Parisian ✈️. #tbt . Throwing it back to Paris, le sigh, and @hotelcostes. @khalilknows and I were so exhausted after the flight that we fell right to sleep when we got to the hotel room. We totally considered just ordering room service because we did not want to get up and get ready for dinner. I am so glad we rallied! This place was so fun, the food was amazing, a we made lots of good memories. Take me back please!!!! 💕 . What’s your go-to on your first night of a vacation? Room service and adjusting to timezones? Or do you hit the town on night one?
And so the adventure begins 🎒📚 ⠀ .⠀ It is #twintuesday and my babies are off to school - FULL DAY! 😭⠀ .⠀ I know, I know, I am missing the adorable sign. ♀️I should’ve been on top of that. It was chaotic enough trying to get them out the door… probably makes sense that I didn’t have one, ha. ⠀ .⠀ Anyway the #twins are officially off to their second year of Pre-K. They had a great first week, and I am so pumped to watch them grow and mature this year.⠀ .⠀ What about you guys, how is the first week going?
🤰🏻New Blog Post 🤰🏻⠀ .⠀ Today is juicy one…. we are diving into something called #DiastasisRecti – a #postpartum condition that I had never heard of in my life before having the twins!⠀ .⠀ #twinmoms did you experience this? What has your post-pregnancy journey been as a #fitmom? Comment below 👇
I am feeling a #mcm today🥰⠀ .⠀ @khalilknows was out of town this past weekend on a business trip, and the girls and I missed him so much. It reminded me how lucky the #twins and I are to have him in our lives. ⠀ .⠀ I think sometimes having the opportunity to miss one another is really good for a relationship. I mean, it can be so easy to get caught up in the daily grind of life that we can forget to appreciate our partners. This weekend was a great reminder of how much we still love each other - and how grateful I am the he is the one I am going to grow old with. At least we will have each other when our babies grow up and leave us😭❣️⠀ .⠀ When is the last time you and your partner got to really miss each other?
#sundayfunday! 😎⠀ Flashback to a super fun-day when we did tie-dye & temporary tattoos! I mean could they be cuter?!⠀ .⠀ We stopped by the library to grab some new books, and the #twins could not resist the opportunity to show off the sweet t-shirts they made and the new @duckystreet tattoos they got. My little #fasionistas 💕 ⠀ .⠀ What is your favorite craft to do with your kiddos?!
❣️New Blog Post❣️⠀ .⠀ In this post I explore our (labor intensive) experience with finding a #preschool for the #twins, and why we decided to go with a #montessori program. ⠀ .⠀ Has anyone else considered this more self-directed activity, hands-on, and collaborative play model for education? ⠀ .⠀ BONUS: Swipe for extra cuteness 👉
“Mama, lets take a selfie” - Ava 🤗⠀ .⠀ After coming back from our beach weekend a few weeks ago, Khalil and I were EXHAUSTED. So, we made no plans for Labor Day. The #twins, however, were not sleepy at all. So, we decided last minute to check out the #lawnexhibition in DC. They had a blast, and I got some super cuddle time with this cutie, Ava, who has been so amazing and patient with all of us going #glutenfreedairyfree for Nahla’s health.⠀ .⠀ With all of the extra food planning, we have been trying out NOT planning so much in advance with other stuff - and just going with the flow. So far it’s been pretty amazing!⠀ .⠀ What about you guys, better luck with planning or go-with-the-flow?!
Family Funday!!⠀ .⠀ #TBT to a fun day at the @smithsoniannmnh⠀ #butterflypavilion 💗The girls love butterflies & they are at the perfect age to actually enjoy the cool museums we have in DC . I thought the #deeptime dinosaurs were going to be the favorite for sure, however the 🦋 stole the show for them.⠀ .⠀ Do your kids like museums? Any favorites?
Dynamic Duo👯♂️⠀ . Nahla & Ava had their open classroom orientation this past week. They were 😆 to meet the new kiddos and catch up with their teachers & friends. I mean could they look any bigger in this picture!? I literally feel like they went from #babies to #bigkids overnight. I am not sure if I am ready for it! ⠀ .⠀ ✨Bonus from our raffle that we won ----> This VIP parking spot for the whole year!? We are super pumped!
NEW BLOG POST⠀ 💖⠀ Since its back to school time I thought this was as good a time as any to cover a topic I get asked about a lot. To split or not split #twins up when they start school!?⠀ 💖⠀ #twinmoms - what has your experience been with your kiddos starting school?! Do you put them in the same classroom or did you split them up?
What have you done since having kids to simplify your beauty routine?! 💕 I feel like all my beauty must-haves came into my life right after the twins were born. I mean I had to simplify my getting ready as I had NO time! One of the first things I did was eyelash extensions. Nothing makes me feel more put together than super full and feminine lashes. 💕 Check out my recent blog post on my experience with Lash extensions and why I’ve made the switch to using @latisse instead. 💕 Swipe 👉for the before and after!
Now that was a fun trip 😎 Throwing it back to this last minute getaway to Miami for @khalilknows & I. We literally flew in on Saturday morning and had to be back early Monday. It was #artbasel so we wanted to make the best of our 2 days. I get anxiety with these types of trips because they are so last minute. My mom just happened to be visiting & was pumped to keep the 👯. I will admit, it was so much fun! We stayed at the Delano & saw some really amazing art. Point being, spontaneous trips can often be the best ones. You go into it with low expectations and then have the best time. 💕 When was your last spur of the moment adventure with your partner?!
Out of office 👋🏻⠀ .⠀ We officially had our last summer getaway this weekend! We went to Dewey Beach & our first stop was #funlandrehoboth …of course🤗⠀ .⠀ It was an exhausting car ride that’s for sure! It felt like the entire drive was alternating between the twins fighting & “are we there yet”…. literally, I was ready to pull my hair out🤦🏻♀️🤣⠀ .⠀ But, OMG…the looks on the 👯 faces when we arrived was priceless! @khalilknows & I had that proud parent moment☺️ Like, oh yeah… we got this! ⠀ .⠀ What was your favorite “Oh yea -I got this” moment of the summer?!
It’s only about who you’re riding with 👯♀️ #twintuesday⠀ .⠀ Can we talk about these faces excitement though🤗I am not kidding when I say, I think Nahla & Ava would live here if they could. It is so amazing how much kiddos love these rides! The only sad moment of the day was when they didn’t meet the height requirement for bumper cars 🤣 ⠀ . ⠀ I was terrified of roller coasters as I kid! Not these #wildchild girls though, must get it from @khalilknows side🤷🏻♀️ ⠀ .⠀ Do your kids have the fearless gene or do they need more of a nudge towards adventure?
❣️NEW BLOG POST❣️⠀ .⠀ All we want in life is for our kids to be the happiest and healthiest they can be. Right? This week’s post is not only about our first couple weeks cutting out all dairy and gluten, but about the winding road we have been on pretty much since Nahla was a baby… to get to this point, of doing an elimination diet with a four-year-old.⠀ ❣️⠀ Have any other moms out there struggled to find out the cause/solution for something causing your child to suffer in some way?
👗NEW BLOG POST👗⠀ .⠀ It’s just about back to school time for us - and that means shopping for some new clothes for the girls.⠀ 💞⠀ After the first few years, I think I am officially over the urge to buy my kids super expensive clothes for everyday. 🙃 Check out the new blog post for more on where I find the best deals and cutest styles! .
