hi, i'm jess!

I'm a work-at-home mama, an Air Force wife, a woman consumed with wanderlust, a foodie who loves cooking up something scrumptious, and a morning person driven by that first cup of coffee. I'm so happy you're here! Learn More
  • Oh Mickey, you so fine 🎶 We’re ready for day two at @disneyland!
.
Bringing three kids under 6 is no joke, and there were definitely some tears yesterday (check out my stories). Hoping for more smiles today.
.
Heading to California Adventures today and back to Disneyland tomorrow...tell me your favorite places to eat and what to get there!

  • “Haley, I love you. Will you be my best friend in my whole life?”
.
Awwww 🥰 Is there anything sweeter than those first friendships?!
.
Also, can we talk about that unicorn 🦄 and how it’s basically a million times better than anything I could ever dream about drawing.

  • This is four 🎉
.
It was a totally low-key birthday (the birthday girl has been under the weather), but it was also perfect.
.
One plus side to her not feeling well all week? She and I have had some nice one-on-one time, and she’s been extra super snuggly. I’m totally ready to have my normal #maddieroo back, though. #thisisfour
  • If you had to pick an ingredient to represent where you’ve lived, what would you pick and why?
.
Over the weekend I was honored to check out the @barnesandnoble #MyCookieStory awards ceremony featuring #milspouse Jessica McGehee and her winning “Taste of Home” cookie, a delicious bar cookie that pays homage to all the places she’s lived.
.
Not only did she get 💰$5,000 for winning 😲, but her scrumptious cookie 🍪 will be in a #barnesandnoble cafe near you later this year.
.
Check out today’s post (link in bio 👆) to read more about her and her awesome story!

  • I knew he was being a little too quiet in the other room 🤣. Graham crackers all over the coffee table and floor 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
It’s totally a stay-in-pajamas kind of day over here...and I’m loving it. Also loving that I can just vacuum up his mess #storyofmylife

  • Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? We do! I busted out our little stash of pink and red to spread some L❤️VE!
.
See those heart “puppets”? It was a Pinterest project that stressed me the heck out over the weekend. I thought my almost four year old could handle glue. I was so wrong 🤦🏻‍♀️
.
I’m so bad when it comes to doing crafts with them, but I’m working on my patience, because they love it, and the end result is (sometimes) fun.

  • The kids played out in the rain yesterday and came back inside “freezing 🥶” and soaked, so I plopped them in a nice warm bath to warm up.
.
(By the way...”freezing” means that it’s in the 50s here 🙈. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve adjusted to this #socal life.)
.
Hope everyone is staying warm out there!

  • 💕How stinkin’ cute are these heart brownies?!
.
Do you like brownies plain, filled with peanut butter or a cookie, or topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or frosting?
.
Check out how to make these sweet little brownies on the blog (link in bio)!

  • 🍪 Drop your favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor below! I’m personally alllllllll about Samoas or Trefoil, but these S’mores?? GAME CHANGER 🙌 (That’s #maddieroo giving a 👍 in the third picture)
.
Also, how do you pick who to buy from? Do you get them from a booth outside a store? From friends to help out their kid—what if you know tons of people selling? Or hope a sweet scout will knock on your door? (Which is precisely how these found it’s way into our house yesterday!)
.
🍪 And no, we’re not selling them...no Girl Scouts in our house yet. Maybe next year!
