Poncho || Mens Gift Idea

I shared this in my Instagram Stories the other day, but one company I've come to know about this year is PONCHO! I know men can be tricky to shop for sometimes--whether it be birthdays or holidays, especially when you want a meaningful AND functional gift! My cute brother is obsesssssed with fishing and outdoorsy stuff like it, so I knew this would be perfect for him for Christmas! {Although, of course it would be a good one year-round! Haha.}
The guys there were SO nice and offered us a coupon code that will get you a free hat at checkout! USE "DAINTYPEAR," and be sure to add the hat, along with the shirt(s) to your cart.:)
Just a few things that make these awesome:
"
1. Poncho fits better. Other fishing shirts are ridiculously baggy on normal size guys. Poncho is the only fishing shirt in the world made in slim and regular fits.
2. Poncho has a nice, clean, modern look. Other fishing shirts are covered with a silly number of cargo pockets that just aren't needed.
3. It has so many cool design details - magnetic snap pockets that open and close with one hand, a zipper pocket big enough to hold a fly box or the largest iPhone, a reinforced collar that stands up to block the sun, UPF 50 protection that won't wash out, and a luxury fabric that feels like cotton but dries fast.
4. We built this shirt for people who spend time outdoors and on the water. Clay (the founder) is an ex-Alaskan fly fishing guide, so he knows what anglers need and rid of the things they don't!"

Be on the lookout for more gift ideas in other posts!<3

Experience Jane

It's no secret over here that I love shopping on Jane! I've been talking about them for years, but as we roll into the holidays, I wanted to share about how you can experience Jane this season! Last year, I probably bought 50% of gifts {for myself and others, haha!} on Jane, which made things so convenient. {It also couuuuld have been because I was up nursing an adorable baby forty million times per night nursing, but mainly because it was convenient. Hahah!} I liked that everything felt thought out and planned way ahead of time, and all I had to do was wrap it! Easy peasy for this Mama! Over the years, the app has become easier to navigate, and so user-friendly! {I've been shopping through them since before they had an app, so I feel like I can speak on this subject! ;)}
The search feature is also one of my favorite things that they have added, so when I'm looking for something as specific as a "Hallmark Christmas Sweater," if there is a deal close to the description, it comes right up! Or, if I just want to peruse about the shoes or jeans {some of my favorites,} I just type in "shoes" or "jeans!" The deals change daily, so when you see something, snatch it! I talk about this shop so much, that I thought it might be helpful to go a little bit more in-depth about it! Also! Last year as the holidays approached, they had deals that said "Christmas delivery!" Also, if I have ever had a question or issue with my order, a Jane staff member has been so friendly and quick to reply and connect me with the seller! SO, if you are looking for a gift that must be there by then, keep an eye out for those! They also have some that will say "Free shipping" on a banner in the listing picture, which is always nice, too! 
Happy Jane shopping!

Motherhood Mysteries and Accomplishments

Their ability to go to bed at any time of night and still wake up at the exact same time the next day, is one of Motherhood’s greatest mysteries.๐Ÿง Having 5 kids {or any amount of kids} dressed, fed, and in the car before 7:30 AM for school drop off is one of Motherhood’s greatest accomplishments.๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ Happy Tuesday!๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

#thedaintypear #tdpmotherhood#mymamahood

Choosing our Motherhood

One of the things I love most about Motherhood is the ability to take our own experiences, good or difficult, and use them to decide how we will raise and love our own children. Even though the stewardship we have over our homes, jobs, homework, activities, and all the other responsibilities of “adulting” can feel like a large weight to bear at times... I can’t help but to think about when I dreamt of this, prayed for this, and longed for the day I could have the sacred responsibility of shaping and loving little humans.๐Ÿ’• “She was one of the kind that likes to grow up. In the end she grew up of her own free will a day quicker than the other girls.

Hi, I'm Awkward || #tdpyoutube

Hi, I'm awkward. Anyone else? No? Just me? Okay. Hahaha.

Today, on #tdpyoutube, we're chatting all about those embarrassing, awkward moments that I SWEAR are sometimes brought on by Mom Brain! At least that's what I'll tell myself. ;)

I'd love to hear yours as well! Let me know on my video or on Instagram! ALSO, General Conference is this weekend! You definitely don't have to be a member of my faith to get something amazing out of it, and I would feel like I was missing out if I didn't tell you how it makes me feel. Watching and listening for things that I feel God wants me to learn makes me feel satisfied, joyful, and gives me and my family an overall feeling of peace. {Even amidst the sweet crazy babies jumping around and eating snacks throughout!} We could all use a little bit more of that nowadays...right? Feel free to join us by watching HERE!

Whole 30 Prep

Oregon Coast: TDP Traveling

WOW! Happy Summer! This right here is a testament to the power of spontaneity! We can't always get up and just leave everything, but we had a window of time where we could and we took it! We decided to do a Utah road trip {yes, you read correctly..."Yoo-tah ROHD-TRIP verb. The act of trapping  5 humans ages 6 and under in a car and driving 20 plus hours to the beehive state!" Hahaha.
I'm so grateful for these memories that we almost didn't make because it would have probably been easier to stay home...Yep, for sure staying home watching "The Greatest Showman" on repeat would have been easier than climbing to the back of the car to clean up car sickness puke! And, in actuality, I've become sort of a homebody in recent years! My anxiety goes through the roof when I think about leaving town, BUT, seeing these gorgeous mountains and family and friends has been just the cure for my homesick heart.:)

We didn't only stay in Utah, though, we ventured up to the Northwest, which is where Tom is from! We sailed the Columbia river, hiked to waterfalls, visited the coast and the Tillamook Cheese Factory... we visited his grandparents and interviewed them for family history! I love visiting the Oregon towns that raised him.


In Utah, we went paddle boarding {for my first time ever,} rode bikes through beautiful mountain towns, played with friends and cousins, ate at some of our favorite restaurants, and celebrated my sweet grandma's 85th birthday! We had picnics in the mountains, shot fireworks for America's birthday, and stayed up until the middle of the night chatting with dear friends!

It's been fairly simple, but it's been full of incredibly rich and beautiful memories that we think our kids will remember for a long time, and will hopefully want to do again!:)
What did you do this summer!?

Postpartum Workout

For me, getting the motivation to get to the gym after baby 5 has been rough. Okay, let's be honest, after every baby. Haha! I have the desire to have the desire, if that makes sense, but the energy to actually do it hasn't been there. But, my 10 month old slept through the night for the first real time a few weeks ago {yes, 10 month old. Hahaha. But she's our baby right now and I wasn't pushing the issue because I was soaking up all the nighttime cuddles and feedings. BUT, I was admittedly exhausted. And my toddlers don't sleep much better, so we're kind of used to it!:) Haha!} and it seemed like a good time to start doing things slowly. I went in and got on a bike and it actually felt good. So, cheers to all you Mamas trying to make healthy choices! It's so not easy, {like I've literally had my weight times 10 in ice cream since we've moved.} but you're not alone in it!:)

The Incredibles 2

We took our kids to see The Incredibles 2 for opening day today! We couldn’t get a family picture at the theater, since after the movie, one baby at a time was slowly breaking down while another dragged herself on the theater floor and licked the carpet. The usual. Hahaha. So here is one from the year before this past Halloween! It was so much fun, and so sweet to see our little crew lined up in their seats! I don’t want to spoil anything but the little Pixar Short that played before the movie, "Bao," had me all teary! Did anyone else see it today?!

My review from a "Mama Perspective:"

Some parts of the movie did get pretty intense! I'm usually really sensitive to movies, and we don't go to them often. The most recent one we went to was "The Greatest Showman," and we took the kids after I had screened it once. Even though there were some parts in the "Incredibles 2" that I would consider a little scary, my kids did great and didn't mention it afterwards! I would definitely take that into consideration, though, for littles or kids who are prone to scary dreams! There were also two minor language bombs that I felt were unnecessary for a Disney/Pixar movie and wished those weren't there. Overall, it was a fun sequel with lots of action! I'd love to hear what you thought of the movie or the short!

PMD Review

My review of the @pmdbeauty personal microderm tool is up on #tdpyoutube!๐Ÿ {Also, don’t mind that the video is uncomfortably close to my face... I didn’t want it to become a “hide yo kids, hide yo wife, and hide yo husband” situation when I noticed the girls up front decided to make an uninvited appearance. So I spent nap time cropping them out! #nursingprobs.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚} Happy Wednesday!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜

Cotton Dresses

I know, I talk about the Texas heat probably way too much {and I'm told it isn't even hot yet! Hahaha!} I'm definitely not talking about it in a complaining way, but more like an "I'd better figure out my summer clothing game STAT, because all of my wardrobe is based around Utah weather." Sooo...basically opposite of here!:) Haha!

Here are some AWESOME dresses I found on Jane! They are $14.99 plus shipping, and I obviously bought a few colors. *Insert monkey covering its mouth emoji here.* I was feeling a little bit panicked that I would begin taking after our 2-year-old and start stripping during church when it gets toasty, so I'd say this purchase saved my family from an embarrassing situation.;)

Also, fresh locks by @katietellorhair at @abstraktstudio!๐ŸŽ‰ Loved loved getting to meet her, and everyone I got to chat with at the salon was so kind and sweet, too. She did some lowlights, a smudged root, and some sort of reverse-balayage magic that I don’t understand, but really liked! Thanks, Katie!
