Party • a n i m a l s

These two crazies [Beckette James & Major Vonn] went to bed promptly at 8pm without a fuss. I shoulda known…

10:20pm rolls along & I come into our room with Beckette sitting up demanding to watch “Beckette shows” & Major is kicking his blankies off in his cradle. I know what you’re thinking. Why is a seven month old in a cradle? Well I don’t really have a good reason other than he just is.

Well to make a short story long, you’d think they’d be sleepy & cranky all day, but no. They’re as bright eyed & bushy tailed as ever…

Background: So Beshky was my husband’s nickname from a lot of people in highschool so naturally, it’s been passed on to me & then Beckette.

Today we had an exciting outing to go to the new Corner Bakery (we’re a one-Target kind of town) & then eventually visit Santa.

I thought this Santa trip would be just like our other two trips. I was so wrong. She wouldn’t even sit on my lap since I was sitting on his chair. She finally stopped screaming once daddy picked her up but this kid could not be b r i b e d. No lollipop, no hat, no promise of presents. We left with no smiles & a very unsubtle ass graze by the big man I’m red.

So did we have a successful Santa photo? Well, you be the judge.

What we wore: me- Ray Bans, vintage vest, foo fighters tee, forever 21 tribal pants, white hightop chucks. Beck- gap vest & jeggings, target tee, H&M boots. Major- gap denim shirt, target tee, cotton on pants, Walmart boots.

XO,

//Workin// for the weekend.

Life for the Holstrom crew is pretty busy, so we are always looking forward to our weekends together. I like to keep our schedule full while my husband would prefer to just hang- yet he’s the one with all the demanding commitments. I just wanna do the fun stuff! Ha!
Our weekends are typically devoted to family time but this weekend was a bit different. The hubs is the worship pastor at our church and they had their annual planning meeting. So that meant he was out of town for the weekend and I was hangin with the kids solo. ||All you single mamas rule ps.||
We spent some time with friends, went to the mall and rode the carousel, snuggled, phinn did a ton of drumming, we all wrestled, ate some yummy food, took naps, watched some cat in the hat, listened to what does the fox say, || roughly three hundred and twenty six times || && of course had a little photoshoot with TimerCam. •obviously•

Dress for success.

Being a stay at home mom is such a privilege. However, it also means I have very few activities I HAVE to get to. That being said it’s pretty easy to just stay in sweats and a top knot all day long. Ya feel me? I mean the nannies and babes at the park don’t mind one bit. But I mind! I have started to come to terms with a fact that I really already knew but was just ignoring. The way that I look really affects the way that I feel. I’m not super high maintenance by any means but there are a few things I’ve gotta do in order to feel good. When I take the time to get dressed in something cute, put on a little makeup, and dare I even say schedule a shower I am a better wife, mama, and friend! Of course some days are lazy days or just plain bad days but what I am learning is that sometimes my day goes that way simply because I do not put the effort into myself to make me feel good. So that being said sometimes you just gotta get dressed and snap a few photos to shake you out of that funk!

Oh my goodness! This is real! My first blog entry! Eeek! I have wanted to do this for a long time & I’m finally brave enough to do it!

Hey guys! It’s me, Sarah! Let’s be friends! I am the wife of a bearded babe and the mama of two littles- Phinneus Bear & Tallulah Perri. We all live in sunny Southern California where we are committed to pursuing joy & Jesus daily!  My life is far from perfect but it sure is beautiful. I believe that perspective is everything & I am currently in a season of choosing to be present and purposeful. My goal here is to document the beauty and laugh like crazy through out this wild ride.

I’ve been in search of a creative outlet and a way to make myself known- to be vulnerable. I tend to be the don’t ask don’t tell type but I’m looking for a change. I want to be open and honest so here we go- the  g o o d, the b a d, & the u g l y  all coming from yours truly!
