Fall weather is officially here in Seattle. I love rainy, foggy days…but especially love dressing for the cooler weather! I recently had the opportunity to work with Børn Footwear, who makes amazing shoes & boots! When I worked at a department store back in college, I got to see all the new styles they came out with each season, and was able to see the quality and versatility of their shoes up close! They make great shoes, but I especially LOVE their boots…and every fall/winter season I pick out a pair that I love to add to my wardrobe.

 I have had my eyes on these Wynd Boots ever since I saw them online a few weeks ago!! I love the western vibe they give, and the full grain leather they are made with. I found out they also come in SEVEN colors!!! I chose the Grey because I felt it could go with more, and I already have too many black boots! J You can find them at Dillards or online at Dillards.com!

For this outfit, I paired the Wynd Boots with a long sweater dress, and warm jacket!! A perfect option when the weather isn’t super cold or snowy, & since I think dresses look cute with an ankle boot! I love that this boot has zippers on the back, to easily take on and off!! You could also pair these with some denim and a cozy sweater (I just love that combo)! There are honestly a lot of ways to wear these boots and they are just SO DANG COMFY.

This post is sponsored by Sargento, but all opinions are my own!*

Everyone is gearing up for back to school or even started school already! Marloe doesn’t start preschool quite yet, but I am already prepping mentally for that day!

Tortilla Roll-ups (or pinwheels) are among the foods that both Marloe and Sorel love. I often make them when we’re heading to the beach, or on-the-go since they are easy to make and pack up for the car! I love quick meals that don’t take too much effort, but are a wholesome delicious option that the entire family loves!!! These Roll-ups hit the spot & leave my girls asking for more! MOM WIN!!! During back to school season, cooking is the last thing on your mind. So the solution is making simple recipes packed full of flavor with none of the fuss, like these easy Mini Ham & Cheese Tortilla Roll-ups!

These are so yummy, and use very few ingredients--best part is that you might already have most of these ingredients at home already! My girls love helping me make them, and love to spread the cream cheese on the tortillas! These Roll-ups are awesome to have on hand, and are a great meal or snack for adults and kiddos! Their mini size is perfect for a quick bite & fits easily in a child’s hand!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE YUMMIEST ROLL-UPS

  • Use Sargento® Cheese slices! They are the perfect real, natural cheese that is great for your family, and a taste everyone will love. We used Sargento® Colby-Jack slices, but you can mix it up and use any flavor!

  • Use 8 inch round flour tortilla shells!! I buy whole wheat ones & they work perfectly.

  • Use at least 6-8 slices of ham per tortilla. Also, feel free to switch it up and use turkey or other meat!!

  • VERY IMPORTANT! For best results, roll tortillas tightly.

  • Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight before cutting to get nice cuts!!!

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  2. Top with 2-3 slices of Sargento® Cheese and 3-4 slices of ham.

  3. Tightly roll up tortilla and wrap in plastic.

  4. Put in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

I cannot believe we have had our Goldendoodle Chooiee for over 4 years now! I can still remember him as a sweet curly little puppy, who loved to play, and had the softest little bark! We got Chooiee a few months before we gave birth to our first daughter Marloe, and they have basically grown up together! It’s been so sweet see how he has reacted to each baby, and how much he protects and loves them!!! Today I am sharing some of Chooiees personality traits, and some general characteristics of most Goldendoodle breeds! If you’re looking into getting a Goldendoodle, then you’re in the right place for lots of helpful info!!!


Goldendoodle’s are crossbreed between standard Poodles & Golden Retrievers, that have been around since the 1960s. They were originally bred as a guide dog for blind people with allergies to non hyper allergenic dogs. Although they shed very minimally, they need to be groomed regularly and would benefit from clipping to maintain a neat coat and appearance. We try to get Chooiee groomed once a month, or his hair gets crazy tangled and matted!


Like its parent breeds, this pooch is super intelligent and gentle, making it an ideal companion and great for families. When looking into getting a dog, we knew we wanted a gentle giant to watch over and play with our kids, and Chooiee is just that and more! Goldendoodle’s are also a very active breed and won’t be content in an apartment setting with no access to a yard to play in! Goldendoodle’s come in lots of colors, but the most common ones are cream, golden, and chocolate brown!The Goldendoodle has parent breeds with positive personality traits, which is why this cross is a popular family companion. It loves being surrounded by its family and being part of their activities. We know this to be true with Chooiee, because he never wants to miss out on any family walk or outing! :) Because of its warm and playful personality, it is not an ideal guard dog. It is friendly and patient towards children and gets along with other dogs and small animals. Chooiee is the most patient and playful pup with Marloe and Sorel...they could climb and pull and step on him, and he wouldn’t even flinch! He just loves being their teddy bear brother! :)


We learned quickly after getting Chooiee as a puppy, that Goldendoodle’s have very sensitive stomachs! They don’t do well eating table scraps or food that falls on the floor! We made sure to find the right food for our doodle, so that he can stay around for the long haul! A typical serving for an adult Goldenpoodle is 1 to 4 cups, depending on size, of excellent quality dry dog food! Our pup is 70 pounds, so we feed him 4 cups a day!!!


A few months back we switched to Purina® ONE® True Instinct Premium Real Turkey & Venison Dry Dog Food for Chooiee along with mixing in some Purina® ONE® Smartblend Sensitive Systems Formula - 16.5 lbs, and he has since been much more active & alert—with zero stomach issues!!! Feeding your pet wholesome dog food is SO IMPORTANT! I love that Purina® ONE® is dedicated to the lifelong potential of your pet backed by 85 years of Purina research!!!
