Back to school with Skechers


We have been in our Back to school phase for about 5 weeks now! It's been so busy & crazy! For myself I am still trying to learn the balance. Both boys are in school and both parents working. 
I always love to do fun things and just because we are in school doesn't mean we do less. Haha I just figure out a way to do it all. But, this year for some reason balance is something I am struggling with. I will find my happy medium soon! 



This year I have partnered with skecher's to bring you these cute back to school Emjoi shoes!! 
 My boys are in love with them! They loved the #emojimovie SOO much that they love everything #emoji !! 😍💙🍟🍕!! They were so excited when I showed them their NEW school shoes !! Thanks to @skechers for making such FUN emoji shoes!! We headed out for a fun park date and some yummy french fries to pair with these super cool emoji shoes! These cute shoes come in all sizes. Check them out below.

Hotel Valley Ho

Girls stay cation is always a must in my books! My girlfriends and I try to do it at least once a year! 
Luckily we live somewhere where we have the most amazing resorts within 45 minutes ! So, this last weekend I grabbed a few girls friends and we had a "Girls Stay cation" at Hotel Valley Ho! It was absolutely amazing !!  


Photo credit : Hotel Valley Ho - for photo above.



Let me tell you about our fabulous stay cation at Hotel Valley Ho and you guys, I'm not being paid to say this at all !! But I want to live there! Or at least have a girls or hubby stay cation once a month. Haha a girl can wish right?! We all had such a great experience! I hope when you are reading this post you will want a little to plan a little getaway with your husband or your ladies! That all this info will help you make a decision & you have less to research and more time to just be excited about your trip!! 



SPA TIME at Valley Ho Spa

We spent our morning in the VH Spa - which was amazing, to say the least! We all received 2 spa services of our choice. It was a spa package deal. Those are the best. So when you visit i suggest a package deal or even check out groupon's site for deals on the spa. I got the body sugar scrub & the 60 min facial ! Both services were so amazing! So relaxing and refreshing!  My therapists were wonderful as well! So professional and polite. I loved them! The spa was so clean and calming! I loved it so much! I can't wait to go back! 



The Spa was so relaxing & much needed.
Loving my beautiful robe from shop pink blush for our spa visit.


BRUNCH at ZUZU  - Food & Drink 

We had the most amazing brunch at Cafe ZUZU ! ZUZU is the hotel restaurant and I would honestly dine there even if we weren't staying at the hotel! I will planing a date night asap to go back. The food was so yummy and the service was just wonderful ! Our server was amazing ! She was so happy & polite. She gave us wonderful suggestions on all menu items! We ended up with Donut bombs for an appetizer & these yummy scones. They were amazing!! Then every lady ordered some amazing meal - we had so much of a variety from red velvet waffles, biscuits & gravy, Omelets, and so much more! It was divine. We all rolled out of there with happy bellies !! I can't wait to dine there again! There were so many other items in the menu I wanted to try!! 




ACCOMMODATION'S

Next we headed to our rooms. We wanted to change for the pool and get some fun pictures in! 
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We all loved it. The decor around the hotel is perfectly styled with all bright colors! I love it. The bright flowers and the greenery around the property always gets me !! I love all of the bright flowers everywhere! It's my favorite. But really, it's so pretty !! You will love it. 

Our room, itself, was so cute! It was the perfect combination of modern+vintage. Valley Ho opened in the 50's and I love the retro look each room has! Exposed white painted brick walls, pops of orange and teal, and the comfiest beds ever! Let's be honest, these mama's came to sleep alone in those comfy beds hahah. 
Our room had a cute little patio that lead out to the pool and It had a cute lounger to relax on. More than anything, it was CLEAN & kept up with so nicely. We felt so relaxed!! 




Pool side & drinks 

There are 2 pools at Hotel Valley Ho. One is the main pool & the other is a quiet pool. We went to the main pool. Where we had a pool cabana. It was so nice to have our own little space and enjoy some fun drinks! We were able to chat, take some photos and just relax! That Sunday there happen to be a pool party. So they had some good jams and we all loved it. Everyone got a good tan and got some good r & r in. 







All of the ladies enjoying the pool ! 



I love all of the bright color around this beautiful hotel! It makes for super fun pictures! 


All in all our experience at Hotel Valley Ho was amazing! Everything was perfect and we had some great R & R! Which was much needed. It was definitely so fun to go with girlfriends. We will definitely be back soon!

Bath Time


My boys love Bath time. It's one of their favorite times of the day. We do bath time every night & showers in the AM !! They get to relax and play with their favorite bath time toys! I love it too. They get to play and enjoy each other on a calmer level. They get to play with their favorite toys, they get to wash up and get smelling all nice.



As of lately Noah's favorite bath time toy has been these cute little cups from NUBY. They are all sizes & you can place them in each other. They are all different colors too. So we practice colors at the same time. Its perfect! Reggie is loving this cute little Splash n Catch net toy that you catch toys in. Its so fun. Its like a little bath fishing set. Another favorite are these cute little Bath squirt toys. These are prefect for all ages.

Summer Time with NUBY


This summer we have been trying out some new fun Nuby Products! We are loving them and are so excited to share them with you all!

Triple-digit temperatures are here to stay in Arizona at least until the beginning of October. Did you know there are tons of deaths in children & toddlers during the summer here in AZ because of the heat and from children being dehydrated! It so crazy and sad. One main thing you can do for your kiddos is to keep them hydrated. Phoenix Children’s recommends kids drink 16 ounces of water every 4-6 hours. So lets do it!! 
We were so excited to get these cute Nuby water bottles to help keep my cute little Brownies hydrated this summer. We do a ton of water already. But, they were so excited for Sharks & Dino water bottles!! We made sure to fill our Nuby water bottles with a lot of water and sometimes we would add in some sports drinks with vitamins and minerals that can also help with hydration. We always take a ton of water with us if we leave the house in our cute Nuby water bottles. It is so importantt to stay hydrated. These cute little water bottles are linked below in all colors and prints! You will love them. My boys love them!

 Little Submarine. Pull my string and watch me go!! Aren't these the cutest little toys ever!?? 
My boys absolutely love these little Subs.
They wanted their SUBS to be NEW pool toys. So, i said sure why not??! We packed up for the pool and took these new little SUBS with us! They have been loving every second with them. They had so much fun!! 








All of these Nuby products were gifted to me. These are all of my own opinions. I hope you love them as much as we do!!

Wet 'N' Wild PHX

A few weeks ago we were able to take a Saturday & attend a Mommy blogger event at Wet 'N' Wild in PHX. I didn't tell the kids we were going till the morning of. I wanted it to be a surprise!! They always ask to go to water parks in AZ. But we just havent been yet. Sooo we were so excited to be able to go to this event. The kids were so happy & thought we were amazing to be taking them. I love when they are so happy and excited. We left early around 740 because it takes a little over a hour to get there. The kids are always good in the car. So the drive was just fine. 
We arrived, checked in and mingled with some friends. They opened the park a hour early. So we could check out a NEW exciting area. It's called Barefootin' Bay!! It's a exciting new upgrade to Wet 'n' Wild Jr. including a new 4,700 square-foot kid's pool, interactive play structure, shade and more lounge chairs in a secluded area just for kids and parents. It it seriously amazing. We all loved it. It is so amazing for kiddos and parents. Everything thing you need is right there. You don't even have to go to the other areas of the park. If you don't want to. The kids had so much fun and so did we. You can even go on the small slides in that area with them. Which was so fun!
 Cuties in SWIM ZIP wear











Here is some more FUN FACTS on the cute Wet 'N' Wild JR.
** We got a perfect spot & set up. They have chairs and its great! They had 3 mini slides that are great for all ages. You can go with your kids or watch from the side lines. I loved it. 

Tiny Typhoon

Perfect for children, Tiny Typhoon will spin riders through a mini funnel before dropping them into the calming waters below.

Screamin' Streamers

A fun and leisurely downhill river rafting ride for the entire family. Riders will experience small turns and slight drops before plunging into the water below.

Banzai Racers

Racing slides for the park's youngest visitors, Banzai Racers allow riders to compete side-by-side on a racing mat before splashing into the water below.



My boys loved all of these rides and Barefootin' Bay so much!! Once we play for about 2 hours in this area. We went and explored the rest of Wet 'N' Wild. It was so fun. Reggie was tall enough to go on every slide. Sooo he was sooo excited about that. We went on some wild ones. Everything was really clean and the lines weren't too bad. I suggest bringing water shoes for everyone in the family. They have cute little shoe holders everywhere in the park too. Its so nice. They also have little life vests you can use too. Pack a lot of water and sun screen! We stayed almost all day! We loved it. Here are some fun pictures from our day! We will definitely be heading back to Wet 'N' Wild again soon. 
PS -- I will be hosting a giveaway on my instagram for 4 tickets to Wet 'N' Wild! So head over to my instagram this week & check it out! 
Andddd a Season Pass pays for itself in less than 2 visits ! So amazing. Check them out here and all other great info on the water park!!
