Birthday Weekend In Santa Barbara | Ann-Marie Loves

For my birthday, I only wanted one thing: a trip away with my husband sans baby. As much as I love Briar, I hadn’t spent a night apart from her since she was born so the thought of being baby-free was, well, all too appealing. And guess what? It was wonderful! Actually, it was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had. Just me, my husband, and one of the prettiest cities in  the world. Briar spent the weekend with my parents and while John and I missed her terribly, it was exactly what we needed to reconnect as a couple.

Some of the highlights include: coffee at The French Press, hot chocolate at Handlebar Coffee Roasters, seafood enchiladas and margaritas at Cava, shopping on State Street, brunch at Scarlett Begonia, and sunsets over the Pacific. If this weekend was any indication of what 29 will be like, then I am READY.

As of Late | November Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Eating leftovers for every meal. No complaints.

Rocking these black Nike shoes with my leggings. I always feel like I either sacrifice comfort for style or vice versa when it comes to footwear + leggings, but these do both! I’m excited to wear them out while Christmas shopping or visiting Disneyland!

Wanting to make an advent calendar for my little family but thinking that this colorful version from Target might be better than anything I could DIY.

Wearing this lovely pale pink lipstick daily. Not only is it the perfect shade for everyday wear but the packaging is top notch!

Feeling so thankful for my friends.

Enjoying my new short hair! I may not be able to wear my signature top knot anymore but it feels AMAZING to have a new style.

Digging this song still (SO OVERPLAYED, I KNOW), especially the Sam Smith cover! It reminds me of Drake’s other song from two years ago when John and I heard it everywhere we went on our honeymoon. Happy memories :)

Editing photos from the cutest grandparents + grandkids shoot! Can’t wait to share more!

Thinking that this faux-fur collared dress would be the perfect Christmas outfit for Briar!

Offering 25% off everything in my shop now through Wednesday. Use code CYBERMONDAY.

Loving Snapchat. Really, really loving it.

Listening to Gretchen Rubin’s podcast episode about rebels (my tendency in her Four Tendencies framework) and nodding my head repeatedly! Have you guys taken the quiz? Which tendency are you?

Hoping that these books might show up under my tree: Wildflower, Rising Strong, and Yes Please.

Announcing the Kohl’s gift card winner in the post below!

Looking forward to taking Briar to Kidspace again in the near future! We had a great time exploring the museum on Saturday.

Agreeing with every bit of this quote from Hannah Brencher: “You don’t read the last page and then decide if it is worth the meat in the middle. You draw breaths in and out. You crawl away from the sheets too early in the morning. You send emails. You fall in love. You put gas in your car. You learn names. You do plenty of things you don’t want to do. You dance. You sometimes overstay your welcome and drink too much wine. You eat tacos. Too much queso. You wonder if you can subsist on chips and salsa alone for the rest of your life. You call home. You slam doors. You let people in.”

29 | Ann-Marie Loves

This past Sunday I turned twenty nine. TWENTY NINE. The final year of my twenties. In all honesty, I feel amazing…spectacular, even! Twenty eight was not my best year by a loooooong shot and I am more than happy to put it in the past and begin anew. But that’s not to say twenty eight was a complete bust; there were many beautiful moments, both big and small.

Here are 29 of my favorite moments from 28:

1. Briar sleeping through the night!
2. Enjoying the pumpkin patch at Underwood Farms.
3. Working twice a week with Amy.
4. Many Disneyland adventures.
5. Honey bee lattes on the regular.
6. Discovering so many amazing podcasts! My favorites from the past year are The Girl Next Door, Totally Mommy, and Call Your Girlfriend.
7. Friday night dates with my husband.
8. Having family nearby again.
9. Deciding to pursue what I’ve been wanting to do all along…photography!
10. Learning how to forgive myself. (Still working on that one.)
11. Being a part of my dear friend’s gorgeous wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch.
12. Taking all the Zumba classes again! I’m just as in love with it now as I was three years ago.
13. Feeling my heart burst as I watch Briar reach so many milestones with aplomb. She’s such an amazing little girl, I can’t believe she’s mine!
14. Reading this book.
15. Taking a weekend trip to San Diego.
16. Spending New Years in Cambria with family (Briar’s first vacation!).
17. Going for lots of walks with Briar in her stroller and headphones in my ears.
18. Seeing myself and my beautiful bridesmaids on Buzzfeed (#23)!
19. Leggings, poncho, and booties. Oh, and a top knot always. #momstyle
20. LOL’ing over John dressed up as me for Halloween. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time!
21. My baby turned one!
22. Social media. I’m just as obsessed as ever!
23. Working on Briar’s scrapbook.
24. Feeling so motivated to move and hit 10k steps daily thanks to my Fitbit!
25. Celebrating Briar’s first holiday season (oh em gee, I’m even more pumped for this year!).
26. Loving Parenthood right up to the very end! Favorite show ever.
27. My ten year high school reunion! It was so good to see old friends after all this time!
28. Dancing like a maniac at such a beautiful Espinoza family wedding.
29. Spending my last night as a twenty eight year old in Santa Barbara with my favorite guy. It was exactly what I needed to close one chapter and start another…

As of Late | October Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Discovering that Gabby Bernstein has a podcast and downloading every single episode as fast as possible! Oh em gee, I’m obsessed. Other podcasts I’m enjoying: The Party Podcast and Matrimoney.

Working on Briar’s Halloween costume with John (there’s nothing quite like the last minute!).

Loving Snapchat! I was such a grandma about it for longest time (“how does this contraption work?”), but once I figured it out, I was hooked! You can follow me at @annmarieloves!

Speaking of Halloween, I seriously LOL’d over this Buzzfeed article. I hope that my kids have quirky taste in costumes!

Feeling extra competitive when it comes to workweek challenges with friends on Fitbit! I love the extra boost of motivation that comes from wanting to have the highest step count for the week.

Sneaking in episodes of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in between endless replays of The Aristocats (a certain fourteen month old is obsessed) and liking it!

Starting to do a little Christmas shopping for my favorite tiny person. I’m mainly focusing on clothes (these jammies and these kitty ballet slippers!), big toys that will help her burn off some of that boundless energy (this activity gym or this play kitchen), and I’m hoping that my dad just might build her a toddler bed! ;)

Feeling like I could have written this post, right down to the title. It’s been a weird and rocky year for me but I’m working on it.

Realizing that this may be a little TMI, but you guys…I just bought new bras for myself (FINALLY) and they are life-changing. My body is not what it was pre-baby and it’s time that I start embracing that!

Taking Briar to Gymboree several times a week and really enjoying it! I love watching her run and climb and interact with other babies her own age. Plus she’s learning how to put toys away, so there’s that.

Checking off two years of marriage this past Monday.

Wanting to make homemade crayons in the shape of letters using these silicone trays I especially love the blended look of this DIY!

Going to therapy for the first time in my life and really digging it. I secretly have a desire to become a therapist in my next life.

Working out as often as possible, whether it be in the form of a Zumba class or a long walk. Exercise is everything.

Feeling grateful that cooler weather is kind of, sort of (?) happening here in Southern California. I am so ready to eat some soup and wear some socks.


pumpkin patch at underwood farms.

Pumpkin Patch at Underwood Farms | Ann-Marie Espinoza Photography

This past weekend we ventured out to Moorpark and visited the amazing pumpkin patch at Underwood Farms. I had a feeling that Briar would enjoy it a lot more this year at the age of fourteen months than she did last year at two months (obvious statement?), but I had no idea how much more I would enjoy it, too! Since the farm is humongous, there were plenty of things to do and it was a blast seeing it all through Briar’s eyes! She and her cousin Luna were especially fond of grabbing fistfuls of hay, which they passed back and forth to each other (ha!). My favorite part was definitely the tractor ride around the farm at dusk. Not only was the sunset lighting PERFECT, but the sweater-worthy weather and the cool breeze made it feel like our first real taste of fall this season…exactly how I like my pumpkin patch experiences.

life with a one year old.

Life With a One Year Old | Ann-Marie Loves

Life with a one year old is crazy, busy, challenging, and SO MUCH FUN. Like I’ve said every time before, each new age is more fun than the last. When Briar turned one, I thought the baby stage was officially over, but as it turns out, she is still my little one.

Life With a One Year Old | Ann-Marie Loves

I feel incredibly lucky that Briar has an amazing palette and a huge appetite for food. It’s so nice to only have to make a single meal and be able to share it with her. The only food she is mildly hesitant about eating is hummus, but I have faith that in due time, she will see the light ;) She’s also still nursing a few times a day, which, to be honest, I have mixed feelings about. From the beginning, my goal was to nurse her for a full year, but that twelve months came and went and she has shown zero interest in stopping! Selfishly, I would love to put an end to breastfeeding so I can have my body all to myself before the next baby comes along. However, nursing is still her ultimate source of comfort and I would hate to take that away from her. We will see how it goes…

Life With a One Year Old | Ann-Marie Loves

A few weeks ago, we decided to ditch the crib and put her mattress on the floor in hopes that it would lessen our sleeping woes. I’m happy to report that she LOVES having her bed on the ground and all the independence that it entails, but it still hasn’t stopped her from waking up at least once (sometimes twice) a night. SIGH. Getting Briar to sleep consistently has been our biggest battle since the beginning, but I’m hoping she will come around one of these days. In the meantime, we will continue to keep her routine as structured as possible and most importantly, try to keep our patience. Two steps forward, one step back, right?

Life With a One Year Old | Ann-Marie Loves

One of the most exciting developments over the past couple of months has been her blossoming sense of humor! She giggles all the time and it never fails to make me giggle right along with her! I remember the first time I heard her laugh (I think she was around three months?) and it stopped me dead in my tracks. It was one of those life-changing moments where I was overcome with love for the tiny little person I created. Now she giggles over everything — slurping sounds, dogs licking her face, being spun around — and it continues to be music to my ears.

The other amazing development that has started to take shape is her greater understanding and application of the world around her. For example, she gives kisses on command, she loves to clean her high chair tray when I hand her a paper towel and say “wipe your tray,” she can find and retrieve items when I ask her to get them (“where’s your water cup?”), and she knows people by name. It’s incredible to watch things start to click in her mind! Briar is also a huge fan of books (Brown Bear is her favorite), walking / running everywhere, and playing with anything that isn’t a toy (Tupperware, measuring cups, shoes, etc). Basically, she is pure sunshine in a twenty-two pound body.

Life With a One Year Old | Ann-Marie Loves

Being Briar’s mom is so hard yet so wonderful…I can’t stress that contradiction enough! She works me like a dog, but I’m just so in love with her that it makes even the hardest of days feel completely worthwhile. I often think back to that moment when I opened the envelope and found out I would be having a girl. I had all these visions of what my daughter would look like and be like and I’m happy to report that she has exceeded every single one of my wildest expectations.

Ugh, this girl kills me in the best way possible. I’m putty in her hands.

As of Late | September Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Reveling in all the joy + beauty that took place this past weekend at Janelle + Kyle’s wedding! (I mean, seriously, LOOK AT THIS BRIDE). I was so honored to be a part of it and can’t wait to see the photos + video roll in!

Wearing my new sunglasses and feeling an extra pep in my step. I love new sunglasses.

Laughing at Briar’s two new tricks: kissing on command (she really loves smooching babies!) and bumping her sippy cup against my glass when I say “cheers!” Ahhh, it’s the best.

Using more than my fair share of this amazing (and cheap!) dry shampoo on the daily. Oily hair, be gone!

Deciding that this is the season that I will learn a few new recipes! This chicken enchilada soup and these blueberry muffins are really calling my name.

Getting excited to order new books from Elizabeth Gilbert and Brene Brown, just as soon as I finish up my current favorite read.

Living for the Call Your Girlfriend podcast. I know I mentioned it last month, but I still can’t get enough! It’s smart and funny and it reminds me of the relationship I have with my own girlfriends.

Trying to find a decent pair of shoes for my tiny-footed toddler. She wears a size 2 and I’m realizing it’s almost impossible to track down that size anywhere! Moms, any suggestions?

Enjoying the heck out of this interview. Also enjoying the heck out of her podcast!

Stocking up on cold weather clothes for Briar (even though it’s still a million degree out) and am so excited to see her wear this kitty cat shirt (she picked it out!) and this heather gray one piece.

Wanting to order a new Fitbit band, but can’t decide between this floral number or a solid color

Listening to Christmas music while I type this post, despite the fact that it’s 91 degrees outside, the A/C is running, and it may or may not be socially acceptable to admit such things. (P.S. What’s your favorite Christmas song? Mine is “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole.)

Speaking of Christmas, I can’t wait to start designing some fun holiday-related paper goods. Stay tuned ;)

labor day weekend + things i’m loving.

Things I'm Loving | Ann-Marie Loves

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone in the U.S. enjoyed a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I know that Briar and I certainly love it when we get John to ourselves for three whole days! (Especially since he gets up with our little one on weekend mornings so I can sleep in – boom!) We spent our three days sweating it out (HOLY HEATWAVE), barbecuing with family + friends, celebrating our niece’s first birthday, working on my new website, and of course, lazing around. Now it’s back to the grind!

In the spirit of easing back into the work week, here are a few things I am loving these days:

+ You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. I first heard about this book from Alison on Raise Your Hand Say Yes and I had a feeling I would like it. As it turns out, I LOVE IT. I’m reading it with a highlighter in hand so I can mark up all my favorite quotes (basically the whole entire book). I can’t recommend this book enough!

+ 805 Beer. I used a to be a wine girl, but ever since I got sick last month, the taste of it just doesn’t jive with my taste buds anymore (SADNESS)(And no, I’m not pregnant). So now I’m revisiting beer and really, really enjoying it. 805 is my new fave.

+ Working Out. Okay, this is nothing new or revolutionary, but getting to the gym or going on walks everyday makes everything in my life easier. It really does. Plus, now that I have a Fitbit, there’s extra incentive to stay in motion!

+ Lavender + Honey. This adorable coffee shop is my favorite place to get work done or stop in for a quick honeybee latte + chocolate croissant to share with my little partner in crime. I can’t wait until we move back to Pasadena one day and I can be there all the time!

+ Briar + Luna. Now that these two cousins are both one and walking, they’re so much fun to watch! They love playing together and giving each other hugs and kisses. We are now at the stage where it’s actually easier to watch both of them at the same time vs. one at a time because they keep each other entertained! I couldn’t love these two anymore!

+ Target Lounge Shorts. I’m not much for shorts, but sometimes I need to let my legs breathe when it’s a million degrees outside. So when I found these super comfy shorts at Target, I knew they had to come home with me. I wear them around the house, I wear them out in public, I wear them to bed. They’re the perfect solution for staying comfortable during these dog days of summer.

+ Trader Joe’s Melodious Blend. I recently threw these in my cart on a whim and I am SO glad I did! I can’t get enough of it! The mix of lentils, garbanzo beans, and tomatoes is seriously my lunchtime jam. You can find them in the freezer section at your local TJ’s!

+ New podcasts. I’m pretty sure I could start a blog just on podcasts alone! I’m constantly stumbling upon new shows and happily adding them to my rotation. Lately I’ve been loving Edit Your Life, Call Your Girlfriend, Totally Married, and The Simple Show.

What are you loving these days?

Mom Style | Summer Picks for Toddlers Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

It’s hard to believe that Jamie and I are no longer moms of infants, but instead, two super curious, super adorable toddlers! (I could swear we were just pregnant??) Things are definitely a little (okay, A LOT) different than they were last summer when we had our babies, so we thought it would be fun to share our recent favorite baby products. Here’s what’s getting us through these long, hot days:

Mom Style | Summer Picks for Toddlers Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Ann-Marie’s Picks:

+ Swimsuit // I gotta say, shopping for baby swimsuits is one heck of a lot more fun than shopping for mommy suits! I’ve found some really cute ones at Baby Gap and Janie + Jack.

+ Toes, Ears, & Nose // We’ve been reading to Briar since she was only a few days old, but books are just now becoming her activity of choice. She is especially fond of this cute book, complete with flaps and fun illustrations.

+ Sun hat // Getting Briar to wear a hat is always an exercise in trying to distract her before she notices something is on her head, but this sun hat is in constant rotation.

+ Ban.do Watermelon Bag // So technically this bag is designed to be a cooler, but from the moment I saw it, I knew it would make for the perfect diaper bag! Not only is it ridiculously cute but the waterproof liner is ideal for keeping spills and odors at bay.

+ Beco Gemini Baby Carrier // I’ve talked about my love of baby carriers before, but I have to say, I love that this particular model allows me to safely wear Briar facing out! I’m a stickler about protecting her hips and Briar is a stickler about making sure she doesn’t miss a moment of the action, so this Beco Gemini is a win-win!

+ Triangle Blanket // This adorable hot pink / tan / black waterproof blanket from 7 A.M. Enfant is perfect for throwing in Briar’s diaper bag and spreading out on the grass.

+ Dapple High Chair + Toy Cleaner // Having a hungry, hungry toddler means lots of snacks eaten in her high chair. Since I don’t want to pull off and scrub down the tray every time Briar eats, I spray a little bit of this natural, baby-safe cleaner on it and call it good.

+ Gold Saltwaters // Now that Briar’s main mode of transportation is walking, it’s paramount that we have little shoes on her little feet when we go out in public. These baby Saltwaters are easily the cutest things I’ve ever seen…!

+ Bumgenius Cloth Diapers // We’re a little late to the cloth diapering club, but I am happy to finally be a part-time member! Even though we still use disposable diapers the majority of the time, having a few cloth diapers on hand helps ease the environmental and financial guilt of traditional diapering, plus it ensures that we never run out! I also love how these well-designed diapers can pass as bloomers during these unbearably hot summer months.

Mom Style | Summer Picks for Toddlers Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Jamie’s Picks:

Mini Lunch Bag // I’ve used this bag since my pumping days! My breast milk stayed chilled on the long commute home from the clinic. Now, each morning I pull it out of the freezer and fill it with Luna’s meals for Grandpa Day Care.

+ Hot Pink Bathing Suit // This hot pink suit with yellow pom fringe caught my eye right away. Luna loves birds! Her face lights up when she points to the little birds on her suit.

+ Sunglasses // Luna loves a good pair of shades. Target has adorable inexpensive sunglasses so I don’t feel bad when a pair gets broken.

+ Maracas // Luna lives for music! She’ll find the beat and rhythm in anything. She dances and sings daily. She definitely dances like no one is watching, although she prefers to be watched. Her grandmother sings with her all the time. They are currently going through an old western song phase. Luna’s father will slow dance with her in the middle of a busy restaurant. I’ll turn the music up and rolled the windows down during our car rides. I love seeing her lips move and head bop in the backseat mirror. I hope her love for music and dance contuinue to grow.

+ Sandals // I don’t like to spend too much on Luna’s shoes so when I found these darling sandals on the clearance rack at T.J. Maxx, I scooped them right up! If she’s anything like her mother, she will live in sandals.

+ Baby Fedora // From day one, Luna has loved wearing hats. Luckily, this means we don’t have to apply so much sunscreen to her face. This makes Luna very happy.

+ Sippy Cup // Spill proof! Yes, please! I never leave home without a sippy cup full of water. It always finds its way to the bottom of my diaper bag, upside down of course.

+ Mexican Blanket // This particular blanket was a lucky thrift find and now it comes with us everywhere. It’s always in my trunk waiting to be pulled out at every park stop. (Similar blankets here!)

+ Babyganics Baby Sunscreen // I’m very particular with the products I put on Luna. Minimal organic ingredients. The less ingredients, and ones I can pronounce, the better.

But if we’re realllllly being honest, here’s our secret to staying cool while keeping our cool as the moms of two toddlers. Cheers!

As of Late | Ann-Marie Loves | Card by Goldpress Paper

Wanting to frame this adorable hand-lettered card from Goldpress Paper!

Feeling incredibly grateful for my health after a bout with food poisoning last week. Also, it makes me think I may not be THAT ready for first trimester nausea again ;)

Reading The Year of Magical Thinking after renewing my library card on Monday. So far, I really like it!

Listening to The Momo Show nonstop. Also! I have a title for my future podcast series. I’ve told a few people about it already and I’m excited to get the wheels in motion.

Walking now more than ever thanks to the encouragement of my new Fitbit! Late night laps around the house to reach 10k steps is a daily occurrence.

Eagerly awaiting the end of summer (not until late October for Southern California), but still trying to enjoy “summery” moments: feeling the A/C on my face as I shower, having so many hours of daylight to shoot photos, taking Briar swimming…I guess summer’s not that bad. Actually, yes it is.

Rewatching Parenthood and feeling all the emotions on a deeper level now that I’ve been at this parenting gig for a whole year.

Planning upcoming photo shoots and feeling total excitement, which is how creative projects should always feel!

Loving everything ban.do at the moment! I seriously love my new Florabunda planner (I FEEL SO ORGANIZED!) and the watermelon cooler bag that I turned into Briar’s new diaper bag. Give me all the kitsch.

Reveling in happy memories from the bridal shower that we threw for my dear friend Janelle last Saturday. I’m beyond excited for her big day.

Thinking ahead to the holidays! We have a few good Halloween costume ideas up our sleeves. Let’s see if we can execute them before October 31st at 4pm…

Loving Elise’s Get to Work Book videos. I love to get inside the minds of super organized + efficient people.

Treating myself to iced coffees from the Starbucks drive-thru every few days. Yes, I could totally save money by making my own iced coffee at home, but there’s nothing quite like somebody handing me my drink through the window of my air-conditioned car. Also, it keeps Briar contained for five minutes and that is NO SMALL FEAT.

Hearing good things about this book and adding it to my wish list.

Living by this quote from Danielle LaPorte: “Focus on the energy of the solution.” BOOM.
