Family Fun: San Francisco Zoo Visit

Earlier this summer we took a trip to the San Francisco Zoo. We got there a little later in the afternoon which was really nice because there were no crowds. Lily wasn’t the only one who had fun, we all loved it! The only disappointment was no elephants, boo. She loved watching the penguins get fed 🙂 Watching some cute little monkeys swing around. This was super cool, we got to see the grizzlies eat! They both went and stood at…

How to Distress Jeans

There are so many kids clothing shops I follow on Instagram and I could literally spend all our money dressing Lily :/ It’s a problem. I have really been wanting to get Lily some jeans from this awesome online shop but I have not been able to bring myself to pay $30.00 for jeans with holes in them that she will outgrow super fast. I thought it can’t be that hard to add the holes myself. So I headed over…
