K, so tell me if you can resonate with this: the older my little Jack gets, the more interested he is in technology. In fact, it alarms me how well he knows his way around iPhones and iPads already (yiiiikes). And while I didn’t think that online security and parental controls would be a concern of mine by the time my child was the tender age of two, turns out it is. I have realized that there really isn’t such a thing as worrying about that too soon. And here’s a perfect example of why: true story you guys, I was browsing Pinterest on my iPhone one day, and all of the sudden I see a nude photo of a woman in my feed. Like whaaaaaa? Yeah. Straight up pornography. In my Pinterest feed. What the heck right? I was stunned. I of course reported the pin right away, but then I kept on scrolling. To my disgust and astonishment, there were more nude photos in my news feed. I literally could not believe it. And ya know what my very first thought was? I thought ‘what if Jack had been using my phone to watch YouTube Kids, and then got out of that app, randomly by chance clicked on the Pinterest app, and then started scrolling through my Pinterest feed and ended up seeing these nude photos? What if that had happened? At his perfect, sweet, tender little innocent age of TWO?!’ I couldn’t even bare the thought of it… which is what provoked me to write a seriously heinous email to Pinterest expressing my irate frustrations with what had just happened. But my point is: that is the kind of thing I’m talking about. That is what concerns me.
Ok guys – let’s get straight to the point here: I heart Dolce Vita. Like whoa. I own several pairs, and I just love love love all of them. I teamed up with Dolce Vita and Zappos today to showcase a couple of boots from their fall collection. So let’s talk about these beauts!

Happy Hump Day homies! Chase and I went on a day-date last Saturday, and it was Deeeeeelightful with a capital D. I love me a day-date. We didn’t do anything fancy – got some hot choco and walked/sat around one of our favorite nearby parks, and just acted like big idiots together – cuz that’s how we do. Oh, and we also had a photographer take pics of us, NBD – not weird at all. Wanna know what was 1% weird though? Being at the park without our kids… and by weird I mean totally awesome. The truth is, weekly dates with this handsome hubby of mine have been vital in keeping me sane as we continue to wade through all of sweet Charlie’s health shenanigans. SO, in that spirit, I wanted to share some Fall date ideas with you today! Fall is my absolute favorite season (Have I mentioned that? Har-har… that’s a joke see cuz I say that in literally like every single post lately. Durrrrrrf.), and fall romance is all the better! It’s the perfect time to try out some new, fun dates with your life’s love.
Also need to mention the shoes Chase and I are wearing (Mine || His). They’re by Born Shoes, and I gotta be honest – normally when I think of Born, I think comfort shoe… which doesn’t immediately make me think adorable shoe – feel me? BUT, just look at these? How cute are they? Born has slayed with their new fall line. They’ve totally bridged the gap between comfort and style. Chasee and I snagged these beauts from Dillards – a no-fail place to shop, online or otherwise. Woot! Seriously though guys – you musssst try the Born Garcia boot that I have on. My feet feel high on life cuz they’re so darn comfy, plus they’re such a cute color, and they go with so many things. Hashtag winning! Let me know if you have any questions about them!

Ok, so here’s the deal: I have been coveting a real leather jacket for liiiiiiiiiike… a long time. Like 10 years long-ish. And I have tried on SO many of them over the years. But for whatever reason, I just could never bring myself to pull the trigger on any of them. It’s been largely due to the fact that real leather is expensive (obvi), but the other reason is that I could never find a jacket that I loved enough to justify what I’d be spending on it. That is until I found this one. I’ve gotten a fair amount of questions about leather jackets over my blogging life span, so I thought I would finally write a post about why I love this jacket so much and why I finally gave in to purchasing a real leather jacket…
