Our taco game is on point, friends! 😆 These are actually blue corn quesadillas that we enjoyed today for breakfast at a coffee shop named Peltre @peltre_loncheria They had mushrooms, cheese and flor de calabaza (squash blossoms) and tasted delicious! 😋Blue corn is originally from central Mexico💙 #DiningInMexico#CDMX#QuesadillaTime#Peltre
I’m currently attempting to read an actual book which takes about 17 weeks when someone is interrupting you every half a page for a graham cracker with peanut butter, causing you to reread every paragraph multiple times. But so far “Present Over Perfect” by Shauna Niequist is brilliant, centering and calming and I highly recommend it, one half page at a time.
Spent a fantastic weekend on a mountain, in the snow, shooting this gorgeous family, and relaxing with my own. And also reading like 3 consecutive pages. Wins.
This kid right here makes me so proud. Did we wait till the last minute? Yes. Was it stressful? Yes. Did we stay up past our bedtimes? Yes. Was it worth it?? Yes! Although he did not advance to regionals, he had one of the top science projects in his grade and worked hard. I believe he found a small love for science too! He's already excited to try again next year. One of the questions the judges asked was if you could change one thing about your project what would it be..... he says "I would start working on it earlier!" 🤣 Well ain't that the truth!! #latergram#jamesisaac#sciencefair#hestillgotaribbon#procrastinator#hegotitfromhismama#paperairplanes#boymom@timbalderas
The spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hands of man. ▪️My first trip to Oregon had to include seeing some of its majestic landscape. And although it was a quick trip to the forest, it was powerful. ▪️Yet again, Pure Romance has given me the opportunity to travel. After training the amazing women of Portland (and beyond!), I realize just how impactful this side hustle can be. From traveling, helping others to empowering women and ensuring they are financially secure, Pure Romance has been a game changer for many!
Sometimes I get in my own head, and convince myself that I’ll never make it. I compare myself to others around me, and get freaked out about my own goals. Even though I KNOW I have some amazing people cheering me on, I get caught up in judging myself.
I needed this🖤
This weekend we took a break from LIFE to spend some time with Coach and to take in all the perks of the Polynesian Bowl. While it’s not ideal that my oldest missed practice and a game I feel like it was NEEDED! Our family has always instilled in our boys that sports always come first—being at every game, every practice. So it’s not like us to miss things but lately it’s been different. I’ve been feeling that missing sports isn’t such as much as a “big deal” then I used to be. It’s tough to miss things all-around no matter what it is.....but I want to know, how do you feel about missing sports?
It’s so easy for us (especially in Hawaii) to have sports everyday, ALL YEAR LONG! As a coach’s and former player’s wife, it has never been a question whether my boys would make it to practice or make it to a game. We try to teach our boys commitment, responsibility, and team work. And I think (that as does other sports parents) we often feel that sports are priority BUT I also believe that as children, they need to be children. I want my kids to go to birthday parties. I want them to enjoy their childhood and I want to do family vacation! So where do we draw the line between prioritizing life and opportunities for sports and responsibilities? .

Of all things I’ve accomplished thus far, the greatest of all is being Mom! He may be almost 9, but he still loves as big as the sky. Curling up in my lap to go to sleep doesn’t happen as often as it used to, but when it does my heart swells as big as can be! #boymom#sadlershenanigans 💜
My favorite lines of this weekend:
Dominic (very loudly, in a public restroom. With people in other stalls)- “Daddy has a pee pee and I have a pee pee cuz I’m a boy. And you don’t have a pee pee, mommy, cuz you’re a girl.” (Repeat about 5xs) 🤦🏻♀️ Marcello (trying to feed Elias a pb&j sandwich)- “Elias eat!! Take a bite!! Ughh He’s making me so frustrated! I’m just getting so frustrated!” Dominic (when given fruit as a “prize” for finishing his dinner)- “Uhh mom can I have a different prize? I just want something good. Like chocolate.” Goal- write all their daily shenanigans down in a notebook so I’ll remember.
I can’t believe that exactly 2 years ago I was admitted because I had mild contractions all day. And After being monitored for about an hour my water broke and the only think I was thinking of was “how will I have this baby in less than 2 hours!!!!” ⠀⠀
To be honest I did not want my kids to share birthdays and as much as I prayed and hoped that wouldn’t happen, god and the universe had another plan for us. ⠀⠀
6 hours later I was holding my second baby, Elias, while my first born was at home with grandma cutting a cake for his official birthday (since we celebrated his birthday two weeks in advance — just to be safe lol ) ⠀⠀
Sure enough now they hold such an amazing bond as brothers that I couldn’t be more grateful for. I love seeing them grow up together as such best friends. #boymom⠀⠀
❤️💛 I’m not a football girl but this was a good season for the Chiefs. When you love someone (Ben) you end up liking what they like, hence this post. Let’s try again next year! #chiefskingdom#kcchiefs#chiefs
Rafa doing his own thing at @cucina_oamaru while Patrick and I had a meal in peace at @tees_st. All three of us really like Oamaru. It’s only an hour and a half from Dunedin. On Sunday we ended up doing a completely last minute day trip, our souls were all the happier for it. Plus we got to meet the lovely family behind @cucina_oamaru and @tees_st Have you been to Oamaru? I’ve only been twice and am still doing/seeing the touristy type things but hopefully overtime I’ll get to know the area better ✨ #Oamaru#waitaki

Super Blood Wolf Moon
Eclipse 🌑Not as clear as I wanted. My camera and telescope were struggling but sharing the moments with my boys will forever be a vivid memory.

Lokey and I are space junkies! We love to talk about the stars, planets, sun and moon! When I found out there was a lunar eclipse tonight and it was a super blood wolf moon I knew we had to see it!! Plus note he doesn’t have school tomorrow! So he went to bed at normal time and I woke him up to see it! Sharing stuff like this with him is the best! I’m raising a nerd🤓 and I’m totally cool with that!

This 2nd birthday party may take the cake even from last year (see what I did there? 🙃)
***This took me a long time to plan and a lot of early mornings and late nights to make (I don’t have “so much time” like many people think since I “don’t work” 😐). I absolutely love doing this, but some moms don’t, and THAT’S OK! I post about what I make because I’m proud of my hard work, never to make anyone else feel bad because they didn’t do something like this or because they don’t even want to do it. Just like there are different styles of parenting, there are different styles of moms! Sure, maybe I’m a “Pinterest Mom” and I’m ok with that. It’s frustrating to be judged on a passion that I have, simply because other people think it’s over the top or it’s just no their “thing”. Support that Pinterest mom for working her ass off making everything and tell the mom who bought everything for her kid’s party that she’s amazing for taking the time to even put something together. One type of mom isn’t better than the other. We’re all just out here trying to survive and make it to the next day. ❤️

Like Mama, Like Son💙
Some days parenting is just plain difficult and hard man. The days when they’re long and you’re just feeling like a failure. But then you have these days...the really good ones. Where they’re just full of adventure and belly laughs, and you’re trying to squeeze as much daylight out of the day as you can. These are the days.

Mama bear and papa bear 🧸. We flew to New York to have our baby shower so we could celebrate with all of our family and friends. We got a house in the hills for the weekend near our hometown. It was so quaint and we’re so excited to share him with everyone! 👶🏼
