Into The Wild

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory
Our favorite time of the year has finally arrived! The temperature has dropped & we’ve already taken our second trip to the mountains. We headed a couple of hours out of LA for a little getaway in the mountains & it felt so good to get out of the city. We all are so much happier when we get outdoors, so I think you could say this holiday season is off to the perfect start!
family photo outfitsSince we would be in the perfect setting, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to take a few family photos. How adorable are all of my boys in their matching buffalo plaid!? I couldn’t resist these little Sherpa & plaid jackets for the boys from Old Navy. All 3 of them were so excited to be matching & I’m not exaggerating when I say that they’ve been wearing these everyday since they arrived because they are beyond cozy. They’re the perfect pop of color for these photos too!

I am obsessed with the Sherpa trend right now & Old Navy has the cutest pieces for the whole family. We’re already planning another trip to the mountains for more of an excuse to bundle up in these comfy pieces! Also, you guys might not be able to tell from the photos but these are the softest jeans I’ve ever worn & I legitimately can’t stop wearing them. I’m all about comfort AND style when it comes to our fall/winter wardrobes, it’s so important!

Life Updates & Disneyland

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

The past two weeks have been nuts! So many different things have been going on from family in town to doctors appointments that I figured I would just give you a little update.

Malibu Farm

I’ve had multiple doctors appointments, ultrasounds & CT scans for random lumps & bumps that my doctors discovered over the past few months. Don’t worry, everything is looking good! I just have to monitor them & go back in another 3-6 months to make sure they’re not growing. For now, though, they all have remained the same size & are benign. A little PSA for all you girls & women out there, make sure & stay up on your annual check ups & breast checks with your OBGYN. I know so many girls my age who have had lumps found in their breasts & while most of them are benign, it’s important to find those things early just in case they could be something more serious. Not trying to scare you at all, just trying to encourage you all to stay up on your appointments because I was pretty bad at staying up on mine until I got pregnant with Kannon 🙂

Malibu PierMalibu Farm Nachos Malibu Farm Vegetarian TacosMalibu Farm Kids

My brother & sister in law were in town last week with their three kids & we had the best time. We miss them so much now that they live in Utah & any chance we can all get together is the best. We spent a couple of days at Disneyland, which was so exciting but also SO exhausting. I always forget how tiring multiple days at Disneyland are! Don’t get me wrong, I love Disneyland more than most but it’s a lot of walking around with multiple kids in tow. I loved that we split up the days though so we only went to one park per day instead of park hopping both days. We also spent a day in Malibu and if you guys follow us on social media, you know that Malibu is one of our favorite places to go during Spring/Summer. I highly recommend eating at Malibu Farm on the pier & doing a beach day either before or after. Make sure & bring a sweater/jacket though because it can get cold on the pier with the wind.

I think we all suffered from exhaustion from everything that we did last week because our entire little family ended up with the flu for the past 5 days. That probably has to do with our immune systems being down from lack of sleep &, not the healthiest diet (who can turn down churros at Disneyland!? Not this girl!). All in all, though, we’ve been having far too much fun & are ready to be back to “normal life” for the next couple of weeks before our next trip 🙂

Family Holiday Pajamas

Macy's Cyber Monday Macy's Family Pajamas Adam Gregory Holiday Family Pajamas Matching Family Pajamas Macys Pajamas Macy's Pajama Sale Holiday PajamasIt’s the holiday season & I am so unbelievably excited, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! This truly is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons. This time of year we get to spend so much time with our loved ones & honestly, there is nothing better than that! Although Christmas pajamas take a very close second 🙂

Christmas pajamas have been a tradition in my family my entire life & it’s one of my favorite traditions that I’ve continued with our little family! Every Christmas Eve we sleep in our Christmas pajamas & it’s so much fun waking up Christmas morning with them on. Plus, matching pajamas makes for THE cutest photos! When we all tried these pajamas on, my heart melted seeing my two boys matching. This is Hendrix’s first Christmas & my heart nearly burst picturing my boys together for their first big holiday as brothers!

Back to these perfect matching family pajamas though! You all know Macy’s is my go-to shopping destination for every occasion if you read this post. But Macy’s has THE best pajama selection for the whole family (dogs included!) & they make finding family pajamas so easy. They have a great selection and best of all, they’re having an incredible Cyberweek promotion for 65% off when your purchase 2 or more sets & 50% off if you purchase 1 set. That is seriously such a great deal & family pajamas make the perfect gift as well. So if you’re in the market for family pajamas, head on over to Macy’s because I’m obsessed with all of the different prints & styles (hello, footie pajamas!!) & you can find these family pajamas only at Macy’s!

I would love to know, do you have a family pajama tradition!? Let me know in the comments!

Thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own 🙂

A Little Love Note For My Love

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

This post was sponsored by Hallmark Signature through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write this post, all opinions are 100% my own.Adam GregoryWhen thinking back on this year, I instantly think of the many changes that occurred and how I managed to stay sane through it all. I’m going to be completely honest with you guys, some days were hard and ended in tears (I’m blaming pregnancy hormones for most of those days though ;)).

Hallmark Holiday CardsCouple's PhotosMost days were wonderful though and full of adventures with my favorite people. Those adventures will be remembered for a long time to come and will forever be some of my favorite memories. This year was one of the most eventful years of my life and I’m grateful for every experience. Whether they were good or hard, each and every experience helped me grow as an individual.

To be honest though, I don’t think I would have made it through this past year so graciously if it weren’t for my husband, Adam. When thinking about this entire past year (and the past seven and a half years), there was never a moment that he wasn’t there for me. From the many trips to the store for ice chips when I was so sick from pregnancy, to the many times I was homesick in NYC and he managed to put a smile on my face. So, I hope this doesn’t embarrass you babe but I’m dedicating this post to you! 🙂

Love note to your husbandFamily Holiday PhotosI’m so unbelievably thankful to have you by my side. There are so many moments that I just sit back and think about how lucky I am to have you as my forever, my partner in crime and the best daddy to our two little boys. Our life together has been full of ups & downs, as most people’s lives are but I wouldn’t want to do this thing called “life” without you by my side. I hope you loved the Hallmark Signature card that I chose for you (& the fact that it doubles as a Christmas ornament!). I loved seeing your face light up when I gave it to you!

Thank you for encouraging me daily to pursue the things I love and am passionate about. Without your help and encouragement, I might have never had the courage to start this blog. You’re the best photographer and videographer a girl could ever wish for and you’re SO much more than an “instagram husband”. 🙂

Thank you for loving me (despite my flaws) and for helping me through every obstacle we’ve ever faced together. Life isn’t always easy but I’m so thankful to have your love and support for the difficult times.

Thank you for loving our boys more than anything and for raising them to be loving, strong, faithful, respectful and all of the wonderful qualities you’re helping instill in them. They both love you so much and seeing you three together melts my heart.

Thank you for living a Christ centered life & for helping us have a Christ centered family.

Thank you for being willing to help anyone and everyone without expecting anything in return. Your kindness motivates me to be a better person on the daily.

Thank you for everything. I love you forevers and evers! 🙂

Gender Reveal

Boy or Girl!?

Boy or Girl Gender RevealBoy or Girl!?Cupcake Gender Reveal It's A Boy Boy Gender Reveal Big BrotherIT’S A BOY!!!

We are beyond excited to welcome another little boy into our family! I’m so glad that we can finally announce the gender because it took us forever to confirm that this little one is a boy. We found out at our 12 week ultrasound that there was a 99% chance that he was a boy (we found out that early with Kannon as well!) but we always wait to confirm because of all of the stories I’ve heard where the baby ends up being a girl haha. Anyways, moving to NYC made it super difficult because I couldn’t find a doctor that would see me due to the fact that I was past my first trimester & trust me when I say that I tried all of the doctors surrounding us (a lot of tears were shed in that process & I was seriously debating just moving back home to LA.. Pregnancy hormones at their finest :)) We eventually found a doctor that would see me (God bless her!!) & about a week or so ago, we got two confirmations that he is definitely a boy!! I obviously haven’t had a girl before but I LOVE being a momma to a little boy & I can’t wait to have another little boy soon! Kannon is very excited to be a big brother & he already is so sweet about his baby brother. He’s named his baby brother “veggies” & if we refer to him as anything else, he gets very upset. Let’s all hope that he stays this sweet even after baby brother is born 😉

I’m so excited that I can finally start preparing for this little love to enter the world. Let the fun purchases begin!!! 

Rancho Bernardo Inn

Pool Day

Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn Rancho Bernardo Inn _ARI9917 Rancho Bernardo InnLast week we spent a few days at the Rancho Bernardo Inn & it was the perfect little family getaway! If you read this post last week, you have already heard a bit about our trip. It worked out to be a great Father’s Day present for Adam. In his words, “what better way to celebrate being a dad than getting to play with my son for 3 days straight!?” & that right there ladies & gentlemen is one of the many reasons I love him so much. I really lucked out in the husband department!

As I’ve said before, Kannon is such a little fish & just loves the water so much. Whether it be the bath, the ocean or a swimming pool, he is in his element. We honestly had so much fun having a pool day that none of us wanted to leave. I grew up in Arizona where the Summer’s are HOT to say the least & you were required to either be in an air conditioned building or to have a pool day so you didn’t overheat. So for me, a pool day with the family is always a fun time & brings back a plethora of fun memories growing up.

Don’t mind my glasses in the pool haha! My eyes are still recovering a bit from overuse of contacts so I try to not wear my contacts as much as possible. I will say though, that wearing glasses in the pool with a two year old who loves to splash is an interesting experience. I think I would have been able to see better without my glasses altogether as opposed to having water droplets covering the lenses the entire time 🙂 I hope you enjoyed our pool day photos & a little snippet into our trip. Love you guys!
