IT AIN’T EASY BEING A ‘BLOGGER’

AshRiver_Jan_Look2-13

Today- I bring you my first fashion post! Going into this “blogging thing” I thought to myself, how hard could this actually be? The answer is, freaking hard. I have a new-found appreciation for all the bloggers out there who make this look easy. I spent half the time frantically attempting to dress myself and my offspring in my Mini Cooper, the other half was dedicated to running after him in full sprint. Many ask, how do you find time to work out? The truth is, I don’t! I have no doubt that running after an 18-month old is more than enough cardio to meet my 30 minutes a day requirement. I laugh so hard looking at these pictures because my crew (photog and baby wrangler) and I literally just ran around for 2 hours chasing River. Many thanks goes out to my photographer, Yesi, and baby wrangler/ bff, Andrea, who both have more patience than most.

SUPER BOWL RECIPE

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Here is a simple recipe for you to make that will make you the hit of the party! What I love about this recipe is you can use the leftover shredded beef for tacos, nachos, etc. You can get creative. Also- think outside of the box! If you don’t eat red meat, chicken is just as easy. 🙂

BEACH PHOTOS

These were just too good not to post. This has got to be one of my favorite photo sessions to date! Growing up my parents didn’t really take that many pictures of my sister and I, looking back we wish we had more moments that were documented. This is a huge thing for me and why I personally feel it’s important in my family now to capture River growing up. Enjoy!

SBE just opened another Hyde in Mammoth California. A few of us went up there last weekend to help out with the opening. It was the most snow I had ever been in, in my entire life. For all of you that are here on the West Coast you can remember how much it was raining here. Well all that rain was snow up in Mammoth and we got stuck the day we were supposed to come home. So the day we were stuck we turned lemons into lemonade and had a huge party… because that’s what we do best! For the uniforms I designed these awesome fur boot covers…the fashion in Mammoth is nonexistent so you can imagine the looks some of us got wearing brown faux fur boot covers….. but they are hot!
