HOW TO SURVIVE ROAD TRIPS WITH YOUR TODDLER

After we had Naiya, we went from seeing our families a few times a year to so many times a year, it’s become increasingly difficult to keep track!  All of this extra family time has really upped our travel game recently–especially since Phil and I are both east coast transplants and we want to make sure we are able to visit everyone.  This weekend, we took a road trip from LA to Phoenix and back to see Phil’s family for a total of almost 6 hours each way.  In prepping for the trip, while I initially couldn’t help but picture a baby crying fest and anxiety overload, we lived to tell the tale! Today, I’m rounding up our favorites tips in case you have family road trips with your baby or toddler planned in the near future too. I should add that many of these tips were recommendations I received from readers on Instagram! A big thank you to those who helped us out–you guys are lifesavers!

Excited to share a lace dress with you today you need to know about because it’s a perfect transitional piece, it’s affordable and uber-versatile.

TGIF! The work week has been so non-stop, I couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming weekend. Weekends are always so hectic in our house–especially since Naiya came into our lives.  All week, I dream of accomplishing so many things and I’m constantly making “to do” lists.  Then, when the weekend finally hits, I’m rarely able to get through even half of my list because…#momlife.
