Get Ready For Swim Season With The Best Women’s Swimwear


Whether you’re ready for swim season or not, it’s here. Our minds are so ready, but our bodies are not quite there yet. Our bodies are, as Alison from The Alison Show recently (and lovingly) said about her own body, “squishy.” Yes, we are also squishy.

As women (and moms) we are relentless on our bodies ALL THE TIME to look like the models on the cover of magazines and women we see everyday on our social media feeds. They are beautiful, but so are you!

Yes, working out is good for physical and mental health, and we highly recommend it. Eating healthy is good for our immunity, and overall health, so we do our best to make smart choices. But, at the same time, we have to accept the God-given beauty that is our own. We have curves. We have small boobs. Sometimes we love to eat potato chips after a healthy salad. We will never have long, runway ready legs. We have smile wrinkles around our eyes. We have scars. We have given birth to beautiful babies. We are amazing.

Alison continued, “So, gimme a (high-five emoji) if you promise to reassign the energy you spend hating or being hard on your body TODAY, tomorrow, hell forever, to thinking of way to make your home, neighborhood or community a more loving place. And, I promise to do the same. LOVE AND SQUISHINESS TO ALL OF YOU!”

What do you say to that? You in? We are! Work on all your self-love (and love others around you), and hopefully you’ll be more confident for swimsuit season! When you’re ready, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite swimsuits of the season.

Make a splash at the pool, or beach this year!

Sunny Days Call For DIY Trucker Hats


As I painted some super cool DIY trucker hats for my kids for Momtastic, I realized that I have never seen Jenna in a baseball hat. It’s a go-to for Jodi and I, and our mom has more baseball hats than shoes (maybe that’s where we get it). Jenna prefers shoes. Maybe if I make Jenna a DIY trucker hat, she will wear it?!

You can read the tutorial for DIY trucker hats here. No sewing required.


If you’re not up for making a DIY, shop for some cute one’s below. We picked some out for the whole family.

We Heart Stripes


Jessica got craftsy with an H&M shirt for Momtastic. It must have been luck (or maybe she’s got style), but she transformed a blue and white striped shirt into a DIY off the shoulder top that’s currently hot and in-style.

We love stripes of all kinds – pinstripes, seersucker, wide and thin. We’re in love with the classic stripes that scream summer, sophistication and class. If you’re not into DIYs, or don’t want to tackle this one (you can totally do it because it’s no-sew), we get it. We’ve got you covered with some fabulous finds below.



DIY Paint Splatter Jeans


Jessica and her daughter went crazy with paint! It was the first, and maybe only time, Gabriella could throw paint around and cover her jean skirt with non-washable bright colors. It’s a must-do project for any color and paint-loving kids.

DIY Earrings As Sweet As A Pineapple


We find inspiration for our blog from everything around us – magazines, colorful patterns, Pinterest, blogs, people, nature and fashion. Sometimes an idea for a future project and party comes to us late at night when we can’t sleep. Other times, we are brainstorming out loud. The idea for these adorable DIY pineapple earrings came to us while perusing the aisles of Pier 1 Imports (one of our fave home stores). We stood in front of a tropical themed tablescape looking at tiny pineapple table confetti. Instead of seeing it for what it was, we saw the tiny fruit die-cuts as DIY earrings. We call it our confetti hack.

We love pineapples, we crave piña coladas on the beach (our favorite vacation drink growing up was virgin piña colada’s and strawberry daiquiri’s) and we love a good DIY. So, this was a really fun pineapple project to work on.

These DIY earrings would make for lovely gifts for girlfriends and mom (Mother’s Day is coming up, y’all).

So bring me two piña coladas (or pineapples)
One for each ear. 




Use the pliers to open two earring jump rings. One will go in the middle largest opening in the top of the pineapple, and the other will attach to the first ring and the earring wire hoops. Use the pliers to close the rings. The pineapples are thin, so be gentle with them.




If you want to present them in a cute way, use a small hole punch to punch two holes in a card stock tag. Insert the earrings through the holes and add the safety backs. A tassel makes everything cuter, so we attached a colorful tassel. Finally, add a custom touch with a hello beautiful pineapple stamp. We made the stamp with our Silhouette Mint, which is so easy and fun to use. We can a little stamp happy each time we use it.





When you make/wear the earrings, carry these pineapple vibes…

be like a pineapple
stand tall,
wear a crown,
& be sweet on the inside
