Trendy Diaper Bags | Ju-Ju-Be Black Matrix Starlet

What's cookin' good lookin'? Yep, I'm talking to you, gorgeous new Ju-Ju-Be diaper bag. I know I say it just about every month because I fall in love with pretty much every single trendy diaper bag print that Ju-Ju-Be releases but this past release may just take the cake. I'm seriously considering snagging a Black Matrix Be Nurtured and a Black Matrix BFF because I've got all of the heart eyes for this print.

And just wait until you see the lining -- heart eyes galore!

OOTD | Knit Sweaters + Baby T-Shirt Dresses

I know I said I was going to do our super cute kids clothes and trendy mom fashion OOTD features on Fridays but I feel like Thursdays may be a better day. I don't know about you, but on Friday evenings I just want to sit back, relax and hang out with my family and I'm guessing that many of you feel the same. In which case, shopping for new clothes on Friday evenings is probably the last thing you want to be doing.

Am I right? Wrong? Totally wrong? Don't care either way? Let me know what you think!

Anyhow, we're gonna give it a try today and see how it goes.

Today was sunny but windy so in the shade, cute sweaters were a must. For once, I got to wear them for warmth and not just because I love cute knit sweaters. And I'm totally fine with that since we've had maybe 4 days this winter season where I could comfortably wear all of my favorite sweaters. So it totally felt amazing, to say the least.

For today's OOTD, featuring some pretty cute baby clothes in addition to my trendy mom fashion, I paired this super cute loose burnt orange knit sweater with my favorite new pair of light wash skinny ripped jeans and some suede black zipper booties that I absolutely adore. Ava's super cute toddler outfit was pretty simple but oh-so-darling -- a camel-colored ruffle kids t-shirt dress, black baby boots and the cutest ever white lace baby bow.

Our Love Story

It's funny because whenever we're on a shoot with Briana, I joke about Oliver and Ava getting married one day. They're the cutest ever, we know we'd love the in laws and of course, I would know that my daughter's husband was raised in a loving family who has taught him values we respect and wish for in our daughter's future husband.

While you hear those stories every once in a while of childhood kids growing up, re-connecting and getting married, of course it's slim but it sure would be funny if it actually happened. And let me tell you, we would have a lot of photos to show at their wedding.

We all know it's Valentine's Day, the day of love, and one thing I love about love is hearing how that love started. Whether a couple was friends since birth or whether they met at a bar and get married six months later, I love hearing those stories and I love telling ours.

So if you want to listen, here's the story of how we met:

I went to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and my husband played football at Cal Lutheran University in Ventura County. And it just so happens that one of my husband's best friends from high school also went to Loyola Marymount with me.

Back in 2008, he was visiting his friend at LMU and we happened to be at the same house party. I can still picture the house -- Tt was the home of some of the basketball players at our school. There was a living room area right next to the backyard which was acting as the dance floor at this particular party.

I'm standing there with some of my friends and this guy walks up to me and asks, "Want to dance?" I say yes and the rest is history.

Just kidding.

That random guy who asked me to dance (yes, those were his first words to me) was Frank, my husband, but the rest was definitely not history. We hung out the rest of the evening, he got my number, we chatted every once in a while and over the next three years, would see each other probably 1-2 times a year when he was visiting LMU and then would go about our lives and then re-connect again when he was back visiting.

Then senior year rolls around and I hadn't seen or talked to him in a while. I get a text one night saying he's at LMU and it just so happens that the party he is at is down the street from where I live. We hang out and this time, continue hanging out more and more frequently. We start visiting each other at school and then on January 14, 2011, three years after meeting him, he asks me to be his girlfriend.

On December 8, 2013 he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with a beautiful Malibu Beach Inn proposal, on our own private balcony overlooking the ocean, on June 1, 2013 we had a Portofino Hotel & Marina wedding in Redondo Beach with 170 of our closest family and friends, we welcomed our first born son, 8-week old Baxter Bane, into our family the day we got back from our honeymoon, I found out I was pregnant in June 2015 and then Miss Ava Sue made her debut on March 14, 2016.

And the rest is our history in the making :)
