Fall is just around the corner and although we’re still experiencing some pretty hot weather over in our neck of the woods, we somehow managed to get a couple of days this week that were much cooler than normal. For those days, I love mixing summer and fall pieces together.

Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015I’m really digging this high neck LBD which is also perfect for fall with leggings and these suede ankle booties with fringe I scored for only $24.99! I paired this fall/summer look with a floppy hat and my favorite crossover handbag from Steve Madden.

Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015I started getting them on my cheeks and nose when I got pregnant with our first and it’s definitely getting worse with baby #2. It’s so tough to cover up with makeup without it looking like I have accidental blotches of mascara but looks like I’m not alone on this. According to an article written by What To Expect, “this condition affects 50 to 75 percent of expectant mothers.” I know it’s all part of being pregnant and the hyperpigmentation is something that can eventually be corrected so for the time being, I’m learning to embrace these motherhood love spots. At the end of the day, there are more meaning moments that will come from them and I’m honestly thankful and blessed to be able to have these little loves of mine.Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015

  • […] if you follow me, you might have noticed I bought these booties in black a few weeks back (click here to see blog post). I figured if they’re comfortable enough to wear during my pregnancy, I might as well get […]

This is hands down such a life-saver for us busy moms that are looking for healthier delicious options without leaving the comfort of our homes and having to pack the kids up just to grab a quick bite to eat. #sponsored #mypanera #PaneraDelivers #panera #momsonthego #busymom
  • 🍭Oh Lexi, you’re so full of sweetness and sass. Wondering if it’s true what they say...The youngest will surely give you more gray hairs. 🤣🙈 .

And if you have a winter baby, I’ve got a cute birthday idea for you on our blog. Check out how we celebrated Lexi’s 2nd bday. Link in bio. ❄️🎂 📸 @lilyro_ 😍 #terrifictwos #winter #birthdaygirl
  • Mom life is definitely not easy but seeing my kids eyes light up when they learn something new or see something magical🌈, that right there makes it all worth it. 💕#makeeverydaymagical #magicofchildhood #momofgirls

And if you’re kiddos are animal lovers too, check out our San Diego Zoo stories before they expire. Hint: Cutest bears we ever did see☺️
  • Con mis amores en el zoológico. 💕 At the zoo with my little loves. 👧🏻👧🏼 🐼 🐒 🦁 .

Someone recently asked me how on Earth I go  to places like the zoo or Disneyland with these two alone. The truth is, it’s not easy. Yes, sometimes my husband or my mom come along but they’re not always able to. So what’s my secret? .
.
I pushed myself to do it once. I thought, if it’s a total fail oh well, at least I gave it a shot. And well, I’m here to report, I survived, they survived and we have tons of good memories (I don’t think they’ll remember the tantrums🤪) to look back at from it. *Tip: Buy a Zoo membership or theme park annual pass or Groupon. Go early in the am when there’s less crowds. Stay for a few hours and leave before it gets too crowded. And bring lots of snacks. 🤣You got this mama!! 💪☺️ #sandiegozoo #twinningtuesday #momofgirls #motheroverloadhair
  • Most of you know my oldest is severely allergic to eggs. For that reason, date nights with the Mr. tend to turn into brunch dates. Which is why we were so excited to get invited to the opening of @toasttemecula 😋

Loving all their delicious menu options from chilaquiles verdes & micheladas, adorable pancakes w/ berries & kiwi for the kiddos to healthier colorful options like their avocado toast w/ egg🥑 and vanilla ice ice charcoal matcha. 🍵 Oh and did I mention they even have gluten-free options and play 90s music? 📻 🙌🏼😍

That mom guilt is real yo! Some days are harder than others, right? But we got this mamas. 💪 Trying my best to carve out quality time with my girls and really being present. It’s my goal moving forward not just this new year but FOREVER. Joting down girl dates, hubby dates and family dates on my calendar and making them a top priority. And that includes putting the phone down. 😜

What are you focusing on this year or trying to change for the better? #momguilt #bepresent #dailyparenting 📸 @lilyro_ 😍💕😘

  • Zoom in!!! 🤣😂🤣

Throwing it back to a couple months ago when I went solo for the first time with these two little loves 🤪...This pouty face happened when a cast member volunteered to take the pic for me & Pluto graciously photo bombed it. 😂Oh Hi Pluto!👋
