October Favorites

Wow! October came and went so fast but we’re getting into my favorite time of year! And even though we only traveled to Disneyland this month, it feels like we were gone all month long.



One of the things Layla and I treat ourselves to when we travel for business is Disneyland. Sneaking in a few hours of ride time is one of our favorite things to do but this year we decided to take our families to Disney for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party – SO MUCH FUN!

And I didn’t have to spend much on costumes! The great thing about living in Utah is that there are so many families that are my same size and I was able to borrow most of these adorable Alice In Wonderland costumes from someone on Instagram! So rad huh?!  I plan to do a full blog post on this Disneyland trip covering where to stay, what to eat, and how to save money!


LDS General Conference was also this month. It’s where the leaders of our church speak to all members about updates, plans for new temples, and it’s a time for us to reflect on our faith. We drag that mattress with us every time we travel because it’s super durable (I’ve never had to patch a hole), it has a lip so your kid never rolls off, and it blows up in less than a minute!



It was this girl’s birthday this month and I’m one more year away from having a teenager! Can you believe it? Gosh, when did all this happen?

Braun read the list Emery had put together for her birthday and read ‘honey comb’. Being the awesome dad he is, he went to the store and bought like 10 boxes of Honey Comb cereal…he failed to see that Emery had written ‘fresh’ honeycomb – her face was priceless! But Braun, being the super dad he is, went out and got her some FRESH honeycomb – this girl was in heaven!




I’m so thankful for this family of mine. As we grow and get older, it’s so fun to see their personalities develop and become even more defined. And as we move into the next holiday months, I promise to keep up on links for you! This month was a little nuts as retailers were giving awesome prices on some of my favorite things and you guys keep asking for the links so I’ve put them all in one place!

From the flat iron that I can’t live without to the $6 sports bras that have sold out and been restocked like 3 times over, I’ve rounded them all up and put them below!

Hope your October was as fun as mine!

Sports Bras
My friend introduced me to these sports bras, and I had to try them out! They're super inexpensive, but are super supportive. They really are awesome!

Flat Iron
If I can find a tool that works great and serves multiple purposes, I'm instantly sold. I've used this flat iron for years, and it really is the best. I used it to curl my hair, and the smooth outer part of it smoothes as you curl your hair with it, so you'll never have those funny frizzles after you curl.

Boy's Sweater
I found these cute Halloween themed sweaters for my boys, and they loved them! I loved little things like this that make it feel like a holiday. They also have really cute striped ones, and the cutest Christmas one!

Natural Deodorant
If you've thought about switching to a natural deodorant, but you've been on the fence about it, try it! This one is awesome, and is made with coconut oil. You'll go through a bit of a detox period, but after that I promise you'll love it!!

Car Organizer
I don't know about you, but the glove box in my car is just a catch all for all kinds of random stuff that I know I'll need at some point. I found this photo keeper that fits in there perfectly, and I have things organized in each little box that I can easily just pull right out when I need something!

Snakeskin mules
Steve Madden
These mules have been my go to shoes for summer and fall! They go with everything, are so easy to throw on, and instantly make your outfit look fancier! They're also 40% off, so how could you not!?

Kid's Travel Air Mattress
We've gotten soo much use out of this kid's travel air mattress! We use it for sleepovers, travel, and sick kids on the floor of our bedroom. It fits in a suitcase and is super easy to pack up and inflate for bedtime. My 3 year old up to my 12 year old all use it.

Continuous Spray Bottles
I never knew that I could love a spray bottle as much as I love these! They make doing kid's hair so much easier with the continuous mist.
Shop Now
Square Up!
This is our favorite road trip game! It's super fun for kids and adults, and you don't have to be sitting right next to each other to play it.
Shop Now
Cozy Headphones
I'm loving these headphones right now! They lay flat against kid's heads which makes them great for travel, and they come in tons of colors and different animals.

Rose Gold Temporary Hair Tint
Kristin Ess
I decided to do something fun and tint my hair pink! It was totally noncommittal because this completely fades out in 2-3 washes. I loved that it wasn't a crazy bright pink, but it was still so fun to have pink hair for a couple weeks.
Shop Now
Tula Skincare
I've finally found a really great skincare system that has completely changed my skin! This kit is great for all skin types.
Shop Now
Transport Tote
This has to be one of my most used bags. It's the perfect size to carry a laptop along with everything else you need, or would be great as a diaper bag! It's also entirely made out of leather, so it just gets better and better the more you use it.
Shop Now
Rain/Snow Boots
These are my favorite rain & snow boots. They look great with jeans, and go with everything! They're also SO warm and comfy!
Shop Now
Area Rug
Project 62
Target has some super cute area rugs right now! I have this one in my entry way. I love that I don't have to worry too much about it getting dirty because it was super inexpensive, and it hides dirt really well! And those fringed ends... so cute!
