We took our first family trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico a few weeks ago and I learned so much about what and how to pack the essentials for a fun, convenient experience. I thought we'd be bringing a circus of things, but we were able to take off with 2 suitcases between the 3 of us, a stroller and car seat.  I've also teamed up with my good friend Linzey @thefamilyfuntour to share some thoughts on what and how to pack for baby's first trip! Take a look at my top 10 things to pack and top 4 things to buy/use while you are on your vacation. Then go and check out Linzey's post on HOW to pack it all in as little space as possible!

Also, before you start reading, I have an ANNOUNCEMENT! I just was asked to join as an influencer. is an app that you can use to screenshot instagram pictures, and/or to scroll through for inspiration. When you screenshot a picture, or see a picture on the app, you can click on it and it will give you all of the links to buy everything...

Adelaide is finally 5 months old and life with her is getting to be more and more fun! She's still sleeping through the night, sitting up, and taking fewer and longer naps during the day. Her longer naps and ability to be entertained by toys (see my post about things that keep her smiling) means that we are able to do more as a family, a be a bit more productive, too .

We're still working on the Whole30 (more like being Whole30-ish), and while we have more time to make dinners, we have started to really get into a groove of working out daily and moving away from long days of meal prep to quicker, faster meals with left overs. Our solution to more time together, less time cooking and weighing less is simple: sheet pan suppers!! 

My favorite recipes are below. I hope they are helpful! I heard a lot of feedback from folks about worrying that meal prep takes too much time. I've found this to be the best way to meal prep AND have more time back - be it to play wit...
