819 1024 Sheridan Gregory

Since I turned 28 a few weeks ago, I thought it might be fun to share 28 things you might not know about me. I’m pretty open with you guys so it was actually kind of difficult to come up with these BUT I hope you learn a little bit more about me & then I would love for you to share something about yourself in the comments below so I can get to know you all a little bit more!

sheridan gregory about me

1.) I love to sleep. If I could, I would sleep 10 hours every night & take a nap during the day.

2.) I got married when I was 19 (more on that in an upcoming youtube video so make sure you’re subscribed)!

3.) I’m a certified nutritional consultant.

4.) I have had anxiety for as long as I can remember.

5.) I’m obsessed with reading & have been since I was 4 years old.

8.) I’m allergic to chocolate (technically cacao).

9.) I’m a pescatarian.

20.) I’m wildly terrified of the ocean but also completely fascinated by it.

21.) I wanted to be a veterinarian until I was a teenager.

22.) I can’t deal with blood, it makes me light headed & want to pass out (the reason I didn’t become a vet)!

23.) My family is my everything.

24.) I am terrible at small talk. It’s quite embarrassing to be honest haha.

25.) I speak fluent sarcasm but unfortunately don’t speak any other languages.

26.) The sound of ticking clocks makes me crazy.

27.) I have a bad deviated septum but I’m too scared to get it fixed.

summer bucket list

Summer Bucket List

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

Since we are already halfway through July, I thought it would be fun to put together a little ‘2018 Summer Bucket List’ filled with the activities we want to do before the end of August. Kannon starts kindergarten the end of August & it is blowing my mind that he’s already so grown up! So, with that said, we got together as a family & put together this list. Once you’ve gone through it, try to guess who came up with what ideas & comment below 🙂

Before we dive into the list though, can we take a minute to talk about these photos! Every time we take family photos my heart bursts. Documenting every stage of our boys’ lives is one of my absolute favorite thing about blogging. Per usual, we got our outfits from Old Navy & I know I’ve said this before, but I love taking our whole little family in & watching everyone pick out different pieces for a fun family photo shoot! I love the Americana vibe from this shoot & think these pieces are perfect for summer. I’ll link everything below for you guys in case you’re in need of a few new looks to finish the summer out with. You guys know how much we love Old Navy, especially for the boys’ clothes, because they have the best deals & the clothes last for ages! Check out this post to see what I mean!

With that said, let’s dive into our summer plans!

2018 Summer Bucket List

 

Bonfire on the beach

Bonfires have always been one of my favorite activities EVER. Growing up in Arizona we would have them in the middle of the desert & roast marshmallows & just have the best time. Now that we live in Orange County, we are close to beaches that allow bonfires & I can’t wait to take the boys & eat alllll the s’mores!

Road Trip

I grew up taking road trips my whole life & we’ve kept on with that tradition. Some people think we’re crazy to spend so much time in the car with 2 kids but some of my favorite memories are the adventures we’ve had on road trips together. I’m not sure where our road trip will be to this summer since Adam & I promised each other we wouldn’t make any travel plans for the months of July & August so the boys could get settled in our new place & not feel even more chaos. BUT I am excited for a little (or big) road trip to explore & have another fun adventure together as a family.

Disneyland

I think you could all probably guess who chose this one 🙂 BUT I’m very excited because Adam & I have made plans to do a Disneyland date without the boys as well! The last time we went to Disneyland without kids was when I was pregnant with Kannon & let’s be honest, I wasn’t very much fun in a wheelchair haha. We’re very lucky because we just moved even closer to Anaheim & so I’m sure we’ll be having many more Disneyland adventures in our future.

Backyard Camping

So technically we don’t have a full backyard but since we have a nice sized patio now, we thought it would be fun to set up a tent & let the boys experience camping in the only way I would enjoy camping haha. I won’t lie to you guys, I’ve done a lot of camping in my life & I just don’t love it. I’m terrified of bears & loathe insects! So the only way I truly enjoy camping is on the beach or in a backyard. Since Hendrix isn’t the best sleeper outside of his own crib, we thought “backyard camping” would be the perfect way to go about it.

Water Park

I should probably start researching our options for this one because the only water parks I know nearby are Knott’s Soak City & Legoland but I’m sure there are so many more options that I just don’t know about. We’ve been in a heat wave this past week so we will probably be doing this one very soon!

Farmer’s Market

I am so excited because I LOVE farmer’s markets & apparently, there are some really great ones here in Orange County! I’m thinking that we will probably do this one year round but I’m so excited to check out the ones down here & see what they have to offer!

Baseball Game

We’ve only taken Kannon to a baseball game a couple of times & he was pretty little both times so I doubt he even remembers them. Adam LOVES baseball & while it’s not my favorite sport to watch, a baseball game is always a fun time! Plus, Hendrix hasn’t ever been to one so I think this summer is the perfect time to go.

Those are our big plans for the rest of the summer & I’m very excited to check each one off of our list! If you have a summer bucket list, let me know what you’re most excited for in the comments below. I love hearing from you guys!

Copenhagen Travel Guide

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

This post has been a long time coming BUT it’s never too late to write about a city that quickly became one of my all-time favorites. So for all of you interested, let’s dive into my Copenhagen travel diary. Copenhagen completely stole my heart from day one! Seriously though, the second we landed at the airport & got into a taxi, I was obsessed. I have never in my life seen an airport so organized! The men dealing with the taxi line had us all through that line so quickly & efficiently, it was insane! If you’ve been before, you know what I’m talking about & if you haven’t, I strongly suggest adding it to your bucket list. Yes, it’s that lovely!

copenhagen girls trip copenhagen must do copenhagen travel diary

From the people. to the food & onto the architecture & scenery, it is absolutely wonderful. I don’t say things like that lightly either so don’t stop reading because you think I’m just saying this to be nice! Honesty is the best policy & that’s what I’m here to give you ladies & gents! Seriously though, while I was there, I was already mentally planning my next trip back with my husband & kids (for all of you parents, Copenhagen is SO family friendly!) because I know they will be just as obsessed as I am. Now onto the details of our trip!

copenhagen cherry blossoms copenhagen things to do

Where We Stayed

The Square – We loved this hotel! The staff & location was perfect for wandering around the city. I would definitely recommend!

copenhagen nyhavn

Things To See/Do

Stroget – We walked down this shopping street almost daily depending on where we were walking & I loved it every time. So many different shops & is the longest pedestrian shopping area in Europe. We loved to grab a little sweet treat & stroll back to our hotels in the evenings.

Rosenborg Castle – A beautiful renaissance castle that is surrounded by amazing gardens. Definitely worth a stroll around! If you’re there in the spring, the beautiful trees are blossoming!

Kastellet – One of the best-preserved star fortresses in Northern Europe. I didn’t really know what to expect but it was really cool to walk around here. It honestly was like nothing I had ever seen before!

Amelianborg Palace – Home to the royal family & a must see! Make sure to go at 12 so you can see the changing of the guards. I think this will be one of my favorite memories from our trip because it started hailing on us during the changing of the guards & it was so unexpected that we couldn’t help laughing & ran to a church nearby to wait for the hail to stop!

The Round Tower (Rundetaarn) – The oldest functioning observatory in Europe & another must do/see! The spiral walk to the top was easy enough for almost anyone to accomplish & there is a beautiful view from the top.

Nyhavn – My absolute favorite part of Copenhagen! This is my #1 must do/see & I’m sure you can see why. The buildings lining the canal are colorful & beautiful! Plus, it’s the perfect place to sit & have a meal or drink & just relax.

Freetown Christiania – Freetown Christiania is a green and car-free neighborhood in Copenhagen established in 1971 by a group of hippies who occupied some abandoned military barracks on the site and developed their own set of society rules, completely independent of the Danish government. We were so intrigued by this little community that we just had to go check it out. It was definitely interesting & a fun little experience.

Christiansborg Palace – Located on the tiny island of Slotsholmen, contains the Danish Parliament Folketinget, the Supreme Court, and the Ministry of State. We stopped off quickly to see this palace after our stroll through Christiana. We didn’t explore inside due to time constraints but it was still fun to see!

Torvehallerne – A market full of everything you could ever want. There were so many different types of food, pastries, wine, cheese & flowers to peruse. I honestly wanted to buy so many things & next time I go to Copenhagen I will definitely be purchasing little bits for a picnic in the park!

Frederiksborg Castle – Located north of Copenhagen in Hillerød & houses The Museum of National History. We took a short train ride & the journey in itself didn’t disappoint! If you have enough time, I highly suggest visiting & exploring the gardens, they are absolutely beautiful!

Church of Our Lady – This was our last stop before we jumped in a taxi back to the airport & I’m SO glad we stopped in. This cathedral houses Bertel Thorvaldsen’s original statue of the Christ & it is absolutely breathtaking! If you’re a member of the LDS church, I think you would love to see the original statue & the original statues of the 12 apostles that are being recreated for the Rome temple! Even if you’re not religious, this cathedral is stunning & you will be amazed by how beautiful the architecture is.

Tivoli Gardens – Our hotel was right around the corner & we spent an afternoon/evening at Tivoli. It’s the second oldest amusement park & it’s definitely something to check out! There were many different food options, live music & a fun water/light show. Make sure to get some churros while you’re there because they were delicious!

What to Eat

Lagkagehuset – The most delicious danish bakery with quite a few locations around the city. We stopped in here multiple times & everything we tried was delicious. The mini pizzas & cinnamon swirls (I don’t know the correct names but you’ll know them when you see them :)) were my favorites!

Cafe Oscar – We stopped in Cafe Oscar before we headed to see the changing of the guards since it was relatively close. They had options for both meat eaters & vegetarians alike which was very nice & I loved the Vegetarian Burger.

Next Door Cafe – You MUST go here! The whole vibe of the place is amazing & the food was tasty as well. You will not be disappointed!

Riz Raz – We ate here after coming back from a day trip to Malmo, Sweden (more on that below!) & we were all pretty hungry. I loved that they had a vegetarian buffet that had a lot of great options. I believe there are two locations in the city as well which makes it a nice option!

Social – A perfect spot for breakfast or lunch along the riverside & it has great food. Everything is gluten-free (still delicious though!) & their portion for the breakfast is large enough to fuel you for most of the day. Loved this spot!

Bæst – I saved THE BEST FOR LAST! Yes, I’m that excited about this restaurant! If you are in Copenhagen, do not leave until you eat here! Honestly, this was the best meal I have ever eaten in my entire life. Not exaggerating! Their pizza is made in a wood fire oven built in Naples. Their burrata is to die for & the roasted cauliflower & ricotta with dried olives were INCREDIBLE. I dream about this meal regularly & am dying to go back again!

Torvehallerne copenhagen stroget

Day Trip

We took a day trip to Malmo, Sweden without doing much research on it beforehand. Since I’m being very honest here, I wouldn’t recommend this trip. Apparently, it’s not a very safe city (found this out after the fact & there was a drive-by shooting 2 days ago (from the day that I’m writing this

0). I don’t like to be negative but it just wasn’t really worth the trip. If you do decide to take the train over though, the thing I loved most was the Slottsträdgården! It is a beautiful park with beautiful gardens & a cafe where we stopped, took a break on a bench & just enjoyed the scenery.

That’s it for my first trip to Copenhagen! If you couldn’t tell, I absolutely adore this city & 100% recommend that you add it to your travel bucket list! If you’ve been before, comment below with your favorites!

Go-To Summer Outfit

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

You guys know that my day to day outfit is usually jeans & a tee shirt, but if I could wear something else ever single day, it would be a jumpsuit. If you haven’t ever worn one, you are seriously missing out! They have become my go-to summer outfit! There is no need to stress about putting together different pices to create an outfit & unlike dresses, you don’t have to worry about any wardrobe mishaps because you have pants on. I will say though, that you using public restrooms in a jumpsuit can be a bit awkward considering you pretty much have to strip down naked haha BUT they are still so worth that tiny hassle 🙂

I posted this red jumpsuit on my Instagram a few days ago & I received so many questions about it but sadly it’s sold out! So, I figured I should put together a post on some of the jumpsuits that I’m debating purchasing for this summer. Seriously, if you haven’t jumped on the jumpsuit bandwagon yet, take the plunge already!

Father’s Day Plans

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

How is Father’s Day already here!? This year is absolutely flying by & it’s freaking me out! Although I am beyond happy that it’s finally summer so bring on the beach & pool days! Seriously though, I can’t wait for all of the summer festivities to truly begin!

old navy mens summer old navy toddler boys old navy summer sale

Since we just moved last week, we weren’t able to go on a fun adventure for Father’s Day this year BUT that didn’t stop us from living out a tropical getaway here at home. How fun are these Old Navy prints? We’re obsessed! I love the little ‘Mini Me’ moment with Adam & Hendrix, it’s so adorable I can’t handle the cuteness! I also love how much Kannon loves picking out his own clothes these days. He loves going into Old Navy & choosing his favorite pieces. Seriously, these boys melt my heart on the daily!

old navy summer boys old navy sale old navy mens sale

With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite things to do on Father’s Day with you guys & hear what your traditions are in the comments below. We like to spend every holiday on some sort of adventure, whether that is on a trip or out & about here in LA. For Father’s Day this year we are embracing this warm weather & going to spend the afternoon having a picnic on the beach. To be honest, the beach is always our go-to because it’s our happy place. The boys are the most content when they’re playing in the sand & water, it amazes me how much the beach calms Hendrix (he’s our spirited little guy & always on the move)!

If you’re still on the hunt for some fun summer clothes, don’t miss out on the sale Old Navy is having! Up to 50% off the entire store 6/11-6/19! You guys know we love Old Navy for the whole fam so we never miss out on these killer sales!

On a random note, I just pulled out a box of clothes from when Kannon was a size 2T for Hendrix & I found so many fun Old Navy pieces! It made me smile thinking of the fun memories we made with Kannon in those clothes & now we’ll be making so many more memories with Hendrix in the same pieces. My boys are growing up too fast guys, someone slow down time ASAP because Hendrix will be 2 this weekend and I’m freaking out a little!

Cabo Travel Diary

768 1024 Sheridan Gregory
Mexico – One of my favorite places to vacation since 1990. I grew up going traveling all over Mexico every opportunity I had & those adventures are some of my most favorite to this day. It wasn’t until after I was married to Adam though that I took a trip to Cabo & I fell in LOVE with the Esperanza Resort! So, when I was asked to go on a girl’s trip with ShopStyleEsperanza Resort, Chileno Bay Resort & Alaska Airlines, my answer was an immediate YES!

[This top was actually a dress but I made it into a top 🙂 – Zip Up Skirt (On Sale!) – Straw Crossbody BagWedge Espadrilles]

I stayed at the Chileno Bay Resort this time around & it was just as incredible as my stay at the Esperanza Resort 6 years ago! Honestly, I could go on & on about how beautiful & wonderful both resorts are because they are the most stunning resorts I’ve ever stayed at but just take my word for it when I say that you should all add them to your hotel bucket list. Just look at the views & accommodations in these photos!
We had multiple meals at both resorts & every meal was delicious but I highly recommend eating at COMAL & Cocina del Mar! Although room service is always a great idea as well though 🙂

Pool & beach days are a must while in Cabo & I love that you have easy access to both from either resort. Rent a cabana & enjoy some poolside food & drinks. I couldn’t get enough of the chips, salsa & guacamole! Give me alllll the Mexican food, please & thank you!
Last but definitely not least, I had an incredible head to toe spa treatment (Pamela was my massage therapist & she was amazing). I have never felt so relaxed & honestly didn’t want to leave the spa.

[Star Tee ShirtZip Up SkirtGold Star Sneakers]

[Orange DressEspadrilles]

My absolute favorite thing is that both resorts are wonderful for a romantic getaway, a girl’s trip & they’re even family friendly for those of us with kids. I can’t wait to go back one day & take our boys with us because they would have the time of their lives! Plus, it was such a quick flight on Alaska Airlines from LAX -> SJD that it makes it so easy & convenient! I always forget how quick of a flight it is to Mexico & I loved how easy Alaska Airlines made the trip between checking in, boarding and the entire flight experience. We can’t wait to fly back to Mexico again with Alaska Airlines (or even to another destination) soon! 🙂
Special thanks to ShopStyle, Chileno Bay Resort, Esperanza Resort & Alaska Airlines for sponsoring this & for an incredible getaway!

Favorite Motherhood Moments

683 1024 Sheridan Gregory

Family days are my absolute favorite motherhood moments. I’m not just saying that either! Over the past 5+ years that I’ve been a momma, I have found that these days are the most memorable & enjoyable. Sure, they can be a little bit more work because ya know, kids! But the years flash by so quickly & if I’ve learned anything, it’s to enjoy the moments you have with your kids because I swear they’re going to be grown up & moving out of the house before I know it!

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, we wanted to do a little outing as a family before we head to Utah for my brothers’ wedding. (If you guys couldn’t tell by now, we love to take every outing & document it with a million photos & videos so that we’ll never forget these moments :)) Since we won’t be home for Mother’s Day this year, we headed to one of our favorite places, the Malibu Pier, to run around & soak up the sun. Although we won’t be home this weekend, I’m beyond excited because I get to celebrate Mother’s Day with my momma this year, (as well as my sisters & grandmas)! We’re going to have a little brunch & I can’t wait to just spend the day with them because it’s not often that we’re all together, let alone to celebrate each other on this special weekend.

On a completely separate topic, I need to give this gingham dress a shout out because I think I might live in it! Holy smokes guys, it’s so comfy & the fit is so cute for every body type (check out Old Navy to see for yourself!). Per usual, Old Navy killed it with pieces for our whole family. Shopping for all of us in one store never gets old & makes life so much simpler. I love the bold prints & colors they came out with for this season. Kannon actually picked out his outfit & it makes my momma heart proud that he has such cute style even at the age of 5. He also chose this sweater & I’m kind of jealous because I want it in my size! Anyways, if you’re celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend & need a cute outfit to wear, go snag this dress & we can be twinning! (PS if your size is sold out online, go to the store & see if they have it, that’s what I did :))
