baby k’tan weekender bag

Since having Carter we’ve become very picky when it comes to choosing which bags we travel with.  It has to fit all of her things + some of mamas, fit underneath the seat of the airplane, keep her food cold and have a changing pad.

We found the Baby K’tan Weekender bag + haven’t looked back since. It met all of our requirements plus some!

The weekender bag has so many great amenities for parents of little’s like an easy access wipe dispenser, a padded nylon changing pad, and a full size insulated cooler packet! A big bonus for us is the padded tech pocket which makes it easy for us to travel with our laptops.

If you’re a mama that travels a lot like we do, this bag is a dream that you must try!

carters first birthday

The days leading up to Carters birthday were busy so we didn't have much time to stop and think about the fact that we were soon going to have a ONE year old! We decided for her first birthday we would have a party in California to celebrate.

When we were planning the party the first thing we established was that we wanted to hire vendors so that the decor, cake + food was taken care of. We were flying in from Disneyland the night before and really wouldn't have any time to put things together.

The theme that we went with was Carters Pink Paradise. When we took her to Hawaii for the first time she played her little heart out at the beach all day long, ate too much shave ice + really just fell in love with the island life so when choosing a theme we knew it had to be some kind of paradise party!

We filled the house with Hawaiian food from L &L Hawaiian BBQ, sweets from Paper Heart Patisserie, florals by Mignon Floral Co., signs by David and Leanna, enamel pins from Ways and Means/Studio Mega and topped it all off with shave ice from Kona.

Carter swam most of the day with family, ate some yummy food + then dug into her cake. She was a happy girl until it was nap time! We loved every part of the day + was so happy to celebrate our happy little bug with family + friends.

remembering the first year with mushybooks

Since Carters first birthday is coming up so soon, we decided to pull her baby book out and fill in all of the sweet moments that we don’t ever want to forget because let’s be honest, mom brain!

When we were looking for a baby book, finding a book that represented our family was so important to us. We didn’t want to have to look back and see crossed out dad + written in mom on every other page. Thankfully we found the most beautiful + perfect book – Mushybooks.

We were able to customize it with pages for both mom + mommy and a page for each baby shower that we had. Also, we loved the modern style + simplicity of each page.

The book is everything we ever wanted for our baby book + now it’s filled with photos and memories of our sweet babe. It’s something we’ll cherish forever.
