bathing suits for and girls

i have a major weakness for bathing suits. my kids’ drawers are overflowing with them.  we are so excited the sun is back and need swimwear that can hold up to our constant adventures to the beach, pool, traveling and spraying each other on the trampoline with the hose (super safe and not at all white trash). we get plenty of use from our suits so it is important that they are good quality. we have found that our jcrew and billabong suits last the longest for girls while for boys we swear by rvca, volcom, billabong and oneill.

here are some of my faves this season…

my hairdresser sent me a similar picture to this hair style and insisted i do a “how to” on this look for valentines day. it might be a little dippy, but if you can’ t be dippy on Vday when can you be dippy?

1. we started by spritzing ruby’s hair with a styling spray and some texturizing spay to help hold the curl and make it slightly more boho. we used this surf spray from target.

2 & 3. we curled all of ruby’s hair with a curling iron, curling away from her face and leaving about 2 inches of the ends straight.

4 & 5.  next, make two small ponytails and secure with clear elastics. the trick to this is to get the ponytails close together. we tried this several times until we got the distance just right, i say about two inches apart should do the trick.

6. now, twist each bunch of hair until it curls up and outward, forming half a heart.

7. secure hair with three bobby pins. one right where the twist connects with the elastic. one at the arch of the heart. connect the two half hearts with an elastic and bobby pin where it forms a cute full heart. we considered adding a cute small bow here as well. in full disclosure we only had a pink clear elastic so i photoshopped it out but use a clear one and secure with a bobby pin and it will look great:)

5. spray with lots of hairspray.  we like the look of texture and beachiness to the hearts so we poked and fluffled the heart to create more texture and interest.

and just because…

ruby tuesdays…at the fair

we decided to go to the fair this week. i get real excited about fairs. farm animals, fried food and the sweetest weird guy that bops my kids on the head with the blow up bat year after year. hus was out of town doing the stuff hus does and i was left to “charge” with all the kiddos. i recruited my neice shay and my sister. i love those two ladies. they are real good.

fair time 1 fair time 2 fair time 6 fair time 7 fair time 8 fair time 10 fair time 9 fair time 4 fair time 11

there was one happy lady at the fair and her name was ruby.  (it wasn’t me because i got bit by a little someone and was pretty much a grump all day after having a long week without hus, so much for charging right?) she was pretty pumped about the rides, the animals and of course…the gems and minerals house. you know how she loves to collect a natural goodie well she couldn’t get enough of the curated collections of gems, minerals and crystals on display. myes was happy too because fairs = junk food and the kid lives to for junk food.

myes: he is really into shortie shorts, right above his knee. I have been hemming all his shorts to his specifications since the first grade and this year they are just an inch or two higher. we are loving these elastic version by shaun white for target. / socks (even though they are going all london bridges on him they are his fave and he usually has them high and proud. they are so soft and such good quality) / converse / shirt

ruby: overalls (old but we usually get a pair of long overalls like these and cut them to whatever length we like)/ tee (old, see previous post for similar) / flannel (hand me down from myes)/ socks (old but we love these high socks) / stud tutorial here: sneaks / high top red converse here / local hat

ello: like a boss tank/ shorts (camo no longer avail but this is the same cut)/ vans

after that she won a fish and we got out of there.

ruby tuesdays…mommy daughter trip

a few months back my oldest childhood friend and college roommate invited ruby and i to her home in utah to spend a few days with her and her daughter. the girls were born only six weeks apart and although they hadn’t seen each other since they were babies we knew they would hit it off real nice.

so after answering ruby’s questions like “are you saying a “basement” is like a tunnel?” we went to visit our friends. THIS is a trip you must do with you little girls. Without the distraction of her brothers and life ruby and i cruised through our trip. For the first time ever I packed for just carryon luggage…it was dreamy.

it took a moment for the girls to warm up as we toured salt lake city.
