Mom Crush Monday: My Lovely Ohana

Boy was I dreaming about that island life when I fell upon this mama and her adorable little one! Her Instagram is splattered with thoughts of love and sunshine. This cold weather has me wanting to jump on the first flight out of here. Next blog post brought to you from the beautiful islands of Hawaii? Hmm.. lovely thought but not as lovely as learning about Summer and her beautiful family! 

Tell me about yourself & your blog...

I’m a 24 year old military brat turned military wife, mommin’ it up on the beautiful island of Oahu.  In my free time, you’ll find me sippin’ on coffee (or wine!), dippin’ in the ocean, or hanging’ with my girl gang.  On my blog, you'll find a lot of “new mom- gone wrong” experiences, tips inspired by passion, and a million pictures of my beautiful daughter Teigen.

Your favorite blog post...

My favorite blog post so far has been a piece I wrote for called "Five mom expressions I finally understand".

"It's my favorite because it's totally relatable for new moms!

What is the most challenging part of motherhood?

It's really challenging trying to keep your little one from every single danger day to day. And even more, realizing that they are going to fall down, bump their heads, or get bit by the dog a time or two. As mama bears we are extremely protective of our cubs and never want to see them hurt!!

What is the best piece of parenting/mothering advice you have received?

The best advice I've received has been from my oh so brilliant mother, "Don't sweat the small stuff!".

"As mama bears we are extremely protective of our cubs and never want to see them hurt!!"

Funniest thing your kid(s) have ever done?

Teigen is a hilarious kid (she gets it from her mom of course). She has me cracking up all the time with her HUGE baby farts, crazy tongue that likes to lick literally everything, and super awesome dance moves. Just the other day she got a dolphin puppet book from her aunty. The second I put my finger in that puppet, she started laughing non stop! It's those kind of moments that really get me.

Top 3 mom must haves:

I could NOT live without my Infant Optics Video baby monitor to watch my snoozing babe from anywhere. I'm totally in love with my Baby Trend jogger, it's the perfect size and so fun to push T around in! And the Fawn Design diaper bag is my absolute favorite bag to take everywhere!!

"I strive to get a workout in at least 5 days a week. Its a great way for me to get out some stress and keep my body healthy!"
