Shop Pink Blush

Dress || Shoes (old, Similar) || Clutch/ Laptop Case: Nena & Co

Ladies, lets talk about clothes! Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with fashion. With work, dresses are a huge part of my wardrobe because they are so easy to wear and to dress up and down. When PinkBlush reached out to me, I was so excited! As a mom, it can be hard to find cute dresses or clothing for that matter that works as my busy life as a working mom. As I searched through their website I found that not only would their clothing transition easily for work and chasing after Mavryk, it would also work when I become pregnant again! (NO- not an announcement!) This dress is awesome because I can wear it during pregnancy and after baby! They have both maternity and non maternity clothing lines to fit and flatter all women and body types.

I loved the checked print and the tie up detail in the front! That has been such a popular trend this season! Trust me when I say that you need some PinkBlush in your life! I am hosting a $50 giveaway to PinkBlush on my Instagram! @kahanaora

Come on by and enter!

Have a fabulous Monday!!

Amelia Dress 3 ways!

Look #1

Look #2

Look #3

You Guys! Wow its been a long time! Life gets so busy and sometimes its hard to really plan my posts! July was full of traveling and August brought going back to work! Thats been a whole adjustment in itself! I am an 8th grade health teacher for a title one Jr. High! Its rewarding but challenging! Im finally starting to find my ground again. Then illness hit! Mavryk and I were both super sick and I have had a cough for almost two weeks now. Im a big baby when it comes to taking cough medicine. (I throw up every time!- so nasty) Next up on my list will be a doctors visit if it doesn't get any better!

I am so excited to show you this dress! I had never heard of Lularoe until my cute neighbor Traci started selling it! When I went by to look at some of her inventory, I was so impressed with all the different prints and styles she had. As soon as I tried on the Amelia dress, I was sold! It is such a flattering fit and I loved the simple black and white stripes. (You can never have enough stripes!) This dress is also so versatile. I decided I would show you three ways that I have already worn it! (I've only had it a few weeks!) Follow along with Traci on her Facebook page here! She has lots of shopping parties and the best part you can do it from the comfort of your pajamas and bed! :)

Have a fabulous weekend!
P.S. I have a fun giveaway coming your way next week!

Fourth of July Looks

Me: Dress (T.J. Max) Shoes: Nordstrom Rack
Mav: Romper: Gap, Shoes: Nordstroms 

Hi everyone!! Thanks for stopping by our little space on the internet! Today we are showing you some outfit inspiration for the 4th of july! Being a mom of this busy little guy, a maxi dress is always a good idea. Not only is it perfect for summer and being in the hot weather, I don't feel like I am flashing anyone when I am chasing after him. (Trust me... he is sooooo busy.. insert wide eyed emoji)
I also love a good espadrille! They scream "summer shoe" to me and are totally mom friendly! I don't know how any of you moms out there wear heels! I have the hardest time! Tips are much appreciated!

On Mavryk, I am obsessed with rompers. I mean really, aren't they so cute on babies?? I hope I have a girl someday because that is all she will be in! Its so nice for him because he loves to run around. I haven't ever put him in jeans because he felt so uncomfortable. These are breezy and perfect for a busy toddler. He is still learning how to walk in his converse. He is so used to his Freshly Picked moccs! He still has a while to go until he will fully fit into these. They are just so cute in mini sizes! Don't you just die?

Thank you to all those who gave me feedback on my instagram post! Mavryk has had a hard transition to regular cow milk. We are going to start trying Almond Milk! I was lactose as a little girl so I should have had better ideas! When I was little we didn't really know about things like almond or coconut milk. I am so happy there are so many great options out there for him to try!

Happy Hump Day!

Fathers Day

Happy (early) Fathers day to the most amazing father! It has been so amazing to watch Zack become a dad. He is so sweet and caring. He is obsessed with Mavryk! They are like two peas in a pod. Mavryk loves when Zack comes home from work. As soon as Zack walks in the door, Mavryk is right there to greet him with a huge smile and a big, mouth open kiss. I love watching them learn and grow together. Zack already teaches him all about the things that he loves to do. 

Zack works so hard for us. He supports us, loves us, listens, and devotes everything he has. He is the most amazing husband. I appreciate everything that he does. Just a day a year isn't enough to celebrate him. Mav and I can't wait to give him our present!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A year to remember

Cake: My Mom! (she made my wedding cake to!)

On Saturday June 4th we finally had Mav's first birthday party! I was so excited that my family was in town from Arizona and here to celebrate Mavryk. We even had the party at my grandparents house which was once my child hood home! Lots of happy feelings over here :) Lets start with the morning of.. I put some things off which was bad but it was a busy week! I had my last training for next years school year as well as my grandpas retirement party. I also made the mistake of not ordering balloons ahead of time.. and all I wanted was balloons! So back to morning of the party. We woke up, showered, and got ready to leave. The party was starting at 11:30 so we left at 9:30 to run errands thinking we would have all the time to get done what we needed. I stopped at Zurchers to get balloons and it was an hour wait to get them filled with helium :( I was literally in tears! I didn't have time to have the balloons filled. We ended up running to Walmart for some last min food pick ups and I was able to get some balloons there. I don't know why I was so stressed about everything. In the end it was all about the people who came and the time we were able to spend together celebrating Mavryk! It ended up being so amazing and relaxing. By the time the party was over Mavryk was ready for a nap! A huge thank you to Romina who was amazing and captured these moments for me!
