our standard plug in nightlights were always getting lost (Rocco and Zelie found it very amusing to steal and hide them), causing an extra layer of craziness in an already crazy bedtime routine. With school starting back up for Gabriel, Veronica, and Max, we needed to find a better solution than hunting down hidden nightlights. Routines can make all the difference with 5 children, especially when it comes to starting and ending the day smoothly. I was mainly looking for a new lighting option that I could set the brightness and color tone, and that could automatically turn on and off at set times.  


5 Minute Makeup + 5 Minute Hair Steps!

September 24, 2018


I think once you find your go-to makeup items, it can take 5 minutes to get your routine down. Skin care is the key to minimal makeup, but it is so nice to have a few items that help me feel awake and ready to face the day. This is a break down of 5 minute every day makeup routine as well as what I use when I want to dress up a little more. I use Beautycounter as a one stop shop for all my makeup, skin care, and hair care items since I know I can trust their ingredients to be safe, but they are comparable in performance to my old favorites.
