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
  • 🌴 What’s your FAVORITE thing about where you live?
.
[partner] 🚌 Yesterday the five of us hopped aboard @ridethehopperbus and experienced #SanDiego like a tourist, and since kids ride FREE in September and October, you can check out this gorgeous city, too...even if you’re a local!
.
They seriously thought of everything when you #RideTheHopper: Free drinks, snacks for everyone on board, and even activities like “I Spy” for the kids 🙌
.
Plus, the Hopper Plus ticket includes TWO days on the hop on/hop off bus 🚌, and discounts and FREE admission to all sorts of places (@petcoparkevents tours, @ussmidwaymuseum, a 1-hour @hornblowercruises and a Coronado ferry, entrance to @sdmaritime, and a carousel ride at @seaport_village)! It also starts and stops in Old Town, so you seriously get to see the best of San Diego!

  • Feeling thankful we call this place home, and for mouthwatering 🍟 and 🐓 (swipe for what I’m talkin’ about).
.
Not many in the Air Force have the chance to be stationed in San Diego, so we’re soaking it up while it lasts.
.
Last night we relaxed for a mid-week date night, and enjoyed one of our favorites, @getcrackshacked, for dinner (and now I’m craving it again).
.
It was nice to just hang out at the beach with just my husband and without the kids. I love them dearly, and love watching them run and play, but whew...it’s hard keeping eyes on all three of them near the water.

  • 🍋 When life gives you lemons...have a lemonade stand! 🍋 (Or cheat and get your lemonade premade from Costco 🤷🏻‍♀️)
.
The girls have been BEGGING for a lemonade stand alllllllll summer ☀️, so we finally had one this weekend, and now I’m wishing we didn’t wait so long, because it was so much fun.
.
💻 Check out the blog (courtesy of my husband!) to see more about it, and how to make your own lemonade stand!

  • Date night with my two fellas yesterday. From pushing his own cart the other day to being strapped in while we stroll through @worldmarket—we’re soaking up what’s left of his little baby days, since they’re few and far between. 😭 Why do they grow up so fast?!

  • I know grocery delivery is all the rage, but does anyone else actually like strolling 🛒 the aisles to shop? 🙋🏻‍♀️
.
👶🏻👧🏼👩🏼Shopping with three kids (or two, or even one), can definitely be stressful, but I love getting out of the house and checking things off my list, and I feel like they’re learning, too. I want them to know how to shop for things when they grow up; here’s so much to learn by going to the store. .
Since the oldest was at school today I let the little one try out the baby cart, and, of course, he loved it! Here’s hoping I can still convince him to sit in the big cart 🤪 since it’s a lost cause with the middle one at his point. .

  • My dad used to HATE it when we used the word “sweat.” People don’t sweat, Jessica,” he’d say, “People perspire.” Well, not to rain on his parade or anything, but I sweat...a lot.
.

Thankfully I’ve found a group of mamas I can sweat and workout with, because otherwise I can’t think of when I’d be able to get an actual work out in…because #momlife with three little ones is CRAZY.
.

I’m thankful I found @fit_4_mom, and I’m super thankful for my #MomDreamBox from @momsonmaternity so I can keep my “perspire” dripping down my head covered with this awesome @tinytruckerco hat. .

  • My boys. I kinda like them...a lot. ❤️
