Big Red

So remember that gum Big Red? Remember how spicy it was at first & then lost its flavor? Then what did you do? Unwrapped another stick & popped it in your mouth.

Beckette is my Big Red. She’s spicy & feisty & I cannot get enough of her.

Words && a whole lotta photos//

20140216-201319.jpg

On Valentine’s Day a friend of mine posted on Facebook something that has really got me thinking. She lost the one she loves tragically and now she is left on earth while he is in heaven. She was reflecting on the comments people make on V-day about singles being miserable every February 14th and about how it can be quite hurtful and insensitive. It really convicted me. Not because I’m blabbing judgments on single people on valentines day but because I am guilty of complaining or casting judgment about all sorts of random things without considering the journey others are on. I never want to be a person who speaks flippantly but in order to not be a person like that I need to make a conscious decision and renew my mind regularly. I need to remain in Him for He is love. Today and everyday I choose love. I choose grace. I choose joy. I choose honesty && self control. What do you choose?

Now for your viewing pleasure while you think//

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…

• s w e e t • babies

All babies are sweet. I know that. However my babies are needing some extra special attention lately. They are both going through big changes in their little bodies & they need me to be extra //sweet// with them & that is just fine with me.

My Major man is typically so easy going & happy all day long. Lately he’s been attached to my hip //or boob// & I’m guessing it’s teething but who knows? It honestly doesn’t really matter anyways because if he wants me to hold him all day, I will. Nothing will become priority over that. No amount of chores or orders will ever come first. E V E R.

As for my main girl, she’s still working through her new fears & is growing more & more aware of things by the day. I’m doing my best to be patient with her when she doesn’t want to go get her water because she’d have to walk under the smoke alarm. Even the Hello Kitty stickers we put on them hasn’t cured the problem.

What do you do to tackle separation anxiety in your littles?

Vesty Beshky

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.

//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.

20131119-150937.jpg

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!

|hold up//back up//play it cool|

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!

|hold up//back up//play it cool|

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!
